Meat and wine was good, although the mushroom and pepper sauces were way too sweet and inedible. Also chargrilled pork was a little burnt.

Ambience is lovely. Place is hip and vibrant. Had a friends Bday in the VIP section and we were made to feel like VIP! Food is delicious, servings are generous and the drinks are delicious. A must go for anyone who wants a melt in your mouth steak.

Have only been here 3 times since its quite expensive. Despite the prices, the quality of steak is pretty good. Service is sometimes lacking as the restaurant is usually full at night and staff are trying to get everybody's orders in and out of the kitchen which makes you wait at times but the food makes up for it.

Last week after a terrible dining experience at the Meat and Wine Co, I sent a letter to their functions team and head office. 5 days later, I have still not received a response and so... I thought I would share my complaint with everyone and advise you all, that when choosing a restaurant at Darling Harbour - you have so many choices, stay away from the Meat and Wine Co.
As for my night... It was highly disappointing and completely ruined the night. A 30th birthday is an important occasion and with family travelling down from the coast for a dinner out, it was terrible. I spent so long researching restaurants we could dine at and have been saving for several months so we could really lash out and enjoy the night.
To start with, 3 guests received their pre dinner drinks. They had finished their drinks before the remaining 3 drinks reached the table (or does it start when I received a text message confirming a booking for 2 people, when it should have been 6 people... for a table I booked 6 weeks in advance?)
We ordered entrees and mains and wine. Wine was good (the second bottle we ordered, as they had none of our first choice left) and entrees were good.
As for the mains... my sister ordered the fish. It didn't arrive with all the meals, but a waiter came over and said it would only be a few minutes. 15 minutes later it arrived - so much for rushing it through the kitchen as the waiter said. 6 minutes at best to cook a piece of fish. I would have said that the table had finished eating, except my meal and my dad's meal, we barely touched.
I ordered the beef and prawn skewers - medium - as recommended. They came out very well done, chewy, tough and horrible to eat. My dad ordered the steak and rib combo - medium rare - came out much closer to medium-well. We ordered sides for the table - these arrived late too and not all at once! Lucky the beans and mac and cheese were good, because that was what I ate. Odd, that I visited a steak restaurant and the only thing that was cooked well was vegetables and pasta!
I asked 3 times to speak to the restaurant manager - after 25 minutes he finally made his way to the table and offered dessert and coffee to compensate - an insult really. We asked for the bill so we could leave. I waited 20 minutes for the bill before heading the main wait stand to pay.
I have worked previously as a hotel manager in Sydney, and this level of service would not be accepted from my staff. When you are paying nearly $50 for a main meal, if the waiter comes to the pass and only 5 of the 6 dishes are ready, with a 15 minute wait on the 6th dish, then nothing comes out! Pre dinner drinks with the bread - should all arrive at the same time.
The restaurant manager even asked me once we started our meals, did anyone come to check on us, see how it was all going - no! We pushed food around the plate and waited for the fish to arrive, and none of the staff come to see if we were okay. But if they are following the example of the restaurant manager who took 3 requests and 20 minutes to come to the table, why should the floor staff do any better.
My advice, do not eat here!

This is where we have lunch and blow the regular budget - bit expensive but always quality all round.

Quite expensive for what we ordered. All three of us had the beef and prawn skewers very ordinary. Waiter was good however when we went to pay, the lady at the counter said we could only pay credit! She pressed the wrong button and I guess she couldn't be bothered to correct the transaction. Don't think I will ever go back to the meat and wine co Darling Harbour.

Steak: Very good.
Would I go back? Yes.
Had to rush through dinner as on our way to Jesus Christ Superstar...

Compared to the old Parramatta restaurant, the food and service here is below the mark. Visited here twice recently, once for dinner and once for lunch. At lunch I felt the waiter was extremely pushy and wanted to order all my food for me. At dinner, the waiter was rather inattentive. Quality is ok but menu range isn't that broad in terms of fish options. Nice position and nice internal ambience although a bit loud downstairs.

Best steaks I've ever eaten. The food is towards the pricier side. Steaks were worth the money but everything else not so much (especially the salads). I would definitely still return just to eat steaks!
