We love wine did not get to travel to the southern part of Australia to tour any vineyards so a Penfolds wine dinner ...on beautiful Sydney Harbor was the perfect choice. We upgraded to Gold window seating which I highly recommend. We embarked at Kings St wharf boat pulled in at 7:30 as instructed and somehow missed the 6:30 champagne appetizer intro that people who boarded earlier did, but were taken to our table and quickly given champagne. The service was excellent and the courses all delish, well sized and nicely paired with Penfolds wines. ...we were full at the end! We've done may similar dinners and this one was quite good. Live music entertained us as we cruised in the harbor enjoying the birds and city lights. Highly recommend!

I was very concerned that this would be a touristy version of a nice dinner experience. And a lot was at stake as it was my best friend's 50th Birthday. I am pleased to say that this was a very special night. It started with a welcoming to the top deck with trays of champagne and delicious passed appetizers. We had the chance to take pictures, have a toast and enjoy Sydney Harbor. The service was top notch. Definitely get a guaranteed window seat! The food was delicious the wine pairings excellent. We were not rushed and chose to stay on an extra half hour and disembark in Darling Harbor instead of Circular Quay. It was well worth the cost and made a great memory for all of us.

The food was wonderful, although when we got the filet mignon that was cut in half, we did think they were being cheap. The biggest disappointment was that we were stuck inside at the table for 90 of the time. Consequently, we never got to enjoy the sunset or even views of the harbor, except thru the windows next to our table.

WOW the food was super great as was the service. The view of the opera house, harbour bridge and city was amazing! It was an open bar however my husband asked for a beer when we sat done and they said well we are serving a different wine with each course. My husband he a beer man not much of a wine drinker but he drank what was offered. Giving the price you pay for an open bar I think they should have brought him his beer and still served the wine I don't think it should have been one or the other. My only real disappointment was I paid extra for a guaranteed window seat and our group was so small everyone had a window seat. I would think the tour company would let you know that and refund back the difference but I wasn't given that option.
It was a great meal and would have been more exciting I think with a full cruise.

Beautiful trip, great food and friendly warm staff. My only complaint was that the live music was a little loud...
