    Average food menu with nothing outstanding.

      Hi Keith, thank you for your feedback. Sorry, our food wasn't up to your standard. Our menu is seasonal so still, keep your eyes out for our new dishes.
      Cheers, TLBG

    Big thanks to Zoe in particular, who served us with an obvious pride in The Lodge. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was spectacular. We had drinks, 2 bottles of an excellent Hawkes Bay red and a fabulous dining experience spread over 3+ hours!!

    If you haven't had a meal at The Lodge before now, it's time you did so. It is a wonderful place for a lovely meal, beautifully prepared by obviously very professional Chef's.

      So happy Grant that you got to experience our beautifully curated meals by our Executive head Chef Matt Lambert. Definitely a flavorful experience like no other!
      Hope to see you soon so we can continue to wow you.

    So pleasantly surprised. The Michelin star executive chef and his all-star team made for an absolutely incredible culinary experience. Very much value for money. Perfect for date night or a treat to excite the taste buds. The service team were exceptional.

      Thank you Jason for an outstanding review! So happy to hear you had an amazing experience at our Auckland venue. Make sure to visit us soon or any of our other venues if you get a chance, I can promise you won't be disappointed:)

    Had a late dinner here and it was great. Recipes don’t use excessive ingredients in dishes, and are executed very well. Little garnishes on dishes enhance them and aren’t placed on just for garnish sake. Food tasted great, and the service was excellent, particularly from Summer. Would absolutely go back if we lived locally.

      Thank you for the review Stu! We definitely think less is more to showcase our local produce in our dishes. If your ever in Queenstown or over in Brisbane Australia, you'll have to come check out the other veues:)

      Thank you Kevin! Glad you had a good time with us at Auckland.

    Our first night in NZ and such a beautiful first impression with fantastic service and even better food. The wine list is local with a lot of lesser known Euro varietals, mid range prices and recommendations from well trained and friendly staff. The Spaghetti Con Pepe tastes like it's straight out of Nona's kitchen and the seafood as fresh as it gets! Thankyou for looking after us, we highly recommend The Lodge!

      Thank you for the review Siobhan! We love to hear glowing reviews of people who have enjoyed there time with us at The Lodge Bar & Dining. Our pasta is made fresh every day, and is definitely a crowd pleaser. Look forward to you visiting again when you are back in NZ.

    Last minute decision to make a reservation was rewarded with nice ambiance, absolutely outstanding service, and a superb meal and wine list. Our meal included the fresh catch of the day (Grouper) and a fresh pasta dish, accompanied by a salad of fresh greens, ricotta and pecorino cheese mixed in a house-made Basil dressing. I have nothing but superlatives for the entire meal. Being a wine lover, I asked many questions about the wine list and the staff not only tolerated me, but gave me outsta – show

      Hi Russell,
      Thank you for the glowing review! This is great to hear that your experience in Auckland was exceptional. Our staff are very equipped with wine knowledge and are always patient in making the right selection of wine. Hope to see you next time you are back in Auckland.

    The best meal I had in the CBD! Better than any other restaurant near the harbor! Highly recommend! Very nice and friendly service!

    It was amazing.
  • 14 december 2022, 2:07 pm
    The service here is outstanding! We arrived promptly for our booking only to be told we had booked a table in Brisbane not Auckland. Oops. The staff were amazing and accommodated our group of 10.
    The set menu made ordering so simple and the food was fantastic.
    We ordered cocktails and they were superb.
    This experience was perfect for a team dinner but the star of the night was the waitress, best service ever. Attentive without being annoying, built rapport and accommodated us after our botched b

      Hi Amanada, we are very happy to hear that we were able to accomodate your group of 10 into our Auckland venue. Even better to hear the service was exceptional! Come and visit us again, as our menu is seasonal and you will always be delighted with new items to try on our menu.
      Thank you for your review.

    Not a great experience for money spent.

    Amazing service. Amazing food. Amazing drinks. Would go back any time

      Thanks Damien, would love to have you come and see us again! Glad you had an amazing experience at The Lodge Bar & Dining.

    Our server was terrible. They were cagey about where I could sit despite a mostly empty restaurant. The starter I ordered was ridiculously small and not at all like the description. Our server was rude and kind of condescending. The only reason I gave 2 stars is the location which was quite nice.

      Hi Meg, we apologise you didn't recieve the service you deserved. We usually have seating set aside for reservations, as to why you might have been limited to certain tables. I have passed your feedback onto the team to make improvements, thank you for the honest feedback. Once again very apologetic, as we try to ensure everyone enjoys their experience at The Lodge Bar & Dining.

    Excellent food and service. Not fussy but attentive. Risotto, market fish and generous green salad all hit the spot for new arrivals.

      Hi Margot, thank you for the review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us, come back and see us again:)

    Dropped in for a few snacks & a negroni. Everything was perfect. Service excellent.

    My son and I had a bite to eat at Gochu, before having lunch here.

    We decided that we would have a couple of plates to share, which was a good decision.

    The service was excellent with one particular waitress.

    We decided on a plate of pork belly and another plate of seafood risotto.

    The risotto dish needed a bit more of a spark up with the flavouring, as it was missing on the taste side.

    The pork belly was well executed, with two reasonable sized portions, and the seasoning was perfect for m

      Hi Peter, thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your dishes, the pork belly is definitely one of our favourites! We will pass the comment on the risotto back to the team, thank you for being honest. Looking forward to having you back again.
