Very good service. Food for me was average. For the entree. hubby had the "Crumbed pork bite' and I had the 'mushroom croquette". Tasty enough but it could have been presented better. Both came in a very small dish (like a sauce dish) on its...own. Don't need more food on the plate, just presented better - may be in a bigger dish with a bit of flare? For mains we had the crispy pork and the duck leg confit. The skin on the pork was thin and crispy. The duck confit was ok but I had better at the Villa marie restaurant in Mangere and Soljans Estate cafe in Kumeu. Both of us had the butterscotch pudding and that was good. No wow factor but overall the food was ok.More

I went there with my husband for a couple of drinks on this long weekend. The place was really nice and we could enjoy the sun on the deck. Brendan took care of us during the whole time we were there, really kind and professional....We will definitely coming back soon.More

Waited 30min for drinks that never came and ended up canceling them. Food seemed like a bargain but it’s literally just one single tiny piece of food. The food itself was lovely just far too small. We decided to leave and when trying to settle...the bill they were lovely and even took the drinks off our tab. But when we came to pay they overcharged us $80 and didn’t realise until we pointed it out the manger didn’t even seem to know what she was doing and tried to give us only $40 back. In the end I definitely won’t be going back thought points to our waitress who was trying her best to fix a situation that clearly wasn’t her fault.More

Perhaps NYE not the best time to review We chose the glass goose as it was near the Sky Tower offered food and most importantly we could reserve a table. Out of ten the food was a solid 7 with a great selection of bite...sized plates. Service was even better brilliant 8 and this despite it being frantic and busy Not so good was the loud DJ who made conversation impossible . Overall compliments to all the staff but not a great place if you want to talk to your fellow diners.More

Business function after work for Friday drinks/snacks. Lovely platters to share. Plenty of food to accompany the beers and wine. Friendly and prompt service. Great outdoor area to relax in, loved the decor on the day, but inside felt a bit stuffy and hot maybe...due to size of our group +12. Would benefit from fans to help with the airflow for inside patrons. We had a great time. Thanks team!More

A group of 7 of us decided to try here for the restaurant month and were very impressed with the 3 course dinner. The tacos were light and fun and the duck was delicious

Waited an hour and a half for two small plates and a main (was not full and plenty of staff). Food came out cold and the main consisted of a single piece of pork with pumpkin puree. Small plates were a couple of pieces of...cold halloumi and a stale bun with cold pulled brisket. Is expensive coupled with the need to probably have a second meal with the portion sizes. Worried as to how they handle a busy night. Regret choosing this place.More

Recommended by a friend. Called to book - delightful experience. Parked at Sky City and it was directly outside the building. Fabulous location. Fabulous facilities - inside or outside options. Waitress/Manager was exceptional! Wish I had taken her name. She was helpful, knowledge-able about the...menu, attentive but also only there when needed. Friendly and cheerful. Our food was delicious! We chose the $40 Restaurant Menu. It offered 3 great courses - 3 different options for first two courses. 2 choices for Dessert. The energy/vibe was relaxed but vibrant. Highly recommended :) :)More

We booked a table for dinner after a show at Auckland’s Sky City, it was a disaster! As it was Restaurant Month in the city they had a special set menu alas half the items were sold out which was poor planning. The service was...very slow, not enough staff and those they did have were undertrained and overwhelmed.More
