“AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I didn't actually go to this one myself, but I booked my parents in there for their wedding anniversary. I was really really impressed with the level of service both I and my parents received. My parents came back raving. They were waited on hand and foot. The food was apparently amazing, and the venue itself is incredible. They say to go see the bathrooms! haha. They were also gifted with a surprise platter of strawberries and chocolate, the strawberries had been "painted" with a chocolate tuxedo. Very pretty. On the expensive side, but worth every penny. I will be going in too at some point!!

“Great food, fun atmosphere, third visit on the horizon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Have had two good meals here, and tonight's was great. I like the theme (1930's Prohibition Era, which accounts for its earlier name of 'Prohibition').
Great meat dishes, wonderful service. I do disagree with the concept of matching whiskey with food, as whiskey destroys the palate, but to each his own. And it's a pricey place, but worth it for a special occasion.

“Yum.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Amazing restaurant in Ponsonby....
A bit off putting entrance into the restaurant.... behind the heavy door is a themed Victorian/wild West/1920s restaurant...
The staff were very friendly and helpful... the menu had a wide range of choice...
I had the duck which was amazing...
The desert was amazing and plentiful.
Everyone in the group had an amazing meal.
The price was on the high side but worth every dollar...

“3 Generations Enjoy Low Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Thank you so much for making our celebratory Low Tea at Nostalgia such a wonderful experience. I had telephoned to make a reservation for us to enjoy a birthday celebration with 3 generations of our family and from the booking of the reservation to the actual day, it was a pleasant experience. The food was amazing and plentiful and the staff were charming and went above and beyond. At the end of the afternoon they surprised us with a birthday platter full of beautiful chocolate treats and it really made my daughters birthday. Thank you so much for a day to remember.
