Amazing restaurant and an amazing location. The prefect business or private lunch or dinner location. It's one of my fav restaurants in Auckland. The service, atmosphere and value is great. Highly recommended.
Lovely anniversary night spoilt by your lovely staff
Express Lunch menu was delicious but portions a bit on the small side. Dessert was really yum
This moment was perfect
Great service and friendly team.
Sofitel Auckland is my favourite Auckland hotel of wonderful service, food and bar. Maria and all the Sabrage bat staff are great who make you feel so at home and comfortable 10/10 city hotel.
Great food, service and ambience
Fantastic service and food. The signature dish of lamb was superb! Will go back next time we stay at the Sofitel
I am so pleased that I have chosen Lava dinning for my anniversary date night. You made our night so special with your surprises. Special thanks to all the staff and the chef. Shay and Mina
Oysters were not fresh which we told the waiter but got no feedback from kitchen. Some of the mains were small and only average. Certainly not good value.
Great services and Nice Food. I visit Lava Dining at least twice per week.
A great restaurant with great food and wonderful service.
A lovely evening spoiled by my date getting bitten badly by mosquitoes. I guess that is the downside of the waterside location!
Staff very attentive, friendly and accommodating.
Food was delicious and environments was beautiful. We had stay there for a few hours and the waitresses were very helpful, cheerful and service were superb!!
Everything was perfect!
Welcoming and attentive staff, and well presented meals makes this a very nice dining experience to celebrate a special occasion. The extra touches were much appreciated.
nice food, good service, good environment.
Excellent food and service and friendly staff.
Excellent service and food. Always like going to Lava resturant.
For NYE the atmosphere was a bit subdued. I had the wine pairings and would have liked a little information about the wines.
Very disappointed the standard of food has dropped well below expectations. Used to dine often at Sofitel where the food was always excellent but sadly no longer. My eye fillet was tough and basically raw when I asked for medium rare. Upon recooking it was so tough I couldnt even cut it! I gave up an swapped for scallops and was astonished that a main course could be so small, just 4 miserable scallops which did not even have the orange parts. They seemed processed out of a packet and tasteless. Also the combination with apple sauce doesn't go well with seafood. I have had scallops at other establishments as an entree which were tastier and larger than this serving. Shocking to be honest.
Everything is as great as last time
Booked online but when we turned up they had no record of the booking - could have been awkward but was handled very professionally. The 30 minute express menu is usually great and most of it was (duck breast yum, hazelnut pannacotta yum) but the beef tartare appetiser tasted a bit ‘off’ - prefer the salmon tartare.
Still one of the best dining experience!
