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 booked our lunch reservation 2 months before our trip to Auckland. Less than 24 hours before our reservation, we got an email stating that our reservation had been cancelled. No explanation and no offer to accommodate. Really, really poor form.

Best restaurant in New Zealand I would say! Food selections, ambience and customer service are outstanding. We really had the best buffet experience here. Customer service is excellent, especially the manager Jenry. He made sure our needs are attended in very timely manner. Very child...friendly service! Highly recommended!More

Our family had Christmas breakfast at Eight Restaurant. The Christmas setting was stunning - it included individual fruit smoothies, yogurt and muesli and a block of Cordis dark chocolate each as well as a 3 tier setting of a cheese board, salmon and sweet muffins!....Molly and her team are an excellent example of service supreme. The food was of an exceptionally high standard and the Christmas surprises just kept on arriving - Champagne, Scones with Jam & Cream, Special cookies and a special Christmas bread before we left to take home. Everything overseen by Molly and delivered by her team. Thank you Molly and Eight for a memorable Christmas celebration breakfast.More

Paid $109/head for the worst Christmas Day experience ever. Initial impression of the room was good, nice red table runners and Christmas crackers at each place setting. Christmas music would have been nice. Waitress was lovely. But unfortunately that was where the good part ended....The tiered cake stand on each table must have been prepared last Christmas. Jaded opaque salmon with wilted strands of micro greens hanging over the sides of slices of stale baguette. Scones so dry they crumbled when cut. Soft rice crackers with no snap, to accompany some common old cheeses I could have bought at Pak n Save. (What a missed opportunity to showcase some great NZ artisnal cheeses.) Only half the food stations were open. Pancake/waffle station and the omlette station were nice because they were made to order while you waited. Everything else was terrible - Grey sausages, out of a packet hash brown triangles, sweaty bacon, watery scrambled eggs, mini croissants that were so fried out they turned to dust when you bit into them. Nothing was piping hot and there was not one offering that spoke to the fact that it was Christmas Day. I would have been disgusted to be served this food at my local Cafe let alone a supposed 5 star restaurant. We won't be back again, ever, and I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone else spend their hard earned money on this amateurish fare. They should have been ashamed to charge for it.More

Cordis Eight gets 10/10. The service from Molly, Maia & their 2 newbies was outstanding - from the time we sat down! The wide selection of fresh, quality food was exceptional. We dined here last year & Eight has maintained an unbeatable standard of excellence....We will be back again.More

It was our first time to dine here at Eight Restaurant. We were totally blown away by the wide variety of food options which definitely lived up to our expectations. Desserts are also honestly to die for! I enjoyed every single bite (not too sweet^^)....Ambience was great too. The highlight of our night was the exceptional service given the busy period. Hats off to Jenry and Zoie. They were really committed to providing a great service. Overall, our entire experience was phenomenal!More
