Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came highly recommended and lived up to expectations. Sides were too large for just a couple dining….shame you can’t order it for two, so we left a lot of wasted food which was a shame, but we wanted to try the Brussel sprouts and potatoes....Ordered the small sized lamb to share and it did not disappoint. Had one fish tartare cracker to start, it was amazing and glad we only ordered one as it was large, and meal sizes and sides were huge so glad we didn’t go overboard with starter. Really enjoyed our meal and apple cider was a winner!!! Perfect night to celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary.More

This place was a great experience. We booked the private dining room for our group dinner and it was a wonderful evening filled with great food and fantastic service. The ambience and decor of this restaurant is also amazing. If you get a chance, try...the lamb and the chicken dishes and also the potato’s are very tasty too. Wine and cocktail menu is extensive with plenty of options. You must try this place if you are looking for a great place for dinner. Big should out to our incredible waitress Tamzin Thanks again for very memorable eveningMore

Social Eating House used to always be our go to for an amazing lunch……the food, cocktails and wines are always outstanding, as was the service until our most recent visit. I can not fathom how a serial offender of being rude to us and other...friends (it has become a but of a joke amongst us) has landed a role here, a management role by the looks……unbelievable! We have experienced this staff members rudeness and arrogance in a nearby venue some time ago, and at two other Burleigh venues in the past, it is clear he moves around a lot…..can only assume it has something to do with his attitude towards customers. I appreciate staffing can be hard but I am confident you could do better than employing a very pompous, racist and extremely rude person. The first 20 minutes chat was taken up by our amazement of how/why this person landed a job at one of Gold Coasts best restaurants. I don’t want to dismiss the fact that the food was amazing…..as always, but wouldn’t mind a roster so we can continue to dine here and not have to be in the same room as Adam!More

Dined here with a small group of friends on a Sunday evening. We had made a reservation a long time before hand. Our dining experience was fantastic, and perhaps one of the best we've ever had as a group. The service was excellent and attentive....The servers were polite, happy to engage in banter and also provided helpful recommendations for what to order. The food. Oh my, so good. Starters - we have baguettes, olives, oysters, scallops, empanadas. Great! Mains - whew! We had the slow cooked lamb, it was so bloody tasty. And the chicken, best we've ever had. So moist, a delight to devour! Dessers - chocoate ganache and cheesecake mousse were ordered. Didn't dance on our tastebuds the way the rest of our food did, but still nice. Highly recommend dining here if you're a visitor to the Gold Coast and you're wanting a pleasurable dining experience with top-tier meals and service.More

Brilliant food, great staff We had seared scallops with a great seaweed butter and shiso followed by the 12 hour slow-cooked lamb shoulder and the chargrilled chicken with sage, confit garlic and lemon. All were perfect. We topped it off with a lovely 2022 Barossa...Sons of Eden ‘Zephyrus’ Shiraz. Just amazingMore

A wonderful birthday lunch was celebrated at this busy Gold Coast restaurant. Adam and his team need to be commended for the fabulous food and terrific service. From the beginning, booking the day and arranging the meal with some variations, they have been excellent to...communicate with. A delicious meal and lovely memories! Thank you.More
