Absolutely love this place! Have dined here on multiple occasions and every meal/steak has been beyond excellent. Jervois seriously has some of the most deliciously cooked and prepared steaks I've ever had. The dining atmosphere is relaxed and intimate, and the service staff outgoing and professional and are an added highlight to the dining experience. I recommend trying the waygu... More

Originally seated next to the kitchen which we found too bright. No problem when we asked if they had any other tables we could move to. Upstairs was much more relaxing and subdued. Waiter was excellent. He took time to explain how things worked and the menu. We all enjoyed every dish. I especially liked my generous portion of lamb... More

The lamb rack I ordered was excellent. It's not cheap but I think it was worth it. Service was a bit slow though, there was a large group that night and two waiters probably wasn't enough.

Visited this restaurant with my parents during during our trip to Auckland based on my local colleague's recommendation. We were very optimistic and thought we could have a table for three without reservation because it was on Monday. However, when we arrived at the restaurant before 6:30pm, there was no available table at that moment. We felt so sad about... More

Ambience is intimate and the decor is quaint. Food was very well prepared, large portions with a wide array of partners and sauces. Service was excellent and served with humour and grace. Prices are reasonable and worth several visits.

We were here for a birthday on Saturday night with a very large group. As we sat down, we were told a group as large as us wasn't something they normally did.

Hi JohannesandUlla, thanks for taking the time to write this review.
