For ambience and group dining this is a fine venue. However my partner and I are vegetarian and found the food to be lacking finesse and balance.

I loved the table we had with fantastic Brisbane city views. The lamb meal we shared was delicious. The atmosphere was relaxing. We would definitely come again to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Thank you for excellent service.

We went as a group of eight to celebrate a birthday - 6 had never been to Three Blue Ducks before, 2 had been to TBD at "The Farm" on the way to Byron Bay.
We had a great time. If you are thinking of it as a special event or get together it is great - great food, excellent friendly attentive staff, great atmosphere and setting.
Expect to pay - the evening can be pricey especially if you take on wine but still very good.
If you like TBD Brisbane you have to visit TBD Byron ("The Farm") - two totally different settings, totally different styles, but both with fine food well prepared and presented, good wine, friendly staff, great value, a good times. EXCELLENT !!

Food was beautifully presented and flavorful. The location of the restaurant is impressive but a rude and unprofessional staff member at reception almost ruined our special occasion. I won’t return because I felt as if the restaurant is run by people with no real interest in the whole experience of the diner and at the prices charged I expect to feel welcome.

Made a booking a few days in advance for Sunday roast as advertised. Went to the effort of getting a train from the Gold Coast to Brisbane especially for the meal, only to be told when we got there it was sold out. Very disappointed at the time and expense we went to.

We made the booking using Open table and had probably the worst seat in the restaurant. It was against the back wall and one of us (a couple)had to sit facing the wall. We weren’t impressed. We did request another table and were offered one on the basis we were out by 7.30pm from our 6.30pm booking. Initially we we told there was no other options. This didn’t give us enough time. In addition (and this was the main issue for us) the doors to the deck were open (middle of winter can you believe) and the cold air flowed across to the back of the restaurant- our table. So we spent an uncomfortable evening. Very average. Food and service were good.

Thanks for the 4-stars to accompany the great feedback on the food and service from our team, however we are so sorry to hear your experience was impacted by the table allocation. It was a busy evening but we always do our best to accommodate all table requests so again we apologise we could not on this occasion. We also appreciate the feedback regarding the cold air and have taken this on board for future. We hope we can welcome you back again to deliver a top experience from start to finish.

Great location & ambience. Food good. Service appalling!

Booked for a long boozy Saturday lunch only to be told by multiple different staff that they needed the table back at 5pm to the point it actually became quite rude. Staff clearly more interested in getting a break between meal service than making more money.

Not offered anything more to drink after bottle number two. Could of stayed and continued in to dinner but not an option after essentially being kicked out at 5pm so continued on elsewhere.

The food was fabulous. The only little disappointing thing was the $10 charge for sparkling water for 2 people. As you are asked if you want still or sparkling as soon as you’re seated (before looking at menu) diners should be informed that it’s $5 each for sparkling.

The specials weren't very well explained. Ordered the cobia special, was served a salad in the head. Asked for wine with dinner, was served immediately, even before my cocktail made it to the table. Took over an hour for the mains to arrive. They apologized, offered no consideration. First and last time there. Skip it and go somewhere in the city. They certainly don't care about your dining experience, the food or the service, sorry doesn't cut that one.
