Description: The Taste of Our Place - Kia Ora, Kai, Kaitiaki. At Logan Brown, you'll experience a welcoming, inspiring and genuine taste of our place, our people and the produce that makes you proud to be a New Zealander. We opened in December Friday the 13th in 1996 and decades later it is way different but still the same! We have evolved with dining trends, service styles, taken opportunities with new product and techie innovations and of course will continue to do so. What has never changed is the sharing with our guests our true passion for our craft, our community and our country. We want everyone to be as proud as we are about New Zealand’s environment, the land and seas bounty, and the amazing people who harvest or produce from it. Working closely with these passionate producers inspires and excites the team who are proud to share their stories, and we always welcome new seasons and new to the market produce from suppliers and give it a go.

The food was the best part of the evening but the maire d' ignored us all night - even after we said hello to her when she gave us the bill (she didn't answer us). Perhaps it was because the previous time we'd been there, we'd complained that the glass of wine we'd received from the restaurant tasted off and we asked when it had been opened - she said "5 days ago, don't you like it?". There also seems to be a high turnover of staff there and the staff don't appear well trained.

Wow. We had the tasting menu with matching wines - what a special treat. The food was delicious and the wine matches perfect. The staff were very knowledgeable about both the food and wine and obviously loved their jobs.
If I ever go back to Wellington I'd definitely return to Logan Browns

We did the Saturday night degustation menu, which was lovely.

I think you just have to experience the place, you won't be disappointed.

Check out the bar when you are there - I mean the actual bar - it is a marine fish tank, complete with baby crayfish.

Stunning friendly service, who both knew what they were serving, but also weren't afraid to let their personalities shine through. (We got the waitress who had happened to bust the main restaurant light).

It was a lovely night, just try to squint when the bill comes so you can't read it. Ignorance is bliss.

We attended Logan Brown for a pre-theatre dinner last week. This is not the first time but whenever we are in Wellington we like to seek out the new and the "old" in fine dining. Nothing wrong with the "old" when it is as consistently fantastic! in fact we love the anticipation and relaxation of walking into the Logan Brown establishment knowing we can enjoy the food, wine and service all beautifully presented. Food and wine are always served with great attention to detail and with a real appreciation of flavours and their balance. Reservations are easily done and we book when we buy our flights, often months in advance. Well done team, you 'do' everything so professionally and we will return next time we are in Wellington.

We went to Logan Brown after hearing so much about it. We were not disappointed. From the moment we were greeted to the time we left we had a fabulousness evening. The wait staff were well trained and were very friendly. Water glass filled without being noticed and the food arrived quickly and hot!!! The skill of the chief was proven in the subtle tastes which came through like little mini explosions leaving me wondering what was coming next. I had peppered squid for of tree and it was truly exquisite. My main was lamb rack and it was cooked to perfection.
The decadent chocolate fondant with orange was ...... Well just plain naughty. !!!!!!i would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for that " special " occasion
