Great food (especially the duck confit) and atmosphere. Service was great. The price was also good, for 35 per person you can get a 3 course meal.
Went for a hen’s party – everything was fine until they informed us they had given the cake we have made for the bride to the other table. They didn’t seem concerned and offered us free dessert, however, this didn’t make up for them giving another table a cake I had spent half the day baking and decorating for the bride.
Went for dinner Saturday night. Took advantage of $35 3 course special. I had the Tomato soup for starter and the plate was smudged and the taste was slightly salty. For main I had the lamb shanks which were very good. For Dessert I had the Chocolate hot fudge cake which was light and very nice. The major criticism I have is if clientèle are making the effort to dress smartly then so should the management and staff. Being greeted by the maitre d’ wearing denim jeans is poor.
Went for dinner tonight, what a shamble…. Service was great but that was all. Food: I had the Fettuccine Carbonara, chunky bits of boiled bacon and mushrooms with plain watery sauce and 3 pieces of grated carrots on top for decoration. My Shandy arrived semi-cold, and they don’t do battered fish for kids, they’re saying they go for the healthy option, how patronising that is. We were really looking forward to have diner there and we were so disappointed. Won’t go again.
Thank you for a relaxing and enjoyable evening.
We wanted to go directly to management but alas no.
We had a table booked for 6 under Naydene tonight. The waitress we had looking after us was exceptional. Her customer service is an asset to the restaurant. She was informative, made requests at the right time, did not interrupt our group unnecessarily and made sure we were attended to when needed. Overall the best waitress we have had at any restaurant for a long time. We hope she is given the recognition she deserves – she is an asset to your business.
The food was impeccable and the rest of the staff were of top quality, assisting with irregular requests ie Multiple Sclerosis person requiring a trained dog to attend.
Aubergine definitely has people that will return and we will be recommending others for sure.
Thanks to you all, especially our waitress – cheers.
Aubergine is very popular and was packed when we visited last weekend but they are more than capable of handling the large amount of customers, at no point were we left waiting. The severs were very friendly and food was lovely, I had the snapper and the boyfriend had the veal- both excellent. The menu is one of those menus that has so many good-looking options that I’ll need to go back a few times, not that I’m complaining!
Aubergine is Popular (with a capital P). This means that it is fairly hectic and a little noisey. We arrived on a busy Friday night without a booking. No table was immediately available so were shown to the bar. Within a couple of minutes our table was ready. Food is above well average but not spectacular. Service was excellent despite the waitresses being super busy. Mains good. Desserts a little pricey but nice. Excellent wine list.
Great food, however I found the service very slow! The restaurant was about half full, so not what I would consider really busy (otherwise I wouldn’t have minded so much) I won’t go again because of the slow service.
I hadn’t been to Aubergines for a number of years.
This is a restaurant that understands its customers completely.
A well balanced menu and a good wine list.
The staff are welcoming and attentive.
I had the fish which was superb.
The desserts are a bit on the large size but are lovely.
This is my favourite restaurant in Auckland. Such great value and great food. I usually have eye fillet and the steaks are huge! I love the profiteroles dessert. The staff are amazing and very friendly! Whats best is the fact u get a three ourse meal for only 35 p.p
The Aubergine is were I go for the greatest lunches on a budget. they have great set menu lunches that are so yummy. My favourite is soup of the day then a massive and so tasty open steak sandwich with fries.with a nice Irish cider to wash it down for about $20 bucks
Doesn’t sound flash but so so tasty.
Recommend to all.
The food, though pricey, is consistently good. All four of us enjoyed our meals and left feeling full to the brim! If you can, I’d recommend asking for the $35 voucher deal from their website. Three courses for that price is not bad! The desserts are all very good!
Service was attentive. We actually were able to order more drinks, which is unusual in a restaurant in New Zealand!
Excellent Food – generous portions and delicious!!! Great atmosphere!! Friendly and helpful staff!!! Great value on special lunch and dinner deals!!!
I love Aubergine, the food is great and the service is fast and friendly. The snapper is so nice, and the creme brulee is to die for! I would definitely recommend, and am a repeat customer. They often have a voucher on their website for 3 courses for $35 dollar, it is such good value for money!
I heard lot about Aubergine and i went with my colleagues for business party. We liked the ambiance, food and staff is so friendly. Recommend every one to please visit it ones.
We headed a long for a quick business lunch during the week. The service was quick and they have an extensive $30 lunch menu. Both the pasta dishes hit the mark for us. It seems to be a place popular with groups as there were a number there on the Thursday we went.
Four of us ate with a great value coupon (3 course meal for $35) and thought the food was very good. My husband and I had the duck which was delicious. Great service too. Will definitely go back.
The food is good though slightly pricey. Desserts are lovely but at around $10 each, they should be.
If I remember correctly, you have to order your veg and/or salad sep. to the main course – so find that a little annoying to have to pay in addition to the ‘main’ price.
Always good service though and you don’t have to wait long to be served. Always a busy place especially at weekends.
Amazing! Four of us went out for dinner and each of us ordered something different and absolutely loved our meals.
Usually not a fish fan, I ordered their snapper, which was unbelievable. Everything was so flavoursome and delicious.
The desserts were good too.
A little stingy with their glasses of wine though – wish it was BYO.
I regularly eat at Aubergine in Takapuna and find it a good place to eat.
I particularly enjoy the Chicken Filo and the Chicken salad is also worth a mention.
I have always found the service to be friendly and at times when I have asked for a quick meal before a show at the Bruce Mason center or wherever, it has always arrived quickly with no loss of food quality.
The menu selection of European and Mediterranean dishes seems to be pretty good, and my guests and I have always found something we like.
Overall a good quality restaurant in a convenient location and providing good service and tasty quality food.
Six of us dined, entrees all served at the same time, hot n good. Mains were well presented, tasty. Duck very good, a signature dish. Would recommend
a kinda place you sit and be seen in takapuna, not something i care about.
if youd o, then you can go here.
the food is really not that special, plain, boring and very bland.
i ordered the chefs specialty which tasted like an experimental dish.
deserts are ok, but also expensive.
would not go to eat there again, maybe jsut for desert
Food was ok, food a bit overcooked though. Service was appalling, waited for 20 mins+ for Dessert Menu – got sick of waiting so left
I have often enjoyed meals here. They do an amazing steak and tastey veges and deserts! A+++ would trade again.
Four of us over 50 year olds called into Aubergine after the All Black-England rugby Test match.
It was 9-30 at night but that was no problem for them, and there were still a few people in the restaurant.We didnt have to wait long to be served but by time our meal was put in front of us it was lukewarm.Two of us had eye fillet steak and the other two had lamb shanks.These had dollops of mashed potato which was tasteless and a bit lumpy and surrounded by a gravy which we all agreed must have come out of a packet.We debated for a fair while during the meal if the mashed potato was out of a packet also and decided it must have been.We were reassured when we were paying for the meal that it was real potato and that they served similar up each night.The thing was the meal was cold and very very average in taste and I could have done better myself even though I am only an average cook.When I go out for a meal I expect to get something better than I(part time cook when Im forced to husband)could have done.When two of us went to pay for the meal and the question was asked whether we enjoyed it we both said no we hadnt.They agreed to knock off the coffees we had which was good but would have rather had a good dining experience.
