My wife and I enjoyed a belated Valentines dinner at SK Steak & Oyster and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was our first time to SK and we were impressed with the service and restaurant. Our steaks were prepared perfectly and the setting made for a relaxing dining experience. We'll be going back.

While the food was nice, it was way overpriced and the staff were very average, service was slow and the sommelier was quite rude.

The food was amazing and could not be faulted! We were seated near the kitchen galley and the waiters kept hitting my shoulder and the back of my seat every time they went past. This would not have normally worried me, but I just had surgery and had stitches in my shoulder. None of the waiters apologised. Our waiter was also very strange - We wanted to order the House Mix entree to start with, to try the Prawns, Lobster and Bugs, but he wouldn't let us order it! As a result, I missed out on trying the Lobster. The Chefs were also standing around 'people watching' and clearly commenting on guests. Even though this didn't compromise the food, it was very obvious and made us feel uncomfortable. Overall, the food was great and I would definitely recommend it to friends.

The food was really good and the waitress was really attentive, but we waited 30 minutes between finishing the entree and getting the main. Although the food was nice, I felt it was overpriced for what we got.

We booked this restaurant for their lobster special as their publicity said that at $85 for a 4 course lobster meal they weren’t making any money from it. On arrival we were advised that the four dishes were a taster to share and this should have been a clue. The seafood cocktail had 3 pieces of lobster for 2 people, the risotto was bland and the forth course was half a lobster to share. I thought it was poor value. There was a very high ratio of staff who seemed to be falling over each other to look busy, which made the place seem crammed as it was full of diners and staff all over the place. In the end I had to ask someone if we could pay our bill which was quite substantial as their wine is expensive (but good).

SK will be a one off for me.

went for the Lobster special. Was very nice. Share plates. Service was friendly and excellent. Restaurant fitted out well. Booths (maybe seat 4?) looked lovely. I will try again with the usual menu

We visited for the recent lobster special. The food was excellent especially the risotto. Bit disappointed that there was only one lobster cocktail and half a lobster to be shared between the two of us however it was outstanding. Looking forward to visiting again in the near future for the general menu. The espresso martinis were a great way to finish the night. Service from Darryl was also of the highest quality.

Hi Team, the food was great but had three people for the lobster special and the main came out with only half a lobster. That was a bit disappointing. We ended up ordering another main size risotto each. A worked out ok for you guys but we would of been happy paying more for the special also.
Other customers may not though.
Everything was great and will return without question but the quantity was a little light.
Love the place otherwise and the staff were great.

Love, love, love. One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while. They have got everything right - menu,, service, ambience and decor. I went on a Sat night and there were two musicians - one playing piano and one playing saxophone and playing modern songs. This really added to the ambience and is a bit more unusual for Brisbane restaurants. The food and cocktails were delicious and the number of staff and attentiveness was faultless. I will definitely be back.

A very well set out restaurant with a new feel and vibe. Mostly a very good experience but I really don’t understand why it takes 15 mins to bring out the wine you ordered. Entrees were ordered and finished before wine come out.

Nice food, good service and nice buzzy atmosphere. However the price is way over the top for what was on offer. The signature steak had run out and it wasn’t even 7.30pm. Wine we first ordered was also not available. Eye fillet is not much bigger than a 50 cent piece.

We decided at the last moment to try sk steak and oyster. We loved the oysters served with billy Carte champagne plus the house beef off the bone and the potatoes and Brussel sprout vegetables.
The wait service was very very good and the price was reasonable. Very comprehensive wine list.
We loved that it wasn’t noisy with carpet on the floor it meant we could talk and not have to shout!
The music was an eclectic mix of 70,80,90s music but not offensive
We have booked again with other friends next week.
Highly recommended

Restaurant looked good. Staff were very attentive sometimes to the point of being intrusive food was good but not outstanding for the price. And the absence of anything on the plate other than the dish ordered looked empty and cheapens the whole experience. Plus being told chef will cook the steak how he does it was very presumptuous.

We visited 2 weeks in a row and enjoyed our dining experience both times. Only one thing was that the mushroom sauce for the steaks the 2nd time was very thin and runny unlike the previous week, which we assumed would be standard. Also my only other concern was that the steamed vegetables looked like they came from a frozen bag. I’d suggest taking the peas and carrots off the menu as from a styling perspective they look primary school in the same bowl with peas. My fish was superb and the iceberg lettuce salad was fantastic!!

Overall I would still recommend SK to a friend, it was basically only the service which was a major let down.
Very difficult to get the waitress' attention, her english was minimal so got some incorrect drinks orders (more than once- and we triple checked), also meant she didnt put our order through correctly so everything arrived at once and we were wanting to share the meal so pasta etc was cold by the time we got to it. Food quality and ambiance was good- can see it would have been exceptional if everything arrived correctly (not the kitchens fault here).

Usually not one to write a negative review but hoping the service can be improved as I would love to go back for the food.

Beautiful ambience and venue, good service however it was disappointing as I had called ahead to ask if a birthday dessert could be organised for my partner with a message and candle and they assured me this would be organised.

I th en followed up with the waiter and maîtred when we arrived and they said it would be organised then we had to wait 30 mins for a strawberry cake to come out without any birthday message and candle. I would have brought a candle along with me if I knew.

For an almost $300 bill I would have expected better service.

What a wonderful dining experience! It was my turn to organise a date night with my man and I struck gold! We had oysters in mind and I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect restaurant. What a treat!! The service was outstanding and we both come from hospitality backgrounds so to impress us isn’t an easy achievement. The food was delicious and to be honest a place can have all the ambience in the world but if the food is rubbish what’s the point??? We would definitely recommend SK especially for those looking for a special night out. Thank you.

Great location with additional parking validated. Fires prevented delivery of oysters from Batemans Bay. Food very good however wine by glass not poured at table. This will need to change. Will definitely return

Great new addition to Brisbane’s dining scene. Maybe need to tweak the background music once musicians finished playing as it didn’t seem to fit the ambience or style of this quality restaurant - but that is my opinion only. Definitely will visit again. Thanks

Hi,
My wife and I had the most memorable dining experience, the service and attention we were given was out of this world. My steak was the best ever. The wine choice by the sommelier to go with my main course was also outstanding.
Have recommended to my son who is going to have his 40th birthday with you.

And Simon and his partners and team have done it again! This beautiful space in this gorgeous Hotel ticks the boxes - decor and design, service and most of all food. Back to restaurants from my childhood - waiters in jackets, beautifully dressed tables, prawn cocktails and those gorgeous lamps. Loved the oysters, ocean trout, John Dory and the sirloin steak was especially enjoyed by my steak loving partner. Great selection of side dishes and fabulous wine list too. All I needed was some tunes from the 60’s and I would have been lost in that era. The future is looking very bright indeed SK!
