Exquisite!

The room is beautifully presented with just enough romantic lighting to set the mood. Very intimate room, I think I counted that it can only seat up to 25 people. The food was to die for - I especially loved the chocolate dessert where they used hydrogen to add a special/scientific touch! Our... read more

loved the wine match option. The people I went with absolutely loved it but again, this degustation did not cater to a vegetarian diet unfortunately =( The atmosphere was lovely and service was amazing but sadly the food was not. Miso soup flavoured Ice cream with squid ink??? NOT tasty!

A cosy atmosphere (almost like eating in someone's home). The staff were great: friendly enough and informative on the food without being intrusive. Had the 5 course meal which was quite enough (you'd need a big appetite to get through the 9 course option). The food itself was interesting: some tastes quite amazing. There was a bit of a theme...

I was given a voucher for my birthday and it was a lovely gift. We ate there on. Tuesday night, with a set menu of 7 courses. Everything looked amazing, it tasted delicious and was like a voyage into the unknown. Go to Sidart for a unique meal

Great night, we had the 8 courses with matching wines each course was an absolute delight. The staff were informative and so lovely.

our party of six came here 3 weeks ago, and the food was spectacular. The waitress was well versed in all the courses...and there were plenty...and her knowledge of wines was impeccable. She obviously took pride in her job. Overall a wonderful meal, great atmosphere and excellent service.

Unusual approach where the restaurant decided what dishes they will serve you with limited choice. Two couples had 2 different set menus. Service was very personal without being obtrusive.

We treated ourselves to the chefs table Tueday night meal. Food was outstanding and service excellent. What can we say ! If you love good food and enjoy experimenting with different flavours you will love Sidart. Quality experience not to be missed!

We had a large group that went along for the Tuesday test kitchen. Amazing food artfully presented and incredible value. The setting is gorgeous with great views over Auckland City. Staff were professional, efficient & friendly. Did art is a must do restaurant if you are in Auckland.

I went here with my partner, and she loved it just as much as I did. The menu was given to us in an envelope, so we could see it if we wanted, but we kept it a secret, as that was the point. We had the seven course dining menu, amazing food and super accommodating for dislikes. My partner... More
