Great atmosphere and comfortable setting in gorgeous Sofitel hotel. The south African waiter was friendly and helpful. The entree was amazing with tasty cheeses, salami and much more. The mains were tasty as well. We will definitely come back next time we are in Queenstown.

We had an amazing last dinner at Left Bank. The staff were lovely and knowledgeable, and the food was good. Could have been a little hotter and when cutting the tenderloin at the table it needs to be presented better (nicer chopping board and sharp knife.) maybe ask the chef to come and do it with his knife since it’s the speciality dish? The Onion Soup was on point.

First time we have dined using First Table and at Left Bank Bistro and we were not disappointed. We were greeted with friendliness and professionalism. The waitresses understood the menu and gave excellent advice. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals that were flavorsome both the duck and lamb were tender. Couldn't decide on desserts we had the crepes and creme boule. The complimentary breads and dips went down a treat too. Will be back next time we visit Queenstown. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

I tried La Raclete and it was simply delicious and well presented! Also desserts... Crepê Suzette with tasty mango ice cream and cremè brûlée that we can see the real vanilla on that!

And the restaurant is really charming with the candles and decoration!

I definitely recommend the place!!!

Lovely French food in a gorgeous dining room. The chateaubriand for two was exceptional & my son (a creme brûlée aficionado) declared the passionfruit brûlée delicious. The service was faultless as always & we will definitely be back to sample more French hospitality & ambience!

Something perfect, just to remind me how fantastic this city is ! I' m from France, and i have to admit, if there' s one thing that i miss, it' s the food !! Cheese, wine, and so much more that it would be too long to list it.. What a great surprise, when, a few weeks ago, i heard that the "Raclette", a traditional French winter dish, as famous as a Fondue or a Tartiflette, usually eaten in the mountains (Alps, ski resorts) is coming in town ! Served on a large wooden board, you can find all of the ingredients for a successful meal : charcuterie (delicious thin slices of cold meat) and potatoes, covered by melting cheese, that the amazing team on the floor pours just in front of you, at the table.. It is as good for your diet as a greasy Burger, but .. You can even find salad on your board, just in case you' re feeling guilty.. You can ask for more cheese if you need to, for an little extra of $6.. I advice everyone who hasn' t try this dish yet to run over there and do it ! you won' t regret it ! it is of course not dairy free, or vegetarian..

Do you want dream the time of a dinner ? You are at the good place ! The French food is amazing, if you never tried the Raclette, you have to.
Can you imagine the mix of potatoes and hot French cheese with its assorted cold meat ?
The Menu come from differents parts of France, so you can travel between a lot flavor.
Waiters and Waitress are French people, so you will discover the french manieres and no worries they are fluent in English.
Plus, This place will plunge you into a warm atmosphere with the relaxing music and the decoration.
You will feel like at home but with the French luxury touch at an accessible cost.
Don't wait anymore and come try this fabulous restaurant.
For my part, I will come back soon !

We booked a table there because I knew there was french food. I took the « raclette », typical french meal that you cannot find anywhere in New Zealand! It was amazing, very tasty, enough quantity, I had 2 or 3 times more cheese ! I really enjoyed it! I will be back before I leave Queenstown, and the service was excellent , we was served by Louise and a kiwi girl(I don’t remember her name, sorry), they was very professional and gentle. I recommend 200% .

First experience with first table. The food was absolutely stunning. We got the steak for 2 people which included mushrooms, fries, garlic butter, peppercorn sauce, and veggies. It was absolutely delicious. Highly, highly recommend. We had a small issue with our drinks and I would like to point out our waitress Louise who was extremely understanding and accommodating. She was one of the best parts of the experience. Having a staff member like this is huge for your business. Well done. We will definitely return.

I tried to pick something that both I and my partner would enjoy. Being backpackers we always looks for a bargain. I didn’t know I’d find a gem. If I wasn’t backpacking I’d pay the normal price for the food here. The steak was great and the chips were probably the best chips I’d ever had (if you like fergburger chips these are far better). I was full up by the time we left and couldn’t taste a dessert because of being full; but with First Table, this made for one of our classier nights whilst in New Zealand.
