    Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough for a pretreated snack ! They are so efficient, impeccable service, delicious food delivered in an almost impossible timeframe! They never hurried us, just made sure everything was served in as short a time as possible with good humour and care! Delightful staff and great atmosphere. Thank you so much !

    Another restaurant that has deteriorated. We saw wine bottles being topped up by old wine bottles. The food was dry and poorly balanced. While the venue is still cool. Service staff standards are similar to earlier (but Southside was never recognised for they service). It’s a shame the food has lost its flair and flavor with Simon Hanmer taking a step away. Overall disappointing and drab. It’s a shame we scheduled a birthday dinner here when there are so many other restaurants maintaining standards in Brisbane.

    Food and venue was sensational. Drinks did not come until after our food which was disappointing. We had the set menu and we didn't finish one course before the next came. We felt very rushed.

    The whole dining experience was first class. We had the banquet for 4 and each course came out in a timely fashion without having to rush or wait. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly at all times and just enhanced the dining experience. With regard to value for money I consider the whole experience needs to be taken into account and to me the cost of the meal was very reasonable but as part of the whole dining experience it really was very affordable. Will definitely be going back

    The food and drinks were exemplary, and the location fantastic. The service was a little on the slow side to order (but food came promptly) but that didn't matter much when we were talking a lot as a group. It's a higher priced outing, but the food is excellent. I'd come back again for sure.

    When getting the tasting menu I felt is was rushed out and when the order was taken more was brought and charged than what was asked for. I think more attention to detail and maybe ask how the meals should be paced . the wine was delightful and well matched with the food.

    The table service was very good but the food came way too fast rushing us through the meal within the hour. As the music was too loud it was hard too talk across the table so we decided to leave well before our allotted time and go somewhere quieter for a few after dinner drinks. Not sure we will return.
