Good steak

Made it straight to the top of my Auckland steak experience. Steak was cooked to perfection, medium rare with a nice creamy peppercorn sauce, yum

Excellent staff, location, decor and steaks. Been there several times in 2014 and 2015 and been good every time. Ignore out of date poor reviews. Ideal location for theatre trip but order early to avoid stress.

Had only arrived day before and still coping with jet lag and hard day's sightseeing. This was a real find. Fabulous steak and great wine. Wait staff helpful and attentive. Put up with our discovery of their free WiFi and need to contact home. They closed up around us but still good humoured.he

We had a meal here prior to attending at show at ASB Theatre. Our waiter, Damon, was brilliant and we had loads of laughs with him. The place was close to full which is always a good sign. The food was delicious. The only improvement we can suggest is that we were left for quite a while when we arrived... More

Damon and staff are excellent. Ambience, food service, you won't fault. Wines list is quality, food recommend, dual steaks with sides were delicious. Added to all this, Damon gets on the old piano and sings requests till your ready to go home. Will return always when I'm in Auckland.

good tasty food at sensible prices BUT they actually heat the plates (rare in the 'she'll be good, eh' attitude of most NZ restaurants ) and excellent friendly staff. When busy you can wait a while so if off to the theatre (very close by) be sure to tell them!

We wanted NZ lamb while visiting Aukland and hotel recommended Tony's. It was excellent service, perfect evening atmosphere and the lamb shank dinner was slow cooked perfectly, placed on mashed potato and accompanied with al dente vegetables. They also specialize in steak. Wine by the glass was a good value, the wait staff pleasant, friendly and very helpful with making... More

Given it's long-standing reputation for steaks we were underwhelmed by the fillet mignon. The steal was not as tender or tasty as the one we had enjoyed in our hotel restaurant the night before. Also the restaurant itself was cold, we weren't the only ones who obviously thought that as 80% of our fellow diners had kept their coats on.... More

We went here as a nostalgic trip into the past - and found the décor exactly as it was thirty years ago - but what had changed was the food. We both had steaks as part of the memory trip and were really disappointed with what arrived, rather than the best steaks in town we had a pretty average meal... More
