We had a fantastic afternoon at Lurleens. We had lunch before the Elton John concert and the food could not have been better together with the fabulous service we received from Maria. I don't ever normally have a three course meal but the food was just so good I could not resist. Don't miss out on the lavender parfait! They bring out dry ice to finish off the presentation of the course and its just spectatcular....and it was just ridiculously delicious. Highly recommend this place for a wonderful meal.

The dining experience at Restaurant Lurleen’s was exceptional. The service host - Patrick was welcoming, obliging and his pronunciation of the dishes - excellent. He was informative and thoughtful.
We loved every morsel and every moment!!

The food and ambiance were great. We enjoyed all of our dishes. Sad thing was that the service was very slow and sometimes we were ignored although the vwait person recognized us. We ordered sparkling water three times to different wait person and they never came. We ordered matching wine to our main and we asked many times to bring wine, it arrived when more than half of the main has finished. I took my business clients there telling them this was the one of the best restaurant in Brisbane. How embarrassing! I will never take my important client there.

Food was rather salty

Entree of soup only had one scallop and the bay bugs dumplings had no filling

Main well i am glad we ordered the side dish of broc
The averdco had only a small scoop of ice cream so th coffe was bitter

Steak was nice but for 200-00 too expensive . we have been there several times but will start looking elsewhere

We sat towards the rear of the restaurant, great view, but very noisy, maybe the timber floors, found it difficult to understand what the waiter was saying. I would have liked the table to be clothed as were the inside tables. I thought the meals were a little overpriced. I had the crab filled zucchini flowers and all the flavour was in the tzatziki, could not taste the crab. The side veges were overcooked too. My main surf & turf was delish, although the brisket was a bit oily. I probably would not return to Lurleen's as I think there are more restaurants with amazing food for alot less price. I did enjoy the wine matching. The site is certainly a grand place to visit and will come back to try the Tuscan Terrace.

Husband’s birthday lunch was great. It was a little long in between courses, but otherwise could not fault the service or the beautiful food. Our guests loved it and plan on coming again. Well done Sirromet Winery, my husband and I are regular visitors and will continue to visit

We enjoyed a beautiful lunch at Lurleen’s on Sunday to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The service Emily provided was exceptional , very professional, very friendly and her attention to detail was second to none. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, the winery surroundings are exceptional. Highly recommend Sirromet

Excellent food, served at our pace, by attentive staff eager to please. Parking was not a problem (and free).
They were happy to serve my wife with a single glass of quality wine after discussing what would be to her taste with her mains. Mt teetotalness was cheerfully rewarded with a LLB and jug of ice-water at reasonable price.
Take the time to enjoy the food and the view all the way over fields and Toondah harbour to Stradbroke Is.
A little noisy commensurate with the hard surfaces and panoramic windows. Aircon coped well with a very hot day when we visited.
Should be spectacular for wildlife around dusk for the early diners.

The food, wine and service were all impeccable at Lurleen's, however for a group of 4 people it did cost us $553, which I think is overpriced, even though it is a beautiful restaurant and I would recommend it to friends. Thank you! :)

I came to Lurleen’s about 3 years ago and did the tasting menu which was absolutely outstanding. I decided to return and bring my parents and my partner for a birthday treat. It seems the tasting me ie has changed and possibly not in the most positive way. The desert, the scallop chilli broth and the brisket dishes were the standouts of the new tasting menus but the first two courses specifically missed the mark with not only myself, but All three of my guests not really enjoying them. We all felt like the dishes were a bit too try hard with flavors that were perhaps trying too hard to be edgy. Overall we still had a great experience, but I must say that the new tasting menu probably doesn’t stack up to others I have had including the old sirromet tasting menu.

Service was great as usual such lovely staff, very helpful and friendly. The food on the other hand was less than acceptable for the price you pay. I had a steak which was as tough and an old boot, I don’t usually order steak when dining out however thought with the reviews for the restaurant I would try one, not a good decision $50 for an old boot!! Very very disappointing meal.

Service was a bit slow but it was a full restaurant and we did have to wait about 0 mins for our mains. Wait staff were very good but did have to chase a few to pay the bill as they were all chatting around the bar and not checking status of tables. Food very good but no chicken on the menu and vegan options were limited for a member in our party. Always go for a special occasion!

The dining experience was fantastic.
The staff were all friendly and helpful. The 4 star rating should be a 4 and a half but can’t give a half star. And I only marked them down as we were a little rushed to order as they had numbers turn up around the same time. Our booking was made well in advance so I figured a full house shouldn’t affect the Speed at which we choose to order.
Aside from that very minor point, the food was bloody amazing! Such great flavours. We don’t eat out at fine dining restaurants very often these days and it was a real experience to enjoy the culture and taste of Sirromet. We will be going back more regularly.

Service was acceptable. Food was very poor. Quite a bit of it was left as inedible. I would not go there again and have told friends it is a destination best avoided.

When we arrived, we had no idea there was a concert on for the afternoon. We were told where to park up near the restaurant, then that changed and were told to park on the ground where all of the concert goers had to park. Then we had to walk up to the restaurant across the ground, in amongst mulch in high heels, making us late. There should have been some kind of notice upon booking to advise that there was a concert. Parking is a shambles here on a good day, let alone concert days. Parking needs to be surfaced.
