we had been booked by friends for "China Doll" but having eaten there and not being overly impressed we decided on Otto. Yes all as expected a great wine list, nice spot and I think i liked it better than China Doll as it is a little further down the wharf which makes for a more relaxed experience. The food... More

I'd never been here before and wasn't sure what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised! The food, the service, the attention to detail and even the kindness by recognising our visit purpose by bringing out an additional dessert - we were completely wowed and we will definitely be back. The lemon tart was to die for.

Visited with friends. We arrived early with booking and was promptly seated and offered mats on the floor to place our handbags.(I presume for the ladies with fancy expensive handbags although I was more concerned about getting them stolen on the floor as it happened to me once before, rather than soiling them) We ordered entrees of olives and bread...

Italian at its best. Went here with my family and my brother assured me it was a must. I was surprised as I'm not a fan of wholesome style Italian food (unless I'm actually in Italy). Lighter food than expected and service was excellent.

My partner and I were walking along the pier trying to decide which restaurant to choose. While standing in front to Otto looking at the menu we asked if substitutions were allowed for dairy free (as I'm vegan). He then offered their vegan menu! We decided we had to eat here. I would agree with previous reviews that the wine... More

Chose Otto out of several restaurants in the wharf due to reputation. As we arrived on a beautiful Sunday afternoon despite it being fairly quite ( id say 8 occupied tables) we stood at the entry whilst I'd say about 8 members of staff saw us and completely ignored us. This is clearly a 'my job role is very specific'... More

Booked this restaurant for my fiancés birthday a little over a week in advance. Got a couple of confirmation messages, calls and emails from the venue which I answered and confirmed during work hours. When we arrived at the venue we were told to wait outside while they check our reservation? Then we were told that they could not find... More

We came here for a special occasion and were warmly greeted. Having been seated our waiter seemed disinterested and superior. Supercilious is how I would describe him; it was as if doing his job was beneath him. The food, when it came was wonderful - fresh, beautifully presented and exciting to taste. The experience was dulled though by the waiter... More

This was a birthday occasion, just the two of us. We'd booked in advance so had seats outside, which is clearly the best way to enjoy the dining experience here. Service was at a high standard - friendly and knew the menus well. We both ended up with good wine. After deciding against sharing a seafood dish (lobster maybe), we... More

Otto's location amongst several well known restaurants on one of the finger wharf's at Woolloomooloo is a great place to watch how the other half live. As a non paying guest at a family function we enjoyed the degustation lunch with matching wines. As each course was served one of the waiting staff briefly described the dish, though less of...
