This is one of our favourite restaurants. The service is wonderful, and the decor is gorgeous, rustic; fresh garden flowers on the tables - I love it! So was delighted to be going there for my birthday. But we were a wee bit disappointed - the duck with pomegranate seeds was a little over-cooked, and a finger bowl would have... More

24 of us converged on Hawkes's Bay, from many places, to celebrate a big birthday. Saturday night was a private degustation dinner with wine matches at 1024. I'd wanted to come here for ages and it was a terrific experience. Relaxed but skilled and knowledgeable staff, and wonderfully creative food. Things I would not normally touch (lamb's tongue) were just... More

Classy, relaxed, casual. The staff make it all look easy & it is all so very good. Service good, food excellent, interesting wine list. The restaurant is roomy, bright & well laid out. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Great place to try a meal out of the ordinary; plenty of great places in the Hawkes Bay for ordinary fare but Kent Baddeley likes to be a innovative with a daily menu. An innovative daily menu means that it is not the same old same old and Kent puts a lot of thought and attention into creating something different.... More

This is the second time we have dined at 1024. 18 months apart. We loved the atmosphere, service and the food was awesome. Menu was varied, understand changes daily. Interesting options, beautiful flavours and combinations. Tried things we do not normally order - lambs brains, slow cooked lamb neck, artichoke rolls. We loved everything.

Fans in the past we were greatly disappointed this time around. Service is lousy and the food is an absolute disgrace! NZ$32 for 8 mussels of which 4 were so undercooked it was impossible to open them… The menus is an unpleasant mix of items most of which are just “the chefs choice of the day” no further explanation. He’s... More

I love Taco Tuesday at Ten Twenty Four; It is simply amazing. I went to TT46. Im usually not a big seafood eater and dont usually like it but Kent Baddeley (CEO of Ten Twenty Four) somehow seems to hide the seafood component and make it absolutely delicious. Kent developed my liking of seafood to loving seafood. I loved the... More

Always had wonderful service and beautiful food but not this day. The waiter took our order of fish with carrot mash and ginger plus a meat dish for my partner. When mine arrived there were 4 large mussels on the dish which I am allergic to. I told the waiter who said that they could put down every thing on... More
