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

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.

Just returned from dinner at jervois. Utterly brilliant place. I'd booked via email from the uk prior to my trip to nz having found the restaurant on trip adviser.

Hi Emily, Thank you for the wonderful comments about your recent visit. Great planning on your behalf, as we are only a small restaurant and booking in early is ideal. The tea list offers a great choice, especially after an indulgent chocolate fondant dessert. Has a wonderful festive season. Best regards, Jeff Bull Restaurant Manager The Jervois Steak House p....

Never had a disappointing meal here and we've been quite a few times! Service is always excellent and food is exceptional. The candied kumara side dish and the chocolate fondant dessert are to die for. Reasonably priced for waht you get compared to other places.

Hi aucklandtraveller4, It is a real pleasure to read a comment that highlights the effort of the whole team. The candied kumara is a fantastic dish and there would be an uproar if we ever removed the chocolate fondant. Thank you so much for your continued support.

Greeted by a welcoming Maitre d and offered drinks while waiting for our table. The restaurant was busy with pre Christmas diners. A cocktail each and then up the stairs to our table. We all chose the Petite steak with different sauces and they were cooked to perfection. The Macaroni cheese fritters, onion rings and fries were great sides. Completed... More

I thought the service was really good but the steaks were not quite as amazing as I expected. I had a duck entree which was OK but I had envy when I saw other ones so probably wasn't a good choice. Overall I thought it was really nice and we had a good night but it was pretty expensive ($250... More

Hi Alex L, Thanks you for joining us at the Auckland JSH.

Rowen guided us through the perfect New Zealand steak meal. We enjoyed the duck pâté, prosciutto & chorizo appetizer and a loaf of ciabatta. We were all in for a New Zealand experience and appreciated an earthy 2010 Alpha Domus The Aviator, a Cabernet, Cabernet Franc blend decanted. Our steaks were all cooked to the perfect texture.

Enjoyed the best restaurant steak I have ever had - my eye fillet was so tender you could actually cut it with the fork, it literally melted in your mouth - I totally recommend this place if you are after a great steak meal in comfortable surroundings with fab service.
