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"

“Delicious Degustation”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Logan-Brown were kind enough to give me a different degustation menu because I don't eat seafood.

Lovely food, friendly service and a beautiful interior in a gorgeous former bank building.

“I expected more for the small fortune”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

The food was excellent, no doubt about that, lovely interior and decent service, but after an entree, main and dessert I left still a tad hungry which just left me regretting paying a days wages for the experience.

We are very sorry you did not think you got value for money when dining with us.
We certainly aim to farewell all our guests with a feeling of satisfaction for the warmth and generosity of the experience.
True some dishes are lighter and more elegant and others are more robust and richer so it is possible you chose 3 dishes on the lighter side.

“Gracious interior and accomplished food”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Everything about this restaurant is great, from the varied menu which appears to change very often, to the efficient and friendly staff. We went here twice, and experienced both the bistro menu and a la carte menu. Both were very good. The bistro menu gets you in and out quicker. Truly one of the best restaurants in NZ.

Thanks for the great praise and acknowledging the menu options.
The bistro menu is perfect for diners in a hurry or wanting to eat light and at $49.50 for 3 courses a great price.
The a la carte menu features the very best NZ ingredients available and special for that.
No matter what menu a guest chooses all get treated like kings and queens in a beautiful historical dining space!!

“Lovely Setting, Professionally Executed”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Interesting menu with novel touches, but not just to be different or for novelty sake. Servers are well trained and knowledgeable. Excellent, would definitely go back even if it entailed a side journey; truly a destination restaurant in its own right.

“Good food, good service but overpiced”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Had a nice meal with our son who now lives in Wellington. Entrees were a bit small and fussy but main courses ok. Service was prompt and friendly. Given the high prices I would not hurry back
