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.

Before we arrive our guide told us to advise restaurant what time we wanted to dine. As soon as I got in the room I called the restaurant & they were booked until after 7:30if I came immediately they could serve me. I am a...party of one. I got there immediately & was told all the tables were reserved but I found 1 table in the bar area. I ordered soup of the day, tomato, so salty I could barely eat it. I asked the waiter several questions & he didn’t understand English very well, nice but didn’t know the menu well. I asked for plain butter on my bread, came with garlic, which I don’t eat, & not mentioned in the menu either. I asked for onions to be left off salad & ranch dressing. The onions are already in the salad & the dressing too but he did bring a side of ranch. Thank heavens I ordered French fries they were the highlight of the meal! One of our group requires gluten free & they came up with something. I noticed others in our group arrived @ 8, their reservation time & were told no tables available.More

We ate here on our first night and found the food to be excellent and the service to be on a par. Even though there were a couple of large "touring" groups we were not kept waiting .

As soon as we had finished our meal I had to rush to wifi so I could write this review. Wow what an amazing meal we had. We started off having the house bread which came with a basil pesto sauce and a garlic sauce...all of which was great. We then went on to order a share plate which came with beef, lamb, chicken, potato gratin, mushrooms and broccolini all for $70. What an amazing dish. Everything was cooked to perfection and just melted in your mouth. It is very rare I leave a restaurant and feel completely content and excited with what I just ate but I did tonight.i should also mention that the staff were fantastic. Very attentive and friendly. I can’t wait to come back to Queenstown just so I can eat here again . Thank you so much for this amazing meal. I will be raving about this place to everyone I know when they go to Queenstown.More

Dined here with my husband and toddler. The staff were great and the meals were delicious. I had the lamb and my husband had steak, the meat was beautiful and tender. Our toddler loved the potatoes, chips and breads. The view from our table was...overlooking the main road so easily entertained our girl. The dining room was a little cold though but this could have been because we were right at the window.More

Went here for lunch and ended up staying for about 5 hours. We all ordered the Impressions burger and only one of us could finish the meal. We stayed and had cocktails all afternoon while steering out to the beautiful lake and Mt Siril.

In my 25 years of global travel this is the first restaurant to have the same menu every single day of our 4 day stay. This is quite strange and must be the easiest thing for the chef.

Ate here for two nights in a row as I was staying at the hotel. The food is nice enough. The breads lovely as too the seafood chowder. The bucket of chips are huge so best for sharing. The staff in general are lovely, except...for one vacant one with an exceedingly low comprehension of English....I'm still waiting for my beer from the first night! Otherwise it's not too pricey, especially for this town.More

We were so impressed after our first dinner here we went back 2 more times over our stay. It is a relaxed atmosphere with a stunning view. The staff were friendly and courteous. Between three of us over three nights we sampled quite a lot...of the menu and were never disappointed.More

Next to our hotel and discount from our hotel. We wandered in after a long day, towards their closing time and were given fantastic service! I'm very impressed with impressions! The view was gorgeous, the prices were good, and the food was delicious. My son...had the club sandwich...HUGE! I had the lamb curry-very good. The peppered steak was amazing and we loved the presentation. I wish i could remember our servers name because he was super sweet. Highly recommend this off the beaten track spot.More

I really don't know. I strongly recommend that you contact the restaurant about when they might not be open. Sorry.
