Great ambiance and service.

The rib eye and accompanying sauce was great. The truffle mashed potatoes were on point.

The salmon was perfectly cooked and balanced with the acidity of the slaw.

Our experience at Bloody Mary restaurant was delightful. The chateaubriand was cooked to perfection, and the service from the attentive staff was excellent. While the prices were on the higher side, the quality of the meal and service nearly justified it. However, it's worth noting that visitors having to pay $6 an hour for parking to dine there felt a bit excessive. Overall, a great culinary experience .

Lovely meal and service but this was spoilt by the costs we incurred whilst dining there. We were not advised that the cost of still water for us was $24.00 and we were told that parking at the Ridges (where the Restaurant is located) would be $6.00 an hour, we were charged $28.00 for being there for just over an hour, felt totally ripped off!! Be warned, this place is very expensive and their menu is not the same as online.

This place has supposedly good ratings and high pricing to believe that the service, food and wine would be at least good. None was so. Starting with the wine, we ordered a bottle of Black Estate Sauvignon Blanc, which has to be their best Blanc. The waitress opened the bottle and did not even offer to try, just poured the wine into the glasses. Not expecting bad wine at such place we did not object. However, the taste of the wine turned out to be strange and the color was not transparent at all. The wine was spoiled. The waitress acknowledged it at the end and said ok. No refund, no apologies. It was the worst service during our 10 days in NZ. The food (ribeye and waguy) was overdone. We ordered medium rare and it was not medium rare at all, completely overcooked. Besides, it was salty. For the steak house, which specializes in meat, this is just a complete failure. The sides were bad as well. The only good and tasty dish turned out to be tuna crudo though it had only 3 smallish rings of tuna. Overall, 300+ NZD for a disastrous service and meat and spoiled wine. Worst experience in NZ.

wine was spoiled, meat was overcooked, the wagyu was not Japanese wagyu actually
When we said to a waiter about the wine, she agreed and that’s it.
