“Excellent Dining Experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Service throughout our dinner was personable and professional, from the greeting at the door to the attentive, but not obtrusive table service with a good balance of formality and friendliness.
The ambience of this restaurant is appealing; subdued lighting, modern décor and background music of a style and volume that does not impact upon conversation. One has the choice of the main dining area which is busy and buzzy with larger groups or a quieter area for more intimate dining. A private dining room for groups up to 10 people is also available and most attractive.
Perusal of the menu and wine list is by way of ipads, which is very effective, with appealing illustrations and descriptions of the dishes.
The structure of the menu was very welcomed by one of us with limiting dietary requirements. In addition to a list of mains, there are items from the grill, including tuna, venison, chicken, vegetarian and various steaks by type and weight. One then selects accompaniments from a number of side dishes and sauces to customise the dish.
Dishes are specified as to whether they are gluten-free, dairy-free etc, which is also very helpful.
Despite our eating out regularly, this is one of the few times ordering has not been somewhat difficult in terms of dietary requirements, so thank you for providing this depth of information.
The presentation and quality of our dishes was excellent, with meats cooked exactly as ordered.
All in all, faultless delivery and we will definitely return. Many thanks.

“OMG - superb”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Group of 12 went to celebrate a birthday. From beginning to end the meal was fantastic, with eveyone in the group thorougly enjoying all courses of their email. The staff were friendly and relaxed. The wine list is extensive. The use of an ipod to wine choices was innovative. There was a lovely atmosphere and cosy and warm on a cold winters nigth. I'll be back!!

“Always good.”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

I have been back here many times. Good personal service with a sense of humour yet not too free. Great wines. Digital I-pad menu which is the single best informed way to construct your meal. Great food. The ambiance is just right. Formal but relaxed. I eat our a lot at all price levels all over Auckland , the country and international and am critical . I take friends , family and business contacts there and always left super happy and content.

“Pretty jolly good”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We arrived back from Fiji and had a reservation, however we were somewhat late and phoned ahead to advise them of our late arrival, would they hold our reservation, yes they did and it was no trouble. Great. The ambiance is excellent, service is professional, wine list very good, food superb, I am vegetarian and had a delicious meal made up from the side dishes, all tasty. There is a vegetarian choice on the menu, I just did not feel like whatever it was. Our dining was relaxed and satisfying. A great restaurant actually.

“The Perfect Place”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We booked ahead for a family dinner to celebrate our son's 21st. We had the table right next to the fire. It was so nice on a cold wet Saturday night. The service, food & drinks we could not fault. The pictures showing the food on the iPad are actually smaller than what you receive on your plate - which was a bonus! Perfectly cooked food, service was very professional. 10 out of 10! Another bonus is you don't have to pay for parking & it's right outside the restaurant door.
