Very nice thank.
However,
(1) to give diners a buffer of 5 minutes is rather ridiculous, don't you think? Surely you can give a buffer of 15 mins or so! Would you like diners to give you a buffer for when meals should be served?

(2) You should also have a selection of cheaper wines for diners who prefer those.

As it was the first night reopening after the 3 day lockdown, only the Feast menu was available, and it was delicious, flavourful and abundant. We ate the bar counter and watched the bartender mixing cocktails. The background noise was not too intrusive. All in all a lovely dinner out.

The service was incredible and we love the space (have been before). The vegan food was lacking - both portion size and the food itself. I understand vegan food isn't the speciality and the other food looked incredible, but feel as though a bit more thought could have been put into the vegan banquet. Flavour wise it was pretty on point, but the meals themselves were kind of un-inventive and standard. We also thought for the 3 small meals it was quite steep at $65. We love NOTA and feel if we were restaurant owners we'd want this kind of feedback - it comes with absolutely the best intentions :) ( not going out of our way to complain). All the best & we'll definitely be back.

Had a beautiful date night at NOTA on Saturday. We had a later booking and arrived a little early to see if there was space to get a drink before our table was ready but it was ready to go!
The Chef's feast was outstanding, well priced and well portioned. We loved the energy of our waitress and the ambience of the venue. It was lovely to be in a place where we could have a great conversation and actually hear each other!

Five of us went for the shorter chef’s menu, Which has since been discontinued but following on from my email in booking they did it for us which I thought was very good customer service. Also one of the table is allergic to fish and they had that well in hand from the email sent. The service was excellent. All the dishes were very nice, especially the vegetables that went with the mains, and the sauce for the lamb shoulder. Wine and cocktail list were interesting and enjoyable. Most of us had two drinks, Cost averaged $100 each. Our group is looking for the best value for money degustation in Brisbane, and this would be a top contender, along with Joy, but that is so difficult to get into

We booked NOTA for date night based on the write ups and opentable reviews. It did not disappoint. Food was delicious, service was very attentive, the ambience was lovely and even the bar seating we were booked at was extremely comfortable and surprising intimate. We really enjoyed it and have been chatting about it for days after. Highly recommend 🙌

We sat at the bar which was a great experience. The staff paired wine to each course we had and we found some great wines that we will now be looking purchase from the winery.

We love this restaurant, the food, the drinks and the staff make this a local gem.

Food is impressive, but the service and atmosphere are severely lacking. We were placed on the bar, which is never a good place to start, and there was an extremely large and loud table commanding the attention of the entire restaurant all evening.

The service was almost non-existent from the floor staff, however credit to the chef who appeared occasionally and redeemed the experience somewhat.

For the price, there’s simply a magnitude of places that offer a much more refined fine dining experience. I don’t see myself visiting again anytime soon.

Servicerated okay as apart from slow they were friendly and accommodating. Food was as if the chef wasn't working! There was overcooked food, strange food pairings, sugar in the pasta sauce. Gluten free (which we informed upon booking) was accommodated in so much as the gluten containing item was simply omitted - no gluten free bread or gnocchi to replace that which the standard serving received.
