This is certainly our favourite restaurant in Nelson. The service and atmosphere are excellent. Justice and Nikora the wait staff were tops. The menu is superb, the presentation and the food is just exceptional. The fillet steak was cooked to perfection and then the cheesecake. This was the nicest cheesecake i have ever been presented with or tasted. The whole experience was unfaultable. The upstairs seating is the nicest if you are wanting quietness and a place to talk. Thank you for a lovely meal out.

The restaurant was bright, warm and spotless with a lovely gas, log fire going which gave a lovely atmosphere. The service was excellent. The food we ordered was of a very high standard in presentation and taste. The steak was served to perfection. If this is maintained we just could not fault this restaurant, food or presentation. Outstanding. Thank you.

it was the second time I have dined there and once again, the food was absolutely stunning.
Great presentation of the food and the taste and quality is amazing.
Staff again were friendly and helpful and fun
This is now my favourite restaurant and I would happily go back again and again.
Love the seating in front of the bar to sit and relax after the meal, felt like being in a hotel lobby, which is always a good feeling, like being on holiday.
I would recommend this restaurant to everybody and I look forward to my next meal there

Honestly we have been in NZ for 7 months now and this is the best service we have ever had in any restaurant we have ever been too. Not too mention the food was amazing! I had the rib eye and it was cooked to perfection and my boyfriend had the lamb shank which was also perfect

We (family of 4) dined at Flames on Forty on Friday night - initially we were the first ones in the restaurant but it very quickly filled up. Our waiter Nikora was first class - very patient and engaging with our children. He never once made us feel rushed and he engaged in conversation with us. The head waiter - a lady but I didn’t get her name - was also fantastic. Checking everyone was happy (all tables) and how they were enjoying their meals. We will be back and will definitely recommend Flames on Forty. Thank you

This was my first time at this restaurant as not from Nelson. The service was amazing. The waitress was so friendly and helpful which helped make our experience so much better. The food was hot, delicious and full of flavour. It was a really nice touch to add the bowl of water for rinsing hands after eating the ribs.
Thank you for a very pleasant dining experience.

This Restaurant is a Hidden Gem !! I always thought it was only Open for House Guests. High Class in all aspects! Excellent Variety on the Menu and The Best Service I've had in a long time. Great Wine List with non exuberant prices. We ordered Gnocchi, Salt and Pepper Calamari, Seafood Chowder and Lamb Shanks. All Superb!! And The Kids Menu was Brilliant; we chose the Option of the "Fun Pack" which had a great variety of Kids Meals, A Dessert; a Drink, and a Puzzle/Colouring Pack with Stickers. Happy Kids !! Happy Mum : ) All the Service Team were Professional and Fun !! Thanks : )

We had a wonderful meal at Flames on 40, the staff were friendly and very helpful with altering the dishes to sit an allergy. The meals were not too small but not so big that we couldn't fit in one of their delicious deserts. A great dining experience.

Overall, this was a great dining experience. The food options were largely traditional fare, and really well cooked.
Louis, our waiter, was friendly, attentive and efficient. Even though there was a misunderstanding over one of the orders, the staff were up front and apologetic and it did not detract from our enjoyment at all. We ordered duck spring rolls, mussels, lamb shank, peanut butter cheesecake and creme brulee.
All good.
