food, service, atmosphere very good but paying $50 for a bottle of wine that retails for $5.95 I thought was a rip off. I expect a mark up but that was extreme.

We didn't have any food just the $10 cocktails which were awesome! Really reasonably priced and delicious. The ambience was lovely and the service was great!

Groovy place. Chef with good sense of humor. Food was delicious. Ambiance great. Only drawback: it seems like the owners or chef's family were there on the night, so naturally they received their meals before we did. Wait staff hovered around them instead of us...resulting in the business missing out on a few additional meal and drink orders we might have made. BUT, when the staff DID attend to us, they were BRILLIANT. Just watch that, guys.

Cocktails let my review down. The $10 cocktails are from those pre-mixed bottles you get from the bottle shop. If you love cocktails don't bother with them. The food was really good. Service brilliant. Missed the Semi Fredo, hope this comes back on the dessert menu.

Rag Doll was a nice little bar on a busy street, really good atmosphere but it was extremely hot, there was no fans or AC. We had the cheese board, it was huge, we could not finish it. It had some really nice cheese selections and wines to match, it was nice to pay $10 for a glass of really nice wine and not $19 like all the other restaurants in the area. The service was incredible although understaffed, our waiter was looking after 30 people, pore guy but he managed really well.

The service was beyond poor, we had to ask for the menus, ask for them to take the drink order, twice! And ask them to take our food order.
The food was very good, the service & waitress we had on saturday night was miserable, as was the music. Nowhere this millennium have I heard unchained melody at 930pm on a saturday night

I had booked for a group of 10 people for dinner and arrived early for cocktails. We arrived approx 4.40pm and sat on the couches and we ordered 2 cocktails each which seemed to be a hassle for the waitress. She seemed very unimpressed. There was only 4 other people in the restaurant and it was very quiet and I dont think this should've been much of an issue. The waitress asked us if we would like to stay at the couches to eat which we agreed to. Once our drinks were finished we were not offered a top up and we requested the menu 3 times so we could order food. This request was ignored 3 times so we eventually asked for the bill, paid for the cocktails and went down the road to Justin Lane where we experienced great service.
Very disappointing. This was a work christmas event and we were all very disappointed with the service.

I feel Ragdoll had a lot of potential - but unfortunately it did not live up to it.
The quality of the food did not match the prices.
The 'ambience' was ruined by it being too noisy. There is a difference between being 'energetic' (as per the option presented above) and being 'noisy'.

Good food, small portions and decent value. The waiter was a little flustered and busy during our dining experience. Seemed like a busy night and we were left waiting for some time (struggled to get attention). As a group, the table could barely fit our shared plates - we felt quite squished in. Fitting our wine glasses, plates and food on the table felt like Tetris. Good ambience though!

Online menu and table menu were both different. Only a hand full things from the online menu were available. Also no muscles available on the night so a little disappointing.

Had a business meeting at Ragdoll yesterday. Venue was perfect. Was able to hold our business conversation comfortably. Food was delicious!! Started with the charcuterie board, always my favourite and the standard was much higher than other venues I've visited. They do shared plates so we were able to sample different dishes which was great. Service was to a high standard and we dined on the duck (which just fell off the bone) along with seasonal vegetables and wagyu, followed by a dessert which was the chef's special for that day … Loved it and its a perfect venue for so many occasions, especially our business meeting lunch. I highly recommend it. I did also hear that live music was commencing in the evening. Fabulous!

Very disappointing. Salt & pepper calamari was so peppery you couldn’t taste anything else, sliders were terrible as the buns were rock hard, meat patty over cooked and the slice of tomato was almost twice the size/thickness of the meat patty (they didn’t charge us for the sliders because they were so bad). Only one dessert ordered sticky date pudd and that was more like a cake with a few dates, not a rich pudding. Even the glass of Rose was poor. Won’t be going back

The team at Ragdoll looked after us brilliantly. The food was amazing... I loved the roo and my partner loved the lamb.

Had a couple of cocktails. Try the passionfruit caprioska and the Expresso Martini's

We will definitely be going back.

An experience well worth savouring.

We had dinner and selected several options to share. All were well presented and tasty. The restaurant is nicely decorated in black, white, red and grey. It was a Saturday night and the background music provided by the female singer (with guitar) was just right - good choice of songs and not loud.

Food was delicious but portions were quite small and expensive given the size. It took a very long time for meals to be served and the restaurant was not busy at all, which detracted from the otherwise delicious menu. Wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Cocktail presentation was poor but tasted good. Overall a good restaurant but could be great with a few adjustments in service time, cocktail presentation and serving size.

Food stunning , solo acoustic singer was great to have service /attentiveness a bit on and off, decor beautiful
Improvements- food came out a bit too quickly.
I hope it stays and people visit , a great addition to Burleigh scene. Nice and quiet in James street compared to other side where more restaurants and noisy. Well done Ragdoll- yum!
