It's my 2nd time there. Once with a group of girlfriends, and now with my family. Food is not bad, the service is excellent, and treated my 4 year like a guest too rather than just the guest's kid

The "KFD" and Carpaccio are amongst the cities most delectable food offerings, yet the remaining dishes lacked the consistency and quantity to justify further praise. The service is decent and the space beautifully fitted out, yet one still is left wondering whether such accolades would be deserved were Public located in Brisbane's more competitive food-Meccas further south.

We dined here for the first time as part of the Food Festival in July and were really impressed. Ordered the shared plates of brisket and three vegetable dishes, all were delicious. The service was excellent too. Public has one hat but is very reasonably priced for the quality of food. Would definitely dine here again.

My husband and I dined at the Public and really enjoyed the atmosphere, quite surprising considering the entrance from the street, looks like you are going into a food court. The staff were efficient and pleasant and the food great.

We dined as a family at this relaxed urban gem for the first time yesterday evening. Disappointment certainly never arrived a variety of share plates danced on our palates and provided a variety of flavours along with textural delights.The staff were informative,attentive and enhanced our dining experience although they apologized for any delay with large groups present we happily lingered over our dishes and appreciated the taste sensations.If you appreciate good food and don't need to gorge to be satisfied don"t hesitate, if you are looking for dishes piled high perhaps not for you. Will we go back a definate yes. Thankyou for one of the most delicious meals I have enjoyed.
