    Catch up lunch after 2 years, it was great to be able to sit and talk as the noise level was perfect. We had a nice summer table in the corner which was also great.

    Manager who was on duty on Thursday 12 May did a fantastic job in accommodating to my team's farewell drinks. We ended up sitting at a table in the restaurant and were able to have the lights dimmed to create a warm ambience. Booking this place was easy, my team had a great time, food was great. Will definitely come back next time!

    The venue was outstanding as we had it to ourselves :) The food was great, and we will be back for more. Most importantly the staff was phenomenal, they knew who we were and our preferences and did everything to make us feel at home. Loved it and this place is not to be missed.

    Booked this for a group of executives, they turned up and the restaurant was closed. Thisis after receiving 2 confirmation emails and now this review. No phone calls or emails were sent to advise that they wouldn't be opening on the evening booked with confirmations. We as a business will never book or use Vessel again. Very disappointing but luckily Bel Brio made the extreme effort to squeeze our team in. 3 of these execs were from interstate and overseas. A very bad look for Vessel but great for Bel Brio. Would only recommend people steer clear of Vessel.

    Good food and great servings. Well priced for a restaurant on King Street/Barangaroo. Really casual atmosphere. Service was good, took a while to get some service, but once I did it was all systems go :)

    Service was missing . We literally had to clear our own plates and classes and place them on an empty table beside us. Don't order the steak - the most expensive item on the menu was also the smallest. A dissapointing experience - considering i had invited 14 guests for lunch
