About The Square Restaurant
Serving fresh, local produce with a kiwiana flare, in a modern and charming atmosphere, the Square Restaurant with à la carte lounge offers semi-formal dining in contemporary surroundings.
We are sorry but this restaurant is not currently accepting online reservations through ResDiary.
Service was bad. Had to wait 5 minutes to get seated. The egg cooking chef was rude. Lined up first but he gave to a person who lined up after first. Staff was rude. Food was average.
If we hadn’t had Accor plus discounts the prices would have been over the top. As it was, we find the price of wine both at Novotel and Ibis very, very heavy. However, we enjoyed the meal, and the wine, but wouldn’t like to do it too often.
Service from serving team was excellent. Only comment is the Vegetarian main needs to be changed - Too many chick peas...but overall food is really great.
Part of an enjoyable evening.
Staff were very welcoming and helpful. There was a good range of food. I had the two course dinner special. The entree and main were both excellent.
Delicious food. Great service. 👍🏿👍🏿
We were so very disappointed with the time we waited once seated to get our drinks.. 20 minutes later we were advised our choice of wasn’t chilled or available. Another 10 minutes went by until our second choice arrived. Our entrees & mains were fantastic & tasty. Our desert tasting plate was a huge disappointment.. I thought a tasting plate was made of all small bites on the desert menu. Not memorable at all. It wasn’t as though we hadn’t booked in advance.. the secret to good service is to at least offer & serve drinks straight away. Seemed like the staff were on a training session!!!
We were not that impressed with our night out unfortunately. We ordered a bottle of red got given it with two glasses not even poured. We found a table and opened the bottle and poured our own glasses. put lid back on then another man came a long and undid the lid and put it beside the bottle? We asked to be seated at our table and the had to take our own drinks and bottle with us, so had to put the lid back on...…. My husband ordered the fillet steak and received the fish fillet which was taken away and returned after I had finished my meal We were offered some garlic bread to have while we waited but then he wouldn't be able to eat his steak so we passed on that. When we left my husband said we will never be eating their again! Kind Regards Katey Gregg
Very nice meal in great atmosphere.
Great meal and service, thank you.
I stayed for 3 nights dined at The Square for dinner on all nights 1 had entree and main on 2 nights and main only on one night All meals were excellent the food was cooked to perfection from the scallops to the venison to the steak. Thoroughly enjoyable with excellent presentation and the staff were well trained and attentive.
Entree was scallops which was nice but small for the price.. very nice dining experience.
Always have great food here and service. Lovely and relaxing atmosphere. Staff are always very helpful and give great customer service.
Great place to dine,complimentary drinks for our anniversary was a nice surprise.Thanks
Nice meal. Long wait. Attentive staff
Always a very relaxing experience in The Square. It's a sophisticated dining room with an excellent food and beverage menu. The service is outstanding - professional, efficient and welcoming.
My steak wasn't great. I asked for medium. In todays terms it was over cooked. No criss cross grill marks was disappointing. Appeared to be cooked for too long at not enough heat
Lunch with great service in a pleasant atmosphere. The beautiful complimentary dessert for my friend’s special birthday topped off a superb lunch. Highly recommend.
Food was over priced and very plain.
Staff are very welcoming and helpful. They acknowledged us on our second night dining which is good to be remembered.
The staff were exceptional. In particular Megan was friendly and very helpful. The only downside was no salmon as listed on the menu.
We had excellent service from the waiting staff. Very friendly and professional. Food was excellent and what we like about the atmosphere is you can have a conversation without yelling like in most restaurants. We are Christchurch locals and come here 3 to 4 times per year.
We were a little pushed for time but pleasantly surprised at the turn around time - 2 of the 5 eating were vegetarians and i am a meatetarian but we were all catered for with some lovely dishes not too big but just the right size to leave satisfied - we weren't drinking but we did view the wines on offer so maybe next time... and great service from the staff...
Wonderful service, great staff and beautiful food
