I just love The Woodbox and my last visit was no exception. The food is always fantastic, the staff provide excellent discreet service and the ambience of the place means it's not hard to spend a few hours enjoying a fine meal with good company

Best dinner out in a long time! i took my parents here and we all had a great time, fantastic food, amazing wine and a great atmosphere! We were very impressed by the menu, and thankfully there wasnt a massive selection as we had a hard enough time deciding as it was. We all had 3 courses and each one was better than the last. My dad could not stop talking about the mussles he had for entree, and the mystrey creek wine i had is now one i am trying to track down :-) Everyone was friendly, polite and next time i am in the waikato i am going back again :-)

Very nice atmosphere and setting overlooking the river. Decor inside modern with separate eating areas. Food well presented and offered variety, but it needed more flavour or sauces.

The Woodbox has been consistently good over four years of visiting once every few months. Generally good service (not always common in NZ restaurants), a menu with interesting combinations we always find hard to choose from, and - aside from Palate in Hamilton - our favourite local place for celebratory meals, be in dinner a deux, or lunch with the children. Has an excellent kids' menu - they manage to take even the ham and cheese toasted sandwich to new heights!

This is a very nice restaurant and very nice food, just no x factor.
