Food was great as usual, but the service was really slack this time. We fall asleep 😴 waiting for our dessert 🍨 to come. Despite asking twice, we had to watch how people who got way after us in, served first. Really really bad!!!😤 And when we left all we got was a " sorry the desserts took so long"!?!?!... More

ARIA is an expensive restaurant. There I've said it so no complaints about being sent to an expensive restaurant. However once you get past the cost factor, there is no looking back. The service from when you walk in until you walk out is attentive and friendly. Being served inviting food at the same time (regardless of number of people... More

Some restaurants are over-rated and a let down. Aria is one of those rare restaurants where the reality is even better than reputation. Even after our 4th visit we still walk away with them having exceeded expectation. The staff are knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and absolutely spot-on with their service. The food is EXQUISITE, every mouthful is a delight. Sophisticated, but... More

Outstanding views, awesome service and beautiful food. This is a reasonably expensive restaurant, but I think the cost is justified, our meals were absolutely perfect. Many Thanks.

Did a surprise dinner for my husband's birthday and there was not a thing that could be faulted! We did degustation with matched wines and it was excellent! But the service far outweighed the food - which is saying something! Their attention to detail and to the customer - I would hazard a guess to say - far outweighed anywhere... More

My husband ordered a steak medium rare, it came out very well done. When he complained the waiter suggested 'if you cut into the middle it might be alright'. At that point we sent it back. The next steak looked a bit better but it was dry and no juice coming out of it. It would be impossible for us... More

Called to see if we would pass the dress code after a hot afternoon at the Botanic Gardens/ Planetarium (a must see if you're new to the Southern Cross). We were definitely on the casual end of "smart casual" but we were welcomed like The Emperor's New Clothes. I will have to write more some other time about the beautiful... More

We revisited Aria after having had a splendid lunch there a few years ago. This time we went for dinner - a more expensive but no less delightful experience. From the greeting when we arrived, to the meals, drinks and service, all was top quality. The staff should be commended on their friendly, yet professional, service. They made us feel... 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
