I would like to see some vegetarian options on the menu. The two times I’ve visited, I was offered the same dish. It was most enjoyable but I would like to try something else. My husband enjoyed his steak very much.
Always a great experience at Harvey's - combines a lovely setting, fantastic food and service and great ambience.
Chicken salad is a must! Great food, ambience and location.
We have been regular (fussy!) diners for years. Consistently excellent food!
Congratulations PJ for maintaining the standard despite covid! Long may you survive!
As always a really good breakfast experience. Food was delicious.
Very poor service. We were served our meals and coffee very quickly, but then only after 34mins of our booking, the bill was delivered and we were told the table was needed for another booking. There were plenty of tables available. I told the waiter that it was ridiculous to expect Sunday morning breakfast to be done and dusted within an hour. Very poor form for such a busy and iconic place in one of Brisbane’s prime hotspots on a Sunday morning.
The greeting was warm, the service was welcoming, efficient and friendly and the food was outstanding.
Small breakfast menu but delicious and can always add sides.
Cold food. Poor service.
3rd time I have been and had this experience. Crossed off the list for good!
in a word: "excellent"...in more words: the atmosphere is fab outside and service is very professional yet friendly. How it should be done!
Great Service and food.
The Harvey's Thai chicken salad washed down with a glass of Craggy Range Sav Blanc was a great way to spend a wet Sunday arvo. Highly recommended.
Loved it, it was a perfect place to celebrate my birthday with my beautiful family. 100% recommend, the service was incredible they went above and beyond for us. thankyou !
Always good food at a reasonable price. Halumi schnitzel always a favourite
Excellent and knowledgeable service and the food is always amazing. The waitress we had was so lovely and always suggests the best wines.
Sunday lunch, sorted. The service was, as always, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. And you never go wrong with the food.
Always reliable, great food and friendly service.
Most enjoyable experience
Food and service very average. Lots of other cafes offering better food and service.
I’m a creature of habit but I know I’m never disappointed. The only thing I have ever eaten at Harvey’s, is the buttermilk pancakes, fully optioned with bacon and if you haven’t had them yet, why the hell not!!?? Thanks again Harvey’s and see you again soon
We had a wonderful meal surrounded by tables of happy people enjoying the different inside and outside dining areas Harvey’s offers. The personable wait staff added to our enjoyment.
Excellent and friendly service. The food and wine is always very good. Atmosphere is very relaxing for lunch.
Consistently brilliant - we love Harvey’s! If you are looking for quality produce, perfectly cooked and presented and top service, you can do no better than Harvey’s Bar and Bistro.
Consistently good food - service is ‘hit and miss’ - always a busy place so best to book ahead - great new indoor enclosed section and outside is lovely depending on weather - one of our ‘go to’ places for a good meal.
Had a lovely lunch with 2 almost adult daughters - something for everyone. Food delicious! Not pressured into extras/dessert etc but made feel very welcome and looked after. Chatty but not intrusive staff.
Try the Pate. The Steak. The Cheese x 2. Fabulous Champers to start then a Tassie Pinot. Combined with great service. Par Excellence!

My main meal wasn't as described in the menu. There was no taste of fennel in the risotto it tasted of lots of pepper.
Impeccable service and perfect food. The resturant area was cool and relaxed on a very humid day. We were looked after very well by attentive and happy staff who seemed to enjoy their job! One of our favourite dining experiences of our weekend in the James Stree precinct.
We will definitely recommend.
We celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary there on Sunday, fabulous as always.
Why go anywhere else.
Never disappoints. Never disappoints. Never disappoints.
As a vegetarian and lactose intolerant - there wasn't actually anything on the menu I could safely eat. However, the lunch meeting was such - I felt I had to eat.
I LOVE gnocchi - so I had that dish - which had a herb ricotta through it. The gnocchi was perfect - and really was lovely. It just wasn't good for me!!
Please consider adding another dish to the range?
It doesn’t matter where else I eat I always return to Harvey’s. It is totally reliable in every way and the staff makes you feel so welcome.Don’t miss it in James Street.
Consistently very good. Quality food and service, perfect anytime for any occasion! Never disappoints
When we booked there was only the choice of 11am or after 12, we had a movie at 12.40 so needed the 11am. Were not allowed to order anything off the lunch menu which seemed slightly ridiculous, but probably understandable. The waitress was quite rude about it though. Had a very ordinary mushroom, lentil breakfast. Menu is overly focused on carbohydrates. Lovely setting, just ho hum food. Disappointing and not sure we would bother again.
Normally I have a great experience but the blonde with the curly hair and accent seemed to be in a mood - I had a booking and was seated then when my guest arrived was seated on a completely different table even though she said she was on table for Simone. - then when we were leaving and waiting to pay she pushed past us twice almost yelling ‘excuse me’ - not a good experience.
We have enjoyed lunch many times at Harvey’s and continue to be delighted by the consistent excellent standard of food and service each time we visit. I have an allergy to some wines so am delighted that they have restocked with Shaw and Smith M3 Chardonnay 😀 and can enjoy a glass or two with my meal again.
The quality of the produce is next to none and the service friendly and professional. We will continue to enjoy Harvey’s as we have no doubt this standard will prevail.
The food was really high quality, and the service was great.
Consistently good. Service always helpful & attentive.
Lunch was excellent. Chicken salad and prawn rissoto amazing. Wines a bit expensive.
Service was also excellent. Attentive without being overbearing.
Despite it being an extremely hot day, we had a pleasant lunch in the outside area. Great service and consistently good food as always.
My wife and I continue to have high praise for Harvey's. Excellent food but as pensioners, we are unable to indulge ourselves more than once a year.
