    Just fantastic: views, service, food and wine all brilliant. Relaxed but attentive. Staff were knowledgeable about food and wine, with a wonderful selection of premium wines and champagne using Coravin I can’t wait to go back!

    Food was fair/average quality made worse by a ludicrously small main course that would have left a 50kg woman hungry, much less a 90kg full grown man. Dinner reservation was for 8:30pm. In the middle of desert staff turned the lights up, down and back up again. All of the remaining dinners looked at each other and smiled/chuckled. I’m fine with spending $180 per person for a meal but if you’re going to charge like this, you need to be able to back it up. Expressed my displeasure when paying the bill and was met with a totally bland fob off. They’ve lost me and I won’t have a problem with telling others this first order restaurant was third rate.

    The most amazing service ever, all staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. We had the banquet menu and the food was disappointing, apart from the oysters there wasn’t anything that we would return to order again.

    Lovely venue and lovely staff. Food was the let down, menu looks interesting and portions were good, but the food lacked flare, and the flavours seemed mismatched. For example, we had the crepes and the sauce was essentially lemon curd…. Too sweet for what it was trying to achieve as an entree, similar with the duck beignets, they were served in a donut batter with a very sweet glaze… didn’t have any flavour of duck to compensate. I was really excited to order the Moreton bay bug dumpling bisque, the dumplings were very good but I very disappointed by the bisque. It was too salty and just again lacked the finesse that a dish like that should have . Unfortunately, the food doesn’t match the ambitions of the restaurant. It was also my partners birthday and they did not make any sort fuss or celebrations… as many other do…we were told , they treat every table the same, which made us feel why bother coming here to celebrate if they aren’t happy that you have chosen the restaurant especially for a celebration! I wouldn’t go back for this menu when there’s so many other fantastic restaurants to choose from in Brisbane.

    Service ( Don) was outstanding. Location perfect and ambience really really good. The only dish we did not necessarily like was the octopus - rest : goose, pompano, bugs and Dutch scallops were excellent. Definitely recommend

    Took my friend here for her birthday last night. Definitely won't be coming here again! Chicken under cooked. Server gave us attitude and took away her corn puree aswell which was delicious and didn't even ask us. Continued to say there was nothing wrong with the chicken. Very disappointed considering we loved Naga Thai and it's the same owners.

    The moment my Wife and I arrived at the restaurant we were made to feel totally welcome. Our table on the balcony was well located and we didn't feel in the lease crowded, the view off course spectacular. Our wait staff member (Hannah) was a delight, she was friendly, helpful and efficient. We are great lovers of seafood, and we weren't in the least disappointed, the food was well presented and absolutely delicious. The wine list extensive and, for a city restaurant reasonably priced. During our stay the Managers took the time to introduce themselves which we appreciated. As luck would have it, we only live a short distance away, so we certainly won't be strangers.

    Lunch at Tillerman for the first day of Spring… loved everything about it.. the food was excellent, a really different and interesting menu. Decore, ambience and service tips as well. A sophisticated restaurant with a very relaxed feel. They have a huge drinks menu, tried a couple of cocktails which were delicious… we will definitely go back and try more selections from the menu.

    It was opening night and we were greeted by happy and excited staff. The décor is amazing and a lot of thought and detail has gone into everything. We thought the food was fantastic and we enjoyed every dish. We indulged in the HIRAMASA KINGFISH with CRÊPES; ‘CÁ TRONG NGÀY’;, GLENCOE PORK SPARERIBS, and the DUTCH POTATO SCALLOPS. The views from the balcony over looking the river and Story bridge are fantastic and they have heaters to keep you warm and cozy. We look forward to returning and trying out many of the dishes on the menu. The owner, Andrew took the time to introduce himself and was happy to give us a tour of the new restaurant, and he should be proud of what he and his team have accomplished! A great addition to Brisbane dining that everyone should experience. Well done to Andrew, the chef and all the team.
