Great Sunday afternoon spent here. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys buffet style meals. Staff attentive without being overly close.

Food was great ( had seafood buffet) but service left a lot to be desired. The basics are not there. Empty salt and pepper shakers, seldom clearing of plates, dirty tables surfaces. It’s not party hard to get this right and it should be pretty straight forward in a five star hotel but it just wasn’t there. Our waiter was good when he turned up but he wasn’t nearly attentive enough. We had to ask for water refills and to get a heater near the table. Personally I was most disappointed in general with staff. It seemed difficult for everything. From the moment I arrived in the car park, the attendant didn’t know of the August parking offer, didn’t offer to park the car ( would have gladly paid for this service). It extended to wait staff when I asked to move tables because their was a large noisy crowd where we had been allocated a seat, wait staff seldom cleared tables, cashier didn’t know of parking offer and sent me to concierge who then sent me to reception to get parking ticket validated. Honestly there’s something a miss with this establishment in terms of staffing. Sad but true....it wasn’t particularly busy either. I won’t go back...there’s other offers around Brisbane and the GC that I will try next time.

It would have been nice to have a glass of champagne included in the price, as the bottles of wine/ champagne were vetry expensive. We also asked for table unobstructed view of the water as it was a special occasion, which I was told was organised when they rang to confirm. However we were seated behind a table with young children which was very disappointing.

The morning high tea was great. Some background music would have been lovely. Also, we weren't presented with a bill so we accidentally walked out without paying and had to ring back later to cover payment. The staff seemed distracted with setup by this stage.

About Brasserie on the River

Riverside dining They recommend booking at Brasserie on the River, and no wonder – the views across the Brisbane River are a real drawcard, and not just for hotel guests at the Stamford which the restaurant is part of. Punters also flock here for the buffet featuring seasonal specials such as king prawns and oysters, cold and hot dishes and two roasts from the carvery along with an extensive dessert selection including Australian cheeses with nuts and dried fruit. There is also an a la carte menu option (dubbed the ‘Irresistible’ and no wonder, with fare such as Mooloolaba king prawns and wagyu beef burger on offer), and the ever-popular ‘Brisbane Morning Tea’ served alfresco on the terrace – all elegance and sophistication with dainty delicacies served on a tiered silver stand. Best dish: Seafood Buffet!
