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.

First time diners. We found Signiture Resturant to be a very high quality and most enjoyable experience. As a special occasion it was perfect. Will be returning again.

Food was very average. There were very few people in the restaurant and we had another couple sit right beside us... absolutely no need for that. Sorry but we would not return.

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.

Outstanding dining experience at Signature Restaurant on Wednesday night. Superb attentive service provided by Antoine and selecting the wine pairing with our meal was a great decision.

Would highly recommend for a fine dining experience in Brisbane.

The staff were fantastic and very knowledgeable. Small restaurant and nice and quiet with comfortable chairs and space around you. Food was great, staff explained it well and lots of extra (small) courses thrown in so we could try different things. Wonderful. Would come back again.

Food was amazing. Service was impeccable. We were allocated our own dining room, which enhanced the ambiance. It got a little bit warm in the room once door was closed though, but overall the whole experience is a must!

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.

We couldn't fault our dining experience at Signature. We were made feel welcome from the minute we walked through the doors, to be ushered to a nice quiet table for two. We had the 7 course degustation with exquisite wine pairing. The food was delightful & the service impeccable, they couldn't have been more attentive yet not intrusive. We will definitely be back & would highly recommend Signature.

The menu is very limited. No sides? Very expensive for what it is. Service was good, although 4 different people were at my table which I find annoying.
The decor is nice, but without music, the experience was very boring.

Enjoy the 5 course degustation option - it's good value. Matching wines are also high quality and a little quirky - reasonable value for the "exceptional" wine flight

Recommended for a special event

A place where we were celebrating a birthday. We both enjoyed the 5 course set menu with accompanying drinks. The selection was excellent with flavours and texture variety that impressed. It can be busy but tables are well spaced and we were able to enjoy our own conversations.

The food was superb and the service was impeccable.

We were shown our wines with the Degustation menu we had chosen and they were all a perfect match. I would love to know what they were, as I only remembered one.

Will definitely dine at Signature again.

Signature restaurant food is amazing. We had to ask for our wine each time which is a pity. So perhaps waiting staff could be better trained.

Our table of 7 enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu, and some of us chose the paired wines. The choice of venue was an outstanding success despite the 5.30pm time slot. Food was sublime each course was a triumph in both taste & vision appeal [I am not one to photograph my food but I was tempted]. As usual with our group, it was not only the food we ordered that impressed, it was the amuse bouche, bread, palate cleanser & petite fours that talked about the next day. Wait staff were most attentive, informative about the food and flamboyant in the presentation. Not sure why there was an hour delay before dessert appeared, but it did not disappoint when it appeared. No hesitation in recommending this venue.

Excellent exciting food. Loved that they had vegan options. Waiter was able to recommend lovely wines. I took off a star for atmosphere as we were the youngest there and it wasnt as exciting as the food.

They provide lots of fun bites in-between meals which were delicious. Left feeling more full than I expected.
