I try and get back to the Lab on each visit to Brisbane and as yet it has never let me down. From the ambiance, service and of course the food it is great. The small touches of making a guest feel special on their birthday etc enhances the experience. Whether I have been solo for dinner, intimate 'couples' night... More

We decided to choose The Lab Bar this year as it was not a buffet lunch and offered tables for two, unlike some other places we enquired about. The menu looked really nice and appetising so we were quite looking forward to going. On arrival there seemed to be a mix up with some ones table which had nothing to... More

Visited last Friday evening for a dinner for two and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Service was first class as was the quality of the food. Recommended for any occasion.

For my birthday, I organised a celebratory High Tea with 10 friends. We all had a wonderful time - the food was fabulous and the quantities very generous, the setting very refined, and the service excellent. At $45, it is very reasonably priced. I've tried high tea at quite a few places, and this one is my favourite. There are... More

Having dined here numerous times over the years, I was very disappointed with the food and service at most recent trip. Food still of good standard but not great and very overpriced. Waiter was average. Did not explain things properly and we ended up having to top up our own wine glasses. Main manager or head waiter (not sure) was... More

I was sad the Marco Polo restaurant had closed,however I recently went to the Lab restaurant and was surprised to see some of my favourite dishes were now available there! I had the XO scallops and side of fried rice was so yummy! Lovely place fantastic service but the food was especially delicious!

As soon as we walked in we knew this place was special. The staff were very attentive and made us feel welcome. The whole menu looks amazing, and our order was some of the most delicious food we have eaten! We were treated with a chocolate plate as a congratulations from the staff....we will definitely be back!

We visited The Lab on a Monday night and right from the moment we arrived it was everything we hoped for. Quiet piano music in the background, helpful staff, excellent wine selection and delisious food. We enjoyed fish mains and they were cooked perfectly with a side salad, it was all too good. I can't wait to come back and... More

My husband and I dined here whilst staying at the Hotel and I have to say it was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had. We ordered the Chateau Briand and a bottle of Sam Neil's Two Paddock Pinot. Exceptional service, food and atmosphere. I could not fault it and I will certainly be back Thank... More
