We visited Lombardi not knowing what to expect. The restaurant is located in a five star hotel and sometimes hotel food can be pretty bland. Not so at Lombardi. We chose steaks. The rule is you choose a sauce and a side dish with you steak so we selected different sauces and different side dishes which we shared (the side dishes, not the sauces). The meal was delicious. We also had wonderful desserts. Mention must be made of our wonderful waitress, Aarui, who could not have been more friendly or professional.

My partner and I had such a good time in the Lombard. I got the pork Belly as an entree what in my opinion was the best dish of the night. For the main the Ribeye was as good as expected, the dessert the chocolate mousse earned five stars on presentational and taste. Nice atmosphere and friendly staffs. There is a place that I wish come back.

THE BEST!! Honestly the best dining experience I have had in a very long time! Food is Michelin ⭐️⭐️, view, service, wine! We went back for lunch. Seafood platter, lamb rack & lasagna outstanding!

We've lived in Queenstown for over two years but have never dined at Lombardi. First Table is always a great opportunity to try somewhere new and I'm very glad that we did. The whole experience from start to finish was seamless and enjoyable. The staff took my jacket upon arrival and showed us to a great table by the window with amazing views of the lake. The food was exceptional and the service continued to be excellent. The staff were attentive and helpful without being overbearing. All of the food was delicious, my husband had the woodfired lasagne and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will most definitely be back to dine here. Please pass this feedback on to your restaurant staff, they do an excellent job.

If I could leave a 5+ for service I would. As a QT local, we take all of our visiting guests to Lombardi and every time we dine here, we're not disappointed. The view, food and service are always top-notch. Whoever is managing the staff should be congratulated - we've never had the same wait staff but every time we're just blown away by the service.

We had a very comfortable moment celebrating my wife’s birthday, having a delicious breakfast with stunning view and very very friendly service. Highly recommend the full buffet with barista coffee, multiple choices of juices, fruit, breads, muffins, cooked food and all we wanted.

Delicious food particularly the venison. The mousse dessert is rich and delicious. Our waiter was friendly helpful in choosing our dishes and informative of the meals. The views from the restaurant are amazing.

We enjoyed a super family breakfast with a great view of the lake. I enjoyed the farmer's rosti with poached eggs and bacon. It was both healthy and tasty. Some of the others in our party opted for the buffet which offered lots of options including good pastries and muffins. Our waitress, Kim, could not have been more helpful. This was a great dining experience and a very nice way to start the day.

We’ve eaten at Lombardi numerous times now (both as first table and regular diners) and I think it just gets better and better! Service is always high, with friendly, attentive staff, and the food is amazing - beautifully presented, and very tasty! We also love it as the menu is nearly all gluten free or able to make it so, and staff seem to know their stuff really well. My favourite place to eat in Queenstown :)

We had one more great experience at Lombardi, Suzanne made our night a great experience with her outstanding service, food is getting better every single time and I have to say always has been delicious, you have to try the desserts, the have changed the dessert menu, I tried 3 different ones( lemon meringue, gold rush, chocolate brownie), OMG, absolutely delicious all 3. Highly recommended

Food was exceptional and the view was amazing. The waitress was very attentive to our needs. Definitely a 5 star restaurant.

The experience from the beginning was smooth & relaxing, we were ushered into the restaurant with a smile and seated next to the window.

We were lucky enough to get there just in time for the Aprés ski happy hour drinks and my fíance got the jakes giant peach cocktail which was delicious.
The food was exceptional, the signature dish - the venison was cooked perfectly with balanced flavours, and the accompanying green beans wrapped in pancetta were on another level. The Southland beef was delicious, an amazing jus and great selection of vegetables that really complimented the meat.
We were treated to fast & efficient service throughout by attentive but not over the top staff.

The ambiance was cosy and the bathrooms imacculate which was just what we needed after a day up the mountain and to top it all off a stunning view of lake Wakatipu and the surrounding snow covered mountains.

We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves great food and wants fantastic service to go with it.

Outstanding experience. We started with pre dinner drinks which happened to coincide with Happy Hour 5-7. The bar has a lovely mountain resort feel. We moved to our dining table at 6. The service and food couldn’t be faulted. We started with oysters and scallops - both delicious! Happy hour extended to the restaurant too making it easy to pair a merlot with my deco IOU’s signature venison. The rest of our table enjoyed the market day fish - tuna and the best salmon my husband claims to have ever eaten!! Thanks First table and Lombardi

It is recommended by my friend who has been there for many times. very nice lake view from the dinning place! Ordered pork belly, Lombardi wood fired pizza and lasagne , eye fillet, baby carrots, etc. All of them are very delicious, and waitress is very nice and helpful. Definitely will go there again!

- dined at Lombardi on

The food was delicious and the service top notch. The view and ambiance of the restaurant was also fantastic. We were definitely the first table at the time of seating but it filled up fast. The venison signature meal was probably one of the best I've had to date so highly recommend that dish to others!

- dined at Lombardi on

Had an incredible dinner at Lombardi. We were seated right by the windows and had an excellent view, no being put away in the back of the restaurant to fill spare tables. Seafood platter starter was AMAZING as was the main where we paired our choices of meat, sauce, and sides. Our waitress, Aarai was great and we loved chatting to her.

Awesome food ! The lasagne and polenta fries are amazing , wouldn't hesitate to come back

- dined at Lombardi on

Fantastic food and service - some of the best we've had in NZ! We were seated next to the windows with an amazing view of the lake, and enjoyed happy hour drinks to begin with - cocktails were fab.
We were a table of 4 and everyone's dish looked so good we couldn't resist trying each other's... For entrees we had cured venison loin which was a great summer dish, twice cooked pork belly which everyone loved, and the scallops which were cooked to perfection.
For mains, I had the signature venison which was beautiful. My husband's wood fired lasagne was very moreish and delicious. Rest of the party had monk fish, venison and a few sides and everyone was very happy.
The trio of apple desserts included a calvados brulee which was the nicest creme brulee I've ever had - wish i could have more and it was a dish to itself!
Wine selection was good with many from the local wineries. Service was excellent and staff were attentive and friendly. Had a fantastic evening and would definitely visit again!

Lombardi is in a class of its own. The service was wonderful and the meal was outstanding..And tge views of the lake were some of the best in Queenstown. Thankyou First Table ...we will definitely go there another time.

- dined at Lombardi on

We were seated on window side so we had a wonderful view of the lake & mountains. Service is fast. My family had full breakfast buffet while I ordered their Paleo bfast. The breakfast food was okay, nothing special. I loved avocados but when kale was mixed, it added a bitter taste in the avocado mash, which I didn’t liked. It was convenient that we can (valet) park our car at the hotel for free. Overall, we had a good time at Lombardi.

We were seated at a lovely table by the window with a great view of the lake. The atmosphere is great and service was attentive. Highlight was the scallop and octopus entree - seafood was cooked very well.

We had a bit of a misunderstanding regarding the fish of the day - we were told it was sole, but when it came out it turned out to be swordfish. The waitstaff were great in replacing the dish with something else and did not charge me for either of my mains.

Convenient parking on site which we didn't know about but do now for next time. Nice bar in a separate part of the restaurant. Happy hour between 5-7.
