We stayed here last year and were blown away by the level of service, decor and cleanliness. So for our wedding anniversary we came back for a night at the piano bar booking in for 20:15 with a view to stay for dinner. Sadly the music ended just before 9pm. I understand due to C19 hospitality is doing it hard now and booking bands is a luxury but it would of been great to be emailed letting a booking for a wedding anniversary know that the music was ending early. I'm not annoyed its just your service is usually so flawless I thought I'd mention it. Lastly it seemed the floor staff didn't really know what beer or cider was in their own fridge. Its a shame as they know everything about the cocktail menu but when it came to other beverages the seamless experience gets shakey. I dont usually write reviews but was so taken by your venue the first time I thought I would let you know.

Thank you.

Was a bit too noisy during the piano set to have a good conversation

The piano bar is a great place to relax and take in the great ambience. We enjoyed the high tea on Sunday and the Jazz group were amazing.
The food was of a high standard and great cocktails and wine.
The service was also great with very polite staff. Overall we had a great experience.

Nice, relaxed and refined atmosphere with a wide drinks selection. Didn't end up eating there, had food at The Terrace bar upstairs instead which was very tasty.
BUT - the Piano Bar knew nothing of our reservation - they DON’T take reservations on Friday & Saturday nights, despite it being available/bookable on Open Table. Luckily they were quiet and had plenty of seating available.
Was also disappointed the advertised live piano/jazz wasn’t on over the Christmas/New Year period, this is the main reason we wanted to go.

My expectations of an Emporium dining experience were high (my Terrace dinner had been amazing) so I chose to bring my guest for ‘High Tini’ at the Piano Bar. But...
- firstly, my booking should not have been accepted on the website because there was a private function on in the Piano Bar at the time of my booking and it was closed to everyone else;
- the Food
- the waiter in Belle Époque seated us at the table under the dripping air conditioning unit. Thankfully it was a table for four so we moved ourselves to avoid the drips landing on my guest’s plate.
- the fruit flies hanging around the tiered plate and zipping around our heads did not make for relaxed conversation.
I was disappointed and embarrassed overall. Sadly, I learned that there are better value, lovelier environments for high tea in Brisbane.

Went for the High Tini on a Tuesday, was a lovely calm experience, the waiter/bartender was extremely attentive and kind. Food, coffee and mocktails were lovely too. Went with a friend and her newborn and we all enjoyed our High Tini experience.

Great place - fun experience. High tea with a difference. Would definitely recommend this option at The Emporium.
