The restaurant is very impressive. Walking down the entry way there are viewing panels into the meat storage area, so you can see it hung and dated and the huge wine cellar on the other side.
I found the service to be very good, although perhaps a little bit too attentive - felt like we had someone at our table every few minutes topping up our wine and asking if we wanted anything, and there wasn't just one waiter looking after us there was 3 different ones that came at different times. One mistake they made (not the end of the world), but after we had settled the bill and were just finishing our glasses of wine, another waiter came over and asked us if we were ready for the account...
The food was really nice, although not works of art like I have found at other restaurants that are in that price range (eg Matt Moran's Aria). The quality of the meat was obviously very high and I like that Neil Perry is so conservative and only uses Australian grown meat from sustainable resources. It is quite pricey and you have to buy sides separately, the steak literally comes as just a piece of meat on a plate (like most fine dining places I guess). I can recommend the potatos roasted in wagyu fat, so delicious! I had prawns for an entree, they were nice, but again just served on the plate without any garnish, etc. My friend had porkbelly and squid for an entree and it was just served in a bowl, kinda looked like a caserole slopped in there. Although he said it was delicious. The wine was good and the staff seemed to have a fair knowledge in this area.
I would say overall the quality of the produce was high, but i would've liked to see the meals presented a bit better when paying that price. I know he advertises as 'bar and grill', maybe my expectations were just too high!
