This the third time visiting Three Blue Ducks and I was very disappointed, mainly with the service. It was slow, we had to constantly ask for things including our mains as they hadn't been entered into the "system". I also felt the the menu and wine lists need to be refreshed.
Food was delicious and very tasty. Was disappointed after ordering oysters that they’ve ran out. So instead ordered prawns as a replacement and I don’t like prawns as much. Was a bit pricey though at $30 however, they were great and to me were the best prawns I’ve had. (You do have to shell your own prawns though)
Had the porchetta for mains and I also enjoyed that. Pork skin was perfectly crispy and had no chewy bits.
Service was good.
Overall the food is a bit pricey but the food has a lot of great taste. Cocktails also fantastic, we had the midnight bliss (again they’ve ran out of charcoal that is part of the cocktail - but the cocktail was still good).
I would definitely come back to eat here again. 😋
Lovely food, great location and friendly staff however, probably not the most suitable restaurant for a celiac as food can be mixed up and given to the wrong people.
Food was amazing, am looking forward to going back again soon.
Delectable food at a reasonable price (depending what you order). Amazing view of Southbank as you’re dining, with the only slight downside being the loud music from a downstairs bar rising up to us in the early evening. We were outside on the balcony so it was quite intrusive, however it went quieter at a later time so we could enjoy chatting without competing with it. Lovely waiter who was so friendly and helpful.
Great evening with friends - shared all our plates so able to try lots of dishes- whole fish was fabulous. Friendly and efficient service. Great view although we started to get cold later in the evening- bring a jacket ..
We’re so glad to hear that your Three Blue Ducks experience delivered 5-stars! Our sharing concept is definitely the perfect way to indulge in a variety of our dishes and thank you for taking the time to mention the efforts of our awesome team which we will be sure to pass on. We hope to see you back again soon to experience more of our delicious menu.
Really tasty food and great service
So great to read that you loved our delicious food and the service provided by our amazing team! We hope to see you again soon.
Wine I requested was served warm and told they did not have any cold sav blanc.
Overall service was very poor and it was not a busy night
I called 3blue ducks restaurant on Saturday evening to express my concerns regarding our dinner experience on Thursday 6th June. I was told that somebody would call me back. After no call back, I then wrote a review on open table.
My question now is why my review is the only one not answered by Hotel W, when other reviews after mine have all had a reply
Thank you Peter for taking the time to leave some feedback from your recent visit and allowing us the opportunity to look into this with the respective teams. We’re really sorry and disappointed to hear of the service mishaps that occurred during your visit, please be assured this is not indicative of the high level of service our team prides itself on.

Beautiful atmosphere, lovely staff, excellent sommelier, and super yum food.
We’re so glad to hear that your Three Blue Ducks experience delivered 5-stars! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we hope to see you drop by again soon to indulge in more of our menu.
Great Riverside spot. Visit and pick a table first as there are some lesser locations with not much view. New and busy
Thanks for the review Matt, it’s so great to hear that you enjoyed our stellar location overlooking the Brissy River! We hope to see you again soon.
Food was delicious, excellent service.
Ordered bread as a starter but it came out with the main meal, that wasn't ideal. But apart from that an amazing experience!
We’re so thrilled to hear that you loved our delicious dishes and the service provided by our awesome team! Thank you for your feedback regarding the timings of the food which has been shared with our team for follow-up. We hope we can welcome you back again soon!
Lovely evening and outlook. Wait staff few and far between so took a long time to order and get drinks. Food was great but took a long time to arrive between courses. Overall a lovely evning and meal but let down by service.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review SandM. Whilst it’s great to read that you enjoyed the food, we’re sorry to hear that the service didn’t hit the mark, this is certainly not where we strive to be and your valuable feedback has been shared with the team as we are always looking for ways to improve on the service side. We hope there will be an opportunity to welcome you back again to deliver top-notch service as it should have been the first time around to match our delicious menu.
Really good food at the right price.
Went for my birthday with my husband and 2 kids (10 and 8 years old). They have declared it their new favourite restaurant (a title previously held by Spirit House at Yandina)
Perfect mix of fantastic food but with a relaxed enough atmosphere to take kids.
Had trouble deciding on a Main as there were 4 that sounded so good - I don’t think I would have been disappointed no matter what I had.
Had the creme brûlée for dessert and it was perfect
Definitely be back again
Thanks Amanda for the fantastic review and for choosing Three Blue Ducks Brisbane for your birthday celebrations! It’s brilliant to hear that your family have declared us as their new fave restaurant (such a compliment!) and that you were able to treat yourself to our delicious crème brulee. We cannot wait to welcome you all back again soon!
Amazing food, service and spectacular views of the river. A new favourite to add to our regular ladies lunches!
So great to hear that you loved your time with us at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane! Thanks for the review Suzanne and we look forward to welcoming you back for more ladies lunches soon.
Amazing food, great for a cheeky date night. If you get a seat in the main area the view of Southbank is amazing, otherwise you get a great view of some on ramps. Our waiters were amazing and the staff were all around fantastic. On the more expensive side but worth it
Thank you for the date night recommendation TiarniJ! We are very pleased to read you had a 5-star evening with us at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane and really appreciate the fab feedback on our team. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
Good food, but despite having a lot of staff it was hard to get waiter attention, long periods of waiting, yet a table spending big on wine had 2 waiters all over them. Food was tasty, the flat bread starter was the highlight (needed a bit more bread) to go with that favabean dip. Mains were ok, small but tasty, and dessert was delicious but tiny, micro herbs were amazing. Room was cold. Would come again, but there are others I'd go back to first. Breakie was great though!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Whilst we’re glad to hear that you loved our buffet brekky, we're sorry to read that the service didn’t reach the same level.

Thanks Tom and we hope to speak to you soon.

The view is spectacular and we loved the atmosphere. All the staff we dealt with were super friendly and very attentive. The food was just perfect. The steak was cooked perfectly. The seafood platter was generous and everything was superb. We will definitely be back.

Wow thank you Grace for the brilliant review, we’re so thrilled to hear that your Three Blue Ducks experience exceeded your expectations from start to finish! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
What a wonderful night we had at Three Blue Ducks! The service is so good and then the food is the cream on the cake. Then comes the view .. it is all Wow Wow Wow!!!
Can’t wait to dine here again.
Thank you so much for the outstanding review Matt, we’re thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful time with us! Indulging in our delicious food while taking in the stellar river views is certainly a highlight at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane and we can’t wait to have you back dining with us again.
We had been to ‘Three Blue Ducks’ in Byron Bay, loved the concept and ambience, love the freshly produced veggies part of the meals that comes with dishes, but the meat dish ordered was not that good, was not the one mentioned on the menu and I would have liked pork dish cook properly-not undercooked. My expection somewhat with Brisbane’s one was slightly higher.... happy to try one at W hotel in Brisbane, out of the 5 dishes we ordered including kids meal (pasta sauce too sour, should have just requested simple plain pasta cooked with butter and sauce aside. BBQ chicken a bit too spicy for my kids), only two were enjoyable. We would go back there again to give it another go and order different dishes.
Thanks Val for taking the time to leave a review and for allowing our team the opportunity to speak to you personally about your visit. Once again we’re sorry to hear that the kids meal wasn’t quite at the same level as the other dishes, we do appreciate your constructive feedback which has been shared with our team of Chefs to ensure improvements are made. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again to experience more of our delicious dishes and deliver 5-stars across the board.
I rated the food only 4 stars because it took a while to come out. The experience as a whole I really enjoyed. I was definitely impressed by the service. Our waiter was attentive, informative and felt genuinely enjoyment working at TBD.
It’s brilliant to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us Nelly and we really appreciate you taking the time to recognise the efforts of our amazing team, this is the best thank you for the incredible job they do for us! We’re sorry to hear there was a slight delay in the food service however your constructive feedback has been forwarded to the team. We hope we can welcome you back again soon!
Venue was great, food was great, service was great. The only issue we encountered was the air conditioning. We were sitting directly under a vent and it was freezing. We understand that this was out of control of the Three Blue Ducks staff but maybe something that could be discussed with W Hotel, to be able to alter the temperature. It was a cold night and we just straight into a cold restaurant. Experience would have been far more enjoyable had we not been freezing.
So brilliant to hear that you enjoyed our dishes and the service provided by our amazing team! We were sorry to hear that the air conditioning temp affected your overall experience, however we do appreciate the feedback and the Engineering team are following this one up with the cold months now approaching. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
Great space and food was delicious. It was a cool autumn night and all the doors were wide open so my tip would be to wear warmish clothes. Also we wanted to try the bio-diverse wine list but weren't thrilled with the rose we chose. The regular wine list was fantastic tho. I would go again and bring friends!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Lily, it’s so great to hear that you loved our delicious dishes! We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit and our team are on-hand to help guide the wine match too.
Brilliant! We all had such a wonderful evening. The service was top class, the food was amazing, and the view was spectacular!
Thanks Shanti for the brilliant review, we’re so thrilled to hear that you loved the delicious food and top service provided by our team! We hope we can welcome you back again soon to indulge in more of our menu and enjoy the incredible views (never-ending Brissy sunshine through winter!).
Excellent venue. Great views. It was fairly quiet when I visited for lunch and the staff were very attentive. Wine list is varied and delightful
We’re so glad to hear that you loved your dining experience at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
The food was disappointing, everything is too salty. The food quality is not worth the price we pay. And it is very noisy at the restaurant where it is hard to hold a conversation.
Thank you for the review although we’re very sorry to hear that the food was disappointing, this is certainly not indicative of the high-quality dishes our team prides itself on and your constructive feedback has been forwarded to our Chefs. We would really appreciate the opportunity to speak to you personally to discuss your feedback, we have sent you a message with our contact details so if possible please reach out to us and will be in touch.

Enjyoyed the view great table location unfortunately the mussels had to go back as half had not opened then had to wait for more to be served.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review although we’re very sorry to hear that the mussels were not at the level they should have been, this is not indicative of the high-quality dishes our team prides itself on and your valuable feedback has been shared with our Chefs. We have since tried to contact you via phone to discuss your feedback further, if possible please give us a call back as we would really appreciate the opportunity to speak to you personally. Thanks again Amy.
Great food, more options preferred, quite noisy, lovely setting, would go again
We’re so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Dining with a business colleague from London. 3rd visit to this restaurant on business. Starters, mains and wine, two chicken dish mains, one appeared well undercooked, bright pink/red and inedible. Made our waiter aware approached by manager, long explaination provided with reassurance the item had been fully cooked and pink/redness reflected the method and that my colleague should not be alarmed. Wasn’t helpful in explaining why the stark contrast with my dish (same dish) which looked ‘normal’. No confident that the dish was adequately cooked. No offer of replacement or consession against bill ( I didn’t request either). Felt the level of service was poor eg wine glasses removed from table even though a full bottle of unopened wine was present - had to request glasses. Baases on this experience I will not return or recommend. It is a real shame as the hotel bar and restaurant view and layout are fantastic
Hi Frank, we’re incredibly sorry and disappointed to hear of the issues encountered during your visit, this is not indicative of the high quality food & service our team prides itself on and your valuable feedback has been forwarded for follow-up. We would really appreciate the opportunity to speak to you personally about your feedback and we have sent you a message with our contact details. Thanks again Frank and we hope we will have the opportunity to speak to you soon.
Great food and fantastic service. Was perfect for a group. Wine list was expensive but less expensive options (med-bodied red and white) were excellent wines. We were seated next to toilets and kitchen, despite an earlier week booking, so was a bit noisy and lost ambience, but view to the river was lovely. Highly recommend the lamb shoulder and while fish.
Thanks for the fantastic review Kelly, it’s brilliant to hear that you enjoyed our dishes and the service provided by our awesome team which we will be sure to pass on. We’re sorry to hear that the table allocation impacted on your experience, however your feedback regarding the noise levels has been forwarded to the team for follow-up. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again.
Beautiful dinner. Every mouthful was delicious. Shared tasting plates were scrumptious. Porchetta was sublime.
160 degree view of the south side lights gave us the perfect backdrop to match the meal.
Thank you for the brilliant review of Three Blue Ducks Brisbane, it’s so great to hear that you were able to indulge in a variety of our share plates and the porchetta dish is a definite fave on the menu! The restaurant is certainly the perfect spot to take in the views of the Brissy River and South Bank while enjoying our delicious food, and we hope to see you back dining with us again soon!
Very good food and attentive service. A bit noisy and overall setting a bit below expectations (W, views...).
Thanks Ulric for taking the time to leave a review, it’s so great to hear that you enjoyed the food and service provided by our amazing team! We were sorry to read that the noise levels and overall setting didn’t quite reach your expectations, Three Blue Ducks have brought their laidback setting to the CBD inviting the outdoors in, however we do appreciate your valuable feedback which has been taken on board. We hope we can have the opportunity to welcome you back again.
Amazing, for the third time we went there we couldn't have asked for better food and great portions 😊
Thanks Alessandro for the amazing review, we’re so thrilled to hear that our delicious food has enticed you back for more! We hope to welcome you back to Three Blue Ducks Brisbane again soon.
