A date night dinner before a concert, friendly service, lovely food, was a little more expensive than we expected, but we ordered to our budget and was very happy with our choices, my husband had cheek of beef, I had a burger. Dessert was shared, a disassembled apple crumble, bit too arty for my liking, but we were advised when... More

Ned and Henry Shiraz - a rare find in Christchurch and as lovely as I remembered; risotto cooked beautifully, service and venue warm on a cold winter's night and not too noisy. A treat! Prices were good too

Long time since been here to eat but won't be going back. Service was great but the food disappointing. I had a small leg of duck, no sauce, on top of a pile of undercooked potatoes. The vegetables were little more than 4 petite cubes of beetroot. My partner had the lamb which was OK but not a generous serving.... More

My partner and I went to Elevate for Valentines Day and wow, it has gone down-hill since we last went just over a year ago. The food was ok but we could not believe the lack of service. After finishing one drink and part way through our meal, we asked for the drinks menu again, which we received. That was... More

I popped in for lunch on Waitangi day when everywhere else seemed closed. A good cup off coffee and divine squid. Squid can be so easily overcooked. It came with a chilli lime sauce. Well balanced lunch.

I enjoy meeting friends here, especially on Friday evenings when it is all buzzing. Bar is well stocked with tap beer and regular featured New Zealand wines. Service is brisk and, in balmy weather, outdoor seating is a treat. A good choice of wedges and other nibbles to accompany drinks. Have dined in evening on three or four occasions. Once... More

Have had several enjoyable meals here. The food has always been tastey and the service as well. We had the T-bone steak and chicken pasta dishes, and both were very good. A nice atmosphere and average prices.

We have eaten here a few times now with varying results. It's a pub trying to be a restaurant with high restaurant prices but food and atmosphere that falls short . Noise is an issue and while the staff try there is just something not quite right with the food atmosphere mix. Drop the prices a bit improve the food... More

My wife and I visited Elevate on a Monday night, it was not suprisingly pretty quiet. We werent expecting anything great, but were both pleasantly surprised by the food, I had the fish special, which was well cooked and very tasty, my wife had the chicken, which she also enjoyed. As it was quiet service was also good, speedy and... More
