We had breakfast at Gotham – a good range of menu and cabinet items, newspapers and magazines. The friendly service was a particular highlight. The only low-point was the expensive coffee – $4 for a long black, when places like Prefab have set the benchmark for Wellington at $2.50, was very steep. Will return for the food and the service, but may forego the coffee next time.

We recently purchased one of the online deals for Gotham where we received a 2-course meal for 2. We decided to go on a Friday when they have 2 for 1 drinks, but was told that the drinks special doesn't apply to our voucher. This doesn't make sense, we could have just had drinks before hand and then have dinner. It's the same thing, so not a good start to the evening.

Our waiter was friendly and the service was reasonably quick. The entrees was nothing to brag about, the calamari was a bit chewy but the sauce made up for it (it really shouldn't though)

For mains, we had the rump steak with chips and coleslaw. The steak was cooked medium-rare as requested but was quite chewy and the chips weren't that great.

Not the best experience. We'll be back but only for coffee.

I go here quite often. It is great to take anyone to, whether it's for coffee, cake, lunch, brunch or a beer. The food is always really nice. It is well presented and you get good value for money. The staff are friendly too.

I suppose it is Gotham but this is taking it a bit far, average coffee and dry cake inside was dark & gloomy, lots of far better places around town.
