The waitress/waiter asked for tips rather than letting customer entering tips on keypad. Which is a bit different to what restaurants usually does.

Having said that, the other service and the food quality is exceptionally good.

Welcome was good at front door and escorted to restaurant. We were seated issued menus with no explanation as to content.

Drink order taken. I ordered a lemon lime & bitters. Batman did not know how to make. Put full nip of bitters in and used sod’s water as top up. Was too strong and taste was not as should be. I drank a bit and topped up with tap water to reduce strength.

Entrees were nice, sirloin had a little too much fat/gristle for my taste.

Never saw a waiter again until we had finished desert. No follow up checks on food or drinks. Tried to get attention of wait staff to order another drink but gave up.

Paid our bill and left.. not a night I had thought I would experience from a high value hotel and restaurant

Booked two weeks beforehand for a special wedding Anniversary and travelled two hours to get there. Our allocated table was dreadful. Located behind a sink and bench with views completely obstructed by empty wine bottles and dirty plates and used napkins placed on this dirty sink area we faced. Absolutely shocking for this standard of restaurant. So disappointing. Service was dreadful. Two waitresses asked us on separate occasions over a 15 minute period if we'd like a glass of water on arrival. Yes please. We waited and waited. Neither returned with water. Basic service appallingly lacking. Meal was very average. I sent back my inedible entree and explained the problem and was not offered any alternative. Not even an acknowledgement. Main meal average to ok with French fries resembling a fast food chain. The most disappointing experience ever.

Service was very slow. Meals took ages to arrive. Oysters were incredibly small and undesirable in taste. The main pork dish was served without sauce and extremely dry, uneatable. Chicken main was dry. Overpriced and a terrible experience. Won’t be going here again.

The Dining Room experience for us was disappointing. We had eaten at the Dining Room a number of times before and throughly enjoyed the food, but not this time. Menu was limited with just 5 items for entree, 5 for main and 4/5 for dessert. It cost $70 pp for 2 courses and $80pp for 3 courses. Our original table was in the middle of the room very close to a big table of 6 men - so close that my chair was touching the man behind me. No social distancing in that spot. When the table next door became vacant I asked to move - much better.
I had the oysters ( not chilled) and then the vegetarian option of the eggplant with courgette puff and whipped ricotta - not a lot of flavour in this dish. My husband had the beef tartare (tasty and quite big ) and the sirloin which came with an oily potato gratin, a small dollop of burnt pear purée and a couple of spots of oyster cream. We ordered a side of fries which was the tastiest part of the meal. We would not book the Dining Room again if the menu was similar. Not good value for money, with ordinary flavours and presentation.

The location is amazing
The food leaves a lot to be desired. They offer a set menu for $70 2 courses or 3 courses for $80
Firstly it was our wedding anniversary and I notified them when we booked, the Maître de acknowledged this and congratulated us, then proceeded to seat us sharing a bench within hearing distance of another couple when there was plenty of tables free which were for 2 and a lot more private. I had to ask for another table, she had to check and we were given another table. Then we ordered drinks which never arrived, they brought bread and she started setting up for entree with no drinks yet so I had to say I don’t want entree until you bring the drinks
The bread was yummy, the oysters were nice ( their elderberry etc) was not great combo - so natural oysters you can’t get too wrong. Then the main came which was “grilled swordfish” there was nothing grilled about this, it was basically nori/ seaweed filled with broiled fish and the accompaniments did nothing for the meal - blurgh I couldn’t even finish it. Luckily we ordered some paprika fries. Then the dessert - we had someone bring us two slices of thin crispy pastry sitting on top of some crumb with cream in centre. It also came with a happy anniversary sign. I was confused whether this was a token gesture from the restaurant or the dessert we had ordered! Honestly the view is amazing but it is equally amazing from lots of other eateries along this strip - the fact that they want you to pay for a set menu means you are paying $200 odd dollars for a view and a nice table if you’re lucky enough to get one. Very disappointing for what was supposed to be a special occasion

The Dining Room is one of my favourite Harbourside restaurants in Sydney. It offers value for money, and the service is second to none. The only downside, which is due to Covid-19, was the much limited menu, which was not up to the standard we normally experience. The menu would have to improve substantially for me to return in the near future. However, I understand the difficult times the hospitality industry is experiencing at this time. Lets hope life returns to what we experienced pre-covid real soon. But of course, the wait staff and their friendly and personable service was excellent, and appreciated.

I had booked the reservation as soon as the tables became available during the Valentine's day sessions. And requested the view closest to the window and was sat almost to the back of the restraunt. Had to request seating somewhere else before they allocated us slightly closer to the window. The team that had brought the food out were extremely helpful and carrying.
