Love all the food options for children. Kids really enjoyed it. Only thing negative thing I could say is that my daughters burger bun was very hard and looked a bit freezer burnt or something.

Great night out. Kids meals are good value. Adults meals a bit pricey.

Lovely and relaxed dining experience. Delicious meals, we had the Weka Wings, Scotch Steak with seasoned vegies and the Chicken Alexander also with vegies. Neither of us could fit in a pudding after that. All were extremely yum, loved the gravies/sauces that went with all three.
Would recommend not getting the large drink though unless you are really thirsty as it is a jug 🙂

Whilst the menu and tradition of Cobb n Co is a major drawcard, our visit was let down by the poor and outdated decor, especially the booths (they were ripped and covered with a bath towel) and the childrens entertainment area (tvs not working and toys that obviously needed santising and updating).

Service could have been improved by offering customers more to buy from the menu instead of telling us what was not available on the menu. Basic service 101, if someone is ordering a steak, then ask them if they would like to compliment their meal with a side of mushrooms, salad or an egg. Some of us like to be asked this as opposed to sticking to whats on the menu. Also ordered a cocktail drink at end of meal, waiting 20 minutes and it didnt arrive so we left without paying for it, no apology nothing.

Restaurant ambience was loud and noisy due to the amount of customers dining in, which cant be helped at times, but perhaps the music on the tvs could have been reduced instead of been blasted with music, talking and loudness, and of other customers asking where their service is because they been waiting to order from the desert menu for 20 minutes as well.

The meals were delicious and wholesome, and definatley value for money, they just need to be served all together so that we are all eating our meal at the same time, and same goes for the deserts as well.

Very highly disappointed! My family of 9 went to New Plymouth Cobb & Co Saturday night and they nearly messed up every meal. One meal half the items were missing. Missed a whole kids meal out and took forever to bring her meal out and ended up being something she didnt order. The pasta was stuck together and hard surely the cook should know how to cook pasta?! Still waiting for a kids ice cream cone and all their Cobb munchies to come but we just left. My partner stupidly paid before the food came. We were here on holiday for my sons birthday and very gutted we chose here to eat. Spent a lot of money on horrible food and service. I will add the fish n chips my grandparents got they enjoyed thankfully.

A very hot night and staff were showing signs of being tired, like us. Timing was a little out on serving between courses but no great drama. We were a family group and they catered well for the varying ages.
A last minute dessert order was no problem.
We enquired about their fish tank they were very obliging about explaining to us how they were looked after.
We will be going back.

Booked for 6.30 we were told take a seat and we will get back to you, along with another group of 5. After half an hour i queried when were we getting seated, they cleaned a table for us inside and were seated 5 mins later. Ordered and shrimp cocktails came out quickly and were nice, how could u mess up them. The roast of the day finally arrived. Was undercooked and luke warm felt like it had been in a bain marie for hours. Had place to go so we ate what we could n left
NEVER TO RETURN. Sheryl 👎

I tried to book for 5 people online, but the app indicated there was not an available table for 5.30. . I phoned and left a message, but did not get a reply. I booked for 3 of us at the time the app suggested was available at 4:45. Bit early for us but I really wanted to take the kids. Arrived to a virtually empty restaurant, and the other 2 people in our group popped in on the off chance of getting a table. The meal was fine, dessert very nice. Kids were hoping the screens would play movies, but after asking three times for them to be turned on they were disappointed with what options there were.
My concern is that the app suggested there were few tables available, and if someone had called me back I would have booked a later table for all of us. Lucky If the restaurant was half full by 6 pm. We nearly ate elsewhere, so potential loss of business from using the app. Staff were very nice and service was prompt

Really yummy food. I would like to suggest making a Keto friendly menu for those who are on the keto diet, low carbs and very low to no sugar.

The food was nice but of our table of 6, 3 people's orders were wrong and we had to ask for the correct things. The young waiter seemed not to know the menu well and ordered the wrong things for us. Thankfully more experienced staff were able to correct it and we did receive a discount for all the problems.

So overpriced. The food was ok but not worth the exorbitant prices - even the drinks were ridiculously priced. Wouldn’t be returning anytime soon.

Great food, awesome old style Cobb & Co. Prompt service, good throwback music to suit all, plenty of options on the menu. Only one downfall, very, very warm in there, perhaps not enough AC or that we sat beside the window where it was quite hot. Ample parking too!

The chef under cooked my lamb twice by which time my husband had already eaten his meal and I was starving so I just ate the vegetables and asked the wait staff if I could just take the lamb home and cook it my self, sadly the chef didn't even put any of the yummy gravy with it in my take hm container so thanks, luckily the wait staff and the manager were lovely and I hope the chef is different when I return next time.

We both enjoy the variation in menu selection, and the Gold card discounts are worthwhile to us.
The same videos are played over and over all from the 50's and 60's getting a bit monotouse as there are other videos that would lessen the poor quality and boring content. Try streaming some videos of music from the web to create a variation. The service and knowledge of the menu is always appreciated from your staff. Love the cobb loaf always fresh and hot...

My family and I had a delicious meal out on Saturday night. The menu at Cobb &Co was really good, lots of variety, perfect for the five very different children we took along with us. My daughter also is coeliac so finding a gluten free meal she wanted to eat was such a bonus, and she LOVED her meal! Definitely looking forward to our next visit to Cobb & Co!

Can't find anything wrong with our visit to Cobb and Co. It's great to see this outfit still prospering with so much competition. My almost 97 year old mother absolutely loved it as she often went there in her younger days when it was at the State Hotel site.
Good food and good service. My Lambs Fry was top notch.

Children’s meals were fine but adult meals were terrible value for money. Coconut chicken was a chicken breast on white rice with sauce and a sprinkle of coleslaw. My daughter (who does not have ice cream or cream) ordered a brownie dessert and was given two tiny pieces of brownie. I can’t to Cobb & Co because my children like it but it was an expensive night for very average food. I will not be coming back.

We. Booked for a table for 4. One was a Birthday dinner. 3 received their main meal. 1 (the Birthday person) was informed their meal had been given to another diner so would have to wait another 5 minutes for her meal to be served.
