“Amazing Dining Experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

We went here with friends and started with a drink at the bar which is very cosy and the staff are very friendly, I'm pregnant so asked them to make me a mocktail which was fantastic!!! We then made our way upstairs for dinner, again very friendly staff and a nice view of the inner city lights. Right from the side of bread to dessert Malt did not disappoint, my husband had the wagyu and beef cheek dish and is still talking about it this morning he has been lucky enough to dine at all the major fine dining resturants in Brisabne and said this is up there with one of the best meals he has had, great portion size perfectly cooked, beautiful flavours and the price is right. I had the duck dish which was sensational but the Malt brownie dessert topped off the night for me. We will definatly be back and do yourself a favour book in for the Malt experience ASAP!!!

“Family dinner at Malt”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We had a table for 6 booked for a family birthday. Arrived a little early and had drinks in the street level bar. Very nice space and good cocktail and beer list.
Took our drinks upstair the very handsome staircase when table was available.
Lovely dining room. Greeted enthusiastically by wait staff. Staff appeared to vary in experience but this didnt detract from our night. Interesting menu and a very good wine list.
All entrees were great although the Scallop dish and the Rabbit dish probably were the picks on the night. Mains were equally as good. Really nice slow cooked beef cheek, although all selections were very nice and no one at our table was dissapointed with their selection.
Good variety of sides. Being a special occassion, we also enjoyed a dessert - again, excellent quality, a bit different and very very tasty. All dishes were carefully explained by wait staff on arrival. Piano player a nice touch.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Malt.
The restaurant has a great atmosphere and delivers a fine dining experience without the stuffiness.
We would definitely recommend it and cant wait to go back!

“3 Desserts!!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I had been wanting to dine here for months - ever since it opened actually but I never had the right company to experience it with until now.....and it was worth the wait!!
We did things slightly different in terms of ordering food - 2 Entrees, followed by another Entree, a Main and 2 Sides and concluded with 3 Desserts because we simply could not amicably decide on our choices. This way of ordering and sharing the food showcases just how talented all the crew at Malt Dinning truly are! You will be begging the Chef for the recipe of the Maple Roasted Carrots the moment you try them! Great atmosphere, Great Service and truly Great Food. Thank you.

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very nice experience...great food, staff were very happy to answer any questions about the menu which was varied & interesting (not huge in choice though). Staff explained all elements of the dishes as they bought them to you which was fantastic as mostly your meal is plopped in front of you & that is that.
Piano player was very good & made for a nice atmosphere.

“Brilliant on all fronts”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

A word of mouth recommendation for a private room to host an important mid-week business dinner brought us to the Malt's beautiful cellar room. Surrounded by the restaurant's outstanding wine list (the 2005 Hensche Keyneton Estate was sublime), my mostly international guests relished and acknowledged the highest quality food (scallops and lamb were just delicious). Service was timely and carefully unpretentious but provided within a reserved atmosphere of modest elegance, as Brisbane should proudly continue to offer. So when blended, this single Malt experience may well in fact best represent what the city can offer as its own refined dining experience.
