I decided to celebrate a significant birthday at Hummingbird for 22 people last Saturday night. What a night! They nailed it beyond my expectations. From the set up conversations with Sinead and her checking in both before, during and after the event (customer service that I've not experienced to date outside of Europe), to the food and great table service...

Our group of 6 enjoyed a very good meal at this venue. The restaurant has a rustic decor with exposed brick and cement beams with hummingbirds as the occasional features on the walls. A warm and engaging atmosphere, and the bar area was busy and vibrant. We were welcomed by Sinead, the restaurant Manager, who provided first class helpful and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and thankfully we heeded the advice of our friend. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. We were given lots of time to enjoy each course and spend time visiting with each other.

Honestly, what I liked best were the salads. My wife had the eggplant parmigiano; she liked it; I thought it was just ok (I'm spoiled though. There is a real Italian place next to my office in Austin, Texas). I had the pork scotch. The flavors were decent but the pork was dry. But, the side salad with eggplant was... More

We set out for the city with a list of restaurants to choose from and Hummingbird was the first with a menu that suited us and with tables to spare. With a great table looking out on a busy Courtney Place, a fast a friendly service and a shoulder of lamb cooked to perfection we left for an evening at... More

Visited this restaurant with my family before I returned home to the Uk. We all had a starter, main, dessert and cocktails which were all at a very high standard. My steak main was one of the best steaks I've had and the cocktails were delicious. Great ambience for a Friday evening but not overcrowded at the same time. If... More

This is one of the best restaurant / bar in Wellington. If you want to have some good food with wine this is a great place! Also if you only searching for a bar where you can drink a good cocktail and eat some small bar platters they are all really good :)! Try the vegetarian platter!

We found ourselves in Wellington on Valentine's Day with no dinner reservation. After being literally laughed at in one restaurant and turned away at a few others we were greeted nicely at Hummingbird and since they were also booked up we were offered the option of sitting at the bar. We had a delicious meal (I had the eggplant parm... More
