    We had a wonderful short course degustation menu with matching wines.It is one of the very few times all wines have matched the food & I have been to many a degustation. The food was very good as well as the staff were willing to have a bit of a chat as well which is nice . Very well done

    We had a very nice evening. The setting is luxurious and special. Overall the food was very good, but a couple of courses were ordinary eg the seafood stew. The matched wines were interesting and presented with a depth of information that was very professional. The waitstaff were personable, but we waited ages for a first drink, despite asking a few times. Then the relaxed pace of serving the courses meant that they had started setting up for the next night before we had finished our dessert. I find that very rude, and it seemed unusual for an establishment presenting itself as a fine diner.

    The food here is exceptional and a class above, while the service we received was top notch as well. The only negative we had was the "lack" of an a la carte menu (even though their website states that it's available), when it is available, just not made known. The push towards their degustation options was a slight turn-off. While we would have liked to have tried one of the degustation menus, we didn't have time so wanted a la carte. However, their a la carte menu was just the dishes on the degustation menus anyway so it was all good. And to reiterate, what we had (cuttlefish entree, duck ravioli main, pork ribs main, and citrus dessert) was the best food we had in Brisbane all week.

    Amazing food! Overall, the whole night was really lovely. The lady who was serving our wine was incredible, she made all the wines super interesting, and got the whole table involved. The food was incredible, we had vegan and vegetarian options which were excellent. Our main server Jess really put a dampener on the whole night though. She made some really inappropriate comments, which did not land well and were downright offensive. She was extremely abrupt - giving us next to no time to organise drinks, she made us feel as though she was in a massive rush and we were an inconvenience to her. She made those having the vegan and vegetarian options feel so belittled, and humiliated, they wanted to walk out. She made us feel very unwelcome and that we were just a big inconvenience. The rest of the staff were excellent!

    The food and service was amazing however when I booked an expensive special evening for my partners birthday at this fine dining restaurant I didn’t expect to be listening to a screaming toddler at a nearby table all of our service. Very disappointed.

    Deer Duck Bistro - BrisbaneResponded on 23 May 2022Hi Kellie, thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear you were happy with the food and the service. Unfortunately, we couldn't control what was happening at a table next to you. Though, we always recommend our customers to leave their children at home and enjoy the date night, however we can't ban couples with children from entering if they are unable to leave their children at home with someone. We are truly sorry that your partner's birthday was affected by it. Warm regards, DDB Team
