    Fish was over cooked. Gnocchi was bland and dry. I was overcharged by 1 glass of wine & staff did not know what was in the dishes we were eating. Very unhappy

    Did this high tea three years ago. Still lovely but would be great to have a booking earlier than 3.30pm as it was getting a little chilly and dark throughout the sitting. This set time is probably due to COVID-19 restrictions though.

    Ordered the seafood platter which was fresh and tasty. Great atmosphere on a quiet Wednesday evening along the river.

    The location is definitely the biggest selling point. Even on a windy day we enjoyed sitting outside with views of the river and Story Bridge. The staff were friendly and professional. The food from the Sunday brunch menu was tasty, portion sizes relatively small and prices quite high. $5 for a piccolo seems a little excessive. A pleasant time out but probably wouldn’t rush to go back.

    The steak was absolutely amazing. Properly cooked to medium rare. Had creme brulee for dessert, which was really good too! Would definitely recommend

    The food was excellent and service was great. The Lamb shoulder was enormous, can truly be shared among three people. Everything was good . Highly recommend.

    Nice place, good food and very nice staff. Octopus was tasty, and the barramundi was delicious. Nerea, the waiter helped us with the plates and was very kind.

    Was nicely surprised by the friendly staff & quality food. The river outlook was stunning & the meal prepared in quick time. Maybe a wider choice of wine especially the Sav B for the diners who only want a glass. Would recommend.

    Until it came to pay the bill we had enjoyed our Sunday brunch. However, the discount we were expecting had not been applied because we had not ordered from the a la carte menu. Although this is stipulated on the website we have never encountered a restaurant which does not mention at the time of ordering that there are exceptions to the discount. We hope they will make future patrons who book through the fork aware of this.

    One of our favourite open air fine dining experiences in Brisbane. Great food, wine and service, while overlooking the city lights along the Brisbane River and Story Bridge. The perfect place to bring visitors.

    we are German and on worldsouroundig with our Sailyacht. If we go dining it must be a fine dining, but Patina Restaurant isn't it. The only we have found in Brisbane is Alchemy and Black Bird since we are here.
