Very good seafood dishes and interesting variety. Friendly, efficient service. Some wines a bit on the expensive side.
Fantastic food and service with a great smile from our lovely waitress who hailed from Paris!
Thank you Julie - kitchen and your section waitress will be delighted to hear this. We can't wait to have you in for another fantastic meal. Warm regards, Jakob Restaurant Manager
We love coming here. The food, wine and especially the staff are consistently excellent. It's been a favourite of ours for special occasions like birthdays. Highly recommend you book as always busy. Cheers
Thank you Eva - I've shared these wonderful comments with the team and they really took it to heart. Thanks for allowing us to help celebrate your many special occasions! Here's to many many more. Warm regards, Jakob Restaurant Manager
Great food, excellent service. I go their often and have never been let down.
Thank you Lee - we're delighted to have you dine with us as much as you do. Can't wait to have you back in for another great meal! Warm regards, Jakob Restaurant Manager
Busy Sunday lunchtime - food and drinks arrived promptly. Well presented food and excellent service.
The food portions received tasted great as waa the service.
The portions did not equate to the price charged or enough to satisfy a not huge appetite.
We went after to another nearby location to top up with dessert. Which was another disappointment with limited choices including advertised apple crumble not available.
Would try again hoping improvements in portions to confirm brand name not only reason for pricing.
Thanks for your feedback, Alan! All fish fillets are portioned to 180g and accompanied with a garnish so I apologise if the garnish was on the smaller side on your plate. I have discussed this with our head chef and he will take a closer look to ensure all dishes are better presented. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention and we look forward seeing you next time. Warm regards, Jakob Restaurant Manager
I really enjoyed my visit to Garfish. The entire experience was exceptional. The Baramundi was excellent. The shared dessert was gorgeous. I’ll definitely be back again
our booked table was given away to a regular while we looked on in dismay . after a 15 mins wait we were shown to another table . from then on service and food were good but the booking experience left a sour taste
Wait staff where fantastic and so was the food.
As always the food was exceptional. Loved the special dessert platter and chilli margarita! We were unhappy at one point with the lack of adequate service (in 20 years of going here, it was the first time the service was not spot on). The manager offered us complimentary dessert and after-dinner drinks to make up for it. A win-win. I highly recommend this restaurant!!! Remember to pre-order your lobster if that’s what you’re after.
Thank you for the feedback Bev. We really appreciate your years of patronage and can't wait to have you back soon again for some more margaritas! :) Regards, Jakob Restaurant Manager
Very good for snapper pie and nice service, reasonable price!
Always good food, service and ambience.
Have been 3 times in the last month. Always outstanding. Specials always interesting. Staples always excellent. Seafood platter (for 2) which includes entres and mains
Thank you Nomis for taking the time to write a review. Will look forward seeing you three times (at least) every month from now ;)
Everything was fine except I was violently ill afterwards. I’m a coeliac and suspect that whilst dishes were denoted GF in the menu they were t.
Thank you Alison for giving us this valuable feedback. It is unfortunate and disappointing to learn that you became unwell afterwards. At Garfish we pride ourselves in taking great care to prevent cross contamination of allergens. Our separate gluten free fryer allows us to cater for gluten intolerances, however, cross contamination may still occur. We have since updated our allergen protocols to make our best effort to prevent this from happening in the future. Hope to speak to you soon.
Love this place . I visit very often.
Amazing staff, food and cocktails are on point
Love your work guys xxxx
I have always loved garfish crows nest and I hope that it returns to byo each night, so that we can bring from our cellar. Don’t mind paying more for the corkage
Great quality, delicious food, wonderful decor and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Very interesting menu, but execution was disappointing.
Thank you for your review. Would love the opportunity to discuss this further. Please feel free to contact the restaurant directly either by phone or email and ask for Jakob, the restaurant manager. Look forward hearing from you.
Crispy Morton bay bug tacos sensational. Cocktails were great. Definitely recommend.
Thank you Jeannette - the bug tacos has proven to be one of our best sellers since we introduce it on the menu last year. We're happy you enjoyed them and can't wait to have you back!
Busy, friendly, good food but service very slow to start. Waited quite a while to order a pre dinner drink. Just could not get anyone to notice us! But once that happened service improved greatly.
The linguini was sour and unpleasant and the fish in the fish pie was so dry. The single brocollini inside the pie was not cut so it was difficult to eat. There was nothing else in the filling. Nice pastry tho. The pasta itself seemed to be house made so that was the only pleasant thing about the dish.
We are sorry your experience fell short on our usual high standards. Did you raise any concern with the waiter? Our waiters are trained to do a meal check with you and if not we do apologise for this. We are always more than happy to replace or exchange any dish that a customer is not entirely satisfied with. Your comments have been passed on to the head chef and he will address these. We would love the opportunity to discuss this further so please feel free to contact us directly if you wish.
Lovely Ambience with a fresh fish menu that doesn’t disappoint. Also happy to help celebrate a special birthday 🥳
Thank you Stephanie! We do love a good celebration. :) Look forward seeing you again soon.
We had a fabulous dinner for mum’s birthday. Everything was outstanding! Really love Garfish!
Lovely lunch at an outside table. Great selection of fish and other dishes. I had the grilled Dory which was excellent. Slight disappointment that the side of baby spinach leaves with beetroot and goats cheese didn’t have dressing. Impeccable service. Great to dine at a restaurant where you can talk without needing to shout. Will definitely be back here.
Thank you for the feedback! Apologies that our lovely citrus and hazelnut dressing was left out of your salad - please don't hesitate to let us know next time. Your comments on the great service has been passed on to the wait staff looking after you. Thank you again - really appreciate it.
A very relaxing evening
We enjoyed our NY Eve dinner very much except for a slight hiccup in ordering - my wife wanted a medium steak but was told “Chef” will only cook medium rare or well done due the special event which was disappointing considering the cost . She ended up ordering something else which was fine but......
My partner and I booked a table for an early dinner on New Year’s Eve. Was a 3 course set menu with complementary bubbles in arrival. Staff were amazing, food was delicious and the live music was outstanding! As always, I will be returning soon!
Great lunch, food very good as always. Thoroughly enjoyed everything.
Very rare to find such good service. Food also amazing. Highly recommend.
A hidden gem in Crows Nest. Odd location but a great menu and totally worth the visit.
Our first waiter did not communicate well and her demeanor seemed like she wanted to be somewhere else.
Boring, average, overpriced food. Salads served with seafood were basic and small. Piece of fish tiny and dry. No sauces offered, just a basic meal could do better at home.
Expensive, small portion, not many main dish options. outdoor seats are basically on the street. Booked 4wks prior but allocated us just outside near the doorway although many other seats were available. The waitress was very rude. Main dishes didn’t come with any vegi so ordered salad on top. Very small portion boring green oily salad it was. Linguine was really disappointing. Couldn’t find any crab meat. Dessert were ok. Wine suggestion was good. I don’t think I will visit there again.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I'm very sorry you didn't experience the quality of service on which we pride ourselves here at Garfish. We always aim to provide the best service around, and clearly we have missed the mark here. If you would like to contact the restaurant we'd love to have a chat!
The six of us had a lovely meal on Sunday lunchtime. Our waitress was excellent .
All fish was beautifully cooked and everyone loved their entrees and mains. Perhaps they didn't love their desserts but everything else was fantastic. I chose the affogato which was perfect...but of course there is little to go wrong with an affogato.
Reasonably priced also.
A great selection of delicious entrees. The mixed oyster plate is a favourite.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Parking close by
Lunch on 6 December was the fourth time I've been to been to Garfish Crows Nest in the last 12 months. On each occasion, the food has been superb. The service has ranged from very good to excellent. Only (very slight) criticism is that when crowded, the ambient noise can make it a little difficult to hear others at the table.
Overall, can't recommend highly enough.
Really enjoyed the space and the food we dined on here, quick friendly service and a diverse and fun menu
Food as always excellent and wine list gives plenty of choices to suit all pockets. The bugs were something special.
no aircon on a 40+ degree day in SYD was had to enjoy our meal.
