Housed in the former Greta Point tavern building that was famously moved to its current site by barge in 12 pieces earlier this century, Foxglove Bar & Kitchen opened June 2010 in the heart of Wellington’s Queens Wharf precinct.
The owners have designed a series of smaller spaces within this large building, bringing a sense of intimacy to the different lounge areas. The three bars within Foxglove have their own unique personalities, adorned with a touch of 1940’s vintage glamour and coupled with sweeping harbour views from every vantage point.
The Champagne and Oyster deals were fantastic
Shortened menu however nice
Overall excellent experience
I’m super disappointed! Although the venue and drinks were really nice (and the setup of my table), the service was absolutely shocking. I came for my birthday, which Foxglove knew about, but the staff actually seemed quite indifferent and even reluctant to store my cake in the fridge (which I told them about while booking). They also tried to charge me full price for drinks - which I pointed out were actually 25% off as it was a Thursday (although again, this was advertised online as being $10 drinks or some other deal). They told us they would take our order from the table but never did meaning we had to keep going up to order, which would often involve a 5 minute wait while they wondered off and didn’t even acknowledge that we were waiting to order. They also made my sister bring out the cake, and only provided a lighter for the candles AFTER she asked multiple times. No assistance at all, and they had her carry the cake out in the box, no cake dish. Also they didn’t give us enough plates for it. Just a shocking experience overall quite frankly which is a real shame as it is a gorgeous venue. Let down terribly by its staff. Don’t think I will be back for a long time.
The meals were amazing, my husband said his linguine was the most flavorsome pasta he’d ever had, and my lamb was cooked perfectly. The accompanying veges were different and delicious The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and service was very quick. Overall an excellent experience, thank you!
A great location for a business lunch, the staff were attentive and friendly and the food was great - I recommend checking out the express lunch - great value.
Very good service by most staff. Good presentation good as was flavour.
Great service, Delicious food
Absolutely loved my foxglove experience. Amazing steak served by the warm and friendly staff. Will definitely recommend it to my friends and family and I will definitely come again. 5 thumbs up from me 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Booked in for dinner at 5.30, before the Queen concert, so a super busy night for you guys. We were met by Tom and taken to our reserved table. He was so attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him. A woman staff member queried our presence, making us feel a little embarrassed, like we’d done something wrong, but Tom’s manner eclipsed any hassles. He’s a star, you should treasure him. Oh, and the food was fab!
A wonderful evening at Foxglove which hosted me and 19 friends. Food was fantastic and the wait staff incredible. 10/10 would reccomend.
Absolutely loved the food, and the staff were all super lovely! The only minor issue I had was that I struggled to hear my waiter over the music.
Food was good but took far too long, around 45min from ordering which doesn't work when you're on a 1hr lunch break. "Express Lunch" is misleading as it just means you get all at once, not any faster than other menu options. Staff were pleasant but made an error with not placing 1 order with the kitchen causing a further delay, we were compensated with a complimentary beverage for this. Half our group had to leave for meetings before everyone had finished eating. Not great TBH.
Staff are amazing.... nothing is too much trouble for them. You can enjoy a sophisticated vibe of dining and then move to another area/upstairs for casual chic vibe. Private function rooms add a further dimension of choice. This place rocks!
We were a small group of friends and we enjoyed the dining experience very much. The staff were accommodating, if a little shaky at first before they got into their stride. We were also disappointed to learn we could not partake of the Christmas menu unless we had advised the restaurant in advance--I was not told of that when I booked, though I was told our group could choose either the Christmas menu or the main menu, provided the whole group partook of the same menu. However, we very much enjoyed the food we did get, though the people who had the pork found the amount of the very spicy daikon, while tasty in a small amount, was too much to cope with. Re the atmosphere--while fun and friendly, the acoustics / noise level made conversations a little difficult. On the whole, though, a very enjoyable evening and we would do it again.
The waitress was extremely professional and had great customer service. She was very accomodating to us as a big group also. The food was great and the atmosphere was also excellent !
We had a delicious meal with great service and atmosphere. Always a delight to dine at Foxglove. Look forward to the next visit.
This was our second group booking to Foxglove. After a little hiccup at the start - we got a la carte menus at table instead of set menu I had arranged - Alex sorted this immediately and had new menus with us in a few minutes. Alex and the team were amazing - very efficient service, great food, and they were always there attending to any requirements we had. Really impressed with Foxglove - again! - and we'll be back.
We love the location. This was our office Christmas party and the team enjoyed it immensely. Thank you for a wonderful day.
Cooked perfectly and very well presented. Wait staff knew their subject and were very helpful. Prices compare favourably with other similar establishments. Venue is very well situated.
Thank you for making our event so special. Your staff were supportive, attentive and an absolute delight. Thank you again :-)
Thanks - this was a wonderful experience - service was exceptional and the food was superb flavours and quality ... will be coming back again for sure!
Lovely view over the harbour and a great place for people watching.
