“Solid restaurant with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This is a very well run restaurant with high standards of professionalism all round. Found it perfect for business meetings where the service was extremely pleasant and attentive and the food well-executed and nicely presented. There is also a wonderful breakfast here which a superb selection of hot and cold items which made it perfect for breakfast business meetings. And their flat whites were the best I tasted in Auckland.

“Great dining experience !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Is not the first time I dine at The Café but is the first time at Tapestry. Brand new name and brand new delicious menu. It was superb ! Had a catch up dinner with a dear friend and both had entrees before our mains. What can I say ? People... you must try the Tiger prawns with crispy kumara, satay sauce, shaved coconut and coriander salad. Absolutely out of this world ! The coconut was the magic ingredient here and the coriander, perhaps, not for everyone but was fine for me. Followed by the main with King fish, green lip mussel ravioli, green harissa and tomato salsa. Sauvignon Blanc from Marisco vineyards was a perfect match. Really, very but very nice ! My compliments to the Chef. Almost forgot... you must try the home made butter with bread and olive oil. First class.
And this fabulous food was enhanced by the service of Cherie, an absolute darling.
It doesn't get better !

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Delicious fresh food with plenty of flavour. Small menu, but i think this is good to do a few things well than a huge number of things averagely!
Large group of american tourists who were very loud were dining there the night we dined. It didn't bother us but the staff were wonderful and very apologetic and asked if we wanted to be moved to another part of the restaurant., the chef also sent out a complimentary starter too to apologise. Even though we weren't worried! :)
Breakfast was about what you'd expect from a hotel, however they did have some made to order things which was cool. And plenty to choose from from the buffet section.
The service we had was faultless. The staff were all amazing and friendly.
Thanks so much :)

“Not what we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We were a group of ten that dined here for lunch recently. We had booked well in advance. Unfortunately our food orders took an hour to arrive and drinks that we had asked for either never turned up or we had to ask the waitress a couple of times as to where they were! A couple of the meals were cold and we sent one back. The waitresses were lovely and were doing what they could...in saying that, there were hardly any other diners here so we were a bit perplexed as to why the wait was so long. We mentioned the above to the lady at the desk who said she would take note of it.

Dear "Sandygle",

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tapestry and for choosing to dine with us. While I am pleased that the team took care of you, I am sincerely sorry that your overall experience was not what it should have been.

As you are aware, I am unable to tell from TripAdvisor which guest has left a review. I would be grateful if you would kindly email me your contact details on c.saunders@pullmanauckland.co.nz so I may look into this further for you.

With kind regards,

“Easy place for lunch ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Service is excellent but food came a bit slowly from their Power Lunch menu I thought. I had the grilled salmon which was a bit cold but otherwise good. Chairs are surprisingly uncomfortable too.

Dear "smackinlay",

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review on The Cafe Restaurant. While I am delighted that you experienced our true Pullman hospitality, please accept my sincere apologies that there was a delay in the food and the grilled salmon was slightly cold. I very much hope that we delivered our promise however of ensuring that the Power Lunch experience was enjoyed within 45 minutes.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon. Please do not hesitate to contact me c.saunders@pullmanauckland.co.nz if you wish to discuss your experience further or if I can be of assistance with a future booking.

Kind regards,

Carly Saunders
