Great dinner for two with my wife. The Eye Fillet was fantastic but not sure if I will try lamb brains again! Great service and nice secluded spot with a lovely view of Wellington.

Delicious and unique meals using uncommon part of animals, good portions and tasty veggies. Would recommend if you manage to get a discount (entertainment book for instance).

We enjoyed a pleasant meal at Forage as a group of five on Valentines Day evening. The menu is interesting, the food well presented and flavoursome, although the two who had the fish as a main felt it was slightly on the overcooked side. The staff are extremely friendly and approachable, however we felt couple of small things could be improved. The delay in two entrees arriving at the table after the rest of us had finished ours was a puzzle particularly as one was a cold dish and the other soup! Sincere apologies were offered and accepted and the entrees all thoroughly enjoyed eventually. The restaurant was fully booked so perhaps put kitchen and wait staff under pressure which we felt was reflected in a lack of attention once food was delivered to the table. It's always nice when wait staff pop back to check that all is being enjoyed and ensure glasses are topped up and it was that attention to the finer detail we found lacking. Overall however we enjoyed our evening and would probably revisit.

Food was delicious but the wait was too long probably due to a large group dining at the same time. Friendly service. Enjoyed trying a dish I would never see in the USA. lamb brain. It was great!

The food was fine and the views were good, but service was very poor. We waited over 45 minutes and then had to ask if we could be given our bread. We were asked if we had ordered food twice during this period. We noticed other diners had similar problems.

Ham was amazing. Dessert buffet fantastic and well presented and man behind it was friendly and entertaining. More seafood would have been nice, and salmon better if cooked slightly more. There was a large variety though, wonderful salads. Labels for relishes would have been handy. Whilst paying at end the young lady couldn't mathematically work out the bill. Instead of taking off deposit somehow managed to add it in and wouldn't accept that she wasn't right. (At first told us the amount to pay more only $111.00.) We could go on however but recommend that the cashier/maitre d for your hotel would be someone of experience, high level of etiquette to benefit all. Overall it was a lovely meal and great for our large family get together to have a stress free dinner. Thank you to all the staff for working on Christmas Day. 😀

Lovely, friendly staff. Comfortable chairs and nice cocktails. The food all tasted great. A complementary wine and some more variety for the deserts would have been great but no complaints on anything!

The service was exceptional. My husband’s cake for his birthday was delivered by the supplier of ours and it was damaged. Matthieu and the chefs did their best to make the cake look good and presentable. I also want to say thank you to Etienne and Zyrille who looked after us. Will definitely recommend it and will come back. Thank you for making my husband’s birthday memorable. This is the first time we experienced an exceptional customer service and the food in the restaurant was so delicious and the serving portion is big, we didn’t eat afterwards as we usually do when we eat in other hotel restaurants. Thank you again
