A hidden gem! Pretty quiet when we were there, server was very professional and the food was great, quite large portions so very good value.

Yum Yum and more Yum!!!!
We dined as a table of 4 and the food was delicious, Lamb shank cooked to perfection with meat falling off the bone and lovely pea and feta salad with creamy mash to go with it, serving size was generous too! Fish of the day was perfectly cooked and so fresh, beautifully presented with saffron butter although needed a little bit more seasoning, easily done with a sprinkle of salt from the table.
We all tried a different desert and the chocolate brownie won hands down with its salted caramel sauce and Ice-Cream.
Agree with other reviews in that this place is underrated and we will definitely be returning for fresh, quality beautifully presented food with attentive staff. Thank you First Table and thank you Bay Plaza Hotel, thoroughly enjoyed my birthday dinner and the wine of the month too a cute 200ml bottle of Italian Prosecco for only $10!

The Bay Plaza delivered an outstanding meal. My snapper was divine and melted in the mouth, and everyone enjoyed their tasteful dishes so carefully prepared. The wine list was well priced and the service was friendly and charming. We will definitely be back! So glad to have experienced the Bay Plaza Hotel Restaurant and delighted it has joined First Table. Thank you.

We came to Wellington for a birthday weekend away and stayed at Bay Plaza so was a bonus to find out that their restaurant was on first table. Was a pleasant experience with polite and helpful staff. We had a steak meal and a lamb shank meal. Both meals were enjoyable. Took a apple pie dessert back to the room for later.

A very pleasant dinner out at the Bay Plaza.
Beautiful meal and wine so great all round.
A good portion size too, so didn't go home, hungry.

Maybe the lights could have been dimmed a wee bit during dinner to create a bit more intimate experience, but overall great.
well done team, would definitely recommend and we will head back sometime.

This was our second visit to the Bay Plaza Restaurant and I would highly recommend it. The whole experience was enjoyable. Staff were attentive, but not overly so and even though we were not staying in the hotel, we were made to feel very welcome by all.
The food was amazing - I had chicken breast and my friend had the fish, both with potato gratin and it was wonderful. The plates were not piled high, which I was happy with and the flavours were wonderful.
We both finished with an Irish coffee and could have happily sat there all night watching the world go by in Wellington, and I'm sure the staff wouldn't have minded at all.
We will be returning another night!

Food was alright, I ordered glass of red vine- vin was warmer then room temperature. All restaurant looks like it needs good reconstruction. Server was lovely

Excellent food and service - odd location as expected harbour views as noted on the menus, turns out they are only the rooms that have views - strange choice......could not fault food or service, was great!

- dined at Bay Plaza Hotel Restaurant on

Food was great . Atmosphere ok . Maybe some background music would have helped as we could hear just about every conversation in the restaurant as if we were part of it .

Had a lovely family dinner. Food was delicious and servings were very generous. I had ravioli, hubby had lamb curry and my girls had fish and chips and chicken salad. For dessert I had apple pie with gingernut ice cream and rhubarb - amazing! And my teenagers had donuts and chocolate torte. Service was great - will def go back soon.

Decided to go to this restaurant after reading the great reviews. Had dinner on Sunday. For starters we had the Kumara chips & garlic bread they were fantastic!! The restaurant wasn’t busy when we arrived I felt we did wait a while for our food. For mains we ordered the steak, fish & the lamb shank. The lamb shank was our favourite the meat was melt in your mouth worked really well with the jus & greens with mash

This was our second visit here using First Table. At weekends the booking time is 645pm which suited us. The staff members are pleasant, the food is delicious, the service is prompt. Best of all, it is quiet, even on a Saturday night. The room is large and attractive, there were only two other tables in use, so we were able to have a conversation without any difficulty. Thankfully the TV was in a separate area, far enough away to not be a distraction. ( the Rugby was on, and the Hurricanes won.) Recommended.
