Went to SidArt last night for the test kitchen 8 course degustation. Absolutely amazing.! Its hard to choose one highlight. Food was delicious and plated beautifully. Service was excellent and the small restaurant meant the staff could pay attention to each table and provide great service. We especially liked being given the menu in an envelope so we had the...

We always enjoy eating food we didn't know existed. The menu here delivers unique cuisine with well balanced flavours. The service is also great. Our only criticism was the Chardonnay we chose, it was not good. They made up for it with a great dessert wine pairing however.

Being rated as the #1 restaurant in Auckland I went in with very high expectations. I made reservations for 6:30 requesting no pork and no alcohol, and they were happy to oblige. Just before my reservation time something came up and I had to postpone my dinner by 1 hour, and they didn't make a fuss about it at all.... More

It was our wedding anniversary, so we thought we would go somewhere special and it was exactly that. Greated on arrival, looked after with water, menu's etc. They had a great wine selection, we decided on a nice French champagne to start & then the wine pairing with the degustation menu of 5 courses ... 9 courses were also on...

We booked for the Tuesday test kitchen and there are a few things I don't eat and my husband neglected to tell the restaurant so I was a bit nervous. I opted to open the envelope to see in advance what I would be eating and there were two courses that I wasn't fussed on. Having said that I ate... More

Fine dining at the best. We choose the degustation with matching wines. The food was beautiful and showed the chefs respect for produce and passion. Wines were beautifully matched. Sidart thank you for a memorable evening, your staff well versed and charming are a credit to you as well. Would highly recommend and dine again

We went there in July last year for my boyfriends birthday and we were pretty amazed by the quality of service and food. We took the food and wine matching and it was an unbeliveable experience!!! Will definitely be back!!!

From the street SidArt doesn't seem too impressive, but looks can be deceiving. There is no A LA CARTE Menu and you better have reservations because the restaurant is small and only does a single seating per evening. The only real decision you need to make is whether to have the five course or ten course tasting menu and if... More

We visited Sidart on a recent trip to Auckland, having searched for good restaurants in the city. The reservation process was smooth, but required a phone call from from our home to the restaurant as we were visiting from overseas (tip: use Skype if cost is an issue). The restaurant is well situated in Ponsonby, accessed by a stairway at... More
