Our food was ok but not very well seasoned and a little bland. Our service staff were really friendly but forgot to bring back the wine list when asked for. Took a while to get to take our orders. The views were great and a really well decorated restaurant. Overall not bad but needs to pick up the game with so many amazing wellington restaurants.

I surprised my husband for his birthday with dinner at Forage. The service we received was exceptional, including complementary bubbles and a visit from the chef to ensure everything was to our liking. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. A wonderful experience.

Appreciated being able to get a booking so late for Christmas dinner . The food and service was excellent and the Christmas crackers were a subtle and effective decoration for the tables. Beautifully decorated tree in the foyer too

Enjoyed the meal although disappointed that there were no green sides on the menu. No broccoli, beans or anything green apart from a Caesar salad.

Service: Plates weren’t taken away very quickly, we were given a desserts menu and after some waiting to order was asked ‘anything else?’ Food: wasn’t impressed with the mushroom entree seems like some cost cutting was happening as it was 1 mushroom sliced and each individual slither fried. More batter than mushroom. I love mushroom and would have liked more as it was the reason I ordered the dish. Felt like everyone was seated in the same small area rather than spread out through the restaurant when there were tons of tables free. Excellent Mojitos would go back for a few drinks but not dinner.

The food was lovely and so was the restaurant but they seriously need to train the waitoring staff they really had little experience and were very disorganised especially considering the restaurant was quiet

Dinning environment is good. But service wasnt that good on the day. A blonde lady who served us was a bit pushy. When she was taking our main plates, she asked do we want a dessert. We told her what we wanna get and told her please place the order after 15 mins. But the dessert served on the table less than 10 mins.

We had scallops for starters, which only had and 4 scallops on the plate and it was absolutely flavourless and underwhelming. For $19 I would have expected more than 4 scallops (average to small in size) and for it to include something other than a thin slice of radish and some flavourless puréed white paste on the plate. We then had the pork belly (which is the ‘signature dish’). The crackling wasn’t crisp, it was chewy and soft and the quite fatty, and again the whole plate lacked any interesting flavours. Probably the most interesting thing on the plate was the Kumera Rosti! We had the chocolate tasting plate for dessert and the 4 chocolates on the plate were like something you would pull out of any box of chocolates, the crumbs strewen all over the plate tasted stale and the mango and (what maybe was) strawberry purée tasted like the ‘EZY-Yo’ yoghurt flavours you purchase from the supermarket in a bottle. The food was terrible! Especially for the price! I would never recommend anyone dine here.

Very attentive staff, although a number of different people came by during the meal. The food came out quickly and was presented well, met expectations. More vegetarian options would have been nice. Value for money as we used the Entertainment Book, if paying full price the menu doesn't compete with alternative restaurants with similar pricing but expected for a hotel restaurant.

My husband and I stayed at the Grande Mecure for our 48th Wedding Anniversary. And dinned at the Forage Kitchen and Bar. Two nights. The Meal, Service and atmosphere was lovely. We would recommend the Forage to friends if going to Wellington. Thank you to all Staff for a lovely time. Denise
