When you first enter you are greeted by a very slick bar and seating. Reminded me of bars you might find in New York, all dark and moody. We ordered a couple of Negroni’s while we waited for our friends. The Negronis were delicious, but...More

I must admit, being a 3 hatted restaurant I expected great food but actually ended up getting so much more. When you arrive you are greeted by a dark, clubby room and welcomed warmly by the host. As we were led to our table, every...More

Wonderful experience. Sepia has a lovely atmosphere, fantastic service and creative dishes that are well presented and taste delicious. The drink pairings were well thought out. Although some worked better than others. I was not a huge fan of the extra cheese course with matching...More

They refuse to cater to vegan dietary requirements in this day and age? Completely backwards. Only more and more people will be asking for vegan/plant-based options. Get with the times, Sepia.

I’ve been lucky enough to dine in some amazing restaurants but it’s been a while since I’ve been this impressed. From the onset, the service was exceptional, the decor simply and elegant. Thursday night booking was a good idea as it wasn’t too busy so...More

When seafood is served in ways you’d never expect, my ears do an encouraging flap. Scanner crab is topped with sake jelly in a star pattern and dusted with dried tomato. Wait till you get the taste-hit of pea and horseradish transformed by liquid nitrogen...More

Definitely one of Sydney’s finest. A real shame they are closing up and leaving! Food and service was exquisite. There was simply not a dish that did not hit the mark. The Patagonian toothfish and the orange done 5 ways dessert were highlights. Can’t wait...More

Beware before you make any reservations, because you're signing up to an unfair contract with leverage on their part. Dined as a party of 2 instead of the 3 booked, as a friend had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances. The maitre'd OK'd us and...More

Refined food and service with a sense of humour. Tables a bit bare for the price we paid : food $245 per person degustation plus $145 per person for matching wines. A nice soft upholstered table cloth would have been nice. The forest floor dessert...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

I wouldn't say this place is kid friendly. There are no high chairs and the food is catered for an adult. Plus it would ruin the experience for someone who wants to enjoy their luxurious dinner.
