“Mostly great”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

It had been over a year since I had dined at Table and past experiences had been pretty good. The ambience hadn't changed - the menu had a slight variation on the last time - No specials were explained to us - we only found out there were any specials when the next table had it explained to them - too late we had already ordered. we chose the hot platter to share for a starter - sadly the scallops were stone cold - pointed this out to the waitress who didn't apologise or even seem to care. She was a humourless soul with chipped green nail polish, never smiled and over-used the word ''lovely''. The main course of Duck was delicious; the wine list never fails to appeal - all in all a pleasant meal that could have been made so much better with a little friendly, welcoming service.

Come on Table - I know you can do better!

“Simply Superb”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

After an evening that far exceeded our expectations, I felt I just had to add a review for the Table Restaurant and staff. We celebrated a 60th birthday there over the Easter weekend and wanted to create something special and asked if we could incorporate some live music into the evening. I liaised directly with Rachel (totally via email) and she recommended we set the band up on the decking area and to commence the evening with champers and canapes. It was just magical with the gas fire adding a cosy, intimate atmosphere and I could have stayed there all night. It was very relaxed and the staff regularly came round serving trays of drinks and to see if we required anything. We then adjourned to the private dining room, an elegant dining room off to the side, away from the rest of the diners. What a lovely spot to come together as a family and enjoy a meal, we were very impressed with the room and the table setting. The staff were very attentive and saw that our glasses were regularly replenished. It was no trouble for the staff to accommodate us with any special requirements we had. The cake maker liaised directly with the staff and the cake came out as prearranged, which they then served with coffee at the end of the evening. I would definitely recommend the Table Restaurant and will definitely go back there again. Thankyou for a wonderful, wonderful evening. :-)

“Very Nice”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

This was our first ever visit to this restaurant,We were greeted by some very nice staff and seated in a room off to the side of the main room as the place was very busy .The staff were great and overall the service very good..Our starter of a platter to share arrived promptly and was good, the Prawns and scallops very nice and the pork sliders just ok.Our mains soon arrived we had the Duck and a steak both very nice but the duck was the star.The wine list seems very extensive with something for all tastes.we enjoyed a sparkling and a couple of glasses of Hawkes Bay red at around $12.00 pr glass, but they were good full glasses.We shared a cheesecake to finish off the eve which was very average ,Overall a nice eve and we would go again .

“Delicious - an experience not a quick bite...”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We dined with a large group at 7.30pm, and we had a private room adjacent to the other guests. The menu selection was varied, something for everyone. We were addressed with warmth & respect from the waiting staff. Drink orders taken, separate bills set up which some restaurant don't like to do. The drink serve needed to be kept a better eye on, as at one stage I went and asked for drink service.
Most had a three course meal, my steak was perfect, but one of the others was over cooked - they didn't say anything so the restaurant couldn't offer a solution.
Entrees arrived at an hour after we arrived and it took another hour between the entree & the main which we felt was a bit long.
We requested more vegetables for the table as there was not enough to go around - this wasn't a problem but I think needs to be considered. There was also a salad for the table.
Dessert ordered and they came out within good time.
Overall the flavours of each dish were tasty and well presented. Lovely atmosphere, will dine there again now knowing that it's an evening event.

“ok”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

There is a beautiful tropical garden. The food is good but the portions are too small especially for the price you pay. We appreciated our dinner but we won't return there.
