Lovely restaurant with excellent food and service, however, considering it is centred around share plates, I would have liked a bit more choice. And perhaps some of the portions could be increased e.g. 2 small slices of (unexceptional) bread for the bread and butter plate doesn't go very far when sharing.

A great restaurant in a good location. Inside and outside seating as well as at the bar.
Great selection of wines, cocktails and beers.
Menu is constructed as a ‘ shared plate menu’ with a good variety and some really delicious special surprises. Recommend the prawns with chilli jam and the beef with onions (onions are an amazing surprise)
Service is efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Highly recommend

Nota is a standout in Brisbane for the delicious food that is being served here, together with good attentive service in an attractive setting.
Loved our evening and hope you thrive as you are so much better than most of the offerings.

The wine list is so very expensive. The night we visited the cheapest bottle of white wine was $72.00 I think that is outrageous!! The meal was reasonable in price but the main courses limited. We were charged $4.60 on our bill for paying with a credit card, that has never happened previously in any restaurant in Brisbane and we eat out several times a week.

We had a party of 10 enjoy our Christmas 2019 Ladies lunch at NOTA on Sunday, we found the service from staff to be excellent and the $55 per head menu fantastic. The quality, variety, presentation and quantity of food was excellent. Nota was also very accommodating around dietary requirements. We all had a wonderful afternoon and I would definitely recommend NOTA to others. Thanks for a great afternoon.

Well thought out clever menu with just enough choices. Food was as described and beautifully cooked and presented. Flavours were clear and distinct rather than mushed together. Service was friendly and unobtrusive with good knowledge of the menu and wine list. Wines were again cleverly selected and chosen well to match food. Lovely ambience and value for money dining experience. Thanks Seb and team

Best lunch I’ve had in a long time! Food was absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients and beautifully cooked. I had the octopus and my friend ordered the white fish ceviche. Even the mixed salad we shared was amazing. The menu has lots of interesting and innovative dishes. Excellent service. Can’t wait to go back.

Lovely dinner at NOTA. Service was particularly good, food super tasty. I wish it was slightly more atmosphetic, (darker,) with the music a bit louder.

Would highly recommend !

The food and service at this place was outstanding and reasonably priced in comparison. Our only complaint was that the noise level inside was high so in retrospect it may have been a little quieter on the footpath. Will definitely be back !

We had a lovely night at Nota last Friday. Our group of six first balked at the set menu which is a requirement if you have 6 or more in the booking. However, there was lots of choice and the servings were generous. Overall, the food was fantastic, and the service friendly and efficient.

The food and the service were excellent at Nota. My only complaint is that it was very noisy and thus very hard to have a conversation.

I would recommend Nota as the staff were extremely helpful on the night. The food was excellent and brought out on time. The banquet of 55.00 per head was normally for 6 people only but they catered for our party when only four could show up. They also allowed us to stay over 4hrs due to the second sittings being cancelled.

Service was great and food was good, snacks were all delicious but the mains lacked seasoning and were a little bland compared to the other food. Cocktails were fantastic and wine recommendation from the waitress was great! Will definitely return.

Second visit to NOTA. We have been overly impressed on both occasions with the chef's selection. Each course was delicious - especially the fish burger, salmon and beef bourguignon , small but interesting wine list - we had bottle of Beaujolais and Cab Franc and they were both terrific. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Fast becoming our favourite restaurant....

Excellent food, of note was the slow cooked BBQ octopus. The wait staff knew the food and wine options very well and were attentive without being obsequious. I felt it was good value for the quality of food.
