Presentation is fantastic and the textures were really well curated but the crayfish was over cooked to the point of being rubbery and at the price :(

We had a superb experience at Sidart during our travels in Auckland. Not only did the staff go above and beyond to squeeze us in and accommodate our sleeping baby, but the food lingers in memory even a month later. Tuesdays are a very fun night to visit Sidart as you get to taste dishes that are still in progress.... More

Situated at the back of an old theatre building, the approach to the restaurant will have you thinking where on earth you are going. Had never been before, so had no expectations. Once inside a wonderland of culinary joy unfolds. We enjoyed the Chef's degustation menu that gets released on the first Tuesday of each month. The food was divine... More

My husband and I went here with my sister. We had the 9 courses. We stayed here for 4 hours. Heard a lot about this restaurant which made us want to try it. Parking was easy to find. Have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant. I am unsure if there is a lift available.... More

We ate at Sidart after being given a voucher as a wedding gift - it was one of our best gifts! We tried the 9 course degustation with matching wine and so pleased we did. Every course delivered was like a work of art and we felt quite sad at cutting into them however once we tried them, the food... More

I was lucky enough to be taken to the champagne & lobster lunch & had very high hopes given a foodie colleague said this place was the BEST. Well ... apparently it had been a $50 for 5 courses affair that had suddenly become a $75 for 3 courses menu that quite frankly left me underwhelmed & hungry. First, lovely... More

Simply divine food - beautifully prepared and presented. Certainly deserves Cuisine Magazine's "best restaurant 2014" title. We did the Tuesday test kitchen menu - 8 courses for $80. You can choose to have the wine pairings for another $80 - but that would have been a LOT of wine! The food was imaginative and surprising - textures and temperatures that... More

It was our first visit to Sidart. The eight course degustation menu (on a Tuesday) was on the eight most popular dishes in the last ten years. Wow!! It appealed. The dining was certainly an experience of cuisine artistry and in a symphony of tastes and textures which wows the senses. For a fine dining restaurant, we felt that it... More

Once again we have enjoyed one of the best meals in Auckland City. Fantastic cuisine, taste sensations, excellent service and also a great view. We love dining at Sids and always look forward to his new and innovative degustation menus. This is a restaurant one must always return and tell your friends about it.

We went to the Tuesday test kitchen - $80 per head for an 8 course degustation - an outstanding experience. It is not just the food - which is soooo different! - but the whole experience. The service was unobtrusive but attentive - always there when you needed something. It was great they actually ask you if you want a... More
