Only thing is because they are so popular it was quite a long wait for the... More

Chefs worked really hard and results were good, good as in meeting the profit margin and good as in nice flavours, food looked pretty, but the place, not for me, no ambiance (what's that) TV screens, a glam sports bar.... sorry Foodstore very expensive & 4 things on the menu request were just not available..

There were 4 of us for dinner - 2 visiting from overseas. Food was nice and the entrees were especially tasty. We shared a selection of entrees. Staff were very friendly and added to our enjoyable experience there.

Been here a few times and never been let down, my husband especially loves their creme brulees, their prices are a little expensive, but not overly, but hey, you get what you pay for, once you have tasted the food, the price doesnt become an issue, well worth it.

Three of us spent a leisurely Saturday lunch at the Foodstore. I always try and go if I am visiting Auckland as the food has always been really good. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed the meals : fish of the day, steak and the Pork 'boil-up'. The entrees were yummy and so were the desserts. The service is efficient... More

The Foodstore located in the Viaduct Harbour precinct is a restaurant not to miss! The location is right on the waterfront and the vibe inside is casual and funky. The waiters ooze a real passion for the food and with an open kitchen and TV monitors with CCTV focused on what's happening in the kitchen, you really feel part of... More

An impromptu late morning visit to the Viaduct, with coffee and maybe a nibble in mind. Decided to venture in and decided to have a lovely brunch. Very good service, excellent food & great company

The kingfish ceviche is worth your time as is the vanilla poached salmon. If the southern oysters are in season they are not to be missed. Solid wine list and great staff. Cool venue, not a romantic restaurant but a good foodie location.

After having spent a six week business trip to Auckland I was able to try just about every restaurant. This is the best in Auckland. Best on the menu will be the Market Fish of the Day especially the John Dory.
