If you're getting the buffalo wings, get the Louisiana ones. You get 8 instead of 4 for the BBQ ones. And definitely go for their ribs. It's what they're known for!

I’ve had some fond memories of hurricanes over they years but was bitterly disappointed by how dry and tough my full rack of pork ribs was.

We came here for dinner on a weeknight. Covid safe, tables were clean, diners spaced out and staff were friendly and attentive.

We had ribs combo. Servings were generous and tasty. Food was served quickly. Nice table with a good view.

The service wasn’t bad it was just the fact that they forgot to put our order through for our mains which was a bit annoying. No compensation for the inconvenience was offered. We paid for our drinks and entrees and had to go as we waited a considerable time before a waitress wanted to take our order, again.

Had a fantastic lunch here today. They had a very reasonably priced lunch menu for $25
and you get 20% off all alcohol, so I had a few sneaky beers before going back to work.
The young lady that served us was also wonderful, very helpful and attentive.

I've eaten at hurricane numerous times and ordered the pork ribs. This time round the meat was tough and felt dry. Perhaps it was left out for too long. I hope you this doesn't happen again.

Beef ribs were very ordinary. Not at all worth the $55 for a full rack.

Table service was ok. However, got threatened with being kicked out for briefly conversing with another table. Strange given the individual threatening was standing well less than 1.5m from our table and lingered much longer than necessary. I understand restrictions are in place but to treat customers with disdain when staff are barely adhering to their your own covidsafe plan is hard to accept. If Hurricanes was genuinely concerned for staff safety then face coverings and other PPE would have been in use.

Would recommend darling harbour if desperate for hurricanes. Too many good ribs joints in Sydney to be treating paying customers like that.

You have to wonder though in this location will they survive. It’s practically 10 metres from the best view in Australia but totally impeded by the train line.

We arrived 15 minutes prior to our booking time and were welcomed very warmly by staff at the front counter. When we informed the staff that we now have 6 people attending instead of 8, we were offered better seats which provided a view over the harbour. The staff also allowed us to stay longer than the end of our booking time (which was originally supposed to end at 9:00pm) and this was very accommodating. Staff even assisted in storing the birthday cake in the fridge, lighting a sparkler on it and singing Happy Birthday to the 2 birthday girls present. This was fantastic.

The food was also delivered very quickly (in about 10 minutes) and it tasted delicious! There is only one minor improvement which I would suggest. Closer to the end of the night, one of the staff came to me and asked if I was ready to pay for the bill before we had even eaten the birthday cake. For the future, it would be more helpful if you could either wait for me to ask for the bill or wait until we have finished eating dessert (or cake) before presenting me with the bill. Thank you very much for letting us split the bill! I have now been to Hurricane Grill Circular Quay twice and I will definitely consider returning for future special occasions! Many thanks for hosting us and providing a great night!

For the prices they charge the food was mediocre. I ordered sautéed mushrooms and they brought me a paste. The ambiance is non existing, on an office building and very plain, no table cloths or cloth napkins.

Very good meal again and great service. We were there 7.30pm to approximately 9.10pm 25/01/2020 The only negative that I picked up was the ringing of the bell obviously from the kitchen, I know that they have to ring the bell to let the wait staff know that meals are ready to be taken out but it was a persistent angry ring with mostly 4 very loads rings every time. As I say I know it has to be done but it was quiet a violent ding of the bell and mostly 4 times every time.

Very pricey for the service you receive. I’ve never heard of a surcharge for dining on a Sunday which we had on our bill, wasn’t even a public holiday. Unfortunately our meat platters just tasted like everything had bbq sauce overpowering it.

I was advised by the front of house staff person that there would be a 1 hour 45 minute wait despite booking a table online. Fortunately another staff member found me a table immediately.
My waitress was excellent and attentive but the food was below average, my steak wasn’t tender and my chips tasted like the oil needed refreshing. Overall disappointing I probably won’t bother going back.
