The food was wonderful the waiter service was great , the evening was made slightly disappointing by the General Manager attitude , she stormed around slopping water into people glasses , no Greetings , no smile, a face like thunder to all customers , this was valaentines day and a busy night and a time to impress customers and maybe get them to return , but she made every one feel unwelcome and at the end of the night she sat in the corner counting the cash fro the till infromt off all guests like Scrooge ! It maid you feel like you should leave even though the place was still open . Dissapointed Ona special night .

Still hungry after dinner .... not impressed I took 3 guests from the Middle East there for Dinner on Friday 15th @ 8.15 pm . The ambiance was lovely , however the scollops which I ordered were over cooked, small and oily . There was a pool of oil on my plate too ( probably from the chorizo ) . I'm just glad my overseas guests enjoyed their meal because I didn't' enjoy mine. One good thing about their service was that they were able to book us a table for desserts at Milsse near by which was fabulous. I hope they can improve their cooking and quality of scollops as it was extremely disappointing. I had to go find food at another shop afterwards as I was still left hungry.

I loved everything about my experience with Ortolana. I live in South Auckland rarely dine in the city, so I consulted Google and there were so many positive things about Ortolana, and I loved that I was able to see the menu online, photos of the restaurant and book online too! I arrived on time but my friends were about 15 mins late. And though it was quite busy (Sat night!!), the waiters kept refilling our waters and asking us if we wanted drinks and though it would've been irritating (I've worked in hospo), everyone was so courteous to us (sorry for the delay!). Walking into fancy places (which I count Ortolana), always makes me nervous. But the servers were so lovely and made me feel like I could truly relax. Now, the star of the night - THE FOOD. My goodness. Every combination on the menu sounded so good! Since I was on a budget, I ordered only a main (with a side of bread). My pipe rigata was amaze. I've never had such zesty/spicy pasta before and it was so good I needed to order bread to soak up the sauce in the bowl. There was so much flavour in each bite. I doubted the size of the meal. Then by the end, I was stuffed. I had a bite of my friends dishes (the ravioli, the crumbed chicken, and the steak) and they were all so delicious. Our dinner party was for my best friend's hen's night and she wants to bring her fiance there. All in all, the service, the food, the atmosphere, the booking, the everything was so lovely and it made our bride-to-be so so so happy, which made it even better for me. Thank you for the amazing night xo

My companion said the market fish was nice but the crayfish ravioli very disappointing - basic & bland. Excellent service, location & atmosphere.

Waitress was very knowledgeable about the wine list and let us try a couple before choosing. Have been before and will definitely return to try more delicious things on the menu.
