We had a wonderful night out at Room 81. The Maitre’d was fabulous along with her staff. The food was amazing and the paired wines were perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our night. The food was exquisite and the staff were so professional and friendly. Their knowledge of the food and wines was excellent. Thank you for making our friend’s special birthday treat an amazing experience. We would highly recommend you for any special occasion or just an “I want an amazing dining experience”.

We were quite disappointed with Room 81, given it's reviews in the 2019 agfg ratings, and our experiences with similar high level degustation menus in Australia (Quay, Tsetsuya's, Kiyomi, etc) and in France. The meal was OK, but for the price, we expected much more. For example, the 9 course option described in the AGFA pages, was not available, and many of the dishes described by there were not included. Virtuallly none of the reviews left by agfa members on the agfa site, bore any resemblance to what we had - and those reviews were a major factor in our deciding to eat at Room 81. For example the very first review said: "...I naturally went with the 9 courses with matching wines. At $120 plus $60 with matching wines was absolute bargain. ". We certainly saw no bargain in our $457 bill for two, which also included two cocktails. Except for the scallops (and perhaps the ceviche, and elements of the other dishes), the food tended to be underwhelming, and the matching wines were pretty humdrum. We live at the Gold Coast and will not be giving Room 81 a second chance. Back to Kiyomi!

Very special dinner at Room 81 on 23 Jan, 2019, the staff went out of their way to ensure it was a memorable night for me with some very special extra touches. The menu was fresh and innovative showcasing some of Australia's wonderful flavours, the wait staff extremely knowledgeable about the food being served and nothing was too much trouble. Dietary restrictions were met without compromising on flavour or presentation. This was my 3rd visit to Room 81 if I lived on the Coast as I would be visiting many more times than I have to date.

We enjoyed the 5 course degustation with matched wines. The portions were quite generous so we felt it was just enough for us. Each course was thoughtfully put together and full of flavour - we couldn’t pick a favourite! Service was lovely. Happy to recommend.

We have been to room81 many times and never had an issue, however this time we were extremely disappointed. We had the 12 courses, 2 of which we did not eat or find remotely enjoyable. The two dishes were the apricot and the bone, we were told that 'foodies love these dishes' as though our opinion was invalid. The service from this point slipped significantly. To have a bill of $1000 and walk away annoyed and dissatisfied is not ok. Your staff should learn to respect their customers, perhaps you may have more bookings if this took place.

Great service and food. Enjoyed the experience as an Accor member with discount, however without this it is a bit expensive.

Great night out. Food was exciting and delicious. Wait staff were knowledgeable and appeared to be very proud of the accomplishments of Room 81. Shouldn’t think of Room 81 being another hotel restaurant, rather should think of Room 81 being a stand-alone fine dining establishment.

We had matching wine with the 5 courses and the wine paired beautifully with each course. Would love to have had a fish option as I don’t eat red meat but was told I couldn’t swap anything out and I didn’t enjoy the lamb. Having said that, the rest of the meal was exceptional.

We arrive 10 minutes early and were placed in a particularly poor positioned table, where my head was next to the cash register and back half into the “child friendly” bar. Asked if we could move tables but was told they were booked out and others had specifically asked for specific tables. Similar I was told I should focus on the food. In reply I explained as a too hat restaurant expected a dining experience so not a great start. Anyway 2 groups arrived and subsequently left as they didn’t realize it was a degustation menu (obviously not well advertised). The staff then offered us another table which we took although it still wasn’t great. They really need to look at the layout, even use outside rather than the current configuration. Anyway moving onto the meal. Three of the five courses were very good as were the matching wines. Didn’t rate the first course, a cold cucumber soup. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable especially to put up with my complaint about the table arrangement. May go back, but only if they fix the set up.

We advised our waitress that my wife was a Coeliac and needed Gluten Free meals one hour after leaving she was very sick. As we were leaving the car valet ask did we enjoy our stay and we told her and she called the manager out who said it should not have happened and would report it to the Chef at Room 81, otherwise our stay was good.

The Chocolate mouse was disgusting. The wines with the degustation do not match / enhance the meals, nor did they come out with the meals. Very limited menu. In fact only 2 choices for entree, main and dessert. Or you can choose from 2 very expensive degustation menus. Will not be back

The 5 course meal was delicious, and perfectly presented. The highlight of our evening was our waitress, unfortunately i can not remember her name, but she explained the courses and the flavours to us, and attended to all our needs as required. She was extremely pleasant and a bonus for Restaurant 81.
