We as a whole were extremely blessed and happy with our entire experience at the Atrium Restaurant.The booking and contact with the Manager followed by the service we had was totally outstanding.The service was most definitely with a smile and I felt like we were the most important customers ever.Every one of my guest were extremely happy with our evening from start to finish.The starter looked like a main meal,our mains were as awesome,and desert just topped our evening off,to where we were unsure which was our favourite dish.I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone,and I DEFINITELY would love to go again.We had such a lovely evening.Thank you so much.I would like to extend a special thanks to Peter of Rydges Hotel Rotorua for his assistant and care for us.Excellent Restaurant.J.B.

Food was good and the wait staff were very attentive. Overall had a lovely night but did find the lighting very low/dim towards the end but maybe because it was a overcast night. Would definitely go back again :)

Our first First Table experience and we were delighted, as would have been beyond our budget otherwise. Lovely ambience, tables not too close to each other, music pleasantly unobtrusive. Food served with eye appeal and good taste. Would go again :)

Excellent customer service. Ribeye and lamb cooked to perfection.

- dined at Atrium Restaurant on

Huge restaurant space all to ourselves for ages. Staff very attentive and the food was great. My lamb cutlets were cooked to perfection as was my husbands steak. The vegies were nicely presented as well. We each had a dessert and no complaints there either. Overall give the experience a 10/10 and would love to return.

We decided to go after being recommended First Table, we were not disappointed. The lovely young man that looked after us could not have been more professional and accommodating. He went the extra mile and even presented our daughter with a little surprise cake when he found out that it was her birthday. The food was excellent and good portion sizes. Definately recommend First Table and Atrium Restaurant.

The food here was fantastic. Steak cooked to perfection, Seafood Chowder was delicious too.
My children had the Club Sandwich with fries and a Chicken Pizza, again both dishes were exceptional and my children loved them.
We had Wedges to share too.
The Banoffee pie for dessert was great.
All meals were very large.
The staff were very attentive and they regularly returned to our table to check how we were going with the meal, to see if they could get anything else for us and to top up our water.
I wouldn't hesitate to both return here and to recommend to family and friends.

Loved our dinner at the Atrium. Have dined there a few times over the years as a hotel guest but this was by far my best experience. I ordered the salmon & prawn special and it was just perfect. Everything so well cooked. My husband also thoroughly enjoyed his steak meal. Wine selection was extensive with some good options available. We finished with a cheese platter which was just “ok” compared to the main course. Service was exceptional.

We had such a great dining experience at the Atrium. The service was awesome and the food was faultless! The lamb rack was smokey, delicious and cooked to absolute perfection! It's a real treat for us to go out for dinner without the kids and everything was spot on....thank you!

The food was absolutely delicious, we had two steaks, one twice the size of the other, and they both came out at the same time, piping hot and perfectly medium rare! The garlic bread was tasty and a good size to share and the squid was delicious and tender with a generous portion of salad. One of our drinks took a bit longer than it should have and when it came time to pay they voluntarily removed it from the bill! Great friendly staff, attentive but not too much so. Wish I had had room left for dessert!

Although we were a bit surprised to see an unshielded salad bar in these days of Covid-19, we were the first diners and the staff were just finishing putting the salads out when we arrived. The salads were tasty, fresh and varied and could easily serve as a complete meal but we chose to add a protein option too. The eye filet steaks were excellent and the salmon very nice too. The mango panacotta was so good that I ate the whole thing, despite feeling too full. Overall, a very nice meal.

First time at the Atrium and it was lovely. Great space and the food and service was superb.

- dined at Atrium Restaurant on

Food was nice, however odd setout, buffet for salads only and then $20 for a protein of your choice, it was nice that the kids dined for free with any adult ordering a protein. However started eating salads and full from that before getting proteins. No soups available which is a shame. Service was ok, you kinda feel you dont get treated the same when you have first table but all in all it was ok, it fed our family.

Well looked after in the Mezz bar, but we were the only ones there’s. Nice spot overlooking the main dining area.
Good starters mussels and prawns. Variety of mains including salmon, steak special and lamb cutlets. Food generally well served and plentiful although did get the impression that some of the food items were “pre packaged food”.
Overall though a pleasant first table experience.

First of all, loved the setting of the restaurant. The service was great, very friendly and attentive staff. Absolutely loved the seafood chowder, hit of the night for us it was delicious. My partner however didn’t enjoy his main so much, I think it was brisket and came out quiet cold. But my kid enjoyed the pizza and fries. Will visit again when in town

My girls and I had a lovely dinner out. Food was delicious. Was lacking with meal options for kids, and the menu is a lot different from the sample menu on first table, so that needs to be updated (was looking forward to the steak and duck fat potatoes that are no longer on the menu). However, I had the lamb, and it was amazing. So tender and the kumura was roasted to perfection.

Four of us each had a great meal, with everything cooked well & very tasty. The service was friendly & attentive. There was a slight hitch with the First Table discount due to their new system, but it was all worked out. Will definitely be going back.

Nice menu and nice food. Restaurant was clean and tidy but it was dark (not enough lights). Staff were nice but very very slow and forgot to ask our orders or bring correct drinks. Took over 30mins for a cocktail which we then just asked for a refund. Unsure if we woukd go back.
