About Smith & McKenzie
Quality steaks are a highlight of our contemporary menu. Most of our steaks are sourced within the greater Waikato, with great care to ensure your steak experience at Smith & McKenzie is second to none. We also offer several special occasion and function options including a Chefs Table dining experience and the private McKenzie Room, located on the mezzanine level.
We had a awesome time, everything was perfect we will definitely be back again.
We had a great time. We will be back S&M
Food and environment was stunning! Staff could smile more and not roll their eyes so much. Not very friendly at all! Very slow too.
We loved our visit as usual 😀
Food was yum and service was great thank yous
Great experience even though chowder was cold. Quickly rectified and meal was faultless. Great that the cashier acknowledged our issue and didn’t charge us for it plus gave us some vouchers for next time. Five stars. Well done. Goes to show that mistakes can happen but can be addressed quickly and not spoil the evening. Brilliant place and superb steaks. Will be back next time.
Great food & service
Your waiting staff did their best given the shortage of them (only 2) and the fullness of the resturant. Your kitchen staff however were slow and unmotivated. We waited 20 minutes to be served and then over an hour for our meals to be arrive, with 7 of us including two kids and a toddler at the table this was a hugely long wait. Our medium and medium rare steaks were all very well done, cold, under seasoned and flavorless. Our garlic prawn sides were all cold arriving with soggy stale rocket and had clearly sat for a long time before service. I wont come here again and I wouldnt recommend it to others. Most disappointing.
Absolutely beautiful meal will definitely be back.
Unfortunately I had a terrible experience with the food, first time the wrong sauces came out and not enough, then it came back and bread was so hard it almost broke my teeth. It shouldn’t be that hard to get an entree right.
We loved our dinner tonight. Perfectly cooked steak and excellent sides. My daughter loved her surprise birthday muffin and she said it tasted great! Also got a takeaway dessert which came with all the usual condiments which was lovely to take home. Thanks so much to Smith & McKenzie for a lovely dinner!
Since moving to Cambridge we have not been to S&M, and for my daughters 12th birthday, she requested to go there. We booked stating that it was her birthday. She ordered from the kiddies menu and the chicken strips were great as was my Southern style burger from the Bar menu. That's where it ended. My husband ordered ribs that came out so dry that there was no meat to even cut off the bone. We returned this to the kitchen. He requested a steak insead. The steak was small for the big price, with most of it being fat and sinew which he trimmed off himself before eating what was left of an even smaller steak. My daughter ordered dessert and we waited expectantly for the birthday cupcake to accompany it.... then gave up after 20 minutes and went to pay. The annoying thing is that the cupcake was on the bill ($0) but it was not a mix up when booking, rather an oversight by the staff. At the counter my husband expressed his dissatisfaction, and was promptly offered a voucher, whiich we DID NOT take. Why would we return? Being part of the Loyalty programme, I recently received an email offering me $30 off my meal as it is my birthday coming up - NO THANK YOU. It's not about vouchers or discounts, it's about paying for a quality meal and expecting to receive as much. Very disappointed S&M.
Way over priced for the disappointing meals
Booked a table. Arrived right on time. Table was not ready. Waiter told us the fish of the day said he would be back in a minute to take our order. He never came back. Finally got the attention of a waitress who took our order. Had to gerr drink order followed up twice. Very disappointing service
We were a very unruly team ordering at different times. Servers handled it well. Thanks. Everyone at the table noticed how much the prices have gone up, especially for wine so the discussion turned to other available options in the area for dining
Disappointed that we ordered the slow cooked steak for 4 people had a reply email to confirm but the order wasn’t actually placed. No hard feelings you made good on the night. See you again next time
Genuinely five stars all around. The team was great and made for a memorable night. Venue was beautiful, allowed us time to set up and the team took care of the cleaning making it easy for us to pack up. Staff upstairs were great to deal with and added to the fun atmosphere. Thanks Karma for taking such good care of our guests and family. And thank you Kendall for setting everything in motion. Great venue, great atmosphere and great memories!!
Always consistently good
The young woman who served us is a credit to you - please pass this on to her
We ordered the 24h steak and the scotch and both were cooked to perfection. Could have shared sides as they are quite large.
Andrea is an Asset to your establishment. She gave us Great service & Very Knowledgable of the Menu.
Great service and perfect atmosphere to have a wonderful meal. We celebrated mother's day we our 1 year old son and the staff were so kind with us. We recommend this place for any occasion.
