    A beautiful Art Deco restaurant in the old Gowings building, now the QT hotel. The staff were very friendly, service was good and the food was served promptly. We went before a concert so wasn’t too full but the noise level would be extreme later in the evening. However, the food was excellent though a little pricey considering you have to order sides separately. Went away very satisfied.

    Hey Veronica. Thanks so much for your review we're so glad you liked everything. Come see us again soon! Cheers, Gowings Team

    Great location in a beautiful hotel. Staff very polite but overwhelmed. Most diners were there for a dinner at 6, and then off to a show which started at 7.30. Restaurant was full and management should have been better prepared for this. Food was good overall, but a little expensive. Rib eye steak was scotch fillet, and pork chop quite small and tough. Snapper was excellent, and tuna okay. Would go back as it was a pleasant experience, but staff just need more experience and structure.

    Hey J McGrath, Thanks so much for your feedback. We would love to hear a bit more about your experience if you're open to a chat please drop me an email at hannah_alexander@evt.com Hope to hear from you soon! Gowings Team

    The restaurant was very conveniently located if yo want to have dinner prior to a show at the State Theater. My steak was cooked to perfection and the food selection was modest but appealing to most tastes. I would definitely come back again with friends for dinner and recommend to others.

    Hey Manuel, Thanks do much for your review! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers, Gowings Team

    Interestingly they would not do a side of avocado despite having it on other dishes, otherwise a very good experience, great coffee. The decor is fabulous and the wait staff very friendly

    Gowings Bar & Grill

    Hey Shane, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are always committed to providing the freshest produce available. Sometimes this means running low on some items when they are not available or not up to our standards. We are also committed to keeping our menu items true to descriptions so sounds like although we had avocado were making sure we had enough to provide in dishes that had it as an integral part. Thats a lot of information for you, hopefully next time we'll explain it in person to avoid any confusion. Thanks again and look forward to welcoming you back soon with all the avocado you can handle! Cheers, Gowings Team

    Excellent food and wine list. The wine was slow coming and so our food arrived first and then we needed to chase up for our second bottle and went for a while without any drinks. It was still excellent

    The rib eye steaks were very disappointing. The first round came one too salty, the other one overdone, so we asked to replace them. The second round came really dry, no juice came out of the steak, definitely a way below expectations. The starters were really good though.

    Gowings Bar & Grill

    Last minute booking for a Christmas breakfast made easy! First of all I love the QT hotels brand so I maybe a bit bias. The a la carte breakfast offers all the usuals with a little extras, great products and ingredients cooked to perfection! And the open kitchen offers nice views on the chefs working hard to please your tastebuds. It’s another reason I would highly recommend Gowings Bar & Grill! Chefs are awesome! Great service too!

    A great location for a business lunch just before Christmas. Service was excellent, as was the food. Quiet enough to be able to have a discussion over food and drinks.

    We were a table of 5 for Friday lunch. The vibe was really good and I thought they had a great menu selection. I would definitely recommend for a nice meal out / client meeting

    Great venue and staff were welcoming but we had to wait almost an hour to get our meals - which were delicious but had filled up with the yummy bread and so no desert!
