Went there with work colleague and we both have different likes and dislikes. Both of us had a fabulous meal. I loved the service, the waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our meals. They also had one of the best non-alcoholic drinks available that I have seen. I will be going there again with my husband.

What was once a star of Auckland is now just another "European" style restaurant cooked by Asian chefs,a recipe for disaster and we should have left as soon as we saw the kitchen ,sky city needs to stop recruiting inappropriate cheap labour and focus on the quality of the food .Such a shame .......

Another Sean Connolly (no relation) restaurant just down the hall from his Grill. I think if you fluke the right waitperson things could be better. We lucked out at first with a waitress who was really lost and forgot our drink order. Then we lucked in with an Italian waiter born in England. But the food was patchy. You can... More

We dropped in for dinner on the spur of the moment and had one of my favourite meals in Auckland (and that is saying something given the excellence of NZ cuisine). Highly recommend this restaurant - I want to come back and work my way through the menu.

Nice setting, however completely missed the mark on creating true Italian food. Lacked seasoning and depth.

Took some customers for a nice meal but had no idea what a great experience it would be booking the Chefs Table. If you want your night to be a real experience I suggest you do this at least once. The food and service was perfect, pricing was surprisingly good for what I was expecting.

We went there to try the buffalo cheese gnochi but it was not on the menu that day. We still had a great time trying other beautiful food

we went to Gusto for our dinner when in Auckland. I asked for the chefs table and that was nice. I loved the fact that the table was in the kitchen because I could see them yelling and every chef to get peoples food out. my best dish was the chocholate cake that we had last.

Visited this Restaurant for the second time last night and don't believe we'll be returning. The staff were great but the meal was not. Highly over-priced and presented in a very trendy format, this place is trying to be the ultimate in sophistication but when faced with a bill of $24 for a plate of mussels you can buy at... More
