An amazing restaurant /wine bar with the best wine ever. The atmosphere was exilerating, with the whose/who of wineries there the night we went. We got moved to the private room , with one huge table. We had platters which were great and really complimented...the beautiful wine. The staff were amazing and really know there "stuff" and went out of their way to accomodate us. A whole lot of noisy winery owners and staff.More

Love coming here when in wellington. We shared some snacks and did some blind wine flights which are not only good value but a great way to practice your wine skill. Everything tasted great and was beautifully presented.

The food was great in a beautiful setting. The service was hit and miss waiting 1 hour for our main course and forgotten wine orders in the middle...maybe was a busy night.

Very overrated restaurant. Had a very unpleasant experience here. Came with some friends because someone I know recommended the place. We went just for cocktails and drinks and honestly you need to look what comes out of the bar. Drinks very expensive and flavourless. Probably...won’t come back.More

Service and atmosphere are good. We picked the place because of high rating. Wine is fine. However the food was over rated. Desserts were total disapointment. And we are charged for beer which we didnt order and found out after leaving the bar.

Noble Rot is renowned for it's excellent wine list, however, their menu is not so well known They offer a 5 or 6 course degustation menu with matching wines, and from experience I can honestly say the wines do match the food superbly Attentive knowledgeable...staff help make the whole experience one to rememberMore
