Went for brunch on Mothers Day (granted they were a bit busy but there were spare tables) - ordered drinks which finally arrived after 20 minutes and we walked out after an hour (after overhearing the table next to us say they had been there for an hour 15 and the one next to them had been there even longer)...

Marvel was highly recommended by our guide. We arrived at around 1pm which was their peak hours. We passed through the back entrance and was told by their manager that the place was full. Moving towards the entrance of the place, we found a place to sit fortunately right in front of their bar. When the manager came by to... More

Also we got the steaks with red wine and everything was done to perfection. Place was quite crowded as most of the public were there to catch the sunset and... More

Marvel you must be joking Certainly nothing marvellous about my visit but first let’s find something positive as its location in the exciting Wynyard Quarter is brilliant and their layout is inviting and looks (looks) cordial. But and many huge buts. We should have been alerted to early signs of trouble as the staff were only seen at the counter... More

We often dine here when in Auckland. Staff are always attentive and professional and food is always a high standard. The shift from fine dining to high level style has worked well. A bit expensive but probably no more than you have to pay now in Auckland. Will try their smoked meats section next time!

We dined here over the weekend in hope of receiving a nice meal on the waterfront. The burger I ordered was takeaway style, slapped together with a few fries but more frustratingly the service was incredibly disappointing - Long wait to be acknowledged (after wondering up and asking if its a order at the bar kind of place), long wait...

Was looking forward to a birthday lunch to catch up with friends and family but was disappointed especially by the service. We were met and sat in a tight space considering there were 8 of us. We were handed menus but had to ask for the drinks menu and then waited and waited. Our order was finally taken and then... More

Let me start by saying that the food today was up to the usual high standard and arrived in a reasonable timeframe. That was where the high standard started and finished. Being a Good Friday we expected the place to be packed but in honesty it was half full (or perhaps in this case half empty?) There were quite a... More

The vision of Marvel Grill is to provide the best New Zealand products, give attentive and knowledgeable service and to provide the best waterfront location for our customers.

We strive to locate and discover the story of all our produce providing only the best purveyors and traceable responsible products.

Our spotlight is on the animals from the land and sea and where it has been derived from. We showcase the farmers and fishermen that have passion and devotion to their animals as well as fine products offered around the country.

We have one of the best waterfront locations to enjoy the freshest seafood coming straight off the boats right in front of the restaurant.
