I had heard good things about Sidart, and put it on my list as a must do when in Auckland.

The service was outstanding, nothing too much trouble, including altering dishes to suit dietary requirements.

The food was wonderful, the Waygu probably the best beef I have ever had!

The views were also stunning, if you get a chance to go, you will not be disappointed!

We went to Sidart to celebrate a special birthday, with a special dinner. We opted for the 6 course tasting menu, which was both very well presented and of course very tasty. For our group, the six courses was enough to fill us up, but we did have the option of adding in a bit more if it was required. The team at Sidart were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Our first choice of red wine was not available on the night, however our wine we settled on was excellent.

This is a top end dining experience, which I rate as good as any top end dinner we have had overseas.

One of best meals I have ever enjoyed. Delicious food, uniquely created and beautifully served. The service is delightful- cordial, friendly, and unpretentious. Chef Lesley Chandry is brilliant and manager Joe Costello is a superb host.

My wife & I had always wanted to visit Sidart based on its stellar reputation, and did so for our Wedding Anniversary dinner. We knew the cost would be above average for fine dining, but it was far from excessive, and worth every dollar for the exceptional quality of the food & presentation. We chose to dine a la carte, but would be tempted to try the 6 or 10 course degustation menu next time, as we both had 4 delicious courses anyway. Every single bite was fabulous & delicate, and while it was all great, the poached fish curry entree was a delight, and the Aged Wagyu maybe the most stunning piece of meat I have ever tasted, I could so easily ordered another as it was sublime. This one superb dish will be reason enough for me to return again soon. The meal was perfectly accompanied by 3 excellent wines by the glass, each outstanding. A final word goes to our friendly & informative presenter of each dish, she was lovely.

Food was fantastic, we tried the 18 (small) courses meal with wine pairing, the cheese selection was amazing too. Presentation of each course was great, fantastic service overall.

Sadly, the main thing we remember from the evening now was seeing them beg for a tip after with some pre-filled US-like percent of total price. This is NZ, this has absolutely nothing to do here.
