Lunch Mon-Fri noon-3pm
Dinner Mon-Sat 6pm-11pm
It's the exceptional steakhouse that lays claim to having some of the finest seafood in town. But, then, Rockpool Bar & Grill is the exception to most rules. Somewhere with such a tight lock on the business-lunch crowd has no right being this glamorous, all Deco of line and soaring of column. Anywhere with a cellar so dazzling has no business having a superb cocktail bar. And how is it that a menu so sprawling, in the American grill tradition, is executed with such consistent clarity? Meaty, buttery slices of abalone done meunière-style might compete with the steaks anywhere else, but here, where the ageing and wood-grilling of Australia's best beef is raised to art, there's no chance. Service responds well to challenges, and sharing is the way to profit, so place your faith in your waiter and carve your way through the menu (with no skimping on the excellent sides), right through to the warm blackberry and almond pudding to close.
