Great service, great location...limited menu

Looking for a place that satisfies all types of diners is difficult, and to be fair, if you have fussy eaters, this is not the place for you.

The food was amazing I had the salmon with squid ink and it was amazing! The service was fabulous to say the least as well as the views! Would be back for sure, and would recommend this great place.

We went here for my wife's work get together just before Christmas. It was the first time I had ever been here and also most likely the last. For an apparently top notch restaurant it left a lot to be desired. First issue everybody's mains came out cold. Second issue I never got a main until I complained and then... More

Overall our experience was perfect. The service was prompt and efficient. The food was fresh, full of flavour and the meat tender.We enjoyed the wine selection too. We could not fault this top Wellington restaurant and look forward to returning again.

A simple formula of good food, good location and honest service really made an excellent evening. I would steongly recommend the Groper on the menu which was served with a really interesting cabbage salad with a very tasty aioli and a wonderful light potato cake. We finished with desert! One choice of rhubarb and mango and the other a cheesecake.... More

Dinner with colleagues. Had the duck. While the meat was superb, the other aspects of the meal failed to wow. The setting is good and the wait staff attentive.

Our family went to a number of better restaurants in town during our stay, but Dockside was definitely the most memorable that we would have gone again if there weren't so many restaurants in Wellington to choose from. We had the chargrilled scotch fillet, crispy skin salmon and crumbed lamb cutlets. All of them taste excellent, but the fillet stood... More

We had a private group booking upstairs, I found the food to be excellent and the service fine. The entree was almost the same size as the main, which I thought was strange, but I was full by the end of the meal. Good selection of wine and beer.
