Positive review due to lovely setting and service and food.

Negative.
Order was wrong but didn't have to pay for this, which was a great consumer outcome.
Table was too near to bar, people where standing behind us whilst we were eating.
After our meal we wanted to sit outside but was told we'd have to pay for meal before moving.

We were a party of five, we all had entrees and mains. Everyone's meals were fantastic, the jus that accompanied the eye fillet was sensational. We shared two bottles of wine and all finished with a cocktail. Worked out at $85 a head which we all agreed was excellent value. We keep our yacht in the marina but had never visited before but we'll definitely be returning.

Lovely food cooked superbly and terrific service. Gorgeous spot looking over the marina at sunset. I did find the noise level difficult to deal with. Lots of echo with noise from other diners even though it was not full and everyone was socially distanced. Music and a ringing phone added to the cacophony. Hard to hear conversations at our own table and hear what the wait staff said.

Great spot to visit looking out over the water and the yachts - didn’t like the cauliflower small meal but everything else was most enjoyable - great vibes at Pier 33

The place is lovely and the food is of high standard. Our waitress was warm and welcoming. We just found overall the place extremely noisy and a little impersonal.
For the quality of food and cost, I would like to experience a quieter and more personal experience.

Starters were all excellent. Ordered the tuna tartare, scallops and prawn rolls and loved each dish.
Our waitress/server suggested the fettuccini as a main and it was delicious!
We were also given very lovely service by our waitress/server, something we find is often lacking in Sunshine Coast restaurants. Christiw

Amazing food and exceptional service as always. It is a well designed space, where children can happily run around outside without disrupting the ambience or dining experience of other guests.

Enjoyed New Year’s Eve, food outstanding, however, only one steak on the menu and couldn’t have it medium is just silly on chefs part.
Setting is beautiful and great value for money, but we left early as it was just too loud to talk over the band playing, will return though and hopefully give 5 stars next time.

We had a 7.30pm family dinner on NYE. Food was great, staff friendly, nice atmosphere. Only issue was the music was so loud we couldn’t hear the waiter, couldn’t hear each other and it actually ruined the ambience.
The band were actually good and we aren’t being whingers but Mgt should know we heard others saying the same in the bathrooms.

Beautiful food and view. Nice atmosphere as not too busy and noisy, however we could hear the party in the function room close by.
I would like to mention that there was a leak in the ceiling above my table that dripped on the table but it wasn’t constant. The building is looking a little tired but still a nice venue and lovely food.

I have dined 3 times at Pier 33 in the last 10days and I cannot fault it. The beautiful considerate Italian ?Hostess and all the excellent staff are amazing and made our visits memorable. Love the menu!
I do have one complaint. The telephone system is crazy and impossible to get thru. I did book online but really needed some questions answered as one of my friends is disabled so it was frustrating for her and myself . This system does not work and I was about to book elsewhere but my friend was happy to go without the required advice.

Wouldn’t recommend if your wanting a restaurant to talk to family & friends. The music was definitely aimed at the younger set wanting cocktails, more like night club music. I think the barmen must have been having a bad night also as at least 10 glasses were smashed over the time we were there. Food was good, perhaps the atmosphere may have been better if we were sitting outside.

Nice location and very accomodating waitress. Unfortunately the bara was slightly over cooked and skin was not crispy.

Suggestion: if someone on the table orders a small plate(a) for their main, can the plates arrive with everyone’s else’s main? It seems unnecessary to not be able to provide this.

The food was well presented & cooked to perfection and very tasty.
The entree’s were a little on the pricey side.

The cocktails were refreshing.

However although being situated near a doorway, I personally found it very warm inside.
