Staff are lovely but the place seemed to be under staffed. Forgot a couple of the drinks orders and also didn’t ring us the desert menu when we asked for it. Probably because we didn’t have the same person looking after us.

I still liked the place and expect to return

We had lunch here and ordered the slow-cook beef rib. It was meltingly tender and delicious. We shared a panacotta that was also delicious. Service was great. It’s a stunning position on the cliff top. Only problem was the cold wind, so maybe not a great winter venue on a windy day.

Great view, nice fit out, but service wasn't great. Some staff were friendly, others not. Biggest let down was slow service despite so many staff rostered on

Great views looking along the river with the backdrop of the city and botanical gardens. The noise level was fairly high and service was quite slow as there was a large table of 20 who had arrived. I had to go to the bar and order my own drink. The staff are very very friendly. I would still recommend Joey’s as a great place to catch with your girl friends or family.

The attendant who served our table was friendly and courteous. It took a long time for our drinks to be bought out to the table. The food was nice but felt it was slightly overpriced. I ordered the chicken schnitzel and I was still hungry after eating it, it needed to have a bigger salad with it.

Great food, drinks and ambience. Long queues at 12pm however, because this is the time Joeys opens for lunch so everyone arrives and orders at the same time

The chicken schnitzel was over priced for what it was. $28 for a piece of chicken is crazy. It’s hard not to enjoy as the view is beautiful. But I don’t think I’ll be back in a hurry as the food was too pricey for what you got.

Would never come back. The manager made my birthday a very unpleasant memory. Nicely told us to never come back because we weren’t happy with his service. What else to say? Don’t go there.

Easily the worst service I've ever experienced.

Most service staff seemed to not want to be there, we constantly had to chase down staff to get more drinks, staff not clearing empty glasses when delivering new drinks, inconsistencies with staff - we asked for the wine menu as we wanted to grab a glass of wine to finish off, staff member said they would grab one but it didn't arrive 10 mins later so we asked someone else & were told they have double booked the table and that they'd bring the bill to us (we checked online bookings after we left and there were definitely free tables we could be moved to). Staff member offered to get toilet key for me but never came back, so I went to another staff member and they told me the key was lost and that I'd have to use public toilet. Staff all wearing mismatched/not branded jumpers so it was impossible to tell who worked there - which we needed to do to flag down any service.

Cocktails were great though, salumi board pretty good.

Moreton Bay Bug Roll was great, pizza was cold and prawn linguine wasn't that amazing. I requested for a table by the river - she put us at the very back (not the best view) even though there was no one in the restaurant and had vacant tables. Only until I requested AGAIN to get a better view (like I initially requested), she moved us, but had a bit of an attitude.
