About Jervois Steak House (Queenstown)

There are steak houses, then there are steak houses and then there’s Jervois Steak House.

The menu is a veritable who’s who of meats in all forms, sourced from the very best beef and lamb producers. The quality beef is carefully selected from the highest pedigree and defined by breed and feed. So you will find dishes like the Signature Prime Rib, selected from the finest 150-day grain fed Black Angus that has been dry aged then patiently roasted in their special oven. Or the Jervois cut eye fillet on the bone, farmed on the West Coast, which gives this animal an unmatched tenderness and flavour that can only come from cattle fed on New Zealand’s magnificent grasslands.

True to the great steak houses of the United States, Jervois Steak House is not solely about red meat. World famous Red King Crab, Oysters, Calamari, Prawn Tacos, Heirloom Tomatoes and daily chicken and fish specials, all take their place on the menu. It’s not just the menu that delivers the style and authenticity. An industrial staircase greets you on entry and timber floors and brick walls together with open fires leave you cocooned in an earthy warmth, that screams hearty food and rewarding big flavours. The spacious, but intimate bar, is the perfect space for that pre-dinner aperitif or cocktail and of course an after dinner cognac, port or coffee. On a sunny afternoon you can step out onto the lower steps of Brecon Street and sip an icy beer, stationed at a well positioned leaner where you can view the leisurely activities that Queenstown is famous for.

Complemented by attentive and highly knowledgeable staff and a wine list that pairs a wide range of quality varietals and blends with the extensive menu, you will be hard pressed to find a more complete dining experience. The Jervois Steak House is testament to both the quality and excellence that the Nourish Group demands of the ingredients and the sheer expertise that is exhibited both front of house and in the kitchen.

Julian was very attentive and friendly. A bit fast for some of the other tables in terms of enthusiasm and energy but we thought he was great. Steak was amazing as always but the carrots were burned in spots (like carbonised) but we had no prob eating around those spots. The mashed were a bit over worked.

A little more menu variety would be nice (maybe a venison option).

I apologize that I can't remember our waiters name...he was French, a great sense of humor and very honest (he'll change as he gets older lol...as I did). Cannot fault the food or the service in any way, really great effort to the team, your hard work and dedication deserves a shout out( I have worked and managed 5+ hotels and lodges for 20 yrs albeit many years ago). Was so refreshing to see your waiter so enthusiastic about his chosen career, he deserves a pay rise 👍. We will be back....not a threat but a promise 😁

Only negative was some wait staff either not knowing what they were serving you and telling you the wrong things or just saying nothing at all.

Service was great. We had the degustation menu with wines for 2. The salmon entree was a wasted effort - spiciness completely overpowered the dish. Gnocchi was delicious, Steaks and accompaniments were cold,

We had a great evening and were very well looked after by our waitress. The steaks were cooked exactly as we asked and the sides were yummy. We see JSH as a special occasion place for us as locals.

Hi there: Many thanks for your very thoughtful hospitality for our dinner the other evening at Jervois, your recognition is sincerely appreciated. The service was outstanding, the genuine warmth of the hospitality by the entire team was great to experience and the food was exceptional. All in all, we had a truly wonderful evening. It is nice to have the pandemic limitations behind us so that we may experience more of the fine Jervois masterful dining in the near future. Kind regards, Mike & Bill

This was our first time here, the waitress was so helpful picking showing us what the different cuts of steak were. I ordered the Petite ribeye and my boyfriend got the eye fillet; we were both very impressed with our food - the meat just melted in your mouth. 10/10

The food was perfectly cooked, our server was attentive but not overbearing, and had a lovely way about her, and the overall evening was fantastic. I will absolutely be recommending Jervois Steak House to others and I’ll be returning next time I’m in Queenstown 😊

Really enjoyed our dinner - food was fantastic, best steak I've had in years , my wife loved her gnocchi. Couldn't fault anything. Service was quick professional and un-intrusive just the way it should be. This was our second visit and I'm certain we will be back many more times again. Michael & Katie Eremin

We had a variety of age groups at our dinner and without exception everyone enjoyed their dinning experience and the service was excellent, on time, and done with graciousness. We were a large group and had a memorable time. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Mari
