After a year of degistations this is my best todate - the food was innovative and the meal flowed without disapointment, the service was exceptional with the staff being present but not in your face all the time & the ambience was excellent you were able to talk without feeling like everyone was hearing your converstion.

Not a specific special occasion when we dined at Sidart recently, however once there it becomes a special occasion. Excellent service, fine but relaxed environment, the food the ultimate star of the show. We had a scallop and sweetcorn dish that will not be forgotten. Each course an eagerly awaited adventure...Our recent visit we were treated to some innovation as... More

what a lovely surprise to have found this treasure of a restaurant on my recent trip to Auckland. About 5 kms, I guess, from the city centre Sidart is easily accessed by cab. I think it is in an interesting part of Auckland but I didn't have time to explore. The restaurant is modern and the wait staff exceptionally good.... More

Sidart is food art. This recently refurbished restaurant should never not be chosen should you be looking for a quiet congenial atmosphere to enjoy simply the most divine food in Auckland. It is absolutely world class dining. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We have been twice now, and both times have been an absolute treat from start to finish. The second time we took the family and they adapted the plates for one pregnant. They took pains to describe what was on the plate as presented, and then made sure they they were specific to how it had been adapted as they... More

A really nice find in Ponsonby, even though you wonder if you're heading in the right direction. Food is artistic and delicious. Service is what you'd expect in such a fine establishment. One of the very best eating houses in Auckland.

Not convinced, went in with high expectations, too many common elements through the tasting menu. Environment not good enough for the pricing. Good food but not exceptional.

We wanted to treat ourselves and Sidart was a really treat. Each mouthful was a treat. We loved the beauty in each dish both in taste and looks. The polite and quick service was laced with some chat if we wanted making the whole experience wonderful.

Amazing, delicious food. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the money and time. (takes about 2-3 hours for 5 course degustation)

We ate at Sidart. My wife is a foodie and so we were looking forward to this evening. To begin with, the food was very good as was the service. There was no choice offered other than the degustation 8 course (small portions) option. We were however asked for any dietary requirements (none). The meal and wine match cost around... More
