As always the food was great we all enjoyed our starters, pizzas and pastas, however service was a bit slow in taking food and drink orders, it was a busy night and it seemed they may have been short 1-2 staff members. There was also a mixup with our bill, our table had apparently been paid for by another table by mistake. It got sorted out. However, more care needs to be taken here to correctly identify the table being paid for.

Phenomenal service, slightly above average food. Plates were larger than expected for tapas, so we ended up with too much food, and prob a larger than necessary bill. But it was easily a worthwhile experience. Would go back and order lighter.

The food was beautifully presented, fresh and tasted delicious. We were 1 of only 3 tables at the time we dined (6pm) and as this resturant is set back from the main 2 streets of Barangaroo it was very quiet however the staff were lovely and extra attentive (without being painful).

Nolan, the restaurant manager, was absolutely fantastic. He was caring, attentive, and made the experience special. We got the banquet for a large group of ten adults, two children. The food was delicious, and Nolan asked if we wanted repeats for any of the dishes we enjoyed, which was a wonderful offer. So we ordered some more rounds of dumplings, which made the portions very generous, and everyone was full by the end of the night. I got the drink package as well, and Nolan made sure that the glasses were never empty. The service and the quality of food were both excellent. Definitely coming back. Thank you Nolan for showing us a wonderful night! :)

My fiancé and I dined here on a Saturday evening and had a fabulous experience. The service was excellent and the food was just exquisite. It was a really leisurely dining experience, they don’t turnover the tables so you can really take your time to choose from the epic menu and enjoy your evening. Great selection of wines/spirits and really good location in docklands. Will definitely be back!!!

Food was great and staff members were friendly but due to the layout/ partition between the bar and the main dining area of the restaurant, staff members couldn’t see us initially until the chefs in the kitchen rang the bell telling them we require service. Other than that, no issue

There were 7 of us dining for pre theatre meal and cocktails. Everything was absolutely outstanding. The service was impeccable with speedy delivery of cocktails (and multiple rounds), great happy hour deals on meals and drinks and genuinely friendly and professional staff. The vibe and decor was lovely. Cannot wait to go back!
