We came here for lunch using a Grab One Voucher. The service was great - staff friendly and accommodating without hovering. Food was fantastic - Steaks cooked perfectly. The Calamari starter was so tender and juicy. Chocolate Fondant was to die for. We will be back soon.

Fantastic service, good steak, average sides. I definitely don't think this place deserves the hype it gets. My steak was cooked well but cold, the sides were overcooked and bland and the sauces were average. Desserts were nothing special. Overpriced and overrated in my opinion.

Toothfish. Doesn't any restaurant that serves toothfish just HAVE to be the best? I had a toothfish and scallop risotto but thankfully rather than trying to chop up the toothfish, they still served that as a fillet in the middle - and two scallops on the plate also had a wonderful texture. My wife had a fillet steak which despite... More

My 1st experience of the Jervios Steak House was when my wife and I were invited to a friends retirement dinner. The food and service was the best I have experienced on both counts.

Just had the most marvellous lunch all at a bargain 'Grabone' (a special price website) price. The steak - Jervois Fillet on the bone - was cooked to perfection with a choice of healthy sides plus various fries if you must. I mention the special price because sometimes these deals aren't that special or cheap. This had a few exclusions... More

I have eaten here 3 times and I have never been disappointed. The service is wonderful, the old house which is the resturant is elegant and the steak is stunning. I also highly recommend the candied kumera (traditional NZ sweet potato for those not sure what kumera is)........beautiful. You MUST book.
