Just to say despite other reviews we had a superb evening at Shed 5. Although they were fully booked we were asked if we would like to wait for a table. We were so pleased we did as the food was very good (fish) and the atmosphere buzzing. A good night out in Wellington in a great location.

This restuarnat had a buzz about it on a Saturday evening in March. The service was excellent , we enjoyed 'posh' fish and chips and a delightful taste plate of desserts.

Wow - talk about a train wreck waiting to happen - no it was worse than that, it had crashed already. Honestly, this place was a disaster zone. Don't know if it was just due to our timing but that shouldn't be an excuse for such bad service or terrible food. We were in Wellington for a concert and wanted an easy bite to eat and a drink beforehand. Shed 5 - owned by Simon Gault, it would have to be good wouldn't it......... let's just say if these guys were on my food show they'd be out. Bar service was appaulling. Waited, waited, waited - so bad the other patrons arriving around us were all looking at each other going "what is going on here". Bar menu tries to hard and in the end just doesn't deliver. Ordered caeser salad and it would be the worst caeser salad we've ever had. Most definitely will not be going back.

Kind of disappointed in what we expected to be a good place to dine (and you would expect that for the prices). ordered beef and chicken, both lacking flavor and beef not cooked well.
possibly stick to seafood options as that seems to be their specialty.

waiter service was slow, waited a considerable amount of time to be asked if we would like a drink ect. and then seemed to be rushed out even thought it was not busy.

We went to Shed 5 for dinner after our quiet wedding. The food was delicious, staff very nice, plus location is excellent. Unfortunately we could not dine outside, since only bar menu is available there.
