About Harbourside Ocean Bar Grill
Our menu is classically inspired yet always creative, our wine list is elegant without being complicated, and our service is both polished and friendly. What sets us apart is not only our location but also our ability to make everyone feel welcome and a part of the upscale-relaxed atmosphere so rare in Auckland.
Our steaks were quite tough despite being order and it appeared cooked medium rare (although mine was probably slightly over). The hand cut chips were not very crisp and were a bit of a disappointment. There is a comprehensive wine list which is a big place and the location and atmosphere is great. Service was average despite it not being a very busy lunch time our food took a long time coming and I ordered a coffee which took over 15 mins to arrive and I had to leave without getting it and cancelled as I left. I had previously had a great experience here - the food quality was definitely better although service was still a bit slow.
Awesome working with Ksenia to arrange this event. Really accommodating team for our requirements.
Great view and superb food.
Very good experience - great food & staff.
Amazing service! Delicious food. Highly recommend.
Harbourside is always excellent and fantastic staff too
I celebrated my 50th birthday in a private room at Harbourside Ocean Bar Grill. It was such a fabulous night. The staff were very helpful, leading up to the event and on the day were very accomodating in letting us set up the room for the theme. Matt was a star in assisting with set up. We duly arrived for drinks and canapés on the terrace with the staff being very attentive to the guests drinks. Canapés were delicious. We then moved in to the Q room for the main function. Our waitress Jen was fantastic. I simply can not recommend the venue enough. The food was delicious and the drink plentiful. Everything went to perfection largely due to Jen - it was simply a fabulous evening. The feedback from my guests has been nothing but positive. It was the best birthday I could have asked for. Thank you Harbourside team.

Excellent location, awesome waiter serving us and great food. Will be back and I highly recommend Harbourside to others! Five of us were there for a business lunch.
Always consistently high standard of food and service. Many thanks for a great lunch again. A pleasure.
Was very disappointed with every single meal we ordered. For entree we had atlantic scallops which were just the smallest scallops from gilmourse. with 2 very little scampi. Also we had prawn cocktail. Not what you would expect from that dish. Couple of lettuce leaves that were actually bitter and no avocado. And yes in the description there was moreton bug. It was very hard to find it. Just very few very tiny pieces. We did not complain but it was just funny. Its better not to put in the description at all For main we ordered curry hapuka. Its a nice dish but its not something you expect in fine dining restaurant. Ordering that i expected a fish with some touch of curry. Like asian fusion dish. As a result it was just a curry dish quite spicy (by the one i was not even asked how spicy i want it) that you can have at any asian restaurant or takeaway. At the end of all my husband had flounder. In the menu its 500g flounder. But after we ordered the waiter came and said that you dont have 500g, you only have 600 and 800 and it will be a little bit more expensive. We said its ok. In the menu 500g flounder is $39.95. When we cam to pay the price for 600g flounder was 54.90 (nearly 40% more for extra 100g of one of the cheapest fish on the market). Of course we raised the issue and were told that its been charged by mistake and should be only 10% more. We have been charged correctly as a result but it is very unpleasant experience when such a high restaurant trying to rip you off And by the way side dish was mixed leaf salad and the leaves were bitter as well
Beautiful, relaxed lunch with great service.
Beautiful spot, beautiful food.
Love the food ,love the atmosphere , love the services! David serves us and he is amazing ! Highly recommended !
Great service, good and especially the wine selection. Overall a fantastic time and would recommend Harbourside to anyone
Service and food pretty much exemplary. We had four starters and three sides of which six dishes were absolutely delicious. The only disappointment was the small portion of tiny scallops and one scampi tail: yummy but far from generous and probably suffers by comparison to the likes of the squid and dumplings. Would recommend Harbourside (have done so several times today) and will go back.
The fish of the day for the main was over cooked and therefore dry and tough the duck didn’t have the fat rendered and therefore was unpleasant to eat. The starters were fantastic. The waiting staff were not as attentive as they should’ve been for a restaurant with a very good reputation. On the other hand the Batman was excellent. Room for improvement 14.5/20.
