The food and service was fantastic. Very attentive staff. The only problem we had was that we ordered two types of oysters (4 of each type) but only got one type (4 of them) we weren't charged but were a bit gutted. Otherwise everything was great and we will most likely return. Very busy for a Tuesday night I must... More

Had read restaurant critic reviews and all seemed worth giving it a go. I personally loved it (husband not so much). The food was delicious,the service good and the atmosphere happily noisy but not intrusive. Very glad we arrived early on a Friday night (5.30pm) as it was evident that it was a popular place. Not the cheapest dinner but... More

We tried on two different occasions to eat here as they don't take a booking under 8 persons and both times we were told it would be an hour and half wait. Is the food really that good?

This place is located in the post office and has a great ambiance. The three of us got lamb dishes which were fantastic. Top it off with some cider on tap and it was pretty much perfect.

This restaurant I would rate as one of the best in Wellington. Stayed across the road at the Intercontinental so found it very handy. This restaurant must be one of the most popular in Wellington.

Excellent service, got a drink and waited to be seated while we reviewed the menu, I had the flounder n hubby had the duck ragout parpadelle. Food was delicious, service excellent and atmosphere was fun. I would have given it a 5 star but I got really sick afterwards, it could have been the dessert I had after at another... More

Charged $11 for table water, table being perched at the bar over-looking chefs and one in particular using his tasting spoon to also 'plate-up' meals. Would expect far better in any establishment nowadays. A glass of wine each with Starters, no other drinks offered until asked about dessert menu. And only then because we cut-off waitress and asked for drinks... More

My previous two visits were much better. The restaurant was crowded, the noise level was tooooo high (but I knew that) however the good was not up to scratch, poor value compared to my last visits. I won't be going back. The wine was good but not cheap. Service was great. It's the good one comes for......sorry C N not... More

We have been Charley Noble regulars for many years - our favourite Wellington restaurant. After 2 months travelling overseas we paid our first visit since late last year and tonight was a major disappointment. The usual quality of service - unobtrusive, attentive, well informed - was conspicuous by its absence. But it was the quality of the food that was... More
