Gorgeous Food - Awesome Views

Gorgeous menu on a Tuesday Night - every dish is so well presented - the flavours just work together beautifully. I love the envelope that is presented - you can choose to peak at your menu - or just trust the chef - which we did and we were not disappointed. Service is immaculate, great... read more

This is just another icing on the cake for SidArt. My wife & I went for a Test Kitchen on Tuesday. It's an 8-course test menu. The last course with brown sugar (pudding), etc., was really "Save The Best For Last." On my mind I constantly compared SidArt with French Cafe, The Grove, et al. For food, SidArt could go... More

I have eaten all over the world, and my experience at SidArt has to be one of the best, from the outstanding food, to the depth of knowledge about wine to attention to detail. Will definitely go back again. Thanks Amanda and Sarah for your professional service.

Fantastic!!!! What can we say, we have eaten at some of the worlds best resteraunts and SidArt is certainly up there with the best. The carrot dish was one of my favourite. The setting is a small resteraunt but very well decorated, it also has a amazing view over Auckland. If you are in Auckland or just visiting make sure... More

then you are doing great. This applies to SidArt. We went in July or August 2014, after reading some reviews and thought we'd try. We were late but it was not a problem at all. SidArt were doing degustation menus only, so we went for the shortened version. My partner is not a fan of seafood or raw food, so... More

Took our son out for a farewell dinner and it met all our expectations. The food was amazing, the service attentive, if a bit rushed at times, and the wine matches well chosen The 2 dinner options for the evening were either the 5 course or the 9 course degustation menu. We chose the 5 course option and came away... More

First off, the food is sensational. Not large portions but very tasty and worthy of slow eating. The Waygu beef was outstanding and the duck leg exquisite. The dessert was, as always, first class. What was not so good for me was the wine matching. Far be it from me to complain but the amounts were small compared to our... More
