Our experience was very positive.
With dining in extreme weather, our waitress ensured our water was constantly filled, and assisted in replacing our alcoholic beverages when they were delivered warm.
We had my daughters 16th dinner here, can not fault one thing, food came out fast, hosts were attentive.
The place is stunning, even though it was busy we could still here ourselves having conversation.
Amazing night to remember
This place always amazes’ The hottest night and you provided misty of water to cool is down! This is my 3rd time here and I love everything about the place! Thank you!!!
Great food and service
From the service to the quality and presentation of the food/ drinks was amazing.
Will definitely be a regular place for us.
Spectacular food, drinks and service. Always a joy to return and immerse yourself in a different world. Staff are extremely responsive despite the hustle and bustle of this very popular venue. Food and drinks are always top quality!
Service was extremely slow. I booked a table for 8.15, and wasn’t even sat down until 8.23. Food wasn’t served until 8.57. The food was absolutely disappointing and overpriced.

We really would like for you to visit us again and please get in touch so we can make it up to you. Warm Regards, Catherine, Venue Manager. Venue Manager
Good food and atmosphere, although the kitchen closed only 30 minds after we were seated which is quite odd.
Fun drinks and an opportunity to explore the gardens after dinner.
Perfect ambience and excellent food. The service was expectional.

The Grounds is awesome, they definitely put a lot of thought into the themed decor.
The Potting shed - we were greeted and quickly shown our seats. The person who took our order mixed up the order - did not get the Margarita, and ordered the Arancini balls for adults when we wanted to order the kids menu. It was quickly taken care of , appreciate that.
Hi Sandra, Thank you for you kind words regarding your experience at the Potting Shed. I am sorry to hear about the slight mix up with your order but am glad it was all sorted out in the end We hope you come back to dine with us again soon Kind Regards, Catherine Venue Manager

Hi Michelle, Thank you so much for leaving such a great review! We love to hear that our venue is being loved as much as we love it! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kind Regards, Sarah-Floor Manager
The ambience at the potting shed was really nice, we were able to take some beautiful photos. We were able to chat away without trying to yell over loud noises.
The food ordered was lovely. There wasn’t a huge variety to choose from however also limited drinks however what was available was very nice.
We waited a long time to be served to have our orders taken and then a long time to get even water which was disappointing we even had difficulty finding anyone so we could pay our bill.
Would definitely come back to the grounds as we have always loved them not sure if we will go back to the potting shed

Always good dining at The Potting Shed. We had few changes with our group booking and the manager on shift was accommodating and able to assist us with group. Great food. Great atmosphere to dine in. Happy customer.

Went during the Cinderella display. Great atmosphere. Love the design of the potting shed. Had the lamb shank and it was delicious and reasonably priced. Will go back again

Hi Lars! Thank you so much for your great review. We're so glad you enjoyed your experience dining with us. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Sarah-Floor Manager
A surprise dinner for my friends 50th started with naughty 'Bippity Bobbity boo's' (add gin or vodka), delicious scrolled herb bread, mussels in a tomato and olive sauce and finished with sticky date and pear pudding, yum! The Cinderella themed venue was a throw back to childhood, with all things pretty and sparkly - flowers, lights, Cinderellas shoe, a sparkly carriage all backed with great music. The staff were friendly, engaged and finished the night by reminding us to not leave without take our shoe - cute!
Hi Cindy! I'm so glad to hear you had such a memorable experience with us at The Potting Shed! We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Sarah- Floor Manager
The braised beef rib to share was terribly dry. I could throw it at someone and it would knock them out. Prawn taco was in bao buns instead of taco wraps. Let's not call this tacos. What pulled everything up was the cocktails, dessert and muscles.
Hi Salina, Thank you for taking the time to share your honest feedback. I am so sorry to hear that you were let down by our menu selection. We are glad that you enjoyed the cocktails, dessert and mussels,however. We do change our menu seasonally, so we would love to have you back for the experience we pride ourselves on. We really hope to have you back in the near future. Warmest, Catherine, Venue Manager.
Best date spot in Sydney! Loved the swing chair we sat on! 10/10 experience! All the food were nice but we would have loved a pasta option, or sweet potato fries.
Hi there, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such an amazing review! We're so glad to hear that you had such an amazing date night experience with us and will definitely pass your menu feedback onto the appropriate team. Our menu does change seasonally so be sure to check out the new menu coming soon. We look forward to welcoming you back! Kind Regards, Sarah-floor manager
Food order got lost so took forever to get our main course. Drinks arrived after the entree which is very annoying when you personally, can’t eat and drink at the same time. Main reason I went was for a Cinderella pumpkin cake which was sold out... doesn’t say anywhere throughout the booking process that this dessert could sell out and you needed to preorder it online to guarantee you got one.
Only reason I gave 2 stars under ‘service’ instead of 1 was because one of the staff members (Cat) was absolutely lovely and did every thing she could to rebook us and make sure we got the dessert we were after the next time we come, and provided us with a free dessert as an apology for our crazy long wait for our main course without us complaining or causing a scene.
Hi Amie, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I'm so sorry to hear that your experience was less than brilliant. I am really pleased to hear that our Venue Manager, Cat was able to make sure you were looked after. We really look forward to having you back and giving us another opportunity to providing you with an experience we customer pride ourselves on. Kind Regards, Sarah- Floor Manager
Booked this night out with friends. Due to events the various spaces were closed off without notice so we didn’t get a chance to explore the Cinderella exhibit. Service was also incredibly slow and we were advised there was plenty of a dessert only to be told at the end they had sold out. Was a disappointing first experience for somewhere that is reccomended.
Hi Maree, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I am so sorry that on this occasion the lane way was unavailable for your viewing. In order for us to remain Covid safe we unfortunately do need to limit the people in the lane ways. However on your next visit I would love to personally show you through. I would love to learn more about the confusion around your dessert if you would like to get in touch so I can further investigate the issue. Kindest Sarah- Floor Manager
Table was ready at time booked, relevant COVID obligations followed and service was fantastic.
Hi Claudia, Thank you for dining in at The Potting Shed, we are pleased to know that you had a fantastic evening and hope to see you again very soon. Kind Regards Catherine, Venue Manager.
