I had a great time celebrating my mum's birthday with an absolute feast. The only issue I had was whilst waiting to be seated after making a booking, the lady at the queue table informed us to wait for our table. We came on time but due to waiting in the queue. we finally spoke with the lady a few minutes after 8pm and she told us to wait to be seated. I waited for 5 minutes so I asked; "what's the point of making a booking, if we have to wait to be seated?" - she was being vague with her response and assuring me she will give us seats, and tried to use the reason we weren't seated was because of being late 7 minutes. Poor customer experience - luckily we were seated shortly after the little dispute, overall would go back just ensure when people make reservations, actually reserve it.

I booked a table by window but they didn’t really keep it for us. The food were ok but hard to ask help from the staff cuz they were too busy to take care of every table. And also one staff told us that we only have 1.5 hours to finish our dinner that’s quite annoying. The service is not matching the good food quality.

Have reservation for the table and have to wait for 20 mins for the table that is not right. What is the point for booking. They didn’t reserve a table for us.

Been here several times but felt disappointed this time around. Needed to raise my hand a few times to get attention from the waitress. Despite repeating the order, there was one incorrect order and the dish had to be returned to kitchen. The famous pork rib seems a bit dry but lamb ribs were excellent. The pork ribs price keep increasing and almost $60 for a full rack now. I don’t think it’s that value for money anymore. This would be the last visit to Hurricane.

Had the long fed beef. Tasted great. Did not feel rushed to leave which has not always been the case at Hurricanes, which let us enjoy the experience even more.

Being in Sydney for the first time, we figured we’d go to a nice steak place...this place wasn’t exactly what we wanted.
The place was a little dated (1980’s sheik) but clean (except for the one glass on our table with lipstick on it). The staff was friendly but not exceptional.
The food was good. Nothing special, just an average meal. The fries were over salted, but the steak was good, as were the ribs. The fish in the fish and chips was slightly over oiled. The ribs and steak only came with one side.
Had the meal been half the price, it would have been more reasonable. The price point for what you receive was disappointing.

Booked for 7 PM for 3 people. Refused to be seated at the table at 6.55 PM, the front desk insisted for me to wait for the rest of the party to arrive. Had the party at 7 PM, but still told that there is no table, although saw free tables. They requested me to seat at the bar, although no free seats were available by the bar and we had to stand. Ordered $ 9.50 cider at the bar - got passed a bottle, had to ask for a glass. had to self-serve the straw. Finally was offered to seat at the table, but warned that we have strict 1 hour 30 minutes, until... we will be escorted out. Idiotic policy, as the restaurant was nearly empty an hour later. Will never return, they can stick their business model, where it belongs.

The food was not good. It was served 5 minutes after we ordered, so we felt it was pre-made and not cooked to order. The ribs i received were very dry and not all that tasty. We ordered drinks, which we were later told were no longer available, which was strange as it appeared to be a slow Sunday early evening. We were charged for those drinks even though the weren't on offer, so incorrect billing, bad food, and inaccurate menus made for a disappointing birthday experience.

We booked a table for 8 o clock a week ahead, and got there at 7:20, to be waiting for our table until 8:50 and was offered a round of free drinks to compensate. Only three people out of the eight drank alcohol, so wasn’t very impressed. What’s the point of booking a table if you’re going to wait around like walk ins ?

The food was incredible as well as the service provided to us by the waiter. That’s where it stops. The setup at the front door is nothing but chaos and total disorganisation. As much as I understand a popular restaurant, the system you have set in place is ridiculous. There’s no line set up at the front of your restaurant or signage for people with bookings. There’s a literal crowd hovering at the front door. I’ve been to plenty of busy restaurants and not once seen anything like the set up at this hurricanes. People with reservations like us that had to wait well over the reserved time have no where to sit because walk in patrons take up that seating while they wait for a table.

I had a booking for 7 this week for my wife’s birthday. When we arrived the manager gave us a corner seat with minimal view of the harbour, she refused to arranged a different seat whatsoever. The beef ribs were dry and overdone.....However the best moment of the night was that the waitress serving us the drinks spilled the whole glass of apple juice to my son, he was absolutely soaked!!

Thanks team for the unforgettable dining experience at Hurricane Darling Harbour!

Food was amazing! Place was really busy and had to wait 15mins even though we had a booking. Pricing is standard for hurricanes. Food came out quickly. Waiter that served us was great, even checked up on us during the evening. We even had a table on the window which was great. Thanks for the amazing night

The food and drinks were great! A particular female waitress wasn’t really attentive while taking the food order, and served us the drink we didn’t order. I ordered the popcorn dessert cocktail not the biscotti, so the biscotti drink was served and she persistently insisted that was the popcorn drink. Product knowledge isn’t superb. Furthermore, she was the one that brought us the bill and the biscotti drink was in the bill too.

You would expect that Tuesday evening would be relatively quiet. It was nothing like that. The restaurant was full earlier in the evening even before 7:00 pm.

Hurricane Grill has always been popular with tourists so it is only normal for one to expect service is world class. Personally my experience is that even if at times you feel lost in the crowd, someone would come to your table to see how things are going and remind you that you're being looked after, in spite of the volume of guests.

The food is good. The timing of when meals arrive is excellent. Overall, the experience is wonderful.

Making on-line reservation is a must a few days before intended meal time, especially if coming for a special occasion. Weekends would even be more crowded.
