Good quality food. The service at Dead Ringer was beyond reproach. We are from interstate but will definitely come back when in Sydney again.
A surprising find as one of the very few restaurants in the area that seemed to be opened on a Monday of a long weekend. Very welcoming staff, food was excellent and we made use of the shared plate arrangement. The wine while quite expensive was adequate.
Sadly I feel the day of BYO restaurants where you can bring great wine from ones own cellar instead of paying the highly inflated prices charged is dying.
We are from interstate so will probably not return but I would recommend this restaurant for the food.
Wonderful Gnocchi and the Broccolini was fabulous but the Pavlova was the best I've ever had. The coconut gelato on top! A plum layer that was not very sweet but rich and deep sitting on top of a slice of perfect shell and some exquisite cream.
Had a great time. Amazing food and drinks, especially the sticky date pudding.
Delicious food - loved the Feed Me menu with great service! Definitely recommend
Went for a birthday dinner for two, such a great atmosphere. The team were very accomodating with dietaries and the food was exceptional.
Expensive taking into consideration the small and simple meals. It’s not a good option to have dinner.
Hi Anna! Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to leave a review. Sorry you didn't have the best time with us, I would love to hear more about your experience here -could you email me directly? Sally Gyles Venue Manager email@example.com
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Definitely a place to come back to.
Had a lovely tasting menu for our wedding anniversary. Staff were very helpful matching our wines. Overall a dining delight
Great place, lovely food and really friendly staff!
Really enjoyed our dinner, great service, unrushed but attentive, found excellent, will be back!
Fantastic personable service and exceptional food. Would definitely dine at Dead Ringer again.
Amazing food! delicious Focaccia, Burrata and steak!
Food and wine was delicious, service was attentive and friendly
Incredible food and service of the highest order, will be back!
More of a dinner / bar vibe than a brunch venue especially if you’re after a good breaky and coffee.
The food is excellent and the staff are great. They know the menu, they’re friendly, attentive and just always available. Had a very impressive dining experience here. The salted sticky date pudding was probably the best I’ve had.
Amazing food, amazing service and awesome vibes! Will definitely be back
Food was fresh, delicious and interesting menu - not your typical brunch. Service was friendly, kind and thoughtful with lots of little generous touches
Simple great vibe especially outdoor setting.
Drinks were yummy and refreshing.
Food was incredible and so accomodating - could not fault it at all. Amazing service from Max and the welcoming staff too, what a bunch of great sports.
I will say that it was a shame when Max clocked off and we changed server as he wasn't particularly happy to be serving us (he told us he "wasn't feeling the ambience we were creating" and to shut up).
Appreciate we could have been quieter, however, I do think there was a better way to ask.
Definitely don't let it put you off coming here though, loved it. Thank you team for looking after us.
Hi Sophia, Thanks for your review and we’re sorry this wasn’t handled quite right at the time! We’ll take your feedback on board and look forward to hosting you again soon. Sally Venue Manager
Went here for bottomless brunch with a friend and the food was absolutely delicious, and there was more than enough food and it was great, even the plates that I was mildly concerned about. And the service was so efficient and fantastic. Nothing worse than paying for a bottomless mimosa package and only being able to order a couple drinks becuase they are slow with service, at Dead Ringer they are basically replacing your glass as soon as you finish so you can control the pace as you see fit :) definitely coming back.
The food was fantastic, we did the set menu and every item was so good! Can’t wait to come back
Loved it all. Vibe, service & all the food was exceptional.
Couldn't recommend more! Such lovely food, great atmosphere, and incredible service! Cannot wait to go back.
Great service! Great food! Great vibe!
Will be booking a table again soon.
Delicious food - there was no rushing between courses ( weekend set brunch/ lunch menu) lovely staff very helpful
Thank you Dead Ringer
Great food in a good location. High tables/bar aren't super comfy so aim for normal tables or outside.
Dead ringer is one of my go to restaurants in Surry hills. Service is always above and beyond! Thank you to the incredible staff for always making the dining experience so warm, welcoming and all around enjoyable.
Food and drinks are always perfection. Standout dish this visit: Creamed almond, with beet and black sesame starter. Out of this world.
Can’t wait to come back again soon!
Wonderful as always. Loved the gnocchi and Dom’s wine suggestions as always were perfect. We had a very lovely, I think “funky” was Dom’s description, Malbec.
The food and service was excellent. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. The dishes were not your normal brunch fare and very tasty. Juts the right amount of food also
Wonderful attentive service, delicious food and grateful for the catering of dietary requirements.
Always a treat at Dead Ringer - top level service and high quality food - hard to beat boozy brunch spot!
The food is brilliant and the service was even better. It’s a beautiful place for a couple or a small group of friends.
The food and service was great! Good value for what you pay.
Excellent quality food & service. Highly recommend
Great food, really cool brunch place, the set menu is definitely worth it.
I love this place, this was my third visit and the staff are great, they're all really friendly and the service was superb. I had a bottomless brunch and you definitely get your moneys worth.
Great atmosphere and service. The food is a little bland for the price.
Great afternoon in a lovely setting. Service was warm, welcoming, friendly and professional. Will definitely be back.
We had a fantastic night and hope to visit again!
