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.

Great meal at the Bay Plaza Hotel restaurant last night. Catered well for our vegetarian family member and the portion sizes were generous. The wait staff were attentive and friendly. The best part is the price with the first table deal, I won't be renewing my loyalty dining card this year.

Food was lovely - very good garlic bread for how cheap it was! I had the steak and apple pie for desert, my partner had the chicken and Asian slaw sub, with chocolate donut sundae. The steak was beautiful, all portions were huge. The sub was a little disappointing but the Kumara fries made up for it. Service was adequate - a little red wine was spilled on the table but not cleaned up (we had to use our service tree). Atmosphere was very quiet but lovely.

What a great experience - From the Tomato Soup starter to the Fish and Chips or Chicken Salad they were fantastic and topped off with two amazing deserts. The staff were helpful and attentive but were not always in your face just caring. happy to recommend and we'll definitely be back.

The restaurant is on the first floor of the hotel. We had managed to get a free park right outside! We sat by the window overlooking the street, plent of action down there but the traffic noise was almost inaudible from the restaurant.
We started with cocktails and these were well made. (Hubby is a bit of a connoisseur of Long Island Iced Teas. He said it was good)
We ordered entrees, he had garlic bread, i had an Asian salad which filled the whole plate and had a delicious ginger and lime dressing.
Our main courses were chicken breast and pan fried fish. These were delicious. The flavours and textures of the chicken dish were sublime.
Portion sizes were generous. Our only gripe would be that the fries my husband ordered appeared to have come from the freezer. (Crinkle cut). We would expect homemade fries at a restaurant of this calibre.
We skipped dessert as it was a cold night but there were no hot desserts on offer. The coffee was good.
Very friendly staff, good ambience, quick service, tasty food. Recommended.

Its was our first date night in Wgtn since moving back 2 months ago. Weve used First Table in Akld but our first time in Wgtn and the Bay Plaza was a great choice.

We chose them because of the previous reviews on your website and werent disappointed.

We had a lovely table by the window and our waiters Elyssa (sorry if spelt wrong) and Page were both very accomodating and their service was great.
The food was also excellent, we started with spicy Tomato Soup and Lamb meatball/greek salad entree, I had the pork dish and my husband the lamb curry for main followed by cheesecake and brownie to finish. Each course was beautifully cooked and tasty. The proportion sizes were generous.
We would highly recommend Bay Plaza for dinner and definitely be coming back.
Thanks for a great evening.

The food was perfect! I had the chicken which was moist and amazing! My partner had the fish which she thoroughly enjoyed!
I’m a kumara fanatic and got a bowl of chips Andy can say they were the best kumara chips I’ve ever had!
Although the starters and mains had filled us up we just had to give the desserts a go! They were also amazing and were well sized.
The service was the best part of the night, the young man and woman were amazing! Very attentive to detail and always around when needed!
Highly recommend!

We use first table often, for the hotel restaurants we find that they can be quite average normally or even less then average. This was not the case with Bay Plaza Hotel, the food was above average the fish meal is great, the pork meal is nutritious and the churros and peanut brownie deserts are great, over all a great experience.

The staff were lovey and the service was great too. The steaks should of been medium rare but were a little over. My friends pork loin was tasty but had a whacking bone in it and she couldn't get to the meat, we were expecting loin off the bone, my fish and chips was good. It was nice and clean and as said staff were lovely. I felt the tables felt a bit like a canteen and just big enough

From stater to dessert the look and taste of the food was fabulous! I was in need of something that was fresh, wholesome and real!
Deliciously crisp Greek salad, followed by the most devine Gurnard fish dish I have ever had!
I don’t normally have desserts but opted to the cheesecake which finished the meal off nicely.

This was a meal I will remember for a long time and will most definitely return next time I’m in Wellington. Compliments to the Chef!

We had a lovely time at the Bay Plaza Hotel restaurant. I just rang a few hours earlier to set up a surprise dessert for dad’s birthday and they did not disappoint. The staff were always on hand to see to our needs. The food was yum! Even my 7 year old daughter thought so too. Overall, an awesome dining experience. Will definitely dine here again.
