Had a great dinner, unfortunately it was almost empty due to Covid. Had the 5 course menu, worth every penny. Our host is also the chef and took the time to explain every dish. Would have loved to go back but ran out of time.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Number 5, last night. We were lucky to be served by the owner, Jack Costi, and his lovely wife. Jack's passion for food and his attention to detail is amazing. Even the crockery and glassware are beautiful ! Plus, his mother-in-law created some of the artwork in the restaurant. Number 5 deserves to be visited by anyone who wants to enjoy delicious, creative, beautiful food in a stunning setting. I dined at Number 5 in it's heyday... and, today it is EVEN BETTER than I remember! You will NOT be disappointed! We will return!

The Lamb dish was delicious and very well cooked but the inclusion of the Tuatua didn't really add anything to the dish

We visited on Valentines night and enjoyed every minute of our dining experience. The Manager Liedo abd his two staff were great despite the fact the staff had only recently started and also only arrived in the country. A warm friendly atmosphere and a special touch a red rose on each guests table setting.

This was our first visit to the “new” Number 5 and wow - it was exceptional - gorgeous food, stunning decor that is faithful to the “old” Number 5 and, best of all, attentive and charming service. We will see you next time.

In the past three months we have dined at several restaurants of a comparable standard to Number 5: Lillius, Sid at the French Cafe, Siddart, and also Cassia, which is a much more casual place. Casual, but Cassia does a very good set menu with wine matchings, so I've included it. Cassia's offering is excellent, but it's a bustling, noisy, dimly-lit basement room that is rather challenging for an elderly person - it's very difficult to hear each other and the wait staff. All the rest have calm, luxe dining rooms. At Lillius, The French Cafe and Siddart the serving staff are professional and expert, but we particularly enjoyed an excellent rapport and the personal service offered your Maitre d'/Sommelier/Waiter. He is outstanding. He really made our night. He is a master of New Zealand wine knowledge. Your food offering, too, (as with all the restaurants mentioned) is excellent - a great choice of dishes, beautifully prepared and served and, I must say, generous servings. And Number Five's panoramic outlook across the city is a real treat. It's interesting that all these restaurants are in rather unassuming parts of town.

Our 40th wedding anniversary celebrations were fabulous, thank you so much! Delicious food, great wines and brilliant staff - friendly and thoughtful. Thank you for accommodating the dietary differences at times and setting up the audio stuff, and being there for our every need! Mild disappointment between quantity of pork belly size compared to generous steak menu. Everyone raved about their meals though. The kale was delicious! Thank you for everything.

Dinner was outstanding. The chef did wonderful job. He is the new owner of the restaurant and definitely takes things to heart. We are visiting but would encourage anyone to go here.

My husband and I ordered both of the tasting menus (3 course and 5 course) to share and the chef was kind enough to split everything for us on two plates. The food was all amazing, the service wonderful and the course descriptions were interesting and helpful. If we were here longer in Auckland, we'd definitely go back! Well worth the price!!

Fine dining is not a common occurrence for me, however I found Number 5 to be welcoming from the first interaction. Amazing service and impeccable food. I did not have a meal, I had a journey through the tastes and delights of New Zealand.Thank you so much for making my first experience of fine dining memorable. I highly recommend this hidden gem.

It’s the summer holidays in New Zealand, so my wife and I were fortunate to get a reservation during our Honeymoon. The restaurant was intimate and gave us the best culinary experience we’ve ever had. The service, ambiance, and food were all spectacular. We did a customized tasting with wine pairings and the beef carpaccio, Kingfish, Burrata, and Wagyu hanger steak were some of our favorites. The wine pairings were expertly matched as well. Also, don’t skip dessert! We can’t say enough positive things about our experience and would recommend to anyone.

Exquisite food. We had the vegan 3 course meal which was a clever combination of flavours. Our wine sommelier had a great knowledge of wine was able to bring us a bottle exactly to our taste. Quiet time of year with a new owner but I am sure once they are discovered will be well supported.

Royal service and an orgy of flavours and textures. The colours and presentation were a work of art in particular the carpaccio. The mushrooms taste was irresistible and matching beautifully the Maude Pinot Noir. The rose sorbet capped a sensational dinner. 10/10
