    Third visit there for breakfast. To celebrate birthdays. Only compliant for this occasion are small things like no salt and pepper on the table No teaspoon or sugar with coffee Team didn’t explain what beverages you could have or if you could order more than one.

    The service was absolutely terrible. We had a booking but they kept us waiting at the door for 15 minutes before we could come in. Waiters were very scarce and there didn’t seem to be any organisation about it. It was hard to get a drink or any attention. It really spoilt our afternoon.

    So disappointed. Food was lacking in ingredients listed, steak fatty and lots of gristle. Veggies cold. Fish over cooked. Boleyn Choy was stalk only. Had to get up and ask for S&P, drinks menu. Also had issues with breakfast here where ham was included instead of salmon. Told by mgr that this is normal. Not acceptable. Cancelled bookings for breakfast next 2 mornings and also at Signature for tonight.

    The Terrace has spectacular views. Our first table was very wonky so we were moved. This was good because our river view was of people's bums at the higher table outside. The food was good but not excellent. The service was very slow. We ordered our meal after about 20 mins (OK) and then I was told half an hour later that there were no oysters. The substitute sashimi was very ordinary. I can't say that the staff were very attentive or helpful. They seemed to be on autpilot. Prices were as expected but the food quality was good, not great. Next time I'd find a place with a view but better food. The online order asked if it was a special occasion and I ticked "anniversary" (wedding). I still don't know why they asked.

    The food was delicious, the staff lovely and friendly, but the service was dreadful! About an hour before drinks were served, brought the wine without an ice bucket, another 30 minutes before food arrived. It was not very busy. I had dined there previously, had a wonderful meal, so was extremely disappointed with last night's experience. I hope they work out their issues because it could be a great place to dine.

    The Moreton Bay Bug rolls were delicious and the Seafood platter was super fresh with a great heirloom tomato salad. Staff, particularly Logan and Angela, were very attentive and the Manager kindly moved us to a front row high table when one became available. A great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    Worth it for the view. Didn’t try the food although needed to rate it on here?! Ask for a balcony seat. Staff friendly, and had warned us they were short staffed and so service was slow. My only minor negative would be the staff need to wash their uniforms more often - stains and sweat smell isn’t a great look for a bar trying to be posh! I would come back :)

    We had the (cold) seafood platter; it could have been improved with a special seafood sauce. The dessert (chocolate tart) was superb, as was the coffee. We would have preferred to sit outside, with the spectacular view, but these tables seem to be for drinks and snacks. The music level inside was distracting. Overall a good experience, but next time I would like to sit outside, and order from the Graze menu. PS We appreciated the two complimentary glasses of champagne, to celebrate our anniversary!

    The food was delicious, it was just a shame that despite listing on my reservation I was a Ceoliac, mentioning to the waitress and confirming the food was gluten free I was still glutened. The location is excellent, I just feel that if food is listed as GF or DF then more should be done to avoid cross contamination as it make people unwell for days. If you are unable to avoid this, then perhaps consider whether you really can call it GF.

    We had booked a table however there seemed to be a lot of people on the Terrace not at tables, and I assume with no booking, who really impacted on our experience. Our visit was late afternoon on a Saturday for drinks and dinner and we expected it to be busy however this went beyond for those seated at tables on the edge of the Terrace. Although we were only metres from the edge, we couldn't see the view because of a wall of people. At many occasions we had someone nearly knock over the drinks on our table, we were facing into buttocks and then people were rudely talking to their group across our table. The staff were attentive and we had a staff member come and apologise for what was happening however this was not enough for us to want to visit again. We had been looking for a venue for our event however due to our experience we had one drink and left.
