Came with a colleague for some drinks downstairs followed by dinner. Malt lager on tap was excellent, then moved upstairs for the mains - friendly service, meals served at appropriate times and very tasty.
Amazing food and service. Eggplant dumplings are to die for. Awesome bar for a drink before / after dinner.
Brilliant for entertaining professional clients and colleagues.
Celebrated a family members 50th over dinner. Had a lovely dinner overall. Missing a few elements throughout our dining experience. Would like to go back and try again sometime in the future. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Ambiance was the best element of the night.
Amazing food, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere :)
New favourite restaurant in Brisbane!
I love this restaurant. The food is amazing and great service. The ambiance is beautiful with live piano and heritage vibe.
Good location, spacious, comfortable setup, not noisy, very good for a business lunch. Food is very good and service is friendly.
Such flavoursome food. Great ambience, staff and wine list. Would definitely come back here again
Highly recommend! The food was delicious, the service was amazing. All round great experience.
Great good, great service and lovely environment. Would go back again. Best restaurant in Brisbane!
I had received a call to confirm a 50 aud deal for Champagne and gift plus a 6 course fixed menu .i did. Confirm the champagne and gift deal but I hadn’t confirmed if I needed ala carte or 6 course menu ..
when we reached there they assigned a table after some confusion and then removed champagne glasses and rose from the table before we took the seat...I figured they had messed the request.Would be weird to stop them doing that as it was Valentine’s Day so I kept quiet .. I didn’t pay for the deal promised but it was a let down !
Food was good (duck I didn’t like as much -felt salty) and drinks were good as well.
Was noisy from the kitchen side ! I can understand in the attic it could get noisy as it was packed with people but kitchen chef went on calling for service which was clearly audible from where I was seated time and again !
It was just alright. The food is great but the service and the ambience let the food down. Every meal we ordered, the server gave the wrong person the wrong meal.... and there were just two of us. I ordered the octopus, husband ordered the zucchini. With zero interest in doing their job right, I was given zucchini and husband was handed my octopus. Later when I ordered beef, my husband ordered the fish, the server assumed the woman ordered the fish and the guy ordered the beef. Honestly, this was annoying. Later, we were asked if we wanted another drink. After my husband ordered his beer, the server dashed off before even taking my wine order. The food was delicious but the weird paint on the walls upstairs makes the place look cheaper than it is and the amateur hour service lets the chef down a bit. If they could sort out the decor and the staff, they’d have a great thing going.
Loved our evening at Malt, from the beautiful exposed beams and brickwork, view out to the leaves of a tree and tall buildings, attentive service, comfy chair to the amazing chargrilled cauliflower, braised octopus and pork jowl with pineapple. Not sold on pork floss with coconut pannacotta but glad we tried it! Malt brownie was the “best dessert I’ve ever had” according to my husband.
Malt Dining keeps on delivering. The food is fantastic, they have a great wine list, and it is idea for vegans and coeliacs alike... even meat eaters will love the vegan dishes. Fantastic job guys.
I have been to Malt Dining several times and I was utterly disappointed this time. I came with my work colleagues to celebrate a milestone for one of my employees. When we arrived there was nobody at the restaurant to seat you. I had to go behind the bar to call someone. Once someone arrived, they were rude, unhelpful and arrogant. Never coming here again.
Truly delicious food and wonderful service. We enjoyed the live pianist.
Overall very good. Just a bit slow with bringing our meals We were voluntarily compensated with a free canapee.
Nice atmosphere with the live music. Great service, food was ok. Usually better.
It was our anniversary, so when we arrived our table had a card congratulating us on our anniversary. The highlight of the night was the pianist player. It created a calm, intimate and warm atmosphere for the night. Food was outstanding. Incredible!!!! And staff were nice and polite.
The new chef's asian fusion menu was a disaster. It was fantastic execution on stupid tragic ideas. Daikon noodle is soaked in beautiful broth but the noodle itself doesn't make any sense. The bak choy side dish was sour because they chopped the bak choy too thin and overcooked it. The flavor was bazaar when having it with the salami puree. The texture is hard to swallow. They also put pork floss on panna cotta for different texture according to their explanation. That's just gross. When the floss soaks in the sweet sauce, it tastes so weird. Why don't they just put hair on a pudding? It's disgusting and also gives a different texture to the dish.
But the beef cheek and pork were pretty good because they didn't apply any stupid idea.
Please stick to the previous menu.
It was nice, it was delicate, it worked before, and it will work in the future.
The staff were fabulous and the food was good. Loved the live piano player and the decor made you feel like you could be over in Europe. We had a great night.
I'll be back! Excellent food. Excellent cocktails. Quiet setting near the water. Perfect for a business meeting or weekend brunch.
Excellent! Great service and food was delicious! I would recommend for lunch and dinner.
Had the degustation. It was not as good as last time we ate here which was disappointing. A little turned off by the $15 corkage if you don’t buy your wine from their own bottle shop.
Always well prepared and thought out dishes. The Malt Brownie is worth saving room for
Swordfish stank like day-old prawns, but tasted so bland. It was served on raspberry yoghurt too.
Venue smelt like an old library, you know that dank carpet smell?
No need to return.
What we ordered: swordfish, potatoes, vodka and tap water.
I had a lovely lunch. The menu is small but well done. The fish of the day was snapper and cooked to perfection. I had the cheese of the day and it was awesome. Service was good as well considering there was only one person serving. I didn't have to wait for anything and she was very knowledgeable about the food and wine menu.
Not a big fan of the new menu. Heard the chef was trying an asian fusion.
We have been to Malt quite a few times and have thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience. Unfortunately the new menu was underwhelming and definitely not suitable for my husband who has a seafood allergy. Even the Beef Cheeks had Oyster Sauce in the marinade. We both had trouble choosing meals from the extremely limited menu. The waitress was very nice and quite efficient. We easily chose a very nice wine from the extensive wine list. We were obviously not happy with our meals and were given a free dessert to compensate. The dessert was the chocolate brownie from their old menu and it was delicious but this won't encourage us to return anytime soon.
Absolutely superb! Exceeded our expectations. Have been once before for mother’s day and didn’t think it could have gotten any better! Thanks so much for the great service.
We went on a Tuesday night, were able to purchase a lovely pinor from the trading shop to enjoy with dinner. We have been several times and rate this Brisbane's best restaurant.
What a great place to start and finish the night. Awesome drinks and even better food.
The food and service in Malt is just simply the best, had a great night celebrating with friends
Great food. Degustation menu and paired wines fabulous.
My friend and I had the 8 course with paired wines and it was absolutely amazing.
Much larger then expected and exceeded our expectations.
The service from the staff and the knowledge they had was very impressive.
The dining area had beautiful ambience and lovely decor.
I will definitely be back but also be recommending this place to friends.
Must say for the price we paid we were disappointed with some of our menu selections. We didn't want to bring this to their attention at the time due to the celebratory nature of our dinner at Malt because of the risk of offending our special guest thus affecting the occasion (causing stress). I would not have expected this with the prior reviews I had read. We found the 'temperature' of the pork dish to be quite cool (as if it had been 'sitting' for too long before being served and would normally have sent back for the chef's attention. Another of our party had the mushroom dish and the mushrooms themselves were quite 'full' of what seems water content. I tried some and for someone who eats most things and loves mushrooms I would have found it difficult dish to eat. The desserts were on the unexciting side unfortunately. On the positive side, entrees were tasteful, presentation was great as was the ambiance and service. Unfortunately we won't be back.
The degustation menu showcased mouth watering food with amazing flavour combinations! All it was missing was an extra pasta course to fill us up! Unfortunately we left the venue peckish after devouring the six course menu. This was quite disappointing given the hefty price of dining here.
However we would definitely return for the kangaroo and ginger dish as a main!
My partner and I went for our anniversary dinner and the food was fantastic, plus we got a surprise little card and gift from the team at Malt, which was super sweet.
Their food and pricing is well pitched at the lower end of the fine dining spectrum. Food quality was good and service excellent.
Very good dining experience even as solo diner. Accommodative on last minute requirements. Super friendly service, excellent wine pairing, fresh selected ingredients and good execution. With better visual presentation be even better. maybe the food was served tad too fast. But a memorable very good dinner and will go into my must go place list of Brisbane!
