Had the bone in fillet and creamed spinach and absolutely loved it. Probably one of the best steaks I have had in a long, long time. For dessert I had the chocolate fondant, which was good. The atmosphere is nice, but a little cramped, with tables a bit on top of one another. I highly recommend this restaurant and can't... More

This definitely rates as one of the best steaks I have ever had! They are great cuts of meat and cooked to perfection- could not recommend highly enough. The service was great and the setting not your typical setting. Set in a historic house the layout is different but adds to the experience. Make sure you book a table!

We went to the Jervois Steak House without a reservation and were lucky enough to be accommodated. Everything went smoothly from the moment we were seated. Our waiter was full of personality and a professional through and through. He explained the menu to us, steaks are cooked to your liking and plated alone. Side dishes, or partners as they are...

Invited out for a friends birthday. Struggled to find parking and once we arrived our table wasn't ready for the time we booked. With these initial hiccups out of the way we sat down and and were inundated with a speech from a waiter about the current specials, clearly a new employee and was under pressure but managed to have...

Hi Mathew B, What a real shame that you did not leave us satisfied. Unfortunately parking can be difficult in most places around Auckland although evening parking is normally pretty easy around our area. I'm not sure what time your friend booked the table for, perhaps they invited you early to enjoy a drink at our great bar before being... More

Went here as a group of 3, have wanted to go for a long time, and was not disappointed, the restaurant is quite small and cosy. The kitchen is right on the diningroom downstairs, so there is an element of theatre to the whole experience. The steak was superb, the sides were excellent also, best of all the staff were... More

Difficult to choose a meal from the menu, as there is a wide choice of steaks (some other dishes for variety) but I went for the 250g Eye fillet, and it was the best steak i have ever had (I've had a few). This restaurant serves the steak alone, so sides are essential, better suiting a group to get some... More

Hi Murray, I guess your heading says it all really. The suggestion of coming with a group is spot on, it allows you to sample more of the fantastic side dishes and the greater wine selection. All the best for the new year and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Best regards, Jeff Bull Restaurant Manager The Jervois... More

The restaurant was fully booked when we popped in so we booked for the following evening - they suggested an earlier time, but made a real effort to fit us in later when we said that was too early. The draught beer was good as was the wine and there was plenty of help with choosing the meals and selecting... More

We ate here and managed to not eat steak, lovely salmon and also beautiful rich clam chowder. Cheese board was delicious. Great wine choices, staff very informative and friendly, felt the restaurant was a little dark and tired looking. Would recommend this restaurant as a try if you are in the area.
