Le Bouchon

Crows Nest

Sylvia dined on Tue, 31st Jul 2018 (10)

One of the best French food in Sydney. It's divine.

Stretch Italian Restaurant

Chatswood

Sylvia dined on Sat, 2nd Jun 2018 (6)

Have been here a few times now, while the service is excellent, the food seems to be going down-hill. The pasta is good but not spectacular, and no love in the pizza. A bit disappointing this time around.

Anason

Barangaroo

Sylvia dined on Tue, 24th Apr 2018 (10)

This place is a MUST to visit in Sydney if you're after good quality Turkish food. It's a bit pricey but the food is DELICIOUS. Worth the experience.

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

Sylvia dined on Mon, 23rd Apr 2018 (8)

You can have a good hearty meal here. Good size portions and friendly service. Very popular at lunch time.

Stretch Italian Restaurant

Chatswood

Sylvia dined on Sat, 21st Apr 2018 (8)

Pizzas are good, and service is excellent, the staff are very attentive. The pastas, however, seem to be a bit hit and miss. I ordered the Pork and Fennel pasta. The flavours were not pork and fennel (it had mainly peas in it and was quite acidic). It was disappointing. But definitely would come back for the pizzas.

Le Bouchon

The BEST French restaurant on the North Shore. Service and food are excellent.

Via Alta

Willoughby

Sylvia dined on Tue, 6th Mar 2018 (8)

The produce used is very good and fresh however we felt the actual "wow" factor of the meal was a little below the usual standard. Only a 7/10. However the service was excellent.

Sylvia dined on Thu, 5th Oct 2017 (9)

We had the Risotto of the day (which was seafood), Eye Fillet and a side salad. All dishes are highly recommended. They are all delicious and lovingly prepared. Keep space for the Bombolone (nutella filled donuts) for dessert. They are always the highlight. Served warm (freshly made) to the table. They are divine.

The lunch-time specials are fabulous. You can have a very nice 2 or 3 course meal and a glass of wine. It is good value. The food is always prepared and made with great care and skill. You can tell the staff take great pride in the food and in generating a certain atmosphere in the place. The food is always delicious.

The food is always delicious here. Recommend the flank steak and the gnocchi. Both perfectly cooked every time. You can tell the owners of this business take pride in their food and value their customers very well. We keep on coming back.

The food is always top quality here. We had the Pork Scotch Fillet and the Grilled Grain Fed Beef Eye Fillet. Both were delicious. The desserts were equally delicious, they being the Valrhona Chocolate Cremeux and the Gingerbread Tart. The service today wasn't to the usual standard. The wait-staff not as attentive as usual and the food was a little slow coming out. But despite that, the dining experience was very good.

The food is made beautifully with every detail in mind. The lunch specials are particularly impressive with a wide variety. We had the gnocchi and the flank steak; both delicious and I can't wait to come again.

Salt Pepper Nutmeg

Roseville

Sylvia dined on Tue, 23rd Aug 2016 (6)

The atmosphere is cosy and rustic. There is a good range of dishes to select and also there are blackboard specials. The food, however, is good but over-priced. If the price was more reasonable it could be classified as a "neighbourhood gem".

Marciano's Chatswood

Chatswood

Sylvia dined on Tue, 16th Aug 2016 (7)

The food is average but the servings are generous. The staff are friendly and the service was good. We received a lovely small complimentary dessert as we waited for our bill (which was a nice touch).

ARIA

Circular Quay

Sylvia dined on Thu, 4th Aug 2016 (10)

When you come to Aria make sure you have enough appetite to have all 3 courses because everything is delicious. It is indeed pricey but it is worth it. From the service to the food and wine, everything is done to perfection. There is quite a bit of complimentary items as well such as delicious starters, bread and petit fours.Overall an excellent dining experience.

Teta's Authentic Lebanese

Roseville

Delicious food at Via Alta. There is a new menu along with new decor in the restaurant. Mixed emotions about the new look but the new menu has good variety. Our meal was delicious and with generous servings. The highlight though would have to be the Bomboloni. You definitely want to save space for this dessert.

An enjoyable fine dining experience. The restaurant is immaculate, beautiful decor, beautiful food and excellent service.

Victoria Bar & Grill

Anason

High quality food and service. The staff are very keen to please and the food is genius! Amazing flavours. It is fine Turkish cuisine at its best. If you want to impress family and friends, bring them to Anason.

Novaro's Italian Restaurant

Launceston

Sylvia dined on Wed, 3rd Feb 2016 (9)

Beautiful, simple and elegant food. Service is excellent. If you're traveling through Launceston and want a great memorable meal then you should go to Novaro's.

Black Cow Bistro

Excellent food and service. Everything we had was delicious, including the desserts which were lick-the-plate-clean worthy.

This is a great place. We come here regularly because the food is so great. The chef's special is fantastic food for a very good price. The special comes with a glass of wine which was a beautiful wine. They don't skimp on anything here. Always great service and love in the food. They use beautiful, good quality produce which adds to the whole dining experience. Recommend the “Spiedo Bresciano” - spit roast of pork and chicken. It's delicious!

Excellent food. We keep on coming back! We had the Eggplant parmigiana & the Vitello tonnato for entree then the Saffron risotto & Pappardelle for mains. All was absolutely delicious and made with love. We finished our meal with the very yummy Barbajada. The waitstaff are excellent, proficient and friendly. The only minor negative was that there was a bit of a wait between our entrees and mains (approx. 15 - 20 mins). But other than that a very enjoyable, delicious and satisfying lunch.

The food and service is fabulous. We shared the Milanese fried meatballs for entree, it was delicious. Then we had the Baccala pie and the pumpkin tortelli and finished with the Barbajada for dessert. If you love chocolate then the Barbajada is a must have! You can pretty much order anything from the menu and you know it will be delicious.

Burlington Bar & Dining

Crows Nest

Sylvia dined on Sat, 31st Aug 2013 (9)

I love Burlington and I am a loyal patron but I was disappointed to see recently that bread is no longer offered as part of the dining experience. A restaurant of this standard should consider reinstating bread as part of their service.

Burlington Bar & Dining

Crows Nest

Sylvia dined on Sat, 12th Jan 2013 (10)

Food is excellent. Burlington uses good quality ingredients and wonderful flavour combinations. For the current menu, highly recommend the braised lamb shoulder and the rissotto

Burlington Bar & Dining

Crows Nest

Sylvia dined on Sat, 3rd Sep 2011 (7)

Food is very good but service was poor because: - we were not offered to hear the specials - we ordered a side of fries although the meal came with fries. We were not advised of this so we had too much fries - when it came time to get the bill we couldn't get anyone's attention
