The food here is absolutely amazing. The Game Bird Terrine was great. The prime rib was one of the best tasting steaks I've ever had the pleasure of eating and well worth the booking in advance. The creamed spinach was legendary as was the chocolate fondant and espresso martini. The service was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and accomodating.... More

Great experience. Top notch steaks. Wine a bit pricy. The wood burning fireplaces were great ambiance enhancers. Service was excellent. Tip seemed expected, which was OK for us.

Like all top steakhouses around the world ,,they know how to charge , and this is not a place for cheap eats ..but if you want a... More

First time in Auckland and staying here for around 3months and am fairly sure we'll not visit here again. Our meals were decent, service was decent but our server seemed very disconnected from the task at hand. The atmosphere and ambience were non existent. The decor is looking very tired and very drab. Felt like we were in a retirement... More

Haven't been for ages. Wouldn't go again. Same old fit out, understaffed, steak was fine (but not exceptional as expected) but very expensive when you add sides. Asked if I had a coupon on arrival (that in itself shows something and perhaps why others review it so well.) The owners should put money back into the business or reduce the... More

Hi Kerry K, Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate any constructive feedback and we understand that the restaurant could look completely different from day to night time. The dimmed lights and brick walls, according to our previous reviewers, make the place very romantic, something that possibly in day time could be missed. We offer quality... More

We were a group of 12 diners, most of us had the Sunday Roast special, which offered the meat options of chicken, pork and lamb. We had roughly an even split of pork and lamb. This included a heap of sides like duck fat potatoes, swede and carrot mash, yams, silverbeet and yorkshire pudding. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with the... More

Have been here many times, it is one of our favourite Restaurants that we take our high end clients to, and Jervois Steak House never fail to impress. The food, the wine and the service can not be faulted.

Had dinner here via the TripAdvisor recommendations and was not dissapointed. From entry, service was attentive. We had a drink in the bar before dinner, barstaff are friendly and wine cocktail menu is good. The restaurant is in a lovely building, with out table upstairs. Steak was cooked as requested and all food was lovely. I would definitely recommend.

Ahh what's not to like about Jervois steak house ! We ordered the King signature steak for our male guests and for us ladies it was the wagu scotch fillet. The boys were so excited as it had been slow cooking all day - and they weren't disappointed ! You could cut it with a butter knife - beautiful !... More

The restaurant is close to our hotel so we have to give it a shot. Nice restaurant with everything you would want in a steakhouse. The service is great, quick, precise and attentive. The cut (steak) is just awesome. I order prime rib. It's just exactly the way I want. Some seafood dishes like fresh oyster and crab cocktail are... More

Description
“The steakhouse to end all arguments”The Jervois Steakhouse or JSH to its regulars opened in 2006 with a 5 star rating as New Zealand’s first premium steak restaurant and continues to exceed customer expectations. We could, as most web sites do, talk about ourselves in a very complimentary tone, but guess what - we are not the hero, the meat is.So here’s just a tipple of why customers love the Jervois experience:Steaks to die forSimply the bestFood heavenBest steakhouse in AustralasiaHighly recommended, highly anticipated and even more highly appreciated
