I have often driven past this restaurant and thought that the building exterior doesn't really match the name. I read the great reviews and decided we should try it out. Four of us had a very pleasant evening here. There was a lovely fire burning when we arrived and we enjoyed a quiet drink before being seated. The food was... More

Every time I go to this place, I know the service and food is going to be top notch. The only thing that frustrates me about 148 is the fact I don't go there more to support the team. Keep up the good work!

Exquisite food and top wine always. You'd expect to pay top dollar however surprisingly enough their prices are extremely reasonable. The decor is lush and welcoming. Attention to detail in everything they do making every visit wish you'd remembered to visit more often.

We've never been disappointed at this restaurant and again had a lovely meal with excellent service. I had the hoisin chicken for an entree which was a big entree with crispy wonton wrappers , hoisin chicken, cherry Tomatoes and micro herbs. Would highly recommend it this especially if you're hungry. I had the Potk fillet for a main and ordered... More

Food was impeccable. Definitely fine dining. Exquisite food. Portions are not the biggest so I did have an entree, main and desert which is not really normal for me but each dish was highest quality. On the expensive side but justifies the price. Service is attentive without being overbearing

Have been meaning to get back here for ages and just never got around to it. Finally booked and went for a meal. Great service and so impressed with the young lady who can remember everything and never writes it down. Even when taking orders from a table with 10 or so people at it. Food arrived, the Chowder was... More

We enjoyed a mid week dinner of delicious seafood chowder, scallops, blue eye cod with crayfish risotto & pork belly accompanied by a NZ Chardonnay. Friendly staff.
