Sorry guys but was pretty disappointed with the food!
Bread from breads and oil was very basic - could have been a Pak n Save loaf
Pork belly was only fat - and slimy, there was about half a mm of meat on it. We sent this back. We didnt get charged for this which was great.
The Angus T bone, they didnt actually have any so it was boneless which was fine, but i asked for medium rare and was still mooing on the inside. Didnt want to send 2 dishes back though so we kept it and ate as much as we could.
To their credit the seafood chowder was very good.
Waiter was also very lovely.

A most enjoyable dining experience!
We were welcomed on arrival, and the service throughout was excellent.
We had booked for two, and when our two friends wished to join us, it wasn't a problem.
The presentation of the food was perfect, and tasted equally.
We loved sitting at the front window looking out at Queenstown lakefront.

Very impressive restaurant, looking straight out to the lake, great place to sit with a wine and watch the world go by. Oysters were wonderful as was the Caesar salad, only complaint was it didn't have anchovies. Excellent friendly service.

We had the best seafood chowder and we would highly recommend that to anybody who enjoys a good chowder. The salmon dish with the soft roti is another dish that is so sumptuous. The soft roti is crisp and so well made and together with the salmon. Its absolutely delicious. I would definitely visit the restaurant again. This must be one of the best meals we had during our holiday at queenstown. Thanks to first table for the selection of restaurant

Absolutely loved our experience, had 3 courses and each of them were delicious. We had a 4.5 year old with us and the items on kids menu were also good.
I also really appreciated the staff member talking with other guests who were perhaps not behaving as you would expect for a restaurant and ensuring the other guests’ experience was memorable in a positive way. Thank you.

The lakeside restaurant environment is very beautiful, tastes good, personally feel too raw, feel not very good, other dishes are good, recommend their steak, really tender, seafood soup is also featured I think it's best to eat.

Food was great, its definitely an expensive experience but it makes up for it in quality. I ordered the pork belly and the duck breast for entree and it was both the best pork and duck I've ever had. We also ordered a bunch of sides and they were delicious as well. Such as the crispy potatoes and the fries.

Definitely would recommend for special occasions!

This is a really impressive restaurant. Wonderful views of the lake, good service and really tasty food. I recommend the lamb platter, lots of really tasty bits and the slow cooked lamb was delicious. A great place to take visitors.

We went to The Grille for the first time and had the legendary Eichardt's Seafood Chowder for lunch and it was delicious as expected! The service was good and we will probably come back for it. Definitely recommend it!

Everything was great! Steak and chowder are the most impressive food in New Zealand. Special thanks to Korean waitress, Kim. She has fully served us with kindness. The wine she recommended was awesome, so my wife is so impressed. Appreciate your food and service. So great!!!!! :)

Dining with first table means you get to be the first customer means you’d always get the best seat haha. (Not guaranteed but I’ve been sitting at the tables with the nice views everytime I dine with first table) This time me and my boyfriend sat at one of the window side tables and boy, were the views breathtaking. We were dining exquisite food with exquisite views, absolutely a 10/10 review for The Grille and would definitely come back again :D

The style is Fine Dining, elegant and restrained rather than innovative. All the food was delicious from Stewart Island Smoked Salmon through to Dark Chocolate Tart. It was a very windy evening so we were pleased to shelter behind the huge plate-glass windows and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake from indoors.

We came with a group of 4 and had lunch. The service was pretty good and gave us all the informations we needed. We all tried different things and loved it. It's been the second time for me at The Grill and I would always come back. Great food and good service, highly recommended .

right from the moment that we stepped through the doors of this restaurant we were treated so well by our waiter. The food was all to die for! We all day entrees, being seafood chowder, duck.salmon and venison. Everything was cooked to perfection. Mains we could also not fault- pork belly,Caesar salad and lamb rump. The service has to be raves about that we received from a French gentleman. Very good and so much so that we had to tip him. Something that we have not done in NZ for years. A must visit as location is right on the waterfront in a modern decorated restored old building. We were treated with a table at the front of the restaurant!

The Grille by Eichardt's was simply amazing, our waitress was friendly and accommodating and even shared with us her personal favourites on the menu and encouraged us to try several entrees which lived up to their recommendations, the view by the window was spot on. The food was awesome, there was nothing here that I could fault them on and i'd be happy to do it all again and pay full price!!
