Expensive but pleasant. My husband’s whole John Dory was delicious, my salmon was made enjoyable with the accompaniments. Crime Brûlée was superb. Quiet, we could talk. Tables well spaced. Good service - would only add that the remaining bread and olive oil should have been removed from the table.

Impeccable service for a special night. The food was creative and delicious. A highlight was the Raspberry Sorbet for desert.

We went there for New Year's Eve and were very happy with the meal package offered by the Hilton.

I traveled Cairns and Hamilton Island, Brisbane and the Gold Coast for two weeks.
  At the end of the trip and on the last day of 2019, we were expecting a great dinner in Sydney.
  But it didn't come true.
  The waiter told me at the table, "Today is only a New Year's Eve special course, no a la carte."
  Of course, that is perfectly fine. But then I noticed. They are not telling all other customers the same. I gave the same explanation to me and my Asian tourists. Other "white" customers were offered a variety of dishes, with a la carte and course choices.
  When I asked again, "Can I choose an à la carte?", The waiter explained that it was "only course".
  I've been eating at a number of restaurants, but this is the first time that my service has been different for different races. Moreover, shops that are listed in many guidebooks like this one should not have such a service.
Not recommended for travelers.

The problem the Hotel has is not the Restaurant but the doormen at the taxi entrance. On Saturday they were understaffed and we were ignored. On a previous occasion I was abused by the doorman who said to me “Don’t interrupt. Can’t you see I am busy!” He would have been fired on the spot in NYC or London or Paris. I reported it to the concierge but he was not interested

The service was excellent friendly professional the atmosphere was enjoyable but at times a little loud

We all had Christmas bonbons on our table when we arrived, the food was plentiful, very tasty and beautifully presented plus we were all given a small plum pudding to take home. Santa visited all the tables and had presents for children. Overall it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

I spoke with Sophie in Reservations about some food allergies we have and we worked together to design a menu for the day. It was our first Christmas without Dad so had asked if we could have a table in a quiet area near the window and not in the middle (a little protection for mamma on a tough day) - was delighted when seated to be positioned at the window and facing out to the city-it was perfect. The meal was amazing with food that just kept coming and was absolutely delicious.
From start to finish it was just perfect and I can’t thank the team enough for making a hard day for my family, one that we look back on with fond memories.

It was a casual date with my wife which traditionally we have every Christmas Eve. Having dined there on other occasions before we decided on Glass for our traditional date this year and did not regret it. We classify Glass as a special occasion restaurant and have not been disappointed.
We’ll be back.

Steak was lovely, but thin & presentation ordinary. Truffled mash was too liquidy. My table wasn’t served as well as others around me. Ambiance was great as always.

The restaurant is gorgeous. We arrived early and had drinks at the bar. We had the degustation menu with paired wines and although very expensive, it was outstanding. Food, service and ambience were 10/10. Highly recommend for special occasion.

The service was excellent but unfortunately the food was underwhelming. I expected the steak at this place would be flavorful and cooked to perfection, it turned out quite bland and tough. What a shame. I did also enjoyed the cocktail but I didnt really came for that.

140 bucks each for degustation menu. Food quality was poor, slow and uninteresting. Zero for value for money. Would not go here again. Was wondering why there were tables available on such short notice...

A good venue for a special occasion. Food, service and ambience was excellent however the wine was very disappointing. We had just returned from a holiday in Germany where we enjoyed some outstanding trocken rieslings so I ordered a bottle of German trocken riesling. I thought that it tasted a bit different and when we got to the end of the bottle there was a lot of sediment. I think the wine might have been off. I suspect that it had been too long in the cellar or incorrectly stored. I didn't say anything about it at the time to the waiter but thought afterwards that the wine should have been much better than that.

Once again the Glass delivered a beautiful meal and surrounding for the celebration of our 51st anniversary. We have celebrated the last 8 out of 10 at Glass. Unfortunately having mentioned it in our reservation no mention was made of it on the night. All in all a very enjoyable night.
