I know Antoine's is an institution. And I know it's been around for 40 years. But it just didn't do it for me. The food was fine. The service was fine. But just fine. The place was pretentious from the get go. You have to ring the doorbell to get in for God's sakes. We did genuinely enjoy the food... More

It's our second time here and we didn't experience any negative issues about the service given by the staff. Although the food and wine are expensive (we paid $100 for the wine) we will come back and try the other food on their menu.

Appalling service Worst we have had for years if not ever! Had to fill my own wine glass which was served room temp (sav b) and had to ask for an ice bucket to chill it down to a drinkable temperature No tea or coffee offered while 4 out of 6 people ate dessert! Not once were we asked how... More

If at all possible this restaurant is getting better and better. The food is awesome. Wild Venison was perfectly done. There were plenty of choices and the Nostalgia Menu was just that. Some of our table had items off this part of the menu and loved it. As usual Tony came out to chat with us after the meal. He... More

Food was fantastic, wait staff severely let the team down. During the meal it was hard to get Simone's attention then when it come to payment time it took for ever, when this was pointed out to not be an ideal customer experience we were told we have been doing this for 43 years and not about to change. Then... More

This restaurant has been going for over 40 years. We go there for birthdays and celebrations. The meals are cooked from scratch (unlike many restaurants that seem to just buy all the components and assemble the plate). There is a second menu called the "nostalgia" menu which has favourite meals that have been cooked for years. Antoines suits a mature... More

I thought the food was very good however the service is really bad. You wait and wait while pretty much being ignored. The wine list is ok not great. After a couple of hours we skipped out without coffee or dessert simply because we knew it would take another hour. My beck hurts from looking for the waiter

The old villa-style setting, with a number of rooms and a courtyard make for a very attractive setting. However, tables do need to be an appropriate size! The table for our group of six was in one of the bay windows and was such a tight fit that the waiter could not walk around it, thus having to lean across... More

This restaurant has been around for 43 years, and I got the feeling that we were getting a 1970 Auckland experience. It was just missing the prawn cocktail starter... Of course, you are getting a 'full service' restaurant with fine food, but it's the details that aren't quite up to scratch. The steak was 'very slightly' overdone, although my wife's... More

This is a place I try to get to as often as I can when visiting Auckland and each visit leaves me more and more eager to come back.
