We had this restaurant booked as a part of our new years celebrations. I had read a few reviews and was a little dubious. We wanted our dinner with family to be special and I can very happy advise that it was. The food was excellent as was the wine and cocktail selection. The service was prompt and excellent. After...

We'd heard good things about the Foodstore, so reserved a outdoor table when visiting Auckland... The service was good if a little slow, however the food was very disappointing, the portion sizes were all wrong The worst culprit was the fish and chips, his came in a paper box, I guess meant to resemble traditional fish and chips in their...

NO --because in all honesty if I'd known how much we would enjoy ourselves... More

Had heard great things about the restaurant and food here.. What a disappointment. The night started off when we arrived and were very surprised to receive a last minute booking on a Friday night when the Viaduct was so busy. We sat at a bar table, sat for 5 minutes, then had to go in and get a wine list,... More

Unfortunately this restaurant failed to deliver on many levels. Poor timing of meals; Having worked inrestaurant hospitality it is imperative that the diners always eat together. So why did the waiter bring the children meals 30 minutes prior to the adults? Additionally two of the 4 adult mains were disappointing. The fish was 'old' and the chicken dish was unimpresssive....

When in Auckland for the Rolling Stones concert in November, we booked in for a meal on the Thursday night. I ordered a starter of crab, but was told that the crab was unavailable and had been replaced with crayfish which I didn't mind at all - crayfish being my favourite!! It was delicious - had a good portion on... More

My partner, his parents and I went to the Foodstore pre a Cirque du Soleil show last September. Being amazed the first time we dined in 2013, we had to amaze his parents! And they certainly didn't fail. The service, cleanliness, atmosphere and food was impressive, and their vino selection; well that went down a treat. Would highly recommend!!! Keep... More

This is a restaurant owned by a famous chef (on tv) in the most tourist part of town, across from where the big cruise ships dock. In other words, it could have been all hype and still done alright. IT WAS NOT HYPE, IT WAS REAL! Great food and service, great views and of course great people watching on the... More
