Friendly, helpful staff. Interior and decor is stunning. Loved the music selection on the night we dined. Food servings was very small. I had the duck confit. Small but tasty.
Drinks and cocktails are quite pricey.
Overall I enjoyed my experience there due to the beautiful city views, ambience of the place. Those aspects more than made up for the food. Will go again.

Very upmarket, Lift was interesting, there where 5 of us, so the seats we had to sit in were metal no cushions, it was uncomfortable, not the seats to sit in and have Breakfast and start your day with. I didn't not know how the Breakfast worked, I found it hard to understand our waiter. Breakfast a buffet only scramble eggs was sloppy, not knowing you could ask off the Menu for other eggs also, Bacon very fatty not lean. Hot drinks, it was not that busy, but took a while to get our hot drinks. It really need, to be better, the seating and service. A little disappointed over all. I did a No for recommend, I am sure it could improve, I have traveled a fair bit, and had Buffet Breakfast before a bit disappointing.

The Terrace is a beautiful and relaxing location for lunch. I love the casual table setting where you can spend hours sitting, chatting and enjoying the views. Food was great and the service was extremely friending and attentive.

This was my first visit to The Terrace at The Emporium Hotel South Bank and I was more than thrilled.
It definitely had the WOW factor from the ground floor entry, the lift interior, the bowls of fresh flowers and to the view at The Terrace, looking out towards Brisbane over the Brisbane River.
The food was interesting , various tastes. We shared small plates/ entrees as we didn't partake in a main meal. what we had was more than sufficient.
We will definitely be back.

my wife had the barramundi and it was dry and tasteless. My rib on the bone was good, but it had been given to somebody else (we had a group booking) and I had to wait for another steak

I’m the type of guy that won’t order an expensive steak because more often than not it’s disappointing. This wasn’t the case, the steak was beautifully cooked and well presented. The truffle fries were delicious as well. Drinks weren’t too expensive and the venue itself was very chill and exactly what we were after.

Amazing view. Great for a casual or special occasion drink. Here for breakfast on a very quiet Fathers Day. Standard buffet breakfast, quite expensive given the choices. Staff attentive at first, but neglected to clear plates regularly so a pile became apparent with limited table space.

This was the second time I had been to the Emporium in 2 weeks, bringing back a second friend. As with the first encounter I found it thoroughly enjoyable, and would definitely be back.
I don't reside in Brisbane, am here for work, but enjoyed the atmosphere immensely. Even though I am scared of heights. :)

The Terrace is all about the view, ambiance, style, comfort and wow factor. The food is good, the drink list is adequate and the service is excellent. I went on a beautiful sunny winter's day and it was the perfect place to spend a lazy lunch. It's a sure winner - I can't wait to go back.

My wife was due for a baby the next day so i wanted to take her somewhere nice for dinner the night before so i took her to The Terrace. It was by far the best restaurant we've been to in Brisbane. 10/10 guys, we genuinally loved it!

My only disappointment was that the huge glass sliding doors were not open the day we were there for lunch due to tile repairs being attended to on the balcony. Will go back and would like to stay at the hotel to allow access to the rooftop infinity pool.

The Terrace website's online menu does not match menu at The Terrace. The food was awful, don't bother. The food was also expensive for the small portions. It's too loud for a restaurant & too uncomfortable seating wise to be a bar. It's a sensory over the top mess.

Would recommend for views and atmosphere but the food needs a lot of improvement, and while the bar staff are fantastic, the floor staff aren’t overly attentive or friendly

We recently enjoyed a delicious lunch here with a couple setting off on a cruise. The Terrace provided the perfect place for a catch up chat and farewell celebration. It was very peaceful, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. The service and views were equally remarkable. The lift to the rooftop is also a bit of fun... an experience in itself. We have already recorded it to others.
