The meals were beautifully presented at Aria and everything tasted quite nice. The wine list was extensive which was nice, but also a hassle. The service was okay, but not outstanding. And we had to wait twice in the lobby for our table to be firstly rearranged and then moved, that was a little inconvenient. We all enjoyed the night,... More

celebrated a friends birthday, and wow I will be back when it is mine. Nothing was too much trouble. Yes it is expensive, but if you can appreciate the time and effort that goes into each dish then it is money well spent.

Attended a business lunch at this venue in the private dining room. The staff were fabulous and the food/wine on the set menu delicious...... Not sure on pricing or the balance of the menu but if what we were served is an indication it would be a venue worth trying

We've been to Aria several times now and haven't had a bad meal yet. Always delicious and the service is excellent. We were there last night for Riverfire and, even though it was a set menu and very busy, the flavours were varied and delicious and the service was extremely efficient.

I love Aira in Sydney so I was looking forward to going to the one in Brisbane, so I was a little disappointed that it didn't meet up to the same standards. Food was good but the service wasn't as polished and because we where not drinking they basically ignored us.

I took my partner here for his birthday whilst visiting his hometown of Brisbane. I'd booked a selection of restaurants to let him decide between and this was his pick - it did not disappoint. We had the degustation menu at lunchtime which despite being 7 courses was just the right amount of food - each (yummy) course didn't seem... More

Our dinner here was a wonderful experience. All the lovely little extras, staff brilliant and nothing too much trouble. Food was spectacular, best barramundi I have ever had. Million dollar view just added to the understated but elegant surrounds. Great to see our terrific Australian produce on display and cooked and handled beautifully. Yes it is on the dearer side...

We celebrated a significant wedding anniversary and chose Aria for a couple of reasons - reputation and location. It did not let us down. The food was super - the entree of oysters which we shared, was so good we asked for another dish! My duck was near perfect and my husband had the wagyu rump which he came with... More

Yep, it's expensive. But for a special occasion it's really worth the splurge, as Aria is in a class of its own. Go and enjoy the comfort, the view, the service and of course the food. The food is excellent. It's a great venue for a Brisbane RiverFire dinner. They used to run a lunch time special which was excellent... More

Description
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
