About Q Dining
Situated on the edge of bustling Circular Quay, this Sydney harbourside restaurant provides an exceptional Sydney dining experience with spectacular views and exceptional service.
Subpar dining experience. Unfortunately I booked here for a birthday dinner last weekend. I had confirmed the booking at 7:45 pm but were not acknowledged by staff members until half an hour later. We booked were six people and once a staff member had finally acknowledged us they confirmed that our group would have to eat split up in two different tables or had to cram in a four-seater table which would not have been possible as it only smugly fit for four chairs. We had asked to contact the manager on duty but they had responded that there was no manager. Furthermore, we did not get served until an hour and a half AFTER the booking. We had finally tried to call the servers when we could see that a table that came after us had already left as they had finished their meal before we even had our orders taken. The servers also did not know what Q dining's own menu was as we booked through the Fork's menu but they stated that it was not their menu. We had booked through this restaurant for this set menu but had to order one main dish and some sides which all came an hour later. At this point, it was past 9 pm and our group was very hungry. Two tables that came before us had already left after finishing their meals even before we could order. We also had to ask for water for a total of four times and it was never served to us. The that was served were all cold with only the sides seeming to. be fresh. The servers never acknowledged how late they were with the food, water, or service but seemed to think that would be acceptable in a fine dining location. To pay a premium price and to experience this sort of dining experience this poorly was something I've never experienced in my life. There should be a certain level of service and timeframe for the dining experience that this restaurant did not reach. Really disappointing and I would highly recommend you to not dine here.
When I waited at the entrance, no one came to greet me until 10 mins later. Another 10 mins wait to get a staff to take our order. During this wait, no one even came to us to offer some water. Then more than 30 mins wait for food. Unbelievably poor service.
We waited 30 minutes and didn’t even get seated. Atrocious!!! We ended up eating elsewhere. Terrible service!! We will not be recommending this restaurant in future or attending ever again. Very very very disappointing!!! And you call yourself a 5 star establishment. What a laugh
Amazing food and service love the ambiance of this restaurant. One of my favourites.
The staff were great anD the food was amazing.
Having dined at Q Dining on many occasions, I was somewhat disappointed with the venues management for maintaining a safe distance between all dining patrons.This was exasperated when we met a Chef in the bathroom wearing her Apron. Most unacceptable on a number of levels, including basic hygiene practices.
Fabulous meal, wonderful location, fairly priced. Absolutely loved it! We just couldn't work out why we had never heard of it before and why it wasn't packed as it deserves to be.
The excellent food , great service and superb views were overshadowed by the loud noise from the music and patrons emanating from the venue above the restaurant.
Very disappointed with service overall. There were only three tables occupied at six when we came. We were completely ignored by staff and had to call them each time we wanted something. This happened from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. When we finally manage to summon someone to take our orders, she was very pleasant and the food did come quickly. But, the food was also extremely disappointing. When I ordered I asked for my meal to be extra spicy. It wasn’t. And the girl taking my order even said I wouldn’t need to ask for this because it would be spicy enough! . Extremely disappointing and I will not be returning ever.
I had a pasta but found it had curry taste there, in a pasta! Sorry I felt sick the whole night after I had a pasta with curry taste.
Wonderful meal with great staff, service and atmosphere. We loved it and will definitely come back soon. The only odd thing was the strange negative answer when my wife asked for a to-go box for her leftover meal. Please make arrangements for that or tell us to bring our own solid food container next time so we can enjoy your great cooking for lunch the next day if we can't finish that evening.
Lovely atmosphere & views, very bright though. Food was good, although my lamb was not very hot. Service was average, had to get up from the table & get our wine from the ice bucket, glasses had been empty at least 10mins. We received a nice dessert plate to share as it was 3 of our birthdays...but it came very late, we were about to pay our bill, then had to return to our table to enjoy it.
Food great for dinner Breakfast average Only once offered a drink during 2 hours. You can see potential, bar upstairs and loud noise distorted the experience.
Hi The noise from the floor above was really off putting for the atmosphere & service just slow.
One of our best meals . Q has a great location and food and service it Excellent. Thank you for a great 1st experience and we shall be back
Water glass wasn’t clean, it had lipstick stains. Had to ask for water to be replenished. Had to show waitress what wine we wanted from the wine list.
Very good food, definitely will go again. Service needs improvement, tables are not at the same height and the round tables are hard to manage for group booking. I learned how to request square tables next time.
Lovely food, friendly attentive service and an impressive wine list. Plenty of variety on the menu and everything was prepared beautifully. Only minor comment - the restaurant is starting to look a little tired (the carpet tiles were noticeably worn-out).
Fantastic venue with spectacular food and view. Really great place to meet friends and be able to talk without having to shout to be heard. Great staff
Very nice food. Beautiful location. It was an excellent dining experience. Thank you Q Dining!
Amazing food, service very good, a real delight to dine
We were surprised to be given marmalade with out high tea so requested jams and were provided with a selection of mini jars - including a marmalade! We had to ask for our tea to be served and we also had to keep asking for water. Other than that the food was excellent, no curly sandwiches here, and the view was lovely. Not the best high tea in Sydney but definitely not the worst.
Overall a nice night. The lighting was too bright to celebrate valentines. Staff were sweet and food was lovely. Wine pairing was ok but serving red wine with fish was a bad move. It should have been a glass of red and a class of white re the beef and the fish, great value .... thank you 😘
Great service, great ambience. Would be nice to also have a la carte option on Valentines day.
I booked for 5.30 and arrived by 5.45 letting the staff know we had the opera at 7 and needed to leave by 6.40. The entree came at 6.10 andf the main at 6.35. Not pre theatre timing for a 7pm show. We had to rush and didn't enjoy our meal esp having 5m to eat main course. Also the waitress had never heard of a campari and soda. I ordered it and explained and pointed to it in the bar. It didn't come. I asked another girl. Ice and campari on the side arrived . No soda. By 6.20 it finally arrived. Not rocket science. And not cheap. Not very impressed all round.
