We discovered The Monday Room on the recommendation of our new friend from the Christchurch Vegan group and it did not disappoint! Finding a trendy and unique place with both dedicated vegan options and a staff that could also adapt other items from the menu was fantastic! One discovery on our arrival in Christchurch is that kitchens close early! While... More

The food and service are unbelievably good, good variety of options and all well presented and very tasty. The service was great, attentive without being intrusive. Definitely worth a visit.

Came here on a Sunday morning after seeing the Molten Chocolate Hotcakes on there Facebook page and they didn't disappoint at all! They came out just like the picture and tasted amazing. I'm not one for leaving my food but this definitely defeated me! Highly recommended.

This is a must try restaurant. The food is excellent and the menu a little bit different to most places in town. Sharing plates are very generous and an excellent way to sample a good part of the menu. Try the steak tartare - it's deconstructed so you mix it on your table to your liking with oil and spices...

From the first moment you sit down it is an amazing experience. We have the most wonderful and knowledgable waitress that knew all her wine pairing and even convinced us to change our minds multiple times. The food is all sharing. Coming deconstructed sometimes and developed for interaction. Sounds strange but you will understand when you visit. Not a single... More

At first found the whole ordering system challenging but I now know better for next time. The small dishes (side salads really) you only need the one to go with the main. All of it's very good but do make sure you leave enough room for dessert! I had cookies and milk. Fully expecting the 1/2 dozen cookies to be... More

We managed to grab ourselves a table for two on a busy Sunday morning for a terrific brunch. After a refreshing morning cocktail (and why not?), we both had well put together, sophisticated and delicious meals. A definite highlight during our short stay in Christchurch!

Food was cooked to perfection. Got the 'Trust the Chef' and wasn't disappointed in the slightest. Clearly know what they're doing, and were even able to recommend the perfect bottle of wine to go with the meal. Great for couples who want to share food, with a very low-key, intimate atmosphere, comfortable seating, and service that feels quite personal. Pay... More

Description
SOCIAL DINING AT ITS FINEST.

Hello and welcome to The Monday Room

We pride ourselves on having a vast and varied offering, showcasing the best in food in beverage in New Zealand. Our restaurant offers an environment of comfort and quality, with plush banquet seating, and professional yet casual service.

We have a real passion for food, and our team of chefs; with local heroine Hannah Cooper-Grieve at the helm, are some of the highest trained in the country.

Owner Joel Christian has hand-picked a concise yet substantive wine list showcasing some of the best local, and New Zealand wines.

Additionally we offer an extensive cocktail list for those of our guests who care to enjoy a cocktail either before, during, or following a meal with us.

We function primarily as a Restaurant, and our priority is always tables and bookings for guest with the intent of dining. It is highly unlikely that we will have tables or bookings available for cocktails or drinks only; but rather we offer an extensive beverage program for the enjoyment of our guests who are dining.

We offer four different food menus, all of which have their specific times of service, along with specific points of interest. These are detailed as follows:

Lunch:

Our Weekday lunch menu is perfect for a longer lunch, with friends, over a glass of wine or two, or a cocktail.

We offer a range of Low-Alcohol Beer, Wine, and Cocktails; to ensure a responsible Lunch experience.

The menu is comprised of: Entrees, Mains, and Desserts, and is in the traditional format of individual plates, with sides to share.

Dinner:

Our evening menu is all about Social Dining.

The menu is comprised of three plate sizes, and is designed to share from the middle of the table in a fashion akin to traditional New Zealand family dinner.

For your first course we offer the Small plates, either to share or enjoy individually.

For your second course we advise guest to select from both the Medium and Large plates, with the Large plates as your hero protein dish(es) and the Medium plates as the vegetable driven accompaniment(s).

We wil serve the second course through the middle of the table, complete with serving cutlery, for you to then serve on to your own dinner plate.

Dessert:

The Monday Room is a specialist Dessert restaurant, and as such, we offer a large and varied selection of house made desserts. This menu is available every day, from open until close.

Weekend Brunch:

On the weekends we take a break from the fancy restaurant, and during the day we have a little bit of fun with our menu. These days book out fast, so it's always best to make a booking.

We take bookings for tables of up to 14 for Lunch, Brunch and Dinner.
