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.

Don't go, scammer and the food is despicable. The waiters are unpleasant, and are rude. Hygiene is also to be reviewed, there were plenty of dead ants on the seats.

Food was great but service was chaos - meals delivered to wrong tables and charged for wrong table.

Prices are five star but the service and food is not. We also found when trying to give feedback and not asking for a discount we werent being listened to and there was some defense instead. Beautiful decor with so much potential.

Overall the meal was average and overpriced. The buttermilk chicken burger was almost inedible, the slaw bitter and the pear and Parmesan salad did not have any sort of dressing. The desserts were delicious. The service was prompt but I do dislike being asked if...I would like to leave a tip which puts you on the spot when paying the bill. I would not by choice recommend this restaurant. The prices are five star restaurant prices but the food is not.More

I didn't understand bad reviews first because the place looks great and cozy,staff is very friendly. I decided to go for dinner and ordered chicken Cesar salad. Being a food blogger I know price/portion/quality situation very well. Wow just wow. I guess the owner had...this kinda thought: let's open big beautiful place, let's make the prices sky high because why not this is New Market. Quality?! Who cares hey this is New Market! Now,chicken Cesar- 5 pieces of salad, bits of bacon, croutons, size 6 egg and BINGO- few slices of CHICKEN HAM! They say it is chicken breast in the menu. Size of this salad is like kids portion. Now the most important part- PRICE IS 30 DOLL!! 30. bloody.dollars . All I wanted was to get up and leave..I have not felt myself as ripped off for a long time. And when I told staff it wasnt good their reaction was " haha sorry we will pass your feedback thanks " I couldn't believe my eyes I paid as much for that miserable dish. Only because it is New Market they think they can serve whatever for the prices that even Ponsonby will raise their brows! Disgrace! Yes,believe reviews and better spend your hard earned money somewhere else if you going to spend this much.More

Went with a group of custs / work colleagues on a Monday evening. Very good and friendly service. All the meals, especially the steaks were “spot on” and the fries (chips) were next level! Would definitely recommend

Three years ago 2020 I booked a table for 8 adults for my birthday which had to be cancelled because the first Covid hit. On Saturday 19 August 2023 I finally got my wish and and all eight of us had a marvelous time. Service...was great and the food exceptional.

Went to New York Grill for a Valentine’s Day dinner. Extremely disappointed in the whole experience from service to food. Food was tasteless + bland and not worth the price. On top of all that, found a piece of long hair in the sauce of...our food. Told the waiter and he cleared the table, apologised like nothing happened and did not tell the manager of the restaurant. When we went to pay we spoke to the owner and told him what had happened and he didn’t seem to care very much. Definitely do not recommend this place and won’t be returning!More

Maybe I'm out of touch but $59 for a scotch fillet steak which was lovely but it came with nothing! Piece of steak on a plate which was just unusual even if just for decoration. $10 for any additional item. No bread available. Gotta say...the steak was lovely and the service great!More

Arrived at rooftop garden at Westfield Plaza and decided the New York Grill steakhouse looked inviting. Advised by Maitre D that restaurant very busy and that there was quite long wait times. I explained that we were hungry and didn't want to wait for meals...so we would try a different restaurant instead. Our group of four started to walk away but she called us back and took us to a table situated by servery. Once, seated we all thought that something had changed regarding wait times as I had explained to the Maitre D that we wanted to eat promptly. On the strength of that our bread starter was delivered very quickly (we had ordered 2 x bread starters but waitstaff advised very big and that the other one could be served with mains - this sounded reasonable). On reflection, all the bread would have been good as we waited for over an hour for our meals and we were hungry. Anyway, the meals were delicious and worth the wait, lovely ambience, warm & comfortable and really relaxing after a long drive to Auckland, really great to have that time with family for a catchup. So we were very happy and enjoyed great company, nice wine and delicious food. Good prices.More

The good things first; the food, once heat issue resolved (more to come on that) was absolutely lovely, as was our wine choice. The not so good started on arrival so our first impression wasn't great. We walked through the door and waited at the...desk, only to be yelled at by someone who we assume was the Maitre'D to follow her. OK WE will come to YOU!!! I tried telling her we had a booking for 1pm and were very early however she was more intent on me choosing where we were to sit. The wait-person we had was lovely however spoke sooo quietly we could hardly hear her. Starter of garlic ciabatta was lovely. There were 3 of us so decided on the New Your Gill shared platter for 2 between 3 plus some sides. When the platter arrived the food was cold! The chicken was actually cold, along with the ribs. (these were the only items checked so the lamb and steak possibly were too. They were taken away and re-heated; meanwhile our sides are sitting in front of us getting cold so we had to start with these. Platter was returned and the food had been reheated and replated. Food was lovely...all beautifully cooked. Once finished, we wanted the plates cleared and fresh wine glasses however we could not get our wait-person's attention. One of our party got up to go and find someone and discovered the woman who we assume was the Maitre'D sitting at the front reading a magazine. She came down to clear and apologised as they were very short staffed!!! The restaurant wasn't full however if they were short staffed why was she reading a magazine!!! I totally understand the short staffed issuel I work in hospitality also but if there are only 2 of you working you both needed to be on the floor and making sure all tables were being attended too. On more than one occasion we had to wait for service or to order. Not sure what was happening with the platter being cold...I know a couple of other tables were being served mains at the same time so possibly the kitchen was short staffed and our platter had bene plated too early? NO explanation was every given. Overall a very average experience; considering it was a birthday lunch for all 3. And although the restaurant wasn't busy, attention to detail is still important. WE have all decided we won't return for a while...More
