Fusion / Eclectic | Sydney CBD, Sydney / New South Wales

It was a really fun experience. It's amazing that even after you have eaten something for years, if you don't see what you are eating then you really have a hard time guessing what it is. The smell, taste and texture is familiar to you but it is hard to name the ingredient. I really enjoyed the experience. The blindfolds were fun, the ingredients I did guess in my vegan dishes were hummus, beetroot, I don't know if I had carrot or sweet potato but it was one of the two, no matter what it was I ate, it was fresh and delicious and I am sure the presentation would have been a feast for the eyes but alas my blindfold was on :) More

Italian | Sydney CBD, Sydney / New South Wales

We dined at 12 top tier Sydney restaurants during our two week visit. Intermezzo was tied for 1st place. It is located in a marvelous building with interior atrium tables, exterior colonnade tables and a small interior dining room. All were appealing. We chose the small dining room. The food was very good. The service was outstanding. The wine and cocktails were very, very good with many options/selections to choose from. Our server, Eduardo, was the most charming and attentive server I've ever encountered. Which puts him atop a list of over one thousand servers in our 50 years of fine dining. His recommendations were excellent and on budget. We rarely seek server advice. All of us were glad we did in this case. I'll always ask for him going forward. Such a very nice place. Highly recommended. I wish it were in my home city as I'd dine there often. More

Good night, food was good. I like the way the menu was designed, some very thoughtful dishes. A couple of dishes were under seasoned. The 'Tuscan Black Cabbage Slaw' was a really boring dish, baby cavolo leaves with julienne of carrot and squeeze of lemon juice is pretty underwhelming, thought it would be more of a South Carolina style slaw. Crab Raviolo was a good dish, fennel nage was good, lacked a bit of seasoning, could have used some fennel tops to finish, crab lacked a bit of seasoning and citrus too but overall a nice dish. Cured ocean trout was a well put together dish, seasoned well and garnished well, could have been sliced a little thinner so it was a bit more 'fine bouche'. Will definitely be back, ambience was cool and super friendly service staff. Hopefully a few more french drops on the wine menu next time ! A plus ! More

French | Sydney CBD, Sydney / New South Wales

We dined at all top Sydney steakhouses during our two week visit. Prime is tied for 1st place. We've dined at Prime before and the experience is essentially the same. On each visit the server became overwhelmed (on a slow night with about 50-60% tables occupied). The bar and management staff ultimately came to the rescue. We were in no hurry, and service is not an Aussie specialty anywhere except one other Sydney steakhouse, so not a problem. At least the service level was not unexpected. Food was very good. Be sure to avoid the toilets just outside the restaurant (in favor of the ones inside) as they were very far below acceptable. Otherwise, the building is beautiful even with the exterior under renovation. More

Lovely venue was well looked after... the brie and truffles and the Kingfish were to die for, the service was a bit intrusive to the dining experience. Clearing of plates when not completed felt like we were in a rush which we weren't. The waiter whilst lovely made a point of asking many times whether we wanted more dishes when we really didn't need anymore than we ordered. Overall ambience and experience was very good though having said this. More

The weekday seafood buffet, for a long Friday lunch, is particularly good value currently, with 20% off the buffet price. I enjoyed copious amounts of prawns, and there were also marinated mussels and fresh oysters, and pleasant and friendly service. The cheeses, salads, hot foods and desserts were plentiful, but I had eyes mostly for the seafood. The one minor issue was the amount of shell I needed to remove from my mouth after every oyster.

Food as always was excellent, however our waiter asked us do you want sparkling water or still water we said just normal table water. Water came out it was in a clear bottle no label no cap so obviously we thought that was table water. Bill comes and there was about 5 items on our bill which were not ours plus they charged us $7 for still water. We spoke to management and they sorted everything out and didn’t charge for the water. All in all a great rib place probably my favourite in Sydney for pork ribs!!! It was a little worrying that all these extras were on our bill but management fixed the issue so all good, highly recommend. More

I was blown away when the waiter came out with a chocolate cake with happy birthday written on it and a candle. It was the most delicious cake. Would definitely go there again.

The restaurant is impossible to find without assistance, as it can only be reached by walking through another restaurant. The host had no record of our OpenTable reservation but still seated us promptly. Curiously, despite lamentations that our surprise presence created an oversold situation, more than one table remained empty for the duration of our stay. Once seated, service was adequate but less attentive than expected given the price range. We would've purchased at least two more glasses of wine had they noticed our empty glasses earlier. The food was eclectic and artistic and satisfying. A pleasant evening, nonetheless. More

A quick dinner before a movie at the Golden Age Cinema. Food was fabulous - excellent flavours, good choices on the menu, extensive wine list and the bread was great. Excellent service, very flexible (literally and figuratively, as the space is small) - friendly and helpful staff. Can’t wait to make another booking!!! More
