    Quite an institution in Sydney. Grilled seafood and grilled meat are both awesome.

    Shoestring fries is so thin&crispy.Add the wagyu sauce to go with it.Also get the wagyu burger as the patty is thick & juicy.Good service as well.They will divide the portion to 2 if you are sharing.

    Wagyu burger is on point. Also, the bar has a really amazing "chandelier" as they call it.

    One of the best steaks in Australia and one of the few places in Sydney where you can eat a meal at the bar. Great for solo travelers looking to try the best Sydney has to offer.

    Spiced apple old fashioned is amazing.. They smoke the apple reduction. Super cool. Best wagyu Reuben of my life, and top 5 burgers (wagyu medium rare all the way)

    Had a steak here for lunch with some friends from work. My steak lacked taste and moisture. The mac and cheese was different but excellent. I even enjoyed the green bean salad.

    Great ambience and great food, Neil Perry's outlet lives up to its reputation as one of the leading restaurants in Sydney. Alaskan Crab Avocado Salad, Lobster Thermidor, and Wagyu Steaks are good!

    Good but not great - service 4, food 3. Drink menu and wine list excellent, expected so much more from Ribeye, avocado crab to salty, paparelle - citrusy. Expected much much more

    Definitely do the steak here. Grass fed dry-aged ribeye or t-bone both good. Sit at the bar if main hall is full. Less stuffy!

    Good food and great building. Unfortunately, they are too focused on turning over tables and therefore making you feel rushed through dinner and/or not able to enjoy the full dining experience.

    My perfect RBG meal. Chipotle margarita to start, kingfish carpaccio, grass fed eye fillet with horseradish cream and BBQ sauce, side of creamed corn with manchego and a glass of Pinot. Perfect!

    Smallest martini we've seen in awhile. Appetizers small too. The wagyu burger is good, but I wouldn't rave about it. Same with the fries. Great atmosphere and decor, though.
