Came here a couple of days ago, great atmosphere in the restaurant and shiny wait staff, however, we ordered food and was not too good. Alcohol is certainly up there with the most expensive in Auckland.
Seems like a nice place for a pre dinner drink but not to many.

Went for dinner, and made a booking, was explained it was quiz night and would be quietened down by the time we got there.

Arrived at the bar to get our reserved table and waited for a while to be served, very slow. then put at a table which had a loud quiz night speaker above us.

Service was initially a little slow, but once seated, the staff taking orders were friendly and quick.

I had the Baby back ribs, which was a large serving, and nice and spicy, the chips were nice, the coleslaw was a little bland and didnt finish it.

Enjoyed my food though, and was a reasonable price, would definately return if in the area looking for dinner.
Would be an ideal place for people to eat before or after Vector arena events, and save the drive (and the price) of heading out to mission bay etc

Plenty of people were eating the pizzas, and they looked very good, and would order one next time.

Given 3 stars, as there is no 3.5s and its not quite a 4, but a nice place worth a look anyway

It’s a pumping atmosphere here on a Friday for lunch. My friend & I enjoyed our shared Antipasto platter. We asked for ‘less meat and more veg’ due to one of us being a vegetarian. For $35, we received an ENORMOUS platter of delectable sun-dried tomatoes, baby-belle peppers stuffed with soft cheese (Clevedon Buffalo Mozzarella if I’m not mistaken), Olives, mushrooms, green beans, chorizo, chargrilled red peppers, gherkins, etc, etc. A lovely spot outside in the sun was a bonus. Only thing missing was the artichokes that were on the menu, and I was desperately craving! Oh, and more bread would have been really good (the four slices of ciabatta were very nice… but not quite enough for the size of the platter)! And we felt that a further $5 for another couple of slices that the waitress apologetically offered, was a bit unnecessary…

We both enjoyed the staff’s recommendation of “The Ned” Pinot Gris, and I appreciated that the helpful young women at the bar offer me a tiny taster before I committed – fantastic :) They also warned me that the food would be half an hour, before I placed the order… so that was fine – the place was packed.

It’s a very busy gastro pub, where you ‘bags’ a table and then head up to the bar to order & pay. (In other words, no table service provided.)
One more recommendation for the staff… can you please remind me to use my loyalty card? – I always forget!!!

A very pleasant way to spend a Friday lunch.

Had dinner here a few weeks ago and it was bad, really bad. I ordered the pumpkin and mushroom risotto. What I got was some over boiled white rice with some hard, undercooked chunks of pumpkin and about three token slices of mushroom. My dinner date had a pizza which only had topping over half the base and needed another 10-15 mins in the oven (the cheese wasn’t even melted in places. Worst meal I’ve had out in Auckland.

I had dinner here on a 6.30pm Tues. The staff were friendly, quick, and had good service. There was ample free 2hr carparks on 3 sides of the building. The place was neat, tidy, classy, and clean.

My companion and I ordered the Sirloin Argentina and Lamb Saddle (both $32 ea). The food was prompt, and the flavours were good. It wasn’t ‘excellent’ though and I wouldn’t liked to pay about $25-27 for it (instead $32).

However, all-in-all was a pleasant evening because of venue, carpark, professional staff, easy access, cleanliness, and reasonable food standard.

Had a lovely lunch with my friend here today. The place is very nice and clean, the food was excellent, the apple dessert was delicious, and the service was friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. A++
