We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Rogue Bistro. Our waitress was very vibrant with a lovely persona but not over the top, and she was very attentive. Our meal was divine, authentic with exquisite flavours. Our dessert was incredible. Value for money was definitely ten out of ten.

I went there with my son who is from Melbourne. He loves food and eating out as most Melbournians do. He was very happy about the food experience at Rogue. The portion was just right, the plating was simple but appealing and love that the appetisers were “to share”. He and I enjoyed every bit of it, but then I already love your food as we used to regularly go there for brunch which my friends and I miss that very much. Please bring back the brunch service.
A suggestion would be a tasting menu. It’s a great way to learn about the food of restaurants. Thanks for the beautiful food.

Food and service was great. Was expecting a more higher end experience following the hype from word of mouth, but as it’s a bistro, it was a nice experience.

Had such a great night. Dad was in Brisbane from out of town so my partner and I took him out for dinner. Dad is a former head chef and he raised my taste buds well - so we enjoy good food. Rogue Bistro has also been on my Brisbane bucket list for some time so I am really glad it lived up to expectations. The food was delicious, the wine was fantastic and we could not have had better service.

The service was very good, and the restaurant itself is lovely, with the outdoor dining area.
The food, although the dishes are contemporary and have some nice ideas, just uses too many ingredients.
Most of the dishes we tried, (sheep, vegetable gnocci, scallops) had so much going on it detracted from the flavor of the main ingredient. The lamb itself was cooked beautifully, but all the extra stuff on the plate just made it hard to appreciate the lamb for it's own delicious flavor.
We will probably try Rogue again in a few months, just to see if they have pared down the dishes, but for now, we will stick to our usual favorite restaurants which tend to keep things simpler in order to let the ingredients shine.

We sat upstairs & it was intimate & cosy for our group of five, great to be able to hear one another to catch up. The downstairs area was much busier / louder but looked fun & full of atmosphere. The food was exquisite & great value, staff were friendly & knowledgeable about the menu. Will be back for sure.

Having eaten in restaurants all over Brisbane, Rogue is definitely our favourite! We love the warmth of the services staff, and the food is simply the best! The ark is perfect for sharing and the cocktails & dessert we ordered were fantastic. Last but not least - the mushroom baos = BEST! A very unique and delicious entree.

We had 3 courses &, with the exception of the pork belly being dry, all the food was great. Waiters were subtlety attentive & explained all the ingredients. Unfortunately my wife faced the toilet door which needed spring loaded closure as the light shone in her eyes when the door was left open. Availability of BYO mid-week enhanced experience. Will go again.

Always impeccable. We attended for the Dessert Degustation which was utterly and completely mind blowing. Service, atmosphere and menu are second to none. Have dined for dinner before and dessert is always the highlight and most important part of the meal, so indulging in a full evening of Rogue’s signature desserts was a no brainer. Was great to take a peak through the beautiful glass doors of The Refinery to catch a glimpse of Rogue’s sister events venue. I cannot speak more highly of this establishment. However, sad to see that one of our favourite waitresses has moved onto another endeavour after being with the business for quite a few years. Thankfully there are still some pretty impeccable wait staff here. We love seeing the same faces and getting to know more about the business and the people that serve our food, despite being merely seasonal regulars. There is a real family vibe about the restaurant, a comfortable environment with incredible fine dining food. A staple in Brisbane’s restaurant scene I believe.

We had been to Rogue for breakfast but this was the first time for dinner. It did not disappoint. Unfortunately there were night time road works in the street so it was a little noisy and a bit harder to find a park. Food wad sensational. We will be back!

Table of 4, we ordered 2 of the arks so we got to try ALL of their mains and sides! Everything was juicy and delicious and we had a table absolutely covered in amazing food. The entrees were also worth the money. And the desserts! Oh my, I could just get dessert and a cuppa. They were all beautiful and delicious and an experience in themselves.
