With hand on heart JSH is a 'chop house'. But without a doubt the very best steak house I've been too. Stunning aged meat, carefully selected cuts, service that compliments the surroundings. I grow prime beef on our farm in the Waikato as honestly JSH is up there with the best meat we keep for ourselves. The meat is complimented by classic sides delivered up a few notches on the norm. Highly recommend the scotch cuts. If you plan ahead (24 hrs) get the King prime: unbelievable!
Cheers JSH; keep it up!

If you are looking for somewhere that has a real passion for the best cuts of beef then you should consider this place.
Jervois has an understated decor - all wooden beams with an understated English Country Pub feel to it. The service is exemplary but note there are not many menu options for the non steak members of your party.
Try the beef tartare as a starter its superb.
The wine list is good but note it is expensive - the cheapest options start in the late $60s or early $70s

At about 4 pm we made a reservation at Jervois Steak house for an early dinner on the same evening and they agreed if we would leave the table within an hour and a half. No problem. We sat at a very romantic table by the upstairs window. The menu offered many kinds of wines by the glass, and my wife chose a light-colored botrytis wine which was excellent. We ordered pork belly and a 6 ounce Savannah beef filet with truffle bernaise sauce. The beef was melt-in-your mouth delicious with kumara and pecans, and the price was right. They had no wi-fi for guests We had sticky date pudding with salty caramel and butterscotch pudding. Also delicious. The service was professional, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed Jervois steakhouse so much that we ate at their Queensland restaurant the next week. We feel that both restaurants are outstanding.

Went here for the first time based on its reputation as one of the best steak restaurants in Auckland. The first thing that made me do a double take was the price of the steak. The very cheapest is in the $40 range and that is solely for the meat. We ordered sirloin on the bone as well as a prime rib. Neither steak was that great, in fact both were very average. I have eaten much much better steaks in Sth Africa and Amsterdam that are less than 50% of the cost here. All the sides were nice, the sauces good and the service was very good. If a restaurant is going to charge the prices that they do here, then ensure that the quality is roughly aligned to the price.

Hi PaulDAmsterdam,

Thanks for taking the time to review us. That's not what we want our customers to experience but I can assure you that we serve the best quality beef that we can find in NZ and I understand that in some other countries might be cheaper.
Apologies if the food didn't meet your expectations.

Regards

Matteo
