    They got their bookings mixed up and ended up putting us on a very small table that didn’t fit 4 people. Really disorganised, hardly apologetic. Not even offering a table downstairs and a drink as compensation. We ended up leaving and they didn’t seem to feel bad about it.

    Nice staff however very under staffed and had to wait a long time to be served. We booked a table on the rooftop but when we got there we had to move the tables around ourselves to make sure we had enough room for everyone. They definitely need to hire more staff on the rooftop so its not just 1 person running around trying to serve 50- 60 people.

    Really good food. Too casual for a date night, collect your own food and food came down in a plastic red basket. Disappointed as there is a wall around the perimeter blocking the view. Would be good as a casual place to go with friends

    Nice Rooftop, unfortunately we were moved on after two hours (house rules with bookings in small fine print) just after we were settling in and had to go to the noisy public bar. So we missed to nice sunset we were expecting.

    Dinner was great, but I was disappointed we couldn’t see the view while sitting at our table (that was why I chose you and travelled the distance instead of going somewhere in circular quay) Our food arrived and just sat on the bar till we went over and asked because the buzzer didn’t go off. Other than that the food was nice, bartenders were busy but friendly and the vibe was quite fun

    We booked the rooftop but we’re not informed it was closed, even though the rain had stopped. The service was extremely slow for the rest of the night taking 15 minutes to make 2 cocktails. The ambience was bad for a Saturday night was no music and high lighting

    Great food and drinks. But our booking was at 6pm and we weren’t offered a table till 6:30 then got kicked out at 7:30 when we booked for 1.5 hours. It is not our fault we were seated late therefore we shouldn’t have been kicked off the table till 1.5 hours after we were seated. Most staff were good.

    Service was appalling. No vibe from the staff and the waiters kept bumping into our table or even me with no apology or recognition. Drinks are pricey for the portion but food was pretty good. Views on the rooftop are amazing!!

I do hope that we'll see you back again one day soon.
