After hearing the repeat radio/newspaper advertisements about how romantic Burleigh Island Lodge was going to be for Valentines, my spouse and I made reservations. This was our first time visiting the establishment, and we were excited to finally get a romantic night out. When we arrived no one met us at the door. When someone finally noticed us standing around they asked if we had reservations. As we did, we gave our name and they spent quite a long time circling us around trying to find our table - which was never found. I guess they forgot to book us. After seating us we waited 15 minutes for our server to take our drink order. There was no sign (decorations of any sort) that it was Valentines. The promised 'candlelight' dinner and romantic music was non-existent. After asking the waiter about the music he explained it didn't start until after 9pm - which wasn't what was advertised. During our dinner we noticed the same things happening to other guests (it actually became a joke with another table that they were never going to get their drinks). The food was cheap-tasting. Sadly our romantic night was a complete write-off. I'm glad I tried having dinner here before I thought about booking my wedding at this establishment.
