I was sad the Marco Polo restaurant had closed,however I recently went to the Lab restaurant and was surprised to see some of my favourite dishes were now available there! I had the XO scallops and side of fried rice was so yummy! Lovely place fantastic service but the food was especially delicious!

As soon as we walked in we knew this place was special. The staff were very attentive and made us feel welcome. The whole menu looks amazing, and our order was some of the most delicious food we have eaten! We were treated with a chocolate plate as a congratulations from the staff....we will definitely be back!

We visited The Lab on a Monday night and right from the moment we arrived it was everything we hoped for. Quiet piano music in the background, helpful staff, excellent wine selection and delisious food. We enjoyed fish mains and they were cooked perfectly with a side salad, it was all too good. I can't wait to come back and... More

My husband and I dined here whilst staying at the Hotel and I have to say it was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had. We ordered the Chateau Briand and a bottle of Sam Neil's Two Paddock Pinot. Exceptional service, food and atmosphere. I could not fault it and I will certainly be back Thank... More

It is easy to overlook place like this especially when connected or associated with a place like the Treasury but this is certainly worth a look. Food always plays the main focus fo me but dressed with some old world charm and good service, this combination makes for a great dining experience. The food was well presented and as described...

Desserts were from a new menu range and delicious. Ordered 4 different desserts so as to share - all yum. The service was prompt and the staff friendly and... More

Came I here because we wanted to experience a great meal in Brisbane. I ordered the short rib, my friends order the lamb and steak. All were mediocre at best. The short rib was extremely fatty, the lamb and steak were dry. Not what we expected at all for such an expensive restaurant. When we received the bill, they had... More

I ate both dinner and breakfast at the Lab, mainly because of its convenience to my accommodation. Both meals were good, not great, the service was good not great and the atmosphere one of people looking for a meal, not to dine. It could be much better. On balance, value was good, not great.

The service as is the food is impeccable. Palate cleansers are brought to the table in between courses or a new dish may be presented as a taster.

Well what a wonderful surprise . My wife and I popped in for desert and a wine and it was superb. We had the mixed desert between us and everything on the plate made our tastebuds dance. Combined with a nice glass is botrytis we couldn't have had a better end to the evening. Staff were great and didn't rush... More
