I have to thank The Foodstore for being so accommodating on Saturday December 20th when our original booking (another venue) fell through at the last hour. There were 24 of us which they managed to fit in on a curtained outside area. Although the weather forecast was gloomy, we didn't get wet, nor was it too stuffy. Fiona did this... More

Excellent place in the viaduct. Great views food and service. Have been for lunch and dinner. I rank it top two in the Viaduct. The Fresh catch was absolutely awesome so was the traditional meat pie.

We were first timers at the Food Store. The pictures on Facebook looked very impressive. How wrong can this be. We ordered and waited 45mins for 1st dish what a disappointment. 4 tiny queen scallops with mushrooms like 4 cardboard disks. Think they were dried and half soaked just awful. My husband had fish and chips. Soggy batter, large greasy... More

We dined here for a weekend lunch on a whim recently. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, the table was in a good people-watching place, the restaurant was not overcrowded with Christmas lunch diners (yet) and the food was excellent. The only downside was a rather surly maitre d' . She wasn't very welcoming on arrival and hadn't improved by... More

Last time I was here the TVs around the place were showing what was happening in the kitchen. This time the multiple screens in the bar and restaurant were showing a muted “The Food Channel.” So what’s to hide? Apart from the bar, service was VERY slow. We were shown to our table just after 8:30 but our food order... More

We booked for 1.30pm for two for a late sunday lunch. It was surprisingly quiet for a sunny day at The Viaduct but apparently the rush was earlier in the day for brunch. Fantastic fresh local food with an awesome wine & cocktail list. Our selections included creamy Clevedon oysters and pan fried scallops for entrees, eye fillet and seared... More

From the moment we walked in for pre dinner drinks we were very well looked after. Our waiter was French and very knowledgeable in all aspects. Food was superb, I ordered my steak Blue and it was cold in the middle, pure excellence a kitchen who knows what blue means. The whole table were extremely happy with their meals. Happy... More

We come here virtually every time we visit Auckland, this time it was a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon prior to a rock concert. It's more relaxing in the day here but the food is equally as good as the eveing menu. Wow is about the only way I can describe it, as the food flavours and selections never... More

You can sit and people watch at Auckland Viaduct Harbour whilst dining on FABULOUS food. We had the oysters to start and I have to say they were the biggest ones I have EVER seen in my life and so beautifully tasty. I had duck for my main course and my husband had the tuna - both dished were exceptional... More

We went as a group of around 10 on a weekday. Whilst it was understandably busy, we had to wait over 80 minutes for the mains to arrive - one member of the group had to abandon hers and take it back to the office, whilst others had to make the tough choice between enjoying the food and being late...
