No music playing in the restaurant meant there was no atmosphere. Food quality has sadly declined since our last visit. There was a function upstairs that moved into the restaurant at 9:30 so we were asked to leave and were taken through to the Press Club. Our waitress was lovely though.

I went for a work dinner so I choose the venue.
On the down side, the music was just much too loud. There was a salsa class going on and we couldn't hear each other talk and were shouting across the table, so we finished our dinner quickly and went to get desert elsewhere.
It would have been good just to have table service, for drinks at least. My work colleague and I had to keep leaving the conversation and buying drinks seperately at the bar and then waiting at the bar and I felt I had to keep apologising for little things. For work people using work credit cards, buying things seperately means later having to scan 5-6 receipts instead of one (when justifying company money spent).
On the upside, it looks nice inside, the bar staff were quite effiecient & friendly and the food was good.
Overall, I would choose elsewhere in future, particularly for work dinners.

Used to love Cloudland but things have gone down hill in the food department and focus seems all to be on the drinks (money makers). Went for a date night out, booked a table online (they couldn’t find the booking when we arrived and just pointed us to an uncleaned table). Ordered 3 share plates and one main, and we aren’t fussy eaters but these meals were underwhelming to say the least. Nothing Iike the Cloudland Italian feast of years gone by.
Bruschetta was uncoated dry toast with chopped up cherry tomatoes - no sauce, no herbs, no onion, just tomato chunks on dry toast. Meatballs were drowned in what tasted like tinned tomato paste - little flavor. And just a weird dish for lamb anyway. Fish croquettes were over cocked on the outside and sloppy inside and felt like they’d been quickly cooked from an old icy packet in the back of the freezer. In saying that - they were the nicest part of the meal.
And the snapper main - the salad tasted like it’d been wilted on the bench and made hours ago and the snapper was dry, tough and tasteless with only about a teaspoon of sauce to try and combat the dryness. Felt like a frozen fish - Aldi has better to be honest.
And like I said - we’re not fussy eaters and are just as happy with a Big Mac as we are with a good parmy or an expensive wagyu, but when you spend over $120 on a dinner like this for a rare child free night out it’s very disappointing.
We don’t think we’ll be back.
(Last time we ate there a couple of years ago it was amazing)

We were told to take a seat anywhere, even though we had a booking and happened to walk past a table reserved for us. We didn’t get table service although other tables did. The music/sub was a touch loud to talk over. Otherwise our meals were lovely.

Don’t like not having table service. For this level of dinning it’s a must. Cheapens the feeling and very hard to sit with friends when you have to get up and down to order all night

Great setting and would have been a great atmosphere had there been more diners in the restaurant.

One of our diners requested a meal without preservatives and sulphates and was told my staff that her meal of choice would be fine. Unfortunately shortly after leaving the restaurant she suffered a reaction from the food shed eaten. Not sure whether her request wasn't taken seriously or if this was a genuine mistake. She has since raised this with the restaurant and I'm not of the response, if any.

The food itself was ok. I ordered one of the gnocchi dishes which whilst nice, lacked flavour.

In all great venue, ok food, but let down by one of the dishes causing an allergic reaction that we were told wouldn't happen.

Delicious food. Far beyond what 12 people could eat on the $39.50 set menu.
The only note I would have was the calamari was a bit rubbery and the ravioli was overtaken by the amount of pesto.

My friends and I booked a table to celebrate my birthday. We decided to have the $39.50 set menu. It was a pain to organise and book the set menu before our night out, and took away some of the excitement for me. The food was nice, but there probably wasn’t enough of it for a banquet.

Half of my group had dietary issues, which - while Cloudland can cater for them- presented some problems in the set menu booking and execution. I did say they were dairy free and gluten free, but a gf pizza with proper cheese came out alongside a vegan gf pizza, which wasn’t clearly communicated to my friends.

There was waaay too much bread, not enough variety of salad/veg and only one pizza - a half and half, and that pizza was supposed to be enough for five people to share.

The Sangria, on special for $30 per jug, was like weak red cordial. Watery and tasteless- not worth it at all.

So the food is delicious, but there wasn’t quite enough. The sangria was terrible. The service was quite good, but there were a couple of miscommunications, and I had to ask for the bill to be corrected, since I’d already paid $90 as a deposit for the set menu, but it wasn’t taken off the bill.

Just order off the menu when you get there - don’t bother with the banquet. It was a pain to organise and disappointing when it came.

Definitely make a 6/6.30 reservation- you’ll get the place to yourselves and it won’t be too loud. Cloudland is a beautiful venue, and the food is really lovely. Just make sure you check your bill, ask what everything is and who it’s for, and skip the set menu!

The food was good but I feel they need to expand their menu to have some additional diverse options. The service was great as they are very friendly and accommodating. The live band was great and the music when the band was on break was great as well! Very Beautiful decor on both levels.

My friends and I came here for my birthday celebration on Thursday evening and we had the best time! We had a range of pizzas and was pleasantly surprised that they accommodated our party's dietary requirements with gluten free pizza bases. The food was really tasty and all the staff were lovely and ensured we had a great night. Watching the salsa was very entertaining too!

Ate at Cloudland on Wednesday night and was really impressed with the whole experience. The venue is stunning and totally unlike anywhere else in Brisbane, the service was outstanding the whole way through and the food was incredible. The huge (400g) steak was cooked perfectly and came with delicious grilled and roasted veg and was great value. Drinks are also well priced and there is an awesome cocktail list. The staff were great - welcoming, friendly and very attentive. I would thoroughly recommend.

Was disappointed in the meal that we had here. Ordered the pork belly which was just a roast dinner, even had gravy on it, very odd for an Italian rest and wasn't stated on the menu.
We thought it was a Restaurant with a bar but it is more a bar with a restaurant. It was far too noisy we had to shoot at each over our meal to be heard.

The main meals which was a pasta and pizza took over an hour to come mean while there was only one other table in the entire restaurant. And we had to wait almost 15minutes before the waiter/waitress approached us for drinks mean while there was a guy standing at the bar doing nothing with no one to serve.

We were seated at a table for 10 & given two menus .... then we were ignored for 30 mins our orders for food taken & then ignored the rest of the evening! We were all drinking and had to walkout of the restaurant to the bar & wait for every single drink ... no table service for drinks or lazy staff ? I’m not sure... I actually had to go and find a staff member to even ask to pay. So disappointed

Took almost an hour to get served and that was because we finally got someone's attention and asked them if we could order. Drinks took forever coming out, drink order was wrong, 1 meal of chicken was dry and overcooked, 1 steak the server didn't ask how they wanted it cooked so came out overcooked. Had to repeatedly ask 3 servers for the bill. It was for my birthday dinner and I was very disappointed.
