No. Firstly, i booked a table inside only to be told there was no table inside that we would have to sit outside at a table right next to the entry. It was a very cold and the wind blew right onto your back. Also, terrible service. Waited 45 minutes for our meal.

Emeraude is like an Oasis in the middle of a tiny town. It’s not what you would expect to find. Very classy, with an artistic old world vibe, amazing service, and divine food. Highly recommend.

Our experience wasn’t up to the usual standard. My partner’s chicken pie looked and tasted like it came from Brumbys, served with a squashed boiled potato and peas! And my chicken soup was tasty but not the big bowl presented beautifully like usual and served with two bits of cheap breadstick. Usually a nicer baguette :(

Not as good as I was expecting. They were plagued with problems during our visit. They ran out of gas and couldn’t prepare some dishes and had to improvise with others. They had sold out of some popular menu items earlier in the day and not been able to prepare more.
So it wasn’t their best performance for sure.
On the positive side, they scrambled well and did their best to make up for it.
We had a good evening, but being honest, it was not a 5 star performance. I’m sure it isn’t the norm.

Fantastic service and food. Booked weeks in advance for an overdue catch up with friends. Between booking and attending, the restaurant decided to hold a special long lunch event the same day as our reservation. Rather than cancelling on us, they honoured our booking and we had the place to ourselves before the long lunch. Outstanding service, everyone was welcoming, attentive and didn't rush us to finish before the long lunch started. The food was delicious too. Thoroughly recommend, you don't get service like that these days.

We decided to try Emeraude after recommendations from friends. I didn't book early enough for a Saturday evening and could only reserve an outdoor table. Fortunately, the weather was warm, but inside looked much cosier for Winter dining. We went with high expectations and were not disappointed.
The waiters were excellent - fun, informed, passionate and helpful (they're smiling as they read this) - well done guys ! The menu was a little difficult to read in the low light but the range of offerings was good. We chose the grilled duck breast and the cassoulet then waited 25 minutes (seemed longer) for delivery to our table. Both meals were delicious (see pictures). Tasting the baguette took me straight back to France. It's difficult to find such bread in Australia, let alone the Toowoomba area. The wine was good as well.
After main course, we had no space for desserts - you would need to be very hungry to eat an entree and main and dessert at Emeraude. Thanks to all the staff for our pleasant dinner.
We'll be back. I'll book earlier next time to secure an indoor table.

The entre and wine was so PERFECT!! Our mains were nice but they bought out two entirely wrong dishes. It took a while for the mains to be served so we didn't want to cause a fuss and just ate them. Other than that, the guy who waited on us was amazing!

We dined at emeraude for my wifes birthday. The food was excellent , all of the courses were above expectations and we would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone wishing for an extraordinary dining experience. At the end of the night we were not charged for our desert as a gift for my wifes birthday .will definitely be back.

Visited Emeraude with a girlfriend to celebrate my 50th birthday after seeing it advertised in the Courier Mail and on The Great Southeast - so many choices on the menu for brunch. Staff were very helpful when it came to deciding what to eat. Noise level was great - not too loud. Service was fabulous. Nothing to fault! Definitely will be coming again.

It was lovely to get out of town for a great food experience! I had the Cassoulet which I would have to say was the best I have had since the “Cassoulet Festival” in Castelnaudary France! Fabulous thank you! It is a pity the tables are not a little better presented considering the food is not cheap. A table cloth and linen napkins would add to the presentation! Will recommend to family and friends. Thank you!

Had a wonderful lunch at Emeraudes. The food presentation was first class and the meals were delicious.
The eclairs for dessert were a highlight. The staff were so friendly, cheerful, attentive and helpful. Excellent wine list to choose from and the coffee was brilliant. I am not “an influencer” and paid for the meal we so enjoyed. Well worth the drive from the other side of Toowoomba. Can’t wait to go back.

Called in to Emeraude to share a piece of cake but saw what other people were eating for lunch and had to have the burger, which was delicious. Unfortunately, we were going back for dinner and it meant that at dinner we were only able to fit in a couple of entrees and a shared dessert much to the amusement of the staff who had seen us earlier at lunch. Service was fantastic, all staff attentive, knowledgeable of the food on offer and I can't speak highly enough of our experience there. The food was superb, loved the goats cheese and beetroot tart and blackberry creme brulee. Will be back to try the cassoulet as it looked amazing.

The food was amazing (as always) although we wished we'd been pre-advised that the menu would be limited for Mother's Day - food allergies meant one of our party only had one choice for each course, whereas he would normally have had more choices from the wider menu. But all in all, it was a truly lovely lunch with beautiful food and attentive service.

As a first-time brunch diner at Emeraude, I was very impressed. The food quality was incredible, the freshness outstanding. Pricing is higher than I'd normally be willing to spend but the serving sizes are huge therefore the value for money was evident. Can't wait to go back and try their lunch or evening menus.
