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.

My wife and I hosted our staff for a Christmas dinner to celebrate the year. We were treated extremely well right from the moment we arrived as we were escorted to our large table in a private area. The whole evening was filled with brilliant...food and drinks along with top class service. It was our first visit but won’t be our last.More

My partner had previously dropped in for lunch a year or so ago and had told me she had had not only an excellent meal but had been impressed by the quality of service. Consequently when we found ourselves in Auckland we stopped by for...lunch. I had to agree with her: waiting staff were superb, wine list was not only interesting but excellent and the menu accessible, varied but created with thought and care. We had lamb kofte, taramasalata, carpaccio and parfait: all presented beautifully, cooked to perfection where appropriate and superbly balanced. The service was friendly and in fact the staff remembered my partner from her previous visit as they had chatted at that time. It was a gentle, memorable no fuss lunch with a relaxed Mediterranean feel where nothing was any trouble and the customer treated as a valued friend rather than simply a cover. We will definitely be back next time we are in town.More

On a Remuera corner - previously the long standing Banque restaurant. Very popular with Remuera locals. Modest and minimal fit out with enough change to give it a fresh and more modern feel. Good menu and wine options, perfect for afterwork, a meal out with...the partner or groups. Bookings recommended especially for Thursday-Saturday.More

Have eaten here previously and the food was very good, the same cannot be said of todays experience. Food was flavorless, the kingfish crudo was literally chunks of kingfish with no seasoning or flavour, sitting in oil. The same applied to the squid no flavour...at all. The waiter asked how everything was and we provided honest feedback in a polite way, they just didn't care unfortunately. Wine was also over priced.More

We stopped by for dinner and were led to the dining area in the back. The restaurant is fairly large and there was plenty of street parking around the area. Both food and drink options did look quite tasty. we grabbed a few things to...share. I started with the Sorrento spritz and that was quite nice. All of the items were quite tasty and were made well. The pork chop and fried chicken were nice as was the spinach pie, lamb meatballs and burrata with carrots. The gigantic squid was the most interesting dish for me. Crispy and tender with a delicious sauce. We were wanting to try dessert but couldn't get anyone's attention so we just went without. Quite a nice restaurant with interesting and delicious food.More

Truly amazing food and service. If I lived in Auckland I would come more often! Every single dish was excellent, the lamb was a standout as was the tuna.

Last week my girl friend dragged me along to Siso whereby I have to confess I had little to no interest in going. She said "The reviews are fantastic and lets give it a go" Wow what an awesome spot - Food was sensational, awesome...service and a super nice buzz. The measure to a good new fins is "Would you go back". In fact we loved it so much we took friends there on Saturday night. New find and super impressed. Happy to have a new restaurant to enjoy just up the road.More

This time wife and I went at night having been to lunch some time ago after it opened. The menu has ben upgraded and the service has matured. I had the scotch fillet and wife had the cannelloni stuffed with beef cheeks. The steak was...perfectly cooked and tender and the cannelloni unctuous and rich. I, as a non salad enthusiast, reluctantly agreed to sharing the little gem lettuce, pecorino, shaved apple, celery, toasted walnut vinaigrette. I've never included a salad in any of my reviews but have to make special mention of it. Outstanding. Well done team and thanks to Lilly who served us with warmth and professionalism.More

Amazingly Disappointing. Headed in tonight with a group of friends, including a couple of old Banque regulars who hadn’t been back as Siso. Excited by the NZ Herald writer Kim Knight’s review and the thought of what she described as being “exciting food” with “service...blips” it appears we must agree to disagree. We decided to arrive early for the Facebook advertised “cocktail hour” which we almost had to demand to get advised what was included, and were swayed away from the small plate specials for happy hour as “you’ll want more to eat than that menu can offer you”. In actual fact we only intended on having a couple with a cocktail before we then hit the dinner menu, again after some form prompting the waiter trotted off to get us something to look at. The gin cocktails and small plates were a nice start, but the service didn’t just have blips, it was just not good and needs some serious work. We then ordered a decent selection of the large and small plates and sides, many of which were recommended by the waiter who described everything as popular, lovely and highly recommended standing awkwardly over us while we made our decisions, clearly needing to turn our table on a timeframe. The short rib pappadelle arrived first, 2 portions vastly different sized where I was glad to have the smaller one as the larger serving was mostly chewy sinew, something the “lovely waiter” did not question when he took it away in a pile left on the plate. Next the spinach pie and the mushroom linguine which were both OK but nothing you’d recommend to your friend or encourage someone to go and try, however the fries and broccolini were both very nice and sadly the highlight of the meal. The roasted cauliflower buratta was ice cold and therefore lacked any taste. The salt and pepper squid would be more aptly named squid - BYO seasoning, im not sure the waiter had ever tried it to sustain his high opinion. Next came the 2 portions of Octopus and things went from bad to bloody terrible, it was so overdone it could be boxed and sold through OfficeMax to keep your posters rolled up. We highlighted this to the waiter no less than 3 times before he finally said he would check with his “friend the chef” and by the time he returned to check if we would like it replaced with something else we had finished eating so declined and the full plate was taken away, but not from the bill. It’s a great space and could be amazing, but you’ll have to vastly lift your game to come up against the likes of other Mediterranean’s within a 10 minute drive. Service 2/10, Food 3/10 (1/10 if you take price into account, perhaps reviewer Kim Knight didn’t receive a bill)More

Wonderful meals Exceptional service from all the staff. On a cold Auckland night it was quite warm in the restaurant The entree’s we had were well presented and a delight to eat - Spinach Pie - one of the best experienced. My scrapper on a...bed of artichoke was also a wonderful experience But just like the previous iteration - Banque - the restaurant is extremely noisy with sound bouncing off low solid ceilings- one shouldn’t have to raise your voice or lip read!More
