On our visit to Brisbane's Sofitel we tried Prive 249 as it was a special occasion for us and we wanted a something special. The location of the restaurant is great, an intimate setting with a view. The food was good and typically French so don't expect big servings and the menu options are limited. The food itself was delicious... More

Third time here. First two times great, .... this time was a Saturday night for my 30th anniversary, we also brought along another couple who were celebrating their 40th anniversary. Well, wheels really came off. Poor service, waited for drinks, no discussion regrading wine selection. Waitress could not remember which meal was for which person - quite embarressing. Meals would...

We enjoyed our visit. We had been looking forward to trying this restaurant for quite some time and with 50% it was a great chance to go! Everything we had on the menu was absolutely divine, our personal favourites were both entrees (Pork belly and ocean trout). Having said this, the other meals were not below fine dining quality and... More

Atmosphere quiet and relaxed (as opposed to adjacent Thyme buffet restaurant that was very noisy) our part of 3 had the degustation menu with matching wines. Service was initially very slow with a long wait for food to arrive. Servings were small but the food excellent. The wine matchings were no more than a tasting - would have had no... More

Prive 249 has always been a favorite special occasion place of mine. But this time the sparkle wasn't quite there. The food was still amazing but we were really disappointed with the changes that have been made since visiting late last year. Gone were the complimentary amuse bouche and petit fours which came with the meals. For a two person... More

My husband and I have dined in this restaurant about three or four times over the years since it has been at the Sofitel. The last time we dined here, we were in house guests. I have to say that I find this restaurant a little confusing and have never really felt comfortable there. The food is nice enough and... More

We visited this restaurant as a couple and were seated at a table for 6. I noticed that a previous reviewer also had been seated at a table for 6 and was disappointed by this. we, on the other hand were really pleased to have such a large table and a booth and would hope that we would have this...

Wow. Can't describe the amazing flavours, and incredible presentation of the food on their menu. Never disappoints. Location is great as it is "cut off" from the main restaurant by glass walls. Amazing experience, each & every time. Accor club discounts (mostly) apply as well for the food portion. Amazing selection of wines, and the wait staff are VERY knowledgeable... More

What a disappointment! My husband made our booking the day before, and requested a nice window table. We arrived on the night and the waiter directed us to a massive round table, set for 6 or 8 people. My husband said "there are only two of us!" He replied "I know". So here we were, two of us, sitting side... More
