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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Splendid 8-course menu. The salmon and wagyu was delicious. The drinks are great too. Loved the negroni and wines. The service is awesome and the restaurant is great.

Excellent restaurant, great six course dinner with wonderful wine pairing. Small dining room, which is wonderful, no noise. On par with one star Michelin restaurants around the world.

Quite honestly our all time favourite restaurant in Auckland. Dined here at least 7 times over the years and not once been disappointed. The main highlight is the food, which is different every time, and handled with such style and care. The wine paring is...interesting and guaranteed to surprise. Service is impeccable and attentive. Shout out to our recent meal with Ben and Thomas attending to our table and helping create yet another memorable evening.More

It had been a few years since my last visit to Paris Butter and expectations were high after having a great experience previously. My partner and I booked the six course degustation for her birthday and from the moment we were greeted until the moment...we left, the entire evening was absolutely top notch. The wait staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was other-worldy and the drinks were amazing, with a really great wine menu in particular. Well done team for providing one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.More

This was a splurge for us on our last night after a three-week holiday in Australia and New Zealand, and we were disappointed. We had the Evolution menu, a six-course meal. The presentations were beautiful, and the dishes were good - but not out-of-this-world magnificent....Which is what I would have hoped for when spending $464 NZ on a meal.More

The food was some of the best I have had, if not the best. First course was 3 small bites, with flavours that just popped and filled your mouth with wanting more. Bread was delivered by an amazing gentleman (Thomas) who was new and was...just delightful. The bread is freshly made, super fresh with home made butters. The chef came out multiple times to explain the food we were eating including the most amazing Wagu farmed in the Waikato region. We had wine pairing and each glass was expertly explained by the sommelier (Ben) and paired perfectly with the food. Wrapped up with amazing dessert and dessert wine pairing. Would we go back? 110% and are booked to go back again in February. Amazing team, amazing head chef (Zennon) and amazing restaurant with amazing atmosphere. Highly recommended.More

We visited Paris Butter for lunch on a Friday. We had the place to ourselves, and ended up having the most outrageously luxurious, sumptuous, heavenly experience. The service was outstanding - friendly and welcoming but not intrusive or overbearing. The food was out of this...world - quite simply the best food we've ever had. We had the Evolution six course menu. Each course was packed with layers of flavour and texture. The presentation was beautiful, with each dish looking like a work of art almost far too pretty to eat. Art for the eyes and the taste buds. We're just amateur foodies, but we marveled at the consideration, and superlative skill that had gone into the dishes to make them so incredibly delicious. A real Epicurean experience, and we can't wait to go back.More

Still my favourite restaurant in Auckland, and the competition around here is tough. We enjoyed an amazing 7 (8?) course dinner when Paris Butter collaborated with Sorrell, a Michelin starred restaurant based in San Fransisco. The two fine dining establishments complemented each other perfectly and...it was one of the best meals of my life!. The staff were a delight, as always, the food very well thought about and exquisitely well presented, not to mention absolutely delicious. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a dinner at Paris Butter, you will not regret it!More
