Rocket Restaurant was a Groupon Voucher that I purchased. It's in Chatswood in the foodie area which is central to everything. We started with scallops which were fresh and delicious and so pretty on the plate, everything was cooked perfectly and the vegetables were amazing and a great start. We seen oysters being delivered to another table and asked to... More

First up we were given a limited menu which was different from what I had seen on their website..... Having questioned this, we were informed that it was the Groupon menu. We were not using a Groupon voucher. Having obtained the correct menu, we ordered. The lamb served was basically raw with blood on the plate. Sent it back twice... More

Lunch for 6 people on a Friday. The place was pretty empty so quiet, which was useful for us but not the proprietor. My lunch special, lemon sole with buerre noisette was very good. Wait staff were discreet, menu was designed well to cater for variety of tastes. Wine selection reasonable on variety and price. It has the quality niche... More

No real service to speak of. Unattended for the most part until we would wave our hands about. Also had sand and stones in a risotto I sent back, then waited 15 minutes for a new one, by which time the others had all finished eating. I then got a sloppy risotto. They still had the cheek to charge for... More

We dined mid week, there were only 3 other couples in the restaurant. We had a Groupon voucher but that doesn't excuse the limited menu and poor showing of our meals. I had the scallops for entrée, 2 very small scallops appeared with a tasteless carrot purée. Main was a fillet steak which was nicely cooked, accompanied by nice vegetables.... More

Interesting courses all round and they were presented beautifully however my eye fillet steak was wee bit tough. Taste was excellent though.

This is our second time at this restaurant. We had such a lovely meal here with 6 of our very close friends. The food was fabulous and we had the added bonus of having a private room which was great as we had bought our own special wine which was set up very well for us. Thank you for a... More

We have been several times and enjoyed our meals every time. We also recently organised a function (30 adults and 4 kids) and the whole experience was excellent. Food was good (as always) and the chef even arranged special dishes for the children that worked a treat. Often, for a larger function, the food can be a bit hit &... More

We had dinner here as a group of 4. We don't live in the area so driving into Chatswood and finding someone to open the boom gate into the parking area underneath was a bit of a challenge. The food is basically French-inspired, steak and frites, fish, pate, but also risotto. A bit of a mix. I had the fish... More
