The food and service are always great here. My only disappointment, minor as it is, is the menu is small and you may not find enough choice. However I would still go back

An average experience for a region that has many great choices. Overlooks a car park and busy road and unfortunately the food does not make up for the poor location. However to round off a disappointing experience you are then charged 1.5% to use a Visa credit card. That is a cost of doing business and if that can not... More

So after reading reviews we thought we would give it the benefit of the doubt and give this place a go with our friends today for lunch. Service was nice, ladies there were lovely however took over an hour for our lunch to be served. I shared a roasted chicken and it was SOO dry. I'll be honest, a $8... More

Unfortunately we had high expectations for the long table. We went for a special occasion and we are foodies and it was a let down. The oysters tasted washed and frozen, with an odd bitter taste. The wagyu was so sweet it tasted like dessert. All the other meals we had were underwhelming, even the chips weren't seasoned as described... More

Samantha F, Owner at The Long Table, responded to this review

Hi Darcy, Disappointing news for us as we have been receiving many warm comments regarding the food. I can assure you the oysters are freshly shucked, never frozen and are served in their own juices as we don't wash them after opening them thus conserving their natural flavour. The Wagyu is served with onions and a black vinegar on the... More

Very friendly people, very accommodating of two couples with 7 kids between them. The food was excellent. Service a little slow perhaps when we ordered a second round of (excellent) bolognese for the kids, but overall would love to come back.

This restaurant just keeps getting better, the drinks and food here are better than anywhere else and without any winery tax! We drank great cocktails, wines and shared about six dishes. The restaurant was really busy and a bit noisy but can't wait to go back.

We had a great experience at the Long Table on Friday night. The staff were welcoming and attentive and our waitress had very good knowledge of both the menu and the winelist. We tried some dishes to share which were tasty and innovative. It is very obvious that everything is fresh and made to order as the quality really shines... More

A small family celebration a long time coming was made less special by some pretty ordinary dishes and disinterested service. I had three dishes last night all of which were very uninspiring. Surf clams for entree tasted nice but very chewy, wagyu(?) beef also very chewy and served with some inedible vegetable and black garlic puree. After those disappointments was... More

Dear Peter, We are sorry to hear of your 'less special' visit with us last Friday. Regarding your comments on the food...clams by nature do have a slighlty chewy texture and your Wagyu was indeed Darling Downs Wagyu, Grade 4. Jane informed us that she enquired as to how you enjoyed your entrees and mains and no adverse comments were... More
