    We absolutely love dinning at the Waterfront, it never lets us down. The food is absolutely beautiful, the venue is so lovely but without a doubt the thing that stands out from any other restaurant is the wonderful service. The staff are outstanding and always make us feel so welcome and valued.

    Ordered 800gms of Moreton Bays Bugs and served 400gms that were meant to be cooked with garlic butter but was completely cold. Then told the other 400gms on the way. Took 3hrs to serve dinner and service was non existent. Took my wife for her birthday but we left $380 later totally disgusted.

    Great quality and delicious menu. Would go back there again and try some other items on the menu. Seafood Linguini was very nice as was the Prawn and Scallop Chowder.
