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.

Lovely dinner and great service. From service with the front door/lift lady to the finishing our meal, everything was extraordinary and another level that is rare to find in New Zealand. Absolutely love it here and will be back!

a special night out deserves a special location and meal. The Sugar Club delivers on both points. Pricey but worth it with great service, an appropriate menu, and a super view.

I reserved for 5:00 p.m. slot "Bar only" through their websites, which has a minimum spend of 40 NZD. I availed of their happy hour, which gives a discounted rate for selected items such as Espresso Martini and Sourdough bread and butter. I also tried...their Parsnip chips and mushroom parfait, which are so tasty. The ambience is chic, overlooking the harbor. Their staff is really amazing, too. It was indeed a great experience as a solo traveler.More

I have been hoping to come to this place for a few years. Timing has never been right with it being booked well in advance normally. Getting a booking for our wedding anniversary was great. Then I saw recent reviews and was a bit worried....I have to say our experience was just fantastic. The View was amazing, Service from the moment we arrived until we left was fantastic. The food was simply awesome. Something that REALLY impressed me was the real attention the staff paid to my wifes food allergy (minor) I on the other hand simply asked the waiter to "bring me food" (blind tasting) I was MORE than happy with the choices made for me. A TINY issue. We were seated at the window and the AC was fairly cool. definitely this time of year not good with light clothing. My own fault for expecting it to be warm. All in all the three in our party had 3 different choices of food and all 9 plates were just lovely to eat. Presentation was great without affecting portion size. The price is definitely fine dining but well worth it for a special occasion.More

We had a very special night out planned for some time with our three adult children and their partners, all aged 22-27 years. We eat out regularly at top Auckland restaurants, choosing the Sugar Club on this occasion for its special location and previous excellent...experience there. One of our guests is an Australian on her first visit to New Zealand. This was the first time we had ever encountered a restaurant demanding to see New Zealand photo ID from our adult guests once we had seated and placed our wine order. Our Australian guest had her NSW license and a photo of her passport, but no, this was not sufficient. NZ ID or a passport or you don’t get served alcohol. Not only was this utterly embarrassing and rude but we had had no prior warning of this request despite an email confirming our booking and a phone call during the day. A ‘special’ exception was made for our guest, but this most certainly put a dampener on our evening. My pan fried fish was raw (as was another member of our party’s fish), so had to be returned and recooked. The rest of the meal was pretty good, but we will not be returning to the Sugar Club nor recommending it to our friends.More

Food was bad. Cold Meats and everything was full of flowers. Noise cancelation was good, so me and my family had lots of laughtefull conversations. But food was horrible, for the price I thought it would be much better. Too much on the presentation. Waiters...and Waitresses were all amazing though.More

Fine dining so be prepared for a very large bill. The waitress we had was lovely, she was from another restaurant in the Sky Tower and had no knowledge about the food or wine. I was a little taken back when the beer that was...ordered was just placed on the table in a can and was not even poured into the glass. We put the beer can on the edge of the table to indicate we were ready for it to be taken but after the staff coming to our table over three times it was only taken away on the fourth visit. The food was amazing. I just don’t think the cost justifies the expense or the experience at all.More

We were booked in for a table of four at 8 pm which was already one hour later than we wanted to dine. We didn’t get seated until 8.30 as our table wasn’t ready. The wait staff were quite inexperienced. I guess the pandemic is...to blame for that. We ordered the Deluxe tasting platter. The food was very poor and we soon realised we were paying for the top quality view, certainly not the top quality food. Won’t be going back.More
