Finally got to this restaurant after hearing many recommendation. Perfect meal and BYO makes for a great nice. Staff are great and service professional. Couldn't fault it. I will be back. Sliced T-bone the standout dish but so many other great choices I need to try.

We had never been to 16 before and were pleasantly surprised by the size and complexity of the menu. Once inside, the food and service were both even better. The courses were that little bit different and very creative, beautifully cooked and presented, with something for everyone. As someone pointed out, it's well-known by locals, for good reason. We will... More

No matter how many times we come here, am always surprised at how good this is in every way, a small intimate space but relaxing and casual with attentive service and the best quality food - a superb spatchcock with mushroom risotto and the best quality lamb rack perfectly cooked, what more could you ask for. Wonderful value for the... More

There's a number of components to a great dining experience and Restaurant 16 had them all - relaxed ambience, attentive service, BYO wine/champagne well handled, good menu with many specials, nicely paced delivery and very, very good, clean, fresh simple food. Luscious !

One of Sydney's best for Italian but unfortunately, location restricts wider interest - a neighbour gem favoured by locals but it is not in the main restaurant strip near Young Street. Excellent entrees and mains, excellent quality produce, but this is one of the few places where we actually have dessert, the apple dessert is to die for.

For a long time I had always wanted to dine at Restaurant 16. Promotion seemed very low key but there always seemed a high level of occupancy. The locals know it well! The occasion came up this week and we selected the 7 course tasting menu. We were not surprised how high the quality of the dishes were. All courses... More

Address is actually Neutral Bay , not Cremorne, and can be difficult to find and park although it is on the main road. Often take guests here as it can be relied on for quality and service. Wonderful quality produce, a couple of favourites are scallops for entree and lamb or spatchcock for mains.

Since moving to the sunny coast, don't enjoy 16 as much as I'd like but make a beeline as often as possible. Menu is more simple than I remember but the food is just as good ; the scallop entree is superb as is the spatchcock with risotto main - rarely have dessert and never thought I would eat an... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and took us to it when we were recently in Sydney. The food was really outstanding and different. The hosts were lovely and friendly and provided a wonderful environment to talk and eat. It was a whole night out with the tasting platter. They provided just enough and not too much time between meals so... More
