What has happened to this place? It used to have decent food and good private function rooms. The food put before us tonight was a joke - unsauced meats, undressed salads, greasy chips and biscuity hard lamingtons for dessert. The vegetarian “main” was a small...More

The meal was overpriced and service confused. The venue was OK for a cheap steak house but not for the process they charged. Will not return.

I’ll keep this brief. If you want to pay nearly $15 for a tiny bowl of chips or pay $60 for a sirloin steak with literally nothing with it, this is the place for you. I don’t mind paying that kind of money for an...More

As were staying at QT for the weekend the Gowings bar was an easy option and offered fantastic cocktails and delicious bar snacks. Great atmosphere and really friendly staff, I will definitely be back.

Gowings has potential. However, the staff are a problem. I'd describe them as dismissive, incompetent, rude and inattentive, and follow-up customer service leaves a lot to be desired. We were treated incredibly poorly by Gowings staff, only to have customer service defend really bad behaviour....More

Went to the restaurant for dinner before a show. Ridiculously expensive food for what you get, quality is ok but certainly not up to what they charge for. Wine by the glass is probably 10 - 15 times bottle shop prices. I accept that there...More

My wife and I and another couple went there on Wednesday evening. This is about the 5th time I've been (including lunch and dinners). Was very disappointed. I had the tuna tartare followed by the chicken. Both dishes come with absolutely NOTHING. My wife had...More

Arrived early for the booking- it was quite busy so had to book for 8:15 (so worth the wait). Had a couple of drinks at the bar, the beverage list is very well put together. Staff are knowledgeable, friendly, happy, energetic and attentive. Food was...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
