Incredible food & good service. We had buttery bugs for entree, delicious quail and sirloin for mains and the delightful tiramisu to finish off.

Delicious food and cocktails. Lovely ambience. Great service. Best beef carpaccio I've had. Also had lots of non-alcoholic cocktails on the menu. Will definitely be returning.

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.

Has to be the best food and cocktails we have had in years. Visited NOTA for lunch on a Friday and the service was perfect, very friendly. Highly recommend the market fish, Black Onyx and broccolini. The NOTA Sour was by far the best cocktail I have ever had!

We had a wonderful dinner at Nota in December 2020. We started with a Negroni which was perfectly made. The burrata with tomato and strawberry salad was outstanding, as was the reef fish ravioli in a bisque. The Moreton Bay bugs, which were a special at the time, were delicious, but I'm afraid the bug meat didn't have that ideal texture and integrity that I associate with the MBB. Don't get me wrong, it was still so yummy, but I was just sad that the meat was a bit soft so I couldn't get it all out of the shell! The tiramisu, which is my favourite dessert, was 11/10. The staff provided the best service I've received in Brisbane in two years. Fabulous restaurant!

I love this place. Everything about it. The food is delicious. There’s lots of French technique in the cooking but nothing is over the top. I have gone back to this place just for their peppercorn sauce. Same with the service - wonderfully down time earth, often with a great sense of humour, but always on point with their knowledge and attention. I have been back multiple times now and it’s always great. Nota is my #1 Brisbane restaurant.
