    My husband and I were having a lovely evening at The Atlantic last night (Friday) until it was time to pay the bill. Having received a Good Food Restaurant Gift Card from friends for our wedding almost 3 years ago, we were there to utilise the voucher as we celebrated our anniversary. We chose this restaurant as it was one of those listed who accept Good Food Gift Cards. However, apparently because I had a paper version of the gift card rather than a swipe card, they were unable to accept the voucher as they have recently implemented a new computer system. I was left stunned, being told that I could not use the voucher and would have to pay the bill via an alternative means. How is this my fault that their new system at this stage cannot accept a paper voucher?? Thank god we had our credit card with us to pay the bill! What would have happened if we didn’t, knowing we would not need any other type of payment method. We left the restaurant feeling really deflated and disappointed, being told by the Manager that all we could do was maybe get in contact with Good Food and see if they can do anything. Great outcome for a customer NOT.

    Food on the plate was both appealing to the eye and tasty, menu however was very vague on description and even waiters were vague when asked. No rapor was made between the waiters and they rushed our table service.

    The red mullet had bones everywhere and when asked the waiter said of course it does, never expected it, don't think no one would. Very dry, be careful of the bones. Had the kingfish and snapper for mains, just have no words for the disappointment on a $46 dish, you just have to try it, don't. The pieces of fish were just dangling on the empty plate, not sure if it was on purpose but one was tipped on its side, the snapper was dry, stringy and chewy, not to mention the skin, inedible. The waiters are cold, saw a couple being directed to their table from a table away, couldn't be bothered to walk an extra meter to show them kindly to their seats? And the atmosphere, what atmosphere? there's zero interior decoration, zero mood, plain looking tables and chairs just arranged in lines like a school room. I don't think I have felt such sense of wasted money at a restaurant like this, not ever to this degree that I'm sitting here devoting my efforts so no one else falls for the crown brand, which we did and most others are quite good, bitter taste of betrayal on this one.

    Have been there at least 20 times over the years. Had a terrible table almost in the corridor where everyone walks past you. There should not be a table in that location! Portion sizes were so tiny, 1 cold Moreton Bug for $48, Barramundi main course was a small part of the fin maybe 100g thin and tiny. Wine list has gone up so much that most wines are now beyond $200 which used to be maybe $160 or less previously. It’s a shame that this place has gone down so much. Won’t be back.

    Covid has changed everything about this restaurant. Very few people eating in rooms makes you notice .Ladies birthday lunch so champagne always a good start. Small bites. Duck & smoked paprika croquette. Tasteless. Small dishes Cured Ora King Salmon. Delicious. Tempura Soft shell crab . Average Hervey scallops that had a cardboard feel. Chargrilled Freemantle Octopus .Delicious Chips with cajun salt. Good. We had four different staff that served us from experienced down to totally inexperience. Sorry not the Atlantic I knew and loved.

    I’ve been here many times and this time was very disappointing. The service was not good and the place was nearly empty on a Friday lunchtime. The food has always been very good here but unfortunately the food this time was below par. No outstanding dishes and every thing was either not good or just ok. Will give them another shot but very disappointed this time

We celebrated my wifes birthday recently and the staff went out of their way to make the evening special. Especially our waitress Elizabeth, she was a delight and made our dining experience even more enjoyable. The food was amazing, we will definitely be back.

    Had a 6pm dinner reservation for 2 and ordered within 10 minutes of arrival, was still waiting on our meals at 7:30pm, waiter said it should only be a few more minutes. We waited 10 more minutes and then decided to leave. I’ve never had to wait over an hour and a half for a meal.

    2 people spending over $250 for an average meal... meh. The wagyu croquettes were tasteless. Didn't love the octopus. The oysters were lovely. The $40 something dollar barra fish main was not value for money. The whiting didn't blow us away either. I wouldn't need to go here again for what used to be great food/value.... when it was The Waterfront.
