The food, service and ambiance was wonderful to celebrate the occasion. It is high priced however suitable with the quality of food, service and overall atmosphere. The dessert was a bit disappointing with the magic chocolate however still enjoyable. Cocktails and wine were amazing. We were so full and enjoyed all of it. Would recommend to a friend and come back!

Cannot fault! Rockpool is not one of those stuffy, super expensive places that end of not being nice. Rockpool is so authentic and amazing! The food you get is so good for price; I've been about 10 times and don't plan on stopping! The King prawn seared tortellini is a MUST.

The Food was very good, albeit we were a little disappointed with the Scallops, as the roe was still attached, the sizes were inconsistent and the burnt butter was quite bitter. The Flathead with greens was superb though as was the Pie with Mushy peas and the Pumpkin side was amazing. The ambience of the restaurant and the building is fantastic. Our waiter (sorry I cannot recall his name but he was from Napoli in Italy) was excellent and provided exceptional service.

Overall the experience was great. It was my wife's birthday so it was a lovely dinner with some good service. In the special requests when booking I noted it was her birthday to see if such a place would do anything over and above to make it special, but they didn't even let me know they couldn't or wouldn't. So was a little disappointed to see that was ignored for such a prestigious place.
Good afternoon Sam I would like to thank you first and foremost for choosing to celebrate your wife's birthday here at Rockpool Bar and Grill. I was very saddened and disappointed to hear that we didn't deliver in organising a little celebratory cupcake at the end of your meal, it was noted down to provide this to make your evening special, but it was unfortunately not carried out. I truly hope that it didn't impact on your evening to negatively and that we will see you here again at Rockpool Bar and Grill. Kind regards Ruaridh Macdonald General Manager

About Rockpool Bar & Grill

Parry with Perry Neil Perry has been king of the Sydney food scene for decades – and Rockpool Bar & Grill showcases all the reasons why. This chic eatery has all right elements to create the perfect dining experience. First of all, there is the food. Perry has been outspoken about his passion for fresh, quality produce and the menu at Rockpool Bar & Grill is a testament to this. Every item – from the Reuben sandwich on the bar menu to the Tasmanian Spiny Lobster Thermidor on the main menu – is made from the best ingredients the chefs could get their hands on, and you can tell. But coming here is not just about the food. The service is oh-so-smooth and the venue is spectacular, located in a glorious art deco building, so coming here makes you feel truly special. Also, we love the list of house rules at the beginning of the bar menu, which reminds diners to behave themselves (eg “Leave your attitude with your hat at the door”). It is a bit of a throwback to an earlier, better-mannered era, and we are certainly not complaining. Best Dish: David Blackmore’s Full Blood Wagyu Hamburger with Bacon, Gruyere Cheese and Zuni Pickle
