Dinner at this wonderful restaurant last night. Mains had were Venison and the Eye fillet with Beef Cheek. Deserts were Bread and Butter Pudding and Chocolate???? all the food was superb and could not be faulted in any way. The wines were excellent. The restaurant is very understated elegance. All together this was a dining experience we cant wait to repeat. Thank you Elliot for your hospitality it was just magic.

The Decor is really beautiful and elegant…that’s it I’m afraid.
I arrived with high expectations and left feeling rather disappointed! (my customer who I took to lunch here was also dismissive of the quality of the food/menu)
There’s NO vegetarian main course options on the menu either!…

The waiter was trying too hard to give good service and actually ended up interrupting us whilst we were having a conversation as he was desperate to ask if we wanted more water or drinks.
The food was really, really average. Again one expects a bit more from these high-end establishments but alas it was very bland average food. The menu needs a serious update…
Wont be going back I’m Sorry!

My wife & I were on business in Auckland and wanted an up market high quality restaurant for us & our clients. We dined first and from this outstanding experience we returned last week for another outstanding evening.
Tribeca rates with the best restaurants any where in the world because the owners Mark & Pauline have passion for food and wine and are in attendance to ensure best practice through every course.
The wine list is outstanding and Mark shares his knowledge sublimely with food prepared by world class chefs who have an eye for detail and importantly taste.
This is truly a memorable experience at a fair price. Importantly wines can be ordered by the glass, matched perfectly by Mark to the food.
The old Foundation Building in Parnell provides a sophisticated elegance from the past with the flare of what modern dinning should be about.
Service is attentive and timely with no stone left unturned to ensure your dinning experience.
Try the Duck Breast I can still taste the lingering flavours perfectly cooked
This is the best restaurant we have eaten at any where in Auckland and we thoroughly recommend you try it out.

I took my clients to TriBeCa for an important business lunch. Each and every one of us – all forty-somethings who eat out frequently – agreed that it was the finest food that we have ever encountered… anywhere! If you are looking for THE BEST, you need to visit TriBeCa. A simply breathtaking experience!

This was a terrific restaurant experience. The food was outstanding – and I’m always a hesitant restaurant-goer, given the ‘average’ experiences I’ve had.

Superb cuisine. Outstanding scallops. Creative, different, unexpected and utterly delightful.

Not sure why we have waited so long to go. TriBeCa is the complete dining experience with a very stylish dining room and bar along with food to match. There is also an extensive wine selection.

We were advised that to make the most of evening we should chose the tasting menu. This advice did not disappoint with the two highlights for me being the salmon dish and the apple desert.

Worth spending that bit extra for a special night out.

Amazing! We chose to dine here as it was my 21st birthday and we wanted to go somewhere nice with the family. We were greeted on arrival with champagne and flowers that my mother had organised. I felt very special as they sat us in the bar while we had our drinks. We were then seated at a nice big table with my flowers at the end of the table. The food was amazing! Didn’t think we would be full after the meal but we were! I would defiantly recommend it for a special occasion! The waitress was amazing; she was very patient with us and was very helpful explaining the dishes to my grandparents. Thank you TriBeCa!

After much research to choose a fine dining restaurant for a special occasion we dined here last night. Excellent service, innovative food including the side dishes and an extensive and well stocked and apparently accurate wine list. Disappointed that the Bluff oysters were substituted with Clevedon and the Creme Brûlée dessert was fussy and didn’t match the high standard of the rest of the meal. But this is definitely worth a visit and return and there’s parking too.

I don’t usually eat at Tribeca in the evening but this year in Auckland we tried it and it lived up to its previous high standard.
Newmarket is lucky to have such a great chef in a local restaurant. It compares favourably with most in Auckland

This short review is the result of at least 5 visits to Tribeca, which for many Aucklanders remains an undiscovered gem.

Tribeca occupies a wonderful old worldly and slightly chic ground floor space in a former hospital with both indoor and outdoor tables depending upon the weather.

Now to the food and service, we started visiting Tribeca a good 18 months ago and returned initially as a result of the fabulous food. At the time of our first visit I had lamb with a spiced marshallow, sounds a little strange but came together beautifully not least due the abilities of the kitchen. Subsequently we have dined there several times and have not yet had a less than wonderful experience.

Good service is one of lifes great luxuries, Tribeca appears to have a small team of well trained people with passion. On our last two visits wine suggestions were not only spot on but did little to break the bank balance, most considerate!

The best compliment is to return again and again, this we have done again and again.

Returning to Auckland we as usual had to wait till TriBeCa opened after Christmas. We had lunch on the 14th and till reckon its the best lunch spot in the area.
This is the 6th year we have eaten there and the inventive cooking is always a delight. With great wines by the glass and a great choice I look forward to a few more great lunches before we return to the cold.
Just the thought of sitting in the courtyard cheers us up on cold winter days in England
