We had a booking for 6.15pm but because we were going to a concert at the Town Hall we asked when we arrived if we could be admitted earlier. No bookings were available for 6pm - our preferred time - when I booked, and no-one was in the restaurant when we entered it at about 6.05pm. If bookings commence at 6.15pm rather than the advertised time of 6pm, then the website should show this. But this is our only quibble about the restaurant. The food and service were excellent and all the food we ordered arrived in good time for us to leave at 7.30pm, which is the time that we indicated to our waitress that we wished to leave. The tables are nicely separated, it was easy to move around the restaurant, and there was no feeling of being crowded by those at adjacent tables. We have several more concerts at the Town Hall this year and will almost certainly book again at the Wilmot.

Great food and atmosphere in a beautifully dated (20/30s / 70s art deco style). Not bad value for money and personal attention by the chef. A good lunch date out !

A very pleasant place to dine. Excellent service. The food overall was very good. However my main course
was a disappointment. Described on the menu as ‘Pork Cutlet ‘ it neglected to say that it was deep fried. .
When it was presented it looked more like a dish you would expect at a RSL club. When this was brought to their attention they replaced it with another dish of my choosing.

Very poor service and food quality. In particular main course was very disappointing, dry and presentation is way below par. Service was poor, got us the wrong type of water and too lazy to get us the appropriate wine glass.

Food options were quite bland and inviting. The food itself (we ordered the lamb shank, avocado salad, rock oysters, truffle fries and sashimi platter and bread) was adequate but nothing spectacular.
The service was polite but not fantastic. They only delivered 1 menu but there were two adults and only 1 kids menu although there were 2 kids without asking and no serving cutlery for the shareable lamb platter for 2. And when asked , the wait staff were surprised that we’d ask for any of these but were polite.
Definitely not what you’d expect for a restaurant which the Wilmot claims to be.

New Management had "upgraded" the decor and price. Quality and taste of food is good and flavoursome. The dessert selection is somewhat limited as there were only 4 items. Would have liked to see the reintroduction of the set 2,3 and 4 courses. Service is exceptional and hard to fault.

The pork cutlets were dreadful. The pappardelle with lamb ragu had only a half dozen of tiny pieces of lamb as small as my pinky nail in sauce. The whole dish wasn't worth $27. The service and ambiance was good.

Expensive mediocre food. Couldn't split the bill neither in the restaurant, nor in the bar.
After the dinner we had a couple of glasses of wine in the bar - equivalent to a bottle. The manager refused to charge us the bottle price. The difference was $10 and we already spent over $400+ in the establishment at this point. It's a matter of principle.

Food was not out of the ordinary, very standard menu BUT done right.
I ordered the steak medium, arrived medium rare, did not want to make a fuss on my wife’s birthday, gave it a fair go and like i said.. even then it was done right. So i ate it.

Service was great.

Great Hotel, Stayed for 3 nights in a spacious Executive room. Lovely decor & Art Deco design. Had a meal included in the package & chose to dine on Sunday night. Only another 2 tables in the restaurant. we were presented the a la carte menu and we said we were on an included meal so they quickly whisked those away and presented us the reduced menu. it would have been nice to look at the other menu & to see if we would have liked to upgrade our dining experience, but your loss. We had the option of one course and to upgrade to 2 or 3 courses. Having had a large lunch we thought wed just have a main & dessert. I chose a crumbed pork cutlet with a fennel/apple salad & celeriac puree. It was ok, to heavy & thick on the crumb which hadn't cooked properly in places, otherwise it was just ok. Not seasoned & quite bland. My Partner chose the Vegetable lasagne which was just a tragedy! It was just a slab of thinly cut (pre-bought?) gtrilled vegetables with a vinegary taste that even though it looked as though it had been baked three times as it was quite dark around the edges it was tough & leathery to eat. accompanied with a standard Napoli sauce & a bit of cheese. No pasta, sauce or cheese through the dish to help bind, moisten or flavour the dish. We tried to eat it & share our meals but after a few bites, finished our drinks, decided to skip dessert & went & got KFC! Breakfast had been pretty ordinary too service lacklustre on all occasions. F&B department really need to lift their game as the rest of the hotel was lovely.

Please don't change the current formula - price, quality of food and service. Perfect as it is. If any of these dimensions are changed I will go somewhere else.

One of the hidden gems in the city. Excellent value for a 4-course dinner with good quality food. The service staff were friendly and very attentive. Good ambience, although I thought it was a little darker than I would have liked. The one suggestion I have if for them is to expand the dessert menu. Other than that it is a great place to have dinner with friends. I am also a member of the Primus Hotel and you get very generous discounts on top of the already reasonable price.

Unique venue, aspect looking across the foyer captivating. Remodelling, while modern, is quite sympathetic to the age of the building. Food very good, however the kitchen had trouble coping with the number of guests (including a table of 24 and two tables of 8-10). We waited a long time for our food - staff very attentive and provided an additional complimentary glass of wine and apologies. Will go again.

There were 2 or 3 things unavailable to be ordered, even though we arrived when afternoon tea started.
Staff were friendly enough but not really attentive.- took a while to order tea/ food.
Some of the sweeter items were very average, savoury items were quite tasty.

Delicious food with perfect presentation served in the art deco environment of the 1930-40's museum of the Sydney Water Board. The only drawback is the set menu.

Centrally located in Sydney, this is a lovely lunch or dinner venue. The set-price menu is good value. Our meals were tasty and we'd recommend the grilled barramundi as a main.

Service started very good, but then slowed down tremendously. It took almost an hour between course two and course three, and the restaurant wasn’t incredibly busy. Chicken in course three seemed undercooked in areas.
