Arbitrageur Wine Room
With an impressive list of over 600 local and international wines, the Arbitrageur Wine Room offers the best wine experience in Wellington. The menu consists of salads, soups, pasta, risotto, and crustacea. It is available for corporate meetings and business conferences. A winner of several awards some of which are 'Cuisine Restaurant of the Year' in 2005, and the Award of Excellence 2005 in the Wine Spectator Magazine Wine List Awards.
Athough the (rather overpriced)food and ambience were good, the staff were the rudest I have struck for some time. They seemed to have a problem with everything we did (despite us being courteous and co-operative) and we all got the impression the waitress was keen for us to leave as soon as possible, which is unacceptable when you are paying $75 a head for dinner and it's only 9pm!(and there were other free tables nearby). On several occasions the waitress stalked off when we did not make an instant decision, rather than politely asking if she should come back in 10 minutes. I idly picked some wax off the table, which had leaked out of the candle holder and the waitress came and made a big performance of wiping it up, asking sarcastically if we'd 'had a wee accident?'. It spoilt my night. When another group of friends were paying the manager demanded that just one person pay (for 30 people!!!).Only go here if you like being treated with disdain.
Have eaten at this establishment twice. The first time for lunch, and it was a good experience.
The second time they overcharged by 100 NZD by adding extra mains to bill. The manager did not apologise for this "mistake".
Please check the bill after paying, if you feel the need to go to a place that doesn't value it's customers.
