A very unwelcome/rude "welcome" from the staff member who greeted us. Such a shame. Why is it that covid seems to have eradicated a pleasant greeting when dining out? It is not impossible to speak respectfully. The ambience was shot to pieces after that.

Disappointing

Poor service - order mistakes, staff seem in a hurry to get your order, but then food slow to arrive

Went for the VDay meal with matched wines, they brought the food out so fast we only got our first wine, they didn’t offer the second wine and put dinner in front of us with the third wine. I complained cause I wanted to finish the wine that came with the first meal before we started the third meal but there was no choice, it was all so rushed. Told them to disregard the matched wines as it was pointless. Then they still tried to charge us for the wines. Food was delicious and amazing but the service ruined it for us. Left feeling disappointed and rushed.

The service and view were fantastic! The food was good, however, the roast potatoes were not fresh (they were chewy like they had sat out for a couple of hours), and I expected absolutely delicious fresh food.

I understand having a set menu (where you choose 2/3 courses for ease), however this should not be to the detriment of the freshness or quality of food.

Bit of a mixed review here. Was really keen to try 3 Blue Ducks, so the hype may not have help. Overall though, was 'ok.
The food is tasty - not outstanding, but consistently decent. The problem we had was there was just far too much of it. We had the three course option, but we're big eaters and still left a fair bit of food on the plate. We overheard diners on the table next to ours warning their friends about the size of the serves, so clearly not just us.
The bigger let-down was the service. Once seated, it took a fair while to be served. We ordered our three courses...and after a bit of a wait our entrees arrived. We pointed out at that point that the bread starter hadn't arrived yet (no apology, just a rushed waiter scrambling off to find the bread).
With entrees (and bread) out of the way, one of our sides arrived...but then shortly after was taken away :-/ A while later, our mains and one side (not the one that had been brought and removed) arrived...then our second side was brought back.
The rest of the meal went off without a hitch, until the bill was brought and paid - the waiter had a mild panic that he had charged us for the 2 course option instead of the 3 course. We gently pointed out that the bill was correct, and he was misreading it.
The other minor concern was the heat. We were seated inside, away from the open windows, on what was a fair warm evening. If the 3 Blue Ducks team are relying on the breeze to cool the restaurant, it doesn't work.
Like I said, all-in-all a mixed review.

Unfortunately it was a really disappointing experience. I’ve been here previously and the food & service was exceptional, this latest visit was the opposite. The service was really poor other than the hostess who seated us, she was friendly and engaging. The food was well below average other than the octopus entree. Our bread was stale, quail entree overcook and both mains lacked any flavour or seasoning. The chocolate marquise was ok but the parfait was not. It was rock solid. I had really high hopes from previous experiences but it was such a disappointment, particularly at $90 per person.
