“great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I have tried so many restaurants around Tauranga and Ihave to say I keep going back to the Cobb and Co I have never ever been dissapointed in the quality of their food. Only one thing Id like to say no vegetarian options really besides pasta and it is an area that needs to be looked at, because when it comes to group bookings there are always vegetarians.Otherwise Great dining experience.

“Friendly vibe, great location, poor cut of meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The entree and my meal was lovely - was keen to give a very good review.. The Coconut chicken was a highlight. However, My partner ordered the special of the night = Big Boy - a 500g steak, this was very disappointing as it was clearly a really poor cut of meat - only really made up for fatty bits. Although my experience was very good the rating is average as when you consider what great produce is on offer in NZ the beef should have been much better. We should have seen that the restaurant was only trying to move poor quality meat, rather than provide an excellent deal with this special.
Service was friendly but after we asked for the drinks menu the waiter never returned to take our drinks order. Oh well, at least money was saved here on our part

Sue G, Owner at Cobb and Co, responded to this review, March 12, 2013
VERY sorry to hear the steak was not up to par: we buy top of the range Angus Pure precut steaks from an Auckland specialist steak company and we pay a considerable premium for it. All our steaks are Angus Pure Beef (as depicted by the logo on the menu) and buying them pre-cut is another way of ensuring top quality (since then there is no using up of sub-standard ends, or bargain meat). Occasionally a steak will get through the suppliers quality checks and the chefs will pull it aside to return it. So if a substandard steak made it on to your plate, I am sincerely sorry. Please could you tell me what date you dined with us and where you sat, so I can follow up with the meat supplier and the waiter.
