had drinks and dinner at Harbourside..
Food excellent and menu top notch but…Waiting staff left a lot to be desired even though there were plenty.
Continually had to find staff to order food and drinks and get the bill!!
Went to Harbourside on the recommendation of a friend and restaurant owner last week (he had seen a reviewer write a not so good comment about their renovations and was keen to go) I took a party of 7 one of which was a client from Hong Kong so wanted to dine them well.
The place is beautiful, the staff wonderful and the food was extremely good, every meal was stunning, all of us had a great dinner and we went right through the menu. We sat out on the deck and couldn’t think of a better restaurant we’d been too, congratulations on a fine place
We had dinner tonight at Harbourside and would have not called it an unpleasant experience but it was not up to our expectations. Lovely view but the service was average and one of the meals cost $42 which was a spaghetti carbonara with one prawn on the top. We ordered champagne to celebrate but the waitress did not bring out champagne glasses and said ‘ you will be fine with these glasses won’t you?”‘ Referring to our wine glasses on the table. Overall a disappointing night.
What an awesome restaurant Harbourside Ocean Grill is! The presentation, the exciting menu options and the intelligent staff! Well done! We loved every minute of it! The fresh Vanuatu prawns are simply beautiful and the sushi is the best I have ever had!!! The Moet deck with the loungers and the view is to die for! You must go and try this amazing Auckland icon!
Location, decor and staff greeting upon arrival were excellent.
Extensive menu and wine list giving plenty to choose from. Decided on a seafood platter for two and we were most disappointed as the seafood was mainly imported frozen from Australia and tasted bland as well as being watery with no texture. Lovely condiments but could have done with something other than McDonald’s fries to go with it. Sashimi fish was lovely but condiments did not match flavours of fish at all and had to ask for some soy sauce to accompany it. Would liked to have dined on good quality local produce to reflect what NZ seafood is all about.
For us a forgotten place as I would not have been to Harbourside for 10 years.
You can not beat the location and as we had the private room for a function there was a few beers on the deck before dinner. Very much an old style restaurant and due for a re-fit, but still has some class.
Everybody in our group enjoyed their meals and my John Dory main was perfect.
Worth visiting old memories if you have done the other viaduct restaurants to death.
