    For two people a two course meal and 4 or 5 glasses of wine ended up costing just over $400 absolutely absurd price, there was a great deal of fat on the steak and the other meal was just chicken, the price for what we received was quite unbelievable,

    The food is, for the most part, lovely and the view is spectacular. However, the service staff were not great. They had very little knowledge of the food and wine they were serving. We also had to spend a considerable time trying to catch a waiters attention to get the bill.

    An hour for entre wait was terrible. We ordered first and people at the window got to get their food before us and they ordered after us!!! Sage the waiter was terrible. Tried to offer us alcohol for the wait time and we don’t drink and I was 7 months pregnant! Told us to have a sip!! Unbelievable. Not recommending to anyone and will not be returning

    We were seated with an amazing window seat which I requested prior. $14 for sparkling water is a bit ridiculous. Good selection of wines but the waitress poured a whole glass of wine when I asked for just a tasting. The entree tuna and prawn was just okay, and oxtail was a nice start to the evening. I had the duck which was a bit dry and tough, but chicken was gorgeous. Highly recommend the vanilla stone but not the Jaffa chocolate- very average. Decent waiting time, and thoroughly enjoyed my evening with a beautiful view.

    Booked in advance fir Valentines dinner. Requested a window seat if one was available , but we didn’t get one although there were / empty window seats OR we paid $450 per head . The $570 booking didn’t have enough food and I’m not a big bloke So we ordered more and that took the bill to $750 with the surcharge. Food was divine but overly overpriced in my opinion . It was a first time experience fir my better half , and don’t get me wrong, I’m not shy to pay

    For a well priced restaurant - service was atrocious! Thankfully food was delicious, but it's the service that makes you come back, not a pleasant experience, when you're offered wine for your main meal and they don't bring it till your near finished - that's poor service

    The staff were professional, friendly and attentive. We had Chloe initially (and cherish) and she was extremely lovely and recommended the most beautiful meals. I can’t speak highly enough about her. The food was amazing. We had the three course meal and everything was delicious and great portion sizes. The view of the harbour was lovely and the atmosphere was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be back again!

    Aren't we lucky to have the beautiful Sydney harbour view? Having High Tea there certainly is a memorable experience. You have to pay additional to have the window view ($110 vs $95). We had the Festive High Tea, nice theme except missing a few traditional high tea elements, such as finger sandwiches, beautiful tea sets. Overall a nice experience except we were rushed out in 2 hours as they needed to accommodate the next booking.

    The staff were very welcoming and helpful when we asked questions or when we were unsure of things. They came around at a good pace and were very lovely during the evening.

    We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and we're treat like royalty. The overall dining was excellent, from the welcome to the food and drinks. But many thanks to our waitress, Tracey and sommelier, Adam - they both were very lovely and made our dinner date that more enjoyable.

    It was my first time at Altitude celebrating our 1 year anniversary hoping for it to be special and a beautiful evening unfortunately our evening was far from that, the food and service was below average I was notified to get a window seat the cap is $550 which I thought wouldn’t be worth it as I am pregnant and not drinking and the bill still came at $550 with our table being far from the window we had no views at all.. my husband asked for his steak to be good medium and it came out well done, really disappointing 1st anniversary dinner I do not recommend this restaurant.
