First time booking at First Table experience and having dinner at CQ just absolutely wonderful, Gave my name showed the booking (had it on my cell phone easy ).CQ said they were expecting us, gave an option of where to sit, made us feel very welcomed, kai was tino reka Lamb Rack and Roast chicken I don't like Green Beans , yours were very tasty that I ate them all my friend manager a taste. Panna Cotta was delicious and loved the praline couldn't eat the beautiful rose petals and Pomegranates But we will be back

A lovely evening, excellent service & decent food. Good sized portions, cooked perfectly but we felt it lacked a little flavour so 4/5 instead of 5/5.

Food was very delicious. Service was excellent! My partner and I did the sign language as illustrated in the menu and it was an unforgettable experience since we get to communicate to our gracious table server using it. They understood us and we learned from them too.

I took my grandchildren out for dinner. What a lovely experience it was This is a sign language restaurant. There was Alphabet on the kids menu and other signs on the adult menu. We had a lovely time leaning the sign Alphabet. Nice for the children to experience meeting a deaf waitress first hand. She was lovely. Food and service both great. $16 for the kids menu which included, main with side order, dessert and a drink. Excellent value.

Excited to try another restaurant. Came away a little unimpressed. Salmon entree neither cold nor hot. Was told it was supposed to be luke warm. Fish main was ok but lacked flavour and seasoning. Pleased we ordered two sides.

Lovely experience, with lovely wait staff. I thought it was very cool how they incorporated sign language into the menu and with the staff. Beautiful ambience with jazz music playing in the background. Food was delicious. We had the fish of the day and the Tarte Tatin.

The staff made us feel welcome like we were theirs friends thank you very much. The food we couldn’t fault we enjoyed the whole night. There was no rush and they met all of our expectations with a smile and ease. We will definitely come back and dine and if need be stay there. Again thanks for the wonderful service 10 our of 10 !!!

The servers were quick, friendly and very accommodating. We loved the sign language phrases available on the menu and used them as much as we could (with a few pointers from our servers when we didn't quite understand). The food was divine, big portions, the lamb rump and the fish of the day were amazing! Will definitely be coming back :)

Being from out of town we did not realise that this was a hotel's restaurant. Absolutely zero atmosphere. Service was very poor all round. The food was nice. We would never go back.

This was my first dining experience at CQ. We arrived to an empty restaurant which was full within the hour. No surprise as food was excellent and service very good. Very reasonably priced too! Will go again.

Food was a bit average, beef and salmon was overcooked, ambitious menu with some promise of flavour but I don't think they pull it off. Service was ok,but lady seemed frustrated when she couldn't work out 50% off food. I wouldn't go back when there is so much choice in Wellington.

Nice food but mediocre ambience. It is a restaurant in Quality inn hotel. Small selections of main course but big selections of drinks. We ordered fish of the day and they lemon fish was nice and fresh but the accompaniments were only ok. Didn't have any dessert. It is a place that I might go back once a year.

My wife and I had the fish and chicken dish for main. Both were good. I found some review for CQ restaurant that the sides with the main are not enough. I maybe agree with the chicken but definitely not with the fish. The fish dish came with potatoes and it was totally enough to make you fill. We also order one Hand cut fries which the quality was also good, but, it wasn't necessary as the potato with the fish made us fill.
For the dessert, we had Eton mess and chocolate truffle. Eton mess was really good, but chocolate truffle was only fine, it can be decorated better.
Overall, with the 50 percent discount, I highly recommend to at least try this restaurant for one time. However, I think the price is high if you want to pay the complete price.
