    We have been eating here for more than 2 decades and have no qualm about recommending this restaurant. Everything went well during the dinner and we cannot hope for better service from the staff. They're certainly wel trained. So, kudos to the managers in charge. The food was as usual superb except for a slight overindulgence in 'The Royal crab spaghettini'. The chorizo chosen was used to enhance the taste of the dish but it's too salty when chomped on. Maybe a less salty version can be substituted. That said, everything went well even for my very finicky sisters who came along! It's great to note that PORK is now back on the menu instead of the really insulting period when it was omitted for religious reasons. There's just no logical reason to do so when Queensland has some of the finest pork produced in the southern Pacific region!

    The food is really good. We had seafood which was nice and fresh and a pork belly cooked to perfection. The desert was fantastic. The atmosphere is quiet and relax.

    We enjoyed three courses from the menu and were not disappointed by any of the items. We asked the waiter for his personal recommendations and everything that he recommended absolutely hit the mark. The char-grilled baby octopus for entree was a real winner. The crab spaghetti and the Porterhouse for mains were perfectly presented and the Lindt chocolate for dessert was something that we were pretty well awed by. We would definitely be back for all of the same dishes, and to try others too. Service was very personalised and we also enjoyed the classic restaurant setting. Highly recommended overall.

    My Mother and daughter recently had lunch at the Walnut Room. The food mains were delicious and the service attentive from the moment we arrived to when we left. We very much enjoyed our lunch and will be returning.

    The restaurant is near the Brisbane Botanical gardens. Street parking after 7.00pm was metered but cheap and easy to obtain. We were welcomed by the front of house The menu was very good. The meals great sizes and quality. The bar service was wonderful and the cocktails awesome. This was a lovely experience - we had a wonderful night

    Really enjoyed the experience, food was great and wine not too pricey. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. My only concern was how close the tables were as it was noisy. Overall great, especially to share with my wonderful partner.

    Great food. Very friendly staff. The meals come out in a timely manner. We generally get a car park on the street. Cocktails seem to take a while to make though but only a minor issue compared to how good everything else is. I gave 4 stars for atmosphere only because we weren't seated closer to the glass window. Overall, we love coming here hence why we keep coming back :)

    Staff were very attentive and lovely! Loved the interior and atmosphere. We had a table of 6 and ordered the antipasto and seafood shared plates. They were good but we didn’t think they were value for money. My partner ordered the double ribs which came out a bit dry, but tasted good. The market fish and salmon mains were delicious. Highly recommend the cremeux for dessert! It’s really rich though.

    The staff were excellent and the setting was lovely. The food was okay with small servings. The fish was rather dry. The beef ribs were good. The scallops weren’t juicy and tender.

    This is most definitely, one of the best restaurants, that I’ve had the pleasure to experience in a longtime ! The ambiance, decor and food, literally were all on point and the staff were absolutely outstanding in their manners and service. My beloved and good friend? had such a wonderful experience, that we will all be returning again and telling our friends about how amazing The Walnut truly is. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I can’t wait to be back and try other things on the menu.
