This ensures that a tender, succulent, flavour cut comes off the grill every time.
At Meat District Co, the hanging cured meats, fall off the bone ribs and fresh made bread will leave nothing to be desired.

Amazing food! Best steak and ribs we have ever had. We ordered rib eye and sirloin and ribs combo but were brought to rib eyes, although the wrong items were brought it’s all about how they deal with the situation and they couldn’t have fixed it or apologised any better. My partner kept the rib eye and was then brought the ribs later along with extra fries to say sorry! Will be back when in Sydney again for sure! Amazing guys!

We had a really lovely time at Meat District Co, a restaurant that is very reasonably priced for the part of Sydney it's in! We had some nice views out into the harbour, I particularly enjoyed the medallion steaks with a red wine chilli jus, this was a really unique sauce that was paired with delicious meat.

Magnificent ribs and friendly service. A waitress tied bibs on us but it wasn’t enough to save my shirt.

Venue is a short walk from my workplace and we were seated immediately once walked in. Table of 4 reserved for us ladies and we made it in time prior to 6pm for happy hour cocktails of $9 each! Yummilicious!

Food was delicious. Due to the promo, we each ordered a combo half rack ribs and sirloin. The medium rare sirloin I had was heavenly and melts in your mouth. We managed to try all the available desserts as well!

A happy wonderful evening for our catch up with excellent customer service from the staff, awesome food and amazing price.

Went to Meat District for our kid birthday. Mixed impression. Service was excellent, staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful but unintrusive. Some foods were also good, like fries and onion rings (hard to fail :)), seared barramundi, and rocket salad with peanuts was excellent. But others were far from expectation. Cured meat platter was unimpressive - mortadella, sopressa quite ordinary; prosciutto was definitely sliced hours before serving and left on air so it dried, hardened, and even curled; only basturma-type cured beef was good. Medallion steak was cooked well and yummy except the sides were very bitter as if they were burnt although didnt look like it. Most disappointing were beef brisket burger (most expensive on menu!) and pulled pork sandwich: both completely lacked salt but were as sweet as desert! We speculated the chef might have confused salt with sugar.
We did not complain cos didnt want to spoil birthday and not to upset the staff who wasnt at fault for what their chef made. Besides, it was half-price deal so, apparently, it may have been fair to get only about half food decent :).

We arrived 15 mins earlier but were seated on our table in no time. It was a nice table on the second floor and was perfect to escape the chilly weather outside. We ordered our drinks, a shared main followed by desserts. The staff were very efficient and the wait times were reasonable. Food was very good and desserts were even better. Totally enjoyed my experience and highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

No questions, just get the ribs!! Absolutely beautiful, loads of meat and sauce on them! I got the ribs and sirlion combo which was a lot of food (as you would imagine) but definitely worth it, the steak was lovely and complimented by the garlic sauce - creamy and not too garlicy even for a garlic lover. The prices were also very reasonable for good food, we will be returning in the future.

My boyfriend and I had a great dining experience at Meat District Co last night. The food portion and taste was absolutely beautiful. We had sweet potato fries, rib eye and wings and rib combo, the food definitely wins my heart. We not only have the half price deal from first table, also we have the happy hour drink. The catering services were really good! I will definitely go back to eat there again! Highly recommend!

Great dining experience. We all got the steak and ribs combo. Steak was really great and perfectly cooked. The pork ribs were well flavoured but slightly overcooked/chewy. Was expecting them to fall off the bone. Still lovely though and would definitely go back.

Nice place for families. Staff are friendly but will come and ask if you’re ready quite often so it’s a bit rushed, but the atmosphere is nice and the food is pretty delicious. The steaks could use a bit more flavour (it was a little overcooked), but the entrees were incredible. I recommend the watermelon salad and fries in particular.

When i went to other restaurants through first table i was not made to feel like i booked discounted table thru first table. Here i did. Table location wasn't good and they charged full and had to rectify and then asked for the voucher. Burger was not bad. Just average burger. So will not go back half price or full price.

Great family night with first tables. We got the share meat platter with the rack of beef and pork, steak, hamburger with chips and a side salad. The boys really enjoyed their meal and loved the pork ribs. My favourite was the beef ribs and the hamburger was juicy and tasty. Highly recommended.

We sat on the level above overlooking the harbour. It's beautiful view. Ribs and chicken wings are beautiful and taste great. Steak aren't great. Ordered medium but came out overcooked. Considering it's a meat restaurant this shouldn't have happened.

Good portion and good price . Thanks Frist table. The sirlion beef is tasty, we also like crocodile burger. The kangaroo steak is ok. The pork ribs is the less good in the selection we had in my taste.
We came before 6pm and we could get happy hours drinks of 5$ for beers and 9$ for cocktails which was good.
However, the service is average. The waitresse was not very smiling and I needed to go to the bar for the payment.

Food was delicious and presentable. Service started off well and we were shown a nice spot upstairs with a view over the harbour. Only minor feedback was that the waitress presented the bill with the full price without checking to see whether this was a First Table booking. Not sure if this was intentional or not, but would be good if staff were across the details as it wasn't all that busy that night. Otherwise, she corrected the fault immediately so no harm done.

We ordered the pork and beef ribs. Beef ribs were superb! So tender! Pork ribs were a little dry but still enjoyable. Dessert was enjoyable too - chocolate dome maybe a little too sweet.
We sat on the second floor with views of the water. No AC means it can get a little stuffy. Overall a good night.

Food was good, my only thought was ribs basting/sauce can be different taste between pork ribs and beef ribs, more savory/spicy for example on pork and more sweeter on beef for example.
And talking about beef ribs, maybe it need to Sous vide cook a little longer so it can be fall off the bones. It was still have resistant on a bite and sinew at the back of the bones, can be eliminate, I know for fact they left it intake because of presentation purposes to hold them together.

Meat District Co was an amazing experience. We arrived just before 6 so got to enjoy a couple of the happy hour cocktails alongside our meal. For mains we had the ribs & wings combo, the meat was so tender that it just fell off the bone, and glazed with a sweet bbq sauce. And then finished with the chocolate dome, the dessert tasted so good, but was so light so it was the perfect end to a perfect meal.

The food wasn't very good. While my partner and I ordered a burger and chicken hook respectively, and my dish, in particular, is not exactly what you'd go to some place called 'Meat District' for, it was definitely underwhelming. The glasses that they brought out with our drinks were dirty and had what looked like strawberry seeds, or some other small bits stuck on the inside of the glass.
I would, however, recommend the chips and the truffle mash, both of which were excellent.
Overall Meat District Co seems a bit more like a nicer type pub.
