Came here on a Saturday night after work for dinner and tried different types of pizzas, as well as the fries and drinks. They were super good, gourmet and cooked well (don't get this high quality at Sals ppl) ! Would definitely recommend this to people wanting a good pizza (and fries, don't forget the fries). I have been here plenty of times before for a burger which I also highly recommend. Don't worry too much about the pricy food, it is well worth the money!

Looking for a great venue for a work do? Budget a bit challenging? Try Tyler St and ask to be situated in their upstairs courtyard with great seating, great views, and it's own bar. We booked this place with a challenging budget of $15 per head. We ordered a mix of pizzas, fries, calamari, pate and bread, salads, and so much more. Staff was happy with the selection and the drinks options didn't disappoint.

I enjoyed dining at Tyler St. Garage. The service was good - staff members are friendly and attentive. The food is quite good too, I enjoyed my burger. The atmosphere of the place is young, fun and loud.

Would like to come back in the future.

Tyler street garage is a lovely place to dine and have drinks. Lucky me — I had 2 pizzas this evening. Absolutely loveeeeed both the saltimbocca and the margherita pizza. I would highly recommend this place for its simple, balanced flavours. I loved the combination of proscuitto and meatball on the Saltimbocca. The Margherita pizza was also divine.

Came here for a work lunch - food is not amazing but cocktails are awesome!! When it's warm it's nice to sit on the 2nd floor, but ground floor still has a great vibe!

Great for drinks, snacks 🍺🍸🍻🍷and Party Night Outs!
Ambience: Funky 😎
Decoration: industrial modern with original parking signage.🚥
Amazing location and good Hot Dogs Menu. Upstairs they have a small but cosy roof🍃 terrace with nice view to the waterfront.
Staff is friendly and service is casual.
Mommy friendly :?🍼 Downstairs is perfect for Lunch they have plenty of space for trolley. I don't recommend the place for kids at Dinner as the place is oriented to attract younger audience with loud music great for party lovers so avoid disappointment.
☆Toilets are upstairs and is not changing room.

We came here for dinner but it was quite busy so we stood around until a waiter came up to us. We found a table inside between two groups of people. 

I ordered the chicken schnitzel which came with coleslaw and a potato bit on the side. My friend ordered a burger with fries. We've both heard good things about the drinks here so we both ordered cocktails! I got the pimms cocktail because it was filled with fruit and I loved the sound of it! Jessica was a bit more adventurous and ended up ordering one which came with a huge leaf inside as decoration. My drink was so good!!!!! I think I ordered the wrong meal though, because my chicken schnitzel was pretty average. The burger was good however! 

The wait staff were knowledgable when we asked about specials and meals and recommendations on which drinks to get and were also quite friendly! Overall, service and atmosphere was pretty good! Tyler Street Garage would be the place to go on a night out for drinks, and I'm definitely coming back to try more!

Met a friend here for a quick chat. We had the calamari and edamame beans. Pretty good as those can get. But I love the interiors--from the outside it looks industrial, but inside is cosy not cold. Will have to come back for their food.

We came here for a bite after 2 so it wasn't busy and the service was excellent. We went to the rooftop part and that was even better. The food was very enjoyable... Better than the 'usual' bar food. Not greasy. The cocktail drink was very nice too. You could tell that it would be a very busy place after office hours!!

I came here for dinner recently and was a little disappointed with the menu.. It seemed more like a lunch menu!
The staff were lovely and organised apart from us having to go order our own desserts at the bar..
I ordered the salt and pepper squid with a side of seasonal vegetables and it was absolutely delicious! It was better than I expected and was good portions!

The chocolate brownie was very yummy! The price range was very good, cheap eats and fancy food :)
Will definitely eat here again!

Its a keeper! Yes this bar is definitely in the book of returns. If your looking for a place to have drinks after work - look no further. The pizzas & cocktails are amazing and not too overly priced I might add. The top floor mezzanine is available for hire - for which was hired by the one and only Justin Bieber when he visited NZ on tour. It overlooks the ports of Auckland and scenery is just simply gorgeous. The decor is blacked out industrial themed - Super cool and styling. Great place to have a boogie after dark too.

I've been there once with classmates in lunch. Nice platters with varies cheese and meats and sources to try. Suitable place for people more than four. Upstair has more private place for a large group to reserve a party. There is outside balcony in the upstairs that has great view to harbour.

The food is simple but fresh, had the Mexican Chicken Pizza, tasted fantastic especially with the great NZ hot sauce that adorns each table. Services was the real hero. Great attitude from the two team members I dealt with.

Went to TSG for lunch with work colleagues today. The space and atmosphere was nice. The food was delicious and arrived quickly, it was also reasonably priced. Really happy with all of that.My only issue was with the staff. Not very attentive. Took a while to ask if we wanted food/drinks and that was only when one of us approached them to ask them to take our orders. No follow up was given on how we were finding the food etc. They didn't come over at all actually after the food was served. I found this pretty disappointing.

Everytime I'm in the Britomart area, I always feel like stopping by for a nice cold drink. I love coming here for a nice and breezy seat out the front, accompanied with an icy beverage and some (seriously good!) hot chips! Definitely a nice and relaxing option after a long week :-)

I have been here twice since November. The first time I had the Tyler Street Garage platter, fries and caramelized onion bread.
The second time we had the same platter again plus the other platter on the menu.

The first time I loved the platter and couldn't wait to go back, unfortunately the second time I can't say the same.
The TSG platter the second time was noticeably of lesser quality. The squid tasted as if it was cooked an hour before it was served and had been kept under a heating lamp, similar to the squid you would expect to have at a food court Chinese smorgasbord kind of place.
It also didn't have the same sauce that came with the chicken the first time.

The meat platter to me looks very sad, I just feel the platter is of low quality.
The upside is that the service is efficient and friendly, the drinks are good too. If I go in the future it will be for drinks and for snacks quite simple that can't be screwed up, like fries.

faultless visit to tsg yesterday. We went up to the rooftop garden area and even with it being packed the server went out of her way to make sure we had enough room and were comfortable. 

We ordered 3 pizzas, 2 mushroom and 1 mexican chicken, and also 2x kumara fries and 1x chips. My friend ordered a  very good cocktail (shore) . While i didnt eat the mushroom pizzas the others said it was delicious, and so too was the mexican chicken. Probably the best pizza i have ever eaten. 

What really made me like this place was how top notch the service waas. They were dealing with a full house during lunch, and with multiple christmas functions and still dealt with all the customers exceptionally. 

Little bothers were the heat- an extra fan wouldve been good but not a big enough issue to affect my rating. Good job tsg will be back

Don't be fooled by the restaurant's name, Tyler St Garage probally is one of the best restaurant I been to in term of great interior designs and awesome lighting. The restaurant also offers great outdoor space and is perfect for that quick quality lunch break. The food is pretty good especially the burgers however the prices are quite high dues to the restaurant's location. definitely would recommend to give it a try. 3/5 for me

Absolutely superb food and service. Pricings are fair and portions are generous and packed with flavour. Would go again any day for that Southern Style Chicken with that amazing coleslaw.

With high expectations which were not completely met, I'm going to have rate Tyler Street Garage a 3/5. Last friday, my friends and I decided to get an Uber into Britomart to celebrate my 18th birthday. 

Tyler Street Garage was high on my hit list. I'd heard a lot of good things about it and was super keen to check out what all the fuss was about.

Walking through the doors, you merged into a dense crowd of people which took a good while to get through. Finally arriving at the counter, we ordered a round of cocktails. Extremely refreshing and sweet, the wait was worth our time. 

The music playing was pretty average, something your mum would scrunch her face at. Maybe it's a better lunch venue? I would recommend Fort Street Union over Tyler Street Garage for a night out - just based on that nights experience.

Been here for excessive drinking before popping to the Penthouse Club.

Drinks are quite trendy, looks awesome, however the lighting is almost impossible to take photos.

1/5 drinks will taste yummy, the rest just look fancy and drinks are more towards the bitter end even if you order something fruity.

Service: 4/5

Wait time: 3/5

Environment: 3/5

Drinks Quality: 3/5

Drinks Quantity: 4/5

Price range: $60+ pp

On a busy Friday afternoon we decided to try out Pinky's but once we got there we realised it was in Tyler street garage.

Pinky's one hot mess is in the same building as Tyler street garage, perhaps just a new feature on their menu?
Full of business men and women catching a quick bite and catch up with friends its still a nice relaxed bar setting.
Burgers were smaller than expected but, we had ordered the Mexi Chicken and Beef burgers with crinkle cut fries on the side.
Even though these burgers were small they held a lot of flavour. Mexi Chicken was slightly spicy and tangy where as the beef burger was not my favourite.

All in all for a quick lunch Pinky did well for us.

Not too sure why Pinky's gets a separate listing from Tyler Street Garage, since it is right in it.

Burgers here are like large sliders, taller than they are wide, and held together by a skewer. They try to be "gourmet", so the beef one had some kind of honey mustard smeared in the bun, while the vegetarian burger had goat's cheese with beetroot and brown rice. Pretty much what you might expect from bar food. The beef patty was not medium rare.

The onion skins were pretty tasty, but coated in a thick batter which felt a bit oily.

This place is a bar, not a foodie destination, but you can still have a satisfactory meal here. We have only tried the burgers, so can't speak for the pizzas we saw a couple of other tables having.

Burgers were nice & had good ingredients, but for the price, they are a rip-off, you'd need 2 to make a lunch. I got the beef burger for $13 off and it was the circumference of a Mc'D's burger & apx 2x the height. Any smaller and you'd have to call it a slider. You could go to chargrill across the road and get a burger of equal quality but 3x the size for 1/2 the price.

A nice place for drinks on a Saturday night! It's classy and filled with great attentive staff! This drinks are a bit more pricey and you need to get in early before all the freshly legal 18 year olds get in there lol
My favourite drinks to get are vanilla galliano and coke; apple martini (for when I feel like being a classy bish) and jager bombs. After ordering a couple the bartender will usually give you a discount too which is great!
Also a great effort to the staff, last night my brother was attacked in the bar and they helped him out so much via the ambulance and taking care of him in the mean time. Really .. they didn't have to but they did. I will definitely be heading in and having lunch there often and leaving them some big tips.

We loved this place..the views from the rooftop were special. We were 5 for lunch with an overseas visitor and found the service we received was pleasant and helpful. We ordered a variety of entrees and salads to share and afterwards dessert and coffee. The plates of food were generous, varied and tasty. This was my second time there and the menu had changed. I'd return in a heartbeat. Thank you.

A really nice little place to have lunch if you're hanging out at the bottom of town. The place itself is really large and there are plenty of seats and tables. The staff are very kind and regularly check if everything is going well. Tge food itself is very yum, although a little bit pricey, you really do get what you pay for. Definitely check it out when you have the time and money. Woof.

There's a lot to like about Tyler St Garage, however, I still walked away annoyed and feeling ripped off. The roof top is great in the sun, decor is nice and food is good. But the service was slow, inattentive and rude. The music was far too loud for an early evening dinner. They brought out the wrong drink, and tried to charge for both the actual order and mistake that wasn't touched. They also mislabeled the price of wine. There is a reason that this is the place you go when everywhere else in Britomart is too busy - there are better options out there.

Tyler St Garage is essentially a bar that does food bloody well. Located in an old "garage" in Britomart, it's lucky enough to have a rooftop garden bar that overlooks the harbour. It's a great spot to while away a lazy Sunday afternoon with one of their delicious cocktails or hard shakes.

I've tried their pizzas, salads and smaller tasting plates - think tapas but on a slightly larger scale. All have been delicious, especially an incredible Asian-inspired tuna salad that sadly is no longer on the current menu. The burgers are also famous - basically this menu is great for sharing or simple, easy staples done well.

The wait staff are ridiculously good-looking and helpful, which makes dining here a pleasure. Check it out next time you're heading to or from Vector, or looking for somewhere airy in Britomart. And make sure you head up to the rooftop garage before it fills up!

Went there a couple months back on a quiet Monday evening on a first date. I hadn't been there before so choosing the venue seemed risky but ended up being great as the rooftop area with the harbour views was a hit. Service was good, beer was good overall - great place

We stopped in for coffee. Great little spot. Upstairs is pretty cool with it's harbour view.

Staff friendly and helpful. The coffee was meh. Maybe a bad day for it. Everything else suggested we should return at some stage.

First time we have been there. The food was really very good (and we are fussy!). It was a bit weird that we were sitting on a couch with a low coffee table even with booking 2-3 weeks in advance...but not that big a deal given the food and service. Will definitely return.

Dropped in for lunch on a Tuesday weekday, and found they were doing half-price deal on their gourmet pizza; this was an AWESOME thin-crust creation with bags of flavor, so my partner and I were happy campers as we shared a cocktail jug and sat outside in the sun watching the world pass by quayside. Place seemed very popular with business-types. Also Tyler St delivered the most friendly service we received in the three days we dined out in Auckland. I'd certainly go back!

The food, venue and service were excellent. The only fault I had was I booked online as suggested and didn't hear back and our names weren't registered when we arrived. Because it was early it wasn't a problem and we had no trouble getting in, but I felt if the Internet booking doesn't work, it should be suggested as a booking option.
The guy suggested I would be better to phone, which I would do next time as would definitely go back.

Coming to Tyler Street Garage was a spur of the moment decision and was a great one at that. We shared a meat platter between two which was the perfect size and very tasty.

Well done Tyler Street!
What a way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon. It was my husbands birthday and having left an establishment earlier in the afternoon because of it's bad service we came here.

What a refreshing change!

The service - the food - the drinks! The highest quality!
Even though we couldn't go to the rooftop as there was a private funtcion this didn't inhibit our enjoyment. (Not even the fact that we had to leave our lovely pizza as the fire alarms went off!) We were in fact suitably looked after for our inconvenience.
What a lovely, lovely place and what great, knowledgable staff!

Two thumbs up!! :-)

A small group of us had our mid-winter Christmas drinks at Tyler Street Garage. We had booked upstairs which is the place to be with a view of the harbour and a large open fire.

The service from the team their was very good and they kept the drinks and food coming.

The winning menu item was the pizza's with there thin crust.
