As well as A La Carte we offer a 3 Course Trust the Chef Menu & 8 Course Ode Experience Menu Friday & Saturday as well as a 5 Course Test Kitchen Tasting menu every Thursday.
Wonderful last evening at Ode... Lucas, Katie and team delivering a faultless 5 course experience ... thank you for the past three years of sublime dining and good luck with your future plans.
Ate at ODE on the last test kitchen evening. Despite the sombre time that is approaching with the closure of ODE, the team are the ultimate professionals. The service, ambience and food could not be faulted! Thanks team for a wonderful evening and all the best for your future endeavours
It is always a great experience to dine at Ode. Great service and the personal touch that goes with each course. Excellent wine matching advice.
Fantastic colab dinner for my birthday. Really top quality as usual. My only hope is that the world does not lose Ode.... Kia kaha
Test kitchen meals delicious as always ❤️
Our 3-course chef's menu at 'Ode' was truly a culinary experience we will remember for a long time. Such care and thought taken to balance texture, flavour and visual presentation, and we enjoyed the personalised description of the different elements of each dish. Recommendations for wine were also excellent and service overall was efficient, unobtrusive but attentive.
We had an exceptional dining experience. We had the test kitchen and it was one of our most memorable dining experiences ever. The food was amazing and we were impressed with the quality of the wines available and the staff were lovely. Thank you 😊
Test kitchen on Thursday nights is a great way to introduce friends to the Ode style. The food is amazing and such innovative ways of cooking. Well and truely a dining experience of the very best kind.
Fabulous food and great service
Enjoyed trust the chef’s 3 course dinner. Attention to details, personal service, very efficient, very relaxing atmosphere. I hope someone will buy, invest in this place or they will close on the 8th nov. It’s worth while to keep.
Fabulous, a unique experience great food love the set menu's good wines. Thank you
It was awesome as always!
AMAZING. Couldn't fault the food or service. Truly blow away. Friendly staff made the experience so much better. 10/10
Best dining experience of my life!!!!
Fabulous food and brilliant service
Food was great, highlights for me were the soup and dessert. Service great too and the recommendation of the dry riesling with the dessert was spot on. Got a bit noisy later on so was hard to talk. Really enjoyed the evening, thanks to all the team.
Absolutely stunning food & service thank you 🙏🏻
Wonderful meal. Fully recommend.
Fabulous and creative dishes, friendly services and warm atmosphere. Highly recommend 👍
So impressed with the professional, informed, friendly staff and gorgeous food. Delighted to find staff friendly and relaxed yet efficient - not stuffy and too formal. Every dish was a taste sensation, made with obvious care regarding flavour, texture, source and presentation. This has to be one of the best places to eat anywhere in the country or world. Impressed also with the fact they remembered that one person at our table could not eat chilli or mushrooms and catered accordingly. We had the 5 course test kitchen and so pleased that we did. Such a pleasure to eat beautifully prepared dishes you wouldn't make at home, and discover new combinations of ingredients. Every dish a winner - even the main course which often suffers compared to starters. Kia kaha Ode - Kia manawanui.
We had a fantastic “Test Kitchen“ menu dinner (one Plant based and one Wild shot game) at Ode which exceeded our expectations. The food was creative and flavourful using the best of local organic ingredients in line with the team’s philosophy and values. Beautifully presented and what a joy to experience. The simple menu makes you wonder in anticipation- it’s worth it! Favourite items were the pumpkin butter milk and curly kale soup for my husband and mine was the deconstructed apple crumble which cleverly encompassed the warmth of poached apples that had been caramelised along with cold home made Apple Sorbet and moist financier almond cake and dehydrated cake to make the crumble so you had an interesting play of temperatures and textures in the mouth all at one time, it also was perfectly balanced and not too sweet so a perfect finish to a wonderful dinner. Many thanks to the team at Ode. We will be back on our next trip to Wanaka.
Great food. Great service.
One of the best dining experiences you could ever hope for.
A wonderful evening. We loved being able to see the Chefs in action creating our exquisite meal . The Meal was a perfect balance of flavours and presented in a clever and artistic way. Such friendly knowledgeable waiter and waitress. Thank you for a very special evening.
This was outstanding - innovative, interesting, delicious. Well done to the Ode team
