Scallops were room temperature, not great. Sorry to say that the food is quite average and very overpriced.

Difficult to find an establishment that serves equally good cocktails and food at the same time - The Owl House accomplishes this feat. The Owl House has the atmosphere of a really good hipster drinking nook feel, combined with inventive & flavoursome culinary dishes, lots of in house smoked meats, recommend the terrine in particular.

The waitress didn't know what a mock tail was. Slow service. Very small space

Awesome food!! Everything had such amazing natural flavour. Wasn't need for sauce as the chef had managed to bring out all the flavour from the ingredients he used. Loved the 3 ways cooked pork and the dory. Make sure you save space for dessert as it's just as good. Definitely coming back! :)

Our second time here, and we very much enjoyed it again. The food was excellent: interesting, well cooked and well presented. The menu is a bit pricey for this place to be a regular neighborhood go-to place, but it's ok for a date night or a special occasion. During Restaurant Week it was an absolute steal!

About The Owl House

Have a hoot of a time Behind an unassuming red terrace door, on the Darlinghurst end of Crown Street, lies a neighbourhood watering hole that makes drinking at the ‘wrong’ end of Crown Street a much more pleasant affair. Downstairs, happy patrons crowd around the long narrow bar sipping cocktails under the oversized, naked light bulbs. Mingling with others, or even with owners Amir Halpert and Paul Loulli is not uncommon at this compact eatery so be prepared for bar banter and story trading if you enter this little local. Bar snacks such as smoked bone marrow and oxtail croquettes, and marinated Sicilian olives go down a treat. Or you can choose to dine upstairs on the second level, where things are a little more diner-friendly, and not such a tight squeeze. The best seats in the house are unquestionably up on the intimate balcony, which seats a party of four. But no matter where you sit at The Owl House, you’re sure to have one hoot of a time. Hoot, hoot! Best dish: smoked bone marrow and oxtail croquette
