We loved our lunch here. Delicious food, generous portions and great service. We would certainly visit again next time we are in Queenstown. Would be a great place for a group meal; lots of fun and nice food to share.

The food was exceptional. Rack of lamb was voted best meal at our table. Skirt steak second. Both the lamb chops and VeriZon were very good. Appetizer - pork with apple cider purée bested the other apps by far Sides - honey roasted carrots and parsnips were reordered and the duck fat potatoes and spring rounded out our meal. Wine list was very good. Lights were a bit bright and the steel stairs on the dock gotta go. Overall a very good experience.

We had a lovely experience at Public Kitchen. We had a friendly waiter who helped us with our selections. The food was excellent, with nothing going to waste, our only disappointment was being too full for dessert! Thank you.

Share plate style dining - wonderful food, options for all family members. Beef rib so tender you didn’t need a knife. Warm inviting atmosphere.

Food is great, but not the oysters. Hope that the waiter would be friendlier. Really appreciate the help given when we didn’t know what to order though!

A massive thank you to the staff at Public Kitchen & Bar for hosting our large (and very loud - sorry!) work group for dinner last week. The team thoroughly enjoyed their meal - the food was excellent, and the service was fantastic. Thank you!

Love the option to share meals......two entrees and two salads was more than enough to feed the three of us. David was a great host and recommended a wonderful wine to pair with our dinner. GREAT JOB!

I regularly dine here when in Queenstown as it is good for small and large groups. Service is always friendly and flexible to cater for various needs of a group. One of the best features is that the background music is set at a volume which does not intrude on conversations.

I always enjoy my meals at Public as the food is good, wine list covers most tastes, and the music is played at a volume that makes conversation possible. My only wish is that the chef's choice would be available for groups of less than 4 to make selection of a good meal easier!

Great service from staff, super attentive and helpful! atmosphere was warm and busy especially for a Tuesday evening, the place was full and buzzing by 6.30/7pm! Food was great, came out quickly, we had lots of vegetarian options which were amazing, highlights were the cauliflower bites and baked camembert! Would definitely recommend and will be back :)
