My husband and i went here for our anniversary dinner after many recommendations. The staff were very helpful. Being pregnant the waitress made up a special cocktail for me. The food is exceptional. The highlight was the fish pie and the berry soufflé and earl grey ice-cream.

I hadn't been here in a while and happy to report it's still very good and the snapper pie is still superb, worth the visit alone. Good service and a fair wine list round out a good restaurant, albeit they ran out of crab the night we went. The selection oy oysters is also excellent.

The location is great, looking out over the water towards ANZAC bridge and Pyrmont. The food was great, lovely fresh seafood and produce. The desserts were delicious. Everyone in our dinner party had a great evening. We had oysters to start, the river ones were our favourites. The staff were attentive and friendly.

Excellent food. Very interesting of fusion ingredients BUT IT WORKS! Beautiful location overlooking the harbor provides the right ambience for a delightful evening. Service was friendly, efficient and very helpful, including taking the initiative of ordering a taxi for us at the end of the meal.

I have been an irregular at Boathouse for many years. Their fresh menu and preparation of meals remains excellent. Their presentation and range of oysters shucked to order is the best I have experienced in Australia.
That said, the service has deteriorated dramatically. An exquisitely disdainful Maitre d', and nice, friendly wait-staff who desperately needed guidance. They forgot the menus, had to be asked for a wine list, left the first wine pour with half the table unserved, were clearly uninformed about the daily menu, and were unable to address the table, etc.
