There were 4 of us and we all had different food and all really enjoyed it! Good atmosphere and nice staff :)
We were there for lunch so the restaurant was fairly quiet but is has a good atmosphere and the waiters were all very attentive and helpful.
We would definitely go here again and feel confident recommending the restaurant to others as well :)

Total confusion about table booking. Food mediocre and minimal except lamb shoulder. Which had to be sent back as was large lump of meat not even cut up or provided with cutting knife. Kumara beignets were tasty but sparse main , more entree, chowder tasty but fillers of huge mussels still with tough tongues not removed.
Overpriced for value

We had a nice time at the Grille, it is a beautiful restaurant in perfect location. Maybe a little too posh for our liking. We liked our waiter Daniel who was relaxed, funny and professional. The food looked amazing but we did find it a bit bland. The wine was perfect.

The service was very good, the view from the table was great. The food was really amazing. My husband and I shared a lamb dish with veges which was just excellent. To be honest, this was the best dish I had for years.

We had dinner for 4 last Tuesday and our experience quite dissapointed. The moment we first walked in we did not feel welcome by one of the staff at the counter. Not even a smile at all, maybe he got a hard day at work but hey, it was not our fault right? During the service, other staffs were friendly enough but once again, we got waited for so long to get our mains cleared to have dessert menu. We noticed the table next to us even had their desserts already although they arrived after and our empty mains were still on the table. There were 4 staffs standing at the counter and I tried eye contact with them to get attention many times as It would be rude if I waved my hands or calling them from distance but non of them cared. We waited more than 10mins and the restaurant was not busy at all. I expected with the restaurant level it is definitely a huge room for service improvement. The food, however, was spotted on, delicious and beautifully plated.

A great restaurant to take visitors, lovely views of the lake and people watching. Seafood chowder was delicious, packed with seafood, burgers are huge but the platter is my favourite. We'll be back.

Gorgeous evening thank you! The pork belly was divine & the crispy potatoes were so yum! The only teeny criticism is it all felt a little rushed. Definitely be back tho!

Fine dining experience at a reasonable price. We had a very helpful and knowledgeable waiter who steered us into fine local produce. We enjoyed a very good Argentinian Malbec. We ate early through First Table and were very happy with the food, the service and the price.

The overall experience is good. Ordered two mains, the seafood chowder is quite tasty while the eye fillet is just average. Love the oysters! But the house breads are a little disappointing.

Service is premium at Eichardt! The waiters take care that everything is perfect, and it is!
Food is good, we had cured salmon as entrée and mussels as main. More mussels wouldn't be a bad thing, but quantity is good already.
I'll definitely come back.

Could not have asked for better service or quality of food. My husband had one of the signature cocktails which he said was exceptional (I can’t stomach them but my hot water and lemon was served without even an eyebrow raise which is unusual so top points right there!)
We had the whitebait (8/10) and the savoury churros (9.8/10) for entree.
For mains we had the cut of day (Wagyu Scotch) 10/10 and Venison Wellington (8/10) with crispy twice-fried potato’s (10/10)
No dessert unfortunately as our 8 month old was making it known he was ready to go but it looked incredible. They supplied him with a padded high chair and a water view but it just wasn’t enough.
Service was impeccable - friendly without losing their professionalism. Wouldn’t think twice about booking our next special occasion there. Thank you

We were lucky to sit in the front window of the restaurant on a sunny Queenstown evening. We had the lamb shoulder and it was delicious! The staff were all very helpful with the menu items and very accommodating. The only criticism would be is that the drinks are quite expensive in comparison to other restaurants in the area but that's only a minor flaw. Everything else was excellent!

Lunch at The Grille never disappoints & today was no exception! We ordered the Lamb platter to share along with roasted veges & crispy potatoes & everything was delectable. A glass of bubbly each to wash down our lunch (filled to the brim I might add!). Finished off with the suitably wintry apple doughnut pie plus lemon thyme & banoffee ice cream on the side. Aside from the mouth watering food the service was, as always, impeccable. Thank you once again Grille team for a fabulous dining experience!

We were a table of four. We are locals and feel like this place is getting better and better.
We could not fault food or service.
Just a great night.
Fabulous table with a view out to the bay.
Pork belly and catch of the day a stand out. Dessert line up so yummy.
We will be back, to show off to more friends visiting from out of town.
See you soon.

Good food, great views. A warm welcome from the staff on arrival, we were shown to our table. The view over Lake Wakatipu was great. We had house breads with olive oil and butter to start followed by venison Wellington for me and lamb rump for my partner. Both of the mains were pretty good fayre. The venison was cooked perfectly. The lamb was spot on. Supported by side dishes of crusty potatoes and roasted vegetables the meal was pretty darn good. Would we go again? Yes I think we would. Food was a little on the high side price wise and first table certainly helps out there but we would be OK paying full price as the food deserved that.
When in QT don't walk by.
