IF you want to have every sense scintillated, this is the place for you! The décor is fresh and floral, in a sophisticated European kind of way. Plush and rich and very comfortable- a feast for the eyes.
And then onto a feast for the belly. A complementary palate-teasing spoonful of delight( I think grilled cauli topped with labneh and toasted almonds). I adored the Atlantic Scallops and the main of Pork Belly. But my hero was the Peanut Butter Jelly dessert.
It was reassuring and interesting to be able to look over and see the team of chefs buzzing away in their black tiled and dramatically lit kitchen. They were making magic back there!
The 'Ámbassadors' (wait staff) were attentive but not obtrusive, and we had a sense that there was no problem if we took our time; we stayed an amazing 3.5 hours! A treat experience and one to savour.
And even better if you go First Table. Thank you.

Beautiful food and excellent service from Vicki. My husband loved the wagyu beef steak and I had the fish. They were well presented, pleasing to the eyes and yet satisfying our appetite.

Jardin Grill is definitely the best fine dining restaurant in Wellington! Food, service and ambiance is superb! They are not overpriced if you consider the quality of food and service that you get. This is our family’s go to restaurant for special occasions and milestones! Highly recommended!

Amazing dinner at Jardin Grill! Possibly the best oysters we have ever had. Scallops were perfectly cooked and had so much texture and flavour. The cuts of meet we had were tasty and very filling! Beautiful decor and outstanding service! Would definitely recommend 10/10

Service was great, food for entree and main was really good but dessert was a bit disappointing. We had the peanut &Jelly which was really bland and dry, the layered cake was slightly better but didn’t match the level of the first two courses. Stil a really good dining experience overall and we would visit again.

We four friends had a lovely dinner at the Jardin Grill last Thursday evening. Everything was laid on and exquisite. My medium rare 500g T-bone steak was beautifully presented and tasty.
We ordered fruit three appetisers, four mains, three desserts, and coffees and tea afterwards. Our waitress Yi Wen was very friendly and attentive to us all evening although she was walked off her feet as there was so many diners there that night. The only dish that we didn't really like was the escargots mushrooms and bone marrow appetiser.
The hotel and dining room was really beautiful ... great ambience!! The toilet was immaculately clean!!
We look forward to dining here again soon!!

Lovely fit-out, service and food. 50% off makes a big difference and very reasonable prices for top quality food. Highlight was the cut and preparation of proteins and the carrot ice cream which was sensational! Recommended and will return.

Wow what a great night we had at Jardin Grill. My partner's parents had been a few months ago and suggested we try and luckily we managed to grab a booking on First Table. The service was impeccable from the moment you arrive , the team were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the menu and checking in just the right amount to ensure the meal was going well. The food was incredibly, the meat cooked almost perfectly - my partner's steak was slightly chewy for a medium rare, and the dessert was incredible. If you visit Jardin you must get the chocolate dessert and don't share, you'll want your own!!!

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.

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.

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.
