What day is it? Is it Tuesday? Then you need to get to Sidart for their test menu. $80 for 8 groundbreaking cutting edge courses in degustation. Best value for foodies, any Tuesday of the year. We were lucky enough to get there for their 10th anniversary, with the dishes of this (multi award winning!) restaurant featuring in an unexpected... More

Four of us dined on the 9 course but there are actually 4-5 amuse bouche so its quite a feast. Some things are literally a mouthful and others much more so overall we were to put it bluntly...pretty full! The restaurant is located in the back of a plaza and upstairs...getting there is not exactly as swish as the inside.... More

A $50 5 course degustation menu for Friday lunch was an offer too good for us to turn down, especially as a birthday treat. Parking is not thrilling but the place, albeit deep in an arcade, is easy to find. The welcome was good and the environment certainly upmarket and to my liking. There is even a superb view. The...

If Anyone wants a truly great degustation adventure, this is your mark. Tried all the others and this is the best in Auckland. Service felt a little obsequious .

I was lucky enough to eat here during their (ten year?) anniversary which highlighted their favourite dishes during this period. The food was impeccably good as was the service. Having just reviewed their website for this review, I can advise that Amanda Rogers (Restaurant Manager and Somelier) was a delight. Her knowledge of wine and friendliness are in themselves assets...

The restaurant really is gorgeous and had the best service I've ever experienced in NZ and outside, the waitress with the glasses was lovely and very attentive. We were just very unlucky to be there on a night with a 11-13 person VERY LOUD group dining at the same time. They were very rude and kept screaming over each other,... More

My husband and I dined at SidArt for the first time on Saturday and absolutely loved it, it was perhaps the best meal we have ever had. Their 5th Birthday Degustation menu and wine matches were delightful and illuminating. Their pairings were bold and sometimes unexpected, but were unwaveringly interesting. The portion sizes were generous and we found the meals... More

My husband and I visited SidArt on a busy Saturday night. We were excited based upon TA reviews and the write up in Metro magazine but after a less than impressive visit earlier this year to another highly rated Auckland restaurant, we were prepared to be underwhelmed. I'm happy to say that SidArt did not disappoint. We chose the 9... More
