We are members of a book club called The Happy Bookers,, so we needed an area where we could discuss the book we had to read whilst having coffee..and the Primus Hotel fitted the bill with a generous seating area...then on to lunch at the Wilmot..a few steps away, where we enjoyed a very good lunch , great food and
good service. The Happy Bookers will be back no doubt about that.

We had a wonderful afternoon and High Tea at The Primus.
The two items I would point out:-
The savoury element focuses on seafood (oysters, gravalax), which I absolutely loved, but it may not be for everyone.
We had two children with us (10 and 5) and they were keen to try the high tea but it was hard to do so at full price. I know nobody wants the hotel flooded with kids but it might be a nice idea to put together a kids option like similar hotels do.
Service was fine, overall I'd recommend.

How the Wilmot has escaped the flood of foodies that make up Sydney is inexplicable. The menu is varied and inventive. The food is absolutely fantastic. The surroundings are classy-cool 1920's revivalist.
Go now before the secret gets out!

The food was excellent but while the floor staff were friendly and professional, they were still learning. There was only one vegetarian dish on the menu, which had chilli in it. The staff were reluctant to offer an alternative. Once my wife finally spoke to the kitchen staff, they were only too happy to knock up a vegetarian pasta dish, which was beautiful. At $50 for two courses of excellent food and a not so excellent glass of wine, it's great value. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed the friendliness of the staff on duty the night we had our birthday dinner there, especially Manju who was very attentive. The dish I had was nice and spicy, the atmosphere entertaining and enjoyable. The lovely surprise was receiving a special birthday at the end, thank you so much. We are already planning our next visit there.

Went to the Wilmot with a group of friends for a catch-up.
Totally wowed by the food, wine and restaurant space. The bar and restaurant areas have a beautiful art deco feel, with a great atmosphere that facilitiated good conversation. Service was excellent, but not intrusive. Before we knew it, 10.00 had chimed, and time to return home to the comfort of our beds!!

Friendly staff but food was below par. Had wagyu for main, thought it was tough and no favour. Melted cheese with mango cubes around it and called it mango cheesecake. Surly can do better than that!

My friend and I had a very pleasant dining experience at Wilmot at Primus Hotel. We went there for lunch. We both had steak dishes which were delicious. The cuts of meat were of high quality and the steaks were perfectly cooked. Very pleasant service as well. Would recommend to others.

A lovely meal shared with my niece for her birthday. Food was tops, though I would have liked at least one other vegetarian dish to choose from. But what we had was delicious. Staff were helpful, but discrete. The Creme Brulee is to die for!

Please don't pour the tea for the customer - many people like to let it brew more, especially with only one teabag.

We had a great girls' catch up session over High Tea there. With multiple change requests, staff were very accommodating, good service too. A little disappointing with the finger sandwich choice was with pickled cucumber, but overall food choices were good, enjoyed the scone especially.

Didn’t want to go far so booked this restaurant near my accommodations. The quail looked nice but was rather a letdown as it was a bit overdone, the dried grapefruit was colourful but didn’t go well with the salad; the lamb shoulder was good - quite well marinated, succulent inside but crispy on the outside. It was a nice move to offer wine pairing with the menu, though there should always be a choice of just ordering food? The service was warm and genuine. All in all, a little bit disappointing at $55.38 ($62.38 with tips).

Second time to have dinner with friends. This one was on a friday night. Only once the server missed a drink order, overall service was excellent and friendly.
The restaurant wasn’t full and would have appreciated not being seated in the middle of the foot traffic area. It would be a perfect 10 if we were asked if we wanted a quieter area, after all, catching up with friends is best if we can talk and have privacy and not in the middle of the action across the floor of the restaurant.
