Dined here for dinner whilst staying in the hotel. As expected of a 5 star hotel restaurant, the service is immaculate and attentive, and a lovely experience

I tried the braised Lamb neck with eggplant, cashew and lime relish. The meal was great, meat braised well and coming apart with just a fork, flavoursome relish and red wine jus.

Overall, would be happy to recommend to anyone staying at the Pullman or even on a specific trip to try

Had dinner there. The beef steak I ordered was not only over cooked but also over priced.  And the waitress charged us $8 for still water!!!! That was ridiculous!!!! First time in my life been charged for still water in a 5 star hotel dining place.  i would like to inform the hotel manager, If you realy want to charge your customers for water, PLEASE INFORM THE CHARGE BEFORE YOU SERVE!   Can anyone image that you've been asked to have some water, after you drink it that you have to pay for it!   I personally love to dine in hotel, I tried The Langham, Mercure, Sofitel, VR on Queen, Stamford, Crowne Plaza,  there are good and had experiences, but Pullman is absolutely the BOTTOM ONE!Update: Just found the steak picture.  It was really like $15 special steak from a small pub's happy hour meal.

Had Xmas buffet.
Staff were very friendly and attentive.
Food was not that great.
I accept that buffet food will never be as great as ordered food, however this was just bad.
I have changed this from a 2 to a 3 as I appreciate the feedback received from the Pullman.

Their lunch offering was okay. Service could be better. We had the braised pork and their burger. It was okay. The pork was very tender and cooked well. The burger wasn't the best I had but it wasn't that bad either.

Tapestry Dining does some very beautiful desserts and is a lovely high end establishment with great service. It's perfect for classy dinners or intimate dates with soft warm lighting.

Appetiser was a light affair, with fragrant chunky bread and some very delicious olive oil.

I opted for the seafood crab cake entree, which was excellently presented on a large round black plate and so delicious. There were two crab croquettes on a bed of creamy sauce  with two prawns and a fresh green salad on top. It was flavoursome, but thankfully not a large portion which meant there was room for more. I really liked this dish.

The main was a huge disappointment for me. I had the handmade cannelloni filled with mushrooms and sweet corn and some celeriac. It looked like a few grey rolls lying in hazelnut foam. The cannelloni not only didn't look appetising, it tasted horrible. Combined with the hazelnut foam, it unfortunately tasted a lot like vomit and the taste sort of rose up through your nose, and nobody who ordered it at the table got past half one of the rolls before abandoning it. Definitely do not order this. I was disappointed, because I was hoping the vegetarian option would be done well, but cannelloni are rarely made well. To be fair to the establishment, I sampled a friend's main which was the Angus beef tenderloin and it was beautifully cooked and tender. It might just be the cannelloni. For this reason, I brought the rating down to a 4.0, otherwise I would have been happy to give them a top rating.

That's because not only was the entree perfect, but the dessert was divine! I took a photo of the thinly sliced pineapple dessert, but I also sampled the other rich chocolate dessert which was also delicious and sweet. Presentation is amazing for both desserts. The pineapple dessert was a sort of tropical thick mousse on a shortbread base and topped with pineapple mousse and a ball of spun sugar, all on a bed of very thinly sliced pineapple and raisins. Everything tasted of genuine pineapple and it was a lovely way to end the evening. The spun sugar is a bit like eating a ball of sweet thread, but wrapping it in a slice of pineapple made for interesting taste and texture combination.

Overall, wonderful food at this place and the ambiance is high class and enjoyable. Just avoid the cannelloni!

I often come here to use their bathroom since I stay in girl's apartments around the area after a late night out.

Sometime I would wake up and pop by the hotel to grab a drink, or have a drink before a party. Or just go there for a date!

Nice environment, usually not packed, and can just chill chat and have a ciggy.

Food is average. Drinks are average. But environment nice :)
