Stunning position and views towards the lake but the quality of steak/meat and sides don’t match. The Eichardts quality doesn’t extend to the restaurant, advice is to stick to smaller bites in the bar.

My partner and I dined at The Grille looking for smaller portioned higher quality food. Our choice of red meat was cooked to perfection, as were our sides. A fantastic wine and cocktail selection to accompany our meal. The service was inobtrusive and polished. Really...lovely staff. And the atmosphere, decor is superb.More

Poor service. Plenty of tables available for breakfast and most people were eating, however they were unable to provide breakfast to us.

My boyfriend and I came in for his birthday dinner and were absolutely blown away at our experience. Our waitress Jacoba gave excellent service and helped me with the vegan options (the butternut squash kebabs were SO GOOD) and at the end when my boyfriend...said he didn’t want desert, and asked for shots instead she surprised him with a board that had happy bir thday written on it in chocolate. Both my boyfriend and I work in hospitality and have pretty high standards when it comes to service and she went above and beyond. A huge Thank you to The Grille and Jacoba for an amazing night. We could not be more grateful!! :)More

Not only was the food amazing but the service was outstanding. Just outstanding. I mean the maple sauce with the onion rings was just wow and the lemon and kawakawa marshmallow...holy damn.

We didn’t need all the pomp. Just a hamburger. But how average. Cold un-toasted bun, very tired filling. However the shoestring fries were just fine. At least that redeemed there reputation a little. Wouldn’t bother to go back.

Having been recommended The Grille by friends for our recent trip to Queenstown - we decided to treat ourselves. Beautiful location by the lake and lovely decor, lighting and excellent service. Sadly, thats where it ended. Considering this restaurant is at the high end price...wise - I was expecting a greater dining experience. We were dining together as two couples, both the boys had steak which was just OK with both being slightly overdone. Lamb was very well cooked but accompaniments were average, and side salad and dressing not pleasant. For our final dinner in Queenstown, we all left quite disappointed.More

My partner and I came for dinner before leaving Queenstown. Gentleman who did our table service was really nice and polite and my partner really enjoyed his steak. However, I thought “seasonal vegetables” could be done better. I basically got battered banana with some sauce....As a vegetarian I had a better meal everywhere else in town. I thought it would be a bit more vegetables for 26$. Our side dish of broccoli looked pretty sad too. Overall experience was good but not great.More
