Over all it was OK, food pretty average and it was freezing in the restaurant! Service a bit slow and forgotten milk shake order. For the price I don't think we will be back.

We went there to get some Angus steaks but it was not what I expected to get when you order some of the best meat in NZ. The steaks were not seasoned properly and was cooked too much.

The noise level was a bit high but lovered when people began to leave the restaurant.

Not that I regret that I went there, maybe I just had some higher expectations for the place.

General expectation of an average family restaurant, suitable for mixed family groups (young children to seniors), which it is. Setting is great, but service, variety on menu and food all unremarkable, more pub standard than restaurant. Prices were what I'd expect from somewhere more upmarket, so overall feel it was fine for what I was expecting, but a bit overpriced, and underwhelmed.

Great blace to dine. Suitable for all ages and occasions. Great food, standard pricing. The staff were excellent. The only thing I think is lacking is if you have mobility requirements. There is usually a taxi van or taxi parked in the mobility parks ( most of the time but not always, i did mention to staff and they said it was next doors responsibility) an there's not much room between tables, but I'm sure one could ask ahead of booking about this

There was the sticker off and orange in the mussels meal we had and the mussels hadn't been cleaned well. Staff were obliging and friendly. Replacement meal was made quickly. Background music was quite loud.

I ordered a steak medium rare and it was very well done. My salad was simply lettuce, carrot and dressing, far too simple for a nearly $30 meal. I was really disappointed as it was a special meal. I won’t be back sorry

The service took too long and some meals were served after others had finished eating. We had to prompt staff to get dessert organised for tired kids. Staff apologised but there was no discount offered for the delays etc. There were some great things about it but lengthy delays make me hesitate to come again.

The interior of the restaurant is excellent, the staff I feel could have more training. They bought our mains out before clearing our table of starters. Our mains were not all brought out together, there was approximately 15 minutes between the first two coming out and the last one (four of us were dining).
Thought the meals were not up to the standard of the old Cobb n Co and were overpriced for the quality & presentation.

Despite being extremely busy the staff were welcoming and looked after us very well. There was quite a wait for our meal which was understandable given the number of people in the restaurant.

I do understand that it was a very busy night for the restaourant due to the Fleetwood Mac concert but disappointed that we had to wait more then an hour from ordering till our main was served - this meant that we were rushed & not able to properly enjoy our meal to enable us to get to the concert on time.

We dined at Cobb & Co on the night of the Fleetwood Mac concert. It's fair to say they were 'under the pump' with a high volume of patrons. They handled it beautifully- staff were friendly, happy (not flustered as you might expect) and took it all in their stride. Orders were taken promptly and the meals came out in a timely fashion despite the business. The food was great and we were all overcome with nostalgia watching the wait staff walk past with kids meals in cardboard stage coaches, traffic light mocktails and and Cobb loaves. Loved it!

Cobb & Co has become very expensive. We had to approach someone to order our drinks as no one came to us in the first 15 mins of getting there and it was not busy at this time. We got showed to our table and then left. Food was ok, only one bowl of cobb crunchies between two kids, used to get one each! Not as good as it used to be!

The majority of the food has very clearly been microwaved upon order and does not appear fresh at all. I would actually be very interested to know how much of the food is prepare on the day!

We always enjoy taking the kids to Cobb and Co. They enjoy their meals and Traffic Lights and then we get a little quiet as they play in the play area.

Delicious food. The play area is great and the kids drinks and desserts were gorgeous! Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meals and their drinks. Mild overcharge which we figured out once we got home which was disappointing. One of our party was in an electric wheelchair. The dining area was spacious and bathrooms perfectly adequate to make his night comfortable.

Love going to Cobb and Co. Dunedin. Food is good quality and the staff are warm, welcoming, and helpful. It as a little noisy the night we went - background music seemed louder than usual, and there were a couple of noisy kids (but given it's a family restaurant, we expect that). The restaurant has done a great job of converting the space in the Railway Station into a nice place to go.
