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”

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

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.

One of the best dining experiences so far. The crew was very short staffed and managed extremely well together under the circumstances. We were acknowledged throughout our entire meal, everything came out piping hot, delicious and in great timing with the finishing of our entree's. My burger was the nicest I've had in Nelson so far (Crispy Chicken) the dessert was beautiful (Apple cheesecake) and the service reached my high expectations of thoroughly excellent customer service, so thank you team and thank you chef's. You've gained a customer for life!

Super helpful staff - not a problem when we forgot to ask for a high chair and extra seat for the kids. We were made to feel like VIP’s - nothing was too much trouble.. coloring pages for the kids, toys for the baby..
Food was fantastic, arrived hot and fast.. I had the chicken breast which was amazing - my husband got a little bit of dinner envy but then tasted his pork belly and was happy :)
Will definitely come back next time we travel!
Thank you!

A wonderful dinner t celebrate my husbands birthday. We had the most amazing ciabatta garlic butter starter to share. Real big and value for money. The pork bites with a chilli sauce were enjoyed together too. Really tender and tasty. Followed by very generous and tasty mains. My husband had the ru with mash potatoe, green veggies and mushroom sauce and I had the vegetarian cannaloni. An amazing evening was had and we will definitely be back.
