“The steakhouse to end all arguments”The Jervois Steakhouse or JSH to its regulars opened in 2006 with a 5 star rating as New Zealand’s first premium steak restaurant and continues to exceed customer expectations. We could, as most web sites do, talk about ourselves in a very complimentary tone, but guess what - we are not the hero, the meat is.So here’s just a tipple of why customers love the Jervois experience:Steaks to die forSimply the bestFood heavenBest steakhouse in AustralasiaHighly recommended, highly anticipated and even more highly appreciated

Absolutely one of the best meals we have eaten out. We found it helped to read the menu online before you go as there's so much to choose from. We chose Rib eye for two with garlic butter sauce (recommended on the menu), fries, broccoli cooked with olive oil & garlic and my husband added the onion rings. The rib... More

Thoroughly enjoyable experience for Valentine's Day ! Both steaks came cooked to perfection, great selection of sauces and the waiter was incredible at answering any questions we had about the menu. Special mention goes to Jeff for taking my booking and organising a fantastic little table for what was a busy night!

Really nice atmosphere and seating arrangement. Staff went above and beyond to give us an enjoyable experience, even moving us to a better table when one became available. Food came out quickly but there was a few things that let it down for us. The bread starter felt like it was lacking somewhat, perhaps another dip on the platter would... More

Hi Rachieno, Thank you for the very kind comments about the team going above and beyond for you. I have spoken to the Head Chef about your comments related to the breads and seasoning and we are looking into the points raised. The truffle chipotle & horseradish béarnaise sauce is a wonderful creation that must be tried. Thank you again... More

Not much to say here except that the steak was perfectly cooked and the service was very professional with an excellent knowledge of the entire menu (e.g. suggestions of sauces for each cut of steak). Same applied to the wine. In terms of price, it's not McDonalds but it's not extortionate either. In fact, the three of us were commenting... More

What a fantastic restaurant, right from the moment you walk in, interesting building full of character. The staff, genuine and seemed to enjoy their job. The variety of meat was delicious, tender and tasty. A group of 15 and all meals out on time and together. Well done and thanks.

I am such an amazing cook, so I am very picky with food. Simon Gault, your Chefs and personal service staff did it MORE than perfectly. 11 out of 10 for me.
