We had a wonderful lunch with family.
The food was varied and divine.
There was something for everyone.
The service was great. They printed fresh lunch menus for everyone
Beautiful food&Excellent service in a nice location 😊
My friends and I continue to talk of how we soooo much enjoyed our luncheon at Emeraude last Friday 15th March. Our senses were fullfilled to capacity, delightful meal & service. Inside was a little too loud with space a premium, outside will be for next time. Thank you folk at Emeraude.👍🍸
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch out at your lovely restaurant.
It was just a shame long wait for drinks and meals.
Short staffed !!!
Look forward to seeing you next time.
Thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience. Place was very busy, and meals took awhile, but waiters were attentive, and apologised, which was notnecessary.
Excellent service and amazing food. We will be back again for sure.
Went for lunch to celebrate our daughters birthday. Thank you for a lovely lunch
If you choose to dine anywhere in the Toowoomba region, choose Emeraude. As the name suggests a pure gem is on offer for those who appreciate the culinary delights of people who love food. No other establishment exists within our region that delivers such food quality and importantly, menu difference, a must try, and a must return.
The staff could simply not do enough for us. A very pleasant experience. Food was lovely. But service was outstanding.
Delicious food, beautiful decor & great service! Thank you Emeraude for a lovely Anniversary dinner.
Wonderful cafe, with such a wonderful menu. Fantastic use of local produce. Fast service, the most friendly and helpful of staff.
Friendly and professional service and food that is absolutely worth a round trip from Brisbane. Make sure you try the bruchetta.
first time we have eaten at Emeraude meals were delicious. We were traveling through from brisbane on our way to the bunya mountains. food and service were great the mains a very generous in size we will definitely be going back.
The most amazing food, great service and lovely atmosphere. Can’t wait to dine again
Food fabulous, good coffee... The menu is incredible!
We had a lovely time. It was a special (romantic) occasion, and when booking, I asked for a quiet table. The restaurant actually put us in a very quiet corner, behind a hedge, and we had the whole little corner to ourselves. Just us and candlelight :) Thank you so much for doing this for us, it was a very special evening. Outstanding food and wine, attentive perfect service, really enjoyed everything.
Loved it! Food was amazing, loved every mouthful. Our waiter was lovely we felt well attended to. It was rather noisy inside with everyone talking but overall we were very happy & will return.
Beautiful food and a different and diverse menu backed up by great service and very reasonable prices.
Great service, followed by great food
This was our 1st time visit to Emeraude for my Valentines Birthday dinner. Waitstaff were friendly, very well trained and made our night very special with my rosella spritzer. This restaurant serves the best food in Toowoomba exceptional flavour, plating was spot on and something a little different. The sea scallops were outstanding as was the slow cooked beef cheeks and pork belly. Loved the dessert. We are very fussy patrons and we were so impressed. A restaurant that has got it right and we will be back. Now our favourite dining experience. Worth the drive! Thankyou.
I love this place, always great service and amazing food.
Have been a few times now and the service and food is always exceptional!
Service and quality of food is top notch and definitely will visit again.
The food was excellent. The wait staff were generally very good. The time to get a breakfast order in and the time for the food to come out was quite long. We would still come back due to the quality of the food but the time to turn-around the order can be greatly improved. This was the only thing which detracted from the experience.
Beautiful place and beautiful space, delicious food. Worth the drive and worth a date with that special someone, friend, mum or kids! Great vibes!
Wonderful restaurant, food absolutely fabulous. Wait staff were very attentive. Highly recommended!
We recently enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at Emeraude. Though situated close to the New England Highway at Hampton, traffic noise was not a problem as Emeraude is buffered by very attractive gardens which act as a visual and sound barrier. The peaceful northern Downs rural surroundings were matched by the attractive and relaxed furnishings and colour palette of Emeraude. The service was excellent with a cheerful and knowledgeable staff who could not be faulted. The pizza and burger offerings received a very enthusiastic thumbs up but we found the filling in the French style Chicken Pie, though tasty, to be rather dry. However, the pie crust was 'just right'. The dessert offerings in the standard cake box display were of good quality but were not what I would describe as memorable.
One request to management - could you please prepare a better organised menu for your customers to peruse? Part of the charm of Emeraude is the fact that it uses local produce almost exclusively, and thus the menu must be a 'movable feast' as it responds to the local weather gods and their unavoidable impact on the local small producers. However, with a standard computer template with suitable headings, a more organised daily menu could be produced daily and would add to your customers' comfort significantly.
Lunch at Emeraudes was an excellent local dining experience for us and I would encourage all to try it.
Great service, beautiful setting, INCREDIBLE food!
Loved the flavour and presentation of the meals. Entree portion sizes were very large! Good service and setting.
Have been to Emeraude twice and have thoroughly enjoyed both times. The waiter that served our table was knowledgeable and very pleasant. Our meal was delicious and the menu has a good range of dishes to choose from
This was our second dining experience at Emeraude which is about 1.5 hrs drive from home for us. We feel it’s worth the country drive though, for the excellent food with a very interesting menu to choose from. The service was only average as they appeared understaffed on what was apparently a busier than usual Thursday, but our meal was worth the wait. We’ll be back!!
Lovely meal - seemed to be limited options for vegetarians (but the pizza was really tasty.) Very loud inside...next time I will request a table on the verandah if possible as it was difficult to have a conversation.
Great location and ambience. Creative and original menu, good food and service.
Once again fantastic food and service. Just a couple of very minor negatives. The entrees could have been a little hotter and there was a large group inside that was VERY noisy.
I'm a regular and highly recommend breakfast/brunch whether you like a cooked, fruit or sweet start to the day. Danishes are incredible. Best mushrooms I have ever eaten.
This review is of last dinner I ate at Emeruade. Magical, leafy courtyard for outdoor dining with generous space between tables to enjoy ambiance and private conversation. It was surprisingly cool for January, and a blanket was supplied to the one of us that needed it.
We selected a shared tasting plate and main each from the latest seasonal produce menu. Tasting plate was almost enough for a meal for three ladies. Local sourdough bread, olives, chutney, pickles, and baked soft cheese with honey. Restaurant made crumbed cauliflower and beetroot dip. Plus more. Super yum.
I had a cheese souffle for a main - they created a vegetarian version especially. Excellent, rich, creamy. Again, could easily be shared.
I'm no connoisseur of drinks, but tried an experimental elder flower and gin cocktail. It was very good (but not as amazing as the rosella flower and gin cocktail sometimes on the menu). Wine was very god too.
I have been twice just recently and thoroughly enjoyed my meal and time there.
Will be back again soon.
Had a nice table in the courtyard, however it did get a bit hot. We should have taken a table inside. Great food and very generous servings. Ha French Chicken Pie and the Cauliflower. Both were delicious. Drove up from Brisbane for my friend's birthday and it was worth the drive. Will be back.
Outstanding service and food. Very creative and eclectic menu. Had to take our dessert home as we were too full. Will be back.
The meals are very large portions so we shared a tasting plate to leave room for the delicious dessert. We had 4 kids and 2 adults with us and they looked after us really well, bringing extra plates to share meals with the kids. A great sitting so nice to just sit, relax and enjoy a delicious lunch and a glass of bubbly.
This was a very tasty lunch and the service was very efficient and friendly.
