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?"

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.

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The price of the bill superseded the visit.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 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.

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.

Der Service war leider ziemlich daneben für ein Restaurant der gehobenen Klasse. Wir hatten einen Cocktail bestellt. Aber der erste Gang kam noch vor dem Cocktail. Wir sagten dann, dass wir den Cocktail nach dem Essen trinken würden, das würde so gehen versprach man uns. Wir wollten dann eine Flasche Wein zum Essen bestellen, bekamen dann die Antwort ob wir nicht lieber unseren Cocktail haben wollen, dieser sei schon fertig und würde im Eisfach gekühlt!!! Unglaublich dass es so was gibt!

My second visit to Massimo, and I was once again pleased with food & service quality. The staff recognised us, remembered that I’d ordered the same dish last visit, and were friendly without being intrusive. Try the whole prawns! Zucchini Fritters are a must do as well.

The menu for the fixed course dinner is deceptive. It looks like you order one item from each of the areas for the fixed price. The waiter was so self absorbed that they did not inform us that there were extra fees for some of the items on the menu. We ordered the dinner package for two of us. We did the choice of Entree, then of small main, then the desert and then added one of the side plates. Both of us assumed that the fourth item (the side plate was included. We ordered the four items.

We had a Sunset Dinner which is for the early birds... 3 courses with 3 choices at least for each! It was delicious and very ample servings. The staff made a special effort with dessert as it was for my birthday.
One of the mains wasn’t quite perfect t ( through no fault of the chef), but this was dealt with really easily. Great staff!

Lovely spot. We had the express lunch here in mid August 2019 (three course meal was $49). The food was good. The views are stunning. The service was very good - staff were always there when needed.

Good experience and food.
The chicken was dry, and the bruschetta didn't excite.
The steak, fish and pork belly was awesome, along with the truffle mash potatoes and roasted beets.

Unfortunately, I cannot avoid identifying staff along ethnic background lines: the Korean and Australian staff were professional and friendly, the (Thai?) male/ female? wore hoop earrings) staff wasn't friendly or gave off a professional vibe at all, including telling us to keep a toddler quiet (in a completely empty restaurant: 2:30 pm, only a wedding reception outside on the deck).

The Summit has a unique and spectacular location, it was easy to book online & I like the period architecture

The staff were very welcoming and had attention to detail with each point of contact knowing it was our birthdays among other things. The waiting staff member came at good intervals as we were left alone for the most part but she knew when to attend the table. The food (we had the duck dish and the black angus ribs dish) was good quality and good portion size.

Best views in town, and lovely ambiance.

Service was great as well.

Unfortunately found the food to be underwhelming for the second time in a row...

The onion soup ordered was very strong in flavour and one could not eat a whole bowl it.

The mains were average; I had duck but the dish was fairly bland in flavour, but also way too salty.

The dessert menu was disappointingly limited with only four options, none of which were very appealing and I’m an avid dessert lover. Need more variety.
