Perhaps the best dining experience yet, with our young family. Very welcoming and accommodating, friendly and mindful of our needs the whole time. The waitress was lovely, remembered our boys’ names and even offered to hold our baby so I could actually eat my food - that doesn’t happen very often, it was so sweet of her. The food was great, exactly what I was expecting, the boys were blown away by the pudding!! Would highly recommend using the First Table experience to a young family as a restaurant is quieter earlier in the evening and you feel less like a burden to other diners with having loud and busy kids running around. Would also highly recommend Fifty Gorillas Grill. I’d like to go there again without kids to see what it’s like in full swing and a live band playing too!

First time dining here. Three of us dined, each having a burger, and we got some loaded fries to share. Staff were friendly, service was great. Food was excellent! My burger I had here would beat the famous Fergburger in Queenstown by a mile! Was so full from my burger, I Couldn’t order the waffles I wanted to try! Oh and those cheeseburger loaded fries, I could just go a bowl now! Thanks for a great meal.

Dinner was really lovely as we were greeted warmly by the staff and the food that was served promptly was just amazing! We really enjoyed the ribs and I personally feel like their ribs are one of the best in Dunedin.

My god the food here was so good. The ribs were moist and delicious, but the chicken was on a whole other level. The coating was great and when you dip the chicken in the sauce it became simply incredible. Easily the tastiest meal I have eaten all year

We were 4 hungry gorillas and left very happy and satisfied. Our menu choices were great, well priced and very tasty.Desert was fun...waffles with amazing variations. Funky decor. All in all it was a groovy night...we will be back!!!

Our family enjoyed a wonderful evening at Fifty Gorillas....the burgers were absolutely delicious, and my husband LOVED the chicken and waffles (a rare treat in Dunedin for an ex-LA guy).
The poutine was outstanding and we had to restrain ourselves from licking the plate. Everything was washed down with the very good Panhead beers available, and we all had a taste of the waffles for dessert (my son’s eyes were almost as big as the serving when it arrived to the table). Special mention to the great decor, and to the relaxed but attentive staff who smiled and accepted our daughters rambunctiousness. Thanks Fifty Gorillas Grill, we will be back!!

The food was delicious and we had exceptional service. The meals we ordered were tasty and we did not have to wait long to be served which was great. Nice atmosphere as well.

We had a great time at Fifty Gorillas last night, the burgers were epic, nibbles were nice, the chicken Parma was insane, the waffles and chicken were a little dry together, overall 4/5. The service was great the staff were very attentive, friendly, aware. Beer selection was great, although the "Gorilla Co beer" is actually Speights. Cool vibes, I would like to go back there when a live band is playing, while you eat. See you again!

Wonderful warm welcome - great service and nice easy menu. Food was very tasty, great presentation and hot. Good selection of beers and we were offered a taster as the one we selected was not available. Nothing but good things to say!

Service was superb, if there were potential concerns, they would discuss with us in advance to solve it.
From the table, non-vegetarian food was excellent, however, vegetarian options were limited and okay.

The restaurant had a great atmosphere. There was live music and the food was great. However, we had to wait an extremely long time for our food. Waited almost an hour for the burger and same again for dessert. People that had come in after us were getting food before us? The woman working front of house, (think it was the manager) was brilliant and made us feel so welcome.

Great tasty food with excellent service - we tried the chicken burger ; veggie burger ; ribs and fries - plain and loaded - big portions so will return another time for waffles n icecream - best first table .

I really wanted the 1kg steak challenge but they said it was not on the menu. So was pretty gutted about that. Drinks are crazy expensive for tap beer, so would not recommend for a drinking session. Food was great for the price!!!

Service was strange, we ordered first out of three tables that entered at 5pm and waited until the other two tables received their food before ours came. 40 minutes from ordering to service.

One main and one starter arrived first, some time later another main and starter.

The food generally lacked flavour, but was cooked well and there was plenty to eat. Stay away from the sides, soggy fries and the nibbles were overcooked. Out of the two mains, the Chicken Parm was the worst, just tasted bland and boring.

Unfortunately the dessert service was more of the same, it took another 20 minutes for that to arrive.

All in all, I wish my workmate Jeff had have warned me before I got the First Table booking here. We won't be back.

The food was amazing but I was disappointed to have to leave without dessert as I was so full from the entree and only half my main. Definitely recommend and would happily return.

Great burgers, good advice from the staff about burger size. Steak was the biggest steak I have seen, my husband couldn't finish it. Waffles a bit average, think they should stick to the burgers and sides, they were great.
