I went to Riley st for my birthday wth a group of girls we loved it. The bar in the centre of the restaurant is really classy, a pre drink sat there feels pretty chic. The interior is so different, the vibe really relaxed and our waitress was very attentive. Would definitively go back.
Hi Becca, thank you for reviving us. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the ride to the fullest. We love celebrating with our valued customers. Hoping to see you again soon!

The degustation was really worth the value. For two people we could try all the amazing starters and had a generous main and dessert as well. Overall ambience was great- good vibes but not too noisy and good for dates.
Hi Celeste! I'm very happy to hear that you left satisfied. Hoping to see you again soon!

About Riley St Garage

Park Yourself at this Slick Garage Set back from the whirl of William Street, Riley Street Garage is a slick restaurant and bar that once housed Lessey's Drive Yourself (a car hire business), and more recently, a private parking lot. Today, this little gem has a very different purpose. Located in a grand, art deco style building, built in 1934, Riley Street is a dark and sexy space with food, drink and seating options to suit all kinds of diverse dining journeys. The industrial interior features original exposed brick walls, preserved steel rafters and an impressive, and expansive timber bar where oysters are shucked to order and cocktails are poured to perfection. The drinks list is comprehensive, with a strong emphasis on tequila, rum and whisky, and plenty of wines that traverse the globe. The food has a melting pot of influences, from Asian to American, sashimi to corn dogs, complete with small, share and main dishes, offering flexibility for every type of diner. Riley St Garage's philosophy of “I’d rather eat in a bar then drink in a restaurant” certainly shines through with decibels building as the night kicks on. Park yourself at the bar, at a table, or in a booth and get ready for a fun-filled night out at this reconstructed garage. The experience is unmatched in Sydney. See for yourself. Best dish: Crispy Pork Knuckle
