Awesome food - awesome staff - attention to detail - a complete treat
Was a great night out. Food wonderful, wine great. Even with problems at the sister restaurant, they catered for everyone wonderfully.
Looking forward to returning!
If you like Japanese food you will love Rookie as all the food has a Japanese fusion to it.
All cooked perfectly and flavours were well balanced.
I was looking for a fine dinning experience... seems like the owners have done a huge effort to have a nice place but the service was ver poor, the waitress pushed us to order within 5 minutes of sitting at the table, cleaned everything quickly, didn't offer coffee or tea and brought the bill when I still had wine... two minutes after she came with the efptos machine and asked us to pay. We were in shock... there were more tables and it was only 9:25... we arrived at 8pm. I sent an email on Monday but never received am answer.
Food was good. The dessert was amazing!
Great venue excellent service and staff beautiful food a very pleasant evening
Love the quality of the food and the amazing taste. So much thinking and work go behind all the textures and tastes. Well done. Loved it.
Food was amazing!! Service was lovely, friendly and very accommodating to a specific order our table had.
Definatly will return again!
Great little up-market foodie restaurant located in a redesigned older house on a main street in Wollongong. We had the tasting menu which was well thought out and and inspired by Asian flavours. Well balanced flavours but a few of the meats were over cooked (especially the pork-belly). Flawless service by the wait-staff who were able to recommend a cocktail I liked after I couldn't find one to my liking on their existing cocktail menu.
The Restaurant really needs some work its very tired.
The noise level needs to be dealt with with some sound absorption to quieten it down.
The toilets are really bad for a restaurant of this standard I would class them along with a old service station.
Waitress was very attentive and service was excellent.
The food was of a very high standard we had the smaller of the two share degustation quite frankly we just could eat that much food.
I would be reducing quantity of food and put on the table at a lower price.
I wont be rushing back personally.
I’ve frequented your other restaurant and find it my favourite up market restaurant in Wollongong.
The food was great and wind even better. Digest strongly that waitress dressed in black T shirt and black jeans get her shoes cleaned or gets some new shoes. They looked very dirty and out of place. I have always admired the cleanliness of your staff uniform till we saw her dress and dirty shoes.
Table we were allocated was right next to bar. Very noisyWe should have asked to be moved as other better tables were available.
Had the Feed Me 1 and it was great. I really enjoyed the food and thought it was good value for the number of courses.
Service was very good, Nathan was on the ball!
Food was beautiful, and catered for gluten free very well.
The room was a bit cold, I wish there had been candles on the tables to create a bit more atmosphere though.
We chose the ‘feed me’ option. The dishes were generally well prepared and presented but not exceptional. As a set menu some of the flavours of the courses did not come through well, or necessarily ‘mesh’ with other courses. However, service was attentive but also little rushed on the course explanations. Overall, another great night out at Rookie, but not necessarily at its best.
food was very good . taste and variety was good.little over priced.
We were blindsighted a little by the Mother's Day set menu, and the cost of that, but the food was top-class, a great amount, and the waitstaff was brilliant.
Will definitely come again!
Couldn’t fault the service, starters and desserts 👌🏻
I definitely recommend this restaurant and please try the FEED ME 1 or 2, worth of money and foods are delicious!
Great fine dining in Wollongong. I have been there many times and never disappointed!
This place was SUCH a nice surprise! The menu felt really special, the food was delicious, and the overall feeling in the space made it feel like a really special night out. They were great with catering to both of our dietary needs - one vegan, one celiac - and it just made it all feel quite safe and comfortable.
We had the best meal and will definitely be back. Great service without being over the top at all.
Great dinner. Loved the home made pickles and flatbread. The prawn ravioli was a stand out.
Haven't been to Rookie for a long time and realised what I have been missing!
The food was faultless and the service was first class. Quality produce, perfectly cooked and presented. The prawn ravioli was a stand out.
Looking forward to going back.
Really love the food here. Everything was well presented. A feast for they eyes. Wonderful balance of flavours too. Even the cocktails were a delight
Food and service were average at best.
We had to ask to order our drinks.
The cocktail was horrible.
Food was under seasoned.
Presentation was not great.
Hopefully it was just a bad night
It was our first time visiting the restaurant. We had a lovely time and were very pleased with the service and food.
We shall return no doubt.
Our night at Rookie was, as always, outstanding. Superb service and sublime food (the prawn raviloi in chilli butter and Pork Belly in 12-month masterstock were standouts, but the whole 11 courses were a sensory delight). It was great to see the space pumping with a lot of happy people enjoying what we think is the best food to be had in Wollongong. Rookie continues to be our favourite place to eat when we really want make our hearts and bellies as happy as they can be.
Wonderful atmosphere with excellent service and interesting food.
Main was nicely cooked and presented, though on the small side. Need to order vegetables separately - we needed these to fill the meal out. The highlight for us was the desert, very nice and a good portion. We were surprised there was no tea and coffee on offer to finish the meal. Service was efficient.
Each time we visit Rookie the food is just so tasty and beautiful. Service was spot on and it is these things that keep us wanting to come back.
Great place good service could do with a change in side
Food was excellent, service was impeccable (waiters were knowledgeable, friendly and kind) all in a cool old heritage house.
Different food good quality and tasty. Service is outstanding. A little expensive
The service from the two waiters/waitress were exceptional!! Their service would be the reason I would go back!! Food was delish. Overall a great experience. First time eating there aswell.
The entire experience was great, the service and food was amazing I had a great time will definitely go back.
Excellent Asian inspired dishes. Feed me had plenty of food. Nice wine list.
Well presented dishes. Wonderful flavours. Service excellent.
Wine per glass was not cheap and not very generous.
Amazing food. Absolutely loved the whole experience!
Anniversary dinner. Great service
Favorite Restaurant in Wollongong, lovely food. Highly recommend.
