Peter Gordon is going to open new fabulous establishment The Sugar Club on Level 53 of the Sky Tower in July. The Sugar Club has some fantastic history, with it being an iconic establishment in Wellington in the 1980s and then becoming extremely popular in the 90s in Notting Hill and Soho, London. Keep an eye out for more details coming soon.
dine by Peter Gordon is a chic, elegant and award-winning restaurant with a unique blend of Asian, Pacific and traditional European cuisine.
We’ve been cooking and serving delicious food and some of the most exciting wines from New Zealand and abroad for seven years now, and so it’s wonderful to host you here today. A private dining room is also available.
On behalf of myself, Head-chef Nick Haszard, and the front of house team led by restaurant manager Jenny Kiihfuss, we wish you a very warm welcome.
19 Reviews for dine by Peter Gordon, SKYCITY
The decor is modern and there are a few aspects of it which I found… not to be my taste.
Other than that the quality of the food is second to none, service is very good (only a couple of tiny little things which at this level should be rectified).
Excellent wine suggestions from waiting staff – I discovered the red wine Hay Paddock which was divine.
Pricing is in the range of what is to be expected for this kind of award winning restaurants.
Definitely an excellent place for a special occasion!
We decided not to go with the degustation and opted for three courses instead – all of which were on the degustation menu. I had the scallop and prawn open raviolo which was delicious (although there was only one prawn inside). My husband had the mozzarella which he said was a good choice. For mains we both wanted the duck but my husband changed his mind at the last moment to the wakanui beef and he was not disappointed. My duck was a little tough but the flavours on the plate worked so well together that it did not bother me. We managed to squeeze in dessert – I had the ginger creme fraiche brulee – very good! I love ginger so definitely worth getting if you like that. My husband got the peanut butter parfait and I kept wanting some of his. It was fantastic. The waitress brought over a plate of petit fours with happy anniversary on the plate. It was a nice touch to end the evening.
Overall, I would rate Dine highly. I can see why people gave lower reviews with the restaurant space but I guess go earlier or later if you want a quieter experience. It is a popular restaurant and you will get that anywhere you go in Auckland CBD where the food has a good reputation.
I would dine there again – the staff were very attentive and let us try some wines before we chose what to drink which was a nice touch too!
Also ask the staff for recommendations as they will tell you which produce is great on the night.
We had a very average meal over the Xmas period that put us off. At the prices we pay for a night out here I need to know I’ll get a fantastic, memorable meal and awesome service, it just doesn’t do it for me anymore.
A real shame as I will miss going there
My partner had the degestation and really enjoyed it, but the tuna was slightly overdone in some places and the angus beef fillet was also slightly overdone. However, both of us found that overall the quality here was much better than the majority of restaurants in Auckland.
Would absolutely go there again.
we are foodies from taranaki and were not disappointed.
even though we were there early, 5.30, and the only ones there to start with there was loads of atmosphere in such a beautiful dinning room, were given the choice of the menu or a special which was 2 courses for $60. we chose the later and had an entirely lovely meal, stunningly presented, the service was impeccable and friendly, it was probably quite obvious that we weren’t locals due to the camera coming out a few times but we weren’t made to feel in anyway inferior.
we had the dessert platter which is 3 desserts to share, but it came out with 5!….I’m farely sure that was just for us on our anniversary. then when we went to leave the waitress told us not to leave yet, so waited and then she presented us a beautiful glass platter with ‘happy anniversary’ and a couple of petite fours. That just made our night! highly recommend for anyone anytime especially a special occasion!
p.s the food was FANTASTIC!
It gets 3 stars instead of 2 because the coffee did have that wow facor- really good.
The food can be very complex. It is skilfully handled but, I believe, requires a “foodie” mentality to appreciate paying the high prices.
A lovely experience for a special night.
My colleague tried to reserve a table for 13 (for Xmas dinner) but got a very snooty and mind numbingly stupid attitude – they only took a group by 10, but not for 13!
Peter Gordon has his great reputation by creating great food but the restaurant failed to maintain a good customer relationship. A good restaurant not only should have good food but the customer service is what enhances the over all experience. Sometimes it could ruin its good reputation. Mr. Gordon, find out who has been ruining your reputation and do something about it!
The food was nice but too complicated and we felt a little over-priced.
The amuse-bouche (free) was the best part of the meal as it was clean and simple.
Not one for those who don’t appreciate complexity and what seems like 20+ ingredients in each dish. Sometimes we think fresh and simple can be better.
The second visit I enjoyed the duck for my main course and had an assiette ( a mixed plate of several smaller versions from the dessert menu )Whilst I clearly enjoyed myself and fell short of licking the china plate. The same was reported by my friends who also had very good things to say about the wine list.
Dine by Peter Gordon is a grown up restaurant, ambiance with a sense of occasion, fabulous food, a decent wine list at reasonable prices and service that lets you know, your somewhere where people care about about their craft and have a real sense of pleasure in looking after people.
If you appreciate quality and lets face it, who doesn’t and if you can’t afford New York then go because it’s every bit as good as just about everything there.
