We had a well-deserved Aotea Electric Auckland ladies night out on Friday. All 11 of us were very happy with our food and drinks, but were mostly impressed with the service provided by Cindy. She was very attentive, providing fast and friendly service, with a very good knowledge of the menu. Stay awesome Cindy! (And good on you management for sending a link to complete this review, otherwise to be honest, I probably wouldn't have gone to the effort and you'd never know how 11 people felt about such great service!)

Lara Campbell was amazing. She went the extra mile to make sure we had the event our way and even helped us with some activities we were struggling to run. Well done Lara and team.

WE enjoyed our evening the staff were great. It just got a bit hard to hear conversation by the end of the evening. But it was a good fun atmosphere.

I have been to the Merchant many times and as usual the service and food were great. My only gripe is that I ordered 2 blush bubbly wines which were meant to be a $7 special as per the promotion showing on your TV screen and was charged $8.50 for each drink. I did not see this until I got home as did not have my glasses.

Always good food and atmosphere. A bit noisy today due to a large table, so should have sat outside. Apart from that great lunch!

Overall the food and service was pretty good. It did take a while from the time we ordered until we received our food. Other than the wait we had a great time.

Excellent service and food. Had approx. 20 people attending for lunch based on platters, pizzas and sharing plates and was very happy with everything.

Came out with 3 friends for a birthday dinner. Food was OK. Mix up and delay to be seated, even though it was booked and we checked in 15 minutes before our reservation time. That been said our front of house person gave excellent service and we enjoyed his chatter.

Whoa, really whoa! This could be the best western-style restaurant/bar I have ever enjoyed. Unlike some other restaurants which have reasonably high ratings zomato and actually suck, this one truly deserves a better rating. With it unique atmosphere, friendly service and excellent food, it has earned number one on my list. I am happy with every dollar I spend, amount of food is great, taste is not questionable. I would really recommend this place!

A big thank you at the team at The Merchant for hosting our work social drinks last Wednesday. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We also appreciated the food quality and the set up that they arranged for our group (which encouraged a lot of socializing etc)
