The restaurant was a gamble. We had not been recommended by any locals but thought we'd give it a go. The waiter was so warm, welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and wine. He also was perfect at giving us attention and leaving us alone.
Now to the food. What a delight! It was creative, fresh, the flavours were perfectly balanced and very sophisticated. The interpretations of such dishes as cauliflower salad and beef tartare (which can often be tricky) were exquisite. We the had the Cowra lamb which once again had the most fabulous flavours and the fresh gnocchi which was light, colorful and heavenly.
We'll be back. Thank you.

We enjoyed a Saturday evening three course menu, and everything was very well prepared and presented, with attentive service and knowledgeable staff.

Everything about this restaurant is what I love about dining out. It is warm and inviting with a calm ambience - no stuffiness nor overbearing wait staff. December is the month of celebrating for me and one of my besties (Christmas babies) so we went for dinner together on the Friday night being the 1st. He had the full vegetarian meal without even realising it - the smoked pumpkin for entree and the gnocchi for main which he raved about. I enjoyed the bonito for entree and the lamb for main. Both were out of this world. Possibly the best meal I’ve had all year. We polished off a few bottles of vino (we’re not really big drinkers ) and had a great start to the silly season. The following evening we invited friends who brought along their adorable 3 year old who was catered for so graciously. I then tried the smoked pumpkin for entree which was incredible. The smokiness from the hickory chips was divine. The blue trevalla for main was perfect and the wattle seed panna cotta for dessert was sublime. Highly recommended & wonderful service. The diet starts next year

This is a real gem if you want to have nice food in the countryside. The seafood we had was very delicious and tasty. The service was good to.

Over the years have eaten at Nineteen23 many times and last Sat night my husband an I enjoyed another amazing degustation meal. It's Mon today and I am still thinking about the magical flavours of each dish although the stand out dish was definately the beef cheek pie which melted in ones mouth and was to die for. Degustation is one option but a la carte is also available. Great service and selection of wines.This restaurant never disappoints and for me and my husband remains our favourite restaurant in the Blue Mountains.
