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.

Fabulous evening! We were not disappointed. Even taking the lift up to the roof top is an experience. We'll be back.

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

A beautiful spot. The view is incredible as is the decor. However, Not sure if there were enough staff. We waited a long time to be served. A bit disappointed.

First time visitor. A bit windy but you can’t change that. We had a fabulous night celebrating our 32rd wedding anniversary. Thanks 🤗🤗

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.
