First time dining with Caucus Restaurant and using First Table. Fantastic friendly service and yummy menu. We ordered from the fine dining menu - breads and dips, fillet steak, a Korian dish (and a burger for our child) and finished with the tastiest desserts - chocolate lava cake, panna cotta with cheese, brandy snap and other flavours that just blended beautifully and our child ordered the belgium waffles and he is still talking about how yummy they were! Great selection of wine too. Great dining experience :)

The service was friendly and the meals were not oversized and were tasty.

It was Xmas night. I booked 2 months before and told it was al a carte as I wanted to avoid hefty price. I confirmed the day before online. We got there. No booking. No al a carte. Only a $90 Xmas meal each that was terrible with terrible service. No one said merry Xmas. No bon bons even though others had them. But we were trapped with nowhere to go on a cold night. So why make a fuss and ruin it more? Absolutely outrageous. So glad I cancelled my Accor membership.

Service was top notch. Friendly n courteous wait staff. Atmosphere was a little noisy but it was expected on a Friday evening. Fish was absolutely delicious. Big servings. Dessert Panna Cotta was Ok but had tasted better elsewhere. Entree was duck croquet which was yum. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

We had a great time at Caucus. Arguably fine dining at it's best! We ate the fish of the day, eye fillet steak, and rack of lamb between us. They were cooked to perfection. The flavours were amazing. The meat was top quality. The dessert was equally good. The Panna cotta was an interesting blend of flavours, with honey cheese, meringue and pecan nuts, but was a delicious taste explosion in the mouthThe food was the right amount for fine dining,, leaving us satisfied , but not bloated. They told us that they recently changed their menu. It was a amazing. Would definitely return

Amazing night out! Drinks were topped up regularly. Food was delicious and good sizing. A bit on the expensive side so first table was the way to go. Would 100% recommend to friends and family

We loved our meal at caucas, the staff were great, helpful and friendly, the meals were very good I had the lamb rack which was beautiful but it could have had a few veges as it was a bit sparse, hubby had the ribeye which he said was awesome, desserts were lovely, throughly enjoyed our meal out.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food. Had to ask when our drinks were arriving, as we had run out of water, no effort to top the water up. Then one of the drinks turned up as beer and not wine. Staff very pleasant.

Really lovely place to dine when staying at the Novotel hotel. Small menu with only one vegetarian option but good portion size and very tasty. Was pleased there was milk available on the kid's menu as my boys prefer that over fizzy. Wish I had room for dessert as the options looked delicious.

I went to Caucus on Friday evening with my partner. I ordered the rib eye and she got the King Salmon. The meals were both beautiful but recomend getting some sides which we failed to do.

In Wellington just got the weekend to celebrate my brothers birthday. Food was delicious and well presented. We both had the salmon and tiramisu for dessert. Would definitely recommend!

Enjoyed our lunch but found the lunchtime menu quite limited and somewhat boring. Would need to diversify before we came again. Excellent service from the waitress though.

the atmosphere was distubed by people going down the side of the restaurant to a lift - they need a wall instead of the curtain which everyone seemed to love to swing.

Given we were the only table in the restaurant for much of the night (we were a 6 with only a few of other tables of two), the service was quite slow. Food was delicious and good value, aside from the desert, which was tiny for the hefty price tag! Location is what made us book this restaurant though, and would probably go again despite the above.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the menu is different to what is online so the food we were planning on having was not available. The food that we did order came out presented beautiful but was seriously lacking any taste or enjoyment. I am glad I booked through first table as I would of been very disappointed if I had paid full price for the food I got. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone
