I had been to this Motion Bar & Grill at Brisbane Marriott and everything I ordered the Steak for main meal. Can't go wrong with this choice. Overall it's good atmosphere and lone business traveler.

We dined here tonight on a set menu as part of a package. Service started slow with the man who took us to out table that was possibly the manager forgetting to advise staff of our arrival.
