This was once a very, very good restaurant. Regrettably, in my estimation its enjoyment value has declined somewhat. 1. It appears to be a men only restaurant. I have attended the restaurant twice very recently and it was attended only by men. Accordingly, I would now be reluctant to take my partner there for lunch. 2. In my view the attending staff are inappropriately dressed and not properly trained in the hospitality industry. 3. The tables are so arranged that if you are not seated alongside the windows the table staff are constantly moving between you and other patrons-quite intrusive and disconcerting. 4. In the past the meals were of the highest quality but yesterday I was serve "yearling" dressed up as veal. Misleading and quite disrespectful. Also, my pre-luncheon beer had no head indicating a failure to ensure that the detergent was fully rinsed from the glass. 5. I believe that this restaurant could once again achieve the standard it once held with sound management/selection of staff, careful of monitoring of food quality and an eye for detail. The Oaks Hotel in neutral Bay would be a good example of how a hotel dining room should deliver.

First rate steak every time. Their eye fillet with bernaise sauce is my go to and you just can't fault it! Solid wine list.

About Fairmont at Occidental Hotel

Sail Away The Fairmont restaurant is a one-of-a-kind relic from a former time. It’s housed in The Occidental Hotel which is an historic hotel dating from the 1850s. Legendary around Wynyard Square, the hotel is the oldest building in the area, its old-timey architecture transporting you back to another era. Inside though, the hotel is breezy and sophisticated, populated with a lot of businessy types on breaks or meeting up for work. The hotel’s pale blue walls and wooden skirtings may well make you feel like you’ve entered the top-deck dining room of the Titanic. The entree menu will spoil you with oysters done three ways, three more seafood dishes and a Peking duck pancake highlight. Mains are mostly steaks, and trust us, these solid servings are something to savour. Would you like a drink with that? The Fairmont is famous for its long wine list, which features over 100 different numbers and has even won the hotel an award. So come on down to Fairmont and sail away on a sea of deliciousness. Best Dish: the mushroom rib eye
