Firstly the chairs we seated at were not comfortable or suitable to dine from, they were arm chairs that were more suited for a lounge as they tilted you back, had to sit on the edge of the chair to eat. The music was too...loud and not easy listening background music. The entree's were very basic, garlic bread was supposed to be ciabatta and wasn't and there was no garlic flavour. The steaks were OK, but the vegetables were disappointing. Carrots and broccoli more al la dente than would like and the potato au gratin tasted precooked and reheated as were the duck fat potato's as they were not crunchy or crisp as you would expect. I suspect they have a cook as a opposed to a 'chef' but the prices are 'chef' prices.More

We had a lovely meal, three of us chose steaks which were tender and perfectly cooked. Cocktails before hand were very nice and the service was efficient and friendly.

Always a pleasure to dine here. Defintely deserves it's place at the top of the Palmerston North places to eat. Great steak. Only slight niggle was the room was quite warm due to the great weather we have but there are worse things to worry...about (and I didn't ask for A/C to be turned up)More

Great evening out in what has become our preferred restaurant for special events. We both had the eye fillet steaks which were cooked very well. However the only glitch this time was the cheese cake desert in which the cake was too dry. The waitress...was exceptional very courteous. Waiting time for food was not great but I appreciate the restaurant was nearly full. We booked for 6.30pm and arrived in time but didnt get our meal until 7.30pm and we were supposed to be out by 8pm according to booking information. Overall though we will be backMore

Had a great time. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. The staff were able to accommodate a late minute addition to our party. The venue was busy but you did t get a sense you were jammed in. Service was good and the food was...excellent. Looking forward to going back to try more off the menu!More

Absolutely the worst place for Service. Since New ownership it’s the worst I’ve seen might as well go to the nightly roast house. Over priced with terrible drinks and low quality food ($55), the poor staff who only have a small handful on working per...night. I have seen the owner come out to complain to another table in front of everyone wearing a basic ugly tshirt, but don’t worry he illl still serve his ‘regulars’ in full class. Apsolutle joke of place can’t wait for new ownership who know what they are really serving and will serve with real class.More

A lovey setting and friendly welcome. Our waitress was quite nice while seemed abit frustrated that we were treating the dinner as a catch up and taking our time. We ordered a nice red which was put in a decanter and tasted lovely. A bit...surprised the staff passing didn’t check or fill up glasses. Food was nice and I would go back.More

Great service and food. We had lamb rack and fillet steak which were both lovely- we felt the steak was a little under and I ordered the lamb medium which was perfect. The potato gratin was so good and a great wine selection too. Wait...staff were super friendly and we had a great experience - too full for dessert!More
