Fantastic dining for their reasonably priced signature experience. Food was delectable and the wait staff were very knowledgeable and courteous. Equally affordable wine pairing as well. I highly recommend dining at Signature.

Constantly looking for waiters for drinks, 3 half glasses of wine for $80 no value. Food was good, service and value poor

Overall - a fab experience .
Service from the young lady who was assigned to us was perfect .
Food quality very high and cooked beautifully .
We went with the Signature experience and all dishes were delightful . The chocolate/coffee based dessert has to be the best I have ever experienced - wow!
The fish was the main dish - beautifully cooked . Just lack a bit of umph for my tastes but appreciate most would enjoy.
Thank you Emporium for making our wedding anniversary night out special .
Cheers Matt and Samantha

Was excited about taking my daughter to her first ever fine dining experience for her 18th birthday. I booked in advance and let the restaurant know that it was my daughters birthday and she was a Vegetarian . Unfortunately the wait staff did not acknowledge it was a birthday dinner and were not aware of the note I had sent about her being a Vegetarian. The food and wine over the evening was quite nice however even though the restaurant was not busy we still had our orders messed up with the wrong desert being delivered. The evening was a little disappointing as I genuinely thought the restaurant would have made more of an effort to make us feel special seeing we had booked in advane and there were only 4 other tables booked on the evening we were there.

Food was very good but check your bill before you tap ... we were overcharged $120 for meals we didn’t order. Waiter was a tad arrogant. Ambience and food was excellent.

A birthday date to spoil my special lady made possible by Emporium starting at the rooftop bar for cocktail sundowners then down to level 1 Signatures for a very tasteful fare matched to lovely wines. Fab service then a relax down stairs to the Piano Bar...5 Stars all the way.

Brilliant dining experience ! We started upstairs at the rooftop bar - a great view, but the seats on the balcony were at a premium. Dinner at signature would have to be one of the best dining experience I have had in Brisbane in a long time. Excellent service, beautiful food, and not stupidly priced. Can’t say enough good things - thank you !

We had attended the restaurant the week before and it was superb. Only slightly disappointed today as the salmon was overcooked despite a specific request that it be only lightly cooked with a jelly centre.
The little extras were appreciated and the artichoke bread was amazing. but the highlight was definitely the scallops and pork belly.

We visited Signature for our 13th Anniversary and were expecting an upmarket and refined experience. We found the service and food impeccable. Exactly what we were looking for. We have dined a Vue de Monde in Melbourne which up until now was our best dining experience... as you would expect for the price. Dining at Signature surpassed this experience and was much cheaper. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who is looking for a great service experience, complete with explanations of every that is served, and a quality of food that you are willing to pay for.

The restaurant could not be faulted. Service was prompt but not rushed, courteous and knowledgeable of their menu. Each course was perfectly prepared, tasted excellent and was superbly presented. This is the type of service one hopes for but seldom receives from other businesses claiming the same standard.

Have to admit I was a bit disappointed with my dining experience. The food was beautifully presented and was timely served. Three of us has the lamb which all agreed seemed to be over salted which didn’t make for a terribly pleasant taste. This trend was followed through with the fries (which you expect to be well salted but not that much!) Our other party member declared her chicken as magnificent so maybe the rest of us just chose the wrong dish. Service was very good although just a tad over attentive and intrusive. Throughout the course of the evening we must have had at least four different waiters which was a little inexplicable. I have previously dined at The Terrace where the overall experience was top notch so would give the Emporium another go at some time based on that experience.

Signature is an intimate dining experience that makes you feel that you are in a smaller venue than something as large as the Emporium Hotel South Bank. The setting is modern, but conventional and the service is attentive.
The food is fantastically presented without being overstated, and the taste is even better after every mouthful.
I highly recommend Signature to anyone looking for a restaurant that just gets everything right!!

Exemplary service. Experience was slightly let down by the bland vegan meals. Our mains consisted of three slices of char-grilled zucchini, three small cubes of polenta and three mini pickled capsicums. My non-vegan entree of scallops with pork belly was better, although the scallops were overdone. Desserts were delicious.
