Took my 3 boys for breakfast Saturday morning. Parking was easy to find at 9am. They had waffles with ice cream. Big portions so they were full. Nice relaxing atmosphere for a weekend breakfast.

What a wonderful wonderful evening! It was very busy and alive for a Tuesday night - but that didn’t stop our server from stopping in and laughing away with us throughout everything. We ordered 3 starters to share between the four of us (trying the whole rack of ribs) and were stunned to see how generously large they were. We also ordered from the grill and were again surprised at the portion of the sides it came with, expecting them to be small. Everything was delicious and I had the two local Wellingtonians with us comment they couldn’t believe they hadn’t been yet.

Will be coming back again soon, thank you for an amazing night with delicious dining!

I booked a table to take my parents out for a belated birthday dinner. I am always nervous taking them out of their comfort zone but I shouldn't have been in this case. The service was friendly and attentive without being over the top. The menu and specials extensive and all our food was delicious.Everything arrived quickly but without us feeling rushed. We could not have been happier. We will definitely be back!

Om nom nom! 5/5 stars - would recommend! The staff at Dillinger's were very helpful in recommendations on what to order, the smokey mash balls and popcorn chicken were incredibly delicious, and my New York Strip steak was the most tender steak I've ever had. Could not recommend Dillinger's more, we will be back! Thank you!

Popular place! a warm greeting meet our group of 3, 30 seconds after walking in the door. Our reservation was checked and YEP our table was already ready for us. NICE.

Our waitress was flawless in the service she gave. From drinks to meals she was attentive, accommodating and offered sound advice when I struggled to choose from the mouthwatering options.

And the food - Wow, we were not disappointed!
the baby back ribs, sliders and popcorn chicken were a teaser of the awesomeness to come.

HELLO mains... Beef fillet and prime rib with truffle mac n cheese, steak fries and rocket salad and beef jus. Every morsel of meat we ate, melted in our mouths and we will be back for more. For the price you pay, you'll get top notch service, an oustanding meal and experience the ambiance that is Dillingers.
u won't be disappointed well done Chefs and thankyou Paige.

Dillinger's was reasonably packed and bustling when we arrived for lunch. But it looked like a lot of coffee meetings, as opposed to full on lunch diners. Nevertheless, we were standing around for a minute or two at the unmanned "host" station.

Once served, the host showed us to our table, but forgot to tell us any specials for the day, or whether the WOAP festival dish was included in the offer (as the WOAP menu was provided with the regular menu).

Drink and food were delivered promptly after ordering. As most of our group had been to Dillingers before, 3 out of 4 us ordered some derivation of the southern fried chicken, from popcorn chicken, chicken burger and chicken and mash along with some well portioned sides of Mexican street corn and crispy cauliflower, and a fancy cheese toastie with fries.

- Anyone who had chicken in their dish was satisfied as normal. Crispy, tender and nicely seasoned with some dipping / burger sauce
- Street corn was off the cob, so it wasn't quite as expected (i.e. cob on the grill), and the mexican flavours didn't really permeate the corn
- Crispy cauli was ... crispy. But wasn't sure what to expect.
- Cheese toastie was satisfactory, but the artistic smear of mustard on the plate had mixed receptions

Overall, a nice office lunch facilitated by a great first table discount.

Last evening we had a great meal with great service at Dillingers'. Although the restaurant was packed we received timely and friendly service from the time we arrived until we left feeling very satisfied. We would definitely return.

What a fab breakfast! The food was absolutely delicious and the wait staff were super helpful and friendly. My son had the waffles and they were enormous and amazingly tasty. The remaining four of us had different cooked breakfasts - the big breakfast, the vege breakfast and the eggs benedict - all were large servings and very yummy. Great coffee too! Definitely worth getting up early for and a great start to a Sunday!

Had an enjoyable 3 Course meal at Dillingers. Waitress very attentive and friendly. Beautiful harbour views, seated by the window.Had 'fish of the day' [Blue Nose}. Impeccably presented meal. Very tasty,with a blackened prawn and drizzled with curry-flavoured sauce. Could've licked the plate clean,but too many people present!
Only one small niggle was getting asked quite constantly what we wanted for dessert, even though we hadn't started the main course. In and out within 1.15hrs. Would recommend to all. A lovely night out.
