    The food, drinks and staff are brilliant. Attentive service that’s not intrusive, we appreciate how great the staff are at Queenies. There is lots of mediocre out there so it’s refreshing to meet friendly and professional people that make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive!! The food is innovative and always high quality and the cocktails are tasty. Highly recommend!!

    I was seated at the bar as I was dining alone. Unfortunately it took some time for my drink order to be taken I , but when it arrived it was delicious. The food service was much quicker, highly recommend the eggplant chips they were outstanding. The bar has an extensive range of spirits, my drink of choice is gin and the staff were pretty knowledgeable about their range. The manger apologised for the initial wait for service and very kindly provided my second drink for free. Overall lovely evening. Although they were quite busy I could tell the staff enjoyed working there.

    We ordered five share plates. The halloumi was nice. The pork was tender but too sweet. The olive platter - bread was nice, olives were scarce and whipped broad bean was even scarcer. The corn ribs lacked flavour and the Queen fish was inedible. We experienced prompt service on arrival, a little disappointed they seated three of us on a table for two (yes we booked in advance and there were many other empty, larger tables). However, once the first drinks were delivered and the food arrived, trying to obtain utensils to serve the shared platters or further rounds of drinks proved almost impossible. The dinner and serving plates weren’t cleared, we stacked them up ourselves to try and make some space and stayed that way until we left an hour or so later. A shame really as the location is great but we won’t be back!

    Food was delicious, as were drinks from the eye-catching bar but staff were a little scattered and interrupted more often than necessary. Food came before drinks so timing was all just a bit off. Our table was mistaken for another’s anniversary… Love the decor though.

    We booked a table of 10 for a birthday celebration and the food,staff and atmosphere was amazing! My friend is a coeliac and Queenies were able to accomodate our party with delicious food without issue. It’s so refreshing to go to restaurant where staff “get it and get it right “. The staff also organised the whole restaurant to sing Happy Birthday when they brought out the birthday cake which they happily stored for us. Our whole table just had such a lovely night and we will definitely be coming more often! Amazing - Queenies don’t stop what you are doing!!

    Queenies has a fun art deco vibe with vintage mirrors, smoky glass, wood panels and plush finishes. We sat at a booth with green velvet and enjoyed sparkling Rose, hand cut chips and tacos. The service was a little slow even though they weren't busy.

    We had the set menu and there wasn't a bad course. Barramundi and Waygu were the standouts. Ambience was nice inside and waiter was friendly and responsive after apolgising for delay serving us. Thick cut chips need to be a little crunchier on the outside and soft and fluffy in the middle. Will definitely come back again.

    Overpriced set menu, tiny portions, slow service and not at the standard of a fine dining experience . Only one wait staff knew the food and wines, the others were clueless.. wines that sell at bottle shops for $20 are $70+ per bottle and we asked for a Shiraz as our menu was gone and the waitress said “is that red or white?” maybe covid has regular staff off sick.. you could see many customers leaving or asking staff multiple times to order or where drinks were.. from sitting down to completing dessert took 3 hours so not for the time poor or hungry! Maybe shared plates are better value and less pretentious but I won’t be back to find out.
