We had dinner at Nineteen23. There was a degustation menu available but we went with the three course menu. There were plenty of choices for each course and the food was beautiful. One of the best meals we've had for awhile plus it was byo as well as licenced. A most enjoyable evening.

From the moment we walked in the door we were treated to stellar service from all staff at Nineteen23. We dined for lunch and decided on the a la carte menu.The food was exceptional and the wine selection suggested was a perfect match with our food. For our special occasion the Manager had kindly set a table for two on the deck with breathtaking views and sunshine to match. Don't hesitate to dine at this gem of a restaurant - we'll most certainly be back. A wonderful and memorable dining experience.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

My husband and I dined here for his 30th Birthday and I wasn't disappointed.
The service was perfect, attentive and friendly, the food was modern, fresh and very flavoursome.

The atmosphere was cosy, comfortable and intimate. I would recommend it for special occasions.
The manager was most helpful, organising for a candle to be placed in my husbands dessert, we were lucky as a group next to us started singing Happy Birthday as it came out, which was nice.

Ideal little restaurant in Wentworth, you would be crazy not to try it when visiting the area!

We got the alternating set menu for the group of us going out to dine one night during our Blue Mountains long weekend trip - does not disappoint!

Excellent fine dining, working together simple flavours with amazing textures for a great night of food experiences.

Well worth the visit and experience!

“Above themselves!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Our family had been looking forward to this degustation for ages.
A lot of money was paid.
The food was delicious!
We expected a nice slow night, 40 minutes between mouthfuls might be ok if the maître d wouldn't mind actually doing something other than the standard degustation and wine.
Requests for an extra wine or bread were rebuffed... Can we believe there was no extra bread!!??
The younger wait staff tried to be accommodating ... But the maître d had already spoiled the service. He just wasn't interested in doing anything other than delivering the courses and wine. A smile was definitely out of the question.
All in all, an expensive disappointment! Good food, terrible service! Lacks finesse.
Wouldn't survive in Sydney, or with any competition.
