Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had heard good things about Sidart, and put it on my list as a must do when in Auckland. The service was outstanding, nothing too much trouble, including altering dishes to suit dietary requirements. The food was wonderful, the Waygu probably the best beef...I have ever had! The views were also stunning, if you get a chance to go, you will not be disappointed!More

We went to Sidart to celebrate a special birthday, with a special dinner. We opted for the 6 course tasting menu, which was both very well presented and of course very tasty. For our group, the six courses was enough to fill us up, but...we did have the option of adding in a bit more if it was required. The team at Sidart were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Our first choice of red wine was not available on the night, however our wine we settled on was excellent. This is a top end dining experience, which I rate as good as any top end dinner we have had overseas.More

One of best meals I have ever enjoyed. Delicious food, uniquely created and beautifully served. The service is delightful- cordial, friendly, and unpretentious. Chef Lesley Chandry is brilliant and manager Joe Costello is a superb host.

My wife & I had always wanted to visit Sidart based on its stellar reputation, and did so for our Wedding Anniversary dinner. We knew the cost would be above average for fine dining, but it was far from excessive, and worth every dollar for...the exceptional quality of the food & presentation. We chose to dine a la carte, but would be tempted to try the 6 or 10 course degustation menu next time, as we both had 4 delicious courses anyway. Every single bite was fabulous & delicate, and while it was all great, the poached fish curry entree was a delight, and the Aged Wagyu maybe the most stunning piece of meat I have ever tasted, I could so easily ordered another as it was sublime. This one superb dish will be reason enough for me to return again soon. The meal was perfectly accompanied by 3 excellent wines by the glass, each outstanding. A final word goes to our friendly & informative presenter of each dish, she was lovely.More

Food was fantastic, we tried the 18 (small) courses meal with wine pairing, the cheese selection was amazing too. Presentation of each course was great, fantastic service overall. Sadly, the main thing we remember from the evening now was seeing them beg for a tip...after with some pre-filled US-like percent of total price. This is NZ, this has absolutely nothing to do here.More

We had a seriously amazing experience at Sidart, enjoying the 10 course taster menu with non-alcoholic drink pairing that we were gifted. The food was out of this world, delicious and beautiful works of art. All the staff were incredibly attentive and friendly and we...were made to feel really special, especially as we came for a special occasion. We will definitely be coming back!!More

Dining at Sidart was incomparable, memorable beyond my expectations. I opted for the Tasting menu, a ten course tour de force of culinary inventiveness and creativity. As each course was presented, I would think to myself, the next course can't be as good. And then,...to find every single course was better than the last. Highlights were Aged Wagyu, Quail, and a chocolate dessert that was an out of body experience. Service was impeccable. Perfectly timed. Each dish was carefully explained, not robotic, bit passionately introducing the diner to these complex, yet brilliantly conceived unique recipes. Sidart, kudos for an evening that was just amazing!!More

An evening at Sidart is a very memorable experience. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is beautifully presented and delicious. I tried to pick my favourite course, but with 15 to choose from, it was too difficult. I highly recommend Sidart.

Sidart exceeded expectations! It was the perfect choice for celebrating my birthday with loved ones. The entire experience, from the delightful array of flavors, textures, and visual artistry to the impeccable service operated like clockwork. The menu featured dishes that sparked intriguing conversations at our...table, challenging our palates in the best way possible. A sweet touch was the chef's thoughtful gesture of organizing a mini birthday cake with a candle. I wholeheartedly recommend Sidart for any celebration. A big thank you to Chef Lesley Chandra and the exceptional team at Sidart !More

An elegant high end dining experience. We stopped in for the champagne lunch, on a Saturday. The first surprise was the lovely view you are gifted when walking into the dining room. Just wait to enjoy that!!! The food is creative, extremely delicious, and you...will be provided attentive accommodations for any and all dietary restrictions. Make sure you include this in your reservation ahead of time. As significant preparation goes into deviating from the standard menu. Overall a great experience, would definitely return. Thank you to the AMAZING service team who made our dining experience a great success.More
