Upon arrival we were immediately asked if we were ready to order & had not yet had the opportunity to look at the menu.
Five minutes later, we were approached again re if we were ready to order...felt staff were bit pushy and inexperienced.
Ordered pork ribs with potato and calamari for entree. Serving size for entree was bit small, ribs were cold and flavour is no where near the level of Hurricanes Darling Harbor. Would not come back to Circular Quay venue.

A terrible experience. On arrival told that we had the table for only 90 minutes. Well it took 40 minutes before they offered us drinks - and that was after I went to ask the front desk for a waiter. Then took another 40 minutes before we got our food. Only started to eat after our 90 minutes was up!!!!

Had ribs - asked for a bowel for bones - never got it despite other tables getting it. Asked for hand wipes, never got it. Asked for another round of drinks never got it.

Was worst eating out experience ever. Will not be going back there. Everyone was very rude.

Very quiet for a weeknight at Hurricane’s when we visited. This made for a very relaxing and quiet ambience for conversations to be easily heard.

The service we received was fast, efficient, friendly and professional.

The food was excellent as usual. The ribs were covered in that beautiful basting and very tender.

There was more than enough to take home as well! 😊

Thanks Hurricane’s! We’ll be back for sure.

My 11 year old son and I find it difficult to eat out with his severe allergies. Many venues turn us away because it is too tricky to provide a safe meal for him.
It was so refreshing to have the wait staff know the menu well enough to be able to direct us through our selections and not have to check with the kitchen on every item.
My son and I were thrilled. We have dined at other Hurricanes restaurants previously so knew the quality of the food. However the fact that it was stress free and we really were cared for meant we were truly able to focus on enjoying our meals and able to do what we haven’t been able to do before and share food from each other’s plates.
Thank you for an amazing experience.

Hurricane’s is an outstanding venue serving up some of the finest cuts of meat in Sydney. With Circular Quay being a tourist hotspot, the location is perfect for such a destination. Service was quick, but lacking in areas regarding recommendations of wine and how one’s steak should be cooked - a factor that is important for customers to have a good experience with the restaurant.

The ambience is great, but two factors can really change an opinion on the business:

First, the lighting wasn’t the best. I sat opposite two friends and from start to finish I was blinded by incredibly bright lights that shone in my face.

Second, this is an adult dining experience. Newborns and young children should not be brought to this establishment, as it can and will have an effect on patrons’ perceptions of the business. Prior to being seated, a mother was with her friends, and for the majority of my time waiting for the waitstaff to seat my party, there was constant screaming from their child that ruined what would have been a nice experience for others around them.

All in all, Hurricane’s is a great experience for parties of two or more. The prices are on par with most upmarket B&Gs, but in most cases you get what you pay for.

wasn't too busy, and we got a window seat which is always nice. One set of pork ribs was a bit overcooked and dry, but the other set was very nice. So they could improve the consistency a little. But overall decent meal, and we'll be back again.

Great location, right across from the station and the water. Easy to get to and it has a nice atmosphere.
