Scotch fillet cooked medium rare perfectly with fries and a beef glaze. Can't fault their steaks. Shitake and prawn risotto once again very tasty. Highly recommended.

My friends and I decided it was time for a girls night out. We went to Smith & McKenzie at the recommendation of one of the other girls. It was very busy as it usually is but the service was still amazing. All of our meals were lovely and the atmosphere was great. We would definetely go again.

I ordered a steak which was expensive, (which I didn't mind) however I was given a choice of 1side order, I would have thought a meal would at least come with a salad and possibly potatoes without having to pay extra.

Loved the atmosphere and rustic feel of the place. The food was amazing. Literally just amazing. Price wise they were acceptable for a higher end steakhouse Staff could be a little more aware of the needs of the diners but they were very busy when we arrived. Great place and has options for functions also! Recommended

I have been on several occasions and twice int he last month. On every occasion the food has been spot on. There are always plenty of staff on hand. I had the Rump Steak, wife had Eye Fillet, adult daughter had pasta and adult sons had spare ribs, burgers, fish & chips. All very satisfied.

Very busy evening at Smith & McKenzie. Felt the time between arriving & taking orders was quite long. Loved the fresh hot bread & garlic butter. For a change a fish meal. Great, but Chinese noodle base a little too sour. It was great that we could take our deserts home. Really like that. (9 year old grandchild, enjoyed dinner... More

This was our first visit to Smith & McKenzie, we’d heard good things. We went on a Monday night, it was very busy and we were seated by a window. The menu is based around different cuts of NZ steak (if you don’t like steak then this is not the place for you). There is also an extensive drinks list.... More

Enjoyable lunch for a table of four for a special birthday. It is a help yourself to a table and menu restaurant which is not obvious upon entering for the first time. Good time to go early on in the week as there were not too many people dining. Most of us had the Chicken Waldorf salad which was very... More
