The special of the day, mussels in a chilli sauce, were exceptional. The young English waiter we had was polite, attentive and professional. A little noisy during the lunchtime rush hour but that did not substantially detract from an overall excellent experience.

We stayed in Sydney for 12 days and we ate either breakfast, lunch or dinner here everyday, sometimes even twice in the one day! Great staff, amazing food and coffee, we will be back.

The food and service was outstanding! It was so worth it, the only thing is the hallway is too narrow so whenever people were trying to pass behind my chair, most of the time they unpurposely hit my chair.

Food is incredible, so fresh and full of flavour. I love the feel of the space. Warm and intimate despite its size. My only issue was the price. Two salads and a bottle of sparkling water for almost $65. Not a cheap lunch at all. Bit disappointing when the salads are $12 to take away.

Really great place. Diverse menu but a bit hard to understand. Had to Google a lot of random food items. Quite pricy but at least the food was delicious.

Quite disappointed with the famed Grounds. Despite the lovely décor, our table was squishy and there was an absolute din inside. For the price, the food was mediocre. My haricot beans on crumpet managed to be both chilli and bland, and I didn't feel full because the portion was so small; my friend's well done steak was completely dry. The food took ages to come too.

Great location. When you first arrive to the restaurant you walk up to a service window and there are a few tables located outside. It’s part of a shopping mall so one might be hesitant at first however, once you step inside it’s a fantastic ambiance! I would absolutely recommend going here! Food is delicious and they have great cocktails.

Elegant ambience, with nice attention to service from staff. It was very busy so service as lower than I've experienced in the past but still very professional. Food was great, as always.

I loved everything about my first visit to The Grounds of the City. Having given up going to the Grounds of Alexandria because it's sooo crowded, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to book a table for 6 easily online and for a 5.30pm Friday night time-slot. We were given a beautifully decorated and comfortable nook which made for easy chatting in a group of 6. The wine was served in decent sized glasses - none of this tiny dribble in the bottom of a tankard you can be duped with in some places. Our next engagement was at 7pm so the service must have been speedy because we made it on time. The front of house manager and our waiters were all extremely friendly despite being run off their feet and for a cafe paying city rents, the prices were reasonable. I liked being asked how I wanted my burger meat cooked 'cause I hate eating pink mince. $50 covered 2 glasses of wine, a burger with chips and salad plus a tip. The cost of sharing a meal with friends I've known for decades - a price beyond rubies.

Food was overpriced and definitely not value for money. I had the lobster brioche buns for $20+.
I think there was a crumb of a lobster in the whole meal.

Met some friends for lunch, the food was fresh and tasty and the service was overall good. It was very noisy as there were so many people packed in to a small area. The tables are very close together and it was difficult to talk to each other and have a private conversation.

Great that we could book a table as I had been faced with a long waits on previous attempts to visits. Atmosphere was great busy noisy and staff very pleasant. Food was nice but nothing special. I didn't expect for it to be cheap but I guess for the price I would have expected more. Unfortunately not a lot of options on a Sunday morning in the the CBD.

Usually really enjoyable but this time I feel they cut a few corners and it wasn’t the same experience. Eg: ice coffee was about 3 small plain water ice cubes, shot of coffee and the milk. Usually served like the pic in the menu and not plain ice cubes. No attention to presentation of the food which was disappointing and unlike previous ‘Grounds’ experiences. No busier than usual so I can’t even put that down as a possible excuse. Maybe becoming complacent with their position in the marketplace (?)
Good ambiance though and our guest visiting from overseas enjoyed it as he had no other experience there to compare it to.

Love the space and the service. The staffs are really friendly and aways ready to help us any time. The food was great but need more variety in my opinion. But overall, it was a great experience and would love to go back there.

First time patron; the design of the Grounds is welcoming, a real talking peice, and the food was wonderful. It arrived quickly, was super fresh and delicious. Yet, moreover the service was exceptional; friendly, accommodating, attentive from the moment of arrival, throughout our breakfast experience. Thankyou for making the start of our Sydney getaway memorable.

Food wasn’t great. I didn’t enjoy my juice it tasted too sweet - not like a fresh juice. Ordered sparkling water but only finished a glass of it before they took away the lid so we paid for a whole bottle. Overall value wasn’t worth the price.

Service was great - came in for breakfast and ended up having less time to eat than planned and had to leave for an early meeting. The gentleman who served us was able to fast track the order to the kitchen and food was delivered in minutes. Very grateful, and eggs and coffee were delicious!

Really did not appreciate the way we were treated at the door. I made a booking for 10.30am, but when I went to the window to advise the gentlemen, he said please stand aside. He did not even say hi or anything or smile. It was 10.45 a lady came out calling Annie, I thought she was calling out my name, so I went up to confirm she gave me the up and down look and disregarded me and did not even give me a response. She was very rude.

I was not impressed with my breakfast. I ordered avocado and they literally just cut 1/2 an avocado left the skin on. I could do that at home. I had to scoop out the avocado at a well known cafe.

I will definitely not return to this cafe. I was so happy with the service at Alexandria, but the city cafe the staff think so highly of themselves.

I have been to The Grounds a few times, but this time it was for my sisters birthday. It was such a nice surprise when they presented her with a mini birthday cake, which was delicious. A very thoughtful gesture.

The place is lively and vibrant. We had the beef and the lamb and both were great. Just one thing to note, people there do talk so loudly that if you want a cosy quiet place it may not serve your purpose. But it's a good place for any celebrations with friends.

The food was great but the service was not good. The hostess seems confused when we go there and told us to wait because she was in the middle of something. Our waitress was nice but she dropped my husbands glass as she approached the table. She was very apologetic about it but then it took her a long time to bring me a drink and my husband and new glass. Then all of a sudden she was gone. We ordered another drink that did not show up. It’s a shame because the food was great but we felt like they did not take any pride in the service they provide.
