View is beautiful. Good space but menu weird. The quality of food is good but very strange combos. Fish roll was good. Not a lot to choose from on menu, think menu needs a re think. For tourists they will go to eat and drink and enjoy the view but if they want locals during the week menu needs to be improved. We liked the Buratta Salad but the pesto killed it. The Egg plant was awful could not eat. Hope you take the reviews and change it up. Lovely staff trying very hard. See less

We had lunch and cocktails over the weekend. 32 degrees, no wind and the water was crystal clear below. Sat on the leather lounges out the front - superb location! Woodfired bread with dips we highly recommend and the prawns were extremely flavoursome. Thank you for a wonderful experience. See less

The wood fired bread and smaller tasting plates are very delicious. Dessert was bomb. Service. Lacking. You have to ask for water and work hard to get attention to order a drink. We ordered 2 different bottles of wine out of their small selection, and neither was refrigerated. Our main dishes came out before we were given fresh plates, so went a bit cold. Raised the cold food and got treated to a complimentary round of drinks. Love the remodel, however, very loud acoustics, it's hard to talk across a table of 6. Overall, food was great but for the premium vibe it's going for it needs some work on service. Would give it another chance again once they have worked through the opening kinks. See less

Went with colleagues for Christmas lunch. Food was all delicious especially the wood fired bread and Romero dip. Service was great when we could get their attention which took a while at times. Highly recommend. See less

We came here for lunch, when you have seafood platers els where for the same price which is triple the size I wouldn’t bother coming here! Really small serving and very over priced. Here some photos of the differences See less

The vibe is nice and I always want to see new businesses thrive but 140 dollars for a seafood platter which consisted of 6 prawns, 6 oysters, 3 scallops, 3 sashimi type salads, bread and dip? Did the chefs go and catch the crustaceans themselves? or was the vinaigrette dressing imported from the finest restaurants in France? - I literally don't know what I paid for. Cocktails are also 20 dollars a pop. I enjoy places where I get value for the money I spend - bar tropic was not for me. See less

My partner and I came here for a night out, and to say that the food and service was amazing is an understatement. I am not sure what the other reviewers have said, but I get the sense that some people expect service staff to be at their beck and call (which is clearly not the ordinary course of things). The staff were excellent, both attentive and knowledgable. Executive Chef Poulard's menu is fantastic, where he simply lets the food speak for itself. We went for dinner, but I suspect on a nice and warm sunny day, sitting on the deck overlooking Manly will be a great experience. Can't wait to go back with the kids. See less

This place is straight up dog trash and basically committed a robbery by way of eggplant. The service is the worst I have ever experienced anywhere on the northern beaches. Thank god for the one girl who knew what she was doing and even had to take responsibility for the ineptitude of her coworkers. The food is a straight up crime. Don’t order the eggplant unless you are happy being served one tiny slither covered in a bag of coles 2$ rocket, for the mere price of 28$. Every meal is tiny and a rip off. The staff will forget your orders or even better send them to the wrong table. Do not go here and instead just mourn what has been lost from wharfy by them putting in this mess. See less

Very overpriced. Needs a lot of work for the “premium dining experience”. Food wasn’t amazing which you would expect for the prices. Group I was with had seafood platter for $140 and would probably not recommend as size is quite small. See less

Really sad what they did to wharf bar. I get its new but service was an absolute mess and not friendly. Food was the big letdown, it was so bland and lacking, we couldn't understand how they were going for a new look dining experience but served that. I hope they re-group and come up with different experiences. Stars were for the view. See less
