Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We popped in after dinner last night. The live piano and intimate space tempted us. The staff were so helpful. I had 2 of the best cocktails ever! Clever recipes. Thanks for your hospitality! We will return when next in AKL

An amazingly beautiful little bar in Parnell. It's small bar but very nice and cosy.

The cocktails are really nice.

Perfect for date nights or catching up with friends

This was our first, much anticipated visit to Pineapple on Parnell. To begin on a positive note: our cocktails were excellent: beautifully presented, our bartender seemed knowledgeable and we enjoyed our drinks very much.

We stopped in at around 6pm on a Saturday night. The bar was moderately busy. One of the staff greeted us with 'Sign the (Covid) register!' over his shoulder and indicated we should find ourselves a seat.
We were given cocktail menus soon after seating ourselves, but after about 10 minutes of waiting were unsure if we ordered at the bar, or if someone would come to take our order. We went to ask, and were told our drinks would be taken from where we were seated. It would have been nice to know that at the beginning. I have to say at this point we felt that service was somewhat lacking. The staff were not unpleasant at all, but we were not made to feel welcome.

We had both read the piece on the menu telling us that the sign of the Pineapple was a guarantee of a special night, and we would be assured of being hosted elegantly. We felt this statement was a lofty aspiration rather than an actual fact at that point of our evening.

We loved the idea of the dress code that is supposed to be a feature of this bar, and had ourselves dressed with this in mind. However, we were surrounded by people in jeans, sneakers and puffer jackets. There are plenty of bars in the city where this is just fine and there is nothing wrong with casual dress at all, but if you promote a dress code as an interesting point of difference then please follow through with it. We ended up feeling a little let down after anticipating a special bar that is supposed to do things a little more elegantly, but this is just another bar.

If you prefer a chill place in a hectic business focused suburb of Parnell, this is the place to go. Staff are extremely down to earth, the way they serve you is more friend-to-fiend based style. Reasonable price; great location; tasty drinks & down to earth staff - I’d totally recommend this place.

This is a small bar that you could easily walk past. Beautiful decor and a wonderful ambience. The cocktails are innovative and interesting. They also on some nights have life entertainment with a piano player. An all round great night.

A group of us stopped by for cocktails after our dinner. Possibly due to it being a little early- 9pm we found the bar a bit flat and lacking in atmosphere. Service was ok but it would have be nice to have been acknowledged by the staff when arriving and leaving. Cocktails selection was good and ranged from $20-$24
