Description: Awarded TWO HATS Good Food Awards 2013, 2014, 2015 and Supreme Winner Restaurant of the Year NZ 2009. Nearly 20 years after Steve Logan founded the restaurant, Logan Brown is still showing newcomers how to do fine dining. The neo-classical interior remains as plush as ever, drawing diners who wouldn't normally brave the upper reaches of Cuba St, while competent, confident service encourages adventurous choices from the wine list. The kitchen, headed by Shaun Clouston, continues to turn out innovative, but not gimmicky, food. There's a strong emphasis on local and seasonal flavours, with a nod to the huntin', shootin' and fishin' enjoyed by the restaurant's founders. Classic Kiwi flavours are embraced and showcased with a sense of humour. In brief: style, service and food you can bank on Said international guest judge, Ralph-Kyte Powell, "If I had to select an international flagship for New Zealand cuisine. Logan Brown would be hard to go past"

“Logan Brown”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Not so up beat that you can feel really comfortable. We had a seat against a wall so felt more intimate. Staff well versed about the menu.

“Outstanding service”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Visiting Wellington, daughter treated me for 70th birthday. Food excellent. service was sooo good as when greand-daughter's burger arrived, she said it tasted funny and daughter noted that meat looked raw. Made complaint and meal was replaced, apology not only given by our waitress, but also by maitre de and then chef came out and apologised as well. To add to the bonus, the manager, when we went to pay the bill, only charged for the 3 adult meals - no charge for the child's meal at all, yet she had had a small entree and sweets.
Logan-Brown - you are the BEST!!

“Wellington Icon”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Logan Brown is an iconic restaurant in Wellington, with 5 star food, wine list and service. The standard never varies, although menus do. I have not noticed any discernible changes since the departure of Al Brown to the North, and continue to enjoy the restaurant. We often take staff there for a nice lunch, if we have had a good month, and fortunately we seem to have plenty of those. This is one of my favourite restaurants in the whole world and, in my view , is up there with some of the better restaurants in the world.

“One of Wellington's best kept secrets”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We went to Logan Brown's for a Christmas lunch. We had the bistro menu with only 2 choices for each course. The bistro menu at Logan Brown is excellent value for money. The food is brilliant, the service superb and it is a wonderful dining atmosphere where you can have a proper conversation with your companions.
