This is one of my favorite restaurants and I dine out very often. The staff are particularly good. Very professional but friendly. And importantly the Champagne flutes are well polished so wonderful effervescence! I cannot bear flat Champagne! 🍾🍾🍾🥂🥂🥂

Service was rather slow considering the restaurant wasn't busy. I find your wine is very expensive especially when I know what I can buy it for from the wine merchant/supermarket. I know for a fact that some of it is over three times as much as I pay. Twice as much is acceptable but you go a little too far.

We had a private room for 14 guests for a family celebration. Service was individualised to our group, wine suggestions were excellent, as was food and timing. Couldn’t have been better. Please pass this on to the person/people looking after us.

We dined in your pop up Igloo, what a beutiful experience. The Igloo itself so well thought out, warm, cosy, decadent! The service was Flawless. Food absolutely delicious and a good selection on for the 4 course menu. A delightful evening. Thank you.

Great food and service. We ordered a small Seafood Platter as our starter and Scallops and Sea Bass for our main. All the dishes were really beautiful and fresh. We really enjoyed it all.

There are three things to note about the dining experience at Harbourside: 1/ The service is superb. The staff are well trained, friendly, and attentive. 2/ The location is superb - who wouldn't want to have a great view of Auckland's inner harbour with all its hustle and bustle? 3/ The food is excellent, though a little more adventurous menu items might be nice as well. The quality of the food is fresh and tasty, and much of it is presented in a straightforward and uncomplicated way, but having few more dishes on the menu "for the adventurous and those who want to have their tastebuds challenged/assaulted" would also be cool. Request: maybe attach a tick icon and a (P) icon next to menu items which meet certain criteria for healthy eating and the currently popular Paleo diets. I had a guest who is ruthlessly pursuing Paleo (I'm trying to calorie count as well), so a bit of guidance from the chef would be nice. Those minor quibbles aside, I like to bring guests to Harbourside since its a top experience all round, and I will be continuing to do so after my latest lunch with business colleagues.

Everything was amazing - cool concept, great service, delicious food. Call me a snob, but I was a bit disappointed that the entire decor of the igloo was from K Mart! Otherwise great! Still give it 5 stars.

The person who greeted our group was not overly friendly or welcoming, however our waiter more than made up for it, he was amazing. We booked Harbourside for my Mums 70th and she was made to feel very special and everyone had a wonderful evening. We will definitely be back.

We were completely blown away by the amazing food, ambience and fabulous service we received. Your seafood platter ... WOW! It truly was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be returning. A huge thanks to the staff for making our friend's BIG birthday so very special. We would highly recommend your restaurant to family, colleagues and friends. Thank you so much!
