Stop! Don't look any further................ if you're looking for a five star restaurant experience you've just found it. We had one of the best meals for a long time last night; fresh, vibrant with delectable surprises in every bite. The Indian fusion works brilliantly and I didn't want the meal to end.
The food wasn't the only thing that was 5 star - the service was perfect too - attentive without being overbearing; the staff knew exactly when to approach the table, were professional yet friendly; nothing was too much trouble. Dishes arrived in a timely manner with just enough time between dishes to relax and digest the wonderful food.
The decor is clean, fresh with a modern art decor feel; the seating comfortable.
Don't hesitate to try this place; you won't regret it.

One of the best all round dinning experiences we've had for a long time.
1) Brilliant friendly staff. Very attentive. It was my daughters birthday and they came out with little candles and birthday chocolates
2) The fusion food was excellent.
3) The staff asked us if we'd like custom cocktails for the kids which they loved
4) Great wine at fair prices
5) Awesome ambience

Usually i'm a bit meh about hotel dining as I travel a bit but this was fantastic. I look forward to staying here as a guest one day.

I never knew this restaurant existed! Saw it on First Table so a friend and I gave it a go. It was fantastic. Nice atmosphere, service was excellent with the waiting staff fully explaining all the dishes and the drinks. Food was delicious. Others on here had said go with the walnut brownie for dessert and they were not wrong - it was divine. The entrees and mains were top notch. Recommend. I will be going back.

One of the best meals we have had for some time. Excellent food full of flavour and just the right level of spice. The place is excellent with views across part of the CBD. Service was excellent, with the staff demonstrating good humour! We did not have desert (as full with mains and starter - so will share starter next time to same room!! !00% recommend.

I wandered in with my partner on a Saturday evening, and was immediately greeted by the friendly staff and incredible aroma of food. We ordered the steak and fish of the day.

First, the chef send us a great appetizer, a kind of ceviche beef. When our food arrived, our expectations continued to be exceeded.

The flavours worked together beautifully. Was everything perfect. The dessert made the end memorable. By the end of the meal we were planning our next visit when we back to Wellington.

Especial thanks for our server Guy, who was attentive, entertaining and knowledgeable.

Perfect dining experience! My husband and I dined here on the 31st Oct and the entire evening was faultless, from the warm welcome, the taking of our coats, being seated to the extensive knowledge and attention provided by our waiter (Guy) to the superb three course meal and bountiful wine list - our expectations were exceeded and we'll be back again. We highly recommend Spring Kitchen!

This was our first experience with First Table and I highly recommend Spring Kitchen for outstanding service, great atmosphere and fantastic food.

We enjoyed every moment

Amazing food and great service. I highly recommend Spring kitchen for the while dining experience. Only small issue was the speed of the cocktails in that they came out late, but the wine was quick.
Also if you’re going to get a pudding, get the brownie. The pineapple was a bit underwhelming and too hard in places. Other than that it was a fantastic evening. Go and enjoy.

The waitstaff were so lovely from the moment you step into the restaurant. The menu including the cocktail menu is unique with fusion elements intertwined, which I didn't think would work but was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing, so tasty. Would recommend to everyone!

We had a delightful meal. All the dishes were interesting and passed the 'could I cook that at home test'. The desserts were the highlight. The brownie was the best gooey, chocolatey substance and exactly the right size. The poached pear was perfect, and set off by the pale orange, just slightly savoury mousse. They mixed a mocktail especially for the birthday girl, and it was just what was hoped for. Highly recommended.

My partner and I had dinner here before a play. It was a beautiful setting - the furnishings and ambience are in tune with the history of the building. The service was impeccable, staff were attentive without being overbearing.

For entrees, we tried the Gorgonzola bread (amazing!!!), lamb chop and salmon.
For mains we got the duck breast & pork belly with a side of cauliflower. Overall, the food we tried was delicious with the exception of the pork which I found to be dry and without much sauce.

We recommend Spring Kitchen especially with the First Table discount (it paid for our bottle of wine!).

I am a Restaurant manager, and coming over here I was impressed. The service was great! We were acknowledged as soon as we got there. The staff were very hands on and pay a lot of attention to detail. The food was amazing too, i had a curry soup and the steak they have on the menu. It was out of this world. I would say that dining over here has been the best I've had yet in New Zealand.

The food was good and the waiter was very friendly. Forgot to bring us our drinks and then put them on the bill twice so a bit of a mix up but a pleasant evening.

Wonderful meal - tasty and flavourful, excellent vegetarian options, and great service.

- dined at Spring Kitchen on

From the start to the end, the service was good. The food was good and we enjoyed the item that was recommended by the waiter.
The only thing was that, probably because it got busy, it took a while to get food. Not extensively long but my friend and I were both hungry so felt like forever.
It was a cute restaurant with good service and food.

Really enjoyed the food, steak was well cooked and the beef cheeks were melt in your mouth, would recommend both dishes

We were warmly welcomed and showed to our table. Our waiter explained the menu, even offering pairing suggestions. We were offered a complimentary appertiser while we waited for our meal to arrive - nice touch. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The Rosa cocktail was lovely and the malbec wine beautifully smooth :) We will definitely be back to try some of the other meal options.

The restaurant was a really pleasant surprise the location, the nicely decorated venue and really personable staff. The menu was interesting with great variety and what I would call fine dining. We had a great time and went somewhere that I just never would have gone without the First table deal.

We had a great meal. My only complaint was we couldn’t hear each other speak because it was so loud.
The food was really yummy - Parmesan fries were amazing.
The desserts were nice but I felt for $16 ea I was expecting something more.
First table makes this a better value dining experience
