We came for the reopening for the restaurant, Our server was a young Russian girl. Polite and welcoming professional but made us comfortable and relaxed. We followed her recommdations of the Short Rib and was no disappointed. The food was served hot and exceptionally plated and great tasting. We never got to try the restaurant month menu but will be back to return. The Man wearing a suit was going around the tables speaking with the guests what i find was really different compared to other restaurants i have been too. When he spoke with us he made the experience about us. what we valued. Towards the end of the meal. We noticed him making a cocktail at a table to a couple whom seemed to be laughing and enjoying it.

The overall experience from everything was fantastic from decor to the food and service it was great to see staff happy to actually be working. We are glad we came along and will certainly return very soon.

Stayed here now for a few times and the food has been absolutely divine. The staff in the hotel are amazing and so helpful. When calling for room service they was helping assist with suggestions for the food. I had the Thai Curry and the Crayfish Bisque soo many times brilliant. I can wait to come back and dine in the restaurant and meet the amazing staff face to face.

After reading these reviews below , I am shocked to have to inform visitor/customers to this hotel of the above Title ...

Made a booking and received confirmation for High Tea at the Windsor hotel for 14 February 2021. was contacted via my mobile phone to confirm and enquire about our 25th wedding anniversary?

Then receive and email, 2 1/2 weekslater, stating that they can't meet there obligation of reservation due to them accepting a total buy out for the Privileged few from the America's cup 2021.....

So therefore lets just kick our New Zealand customers (customers for LIFE -returning to spend there hard earned NZ$ within this hotel) ..to the CURB.......

NZ government minister of tourism states to Go Local and spend your money .....
Well, If you are thinking about using this Grand Windsor hotel you better make sure 100% they are willing to accommodate you in anyway and not be discriminated against because of who the customer is...aka hate to know what else and who else was treated in this manner ..................
