Had a lunch there, not impressed, noisey, stale alcohol scent in the air and trying to cater for the young crowd with americanised menu like sliders etc. Mind you a lot of other eateries have been indoctrinated by the slang of the US which now has surpassed the menus slanted towards France. Just do it for Kiwis please.

We had booked a movie and chose this restaurant through First Table due to it being close to the cinema. We also were able to preorder our meal which was a great idea, as our meal was ready on arrival, and we had time to chat and eat without rushing.
The hearty steak meal was lovely with a seasoned mushroom sauce, a colourful coleslaw, and tasty potatoes. The waitress was friendly, and the seating was comfy.

We got lucky on a Saturday evening and got a table without booking. The staff were really good and made room for us but I recommend you book in advance. The food was really good, we had a kids cheeseburger, 5-a-day burger and the pork belly. Portion sizes were spot-on, waiting time was good even though the place was packed and the service was very good. I think they also do take-outs. Great place.

Was after a light lunch for two so we ordered wedges to share. Waited well over 30 minutes for our meal and in that time a table of six sitting next us ordered their food after us and yet managed to get all meals delivered before our one bowl of wedges arrived. When they finally came out, bacon was still pink all over and barely cooked, salsa was weirdly sweet, the only redeemer to the meal was large amount of cheese that had been mixed through the wedges.

We are very sorry to hear that you waited such a long time for your order and that the wedges were obviously not cooked correctly. Thank you for your feedback.
