“Top quality, formal style dining”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Had a really nice lunch there. The Seafood chowder was one of the best we've ever had. Quite formal though so not really a place to have a casual lunch and not cheap but but not outrageous. Service was Ok although went a little bit awol at times. Lovely location. One of the better places to eat in Wellington.

Thank you for your helpful comments. So glad you enjoyed the food; our seafood chowder has been a staple on our menu for many a year, and for good reason too we think! We do uphold a fairly formal setting and service style, but do feel we accommodate dining experiences for every kind of occasion. Sorry to hear your service wasn’t consistent. We have taken these comments on board and are working on improving and maintaining the high service standards we strive to offer. We hope to welcome you on another occasion and show you great service, to make yours a 5 star experience.

Kind regards,

Shed 5 Management Team

“Great view”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We had a good time - the staff was good. Had the fish with chorizo which was good. The dessert with pineapples is light and different.

Glad to hear you had a pleasant evening. Our fish on offer is sourced and filleted daily on site, by our dedicated fishmonger Richard Waru; it really is a fresh as possible! We hope to welcome you another time.

“Beautiful Ambience”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

My husband Ross & I enjoyed our 9th wedding anniversary here at Shed 5. The food was excellent, the wait staff are friendly & very efficient. A pleasant surprise was the presentation of truffles set in a heart shape on a plate each with 'Happy Anniversary' written in chocolate....

“Clearly classy”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We were taken here by family as we were visiting Wellington. Expensive though well presented, good atmosphere though a little impersonal and slightly lacking in something undefined. I hope they enjoyed it as they clearly had been waiting for the right moment to visit and needed it to be special.

Reviewed April 2, 2014

A lovely restaurant with friendly knowledgable staff, allowed you to enjoy your evening without constant interruptions asking us if all was well. I definitely would recommend for an adult night out.
