We had a bright, friendly waitress who was attentive and happy to assist with suggestions when we were having a bit of trouble choosing what to eat. The food was spot on. Really tasty and good sized portions were really nicely presented. we had fish and chips and the pasta of the day with lots of chicken and mushrooms in it. The onion rings were a superb starter, a personal favourite of mine. and I love that one bowl is enough for two or even three people. I can't wait to go back.

The steak cuts and the expertise of the chef to cook the perfect medium rear was impressive, - complimented by attentive service; we'll be back again!

Love the new Menu ! Fantastic Caesar Salad, and The Pork Belly was the best I've had in a long time. My boys really enjoy the colouring in pictures to keep them occupied while their Kids Menu Meals were being cooked. Superb Garlic Cob Loaf as a starter... And once again; Fantastic Friendly and Professional Staff : )

What a nice evening, staff were wonderful, nice greeting and our waitress was lovely. We all ordered steak meals and were told that because the steaks are so big and my husband wanted his well done, it would take 30min for our meals to be ready, which we really appreciated knowing. We were ok with that and so worth the wait. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back again. Thanks “623 In The City”

A casual place to eat. Staff friendly and service good. Meals average in flavour and size. Price a bit on the high side for what you get. Not a top 5 fir us

The food was nice, we order 2 steaks with different sauces but the sauces were mixed up and put on the wrong steaks which spoiled the meal. Onion rings were great.

623 restaurant, is set in an amazing old building, offering various areas to enjoy others company, watch sport, play gaming machines, alfresco or just find a quiet spot. The staff were great, attentive but not overly so. The food was presented well, hot & tasty, served timely.

We booked a table for four. Very good service, very good menu choices. We had soup of the day (toasted pumpkin and coconut cream) for starters and one in our group had pork spare ribs, a very ample entree. Two had spare ribs as a main and they were tender and tasty. Served with salad and roasted potato skins. Two had the king salmon
We will return!

Amazing Kai, my wife and I have not been on a date for a while, but 623 really catered to us and the kai was delicious. Definitely recommend them, also very impressed with the starters portion sizes, I'm a big boy so they really filled us up.

Not the first time we have dined here and won't be the last.
Great Selection of drinks. Food is nice pub grub only critique would be the lack of vegetarian options. However the vegetarian burger that was on offer was pretty tasty!
The front of house are always very friendly and helpful and have great customer service skills.
Service was super quick too

An average experience

- dined at 623 In The City on

lovely friendly service
food (typical when a steak is ordered & a steak knife gets delivered - why? if they can cook steak - steaks were tender & juicy & steak now was not need - totally recommend) & pasta was amazing

Yum! The Cheesey, Garlic, Sweet Chilli starter Bread was Delicious ! There was a choice of quite a few pictures for the Boys to keep busy (and quiet lol ) colouring in while we waited to share the Pork Bites Entree which were served with a scrummy coriander spicy mix dipping sauce... The Kids had Tasty Burgers and Fish n Chips while I munched on a Superb Crispy Chicken Caesar Salad that had a very real and proper creamy Caesar Dressing . The Staff are Fantastic! So friendly, and professional. Thanks very much : )

We had a pulled pork burger, wedges and chicken strips. Food was lovely overall, the burger had bit too much mustard. However, generous serving of wedges and strips. We enjoyed it! Will definitely be back!

Dined two adults with two children on their famous burger night on monday. We have had a few great dining experience at 623 in the past and wanted to come back for another occation. Unfortunaltely the burger my husband wanted was not available and he ordered something else and was not as nice as his first choice. I had ceaser salad and that was beyond my expectation, so delicious! Even my kids tried them and liked it(they don't normally eat salad). Overall great food and very attentive service. Would love to come back again.

Onion rings plentlyful, Greek salad was below average. Small and too many red onions (and I like onion). Service ok.

I dine here often. The service is always professional and friendly. The food is cooked well and always tasty. I will keep coming back

We had family up to stay so first table helped for the evening meal
We really enjoyed our meals, there could have been a little more dressing on the salad. I didn’t have salad but three others made the same comment.
Three had steak, which was cooked as requested. I had the pork which was great.
Disappointed that we had to ask to see the desserts menu, instead of being asked by the waitress.
All in all a good meal, good size and delicious

Great quality of steaks reasonably large meals quite spot to socialise early evening before the hustle and bustle of late-night and rugby season

Enjoyed the food but a little disappointed with the garlic bread

Angela Middlebrook

Service was a bit slow to begin with but when the friendly waitress took our order it was all plain sailing from there. The pork belly was so tender it practically fell off the fork. The house Pinot noir sadly wasn't up to par but I was very impressed how it was no trouble to swap it with a gorgeous Oyster Bay merlot. Was neat to watch the woman's rugby while we waited for our order and the kids enjoyed the colouring in. Thanks so much for a lovely meal, can't wait to come back and try the Mexican burger.

Another lovely meal at 623 on first table. It’s always difficult to choose from the menu as there are so many delicious things. The food is always beautifully cooked and well presented. The staff are friendly and attentive. It’s a pleasurable dining experience

Our waitress Emma was excellent - she was informative, super attentive and very personable. It was our first venture into ‘First Table’ and we were glad we went to ‘eat at 623’. It was a pleasant surprise that ‘happy hour’ drinks (5.6pm) were available. I think it is worth advertising this on the First Table - but maybe you can’t. We’ve already told our neighbours about it.
