Your piano bar was the perfect venue our small birthday celebration. Fabulous service, great food, and we loved having our family pianist providing the music on your beautiful grand piano.

The only thing I would suggest is that the milk was served in milk jugs not jars.

It was a Tuesday evening, so pretty quiet; the spacious atmosphere is enhanced by having more diners. The occasion was a family birthday and knowing this the staff laid on a complimentary dessert sampler for the birthday girl. Well thought out menu, plated and presented beautifully. The chicken croquettes a visual and taste treat, the aged beef a highlight, the bread and butter pudding dessert a successful interpretation of an old classic was a table favourite.

Governor’s is a beautiful restaurant with high quality food and service, however I feel some dinner guests Could do well to take greater pride in their personal appearance. Dining attire is not cafe or shopping attire.

I felt menu was limited. For mains 6 choices 2 were burgers. Not my type of food at all and certainly not for fine dining. The service was good. We enjoyed our evening but I just felt the food choices let the other qualities down

Tuatahi. I find the name of your restaurant offensive and would encourage your owners to change it.

Main issue was our original waitress we only saw twice and she was not very attentive to our needs. Walked past our table a few times and did not notice or ignored empty glasses and plates. I believe there is currently meant to be one wait person for a table but we had 4 different staff members come to our table.

We ordered eggs Benedict with a special order on the eggs and a side of hollandaise sauce. The eggs were not done to how we asked and the side of hollandaise was poured over the wrong plate. Other than that, it took ages to get a seat as tables were not being cleared fast enough. We had a lovely waitress.
