    The staff that were on shift when we arrived were excellent. Change of staff mid afternoon and the service went downhill rapidly. We had to constantly try and get eye contact and you could tell they were purposely avoid so they could just clean tables and polish glasses. We had to collect our drinks from bar which is not a good look. We would have spent more money if we had just been asked what we wanted and if everything was OK occasionally.

    The staff was attentive and we were was seated earlier than our reservation. The views was fab as we had clear blue skies. The breakfast was a set menu for $35 and was worth the value together with the ambience. The venue was not too busy. Recommend going back with friends again.

    Atmosphere was lovely and we enjoyed ourselves, the only downside was that service was lacking in previous times we had been. It was not the usual attentive service, we watched ages for our drink and food orders to be taken and struggled to get anyones attention - which left us feeling a bit invisible.

    My husband and I went to the Terrace for our anniversary and sat on the balcony. After having mains we were told that we would have to settle our bill and order and pay for any other drink or food at the bar, as people have ‘done a runner in the past’. I have never stayed at a 5star hotel where I have had to go to the bar to order while having dinner and I must say I was very disappointed.

    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.
