Update: Until this day I still feel the same as when I originally wrote this review. O bar management has claimed I lied about making a request to making a video there and they acknowledged with "I will pass on your request" on Mar22. I've uploaded the screenshot of that conversation SO MAKE SURE YOU LOOK AT THE PICTURE I uploaded for Obar. Again, my specific request was "nice table with a fantastic view so that I can make a video of our experience". If they paid attention to this request they would've set us up with a safe area to capture our memories. I guess I will not be organizing our wedding here since they deny everything about videography. Instead we will do our destination wedding in Thailand. We will forget Obar for their overly pricing the poor quality food. The view is not worth a dollar at this establishment. If it was possible to give 0 stars or negative stars I would've given that. On March 21 we made a request along with our booking to be setup with a certain request, they said they will be happy push the request forward but heard nothing back. Long story short we did not get setup w an area safe to capture our memories. Food is terrible and it will not fill you up. The view and staffs are good. The crackers are really dry and stale. The lobster meat and scallop was not plumpy and tasted dead not live nor fresh. It's like it was frozen. The salmon did not taste fresh either. The yellow fin tuna was bloody and tasted like it came out of a vacuum seal package that's been broken. The fish dishes were too salty and smelt very fishy and not fresh. The fish meat texture was mushy and dead. The cheap quality pork meat was still pink and the texture was tough. The chocolate mousse tasted cheap and not cold. After letting them know about all of our experiences with the food; The manager told us they "guarantee the food is fresh" but we just said "it doesn't matter what they think, we're just telling it is how it is and this is our experience." They simply just did not care. When booking you must comply and agree to leaving at a certain time. At this point We were very happy to comply and left as soon as we could. There was also a service charge on the bill in place of tipping. For those that don't know the culture here doesn't tip. The workers are paid at a higher min wage than USA therefore we tip in America. We DO NOT recommend this establishment. Our experience over all was not worth our time here. Update to the manager's response to my review: The information you received was not accurate. Yes, I communicated through Facebook and back in March is when I said I'd be going there to make videos/photos for our channel on Youtube. The reply was that the message will be past on. Apparently the communication is the problem and that is what I pointed out to the female manager that night ( I didn't get her name). Our booking was for 5 people. Therefore all 5 witnessed the quality of food that was served that night. There has similar experiences from other customers who agreed and other compliments to my reviews for O Bar/Dining on various other review sites.

Super friendly staff, epic views. The entire restaurant rotates once every hour and a half so you can get views of the entire city while you have your meal. really good seats and it's spaced out properly. highly recommend it and would go again!

Beautiful views, beautiful cocktails and lovely staff. The food and drinks are expensive, but worth it for a special place. Arrive just before the sunset so that you get views of Sydney by day and by night.

We had some drinks and some bar food at the O Bar on Sunday evening. The venue itself is spectacular. The mood and ambience were great. The food was mostly good, we ordered the tapas stand with the Fois Gras Parfait, Pork Belly and Katsu Cod. We were still a bit peckish and ended up ordering some polenta fritters and chicken drumsticks. The chicken and pork were fine but the rest was exceptional. I especially loved the smokey hummus. The cocktails were fine but I would probably just order a glass of champagne or something next time. The best cocktail was probably the gold leaf espresso martini but at $38 it's a bit of a treat. The service wasn't terrible but I wouldn't say that it was amazing either. The server probably did her job (we got our drinks in a reasonable time etc.) but she didn't do anything more than that and considering there is a 10% Sunday surcharge and an 'optional' 7.5% tip (included on the bill) we were expecting more. At the end of the evening when we were ready to leave the server struck up a conversation with another customer about 2 tables away from us and left us waiting for quite a long time. She was in an in-depth conversation that didn't seem like it was wrapping up at all. We tried to make eye contact with her on at least 3 occasions but she either didn't see us or ignored us I am not sure. We ended up having to stand up at the table, another member of staff saw us and had to interrupt her conversation to let her know that we were waiting to leave. As a result of the average customer service we removed the tip from the bill. Given the venue was so lovely and everything else was good I would prefer to treat this as a bit of a blip rather than judge the whole evening and venue on this incident alone.

Came for a family dinner. It was obviously great. The view is stunning, to be expected. The food was really good too and the staff was lovely. We had a great time. Sadly my photos are too dark not doing any justice :/

Had a delicious meal, service was great, views and venue were awesome. Only thing I would ask to change would be the music, would prefer more easy listening not loud dance music

We have made it a habit to bring our parents to Obar each visit to Sydney. They love the whole experience the Staff are so attentive and food just amazing. I'd recommend the Passionfruit Soufflé even if your not a desert person.

Wonderful, friendly service! The kitchen staff were able to alter meals to meet my dietary requirements and did so without compromising on flavour or quality. The staff went above and beyond to make me and my partner's anniversary dinner extra special! I will certainly be returning to O Bar and Dining again in the future.

I’ve dined at O Bar twice in the last six months, and both times have been horribly let down by the food and by the service. When last dining there on Mother’s Day, I ordered the slow cooked beef cheek and received a bone dry, inedible rock. The waiter then had the temerity to argue with me, telling me that I “didn’t understand“ the cooking process, when it was clear that the meat had been glazed and reheated (drying out the product). Dessert was a similar disappointment, with the nitro merengue arriving without the signature dry ice effect (when other tables received the full ceremony). To then add an automatic gratuity to the ($500) bill was the final straw. Never, ever again.

One of the girl who was wearing black one shoulder mini dress was very angry when we ordered some drinks. She told me there’s no such thing in the bar but we pointed out in the menu. She has been very ignorant and her expressions were very mad. I am not too sure why but it made my friends in a o Bar experience really bad. Apart from her everything was good.

The good first: it’s really a swanky place with gorgeous views of the city and an amazing revolving floor. Service was really impeccable, both friendly, efficient and professional. The bad: I may have had a bad pick but the contents of the plates weren’t as flawless. The nibble bread and spread featured slightly charred bread, and I did not find anything spectacular about the yellowfin tuna - which was fresh and nicely cut, or the wagyu beef main. The ugly: the miso eggplant felt like a salt pot even though we expected it to be on the salty side. My wife had better luck with seared scallops and lamb. The restaurant was gracious enough to take a few items we did not like from the bill and to add a moscato and truffles as a compliment, which is absolutely commendable. But at that price point I can’t help but feel a bit disappointed that the kitchen didn’t deliver to perfection.

Ate here on Thursday evening. I have lived in Sydney nearly my whole life and this restaurant wasn't on my radar. I wish i had encountered this earlier. The staff carried themselves very professionally which added to the overall experience. I ate the chicken with caviar. The sauce was big hitter the carried this entree. For the main i ate the Murry cod because i craving it from the week before when it was cooked in Master Chef. It was such a thick fillet that was cooked perfectly. So soft. For dessert i ate the truffle chocolate tart with coffee. All the elements in this dish complemented eachother. Everyone else i ate with was super impressed with their dishes. The tropical dessert delivery was unforgettable. If i had to share my constructive criticism, it would be that i forgot to say 2004 called and they wanted their decor back... however when you come here, you shouldn't be focusing on the decor. The spectacular rotating view steals the show.
