A good dining experience.

The wine list is extensive and there is a wide range for all tastes.

The menu has many gluten free options and the 6 attendees all enjoyed their meals - well worth a visit

I was expecting a great meal and while the service was the food really was not. We had the 'special' lamb - unfortunately it really was not - special that it. I found the food really just what I could do at home when from somewhere like this I expect Wow.

Wine selection was good although again nothing really special unless you really wanted to pay $$$.

A nice dining experience. The staff was very cordial but service was a little slow. My wife had the fish stew which was good. It had a lot of seafood but was a little bland. I had the sirloin steak which was good but not the best and required eating with the cooked tomato to really enjoy. The surprise of the evening was the broccoli and beets side. The broccoli was excellent and never have I had beets that were so delicious! An overall good experience for our first evening in New Zealand.

Came here for a meal w colleagues.
The wine list is impressive and the staff know their stuff, excellent recommendations on wine.
Food was great, really good quality. Not sure why some reviews complain about the prices, it is an upper end restaurant, with quality food on offer.
Was busy mid week with mix of business groups, and couples for dinner.
Excellent atmosphere, private but still had ambience.
Worth a visit if it's 'upper end' food and wine you are wanting.

I have never had a meal here so can't comment on the food. In terms of having a nice glass of wine I am confident you will not be disappointed here. Large wine selection from around the world with some real nice drops here and there. I enjoy coming to this place, sit down, enjoy the service of staff who knows their wine and just chill out with friends.
