Only comment, that attending a French wine dinner a couple of years ago at the restaurant, there was more information spoken about the wines which was interesting.

Food is excellent. The wild mushroom risotto is very tasty and flavourful. The steaks are done very nicely, and the sides are excellent. The sauces that accompany the pork tenderloin are excellent.

I had a table of 6 on Friday 20 October.The staff were very attentive but had to ask who was having what for what for each course. One of my gusts ordered an Americano and half an hour later was given a large coffee. The cocktail she wanted had to be made downstairs and brought up. The table ordered 24 oysters. At 6.30pm on a Friday evening the hotel only had six oysters. What sort of restaurant is this?

Great evening food was good comfortable seating service a bit haphazard Most of the wait staff were great apart from one keep dropping the cutlery and not taking that extra care that one would expect from such an institution All in all relatively good value for money for a special night out

This was booked and comfirmed for the Thursday night. With the email confirmation arriving the day before. Arrived at the restaurant to find that it was closed for a private function and we had to return the next night. Totally inconvenient, 2 lots of transport into the city with addition costs. Really not good enough, and therefore not worth the money that was spent on this.

The restaurant on the 5th Floor has glass walls with access & view to the large outdoor garden area . The food is good and excellent service. The outdoor Garden needs a little face lift with better LED lighting for evening . Overall drinks & dinner experience was excellent with a few drinks in the Garden while we were waiting .

This was one of the best restaurant experiences in our lives. Only problem is that we were offered too much quality wine that was impossible to resist.

I did attend a specific Wine Makers 'La Boheme' Dinner for De Bortoli so my observations are exclusive to the event. I was extremely privileged to be seated at the 'head table' and the conversation was both educational & stimulating whilst being embraced by a very Aussie casualness. Everything about the menu was well presented and conceived. The food was sensational - especially the Duck Breast main course with a Syrah Gamay accompaniment. The wines were perfectly matched - I was particularly impressed by the 'Show Liqueur Muscat' with the 'Chocolate Decadence'. An 'only sometimes' experience for adults! The speed of service might have suffered a little due to timing preparations but - a fantastic evening. Thank you.

We had a fantastic meal and staff friendly but it took over 2 hrs for a three couse meal on a quiet tuesday night. This was not acceptable. We also was disappointed with drinks service as we had our drinks filled initially and that was it. Noone asked if we wouldve liked anything else when we had finished.

I'm very sorry to have to say, but I feel it was some of the worst service I've ever had in a restaurant. Just one example was the waitress saying that the oysters for the night were pacific oysters. However, having ordered the half dozen oysters which I thought to be pacific, were in fact Sydney rock oysters. They were delicious, however, waitress never came back to see or acknowledge if everything was alright etc. etc. etc. and as for a glass of wine or water being delivered to the table.........I shan't proceed, needless to say.....

The stuff were very friendly and professional, the complimentary chocolate platter in acknowledgement of my partner's birthday was a great touch. At the end of the meals we mentioned that one of the mains was too salty to our liking and we didn't enjoy it - the Chef took our comments gracefully and offered us an apology, the establishment took off the cost of one of the meals. Food and service was excellent - deserts exceptional.

Our My fair lady high tea was a lovely event and very well run. A couple of suggestions would be - more communication regarding the way the event will run, some arrangements for getting to the show afterwards and the biggest thing was the shortage of tea with our food! I felt for a late afternoon tea there was a lack of balance between the sweet and savoury foods and in light of the very sweet treats, more tea was needed to wash it down. A couple of choices of tea may make it feel a bit more special too. Overall a great experience, thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the cast of My Fair Lady over high tea on Friday. The Veuve was delicious as was the food, thanks you for a lovely afternoon. It was only the beginning though as the show was absolutely marvellous!
