    Very nice restaurant with a good selection of food, drinks and cocktails. Did have all the fans running and was sat directly below one so was a little bit cold but will go back when we’re next at Surfers.

    We booked to go as the place looked very busy the night before. Upon arrival we were shown to our table. Ordered Adults and Children's meals. The entrees come out, then all the main meals. The adult's had finished all their meals before the children's meals had arrived. When asked, the waiter said, I'm not sure, I'll go find out. They came back to advise that the pizza's were delivered and given to another table. That they have now remade our pizza's and they were in the oven. We then had to wait another 15 minutes before they had delivered the meals to the children. They did offer another drink, but we were more or less ready to leave and go home. So I then asked if one of the pizza's could be refunded of the bill. They acknowledge this. The music was very loud, that you could actual find it hard to hear each other. Otherwise it was a clean, vibrant restaurant, although drinks and food menu were quite expensive.

    As Steampunkers ourselves, we were keen to try out this place. Nice steampunk inspired décor. Staff dress in more 1920s garb, but work in with the theme. That's about the end of steampunk, though. We wore some nice steampunk hats (which got a lot of compliments), but generally don't expect to see customers in anything but street dress. It's basically a pub/club, so the drinks and food are what you would expect - nothing exciting or different, but adequate and priced accordingly. Went on a Saturday night, so was crowded and very loud. Despite having booked weeks in advance, there was no table for us and we had to wait for 15mins while the (friendly) staff tried to figure out what went wrong. They provided a round of complimentary drinks as compensation. Eventually escorted us to a nice cosy booth and the remainder of our visit was pleasant.

    Look, it’s a bar, not a restaurant. Don’t be fooled by the fact that they offer food. Some of their food is great, some of it is terrible. Stick to the very basics and food to compliment the drinking, not the other way around.

    The young lady at the door was wonderful, our table was ready and did not have to wait, that being said had to flag down a worker to get the menu and the price of food was on the high side but was nice. Would recommend going here.

    Great night at Steampunk but was disappointed by the wait time. I had booked for 8pm and arrived on time, and our table was not made available to us until 8:30pm. Other than that, it was a great night

    Hi Boofa, Thanks for the feedback. We do everything we can to have tables ready & waiting for our guest, on extremely busy nights if diners go over their allotted time it can cause delays. We appreciate your patience and understanding and hope to see you back in the venue soon :)

    The food and drinks were amazing as always however, I made a reservation three/four weeks in advance to make sure I could have a table where all my guests were seated together as it was my birthday dinner…when we arrive (after previously confirming the booking that day) we were told to split ourselves between two different seating areas (one in a corner and the other directly over from it, only allowing people to sit with their backs to the other half of our party…completely eliminating our chance of socialising amongst ourselves throughout dinner). Thankfully a staff member could understand my frustration and grabbed some more chairs so we could at the very least sit together (on a very small table considering it was holding a party of 9 people). Up until this experience I would always recommend steampunks, however this has made my view on the establishment completely change. Most important when reading this Review is remembering that I made a point of reserving a table 3 weeks in advance so that there would NO problems in regards to seating, as I said before I spoke on the phone with a steampunks staff member that very morning to confirm the booking and ensure everything would run smoothly for my special night and yet when we arrived we were chucked in the corner spread out across two spots, whilst watching two other birthday celebrations (completely accommodated for and with ample amount of room to enjoy them selves) happen in the back of the restaurant. Not a great feeling when you’ve paid money to have an enjoyable night and you can’t even see your guests faces properly because we are all sat 3 metres apart. Absolute shame that this was okayed in the first place a party of 9 people (who booked nearly a month in advance) shouldn’t have to be seperate from each other because of the lack of preparation by staff. Very disappointed to say the least and wish I was lying when I said it put a serious dampener on the mood for a while.

    Steampunk - Surfers ParadiseResponded on 31 May 2022

    Hi LozR, I'm sorry to hear that your group was sat across 2 tables. We have a very large & busy restaurant and do our best to accommodate everyone's requests. Unfortunately not everyone can have the best table and due to OH&S we need to keep access and not block walkways which means occasionally splitting up larger groups. Thank you for your feedback, we will definitely take it on board.

    Hi NickG, Thanks for the feedback as I'm sure you're aware current food and alcohol pricing is at an all time high but we feel our pricing is competitive. We also run daily specials, discounts & deals for our more budget conscious guest and clearly display or pricing so guest can make an informed decision before ordering. Thank you for your feedback

    Love the aesthetic, service was great, food was delicious. Only complaint was the booth tables get very warm once a couple bodies get crammed into them. Not sure if better airflow can be implemented or air conditioning installed.

    Steampunk - Surfers ParadiseResponded on 31 May 2022

    Hi Josh, Thank you for your feedback and the 4 Stars! We definitely do crank the air-con and have air-con installed. It can be a challenge keeping a temperature level that suits all guest and will continue to monitor the temperature levels. I would recommend you request a deck or outdoor table for your future visits.

    We were looking forward to our evening at Steampunk and enjoyed the meals and cocktails. Unfortunately our party of 5 were seated in a small very dark booth in the corner of the restaurant away from everything and this was quite claustrophobic. We were not really able to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant and next time would request a different table.

    Our first time to Steampunk was last night. We did some research ahead to get an idea of what was on offer. We were not disappointed. Steak was cooked to perfection - we both have rare and that's what we got. Oysters so fresh and delicious. The overall experience as great. Staff so helpful and friendly. Music was great - not too loud, that we could still have a conversation without having to shout at each other! Enjoyed it so much we have rebooked this evening being our last night at Surfers Paradise before returning home in the morning. Highly recommend.

    Steam punk was ok but sadly not as great as it eas the last time. My steak was mostly fat and it was so loud I couldn’t converse with my fiancé. Furthermore, the seats were bar stools which didn’t help my back. The cocktails were great however and the eye fillet great.

    It's a rort asking for a tip through your ordering system when I haven't been served my food. The host escorts you to a table and tells you to order through the app. Who is the tip for? I had a booking and still had to queue up at the door - for 15 minutes. What is the point of making a booking? Sorry, next time I am in Surfers, I will avoid going to this place like the plague.

    After raving about the wings and nachos to friends I decided to book a table for Easter Sunday and have them join us. While ordering on the app, it said wings, nachos and a few other key food items were sold out! I called the waitress over and she went to the kitchen to confirm that the items were indeed sold out! Having the wait staff suggest you should just order something else on the menu is not okay, when you have an expectation for a specific food item. We always come to steampunk and bring friends around because the food and atmosphere is always on point! Extremely disappointed about this visit! And probably won’t want to be back in a hurry. Should I call ahead next time and ask whether you have the foods on the menu actually in stock?

    Steampunk - Surfers ParadiseResponded on 18 April 2022

    Hi Tee, Thanks for being a regular and return customer we really appreciate your support. I apologise for your most recent visit where we had some out of stocks. Unfortunately there are still some extreme food shortages as a result of the flooding and flow on from COVID. The simple solution would obviously be to try and find another supplier, but over the long weekend that can be difficult. We also opt not to compromise on quality and our butcher it one of the best. I hope you can understand.

    Easter Friday, and packed to the brim. Food was awesome, and service almost flawless. They missed a pizza from order, but were apologetic, and were honest with regards to what had happened with it. Great live music. 20% surcharge seemed a little steep, but given it was good Friday, were ok with paying some extra.

    Food was insanely delicious, generous portions and reasonable prices. I bought the most expensive single-person cocktail and it was worth every penny. Atmosphere was great, the decorations are great, the fire plumes are a fun added touch, and the booth we were in was cosy and comfortable. I will be back for sure!

    Some staff members were quite rude which is upsetting since most were so nice and helpful. One rude staff member brought down the whole overall experience with the staff. Cocktails were delicious and very creative. Sharing plates of food were quite small though so many multiples of each were needed for group of 5.
