I only ate breakfast here, which was fantastic. It seemed this restaurant was well attended through out the day. Right by the river.

We attended this restaurant on the 1st Jan 2013 - I believe that it may have been a revised menu for the public holiday as the variety of food was disappointing.
After ordering our wine on our arrival we ended up waiting and having to ask two times where our drinks were....including some water, until well after our Entree had arrived!
Food was beautiful - Crispy skinned barramundi was perfect and lamb was beautifully presented.
Dining was cramped! We sat in between honeymooners who were very amorous (made us feel very uncomfortable) and a German woman (travelling alone) who was wanting to make small talk constantly! We were all seated side by side and was not pleasant.
I would also like to point out that when dining at a "fine establishment" I do not wish to see high piles of serviettes ready to be folded on the bar table! Not very professional at all.
Training to the staff needs to be done - for example - Collection of my husbands plate when I'm still eating is not appropriate.
If it wasn't for the high standard of food this review would of been a 1 star - Management needs to be more vigilant with training etc.

On Christmas day after being earlier let down by another restaurant in Brisbane we decided to try the Motion Bar and Grill just to get some dessert. Welcomed by a nice member of the waiting staff he showed us a table on the outside terrace and when we said we only wanted dessert and coffees he showed us the part of the menu we needed.
Quick and friendly service, nice outside seating area and tasty desserts the restaurant managed to put a smile back on our face. Even though snowed under by pre booked Christmas Dinners the staff were very happy to accommodate us and provide us with what we wanted. Happy to have dropped in.

Having considered and rejected the idea of eating our Christmas lunch at a restaurant, on the basis that there would be far more food than we wanted to eat, we decided to go out for Christmas breakfast instead. Motion Bar and Grill proved a great choice of venue - food was delicious and plentiful, and just about every imaginable breakfast option was on offer, ranging from cooked food and pastries to waffles and cereals, and many other things besides. Service was attentive and discreet, and we were delighted that the tables weren't packed too closely together. The meal was rounded off by a festive glass of bubbles. All in all, a special and memorable to start Christmas Day.

I had bought a Livingsocial voucher for a 3course meal for two inclusive with a glass of wine each and I have to say I was extemely impressed with quality of food and high service that we recieved.
The options for all courses were very tasty. The mains sides were abit small but for what we paid I couldnt nor wouldn't expect a plate stacked with food.
Our server Caroline was very friendly and professional and the overall restaurant team looked after everyone very efficiently.
It would be a place that I would happily visit again.
