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.

This restaurant had excellent service and food. The veggies were fresh. The style was unique, but delicious. Food is suitable for vegans, vegetarians and carnivores. They were even able to decrease the amount of mozzarella on the flatbread to accommodate someone with dairy issues. Dinner...was expensive, but worth it. It was one of the few places that asked for a tip.More

Great food & wine suggestions. Nice level of service from knowledgeable waitstaff. And a short ride from downtown with bus stops right outside.

As a solo diner I really felt well taken care of. I was given a seat with floor to ceiling window views of the outdoors and right next to the visible part of the kitchen. Being able to see dishes being prepared, including my own...really made it a memorable experience. The wait staff were lovely and helpful, and the food was delicious.More

I was impressed with the menu, the presentation but mostly the food itself. I felt the portion size was appropriate, pricing was on point and the presentation was lovely. They have a great selection of local wine and beer which I love, and the cocktails...use ingredients from their own backyard. I enjoyed the atmosphere, cozy and romantic but also very fresh. The staff were all so friendly, knowledgeable and patient. I would highly recommend those visiting Queenstown to make a booking and enjoy a quality fresh meal in a beautiful establishment.More

Superb meal in every way. They have their own vegetable and herb gardens and it shows. Most of the dishes featured vegetables prepared in creative and delicious ways. We did the feed me option and they brought out a ton of dishes. We couldn't finish...several, but loved the ability to taste so many things. Service was friendly. Just a lovely meal in every respect.More

A wonderful night to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Only...downside was we were seated at a high table and the stools got quite uncomfortable after sitting there for a couple of hours.

Slightly out of the centre, taxi needed. Overall was a pleasant experience with local produce etc. I was expecting something different from the online presence and while it did not dissapoint, it lacked atmosphere I felt and also the food came very fast so we...were not long there.More

Lunch here was one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in recent months and definitely a standout for our one week stay in Queenstown. Food was excellent, the design of the restaurant interesting and beautiful and staff were very helpful. You really felt that...the restaurant’s philosophy of souring produce sustainably and locally was being followed and was more than just a marketing strategy.More

My third time at Sherwood. The food is really good. The “Trust Us” options work very well. The service is warm and friendly. The wine list is interesting, too. But, before you even get to sitting down, arrive early for your reservation, get a drink...from the bar and go outside and sit in the garden, gazing across at the Remarkables. You won’t be disappointed.More

Hi Rachael, thank you for your question! We love dogs and have guests who come in to dine and seat outside in the courtyard with their pets. Unfortunately, we don't allow to have dogs in our hotel rooms. Best Wishes Sherwood
