Description: "Opened Spetember 3rd, 2011. Not be confused with a restaurant called "The Grill" on Greys Avenue".

The restaurant has an elegant setting, with low lighting and private booths (if requested).
The service was outstanding - the waiter knew his wines, was friendly and had good recommendations about the food. The wine was absolutely divine - as was the food! Steak tartare and snapper and scollops were fresh, and full of flavour and were big portions.
My husband had the duck liver parfait which was creamy and a little sweet and a 400gm sirloin cooked to perfection. So handy to sky city - and located right beside the main entrance to the grand hotel.

We had a beautiful meal here last year. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Both starters were 10/10 delicious. We opted for the scallops and clams. Great selection of wine too. We both got steaks for Main course my partners steak came out slightly overdone. Our waiter was so professional he took both the steaks and out sides away and Brought fresh ones. The duck fat chips and the broccolini were delicious. Would go back if I was in Auckland again.

The food and service was great. The duck pate and lamb shoulder were absolutely delicious. We came back for a second meal which was also nice, but the pate and lamb were absolute highlights.

We managed to get a booking at late notice, and couldn't be happier with the experience. The food was sensational (beware the dangerously yummy duck fat chips), and the service was even better. I don't usually focus on the service, but Tylor achieved the perfect balance of attentive without ever being intrusive. He really made the night. Congratulations.

We have been coming to The Grill since it opened – as a couple – with guests from overseas –with clients- and hosting in the Private Dining Room upstairs . Liam & the team are great hosts, and those of you that have dined at Rockpool in Melbourne and Sydney will know The Grill gives that fine establishment a real run for it’s money
