Found the food really good. Recommended.
Great service, delicious food and amazing views of the Brisbane River.
Delicious food & fantastic service. Staff are awesome.
We were impressed by the both personal and professional service including recognition of our wedding anniversary
We were a table of 6 It took nearly 1hr to get our meals . I asked three times how long our meals would be and told five minutes the first time. 15mins the second time then 5 mins again. The food was delicious but the service non existent. I had not dined there before & would not dine there again.
The pork cutlet was wonderful
Also the gnocchi was too
Would definitely come back and recommend
Fantastic staff and fantastic food .. nice views of the riber
Our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Very happy to be seated with s great view of the River.
Ying was exceptionally welcoming and informative and made our experience even more special.
Thank you for the stellar review! We are so happy you had an amazing 25th Wedding anniversary, and that our amazing staff (especially Ying!) made your night one to remember! Thank you! We will definitely pass on the great feedback and can’t wait to have you back in the restaurant soon.
We were celebrating my daughters 12th Birthday. Our server (I’m sorry I can’t remember her name - Asian heritage) was wonderful and my daughter was thrilled when she received a hand written card wishing her a happy Birthday and also a candle on her dessert. Our waitress went above as beyond.
The food and service was exceptional Thank you for a lovely night.
Thanks for the wicked 5 star review and for choosing Three Blue Ducks Brisbane for your daughter’s birthday! We are thrilled that we could be a part of this special day and that our spectacular staff and amazing food could make her 12th birthday even better! We hope to welcome you back soon. Maybe for the next special occasion!
We booked into the Three Blue Ducks Brisbane expecting a great culinary experience and we were not disappointed in the least. Jan and I have eaten at the Three Blue Ducks farm in Byron Bay and loved that immensely.
Our dinner consisted of two starters and a main. The Kingfish and the Scallops to start. Both dishes were absolutely excellent. The flavors were sublime.
For our main we chose the Pork Cutlet with Parsnip Puree. Again this was an excellent dish.
I enjoyed a dry gin martini to start and Jan had an Old Fashioned. Both drinks were exemplary. Wine with the main was a very nice Cab Sauv.
The service was absolutely great with the wait staff and the floor manager hovering to see to our every needs. Ambiance was amazing with the views across the river to South Bank.
We can't wait to go back to the Three Blue Ducks!!
Hiya Patrick! Thanks so much for sharing your 5 star Ducks experience! Our chefs at both venues work carefully to create humble, flavorful and generous meals across the menu. The Pork Cutlet is definitely a fan favorite! We will certainly pass on your feedback to not only our kitchen but our stellar bar team as well! Certainly look forward to welcoming you back again soon and thank you again!
More cafe style than fine dining. Very casual and felt like a hotel restaurant rather than an independent restaurant. Good portion sizes.

We invite you to contact our team directly so we can discuss this with you further. You can reach us at email@example.com Thanks again for sharing your feedback; without it we cannot improve.

Awesome service and a view. The cocktails aren’t cocktails though. It was only pure alcohol and un drinkable. If you are wanting a nice drink to go with your meal I wouldn’t order off the cocktail list.
Thanks AlyD for the review following your recent visit, whilst it was great to read that you loved the top service provided by our team and the amazing stellar Brisbane River views, we’re really sorry and disappointed to hear that our cocktails missed the mark on the evening. It is certainly our intention to help make every visit memorable. We take all feedback seriously and will be sure to pass on all comments to the team for review. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
I felt like the waiter wanted to be spoken to each time he attended our table, we were happy for him to work around the table as we chatted.
We ordered 1 dessert for 2 of us to share and he rapidly placed 4 spoons on the table.
We had long heavy coats on, it would have been nice for staff to offer to hang these, they slipped down on the floor.
We were seated up close to a glass door that went out on the verandah, when guests went outside it was freezing cold and we needed to close the door
Thanks PetrinaF for taking the time to share your honest experience. We always hope to provide great food and warm service, with an ambience to match. We pride ourselves on making occasions memorable; We do appreciate your constructive feedback and we have passed this on to the team for training purposes to ensure we improve in our service delivery. We would appreciate discussing this with you further and invite you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The food is not at the expected standard for the price you pay. Waiters have no idea of what 5 star service is. Plates not being cleared, drinks not being offered regularly. Food was rather dull and flavourless. Plates were messy..beautiful plating should be part of the experience. Amazing views from the restaurant. Nice valet parking by W Brisbane. But overall it was an underwhelming experience for my 50th birthday! Should have listened to the google reviews. Felt that this was just one commercial operation with little attention to detail. Limited dessert selection, none of which appealed to us so we left without it and went elsewhere. Can't you even offer a gelato or sorbet if customers dont any want of your dessert selection? I said it was my 50th in my booking and you did nothing to make it special.

We at Three Blue Ducks are always striving to offer sensationally amazing food and service, and we are very pleased to hear that we made your visit a memorable one!

Paying the bill at the table can be embarrassing. I would suggest rather than bringing the credit card machine to the table for payment, a question could be asked on how the bill would liked to be settled.
Thanks Geoff for the 4 stars! We are overjoyed that you liked the amazing food and great service of Three Blue Ducks Brisbane. Thank you also for the feedback about fixing the bill. We’ll pass this on to the team! We hope to see you again soon!
The food was worth every cent. I had the gnocchi and it was delicious.
Thank you for the 5 stars Alicia! We’re excited to hear that you had such a great dining experience with us and stoked to see you loved the Gnocchi. Our chefs work carefully to create humble, flavorful and generous meals across the menu. Very glad to hear our delicious food made your visit a memorable one. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
We highly enjoyed our experience there; our waitress was really friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, and the food was beautifully presented and tasted really good. It's a little lacking in ambience, but I think it would be better in summer time.
Good Day Evie! Thank you so much for the stellar review, we are ecstatic to hear you had an amazing experience at our Brisbane City venue. Our Chefs are amazing at celebrating fresh & local produce and are always curating new and exciting dishes to reflect seasonality. We are troubled to hear however, that the atmosphere was somewhat lacking. We will raise this with the team for improvement. Thank you again and we hope to see you back again soon.
Overpriced and relatively underwhelming food. Thank goodness for the view and the good service staff..
Thanks for the review following your recent visit, it was great to read that you loved the great service provided by our team and the stunning Brisbane river views.

Great venue and wonderful service!
Delicious! Couldn’t fault the food. Plates were very generous and we chose to share our main meals. This made the meals very affordable. The coconut custard desert was amazing for dairy free people. Will be visiting again.
Thanks for the amazing review. The team here at Three Blue Ducks work hard to ensure everyone’s dietaries are met and strive to be accommodating as best we can. We are glad you enjoyed our amazing flavors and generous portion sizes. Can’t wait to have you back dining with us!
Lovely restaurant,excellent location..walking distance from our accomm
Thank you Lazza for your glowing review! We greatly appreciate the lovely comments and are glad we could provide you with a sensational Ducks experience, we hope to see you back soon!
Has to be one of Brisbane's best with great ambiance, excellent outlook, first class service and top quality food
Hi KeithB, thanks so much for sharing your 5 star Ducks experience! Our chefs work carefully to create humble, flavorful and generous meals across the menu. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed our great ambiance, amazing food and service and of course our stellar views which made your visit a memorable one. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
We were really looking forward to the the 3 course menu, I was disappointed to find out they had changed the menu only 2 days before and no longer offered this option. The $69 bone in rib-eye was the most expensive steak I’ve ever had, but certainly not the best. Mushrooms were great. Service was great.
Hi RayW, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience. We’re very sorry to hear you found the food & menu disappointing on your special evening, this is not indicative of the high-quality dishes the restaurant prides itself on. We would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you personally to discuss your feedback further, if this is possible please do email us at email@example.com to arrange a time to chat.Thanks again and we hope to hear from you soon.
Beautiful, well priced relaxed and excellent service. My only comment would be not enough lighting to read the menu where we were seated - a minor detail but the only constructive feed back I could add. The location parking service quality and pricing are bang on. Good value and the taste of the meal! Excellent.
Thanks Cazz so much for the amazing 5 star review. We are pleased to know that our great food, helpful service, parking, pricing and value of meals made your visit a memorable one. Three Blue Ducks have brought their laidback nature to a CBD location through an open setting inviting the outdoors in, we appreciate the feedback with reference to lighting. I will pass this message onto our Restaurant Manager who will most definitely look into this. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Three Blue Ducks was the perfect restaurant to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary with our teenage children. Not only was it exciting to be there, the service and food were exceptional. My husband and I are still dreaming of our delicious meals. Three Blue Ducks, thanks for a wonderful evening!
Thanks for the 5 star rating and thank you for sharing your Ducks experience KellieH! We’re thrilled to know that you enjoyed your recent meals with us and thankful you chose us to spend your perfect 20th Wedding Anniversary appreciating and enjoying our delicious meals. I will pass this on to our amazing chefs. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

We enjoyed our dining experience here. My only comment is that my preference is to have my bread warm as aposed to cold bread for the starters.
Staff were friendly and efficient.
Thank you for the 5 star rating KarenK! We’re stoked to know that you had such a great dining experience with us. Thank you for your feedback in regards to the bread; we will be sure to pass this on to our chefs. We’re also pleased to know that our helpful team were a standout for you. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Set menu sat night awesome value, food very high quality
Thank you for sharing your Ducks experience DamonD! We’re thrilled to know that you enjoyed your recent meal with us and appreciated the value and quality which we pride ourselves on. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon to try even more dishes from our ever-changing menu.
The ambiance was pleasant as we had taken my mother in law for lunch (late Mother’s Day 💐)
The waitress was pleasant, collegial and well presented.
The meal was impeccably impressive.
Thank you for the 5 star rating Mik3! We’re fueled to know that you had such a great late Mother’s Day celebration with us. We pride ourselves on our great food and helpful service and are pleased to know we made your experience a memorable visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We were two couples looking for an impromptu Friday night out. Started with some drinks at the W pool bar, wanted to stay a little longer and 3BD were happy to accomodate. Tried the set special and we were not disappointed… was absolutely superb with very large servings and complimentary sides we couldn’t finish. Highly recommended. We’ll be back again (and again!).
Thanks for sharing your experience with us Craig. We love the 5 star review. We’re glad to hear that our hearty and generously portioned meals catered to your group perfectly. It is great to know that your impromptu evening out with us was such a winner! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Servings were huge, amazing food and service. Will be coming back next time we are in Brisbane
Thank you for the 5 stars Greg! We’re stoked to know that you had such a great dining experience with us. We are pleased to know that our great food and helpful service made your visit a memorable one. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
Love the vibes, service, drinks and food. I definitely recommend the bugs on the entree and I loved the gluten free/ vegetarian Indian spiced cauliflower for main. Great options for everyone!
Thank you for the 5 star rating JasmineH. We’re stoked to know that you enjoyed our Ducks atmosphere, service, drinks and food! Our Chefs carefully curate dishes that champion our locally sourced ingredients, we’re happy to hear that our meals catered to all dietaries too. We have now changed into our new menus this week and hope you decide to return to dine with us in the near future. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We were a group of 6 and our entrees are beautiful but it went downhill from there. Mains of steak was tasteless and dry - there was so much charcoal on the meat that was all that could be tasted. the chicken was ok - just standard, would have been more enjoyable if it was a breast rather than a leg. Lamb shoulder was underwhelming and something you would order from a pub or slow cook house, the meat had no flavour. The desserts were not great, we sent back all 4 sesame seeds and white chocolate dessert, this was slop on a plate and totally uneatable. The sorbet was ok, the chucks of pineapple seemed out of place with the sorbet and didn’t compliment the sorbet- not the best.
Overall all 6 of us were extremely disappointed in the menu and the food for such a stunning venue I absolutely expected quality food. To have this attached to the brand of the Marriott was shocking. Being a Member having traveled the world staying at the Marriott chain this is the worst meal I have experienced at restaurant attached to the hotel.
Thanks for your feedback Judith. While we’re glad the view and entrees were a great start to your evening; we’re sorry to learn your visit went downhill from there. Our Chefs carefully curate dishes that champion our locally sourced ingredients. The food quality that you have described though, does not reflect the quality we pride ourselves on. For this, we apologize. We invite you to discuss this further at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope we can welcome you back in the future.
Three Blue Ducks Feedback - Dinner Sat 22 May 21
I want to compliment our table waiter, Scott, who was attentive and did very well given the number of patrons. He checked on us regularly and tried to sort out the issues with our meal.
I need to complain about the food service. We arrived at 6.35pm and placed our order by 6.45pm (a two course dinner, entrée shared and was the plan for dessert).
The entree was served quite quickly and arrived by 7pm; it was well presented and delicious. Unfortunately, the mains did not arrive until nearly 8pm and were missing the side dishes. 5-10 mins later, a waiter noticed and flagged with the kitchen, but it was another 10 mins (nearly 20 mins after mains were served) that the sides arrived. The next issue was that after finishing the meal, there was no attempt to clear the plates; after 15 mins, I had to walk to find a staff member and ask that they be cleared and could the dessert be served. 10 mins later, the plates were cleared, but no sign of dessert.
At 9.15pm, we gave up waiting for dessert, asked the bill and left.
The restaurant was busy, but on a Sat night I would think this is predicted and that staffing would be appropriate for this. There seemed to be only two staff in the kitchen which is likely why the food took so long and there was only about 3-4 wait staff so hard for these people to deal with the volume of diners.
I will say that the food was delicious and well prepared, so the chefs should be thanked for their efforts.
Hi Mijoby, Thanks for sharing your honest feedback. It’s great to hear Scott was a standout for you. We’ll be sure to pass on your praise. We’re also stoked that you enjoyed your delicious well prepared meals. We are sorry to hear however that the food service and timing was not up to par. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you further and invite you to reach out at email@example.com We hope to hear from you soon.
Unfortunately service was slow. Food took forever to come out and was quite average. However, portions were large.
Hi MakanBne, Thanks for sharing your honest feedback with us. Although we pride ourselves on our helpful and attentive service; it is disheartening to hear that we fell short in this respect on your recent visit. We invite you to reach out to our team to discuss this further at firstname.lastname@example.org We hope we can have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.
We found service very slow, food extremely oily and prices high.
Hi Louise, Thank you for sharing your honest feedback with us regarding food quality and prices. Without it we cannot improve for future. The experience you have described is not one we are proud of and for this, we apologize. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you further.
