I have been Q dining No.of times. It was good in the previous two dining. But this time was bad. The food was cold and the veggie is not fresh at all. A bit disappointed.

The food was again delicious. Tonight I shared the Beef Rib Sirloin. It was cooked perfectly. Thank you again for a great night, we were looked after very well.

After being disappointed with the food, drinks and service during Vivid, it was pleasing to see a return to the level of service and quality of food and drinks to which we are accustomed. My daughter enjoyed the Linguine pasta, Queensland spanner crab meat, roasted red pepper, tomato, chili, fresh basil while I delighted in the Byron Bay Berkshire pork, baked artichokes, tarragon cream, saltbush, almond. All this while savouring the views of Circular Quay. Thank you for an enjoyable pre-concert meal. I highly recommend Q Dining.

Exceptional food and service. Downside was the music from the champagne bar. A bit loud and a bit night clubish but everything else excellent.

We were so looking forward to celebrate our wedding anniversary , only to be bitterly disappointed. I’m an Accor Plus member booked on line Arrived on time , seated and given menus great ... no Had to get up search for the waiter after 15 minutes to ask her to please take our order, who apologised , only to be told that all the other wait staff were on a break ? Sorry I thought I was at a premium establishment not McDonalds Ordered our meals and wines , i ordered the fillet steak , but was not asked how I wanted it cooked ( later when I asked she said it was served medium rare) Another 10 minutes went by , then we had to reminder the waiter that we were still waiting for the wine . Another apology. Another 10 min passed we were getting hungry, everyone was served bread, we weren’t. Again summoned the waiter , again another apology. Meal arrived, linguine over cooked we actually thought it was “packet pasta” Fillet steak over cooked - medium - we did not complain as we were too hungry. Deserts were then ordered, these were ok and served in a timely manner. When the waiter asked how our evening was , we politely informed her of our experience , especially given that was our wedding anniversary ( even this was a great opportunity to acknowledge- which was not) Given we returned here after our Anniversary dinner last year , in which we had such a great experience, even received a tasting desert plate to acknowledge our Anniversary Our latest experience was so disappointing that I will not return, nor will I be renewing our Accor Plus membership Very disappointed

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over a number of years. But it is now not a patch on its former performance. This is shown by the fact that on a busy Sydney Friday night the restaurant was never full. The menu is limited with only one main course fish offering. The wine is expensive and dominated by overseas offerings. The service was pretty average. We were delivered the wrong dishes then the second time around the wrong side dish. There was a huge error in the bill which we only really noticed after we left and had to go back to rectify. All in all a disappointing result from a restaurant in a top class hotel on the edge of Sydney Harbour.

I have to ask twice for top up of sparkling water as the bottle was put away in a wine cooler but the staff is not attentive and prompt to do so. It wasn’t done straightaway even after I asked. The food is average. The poached cod tastes like frozen fish with hardly any flavour apart from those from the side ingredients and sauce. The fish itself is flavourless. The scallops are not served hot enough. Pretty average.

Very disappointed with this restaurant now, has gone downhill sadly decor is old, carpet on stairs frayed, food was very ordinary and they don't serve the beautiful bread anymore which was a feature of this place. This place was a must visit when we're in Sydney not any more, we wont be come back again unless it's upgraded

We have made the booking in advance and clearly requested for a table near the window as we would be celebrating birthday there. We arrived 10 mins before appointment but was told to be seated in the middle of the hall where there was a couple of table by the window available. The staff had told us though we have requested, it was no guarantee that we could get the window table. Plus, she said that there is a glass window anyway so sitting anywhere will be the same. This was so unprofessional. Second disappointment came when they did not bring all the food at the same time when we advised them that we would be sharing the food. I had to ask after 20 mins or so. They apologized and advised that it was a misunderstanding as they served appetizer and would serve main course after then. This is a disappointment as they did not ask if we wanted our food altogether. Our main came short moment after our complaint. However, the Beef sirloin steak was too raw--medium rare (almost rare). It was too chewy and we could not finish the plate. I had to spit out as I could not finish the pieces. The staff never asked how we would like our steak done. This is a big disappointment from such an acclaimed fine dining restaurant. The staff were inattentive. We had to request our glass to fill with the sparkling water and at one point I had to call them 3 times for the sparkling water. One staff opened a new bottle when we have not finished the opened one. Set aside the above, wallaby sirloin and poached cod were really nice. White chocolate yoghurt Crémeux was amazing. We enjoyed these 3 dishes very much. But if the service is this poor, I would not go back and would not recommend anyone to dine here.

High tea extremely overpriced and looked much better than it tasted. Lovely setting though- obviously paying for the view.

The food was delicious and service was pretty good. There weren't very many wines sold by the glass which was a shame.
