Staff and service were very good. I would prefer not being forced to have a set menu. The Morton bay bugs were the best

The food was fantastic and great value for money on the set menu. Couldn’t fault the service either with staff knowing their trade and what they’re serving very well.

My friends and I have a dinner club and we go to many beautiful restaurants together and Rick Shores had been on the list for quite some time.
It has a fantastic location with beautiful views on the beach front in Burleigh.
We had a good night together but I did find the table service was a little sloppy and there was only one real stand out dish in the banquet.
I would go again for the ambience and probably drinks they did have lovely cocktails, but I would never do the banquet again.

Much anticipated evening. At such a classy venue we were surprised at our standing at welcome table with at least 4 staff passing by us, being 'very busy' (5.55p)
View and food are spectacular. The food service people are excellent, less so the beverage and management who have the 'guys' afflication, and the attitude that I do not think 'Mr Shaw' would tolerate were he a diner.
With previous set menu, we always try to match wines to food. Surprised therefore that our preferred starter, a glass of Australian Chardonnay was 'sold out' - (not replaced tonight by??)the attendant proposed we settle for the NZ Chardonnay. Your extensive white wine list has but half a dozen wines by the glass, and of them, just 2 Australian?
The volume and style of the music seems to be catering for the youth of the staff rather than the average age of your customers, and seems to be trying to overide the natural beauty of the ocean noise.
Honestly, I think Management needs to attend as a customer and see the world from those eyes.
We did enjoy the experience, if you plan to maintain the exclusivity that you currently enjoy, these comments might one day be relevant.
But you did ask.
Cheers

We came with friends over a month ago and had exceptional food and overall experience.
We convinced foodie friends of ours to come back only to discover that the menu had changed and the food was not up to the standard of the previous menu.
Location, atmosphere and service are excellent however food wasnt as clean.

This is a great venue with delicious food. Limited to a set menu at the moment due to COVID restrictions but I found the menu to represent the best of what the restaurant has to offer - primarily the Moreton Bay bug rolls!
Would be great to have a few more beer options to offer though

Great food, staff 12 out of 10. Would not go back, whilst the food was good & staff really great, helpful & friendly. We found it very hard to carry out a conversation as we couldn't hear what was being said. Others near by were complaining about the noise factor.

Our waiter was very attentive and on the whole his service was very good.
We were disappointed with a couple of the courses, the beef cheek was served cold and a couple of the others weren’t up to standard. We have been to Rick Shores many times and the last time the set menu was fabulous.
We also find the constant interruptions when the food is being served is slightly unnecessary. We kept getting interrupted mid conversation over and over again. The menu is set out on the menu card, and explained at the start. Don’t think each dish needs to be declared as well. I understand some people might like that but think if we are all chatting and telling stories then the wait staff should make the call not to interrupt and just serve the food.
Sorry, but we also felt there want enough tjme between courses and felt rushed even though we had plenty of time for our sitting.

Amazing. We loved the food, the portion size so that we were not over faced and could enjoy each of the delicious degustation dishes, the staff were efficient and friendly, the view of the rolling waves was romantic and we were sitting on the raised floor area with a long bench table (shared with other unknown diners but at least 1.5m apart). Having had many other degustation menus, this was not only great value but great flavours. Would highly recommend and will definitely return. The noise level was probably unusually louder than normal due to a very large group of females who were definitely enjoying themselves but this by no means impacted on our own enjoyment of the evening.

Great food, love the set menu and the Winter Cocktails.
Refurbished space looks lovely and is definitely an improvement. Only area that needs work is the bathrooms and the hallway to the bathrooms. Does not reflect the offer or the experience offer at Rick Shores.

This was our first time dine in Rick Shore, the food was very yummy but the portions were small specially for my husband and the price you pay. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. At the end we were charged $150 extra which of course we noticed and was fixed apparently we were charged for another tables drinks. I found that a bit unprofessional as if we didn't noticed we would be $150 out of pocket. Since this has happened to us in other restaurants in the past it makes you wonder if these mixups are purely a mistake or it's done in purpose.
