This has to be the most horrendous dining experience we have endured. The food lacked excitement and creatively, as for the service that was a complete joke. Our so called waiter was on another planet and was in a hurry to get us out of the place ASAP
No excuses 3 Blue Ducks for the prices you charge we would have expected much more. Never again.

It was my 4th visited last Friday (18/09/2020). I had 5 gusts over. Food & service has downgraded drastically. We have to top up water and wine ourself a few times. Waiter sent 2 times wrong food to our table. The cold prawn entree with chilli mayo was very ordinary and unfortunately we ordered 5 serves. You can buy exactLy same quality of cooked prawns from Morgans seafood for one third of price. The mayo chilli sauce is very average. Friend’s main dish grilled chicken was much worth than Landos. My lamb shoulder was over cooked and dry. I was surprisingly embarrassed and disappointed as a host.

Lamb was delicious

Desert was just sugar

The venue was nice and the food was okay except they did not wash the spinach and it was full of dirt. I was still picking it out of my teeth when I got home. Not exactly worth the $200 for two starters and two meals with two non-alcoholic drinks. The staff were wonderful and very attentive.

Maybe it’s not fair to judge it against the other Blue Ducks restaurants, but if they are what you are expecting then you really need to adjust your expectations. The quality is good, but very different. Much heavier rather than the lightness fans of Bronte, Roseberry and Byron and come to love. Service was also a bit on the slow side. As for atmosphere, the view Can’t make up for the fact it is in a hotel. Sure, a fancy hotel, but I’m not sure who thought a slick W Hotel and the relaxed charm of TBD were the ideal blend is baffling. But hey, still good though

Restaurant feel like a cafe with hard flooring and tables. Bread was stale. Entree beetroot was nice. Main of mussels lukewarm with overpowering coconut that didn’t complement the dish, gnocchi was ok, not amazing. Desert rhubarb ok but chocolate mousse was terrible.

I must say, I was a little disappointed in this venue! Not much ambience, no music and the wind whistling past and rattling the glass doors was very annoying during dinner. I had the beetroot entree and whole fish. The entree was lovely, although small and the whole fish was bland and tasteless. Not well presented either. Service was pleasant although a little too much in your face for me. We felt rushed even though the restaurant was not that busy for a Saturday. The fit-out is lovely. Very high end! Probably wouldn’t go back as there is other much better restaurants in Brisbane.

Service was good as staffs were very friendly.
Food was ok but the size was not enough, also as $90 - 3 courses meals, we expected it should be more special or valuable. Cocktail was nice, we recommended Lavender one.
Location and venue were good as we enjoyed the beautiful city view during the dinner.

We we’re excited about our booking but almost from the start, when our waiter forgot our drinks order, we were disappointed. We waited an hour and a half for our main course, the restaurant air conditioning was set so cold, that the food became cold whilst we ate. The entree was the best part of the meal (we only had entree and main). When you pay a premium price for a meal, you expect everything, including the service to be excellent! It clearly wasn’t. When we were asked at the end of the meal how everything was, we outlined all these things but there was absolutely no attempt to compensate us. We recognise the restaurant was reopening after Covid restrictions. Surely all the more reason to get all this absolutely spot on. We won’t be going back.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this fabulous restaurant. The food is a culinary joy; everything was delicious and every detail attended to- just completely fabulous. Literally a taste sensation of multiple harmonious complex flavours- from dips to desserts. The waiters were fun and charming but casually professional - and the decor is beautifully modern with splendid river views. Cocktails were nice. Tables are very very well-spaced and waiters wore masks as a courtesy to guests. No criticisms at all but do note that they open at 5.30 and if you get there earlier you wait for them! It's worth it. Highly highly recommend.

While the food was excellent the service was non-existent at times. There were not many diners and we were the last table left and had to flag down a chef to find a waiter to get coffee and pay the bill.

The venue was especially noisy as the glass windows where pulled open to create a semi al fresco experience but the restaurant overlooks the riverside freeway and as it was raining the road noise was high. Not so bad as to make conversation difficult but it certainly detracted from the ambience.

For a high class restaurant in a premium hotel I felt the experience did not match the expectation.
