We finally revisited SidArt as we knew our experience a few months ago was abnormal. We were not disappointed and SidArt was exactly how we experienced the previous times. Excellent service, fabulous food and great wine. Thank-you SidArt, you really do provide our closest Michelin Star environment. If you are looking for a special place to celebrate or just an...

I was in Auckland for the weekend and managed to get a reservation for the 5 course tasting menu which with the Amuse and pre dessert adds up to 9 courses. I opted for the matching wine and then enjoyed what has been without a doubt the best meal I have had in New Zealand during my travels. Each course... More

Tuesday night testing menu at $80 is one of the best deals around for fine dining. Regardless of the price, the food is outstanding, interesting, beautifully presented, and in a calm, cosy environment. Sophisticated dining, but doesn't feel uptight. A very relaxed and special evening.

Truely world class service, amazing food and flavours, one of the most unique views in/of the city plus a contemporary new fitout. Nothing lacking at the restaurant. Well worth a visit. Relaxed fine dining.

The food was very tasty and well presented, delivered in a timely manner. The waiter was very knowledgeable. If you don't mind paying for small amounts of food with tiny glasses of matching wine you will thoroughly enjoy this restaurant. I realise this is a degustation tasting restaurant but slightly bigger portions for the price you pay would be great.... More

To this date, probably one of the best if not the best restaurant we've ever been to with my wife! Top food, genuine art in your plate and most of all impeccable service. The top-notch quality of service provided is really what made the experience worthwhile, professional but intimate, a glass of soda water was brought to our table seconds... More

We last visited this location (different restaurant) 25 years ago when my wife's father walked out after finding out we were engaged. Memorable,though not in a nice way .. but that was then and Sidart is NOW. This time, from: the welcome, through to the ambiance, service, food, wine and a quick chat with Sid at the close, all was... More

We went to SidArt for the 7 course degustation menu. It was my daughter's birthday and there were 6 of us. To say that we were blown away is an understatement. The food was divine. We still talk about it months later. The service was possibly the best we've ever experienced. Our wines were recommended by their sommelier and were... More

The best treat for your taste buds! A degustation menu for lunch with matching wine is what we enjoyed and it was simply fantastic. If you are after burgers and chips go elsewhere, but if you want very fine food which is essentially artistry, this is something you will simply love. Great service and great dollar value for what you... More
