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.

5 star restaurant. We had dinner here 3 nights and breakfast 4 mornings. The food at dinner was amazing. I can only guess that the chefs are very creative and each little component of the dish compliments the entire plate. Over our 3 dinners we...had entries of octopus, fish crudo. Mains were venison, lamb rack, fish of the day, duck and pea agnorotti? All fantastic and worthy of high praise. Majority of time we were looked after by Mikaela and Ben who were both excellent at their job and extremely knowledgeable. I'm sure both will go a long way in your organisation. Well done and lived it all.More

We were absolutely blown away by the service at this restaurant. My husband and I were actually staying at another hotel across the road, but had already eaten there and were not very impressed so we walked across the road to the So. From the...moment we walked in, we were really impressed by all of the staff, Michaela, Ben, Kiara, and especially Florian the manager. This place provided a level of service that you never see in New Zealand. Everyone was so welcoming, professional and helpful. We took all of their advice and recommendations on what to eat and our meal was fabulous. We can’t wait to go back again.More

Well located at the top of the Sofitel hotel in the Auckland CBD, we enjoyed a commanding view of the harbor in an elegant environment. This is the second time in a month that we have eaten here. Both times the knowledgeable Michaela expertly explained...the menu, wine choices, and served us with just the right amount of presence. She was ably assisted by the rest of the service team. All were pleasant and professional. The food was delicious, beautifully presented, and of the highest quality. The fresh oysters were accompanied by a delicate granité that enhanced, rather than hid, their fresh taste. The charred courgette dish was fantastic on its own. The fish of the day was moist, perfectly cooked, and a good-sized portion. We splurged on the Chateaubriand, which may have been the most tender beef I have ever eaten, anywhere. It was perfectly cooked to medium rare and still managed to be crusty and perfectly seasoned. The accompanying truffle butter was almost “gilding the lily”. The ‘all about chocolate’ dessert satisfied our chocolate craving, emphasizing the chocolate notes, without being too sweet. We sometimes hesitate to eat in hotel restaurants, but we were so impressed the first time that we ate here that we booked again for tonight and are glad we did. We aren’t even staying at this hotel and we highly recommend this restaurant. Top notch in every way!More

Oysters were not that great, but service was good, food took a while to come to the table, they should just leave the basket of bread instead of serving it to guests, the fish was good!

I have been to Harbour Society a few times and have had the pleasure of eating from the new menus that is changed up every so often. Todays menu was absolutely delicious! Definetly recommend the ribeye! As always the desserts are just delicious (i am...a dessert fan) I love the food here and so does my partner. The view was great on the 15th floor. I would recommend this place for the food and overall vibe. Aside from the awesome food. We had wonderful servers who were friendly approachable and knowledgable of the food. Tonight, the server really made our night! Special shout out to Pheena for her friendliness, approchability, knowledge and laughs. You know how they say people make or break a place.. Pheena was just amazing and she really went above and beyond. So thank you Pheena!More

While in Auckland we thought we would have a quick bite to eat and both of us being Advantage Plus Gold Members, scanned the Accor websites we settled on the “Express Lunch” at the SO/ Auckland. We arrived at 1pm to a sparsely populated restaurant,...(not a good sign?) The friendly wait person got us seated, watered and an all-day menu but no express lunch menu. I asked for the missing menu, and she reluctantly produced a copy with the stipulation that the management had decreed that if we going to order it, we must both have it, not just one person express and the other from the main menu. So, we reluctantly agreed. She then went off to place the order with the kitchen only returning to announce that the chef says that because the menu has an entrée of soup, (Oops, sorry velouté), customers must order from the Express Menu a day in advance to give the chef time to make it. Surely the chef could have offered a replacement alternative? BTW the reason for the managements decision that customers must both order the same menu was that they would be eating courses at different times. Surely this a decision for the paying customer to make? If I had come by myself, it would not have been a problem. So, their philosophy that eating and drinking should be enjoyable and relaxing are just a market manager’s weasel words not followed in practice. We are interested in trying dinner one day to see if a different chef offers service closer to their philosophy.More
