“Nice setting, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Stopped in here for lunch after Whale watching from the nearby marina. Got there soon after midday and left well over three hours later, far too slow for a simple lunch.
Wouldn't go back, would go to Glass which has better food and better service.

“Awesome day at Saks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We had a birthday lunch for a friend on Friday 3rd Aug and chose this restaurant because of the locaation and food, which were excellent as alway. What really shone this time was our waiter, his name escapes me but 10/10 for service. Well done Saks on providing the whole dining experience, so impressed.

“Good food and great for a drink afterwards...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Had a great night of food and drinks at Saks...the food is of a good quality for the price point and the atmosphere is fantastic. Right on the water at Marina Mirage on the Gold Coast you cannot ask for a better venue. The decor is good, and bar is fantastic (and if you party after dinner that is important) and we had a great time. If you want to start the night with a good meal and a few drinks you will not go wrong at Saks.

“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Service was excellent. The whole sole was fabulous and very generous servings so don't anything before you go. We sat outside and found a nice sunny spot in the cool July weather. I have been many times to Saks and will be back again soon!

“Do not go here except maybe for a drink in a nightclub”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Unless you like eating dinner in a nightclub I would avoid this place, the calamari I had for entree wasn't cooked, the pasta carbonara i had for main was something a student would make at home, all this for $145. It's a shame as it is a great waterfront location however the nightclub ambience wasn't for us and it wasn't helped by hens party table behind us screaming at the top of their voices which the staff did nothing to stop. Do not go here except maybe for a drink in a nightclub. They need to change their website as one would assume by looking at it on the web it is a high class restaurant, not the nightclub trash you encounter when you arrive.
