The delicious meal and wine selection made the night a memorable one. I definitely recommend Arthur to anyone looking for a five star meal in Sydney.
I’ve been to Arthur a couple of times now, and love it. The set menu is interesting, made expertly, and delicious. The staff are lovely, genuine, and helpful. Dessert has been absolutely spectactular, and I love that I don’t have to make any decisions.
The only thing to note was the space between the tables, it felt very awkward trying to maneuver between tables without disturbing the patrons along side, to make ones way to the rest room. Other than that I am extremely happy to recommend your restaurant to anyone. The service was excellent, the variety of food really good and the wine to match equally good. Well done and thank you!
Outstanding - loved it from start to finish...........we’ll be back.
This was a flawless dinning experience that made a special occasion even more special. I’ve not enjoyed a meal like this in some time.
The food was perfect, every course complimented each other and the use of locally source vegetables was definitely the star of the night. Tristan was very generous with his time explaining the dishes and answering all our questions. Love this new local and it is definitely in my top five if not number #1.
Exceptionally good food with excellent service. I'll be back.
Very small portions but great flavor
Had the most enjoyable evening at Arthur on a Sunday evening there. The service is attentive without being overbearing. Food is top notch, set menu had a good variety. Will be back!
Fantastic food and great service. They are obviously very passionate about what they do and it shows.
inventive menu, honed perfectly to intrigue and satisfy. Definitely coming back with friends who love interesting food
Everything was incredibly delicious and perfectly timed. Would definitely go back!
Fantastic meal; one of the real finds of the year. Excellent wine choices. Very enjoyable
This place will leave you wanting to back again. The service is exceptional and the food was spot on. Everything was cooked to absolute perfection. The flavours were delicious and something a bit different to everywhere else. The fact the menu changes to reflect seasonal produce is just more a reason to keep going back. Highly recommend!
Service and ambience both outstanding. Chefs and front of house obviously passionate and fantastic with their offering. I'll definitely be making a habit of dining here!
Arthur is a great inner city find. Food is creative and excellent. Staff are wonderful.
Me and my girlfriend had an amazing dinner. The menu consisted of five courses that were all creative and deliciouanin their own way. Unfortunately the lady on the table next to me was very loud. But before i even asked the staff, they told us that they have a different table available im case we were uncomfortable with the noise level. This showed me that they take care of their guests very well. All in all a great experience
delicious, fresh and innovative meals with great service
Delicious food, great variety and balance in flavours! Indulged my friday night there with my good friend
There is a lot to like about Arthur... pricing is amazing value for food and drinks and cosy dining fitout space is delightful (except for bugs) . But it’s not memorable, and hence a let down.
After reading all the media hype our expectations were high for a great seasonal dining experience with informed chefs bringing exciting dishes to table. After all, that’s the best thing about chefs coming to your table, getting the sense of their excitement for the created dishes. But..... other than main host (who was AMAZING and engaging on welcome and drinks!) the dishes were perfunctorily brought to table, delivery and descriptions that added nothing to that already described on menu (because the description is a list of ingredients, as is the plate... no surprises, no real high and lows... just great produce) and more just “put on table and walk away” kind of service from chefs.
After experiences like Peter Gunn at IDES, there needs to be more thought to who is bringing out food, to be enthused about the dishes and having thought to creating a dining environment (too many bugs all along wall and windows and in the air above table whilst eating) .... Being able to see plating and chefs from every point in restaurant, it felt more like a function centre plating where most dishes seems like assembly only. the tartare and fish dish were fantastic. The rest.... plain. Sauces too simple and dare I say it... bland. Not enough punch to make things memorable. Yes, ingredients AMAZING quality. Not enough of a great overall experience to rate the restaurant as a place you must go to. Nor is it so delicious that you would go back to try again.
A wonderful night out for two. The imaginative food offerings were only matched by the attentive and knowledgable service from all the staff. This is a sophisticated restaurant but without the stuffy atmosphere that can ensure. Great evening.
Delicious food and great service. Lovely local restaurant!
We left the restaurant hungry so we had a pizza. We shuffled out the restaurant because the next sitting was early. I can't begin to understand why Arthur has got good reviews.
Great tasting menu and fantastic value at $70pp. Relaxed service with courses served comfortably withing 2 hrs. Fun to see the dishes being served up in full view, everything fresh and a creative menu. Highly recommend for date / occasion with a relaxed ambiance.
The evening started well but got progressively worse...the dishes all started the taste the same - all heavily coated in a type of mayonnaise sauce which just killed the flavor of everything else. We requested(gave 4 days notice ) an alternative to the pork loin as we don’t eat pork. What arrived was this tasteless dish of egg plant and mushrooms- no flavor, no seasoning, no love. Just a plate of cardboard- it was actually shameful- I felt embarrassed for the chef.
To top it all it was incredibly noisy - you could barely have a conversation with the person next to you - mostly due to one large rowdy group table.
Overall incredibly disappointing- I was dining with an overseas guest - and I felt ashamed at the quality of the meal.
No bad courses, some standout courses. But best value set menu in Sydney.
Really enjoyed the food, not too heavy.
Friendly service, near door good spot. Cool breeze and not noisy. Already recommended to friends
All I can say is excellent food and wine and service
We all left very happy and contented
Took the Mrs out to Arthur for our wedding anniversary and it was perfect. The location, the atmosphere, the decor but most importantly the food all made for a memorable occasion. We loved the Arthur experience. The chefs have created a fantastic set menu, so once your there, order a bottle of wine, relax and enjoy one another's company. The rest is all handled for you. Can't wait to be back.
Delicious, creatively thoughtful food. Vegetables were a standout and so was the pork loin. Knockout dish was the rhubarb with honey cream and lavender granita. Who would have thought that a smidgeon of lavender flavoured granita could have such a impact? The restraint in that dish showed real understanding of flavour and balance. Altogether a beautiful meal that my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed from the first to last mouthful.
One of our most enjoyable dining experiences in Sydney. Well done to all the team for making it such a good experience. Keep up the good work guys
We went to Arthur for our anniversary celebration as it came with exceptional reviews. It could be that we had our expectations set quite high and therefore there was a very slight let-down. Food was good in general, although some dishes had one flavour that over-powered the rest (too sour or too salty). Desserts were fantastic. Noisy environment and seating is quite tight (just like any other restaurants in Surry Hills). Service is beyond excellent.
Best restaurant to open up for a while. Every dish got better & better. Great value would highly recommend!
It was our second visit in 3 weeks and the food & service was just as great as it was the first time. Outstanding value for money, amazing food, great Australian wine list. We will be back as soon as we can!!
The meal was so delicious, great value and the staff were very friendly. We were lucky enough to have the best seat in the house so we could watch the food being prepared. Very intimate meal, it was fantastic, can't recommend it enough.
Loved the 10 + course tasting menu. Most creative, generous and delicious. Will be back soon!
Arthur is incredible. The team constantly nail their menu, constantly innovating and respecting the core ingredients. It’s a REAL celebration of Australian food and wine. Worth it.
The team at Arthur make you feel welcomed from the moment you step in the door. Simple and elegant food served alongside a perfectly composed local drinks list, Arthur does not disappoint.
We dined at Arthur on a Friday evening and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food is outstanding, great wine list and the staff were lovely. Looking forward to our next visit.
Wonderful experience! We had a group of 5 with a few dietary requirements, the team at Arthur took care of it seamlessly. The food was fantastic. Will certainly be going back.
