Unbelievably good service - Ana was super-attentive, so very nice, and very friendly. Really impressed with everything. The meals were sublime, and our 10th wedding anniversary was certainly something special to remember!!

It hadnt occured to me to visit a hotel just for the restaurant until Restaurant in Alma with First Table.
The restaurant is spacious and modern.
Our first impression of service was a blonde worker being rude to us when we figuring out who to talk to to be seated (there is a bar there with another counter hidden behind a wall we didnt know was there)
Lucky for us we had a newbie waitress for our table and she was bubbly and friendly.

The newbie waitress we had was smiley and friendly - the great service mark was purely from her.
The reviews said the food was absolutely amazing and we weren't disappointed!
Melt in your mouth flavor in every bite.

What a lovely evening! One of our best dining out experiences. The food was the highlight! Everything was creative and cooked to perfection! Pork belly was incredible! Hubby had the steak which was melting in his mouth... then the brulee for dessert, we finished everything... no faults here!

One of my colleagues at work had told me that both the service and the food were better than a restaurant we had gone to.
So we went with rather high expectations! We were in no way disappointed. The staff at Restaurant on Alma were very friendly and professional and throughout the meal they came by and asked if everything was alright.
I have to say that the food was exceptionally delicious and we could not fault a thing. At the end of the meal a couple of the staff praised First Table saying what a great idea it was. We certainly agree.
We will definitely return to Restaurant on Alma and bring friends with us.

This was our first time eating here and there were so many things that we were impressed by. We loved the menu selection and the real connection we felt with the kai. We appreciated the bilingualism and the culture reflected n the menu. Our starters and mains were stunning and the ika mata was melt n your mouth delicious!! but my most fav dish had to be the Asian salad!? yes!! that was soo delicious to me that my eyefillet, although yummy too, had to take the bak seat! lol U hav to go whanau n try urself u wont regret it!! this is my new fav eatery!!! Yum!!

I had the Lamb rump, which was an amazing pick, it blew me away! Could do with some more vegetables..
My husband had the salmon which was a bit bland.
The mains took a while to come out and drinks were slow to the table. But our waitress was very lovely. Will be back

Fantastic service and great food I would highly recommend and I can't wait to go back. However I would not order the assorted Breads with dips again. They very nice but the amount of dips doesn't even cover half the amount of bread. Then you are just left with bread and nothing to put on it.

Attractive modern restaurant with mediocre hotel food.
The raw ika entre was not very fresh. All other food was just okay. Lots of room for improvement.
Service was lousy. Need to flag down the waitress if you need something.

We had dinner at Alma and the started with entrees that were very nice, especially the “Ika Mata” with Māori bread. The mains arrived and one of our diners ordered the Hereford Sirloin Steak. It was suppose to be medium rare and was on the rare side which was very disappointing. Dessert was average with the brulee’ having a very hard toffee shell. Average dinner.

Wow! What a wonderful way to spend an evening. We had 3 birthdays being celebrated over the last 10 days and chose to go somewhere different and we were not disappointed. The meals were suburb, steak cooked to perfection, and a mix of meals ordered from the menu- including vegetarian and gluten free. I appreciated that this restaurant provides a healthy choice option.
Sadly no room for dessert. Will definitely be back again. Service was awesome.
Very happy customers, thank you Restaurant on Alma.

We decided to check out Restaurant on Alma for our wedding anniversay. Would highly recommend the pork belly. Staff were attentive, food was excellent. The kids corner is a great idea, it certainly kept my child entertained during the short wait for the food to come out. 10/10
