The food was terrific. The wait, not so much. I booked weeks in advance for a table at 7pm. I arrived with all my guests and we still had to wait until 7:25pm to get in. The staff also looked like she wouldn't care if I leave the queue and go somewhere else. I'm hesitant to eat here again based on the service.

Good food and service. Only negative feedback is we paid $40 for a jug of sangria. The jug was small, and a lot of fruit (predominately oranges) and we only managed to have 1 glass each from it (2 glasses). We have been ordering these for years and the jugs are getting smaller and smaller which is disappointing. Apart from that it was good.

Very accommodating waiters, they were always making sure if we were happy with our food or if we need anything else. We only waited for 3 minutes to get a table, on a very busy thursday night. Efficient and excellent service.

Value for money and have a great dining area with a comfort seats , we ordered a chicken breast and fish and chips for our dinner , all of them were tender and well seasoning. Good service and sufficient explaination of the dishes from waiter Martin. This is a great experience from hurricane when we were travelling in Sydney. I recommended to all travellers who would like to have a great meal in the city.

Most of the service was good, has some problems communicating with waitress what we wanted only due to noise and strings accents i believe. Our group of 5 all work in hospitality too so we know what its like to be on the other side so this didn't bother us too much. The bell however was irritating hearing the bell for food over everything else was annoying, again being in hospitality we know what it's like. Even when we work on our shifts when the bell is rung 5 times consecutively its very irritating. I know you have to let the staff know the food is ready to serve but at the level of sound it was you cant hear anything else.

The staff was unattentive. We sat with empty plates for nearly 40 minutes, even though ”our” waitress looked at us many times and we tired to search for her attention. The food was bland, didn’t taste much at all. The noise level was awful and the diningroom felt like a fast food restaurant. Would never go back nor recommend it to someone else. An disappointing experience.

There is an asian guy (if im not wrong, he's name is Michael) who taken care of us when we had dinner that night to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Hurricane Darling Harbour and seems like he do much effort to made our day. It was just me and my wife. But overall we are really happy that day. Food i dont really think i should comment, because everyone knows that Hurricane is the people fav place for sticky ribs so do we :D
That was very pleasure night! Well done!

We booked dinner to celebrate 40th birthday. We were 30 minutes early. Since our table was not ready we waited at the bar. We didn't wait that long. We got seated before 6pm, on a Sunday night and being in Darling Harbour, it did get busy. But our orders for the main came in a reasonable time. We enjoyed the food and the staff were friendly enough.

The only thing I would suggest is to hand out wetnaps if someone ordered ribs.

Had a 6pm booking. Went to waiting area, only a few other groups waiting. Received opentable email saying "thanks for dining". Other parties seated before us. I had to go up to staff at 6.20 asking when we'd be seated, showed her email that made it seem like we already left - only then were we entertained. Walked to table and restaurant was only half full. No excuse for not seating us.

The music was so loud we had to ask for it to be turned down so that we could hear each other speak.
I wonder if the owners have sat in the chairs they provide - very uncomfortable.
Tempura batter on fish was very thick and chips had no flavour - I should have asked for sweet potato fries!
Attempt was made to remove plates when not all customers at the table had finished.
We won't be coming back to Hurricanes.

Quality food at reasonable prices. Can be noisy inside so balcony seating is preferable. Wine list is limited but wines are reasonably priced.

Although the table had the right numbers I did request early on to have a table close to the view of the window.
I understand this was provided as arrived however the seats provided to us were nowhere near close to the window.

Service was quite average if not close to poor. It took several attempts to even get the attention of a floor staff.
Upon getting there attention, they advised they were not the waiter and will get them.

The food came out ok however really disappointed with the service. The servers and staff weren’t even smiling or happy.

We are from NZ and the last two visits we came into your restaurant. Both of these times we were seated down by the toilet - not a great location.
The main food was good and service was great. However, when it came to the dessert I ordered a Creme Brûlée which is the dessert I order everywhere I go so i know what one should be like.
The one I received at your restaurant on Monday night did not have a crunchy top, the spoon went straight through to the not so smooth sot part of the dish. The whole dish was cold due to the top not being heated and set correctly.
I ate a few little spoonfuls and left the rest.
Our waiter saw this and did not ask how it was...

We won't be returning - unfortunately :(

The choice of meals was outstanding
The meat both pork steaks and ribs dishes were really tender
The only thing i found to be wrong was the lack of lighting at night time making it really difficult to read the menu properly.

Overall we enjoyed our time at Hurricanes, I felt that the pork ribs didn't have enough meat on them compared to last time we dined here both the lamb ribs and beef ribs were excellent. Oysters were fresh and the chicken wings had a slight kick to them.

The staff and service was excellent as always, I would recommend Hurricane's to other dinners looking for an excellent meal. In my opinion the only downside was the noise inside the restaurant at times was very loud and it made it hard to hear and I think next time we will try sitting outside and see how that goes.

Bartender extremely rude when we arrived and ordered a pre drink at the bar.
We felt very rushed from the moment we walked in, rushed to order our meals, rushed to pay the bill. Our stay was less than an hour.
Food order got mixed up. And rips were very fatty.
We have been to Hurricanes before and food was always delicious. Very disappointed about this visit. We have no reason to come back.

The Eastern European waitress is terrible. We ordered one cocktail but she gave us two. We wanted all the oysters cooked in seafood platter. She said they can not. Only choice is to change to prawn or barrumundi. Very poor customer service.

It took awhile to get our drinks (even water) and the food came out in odd order. However, the servers were friendly. We were there on a busy night, so I think the wait staff and cooks had a lot going on.
The view was great. Some of the food was pretty tasty. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.

It was terrible experience ever!!!!
when i visited your restrauant front staff said that only cutomer of booking can use the restaurant and entered.
I said that can I wait for opening table? but the staff to refuse my ask. also, she did cut my word every talking. I give up to enter the restaurant and go away. I was little bit curious something and try to check the website. finally I did booking within minutes. as soon as booking I went back to the restaurant met again her. when she look at me she was pretty awful. I told that I did already booking, let you check the website. however, she can't find my name she speaks to herself. while she doing speak to herself, other staff find my name. BUT!!!! she asks how about my spelling. I told exactly to my name. It was so rude!!!
Not finish this story!!!
She told me ; you wait for a while go to side table.
I was very confused so I can't do anything she was too strong to talk me I had no choice.
when I go to side table, I was very surprised that's why there are some peopl who are almost ASIAN!!!
I realize she definetly too rude for ASIAN or not fluent English speaker!!
Also one of waiter was rude too.
I ordered to rib, I needed bowl for born of rib. only my talbe have not born bowl. I request the bowl. the waiter said that just forgot! I said forgot??? he said again yeah just forgot with hands gesture.
I only have a memorise your restaurant. service was awful. food was almost burned.
Please check it your restraunt reviews. at least on google you can read your restaraunt situation.

We go for the pork ribs. Unfortunately they seem to have changed the recipe as they aren't as tasty as they used to be. Also the chips are normally nice and salty but these were very bland.
