Nice physical atmosphere, in fact i think the decor is the stand out feature. The head waiter had the balance of arrogance and knowledge entirely wrong. His ambivelance about his role extended to slopping water and hurriedly dumping equipment on our table in a make believe aura of busyness...it actually wasn't that busy. A couple of the entrees are really... More

Brilliant food and wine. Great atmosphere. It was a fun alternative to the restaurants we usually visit along the river at Eagle street. We had a single serve of lamb rack and a duck with 4 sides which was plenty for 4 people, and beautifully cooked.

Had some high expectations for this hidden restaurant. The decor and service was good but the food was a let down. The menu didn't show what options were gluten free which is always frustrating. The menu also wasn't very exciting. My main was just average, flavours were ok but a little bland. I wouldn't order it again or go back... More

I had high expectations for this restaurant. Food was good and the open kitchen was a nice touch. The general ambiance was great, but our waitperson, I felt, let the team down. Interrupted us while we were talking, could not remember what wine my dining partner had previously ordered and made us feel like we were on a time limit.... More

Went here for a mid-week business lunch The experience overall was good, the service was excellent and the food arrived at the table in good time. I ordered the lamb rack which was tasty but not mind-blowing. The issue I had with the meal was the size. I am not a big eater by any stretch of the imagination but... More

I was not aware of The Survey Company which is not a surprise given its discreet position in Burnett Lane. After meeting for drinks we were escorted to a table in lovely surroundings with a very clever lighting set up. One can actually READ the menu with the down lights which light the table but still provide an appropriate ambience.... More

We also ordered the cheese plate with blue and brie and two glasses of pedro. The restaurant has wonderful mood lighting, perfect for a romantic evening or... More

If you are in Brisbane, this restaurant is a must!! Brilliant service, thankyou John, not to mention the nicest fish I have had at any restaurant in years. It also has the most lovely atmosphere and of course, wine to die for. Thankyou for the wonderful hospitality and beautiful food - well done!

The scallops were delightfully flavoursome with a satisfying pop between the teeth. Overall the food was delicious with a nice selection of wine and the staff were friendly and very helpful . A lovely distraction from day to day work.

We shared the risotto and lamb dishes. Both were delicious, but the risotto really stood out. One of the best I've tasted. Really cool atmosphere/vibe. Service was very good as well. See title of review. :)
