Hotel restaurants can be a bit hit and miss. They tend to be at the upper end of the price scale without the food and/or service justifying the cost. The prices at Bay Plaza were refreshingly moderate and the food was excellent along with being a good portion size. Wine list was pretty good - they were out of the wine I ordered but suggested a replacement that really hit the spot.

We had a lovely evening. Good food and excellent service, without being intrusive. We started with crispy garlic bread and it was lovely. The fish of the day was Gurnard and it was fresh and cooked perfectly. The chicken was also tastefully done and presented.

Awesome food and excellent service even though they forgot one of the mains - was not an issue and gave us free drinks to apologise for the error/wait, but this turned up within a few minutes. Food was tasty and filling and despite being busy with a large group, food came out in a timely manner.

My boyfriend and I live up the street from Bay Plaza Hotel so walk past at least 4 times a day. I was searching on First Table for the perfect date night option and so of course Bay Plaza Hotel, with its close proximity to our house(and the city center) and its glorious sunny restaurant, was my first choice. The food was absolutely delicious and came in very generous portions. The staff were friendly and attentive and even let us swap out vanilla ice cream for hokey pokey! My favourite! My boyfriend reckons the Bay Plaza Hotel will be our new regular, and I agree! This was both of our first time using First Table and I can now say we are hooked. Thank you Bay Plaza Hotel for a delightful night out.

Food was excellent. We shared the meals we ordered as a family, and so we were able to taste each of our orders. The chicken was soft and moist; the lamb was juicy and cooked well; the steak was excellent. The service was fantastic too. Can't find any fault! It was our first time to dine here, and we were delighted with the dinner we had at the hotel!

We booked first table at Bay Plaza for a birthday celebration. It was a very pleasant experience from the starters to the desserts. All of us enjoyed the dishes we ordered ( fish, braised lamb, steak ) as it was beautifully prepared and presented. The service was great without being overpowering and the food arrived quite quickly. There is also free car parking available which really helps in Wellington ! Wonderful place and will definitely go again.

Enjoyed our dinner last night. Our food was beautifully cooked. We had a slight problem but the staff went over and beyond to cater to our needs so we were very impressed by the service. They even went out of their way to track us down and call us to let us know we had left an item behind. Friendly service and great food

A very special occasion for partner and I celebrating our 20th year anniversary where the 50% off all food was an added bonus to a beautiful relaxed and delightful dinner. Thank you First Table and Thank you Bay Plaza Restaurant and Bar.

We were in Wellington for the weekend and decided to have an early meal at Bay Plaza, prior to watching the All Blacks test match. We were greeted warmly by a young woman and shown to a table by the window. My Lamb Shank was "melt in the mouth" delicious and there was a generous serving of vegetables with the meal. My husband had perfectly cooked Sirloin Steak and again a generous serving of vegetables. We shouldn't have but we had Apple and Rhubarb Crumble and Banoffee Sundae for dessert, both absolutely delicious. Our young waiter was very polite and charming, I thoroughly recommend Bay Plaza Hotel Restaurant

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!

We had a delicious meal here on Sunday evening. The cauliflower salad entree is yummy and the fish of the day was really really good. The tagine is nice but the sauce is a bit strong and overpowering for the rest of the meal, otherwise delicious. Lovely staff and delightful meal. Would love to return again some day.

My partner and i had an amazing time dining at the Bay Plaza hotel restaurant, we would certainly come back and happily recommend to others. The restaurant is located on the first floor so we had a nice view while dining and while not massive had a very nice atmosphere, classy, yet not some where you have to dress up for. We had excellent service from our waitress who was happy to answer our questions and was very knowledgeable about the food, she also made us some very very nice LLB's! The food was also excellent, it arrived promptly (I think we had to wait less then 10 min) and was very tasty, my partner had the fish of the day which was cooked to perfection and was a good sized fillet, i had a vege burger and some kumera fries (Kumera fires were crispy and not greasy at all, possibly best I've every had). The deserts that we had were also extremely good and very good portion sizes, wasn't able to finish mine in the end, although not for lack of trying! A+ dining experience

Very welcoming staff & atmosphere with an evening city view from our window table. Service was attentive & professional with drinks & meals arriving promptly. Our meals were well proportioned and presented. Chef catered to my dietary needs and staff were thoughtful in offering an alternative so as I could still enjoy my choice from the menu. A very pleasant experience for us as overnight visitors in our best little city on a Sunday evening.

I have a lot of allergies and eating out can be challenging - the Bay Plaza hotel were happy to adapt the menu on the fly and ensure I had a lovely dinner (if you have severe allergies/anaphylaxis I would phone ahead). I ordered fish and my partner had the bacon wrapped chicken, both were good. Our table attendant was lovely - he was really friendly and looked after us really well.

It was a pleasant evening of good food, lovely service and wonderful company.
Our party of 3 enjoyed all our meals. I ordered a medium rare grilled Sirloin beef and medium rare it was. Thanks Chef!
The bacon wrapped chicken was also enjoyed and the lamb shank portion was just right.
We really loved the dessert which were truly delicious and unpretentious - apple and rhubarb crumble and pear and ginger cake both served with icecream. Yum!
