Playing on the idea of mixing a home with an artistic hospitality venue, Salon de co was inspired by the Art Deco style, the Années folles, and the idea of revolutionising the world with creative flair.

Anthony Hales leads the kitchen team at Salon de Co, a born-and-bred Australian with experience from all across the globe. Anthony has run several restaurants including Thomson’s Reserve and Deer Duck Bistro where he achieved several accolades and received his first chef’s hat. Once again venturing to Asia, he journeyed to Korea to learn about its traditional cuisine, before taking a three-month culinary trip around Australia to understand the country’s gastronomic culture. His final return to Brisbane saw him take on his current Salon de Co role, where he’s already won numerous accolades, including finalist in Appetite of Excellence, best fine dining restaurant 2017 from Restaurant and Caterers, and Chef of the Month from Export Fresh.

The service is great, well trained waiters. The food is on a little expensive side, but everything is amazingly tasty.

Thomson's Reserve was a foodie experience! We had a the Australian Degustation matched with wines and it was superb and memorable. We will be heading back to the restaurant for a romantic dinner rather than a business meal. Our guests were very impressed by the quality and exceptional service.

I booked this restaurant through open table for New Years Day 2016 but the restaurant was actually shut. There was a chef there taking roon service orders. So Victoria went above and beyond and checked with the chef if they could do lunch for me and they did. The food was amazing and so was the service. Am going back to try their tasting menu and can't wait. I highly recommend you try this place.

The french waitress, I forgot her name, was exceptional in both her knowledge of the food, the service and her ability to read her customers. Food was all very well thought out with impeccable plating. We used our accor membership and felt that was good value however if paying full price I'd expect slightly more generous portions.

A lovely experience in a wonderful setting. The building has such character. My only suggestion would be some appropriate music to create ambience, I don't recall hearing any and because of that our table though we had to keep the conversation level down.

My husband and I tried the 8 course tasting menu with matching wines and it was amazing. This is the best tasting menu we have had. Great service from the staff. Made our anniversary a memorable one. We will definitely be back.

I've eaten in great restaurants all over the world and this food was as good as the very best of them. The pricing was also very good given the exceptional quality of the food. The only comment I would make was that the main meal portion size was too small. At the end of the night I felt I had enjoyed one of the best restaurant meals I'd ever had but was starving.

This awesome, funky space made our evening really special. Art Deco gorgeous fit out with a perfect blend of old and new, fab new music that was of a 50's upbeat jazz style, excellent cocktails (I have a new favourite now, who knew violet liqueur even existed?!), sensational food (and we are foodies, we wanted to lick the plates!!) and just generally a great night

The dinner was for a special event, the ambience was very good, the front dining area very nice and intermit. We chose the 3 course option, our entree and main course were very nice. For desert I had the cheese plate, the cheese was very nice, however the biscuit/cracker was very salty and overpowering. My partners combination style desert was too sweet for his liking. Overall a very good experience and we would certainly return.

My large group of friends and I had a terrific dinner here. The staff were incredibly accommodating of our increasingly boisterous group, and were happy for us to order whatever we liked - I'm so used to having degustation being either whole table or nothing! The revived art deco interiors are gorgeous and the food was just amazing. I can't say enough nice things, and I'm sorry we broke two wine glasses.

The food is exceptional! Presentation and taste were incredible! Unfortunately the ambience is lacking and the service was terrible but these are both things that can be improved and if they are then it will be a definite hot spot! Will definitely go back for the food it really was excellent!

I booked the night with another couple to celebrate my wifes 70th. Birthday. It was an ideal venue with 4 or five choices in Entree, mains and Desserts and we all had different items in all cases, all of which were considered as excellent. I had difficulty in choosing in all cases and would recommend it for quiet and romantic dining.

Thomson's Reserve Restaurant at The Inchcolm Hotel was absolutely delightful for a celebratory dinner The restaurant's ambience and charm of the premises and newly refurbished decor was classic and subtle. The Socialite's Bar (just across the corridor) was a great start to the evening - wonderful cocktails (old and new). The Reserve Restaurant provided a convenient relocation and wonderfully fresh, local, sustainable, organic meals.Great service. Great wine. Great food. A lovely evening.

It was my wife's birthday I said this when I was booking. They made no effort to acknowledge the birthday or anything else. The restaurant was so cold it was unbearable. Unfortunately on the night we had to content with two functions this made us wait for a very long time for a second course.

Food was wonderful! Small but adequate servings with beautiful flavours and fabulous presentation. For me, a little over salted but my husband thought it was perfect. A negative - it is a small restaurant where tables for two are very close together. Not suited to intimate dining.Service was polite and efficient although our initial greeting by the man behind the bar was not particularly warm or welcoming.Food is well worth the visit though!

The dining room and bar or small but beautifully renovated. Service was excellent ( thank you Kingsley) but we were all a little disappointed in the food. Great presentation but not a lot of flavour. Perhaps we expected too much from many glowing reviews. We did have a lovely night however and would definitely recommend it for drinks or a romantic dinner alternative.

Food was great, service was appalling, went there for valentines day and not only waited for drinks for more then 20 minutes, didn't receive some drinks, informed the person in charge but I don't think she cared, as it happened again and dampened the night. This business does not compete with the other restaurants in their space. Very disappointing and will not go back and have giving non favourable reviews to friends and family.

We went Thomson's Reserve for our girls night out. We are a bunch of foodies. Our side dishes did not arrive together with the main meals and they made the dishes complimentary even though we were happy to pay for them. They also cater for our vegetarian friend. It was a lovely experience and I highly recommend it to foodies!
