“Hidden jewel in Ponsonby”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Excellent dinner, the amuse-bouche (trevally tartare with baby watercress, cristallized with liquid nitrogen at the table) was surprising and everything else was brilliant. Special mention for the Roquefort cheesecake. The dining room gets stiffingly hot after a while, this is something that can definitely be improved.

I can't recall in Auckland such exquisite and imaginative presentation. Liquid nitrogen on shredded lettuce? Bring it on. Congratulations Sidart!

“I wanted to stay the night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

I love this place, the food is amazing and the staff have the right attitude to entertain your requirements. Not cheap so don't go there if budget is your concern. Leave room for desert, well worth it.

“Excellent - an amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

There is nothing quite like Sidart in Auckland. It is both a gastronomical experience and a delicious orgy of food delights. The service is good - not quite as impeccable as the French Cafe - and the view / setting is intimate. If you want to propose, celebrate or impress - this is the place to do it.
We had the ten course meal and I would thoroughly recommend it to all! I can't wait to go back!
