We have been to all of Aucklands fine dining restaurants. This is the best. Two other places have comparable food but the food here really is exceptional. Match that with the excellent customer service and you can't go past SidArt.

It's hard to fault a place with such great food, an awesome wine match and attentive service. It would be up there for me on the world stage. We went for a family birthday degustation with people with dietary needs and they made it work....More

Visiting Sidart is like being at a Broadway stage show with a touch of Disney magic. This is not just a scoff and run kind of place - we were there 4 hours. Relax and enjoy each gorgeous plate of magical deliciousness - food is...More

I've been to many top restaurants and I just say this is definitely of a 2 Michelin star standard, for those who follow such ratings. The food was innovative, with unique flavors infused by the chef, such as Asian flavors and spices. Great value for...More
