A 5-star dining experience in every respect. From the pork belly, slow roasted for 5 hours, to the exquisite desserts, this was a memorable and entirely satisfying experience. You could take the food was prepared and cooked with love and respect and attention to detail. Compliments also to the serving staff who were attentive but not overly so. Perfection.

From the second you walk into Jardin the experience begins! The staff were lovely and accommodating, the food was full of diverse flavors and the decor brings it all together. Cannot wait for next time :)

We had a great meal. We ordered scallops as starter, NZ Wagyu and lamb rack for the main and the Summer Garden for dessert. The scallops were well cooked and well seasoned. NZ Wagyu was cooked well too but the butter Cafe de Paris seems a bit to strong that covered the taste of the beef. For the lamb racks, they were tender and tasted so good. At last, the dessert tasted very refreshing.

I often hate eating out because I'm always disappointed with the food. However Jardin Grill's food is amazing. The flavour of the pork belly develops as you eat the different components of the pork and dish. The texture is luxurious. The sides were unique, fresh and flavoursome. The desserts were beautiful both in taste and aesthetically. We were well looked after by Jardin Grill's friendly staff. The only comment that I'd make was that the t-bone steak was a bit burnt and perhaps not worth the 40 minute wait. Despite this, would most definitely say that Jardin Grill is a must, especially with the 50% discount.

Wonderful atmosphere at the venue. The food was exceptional and the service was attentive. I consider myself a foodie and rate this as a top quality Wellington Restaurant similar quality to Logan Brown and Rita. It's worth visiting the bathrooms they are stunning!

Excellent dining experience. Very kind and friendly staff. The food particularly the rib eye steak with cafe de Paris was exquisite. Over-all my friend and I had a beautiful meal and enjoyed out experience at Jardin Grill.
The only constructive comment I have is after our meal finished and plates cleared we sat for about 15 minutes without being tended to and asked for any drinks or a dessert menu.

But other than that, I would definitely recommend Jardin Grill.

One of the best dining experiences I have had in Wellington. Loved the decor, service was great. Food exceptional, I had the vegetarian options and the men in the group went for the steak, both were beautifully cooked and well presented. Have already recommended to friends.

Thank you Jardin Grill for such a wonderful evening celebrating my husbands birthday.

A great experience overall. Food was very good and the front of house staff were friendly and attentive. Was visiting from out of town, so was looking forward to this dining opportunity as part of a weekend away. It was nice to view some of the kitchen in operation while dining. Kitchen staff super professional and producing delicious dishes.

We celebrated a dear colleague's retirement last night and Jardin Grill was the perfect backdrop - right from how we were greeted to seated at the table - the attention to detail was impeccable! What was impressive was the quick turnaround when amuse bouche was presented and I said I did not eat salmon, I was pleasantly surprised when another amuse bouche selection arrived customised to my preference without fuss.

The mains were simply delightful paired with a great bottle of merlot and the flawless dessert - Le Jardin De Printemps just rounded off the night beautifully.

Couldn’t fault this fantastic restaurant. From the friendly yet professional welcome and service to the most delicious food. Freshly shucked oysters, octopus salad, beef cooked to perfection and the pork belly was to die for. Sadly we couldn’t manage dessert - next time!

This is an exceptional restaurant in every respect: food, service, ambiance. We have eaten in many restaurants both in NZ and London, UK using First Table and, without a doubt, this was the best experience. The restaurant itself is elegant, stylish and contemporary; watching the food prepared in the open kitchen is fascinating and confidence-inspiring; service from start to finish is professional yet personable, attentive but never intrusive; the food we ate was outstanding in quality of ingredients, taste and presentation.

Both the service and the food were impeccable! We loved our experience and as parents of young children who don’t get out alone very often it was such a treat! They even noticed my husband giving me a small present and discretely asked if it was my birthday and then bought out a beautifully presented delicious truffle and fresh strawberries on the house - a wonderful extra touch to finish a lovely evening!

Came here for dinner last night with my wife and daughter. It was to celebrate my wife's birthday. We have heard so much from our daughter about how great the food is here. And now having dined here, I can personally endorse that. Superb food, and fantastic service from the staff who really understand their role – professional, helpful, and yet unobtrusive. The food was perfect and flavours amazing. The waiter, Jana we had was superb. It was refreshing to have someone professional serving us who had a wealth of knowledge. Compliments to Executive Chef, who are providing an excellent service together with the floor staff. My daughters choice of choosing Jardin Grill was an excellent choice and the dinner was “Simply Brilliant”. The ambience, service, and the food was AMAZING and 5 Star all the way. Highly recommended.

Service is exquisite, food is sublime! I feel absolutely terrible about all the other 5/5 ratings I have given because I can't rate my experience at Jardin Grill any higher, and in all fairness, none of the others compare.
