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.

We arrived our reservation time at 6:00 pm and was promptly greeted and seated. The restaurant wasn’t crowded at all. The person who sat us was pleasant and said someone would be with us in a moment. After looking over the menu, we had a...couple of questions. Two servers were talking with the bar tender, appeared to be just chatting. We finally got their attention after waiting for them to come 15-20 minutes. I had to ask for my drink twice as well. Then another 10 minutes or so to take our order. We then waited around 40 minutes for our meal to come out and be served. We realize it’s not fast food, but over an hour before we even were served was excessive. The eye fillet and risotto had a nice presentation and was good, but not really attentive in the service to check on us. We then had to flag down a server again for our check and she said she’d let our server know. Another 10-15 minutes goes by and we get up to leave. I had to literally ask for the check again. Same person who said she’d bring it said we’d need to go to front register. Didn’t tell us that the first time. Poor service (1-2 rating) and food (3-4 rating). I’d probably choose a different place next time.More

We had dinner last night after selecting Oak & Vine due to the great reviews online. It did not disappoint. The food was great as was the service. We both had the fish and it was grilled to perfection,

Really enjoyed this restaurant after we finally found it 😁. Had the eye fillet and hubby had Chicken Maryland. Food was very good, as was service. Loved the quiet ambiance as many Wellington restaurants are super loud and noisy. Will be back.

My wife had the eye-filet and I had the lamp rump and both were only ok. The lamb was too tough and chewy. In fact, the lamb we were served at our hotel restaurant the next night in Blenheim was much better. Two of three...waitresses were very poor. They could not describe the fish of the day, nor the other entrees on the menu, and had to go back to the kitchen for explanations. And when we were served, she couldn’t tell which plate was the lamb and which was the eye-filet. One of these was very sweet and said it was only her second day, which partially explains her unfamiliarity, but one would hope for better training.More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary last evening. Every course was wonderful, and service excellent. Keira went the extra mile for us, and organised for us a surprise consisting of 3 delicious macarons with 'Happy Anniversary' piped onto...plate in chocolate. This was a lovely touch, and we so appreciated it. We both enjoyed all courses, but did absolutely love the mushroom, spinach and mozzarella cheese flatbread as a starter. Our steak was cooked to perfection. We will definitely return, as this is one of Wellington's exceptional restaurants!More

Had a grass fed ribeye while in Auckland we thought was good until we tried it here. The meat was excellent, combined with fine wine and excellent service. Nice location and trendy look, The menu isn't large but the food was cooked perfectly.

An issue I find with a lot of these pseudo-high class restaurants scattered across Wellington (other culprits being the long-uncool Hippopotomous, and the poorly managed Jardin Grill) is that its price reflects its desired customer base's capital, and not the quality of the food or...general experience itself. The high price point sends affluent people through the doors with great expectations - unfortunately, care has not been taken to craft an experience of meaning and value. The food here is, of course, below average. The price however is enough to send any working class foodie into certain despair. Took the wife and child (14) here for a special celebration and we all left feeling miserable and hungry. We stopped at McDonald's on the way home to attempt to feel some semblance of joy through food. Tip: Skip the entree, attempt to stomach an embarrassingly cooked steak, and never return.More
