Though very pricey the food and service are excellent. Portions look small but the flavours and presentation make up for it. They have a set course menu with choices per course .

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Sorry for the delayed response but the regular reservation is fine. As Michael has said it takes a couple of hours but definitely worth it. Also try the oysters at the beginning with their special vinaigrette. Very delicious.
