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.
Wait time: 3/5
Drinks Quality: 3/5
Drinks Quantity: 4/5
Price range: $60+ pp

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. Staff very nice and friendly checking back to see how we were enjoying everything. Great place to go for drinks and snacks on Friday night! Very recommended

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.
