Food was absolutely fabulous but the service of some of the waiters can be a bit warmer and attentive, after all, it’s a 2 hatted restaurant and certain standard should be maintained.

As a party of 4, we chose the tasting menu. The waitress to begin with was not interested in making us feel welcome and a few of our requests such as a photo (it was my wife's birthday), water or asking about the menu seemed way too much trouble and was met with a sour face and short answers. The first four courses all come out at once, individually they may have tasted great but we were incredibly rushed due to eat them due to everything landing on our table at one time with no real description of what it was or how to pair it with the others dishes. Dishes were handled poorly when presented on the table so they looked a mess knowing the chef's had taken time to create and present carefully. It damaged the entire experience. My wife and I had wanted to eat here for so long were left incredibly let down by the service and experience. Perhaps if the team were more welcoming and took care of the food as well as the timing of it coming to the table it would be a great experience but it is not one we would recommend given our very poor experience and feeling of being unwanted guests.

Ester was one of the best restaurants I've been to in Sydney. All of the dishes were incredible and I hope to visit again soon.

I think this restaurant is no longer worthy of the hype and feels tired and old. The food we had including a deep sea scarlet prawn and a snapper dish were overly fishy and not very tasty - disappointing!

About Ester

Ester-mania... Much-loved by Chippendale's multimedia creatives, Ester restaurant is seriously smokin’ hot...in more ways than one. Not only does this quirky eatery reign in the diners but it dishes out some seriously delicious share plates (all smokin’ hot), whipped up in a massive red hot wood fire oven that sits at the heart of the kitchen. With the oven the focus of much of the cooking, the chefs are trying to get everything touched by it, somehow. Anything from fish, chicken, lamb, duck, steak and even blue swimmer crab will come from the flaming hot oven. Try the half-head of cauliflower roasted until charred and served on a creamy almond emulsion with fresh mint (it’s absolute perfection!) and save room for a spoonful of caramel semifreddo for dessert (you won’t regret it). The space is an absolute charmer, wrought from rendered concrete, painted steel and glass. It’s the perfect place for a drop-in, sit at the bar style meal or a book-ahead, wine and dine with friends type of occasion. Ester has gone back to basics cooking principles and it’s paying off, this contemporary diner will be smokin’ hot for a long time to come. Best dish:half-head of cauliflower roasted until charred and served on a creamy almond emulsion with fresh mint
