    This is probably my favourite restaurant in Sydney and I have visited multiple times for business and with friends. Unfortunately, great ambience and excellent food and drinks are (on weekends in particular) often let down by poor service. On this occasion, my three friends and I arrived at 8:30pm for our 9pm booking to have a pre-dinner drink. We were not seated at our table until 9:50pm and were not served food until after 10:30pm. A number of polite inquiries on our part were met with response of "we'll get to you eventually". I keep coming back but I'm starting to wonder why..... Luckily the food was amazing as usual.

    Popular oyster bar and restaurant in popular Sydney neighborhood. Unfortunately there was no outdoor seating on a glorious sumner evening. We had an early reservation and were almost the first there Nonetheless we were taken to an uninspired table in a remote corner and not moved when we asked to be, though the restaurant was almost empty. Otherwise... all good.. especially the oysters. Other food was also good, service was competent. By the time we left it was bustling. Next time I would rather sit in the oyster bar as the restaurant had a sort of hokey French brasserie style which didn't seem to fit. It was pricey and rather self-conscious but I'd go back or recommend it.

    It's a restaurant with a fun vibe and nicely decorated. Staff are friendly but service is slow & they had run out of a few items on menu by 8.30pm Sat night. Food average. Don't think I'd recommend.

    Arrived at 8.15 for our 8.30 booking. Vegas seated at about 8.45. Waited nearly an hour for our entrees. Then continued to wait for another 45 mins for our main. In the end we walked out. It was my 40th bday and it was completely ruined. Will never go back!

    Our booking was at 8:30pm, we were seated at 9pm. Our food came out at 10:30pm. The staff were very apologetic and sincere about the mishap (apparently there was some conflict in the kitchen), but I ended up returning my Steak Frites as it was too late to eat that much red meat. They sent out a complementary entrée and took my dish off the bill, but just not a great first impression of a highly considered restaurant. Overall, nice experience but I'd probably not return on my own accord.

    The staff were amazing, and I have never had food that good. I mentioned that it was my boyfriend's birthday in the booking form and I think every staff member came out to wish him happy birthday and converse in French with him. The ambiance was awesome. Overall fantastic experience.

    Dined with my partner. The wine list was a lot larger than the food menu and quite expensive starting at $11 per glass. The food was lovely though, the meals are displayed beautifully and are deceptively filling. We were well looked after by the staff.The interior is interesting with eclectic wall hangings and furniture. It's a bit dark for my liking, it's hard to see in the restaurant and the bathrooms especially are so dark you can hardly see what you are doing.

    Usually a great place, service last night was awful.. felt like it was being run by 12 year olds on their first night at work. Left at the bar for 30 mins after our booking time, until I asked if the table was ready and yes it was.. Nearly always had to call someone over when we wanted service, food took forever, empty glasses not cleared (we had a lot) until we asked. Just off to boil, not attentive and not the standard for the prices they charge.

    I would not recommend this restaurant at all we had a shocking experience. They took our order to the wrong table and from then on it went down hill. Food was presented to us but not as we ordered it to be cooked. 3 of our party are still waiting for there steak. The staff do not communicate and 2 hours after arriving we left not eating and went round the corner for dinner. For a restaurant of that caliber it was very disappointing and we will not return or recommend to anyone.

    I was actually quite disappointed with this brunch after attending the Willy Wonka Brunch as my first experience here and having a wonderful time. The variety of food this time around was limited, the service was poor and the most decorated thing there were the faces of the staff. I would seriously question coming again for another "special" brunch experience as this just didn't deliver.

    I have been to Ananas a number of times. The formal area is atmospheric at night and very romantic and relaxing. The informal area around the bar is perfect for a business lunch.The staff are friendly and attentive and I have never felt pressured for time. I had a really long lunch with an important client a month or so and we were as welcome at the end of lunch as when we arrived.

    Our entrées were really good but mains disappointing and frites undercooked. We started off with a cocktail each and they were high spec but $27 each was ludicrous. Ambience and staff excellent. Steak tartare one of the best I've had. $300 for dinner makes this either for special special occasions or a venue to choose if someone else it picking up the tab!

    We have been to Annanas a couple of times as it is a nice restaurant for special occasions.Food was excellent, nice wine selection and the service was good, it did appear that some staff were being trained and were not yet up to the high standard expected, that was not an issue as the staff were very friendly and performed well.My only complaint was the 2% cash card surcharge on top of the $597 bill. Cash is being used less these days and to be hit with the surcharge was objectionable.

    Food was good but service was the worst in Sydney. Our table waited more than 1 hour between starters and mains. Waitor was not attentive and was not have the level of knowledge regarding the menu you would expect for a venue like this.This was my 2nd visit to the restaurant and would not go back. Sydney is full of great places to eat and this is not one of them.

    We had an awesome night. Great food, location and ambience. Service started out fantastic but when the main meals were delayed there was silence - no update on food, no servicing for drinks - it was like they avoided us. Mains finally came and were fantastic but sides came out as we finished so sent them back. Kitchen delays happen but can be made up for by good service.
