It is a fine dining restaurant but a small place and tight seating space although It does not affecting nice and well presented dishes. We were there Tuesday night for a tasting menu $80 it is good value for a Auckland fine dining restaurant. I am not sure the head chef is working that day because all the dishes were... More

This is by far the best degustation I've been to. When you head to Sidart for the first time the entrance may not look like much, but as soon as you walk inside the restaurant you can tell it's an intimate and cosy setting. The service was excellent and the food was absolutely amazing. Every time the food arrived at... More

Always a special treat to come to SidArt. The food is absolutely amazing! Cannot fault it ever. Love that the restaurant is not too big, so dining feels intimate. Can also recommend the Tuesday night special when new menus are being trialled. Hard to get in, so you will need to book ahead.

This was an evening of exquisite food and art - we had the degustation with wine match and every course came surprise and simply gorgeous food . It was great not to feel rushed and to be able to enjoy taking your time over the evening . Would thoroughly recommend .

Great food, small and intimate restaurant. Wine paring rounded the degustation menu off perfectly. Felt the location of the restaurant did not do it justice tho. Was a great evening out no less?

The Tuesday test kitchen is superb. Every single course was impeccable, there was a smoky theme that ran through all the dishes. Each dish was explained in detail by the waiter and if you didn't choose the wine match you could still get great recommendations as the courses progressed. Absolute must do, the chef is a magician and he is... More

Overall, this remains a must on the top-end decadent-degustation-list in Auckland. Food - amazingly innovative, detailed and fantastically presented. I guess this is the core element of why one goes to Sidart, and it matched up to my expectations. Staff - knowledgeable and welcoming staff, without being overbearing. They seemed a little short handed - I could see our waitress... More
