We were walk ins, not staying in the hotel and we were greeted warmly. We had breakfast here this morning and we couldn't fault anything. The latte was great; smooth and perfect temperature, the hot chocolate was delicious. We ordered the Motion breakfast it arrived quickly and the poached eggs were cooked perfectly! Great service and a perfect start to... More

This restaurant is in the Marriott Hotel just off the lobby. It is clean and friendly with a bar just off to the right open entering the hotel. There is also patio dining.

Really enjoyed the evening, found seafood to be fresh and ample. Desserts were very tasty too and good selection. Special mention to our waiter Carlos who provided impeccable service. Will definitely return

We had the set menu as part of a package accomodation deal and really enjoyed it. Service was very good and the steak and veggies were cooked to perfection, with a very nice sauce. The only criticism is the tables were very close together and it was not a private meal.

Set in the Brisbane Marriott the Motion Bar and Grill offers good food but the setting is not ideal. Located next to the M Bar in a large open space it is noisy and not a relaxing space. The decor and furniture is starting to look tired and is in need of a refresh.

The food was amazing, I had the beef tenderloin and it was buttery soft and everything on the dish was delicious! My hubby had the Scotch fillet with a sliver of Moreton Bay Bug meat on it with a huge salad, he wished he'd ordered what I did. Dessert was delicious, the pavlova was amazing and the sticky date pudding... More

Service was horrendous. We had to constantly wave/flag a waiter to order drink/s. Was never offered or given table water. Never asked how our meals were. We were rushed out after 45 minutes (we had booked the 3 hour seafood buffet). Food was basic and we did not get our money's worth (we paid $192 for 2 people).
