    Wonderful experience from the welcome at the door through to the Chef’s recommended-menu and the service. Very happy with the staff, food, drinks and service level A+++

    Beautiful venue with view of the Brisbane river and Story Bridge. Efficient and friendly service. Beautifully presented dishes. Some interesting flavour pairings which I’d describe as a mix of Asian-inspired and modern Australian. Would highly recommend the Mussels & Clams, and the chocolate tart with passion fruit sorbet - a standout dessert!

    Service was terrible. I had to go to the bar to order a drink after waiting at my table for ages. When they did take drinks orders they brought out the wrong wine and then tried to blame us for ordering the wrong wine. Took ages to get someone to bring us our bill. I just had the impression the service staff weren't very experienced. There are plenty of other restaurants in Brisbane at that price point that have far better service.

    The menu has changed significantly. No potato sides on the menu ...: when the main dishes used to be steak and sides of potato. Look up the menu before you go!

    Lacking Atmosphere- very quite for a Friday lunchtime! Food was better than average but I did expect better for the price. But the service was attentive, and friendly.

    Food service was a little rushed. We had barely finished our entree when mains were served.

    Had to ask several times for a server to come. One lady spoke so fast after she left we all said so what part of that did you get. Thankfully between us all we got different parts to work out what to order

    Food was excellent for a sharing. wine was to expensive for diners who want a basic rang. Suggest the introduction of a House Wine option which would cater for diners who enjoy the food but don’t need expensive wine . Nf

    The food is pretty good (especially the steaks), but the service, time for food to arrive, and value is a bit average.

    Booked through the fork to redeem the $20 voucher; they did not apply it to our bill and I only realised this after I had left the restaurant

It’s Smokin’ Hot at Pony

Widely regarded as the pioneers of the wood fire grill in Sydney, Pony offers an honest flavour driven menu that showcases prime Australian produce, a carefully crafted boutique selection of wines with a cheeky cocktail list. At the heart of the kitchen is a signature Argentinean wood fire grill which is used to create sensational meat dishes, prepare fresh seafood and an array of shared and larger plates.

Pony Dining is located on the lively riverfront precinct of Eagle Street Pier and offers premier waterfront dining with unrivalled views across the Brisbane River. World class restaurant designers from Woods Bagot have transformed the restaurant into the stunning dining space featuring a large open kitchen, iconic outdoor dining, garden terrace, and leading event spaces.

Best dish: sliced wagyu with tamari marinade and pickled shimeji mushrooms, blanched asparagus with salted ricotta, pine nuts, salsa verde and lemon.
