Description: Era has always had a reputation for fine dining, special occasions, corporate events and a very popular pre-show menu. With a new menu format, the Head Chef is aiming to build on that reputation, but move away from the singular fine-dining experience towards a more sociable format with the emphasis on a regularly changing menu of share plates. With the emphasis on the produce - fresh, local and seasonal, allowing the flavours to set the tone of each dish. Brisbane diners have shown that they want more diverse food experiences - with this new style of menu we will be aiming at both educating the public with new flavours and textures, whilst making the whole dining experience more inviting, social and accessible.

“No whining, just wining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

A quiet Era presented itself with the exit of the pre-show crowd that had wandered down to QPAC. Firstly the chosen wine form the "by the glass" list was unavailable, not a problem for the waiter who suggested some French bubbles at the same price. Menu was extensive and elegant, but could go past the scallops with fennel and blood orange, the crisp citric flavours complimenting the tender shellfish. A bottle of red was chosen but this time the sommelier/owner arrived and apologetically informed us the last bottle had recently been sold and the wine list not updated! However, he did bring another bottle as a replacement. We declined his suggestion and turned our attention to the wine list for a replacement. No sooner had we opened it, the sommelier had returned with three other suggestion, more inline with our tastes and one was chosen. It went brilliantly with the steak (perfectly cooked as requested), but the tenacity and enthusiasm of the wait staff will live in the memory; well done, guys.

“Normally a great place for service and tasting food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

I have previously eaten here at night twice and it awesome food and service over 12 months ago. I had lunch there today and it was a very different story and sure what has changed. The service was very tardy and there were not many people eating. I had the lunch special and it was below average to my previous experience.

“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Era Bistro always delivers! I eat here regularly (once a month), and attend various wine dinners held throughout the year. The wine list, food and service are excellent. I would highly recommend Era Bistro for travellers, couples and friends who want to enjoy a good night out with good food and wine.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had dinner there last night for Valentines Day and it was superb. The meals were divine and the portions were just right, not too small which was great. The only negative thing I would have to say is the mains did take a little too long to arrive, but other then that the ambience, food and service were great....
