    Beautiful restaurant tucked away within the GOMA building. We’ve received exceptional customer service, enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere, and absolutely liked the minute detailed way in how the dishes were presented. Kudos to all staff and the chef. We will definitely come back again and recommend it to friends.

    It had been years since we’d dined at GOMA Restaurant but we certainly will return soon. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I even got the salad dressing recipe! The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. I can’t recommend this restaurant more highly! Thankyou!

    I enjoyed a wonderful lunch of oysters, prawns, scallops and sourdough bread. The Witch's Falls Sauvignon Blanc was a very poor quality one. The colour was wrong for SB, the taste was sour and with the amazing range of Marlborough SBs on the market, the GOMA Restaurant could easily choose a more palatable one.

    We have been eating at Goma for years and this time did not disappoint. Delicious and creative. Just what one would expect from art gallery design and taste. Oysters and scallops Wow!!

    This restaurant is a really fantastic 'day out' treat for us. I love the attention to artistic detail, the fact we can languish over a superb, fresh and creative menu, and chat with the staff about the current shows and artists represented by the gallery. Loving this restaurant.

    We had the chefs menu and we were a little disappointed with the portion size and therefore the value for money. The lamb belly was nearly all fat. The prawn dish was excellent although there was only one prawn.

    The food was really good, however the atmosphere wasn't great and the service was a let down. The waitress had to come back to us to confirm what we ordered (which needed a correction) and then they also forgot part of our meal. Our sparkling water was topped up with tap water and we also watched a couple of the staff drop items off plates and then continue to take the plate to the table rather then taking it back to get fixed. In isolation these aren't so bad, however when combined it made for a bit of disappointment - especially for a restaurant of this standard.

    Food was excellent with clear flavours and imaginative plating especially the oysters. Wine list short but well chosen with local and overseas examples

    The service was friendly and the room in GOMA is spacious but the servings are too small for the price we paid. The food was creative and delicious but too little on each plate.

    This was an exceptional dining experience. Our family group enjoy fine dining and this was high end hospitality at its best. We all chose the chef's menu which gave us a taste of some very fine fresh produce, artfully presented and paired with interesting and unexpected flavours, but it worked brilliantly. Each course was better than the one before. We chose drinks from a well curated list. The service was excellent - attentive but not intrusive, and staff very pleasant and friendly. I would love to dine here every day!!!

    So disappointed, had two courses that weren’t edible - uncooked sweetbreads and celeriac as a main course so hard and revolting to eat. Portion size for a $36 meal was not value for money. No extras available in the form of sides at all.

    Excellent manners from wait staff.. Knowledge of food and wine exhibited. No condescending attitudes shown. No "pushiness" shown . Totally enjoyable on lockdown day . Thank you.

    Food was brilliant and delicious. However the service was not up to standard for the food, staff were polite enough, but would expect excellent service and only received fair to reasonable service. Had to ask for a number of things which should have been provided as part of fine dining type food.
