Pony Dining did not disappoint. We visited Pony on Wed 30/11/16 for the first time and can't wait to return. We sat beside the windows with a fabulous view of the Story Bridge and river. The service was friendly and fast despite the restaurant being busy. Our waiter, Ben, made sure we were well cared for. For starters, we shared... More

I went out for dinner to Pony. Being one of my favourite restaurants in Brisbane and recently moving down to NSW I was craving a slice of steak and that ambience. Love the idea of the open kitchen makes it so personal with the chefs cooking behind the pass. The Gin cocktails were amazing idea and thoroughly enjoyed. The meals... More

I was really excited to go here, but, unfortunately was very underwhelmed. The food was not worth the price tag. It was ok, but not to the standard you would expect at all. The wine menu is way too expensive and they need to add a few more affordable bottles to the list. To be honest, I doubt I'd ever... More

Ate on the balcony that over looked the river. the view was breathtaking. The oysters were out of this world and fresh to death and the bartender whipped up some incredible cocktails. Great variety with the main meals. the only reason for not 5 stars was the 'credit card surcharge' that was applied to my bill even though i paid... More

Dined as a 4 here in October and whilst the view is good especially from balcony( we were inside) the service and food was average. The waiter seemed to always forget to refill wine glasses from the station that our bottles were kept and food took a long time to come out. What was delivered was good but lack of... More

Food is nice and have had many business meals here. Wine Selection could be better value for money and the quality but overall not a bad venue for the area.

I loved dining at Pony. We had the privilege of dining on the balcony, and it was beautiful. The only thing that would have made the experience better would have been different music to suit the restaurant/theme. Having top 20 hits playing was a little distracting from the amazing décor and delightful fine dining experience. Food was absolutely delicious though,... More

Caught up with some friends and we were allocated a table outside on the balcony facing the river. It was a beautiful night so the table location was perfect. We shared the 1.2kg lamb should between 4 of us as well as 4 sides which were more than enough. The lamb was unbelievable, it just peeled off the bone....so tender.... More

Called to book for the evening and mentioned it was my first wedding anniversary so was hoping for a nice view of the river outside. The lady on the phone said she would make a note and that they try their best to accomodate customers requests. On arrival we were seated at a table on the balcony with beautiful Story... More

We dined here recently as part of a business group and were very impressed with the very attentive wait staff. This is a very busy restaurant with a large turnover in clientele over a Saturday night but the staff do it very well. The food was amazing and caters for todays palates and the restaurant is located up above the... More
