Tucked away upstairs in an old arcade, as soon as we entered the restaurant we were made welcome and had superb service throughout our meal. We all had a 5 (I think) course degustation and thoroughly enjoyed the numerous taste sensations. I will happily return.

This was an experience I'll remember forever. We were greeted by a friendly waitress who made us feel comfortable straight away. She gave us options on the degustation menu's so we were able to sample everything between us. She also explained all the courses as they were delivered. The tastes and flavours were incredible and because it was a birthday... More

It's been a year since my last visit and the place is still as perfect as before. We chose the 9 course degustation with wine matching and all were spot on. The meal took 3.5 hours end to end which was the right pace to get through the food without feeling over-full. The portion sizes were perfect, not too tiny,... More

My wife and I were introduced to this restaurant by local Aucklanders, and were delighted and seriously impressed by the faultless presentation and execution of a superb menu which continued to impress & excel dish after dish. We've eaten at a number of Michelin starred restaurants internationally and Sidart is exemplary and equals or surpasses most, notwithstanding the quirky location... More

We headed here to mark the 2nd anniversary since we settled in Auckland and we were quite disappointed. We chose the 5 course option and were impressed that we could opt to go through all the options available between the two of us. The food was well plated and styled - really exquisite but the taste did not quite cut... More

Being a Melbournian, there are so many great culinary experiences back home. However, SidArt is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. We were greeted by an amazing and professional team who were very knowledgeable and welcoming. The decor, view, lighting and music were all perfect and sets the mood for a great environment.

Four of us had the 5 course wine matching degustation menu. The food was amazing and the nice touches were the extras,two amuse bouches at the start of the menu plus the lovely bread rolls with smoked (yum) butter and the PRE dessert.. The first course of tuna was ok but the following courses of scallops, duck ,eye fillet and... More
