Description: The Taste of Our Place - Kia Ora, Kai, Kaitiaki. At Logan Brown, you'll experience a welcoming, inspiring and genuine taste of our place, our people and the produce that makes you proud to be a New Zealander. We opened in December Friday the 13th in 1996 and decades later it is way different but still the same! We have evolved with dining trends, service styles, taken opportunities with new product and techie innovations and of course will continue to do so. What has never changed is the sharing with our guests our true passion for our craft, our community and our country. We want everyone to be as proud as we are about New Zealand’s environment, the land and seas bounty, and the amazing people who harvest or produce from it. Working closely with these passionate producers inspires and excites the team who are proud to share their stories, and we always welcome new seasons and new to the market produce from suppliers and give it a go.

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff helped to make our dining experience one of the most memorable. With gorgeous tasty dishes perfectly matched with local wines the Chef's Choice Tasting Menu is the only way to go. Decanting ritual a favorite. Love this place. We will be back.

We celebrated my wife's birthday here. Service and attention to detail was excellent. The first question was "Is this a special occasion?"
The bistro lunch was imaginative and full of flavours. The portions were not large but suited us perfectly. I recommend addition of a side dish to complement the main. Brussels sprouts will never be the same again after their tasty combination with walnuts and truffle oil. For silver service dining, I recommend this restaurant!

This was my first visit to Logan Brown and I had very high expectations, as there should be for one of NZ's finest restaurants.

It was a very good experience and meal, although not at polished in the service/execution of things as I would have hoped. Still, I would certainly go back again.

We had the A'La Carte - great Bluff Oysters and Paua Raviloi to start (although the lemon in the sauce did overpower it too much). Followed but a fantastic octopus dish and mains of Duck and Venison - both delicious and worthy of a top menu anywhere in the world.
The truffle fries can not be missed!

Loved the wine list, plenty of choice and very reasonable selections right up to some celebration options. We chose an excellent bottle it Ata Rangi Pinot 2009.

Perfect atmosphere in the dinning room - friendly (if a bit flustered) service.

This is our favourite Wellington Restaurant. We recently took friends who have not been before. They loved it and want to go again. It is so nice to be confident in recommending a restaurant and know that it will meet expectations every time. The Bistro menu is great value and gives you food most of us would never put the effort in to make.

We enjoyed another fabulous bistro meal at Logan Brown last night. The two of us had different entrees (gnocchi & salmon), mains (shiitake risotto & braised lamb belly) and desserts (white chocolate parfait & apple frangipane tart), with my partner having the half glass wine match. He's always in awe of how perfect the wines work with the course being served, and I adore the Sea Red dessert wine - its the best ever!

We love going to Logan Brown as we've never been disappointed, and the quality and value of the Bistro meals are excellent. We go to a few different restaurants, at the high and low end, but this is the one we keep coming back to regularly as the food, service, wine and atmosphere is always wonderful and we love it!

The waiting staff are professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable. They also do so well in taking lead from the diners on the level of conversation desired. Importantly too, they're never pretentious and we're always made to feel comfortable - this is quite the distinction between this restaurant and many other high end restaurants in our experience.
