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.

Logan Brown is a special occasion place for us, but it need not be - the restaurant website offers a range of meal types, set menus and timings to suit people in a hurry to get to a show in Wellington, or with more time to savour the flavours of a 5-7 course tasting menu - with or without wine matches. We went on a Saturday evening and booked the 7 course tasting menu - costing us just over $400 to have wine matches for one, and pre-dinner drinks for two with the meal. In hindsight, we recommend having wine with the food - it adds ceremony and magic to the meal, combining carefully selected wine notes to match and connect up the precisely presented courses using the best ingredients and perfect French inspired techniques to deliver silky purees, sticky flavoursome jus, tender succulent beef and venison delicate pasta, herb butter sauces, and seafood (salmon, crab, prawns and paua) that zings tastes of the sea. The staff were well-trained, super-helpful and friendly and efficient, moving at pace and explaining each dish with care. My partner had some substitutions on his menu to avoid some ingredients, and he really enjoyed them. It was a special occasion treat for him and he really loved the whole experience. I made the mistake of being a driver (not taking a taxi) and not drinking alcohol - and as a result was more aware of the gaps between courses that would have not existed if I had a glass of the gorgeous wine my partner was drinking (I made sure to have a tiny sip of them all and they were exquisite choices). It is hard to find a fine dining restaurant in Wellington as good as Logan Brown, with more and more people eating out often and seeking cheaper venues. Logan Brown is special, and we should support it. The talent of the chefs and the passion of the staff is an experience not to be missed. I just wish I had better eyesight these days and could see the food in dimly lit areas that are common in restaurants - I am sure it would make my experience even more perfect.

Dined with my wife, 6 o'clock sitting, had the sampler menu.
Food was amazing for the combinations and the taste; the service was excellent and without fault - took into account my wife's food allergy issues without any hiccups what so ever.
Couldn't recommend it more highly.

Lunch here was a delight from the set menu. Perfectly presented and ultra delicious. The service was impeccable without being fawning. And what a beautiful place in which to eat. The old bank has been transformed into a temple of gastronomy. Have been here many times before and will again. Reservations are advisable. Evening meals are even more atmospheric. Children are welcome. Behave though!!! Highly recommended.

Lovely setting but service is not what it used to be. The early dining option is great with a good choice of three courses. Service is a but haphazard at times. Good quality food and beautifully put together. A good New Zealand experience.
