Our visit to Summit was unfortunately quite disappointing.
Though the views from Mount Coot-tha across Brisbane didn’t disappoint, if you’re visiting for these alone you can enjoy them for free from the scenic lookout next door.
The food was average - undercooked, cold entrees and flaccid pork belly for mains. The plates from our entrees also weren’t cleared until the mains arrived.
We were attended to by a surly Asian girl and a friendly young man. Our water was topped once during our visit.
Great service, friendly insightful staff. Food was perfect and the scenic views at night superb.
Great quiet spot. Exactly what we needed. Great food and good service
The food was fitting for a special occasion, not a luncheon to catch up with friends.
Was hoping for a more casual dining experience
Eye fillets were very poor. Tough, stringy and overpriced. Fries were too salty..supposed to be Rosemary flavour and could not be eaten. Everything else was fine...should have ordered something else..
There was a disappointing lack of vego/vegan options. No vegetarian menu. Those eating steak and chicken were happy.
Waiters on the night seemed inexperienced- slow with drinks, and unsure about vegetarian requests.
Had the New Years’ Eve dinner a month in advance and expected fine dining as was suggested on their website and the $95 per head price. The service seemed rushed as my boyfriend and I were at the early sitting and the waiters seemed keen to serve us our next course even before we had finished. Food was very disappointing. Roast pork entree was OK but the main of chicken was very salty and the dessert was tiny and presented badly. Very poor value overall and definitely not fine dining.
Outstanding service. Great food, nicely prepared and well presented.
Nice food. Excellent place.
The staff made the graduand feel special and even gave us complimentary dessert for mixing up an order. Very lovely staff who have your satisfaction at heart.
Although not particularly crowded the noise was overwhelming. Three of the four of us are hard of hearing. I could not hear what the waiters and waitresses were saying, even after moving to a quieter table. However, the staff were all very patient and charming.
Food was delicious and good serving sizes, as well as reasonably priced
Staff were very welcoming and friendly
We were welcomed warmly.Service was prompt, efficient but not intrusive.We had the Express Menu which you could tailor to your appetite and budget.As it was a weekend you could have 2 courses- entree & main, or main and dessert - or 3 courses (on weekdays you could just have a main course).each course had a choice of four dishes.I had lamb courgettes, salmon and panacotta.Each dish was beautifully presented, hot (entree & main), flavoursome and just the right amount.Best meal out for a long time
All our meals looked good and were delicious
Ease of booking and rebooking as we had to reschedule- staff pleasant, prompt and knowledgeable. They had a good knowledge of the menu, food preparation and style. Able to talk to the wine list and were just lovely!
A perfect evening- very good food and a stunning environment!
Had a great night. Food was amazing with the Sunset Dinner.
A big high five to the Supervisor on the night. Was a lovely man who made us felt very at home. Very knowledgeable on the view as well :)
Pleasing atmosphere overlooking our beautiful city and no better location to celebrate my Mum's recent 75th birthday and her first one since we lost Dad in July. Thank you Summit restaurant for making my Mum's birthday so special.
Had my 40th birthday there 8 years ago after the drift restaurant we were originally booked on was flooded by the floods in 2011
Then the staff were exceptional as we were looking for another venue to have my party, this week after hearing that the restaurant has been sold to another owner we decided to celebrate our anniversary there one last time before the new owners take over
Waited 5 minutes at the front counter to be served upon arrival. After 20 minutes had our orders taken. Food delivered to our table 50 minutes after we arrived.
Waiters request for our order was "any questions?"
We enjoyed a wonderful meal overlooking the beautiful city of Brisbane.
great views (although the sky is gray) , we had the sunset dinner , we saw the BNE's city from bright to dark. Nice food , 3 courses set are enough for us. excellent service.
Great venue. Excellent food and service. Great atmosphere.
Amazing view and great food. Excellent service.
A unique experience. Very good food and wine. Menu choice was extensive. View of Brisbane at night was exceptional. Ideal for that special occasion.
Very friendly, efficient staff.
Service was prompt and polite.
Only negative was the lack of parking in the vicinity. It took us over 20 minutes to find a park. You have to compete with the day visitors to the lookout.
Ordered a the Wagyu and the Scotch fillet. I enjoyed my wagyu. The scotch fillet however was over cooked. Ordered Med Rare was gray with a very small light pink center.. easily a Med Well steak. When we brought it to our servers attention they were very pleasant and took the plate to be remade. The service was amazing they brought an entire new steak that was also cooked med well. Annoyed and hungry we had to ask for it to be removed from the bill. Overall the experience was great. Left hungry.
A quiet place with a fantastic view. Very attentive staff. Could talk quietly. Food was excellent.
Food was spectacular,fast flavoursome and well presented.
We were not told of items on their menu that they did not have until it came time to actually order our food, then had to take another 5 mins to re-select our mains.
The appetizers were not as described in the menu. (cheese fondue was NOT a fondue!)
We had several different servers come to aid our table, which made it difficult to have to explain what we wanted to all these different people.
The atmosphere was lovely, however, a bit too dark.
The price of the bill superseded the visit.
My feelings are a bit split on this venue. Whilst the food was good and the view was amazing everything else was mediocre.
I took my partner here for his bday (dinner) and although the above measures were met the mains are minimum $40 each and for such a special occasion I wanted a better atmosphere. The tables outside looked like what you'd see in a fast food takeaway joint and everyone was rather casual looking. It is more suited to a casual family lunch gathering than fine dining.
The staff were excellent, polite, attentive and service was prompt, the food was excellent. The view of the city at night was fantastic.
The hosts were very attentive from the moment we walked in. We were sat at a lovely table with a beautiful view of Brisbane. The hosts were attentive but not intrusive. The meal was divine, perfectly prepared with fantastic flavours and generous portions.
Great location, great food, great service, great price
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at lunch and opted for the 2 course Express Lunch which was delightful and we were seated at a table with a wonderful view of the city. The breezes were wonderful and the whole experience, i.e. food and ambience were excellent.
One of our best nights out for dinner
The service was excellent and staff very attentive. The wait for any order or food was just right...we didn’t really wait too long between each corse which kept a nice flow for the night. The food was also exceptional. Presentation was picture worthy and the taste superb. Each course was as great as the last eight down to the dessert. I
My partner and I had an amazing time and I had a lovely birthday dinner. Thank you for making that possible! Would def recommend to everyone.
Beautiful Spot we did the sunset dinner view stunning food fantastic service amazing. There was a wedding downstairs we were celebrating 37 years married & a young couple with child at next table & tables with 8 & more so everyone is welcome. We will be back with family & friends & great meals to choose from yum yum. Staff were so friendly.
It was our first time dining in the restaurant section (We frequent Cafe Kuda) and it was our anniversary.
It was such a beautiiful evening, with such lovely staff from the moment we walked through the doors.
An absolutely amazing experience. Food was delicious and well presented, and the service was outstanding. Many Thanks to all at The Summit Restaurant.
