We were completely ignored for a long period after our mains were finally cleared. The undercooked chips were still on the table when desserts were finally offered. Maybe they were confused why nobody ate them! It was a business group and our host was expected to tip - I hope he didn't. There are a lot of better places.

Very disappointing meal, poor service and a very cold dining room. Such high expectations made the event so much worse. The meals lacked seasoning, such a fundamental error. The condiments were mean and choice limited. Chips not cooked. We were forgotten after the main course with little choice other to sacrifice desert and coffee. We were even asked for a... More

I have eaten in many fine dining restaurants throughout Australia, Asian and Europe but i still haven't found a equal/better restaurant. Well worth a trip, try the pork belly its to die for, yeah its expensive but the nicer something is the more you will pay.

We had our company Christmas lunch here, which was around 20 people. The service was excellent and the food was amazing, which is only to be expected of a restaurant of this grade. Considering the choice available for the Lunch menu, the food was all prepared perfectly and arrived in such a fashion that everyone started eating at the same... More

For main I had the beef short rib and my partner had the steak. Again, wow! A beautiful meal, and as usual when we have been here, the service was impeccable. A great dining... More

The positives started with the phone call to book a lunch seating. A delightful person named Mandy was helpful and cheerful. She sounded like she really enjoyed greeting people on the phone. When she called back on the day of the booking she was just as bubbly and nice - she made me smile. At the restaurant the service was... More

I ordered a rare steak cut and the waitress correctly recommended that I change the cut of steak as the one I had chosen was too marbled for rare. I did as she recommended and I received the most perfectly cooked rare steak I have had in ages. The chef/s are at the top of their game here. Wine menu... More

Whilst we had a lovely night I was extremely dissapointed when a "Tip" of 15% was added, not on the bill, but when my credit card was presented at the EFTPOS machine. I quickly pulled my card out and asked the waiter to re-do the payment. I expressed my concern to the Manager and he tried to explain it that... More

A superb waterfront location in Brisbane with expansive floor to ceiling glass to maximize the views. We chose a set tasting menu of 5 courses which included a different wine to accompany each course. Each course was completely different to the previous and portion sizes were perfectly appropriate for a 5 course menu. Dinner times were fixed, we had a... More

ARIA Brisbane, located on the Eagle Street Pier, provides the quintessential Brisbane dining experience, with striking views from the restaurant of the Brisbane River. Owned by chef Matt Moran and restaurateur, Peter Sullivan, ARIA boasts a well-balanced seasonal menu, featuring local and Australian produce and an award winning wine list, served in an elegant dining room with stunning views. "If it's fine dining you seek, in a split-level expanse of understated elegance that affords sweeping city views, this sibling to Matt Moran's southern star ticks the boxes. Add a stellar cellar selection, with a thoughtful nod to Queensland wineries, plus accomplished service and you've hit the right notes, particularly for corporates and lovers of occasion. There's obvious skill, attention to detail and quality produce on show from opening chords to final flourish. Succulent pork belly has perfect golden crackling, while plump duck dumplings, abalone and mushrooms swim in a Peking duck consomme. Kingfish baked in cedar bark has its wrapping set alight en route to the table, adding a welcome smokiness. Creamy custard tart alongside figs, apple slices and candied walnuts has real retro charm. A sweet farewell gift box of miniature macarons rounds out a night to remember." Gourmet Traveller Australia
