Stopped in with a group of family for pre-movies dinner. Got prompt friendly service from expert wait-staff, delicious sea-food cuisine and an extensive wine list. Staff ensured that we made the movie start. Definitely one to visit while in Brisbane.

I tend to dine at Harvey's whenever I am in Brisbane. I think it is more of a day time restaurant. The staff are always great, the atmosphere is great and the food is great, however I would like to see more healthier options on the menu.

We had the great pleasure of having lunch at Harveys on Saturday. The restaurant was fabulous in every way. Each of us chose a different meal and we all agreed that each one was just beautiful. The chocolate tart for dessert was to die for!! The staff helpful and pleasant and we will be sure to go there again.

I have been to Harveys several times and the service and food is consistently good. Like all inner city venues in Brisbane, it is expensive but there is a wide menus, friendly and knowledgable staff and a nice atmosphere. Good area for n evening stroll at all times of the year too.

Harvey's has been around for a long time but I had not been for breakfast before. It helped that it was a lovely sunny day and we had a table outside - but then that is one of the advantages of this restaurant - it has under cover outdoor seating that is off the road - so no car fumes... More

We came here for brunch on a Saturday for my mum's birthday. It was pretty crowded at 10am and there didn't seem to be many servers. We were waiting at our table for about 15 minutes before anyone even came to get our order. Once we had ordered, it took about 15 minutes just for our coffees to come, and... More
