Timeout 2016 Review

“The line between restaurant and bar has gone from a little fuzzy to indistinct, and nowhere is this more so than at Brent Savage and Nick Hildebrandt’s Potts Point wine bar and restaurant, Monopole. You could pop in for a cheeky drink and end up eating the full tasting menu.” 4 Stars. Emily Lloyd Tait

The Sun-Herald – Oct 2013

“Given Monopole won Wine List of the Year at the 2014 Good Food Guide Awards, we’re keen to give it the once over. It’s mammoth, with more than 500 by the bottle and 30 by the glass or carafe.” Georgia Waters

“Monopole is another win for inner Sydney. Go for the wine, but stay for the food. It’ll do you good.” Elizabeth Meryment

“Hildebrandt has a cellar-deep store of wine knowledge and a recall for things he and his customers have drunk that sometimes borders on the disturbing. His palate (and, perhaps as importantly, his faith in his own judgement) places him well ahead of the curve, and new producers, regions of interest and stylistic developments show up on his lists months, sometimes years, ahead of the competition.” Pat Nourse

“The collars have been set loose, the ties are askew, the casual pants are on and the playlist is officially bringing the funk at the new restaurant and wine bar from the Bentley guys. 4 Stars.” Myffy Rigby

SMH Good Food – Jan 2013

“Monopole is a gorgeous thing, a classy, wine bar with an intriguing dichotomy at its heart – an emphasis on both natural wine of minimal intervention and cleverly manipulated food. Together, they make supposedly casual dining a serious proposition.” Terry Durack
