One of the best traditional fine dining experiences in Brisbane and great food and service.

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Tue, 7th May 2019 (9)

The food and service are excellent and the tapas choices are a great option. They have nailed the atmosphere in this new venue perfectly. It's just a great place to be.

Florentine Italian Grill and Wine Room

Newstead

David dined on Tue, 30th Apr 2019 (9)

Their meat is absolutely outstanding. They brag about best steak in Brisbane and they are probably right. An Italian breed of cattle grown in Victoria and grass fed. Their seafood and dessert were also excellent. This restaurant is a surprise discovery.

Brisbane C'est Bon French Restaurant

Woolloongabba

David dined on Tue, 23rd Apr 2019 (9)

Wonderful food and a very French atmosphere. The food is consistently good with plenty of parking at the rear. I always enjoy going there.

Excellent restaurant.

Spizzico

Kangaroo Point

David dined on Fri, 8th Mar 2019 (6)

Pleasant atmosphere and good service. Food very average. The veal was tough and lacking flavour and at $38 was seriously overpriced for this quality.

Peasant

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Tue, 26th Feb 2019 (8)

The Walnut Restaurant & Lounge Bar

Brisbane City

David dined on Fri, 28th Dec 2018 (8)

The food, service and atmosphere are very good and consistently so. The restaurant is beautifully furnished in a conservative style providing a quiet, comfortable ambience.

Barolos Ristorante Italiano

Toowong

David dined on Tue, 11th Dec 2018 (7)

Overall, a very pleasant experience. Initial entree of calamari was overloaded with salt. Swapped out for a bug entree which was very tasty although the bug meat was a little overcooked. Main course of duck was very good and the chips were as good as they get. The dessert was three types of mouse. It was tasty but the three types looked the same and tasted much the same. Pointless exercise. They should look for contrast in looks and taste.

The Walnut Restaurant & Lounge Bar

Brisbane City

David dined on Fri, 7th Dec 2018 (8)

I enjoyed a 4 course dinner. The oysters were fresh and magnificent and all food was very good and well presented. Service was first class. Ambience is classic fine dining.

A consistently excellent restaurant with great atmosphere to boot.

Moda Restaurant

A great restaurant. Always excellent food and service.

Six Acres Restaurant & Bar

Bowen Hills

David dined on Wed, 9th May 2018 (9)

Part of Rydges next to RNA Showground. Food and service were surprisingly good. On-street parking was easy. A real find.

Otto Brisbane

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Thu, 12th Apr 2018 (9)

Food, service and ambience always outstanding at Otto.

NEST Restaurant and Bar

It has more of a noisy cafeteria atmosphere but the service was good & professional and the food was surprisingly good.

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Wed, 28th Mar 2018 (9)

Excellent food and atmosphere, as usual. Last night the service was very slow which was out of character.

The French Bistrot

West End

David dined on Tue, 20th Mar 2018 (8)

A lovely casual atmosphere in down-town West End. Yummy food, great service and exceptionally good value.

Bacchus

South Bank

David dined on Wed, 14th Mar 2018 (9)

Fine dining at its best. Very tasteful, more formal ambience with excellent food and service on a consistent basis.

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Tue, 13th Feb 2018 (9)

Food and service generally excellent. Main courses of suckling pig last night, normally a standout dish were dry and lacking normal flavour. very unusual for this restaurant. Still one of the best restaurants in town.

Otto Brisbane

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Tue, 6th Feb 2018 (9)

The food and service were typically outstanding. Otto has probably the best ambience/views of any restaurant in Brisbane.

French Martini

South Bank

David dined on Wed, 31st Jan 2018 (8)

A great traditional French restaurant with lovely ambience. Food was very good and the wait staff excellent. A pleasant casual atmosphere and very good value. All-in-all, a great find.

Prive 249

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Tue, 16th Jan 2018 (3)

Very Ordinary. The menu was straight from Thyme but served in a quite atmosphere. My rib fillet was ordered blue and served medium-rare on a bed of roast vegetables spooned from the smorgasbord. Charged $49 for an average quality piece of meat. Prive needs to lift its food to a higher level, as it used to be, or it is irrelevant. Service was very good.

Kabuki

Brisbane CBD

David dined on Wed, 10th Jan 2018 (8)

Very tasty food, pleasant ambience. The chefs are very skilled and entertaining but not the place for a quiet evening. A blend of good food and theatre. Service is good and well worth a visit.

The Walnut Restaurant & Lounge Bar

Brisbane City

David dined on Wed, 3rd Jan 2018 (8)

The food and ambience were excellent. The service was professional and friendly but needs to pick up the pace a bit.

Brisbane C'est Bon French Restaurant

Woolloongabba

David dined on Wed, 20th Dec 2017 (9)

A great little restaurant. Always excellent food and service with a delightful French atmosphere. A very good range of French wines.

Two Small Rooms

Toowong

David dined on Thu, 3rd Aug 2017 (6)

Wait time for each course was 45 - 50 minutes and the wait staff were pleasant but clearly untrained, inexperienced and inattentive. Food was good and ambience was very pleasant.

Motion Dining

Brisbane

David dined on Tue, 11th Jul 2017 (7)

Very fresh oysters and lovely mussel entree. The meat in the main course was excellent but the vegetables lacked imagination although were very fresh. Atmosphere and seating very good but why they serve butter in airline style plastic capsules is beyond me. The service is excellent.

Nickel Kitchen & Bar

Fortitude Valley

David dined on Tue, 30th May 2017 (5)

Mixed service standards. Great atmosphere. Food well presented but not up to expectations.

Bacchus

Obsession

South Bank

David dined on Wed, 6th Jul 2016 (5)

Did not live up to its own marketing hype. Left all doors open on a freezing night with westerly winds. Had to be moved to a back corner of the restaurant to avoid hypothermia.

Brisbane C'est Bon French Restaurant

Woolloongabba

David dined on Wed, 29th Jun 2016 (9)

Dell Ugo New Farm

New Farm

David dined on Thu, 28th May 2015 (3)

Web sire menu differed rom actual menu. Entrees were fine. My veal main course was dry and tasteless. Dreadful. The owner asked about the meal, I told him the truth (politely) and he turned and left. No apologies and no offer to exchange for a different meal.

Patina Restaurant at Customs House

Brisbane CBD

Very poor meal. One oyster was dodgy. Entrees good. Main course terrible. I formed the view that the chef just can't put food together for a menu. Chips soggy. Very disappointing evening.

Birdcage Restaurant

Woolloongabba
