Absolutely dreadful. The worst meal we’ve had in Auckland. Badly cooked food (and very little choice), incorrect order, terrible service, a cold room - and completely overpriced. We can’t understand why the Sofitel chain would allow this low standard. It was like a polytechnic training venue.
This is the worse dining experience I ever get from a restaurant within a 5 star hotel. The bread is very hard, and the foods are below average. IThe selection is very limited, and quality is low. I use to go there on a regular basis, but will not consider returning back, as the experience is very bad.
We had a magical experience here several years ago, and returned to celebrate an occasion, but to our disappointment, we found the experience lacking both in the service and in the food. Won't be returning here again sadly.
We loved the dining,, pity you lost Our reservation.
Would have scored 5 stars if only the macerated fruits and nuts for the poached pear dessert was less sweet. I much prefer the recipe used on the first day when you changed to the current autumn menu...I happened to dine at lava that Tuesday night. If I did not remember wrongly, the syrup was a lot clearer, unlike the one served yesterday. Notwithstanding this, the poached dessert was still very delectable. And the green apple, rhubarb & honey pie...it was divine! A special mention goes to Megan...such a delight to interact with....very courteous and attentive.
The service was faultless :)
Happy to pay a reasonable mark up on wine. I buy Paul Jaboulet 2015 from Glegarry @ $19.99 I was stunned that you charge $115 per bottle. Please explain.
Not value for money, we went to the Hilton on tuesday and their $29 for a 3 course meal, made the lava meal look amateur and overpriced. We were very disappointed.
Wider selection for express lunch !
A really great place for a quality lunch at business speed! Very well presented and excellent value for money.
Staff were amazing
We were there for our anniversary and started with a drink in the bar. Great service and very friendly and welcoming. We moved through to Lava room where all the staff where terrific. They keep an eye on the time as we were attending a show at 8pm. Brightness our waitress was excellent and food recommendations were a real winner. We look forward to coming back.
Another nice evening. Lovely staff and great service
Good value for money. They made us feel special!

Good food, great staff with million dollars view
Amazing staff, very friendly and the food is just amazing.
Everything was perfect thanks team for a lovely service my friends and I really enjoyed our dinner.
The menu we saw online was slightly different to the one we got on the day. Is it possible for it to be updated? If there were more vegetarian options, that would be great
