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.
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.
Wonderful meal .. the best service
Atmosphere only received two stars because the acoustics are very poor and it was difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was amazing. In particular, the entree of heirloom tomatoes, et. al., was delicious and the vegan steak dish was superb. Both dishes were well balanced and were enjoyed very mush. The sorbet dessert was also a very nice finish.
Unbelievable food, fantastic service!! Money well spent. We did have a wee moan as unfortunately my work colleague had a nasty experience in the women's rest room where someone had defecated all up the back of the toilet seat/wall. This was quickly reported to the Manager. Other than that, a very pleasing evening was had by all. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is wanting a variety of great tasty food with generous servings amounts.
Food was not the best for the price paid. The restaurant was really loud and we were seated in a very dark area. First time at this restaurant and defiantly had higher expectations
Late evening meal from the 'Bar Snacks' menu was really enjoyed by our group
Great food, friendly efficient service.
Lovely meal - it did take quite a long time to come out but was ok and we managed within our timeframe
I booked dinner reservation for staff gathering and they loved the dish they ordered, service was great, and one of the highlights are the dessert. It's fantastic. Thank you!
The steak was one of the best I have ever had.
Loved my tuna tapas!
Cheers to our gorgeous Italian waitress.
Delicious food and Mojitos (just a bit too much ice) ! Great service
Why waste money at Logan Brown when Foxglove is that much better and you can still afford a taxi home.
