Awarded TWO HATS Good Food Awards 2013, 2014, 2015 and Supreme Winner Restaurant of the Year NZ 2009. Nearly 20 years after Steve Logan founded the restaurant, Logan Brown is still showing newcomers how to do fine dining. The neo-classical interior remains as plush as ever, drawing diners who wouldn't normally brave the upper reaches of Cuba St, while competent, confident service encourages adventurous choices from the wine list. The kitchen, headed by Shaun Clouston, continues to turn out innovative, but not gimmicky, food. There's a strong emphasis on local and seasonal flavours, with a nod to the huntin', shootin' and fishin' enjoyed by the restaurant's founders. Classic Kiwi flavours are embraced and showcased with a sense of humour. In brief: style, service and food you can bank on Said international guest judge, Ralph-Kyte Powell, "If I had to select an international flagship for New Zealand cuisine. Logan Brown would be hard to go past"

Bistro perfection!

Friends and I went to the 5.30 bistro sitting on a Friday. Perfect...it was perfect :-D Great staff, great food and excellent value. ($45 per person , drinks extra) I can't wait to go back and try the more adventurous menus. Definitely a place to go for that special occasion.

We were excited about our visit to Logan Brown and the food didn't disappoint. I had seared hare to start and venison, both were incredible. The reason I cannot award a maximum 5 is because we had to wait a very long time between starter and main (over an hour!). To be honest I think they forgot us, as it... More

I loved the ambiance of this restaurant, the unhurried dining experience and the fantastic customer service. The layout of the restaurant provides intimate dining spaces which is so relaxing. The food was interesting and beautifully cooked. We went through a 5 course menu and loved it all. Can't wait to go back!

I took my Mum here for her 65th birthday. We had a fantastic dining experience. Go on line and check their menu out. There are a number of options, and all of them would delight your taste buds. The staff are wonderful, the ambience perfect, and the food.....wow!

We choose a early, light meal. The bistro menu for $45.00 pp was perfect with a glass of wine. Lamb and fish for the entree were perfect. Amy was a excellent, personable waitress. The setting is elegant with good jazz music in the background. Would highly recommend this restaurant when you visit Wellington.

We chose the Saturday night five course degustation dinner, and ordering online allowed us to make a special request about dessert... which they willingly obliged us with. The food *is* wonderful. Beautifully presented, tender where it should be, crispy where it should be, and mysteriously defying out taste buds sometimes, to identify an ingredient or two! The service was exceptionally...

I went here again the other day, and as always I found the staff friendly, relaxed and professional. The food superb (I had the chefs tasting menu), and the price for what you get very reasonable. Ambiance A+++. The wine list was straight forward and my selections were winners. Some good beers on the menu, the list could have been... More
