Overview

With floor-to-ceiling windows, classy cream coloured booths and impossibly high ceilings, this Fortitude Valley restaurant has one of the finest dining rooms in Brisbane — and it does an impossibly good steak, too.

With a mini grand-piano in the centre of the room, it's the kind of place you'll want to have dressed up for. Got a hot date? Bring them here. High powered business meeting? This is the joint. Trying to prove to your parents you're not a bum? Welcome, take a seat (just remember to bring your wallet). When class is called upon in Brisbane, SK Steak and Oyster have you covered.

The luxurious seafood platter at SK Steak & Oyster in Brisbane.

The menu starts off with its selection of oysters, served natural with a side of champagne mignonette. Its selection of seafood cocktails includes Fraser Island spanner crab, Mooloolaba king prawns and Tasmanian rock lobster, while the seafood platters range from affordable to "actually, Dad you can get this bill", and include the likes of oysters, prawns, scallops, lobster, mussels and crab. The raw seafood options include a king salmon tartare with shallots and capers and yellowfin tuna with mayonnaise, while the hot seafood delivers Moreton Bay Bugs and Southern rock lobster.

From the grill, and let's be honest, that's why we're here, enjoy a steak Diane with cognac and Worcestershire, a veal schnitzel with lemon and tartare or a wagyu burger served American style.

The steaks include a 180-gram petit fillet Angus at the lower end, while the costlier options max out with a Kiwami BMS 9+ 400-gram New York cut Sirloin. Pair these with a mixed lead salad, some honey roasted carrots and lobster mac and cheese.

The wine list here is impeccable, with literally hundreds of bottles available. Be sure to seek out one of the highly skilled sommeliers when searching for the perfect drop. There are some great wines by the glass, too, with standouts including an Australian 2021 grüner veltliner, a Rias Baixas Albariño and a Henschke shiraz from Eden Valley. SK Steak & Oyster is a luxe fine-diner in Brisbane that any surf and turf lover should save for a special occasion.
