We had such a good time! My friends and I did a Lux Lunch for my birthday and the service was amazing, food was good and atmosphere was incredible. Will definitely be coming back.

My friends and I booked for the Lux Lunch and we were a little disappointed at what we received for the price we paid. The pre made mimosas seemed quite weak and the platter we had for our entree was just mainly bread. Didn’t feel it was worth the $65 price tag, probably won’t be back anytime soon

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. We had an issue pouring our jug of gin and the staff were happy to refill our half spilt jug with no questions. Will happily visit again

Only blemish was serving fillet steak on a cold plate. By the time we were half-way through the meal it was cold. The air-con was fairly cold which did not help.

Hi. Food was good. Those drinking the cocktails were impressed. One of our group had the gnocchi which seemed a very small serve for what i imagine what i assume i quite a cheap meal to make? He was disappointed. We had about 6 salads etc to be shared among the table and half of them came out very late when most of us had finished our meals. Apart from the two issues above it was a very good meal thanks.

Brilliant food, and excellent service - our waitress full of smiles, helpful and attentive. Quite a lively place, so not an “intimate” dining experience but ours was a family occasion, so fine - just a high level of noise. On the pricey side but a great location and wonderful venue, so what do you expect? :-)

Pork Belly Salad wasn't the best - general consensus from most of the ppl who ordered that - didnt have any dressing and a bit bland

We had our work function here and my workmates and I could not have been happier with the outcome. The team were SO amazing and helpful and made the experience flow better than we ever could have imagined. The food was delicious, the drinks beautiful and very tasty and the timing of everything as well as small details such as having bar leaners set up to shift to after our meals.. just fabulous! I will be spreading the word far and wide about these guys and recommending to everyone I know, ESPECIALLY for large group functions. Amazing work TT, we loved our time here and appreciate every staff member that was involved in the process. Also, big shout out to Amy for being so patient and helpful!

Service was very slow and not overly helpful. We were a party of 9 and not alot of othe people there at the time we arrived. Almost felt as though we were a burden vs a source of income for them. Took between 5 and 10 to pay the bill which was wrong then got told to wait while they got someone else to sort it out meanwhile 2 staff were standing talking.

Meal sizes were quite small, platter option could have been bigger or another platter provided. The staff and their service were amazing however and the food tasted great so overall we had a lovely time.

Food was a little over priced for the quality, compared to other restaurants in Christchurch. Service however was great, staff were lovely and very attentive. Creme Brûlée was amazing!
