Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came for the views (which are great!) and loved the food. We had a night out in Hobart while on the Celebrity Edge. Decided to treat ourselves to dinner here and weren't disappointed. The steak Diane was excellent.

Locally sourced fresh ingredients, delicious flavour combinations, great service, and a fantastic view. We watched the sun go down as clouds gently rolled in, and a lightning storm put on a show for us before most of the clouds cleared again. Absolutely beautiful ever-changing view....The food was excellent both in quality, flavour, and sizes of portions. Definitely not a cheap dinner, but a great experience and very tasty!More

Our booking was for 7pm but I would recommend going around 7.30-8pm due to the sun on one side of the building being too bright and hot. The food was amazing, there wasn’t really anything we didn’t like. I had quail for the first time...and my partner had the oysters. Our mains were fish which my partner had and I had Steak Diane which was cooked at the table and was so tender and lovely. My partner had the pistachio cake and I had the cheese plate for dessert. The cheeses with the fruit was a great way to finish off. Our waitress Lotus was lovely and all the staff were friendly. Our only complaint was we ordered a drink and we reminded the staff 30 minutes later - we got the glass of wine for free but the delay was annoying. We also waited 50 minutes for our dessert and again had to speak with staff who said there was a glitch with their ticketing (and there might have been). Either way we would go back for the views, experience and food - they just need to nail the service and it would be perfect as their staff are really friendly.More

We absolutely loved dining at the Revolving Restaurant. The food was excellent, the waiters were well dressed and friendly and the ambience great. Perfect for our date night - we couldn't have asked for a nicer dining experience. The view is fantastic and unlike many...modern restaurants was suitably quiet - probably due to there being carpet on the floor. We thought it was great value - just give yourself at least 2 hours to enjoy a couple of rotations!More

Wonderful. Came here for a night celebrating several big occasions. We were looking for something extraordinary and we found it. Delicious lobster souffle to blue eye trevalla and duck. All was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert. All the staff were welcoming,...attentive and friendly but a little shout out to Christine who was lovely and her attention elevated our experience. Only downside was the windows were really dirty so taking photos was hard. Will be backMore

Had been several times before and could not fault. We feel now that unfortunately this is no longer a fine dining experience but a set menu (but you can substitute anything from the alacarte menu) almost fancy pub meal. The restaurant was very noisy, dress...code seemed optional and the staff did not seem attentive and professional. While the view is beautiful we left feeling very let down. Next time we visit Hobart The Point is not on the menu.More

I have been going to The Point once or twice a year for nearly 40 years. Over the last two years it has been in decline. It has always been a safe bet, expensive, but appropriately so for the quality of the food and the...excellent service. All dishes are over-elaborate, clever rather than pleasing, the combination of flavours not always well matched. It needs simplification. Service to now lacks energy and verve, just a little lazy and sloppy. Such a shame. I urge them to review everything.More

If you have ever been to a revolving restaurant before I would suggest giving this a skip, as the price you are paying is for it only and not the food. The bread provided at the start of the meal was the best . We...ordered the 2 flame main course (beef and prawns) and they completely lacked any flavour or quality produce (which you get accustomed too when in tasmania as the local produce is so fresh and to die for) . The places was also very smokey because of all the table side cooking and the fact that the restaurant seems to lack air circulation (it is a decades old building).More

We went here for my partners birthday. The venue is stunning, full views of the city, water and mountains and the view is changing as you sit and enjoy dinner. My partner had never been to a revolving restaurant before and was impressed. The food...was amazing, and service was in line with our expatiations for a fine dining venue. Totally recommend the Point revolving restaurant. The Point has a dress code so check that before heading in.More

Great views as the seating area revolves around the building. Put on your tidy threads and shoes and spend time in a comfortable environment, great service, easy to understand menu, well some words anyway, include the wine list in that, relax no rush, this definitely...isn’t a drive through so if you’re starving have a snack before you go, the food here is worth waiting for. Lots of flavour cooked to perfection presented with flair. Dessert if desired and a range of beverages. Get in the lift and go to Level 17. Toilets included, price competitive with other fine dining restaurants. You got to go at least once.More

I would think so. Ring the restaurant directly. The regular lunch was fantastic and the Christmas Dinner would be amazing. I would also think they would book out very quickly!
