This meal was a taste sensation from start to finish. My taste buds have never experienced anything like it. Simply the best meal I have ever had at a restaurant. The service was amazing. Gorgeous atmosphere and amazing staff. The whole night was magical.

What a wonderful night. After a few disappointing experiences in the past with fine dining both my partner and I were on the fence, but we went with an open mind. And wow, what an evening. From the moment you walk through the door, you feel completely welcomed as if you were walking into your friend’s home. The waiter was... More

As a small group of 3 we visited Merediths for their Friday 4 course degustation menu with a glass of Tattinger. The glass turned into a couple and the day went from good to great. The staff were very attentive and described well each inventive course. We were surprised at the mixes of ingredients that wouldn't normally seem to make... More

This was a meal that still has me thinking about the incredible technique and flavour combinations a week later. We went on a Friday night for the 8 course degustation menu, I have added the menu (July 2016) Taro, crab, coconut & curry Kingfish, oyster cream, pickle carrots & poppy seeds Scampi, pumpkin, tarragon, tapioca & sunflower King salmon, apple...

Very much enjoyed a long lunch at Merediths beginning with a lovely glass of champagne and absolutely perfect ceviche dish. Our initial welcome could have been warmer but was much made up for with outstanding service in the restaurant. A lovely calming environment with inventive, aesthetically beautiful and fulfilling food. Intend to return for more!

Our lovely French waiter (Friday 15 July) made everything perfect, service, wine & food was fantastic. Parking is impossible so we each spent some time trying to find a nearby park longer than 60mins, therefore we arrived a bit flustered from running around in the wind and rain only to have a blonde woman with a face like thunder bark...

After hyping the Merediths experience to my partner, we finally attended for a weeknight sitting. I had been before, she had not. It is a fine dining restaurant, so you go in with an expectation of ambience, friendly and attentive staff. All in check there. However the food was not the experience I had hoped. Sure, plates are good looking... More

We have been lucky enough to visit Meredith's twice in the last four months, once on a Friday for the 8 course meal and once on a Saturday for the 9 course. Both occasions this was more than an evening out . The decor is cool and calming, the service exceptional and the food an experience not to be missed!... More

I wanted to treat my wife and daughter to a five course degustation at one of Auckland's finest restaurants. Merediths didn't disappoint. The food was sublime, the ambience perfect, the service attentive but not intrusive. You won't be disappointed. Well - perhaps you might be disappointed if: - you want traditional cuisine. Merediths will surprise you with its innovation -... More

It's my first time at Merediths. Its entrance is not eye-catching like other fine-dining restaurants. It serves tasting menus of 5-, 8- or 9-course, depending on the day. On a Saturday we had a 9-course dinner. Starting from the amuse-bouche - a trio of beautiful canapé, inclusive of deep-fried chicken skin (not oily at all), sort of egg yolk crumbs... More
