This venue has the most stunning balcony with a great view of the harbour bridge! I loved the interior lighting, the way the room was set out, it made a stunning wedding venue. The food could have been better especially for dietary requirements people but...the staff and service was excellent.More

terrible services, staffs are very rude specially the asian girl with long hair who served table number 7. Food is Ok but size is stingy just a very small bowl of vegetables n fresh rockets for 12 people. pre ordered vegeterian dish only a few...tomato, some rockets and 1 or 2 potatoes. Guests were not happy with the services. Ordered soft drinks waiting for 45 minutes, cold water not filled for guests. Very disappointed and never come back or refer this restaurant to anybody else.More

We had our office party here . Amazing location but was very disappointed with the food. The paella was the worst i have ever eaten. Had no taste.

It wasn't the best meal I have ever had but it wasn't inedible either and the great service, superb location and efficient staff made for a wonderful evening on such an important day!

Great venue for a wedding adjacent to the harbour bridge. Very good food and attentive wait staff. Drinks kept topped up

Nice view and tasty food ! Unlike other places, they managed to keep all their foods nice and hot for 100pax on a freezing day. Excellent place for a large reception and a nice ceremony location if you have less than 30pax. Recommended to reconsider...another ceremony location if you have a larger group since it can be a bit tight on the restricted area. The wharf belongs to the council and it can not be rented for weddings. Hickson Park Reserve would be a great ceremony location - excellent views and close proximity to View By Sydney.More

Please be warned that my review could be seen as biased (but not as far as I am concerned), as my daughter's wedding reception was held at View by Sydney recently. Drinks and canapes started to be served on the outside verandah at 5.30pm providing...guests with ample opportunity to mix and to catch up in full view of the Bridge and Luna Park whilst there was still plenty of light. The serving staff were polite and hard working. The only point is that, quite often, the more favoured canapes (e.g. tempura prawns) were all gone before they reached certain pockets of people on the verandah. It would be good if they could start their serving at differnt points of the verandah so that every guest has a chance to taste the chef's offerings. Guests numbered about 150, and the tables were set in such a way that there was much space between them, with plenty of room for the band, the MC and the speakers. Catering for a function, food was much better than I expected. For instance, seared scallops was one of the entrees and it was cooked just slightly underdone; no easy task as more often than not they are turned to lumps of rubber in some of the other functions that I attended. Again the waiting staff were attentive and responded to guests' requests promptly. By the time the sun was completely set, the Bridge and Lunca Park were all lit up providing a magical backdrop to the venue. Guests, overseas, interstate and local, loved the outlook. Even our Melbourne friends agreed that there is something about Sydney that Melbourne just could not match !More

Usual last minute decision to find a special venue to celebrate the New Year - it needed to on the water and with a great view of the fireworks, and not over the top on cost. We found it. We were greeted on arrival with...a glass of champagne which we enjoyed on the pier over the water. The head of Staff was friendly and ushered us to our intimate table. Food was well paced to last the 4 hours to midnight with a few breaks for the 9pm fireworks and dancing to the contemporary DJ. We loved our Spanish waiter who was warm and communicative throughout the evening. Our wine and water glasses were unobtrusively topped up during the evening.More

Held our wedding reception at View by Sydney. They were amazing. We threw all sorts of complications at them. Amanda and Sana took it all in their stride and delivered perfectly, all with a smile. A small negative, the drinks service wasn't as snappy as...some liked, but we were a big group. Highly recommended.More
