    The foods was outstanding especially the octopus. The decorations and atmosphere was impressive. Pony was approx 70% full on weekday lunch. The staffs were very busy and overlooked some small things but accepted. We had a lovely lunch today.

    Great quality food, with a variety of choices to suit the group. The tomahawk was delicious and cooked exactly as ordered - perfect for a groupf of 4 hungry gentlemen! Service was prompt and efficient, without being intrusive. Would definitely go again. Thank you.

    Our waitress was nice, little bit inexperienced but still pleasant. Food is nothing too special. Would have been nice if tables were spread a little further apart cause the table next to me all kept coughing....

    Well rehearsed and trained staff, The good was good, portions just right yet extra for sides definitely required as a piece of meat on a plate kind of looks and feels desperate for company. Especially the prices asked. Otherwise good flavour, wine list offered a good variety.

    Average to disappointing dining experience - long waits for food, expensive for the quality. There are better dining experiences for the money. Would not go back. Pony used to be a real experience- not sure where they went off the rails.

    I was disappointed in our experience at Pony Dining. We had no complaints about the food. The menu is unremarkable but our steaks were well cooked. The real let down was the service. After we arrived I said to my partner that none of the staff seemed happy and the atmosphere was vey flat. There was no effort to engage the customers and the staff rarely smiled. Then, shockingly, our waiter dismissed me with a wave of his hand not once but twice when I asked for our wine to be topped up. Luckily for us this surly young man did not attend our table again. Alas what was meant to be a Father’s Day treat was an expensive disappointment. I recommend management invest in some customer service training.

    Was looking forward to dine here for a birthday celebration, however the overall experience was subpar. Customer service is not their forte, no attention to detail (booking was clearly marked with notes for a birthday and advised the wait staff on the night - however dessert was served as normal no birthday fan fare, which was quite dissapointing). Floor staff/manager of floor staff need a refresher in customer service. We dined on the food month offer, restaurant kept serving us servings for 2 people, had to remind them we are a table of 4 people - shouldn’t be something guests have to point out, undercutting meals is not a good look. Overall the steak main and caramel tart were good.

About the restaurant

Style and sass at Pony...

Widely regarded as one of the pioneers of the wood fire grill in Sydney, Pony offers an honest flavour driven menu that showcases prime Australian produce, a carefully crafted boutique selection of wines and a cheeky cocktail list. At the heart of the kitchen is a signature Argentinean wood fire grill which is used to create sensational meat dishes, prepare fresh seafood and an array of shared and larger plates.

Pony Dining is located in Sydney's oldest laneway within the historic and bustling dining precinct of The Rocks. Restaurant designer Michael McCann has transformed the centuries old building into a stunning dining space that features a large open kitchen (with a pony hide clad counter), a 10 meter long dining table on the outdoor deck, an intimate lounge for pre-dinner drinks, heritage brick walls, and commissioned woven art hangings - making this space a truly unique dining destination.

Best dish: Pony Cut Rib Eye (450g)
