Went to 1024 for lunch today. I have been before but today the food was exceptional, service great, attitude of staff could not be better even down to the young lady topping up the water glasses.

Its now two years since 1024 opened, and the food just gets better and better. Chef is very passionate about the dining experience he is offering. And it shows.

Thanks for your efforts.

We've driven past 1024 hundreds of times, and have often said 'we must go there one day'. That day was today - and what an experience!
The food was hands down the best I have ever eaten in Hawkes Bay - creative, beautifully presented, with only the freshest ingredients. Each course had its own little dash of 'wow' factor - from the yoghurt caviar sprinkled over our melt in the mouth scallops, to the incredible brussell sprout flavoured garnish on the sweetbreads (much better than it sounds....had me wondering how you'd even make such a thing), and the liberal use of vietnamese mint in my spring rolls.
Desert was also a triumph - delicate marshmallow ravioli with a rich chocolate filling. Incredible!
The young team of waiters were friendly, nicely informal and very welcoming, and the courtyard seating on a hot Hawkes Bay day was most welcome.
Well done 1024 - after a string of disappointing dining experiences since moving back to Hawkes Bay, I've found a new favourite place.
PS - 1 shared entree, 2 mains, large glass of wine, 2 deserts, 2 coffees - not much over $100. Bargain!

We enjoyed everything about this restaurant.
The service and atmosphere, and especially time with family was great.
The desserts are just wonderful.
Thanks everyone.

Country dining in New Zealand. A little drive for us, but as stated earlier, well worth the effort. Our hats off to Kent and staff for making our mum in laws birthday lunch something extra special.

Taking it to a new level in this part of the world is TEN TWENTY FOUR. BEST wine list we've seen, bar none. And well priced. EXCELLENT value to quality ratio. Good vintages from great producers, both local and round New Zealand. We plumped for a Martinborough Pinot Noir as it dovetailed nicely with the range of foods our threesome ordered.

All dishes were exceptional in quality and presentation. Quantity was generous. Service friendly and attentive. Being a warm afternoon, staff was kind enough to place the mobile umbrellas nearby for some shade.

This experience raises the bar for fine dining in Hastings / Napier. Dining al fresco in the lovely courtyard was a joy.

Our highest recommendations and looking forward to a quick return.
