My partner and I both felt this was one of the worst restaurant experiences we've ever had. We came specifically for your seafood and dining experience in order to celebrate a combined birthday. We arrived at 7pm for our reservation and departed by 7:45pm it was so terrible. The seafood was terribly prepared (anything that required cooking was dry and overcooked, which is a travesty when this is prime ingredients like Moreton Bay Bugs which where charred and dry. Prawns were soggy from defrosting and the mussels were chewy and tough). The oysters were poorly shucked and many of them had broken shells. We didn't want to eat anything else because we were so concerned we were going to get food poisoning from what was on the seafood platter and what we'd consumed. The service was poor and unattentive...fine if you're not spending +$200 on dinner out, but if you're trying to set your restaurant apart in a positive way, the service didn't meet that standard. We were disappointed in the wine and when we expressed this, the waiter simply said he can recommend others but didn't offer to take the wine away and replace it. If you are genuinely wanting feedback, then I will happily give it, but I won't waste anymore of my time if this is just a survey that nothing will be done with.

Our lunch was wonderful, our waiter was attentive, informative and funny. The food was beautifully presented. The champagne was perfectly presented in the mumm glasses which made drinking it seem even nicer ! The staff presented me with a happy birthday dish also. Was a fantastic lunch and lovely afternoon.

The food was delicious. The plates could have been a trifle warmer. Our waitress was very friendly and most knowledge re the food and wine list. A perfect spot to enjoy the beauty and comings and goings on Aucklands harbour.

Beautiful setting and food to match. The West Coast whitebait was an amazing dish. Our overseas guests were impressed with the friendly and attentive service.

Let down by wait staff & also table position in front of cold draughty service door, which was un-necessary since restaurant was less than half full Bar was also understaffed For first timers who booked a month ahead it was a poor performance What can you do to bring us back? that's what we want to know

We went to have my daughters 18th birthday as a nice family meal together. I was really disappointed as the waiter was very rude to my 14 year old son.

We had a fantastic evening - great food, fun and superb service. We would love to thank our waiter, whose name, sadly, we did not ask - the lovely Italian gentlemen who looked after us as we were royalty and his best friends at once. Thank you and we will be back!
