    Service is always exceptional and a great place for a coffee, lunch or a quick drink.

    Saw these guys were in the Metro top 50 restaurants so thought we'd give it a go.

    Pretty good food and the service was also pretty good.

    Had the arancini balls & salmon as entrees. Salmon was definately our best dish.

    Had beef ragu & pork belly for mains. Lemon tarts (second best dish of the night) & tirimasu for dessert.

    Really great evening. The restaurant was nice, and had a good ambience. The food was great. The service was really good too. Not too over the top, but always there and attentive which seems to be hard to come by in Auckland lately.

    I was excited to try this place as the restaurant looks beautiful + inviting but won't be in a rush to come back sadly.

    The best part of the meal was the foccacia bread that we had to start, it was so soft and fresh. However, everything we ordered was a bit underwhelming. The Parsnip Tortellini pasta was far too thick, chewy and undercooked. The Braised Angus Short Rib Fusilli was very salty and was quite a simple dish, it needed another component. The texture of the Meat Pie Croquette was unus

    Felt like an inconvenience. Was seated next to the toilets and asked to be moved to another area, restaurant was half empty. After a very poor customer service conversation they eventually lets us move saying we had to be out by a certain time. While we were there the restaurant did not get much busier. Service was rushed. Thought it was us but couple next to us mentioned how rushed it was. Staff running around fast which makes for a uncomfortable experience, that rushed 2 sets of glasses where – show

    Okay so, we arrived by 3:30. Got asked if we are here for lunch, of course not so we said for drinks and nibbles. 12—15 mins get menu almost thrown on the table. Had to ask for cocktail menu. Again wait for 10 mins. After ordering cocktails asked for food/ snacks menu. Waited for more then hour no one interested to take order for food.
    Might as well pay from Monopoly money. May be other people here were paying with real money from the treatment we received.

    Excellent service. Lamb ragu is really good

    Great staff, excellent service, perfect place to dine in.

    Me and my GF had an impromptu lunch date, the place look so inviting with winter sun going through the window.
    We had an amazing salad and tasty croquettes and the selection on wines pretty good too.
    We were served by a great staff! Definitely won’t be my last.

    Rude Maitre D who deigned that 8 people at 630 on a Thursday was too many for her bar (there was nobody else there). Plainly doing really well in hard times so don’t need the support. Best go elsewhere like we did where you’ll be welcomed with open arms and have a WAY better time than you would here.

    Went for lunch yesterday having had some good experiences here before. Firstly excellent service and surroundings. But we won’t return sadly. Prices are steep and we were disappointed indeed with the food — my coastal lamb was tasteless and the very pricey venison porterhouse was chewy and gristly. Best part of the meal was the focaccia bread.

    Kitchen closed at 8.45pm for one diner.

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere.

    Told we can’t eat have a pre-dinner drink with a 16 and 13 year old. Both parents and granny present. Look in the window and there’s a toddler in there with their parents. Which is more likely to annoy other guests?! Won’t go back- poor form and these places that moan about patronage in covid just aren’t adapting

    Amazing food and exceptional service! Very impressed!

    Great food, friendly efficient service. A lovely dinning experience.

    Great service and amazing experience. A must try in Auckland!

    Went here on Friday and was much better than expected!
    The snacks were well balanced and delicious and you can't go wrong with that amazing steak of theirs! Cooked perfectly and one of the better ones around town. Hard to order more as was so full.

    On a negative, the lamb ragu was very sweet and returned it. It was going to be my lunch and had a bite. The espresso martini tasted like watered down coffee with no alcohol.

    The service was great and remedied things quickly. Just had a wine as
