Jeremy's Bistro

Brisbane CBD

Ken dined on Tue, 19th Nov 2013 (7)

I don't think they read our request beforehand. I requested a deep-end table but the waitless asked us to have a very front table. I asked her to change it and she showed her very disgustful face to us (very unprofessional! Is she a German working holiday maker?). Anyway the restaurant changed our table as per my request but the waitless's attitude instantly ruined our dinner. I used the restaurant some times for business meetings and I enjoyed it very much so I took my family last night however we could not enjoy their services. The food and drink were fantastic so it was pitty. Hope they will read my feedback. I won't go back there for a while. Anyway we thank their chef who did a very good job for us.
