A great evening with Family, good service, but pity about my 36 day fillet steak, tough and stringy ,staff were indifferent,one other of the Family also a little disappointed with quality, We expected much more for the very expensive food and drinks, it didn't spoil our evening completely ,but we will NOT be returning to Rockpool , overrated dining,I have eaten in restaurants world wide,and quality always tops,this visit very poor.
Management note my name...D Davies.

Rockpool is always on point with excellent steaks and service and for those who dont want steak, the menu has some incredible seafood selections and one of the best wine menus (book) you'll ever come across, it is difficult to not enjoy the experience of Rockpool dining. Well worth it.

We stayed at the towers over the weekend and decided to go to rockpool for dinner on the first night.
We were seated quickly but after refusing to order wine and just opting for a simple lemon lime bitters, the waitress seemed less enthusiastic to serve us.
The food was lovely, but small portions and a bit pricey... (even for a higher class restaurant)
When I asked for the bill, the waitress basically stood over the top of me and I felt pressured to write a tip amount. I totally regret that now, as I have had much better service at other restaurants over the weekend, who deserved a tip more than her.

Just a tip to the staff- A genuine smile goes a long way. We left ASAP as we did not feel comfortable.

Recently went for my first visit, along with friends and my wife.

Food - fantastic. We skipped entrees and each went for an incredible steak and a number of delicious sides. Then finished the meal with light but amazing desserts.

Service was very good and at the level you would expect for this level of restarurant.

We were all impressed by the ambience and didn’t feel too close to other tables.

Up to the point I was to pay the bill I would have rated this a 5 out of 5....then.

Well then as I looked at the bill for several hundred dollars (which I expected) I said I would pay by card and was both shocked and disappointed when I was told there would be a charge for using a card.

On principle I personally think card charges are utterly ridicous, they are part of running a business and should be simply factored as part of the cost when determining pricing. But for a fine dining restaurant when a bill will always go into the hundreds I find it simply ridiculous.

We have a great time Monday night at Rockpool! My boyfriend organise a surprise and he organise a dinner there to celebrate my birthday!
Great food, fantastic combination of flavours and very well presented dishes... from the entree to the dessert! Everything was just perfect.
Service was attentive and professional, and a big thank you to the 2IC Rafael (hope I spelt right :)
Thank you Rockpool team! We will be back and recommend this restaurant!
