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"

The reviews are right - this restaurant does not disappoint! Beautifully designed and a lovely atmosphere. Staff were attentive and the food faultless. If you have the opportunity definitely visit Logan-Brown.

I have eaten in the best restaurants round the world and Logan Brown is up there with the best of the best. Expensive yes, but you get what you pay for. Brilliant

Standing with unique 'topographical prominence' along Cuba Street & Vivian Street reminded us of an office building, a legal practice, or a private banking outlet. Instead it is a poseur restaurant purportedly defining 'fine dining' in a town with an abundance of outlets.
It is conservative, smallish with ecclesiastical overtones offering overpriced decent food with a more value for money concession in the bistro menu. Fine waiting, a lot of foot traffic by personell and ancillaries but nothing to write home about if we bring along european sprightly attitudes. It probably defines a snobbish antipodal gesture. The a la carte selection has unequal weights and pertains to all or none. The wine list is not fabulous.

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.

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.
