Steersons, King St Wharf, Sydney CBD

✦ Many years ago I went to Steersons at King st Wharf. I remember the food we had at this steak house was amazing. Probably the best steak I've had at that time and the entrees an explosion of new taste sensations.

✦ I went there again looking for that same experience, however it wasn't as great as I expected.

✦ Perhaps it has been me that has changed, perhaps my tastes have evolved over the years, or perhaps my memories fail me as a I get older, but whatever the reason, this visit didn't bring me the same highs

✦ Service was a hit and miss with attentiveness mixed with wrong orders and overcharging.

✦ Nice views over King St Wharf

Seared Scallops with butternut squash, chestnut & bacon crumble - $22.90 - for our entree we had the scallops. Lightly seared on top of a slice of pumpkin with a cauliflower foam. The bacon crumbs provided the seasoning. The flavours all went well together but it was just average to me.

Salt & Pepper Calamari with lemon aioli - $18.90 - as you can see, the number of calamari pieces here are quite pitiful. The pieces themselves had the crumbing flaking off as you cut them and the seasoning used was much to salty. Has nothing on Golden century or any other Asian Salt and Pepper dish.

Angus Rump (MSA) 150 Day Grain Fed 300g - $29.90 (peppercorn sauce +$3.50).  The cheaper of the two steaks we had. Lovely char marks, but we ordered medium and this was somewhat overdone. Not what you would be expecting from a restaurant specialising in steak!

Rib-Eye (MSA) 300g 38.90 -  Pasture fed steak, again ordered medium but this time was OK (except around the edges where the steak is naturally thinner). The fattier of the two steak cuts which meant it was a bit more juicy.
