On a perfectly sunny day who wouldn't rate this bar with heaps of outside seating! Perfect spot for people watching and topped with a plate of Bluff oysters and a glass of Couldy Bay! Heaven!

I have eaten at the Dockside resturant a number of times over the years and although not the cheapest resturant in Wellington, the food has been consistently high in quality and the resturant service has been ok. So when we went over on the fly without a booking we opted to eat in the bar as they were full in... More

What a great way to get a group of people together to celebrate a 'surprise' special birthday. The team at the Dockside were excellent - both in the pre organisation support and in the wonderful service when everyone arrived. The food was excellent and the atmosphere wonderful - our sincere thanks for all your efforts

Degustation Menu. Very little to recommend. I could go into each course but that might seem pretty rough on Dockside. I would just say Dont Drinks. Very nice but 15 min wait each round is way to long, got tot the stage as a drink was delivered we ordered the next round, so when we finished the next was arriving.

Thank you for your feedback Angus. It is important to us as we are motivated and constantly looking to improve the experience our guests have with us here at Dockside. After investigation of the evening and your experience we identified that a lack of human resource was the culprit on that evening. We have addressed this issue at our manager... More

I can't recall how we found this place first time round but when we came back to Wellington, we knew we had to go back. The food and service is 5 star and the location is - amazing. Good food is hard to find and Dockside combine this with friendly and efficient service. We'll be back!

The dockside accommodated us for a last minute wedding reception. I cannot express how wonderful this restaurant was. Their efforts made what was going to be a quick no fuss wedding into a very special day. The staff went above and beyond. The food was excellent and the service second to none. I would certainly recommend the dockside to anyone... More

On the back of the childs menu was some activities to keep kids busy including colouring in (crayons were also brought out) Waitress was very friendly and good choices on the... More
