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 made a booking for a busy valentines day, we were seated quickly and the atmosphere was lovely. The waiter, Gurtej, took our order quickly, we ordered all food and drinks at once and to our surprise, we received the cocktails before he finished taking...our order. This has never happened before, the prompt service is unmatched. The food was lovely and we were checked on multiple times, giving us every opportunity to order more drinks or advise of any issue (there were none). we received our entrees quickly and after mains, we realized that we had only been there for an hour and finished all food and drinks. It is rare in Taupo to be finished up and ready to go after an hour, you are usually still waiting for mains. by far the best dining experience we have had in Taupo. Thank you to our waiter, Gurtej, for the incredible service and all the back of house staff for the yummy food and drinks.More

It was Valentines day in 2 days, I booked for 2 of us, on the day, our daughter came with us, I'd neglected to let the restaurant know. When we got there our host was honest and up front, he said it was likely he...did not have a table for 3 available that night. He did not turn us away, but asked us to give him a couple of minutes, in that time he found a way to allow us to enjoy The Steak Houses finest food, service and ambience. Once seated we were attended by excellent wait staff who knew their menu's and were happy to guide us in our choices. Seriously their steaks are to die for, T Bone, x 1, eye fillet x 1 and Sirloin x 1 were our choices. Our entrees came and were perfect, the timing of the service was as if by magic, no sooner had you thought about a menu, a drink, there they were, their attention to detail and their professional competency was absolutely amazing. Yes we were grateful to have been able to stay and enjoy a meal, but that isn't why this review is so generous. That is entirely down to this restaurants overall ability to welcome you, wait on you and make sure your dining experience was brilliant, thank you The Steak House. As refugees from Dorkland who now live in Taupo, we know our restaurants and of all the restaurants in Taupo that we have already experienced. This is without a doubt, the top of the chain!

The food was amazing and the restaurant itself is lovely with a great menu. I had the fish in filo and my husband had the t-bone steak and both were absolutely delicious. Cocktail was great too. Highly recommend

We were looking around for a place that was open around 2000 and we ended up here. They were ok with us arriving late for dinner. After getting the menus it felt like we were forgotten and had to wave a few times to get...their attention to order. The menu is like a standard steakhouse with different cuts of steak as well as other non-steak options. I grabbed the scotch and it was quite nice. it was more medium than medium rare but still juicy. The fettuccine was quite nice as was the burger. It was too hard to get someones attention so ended up not getting dessert. The food isn't bad. It was just quite bad service for something quite pricey. If they didn't want customers that late it would have been better to be turned away.More

The food was reasonably presented and good drinks menu but that's about where the positives stopped. We found it really expensive for very very average food. The side coming with a $50+ steak was cold potato salad and it cost $3 to switch it to...chips. Then an additional $7 for a sauce (mushroom, bearnaise etc) steak was chewy and not very tasty. The $46 lamb confit which is served standard as medium rare was completely raw in the middle. Mentioned it to the waitress who just shrugged. Would not go back there, we found much better (and cheaper quality places) in the CBD Vine, Bistro etc that are waaaay better.More

We had our dinner at The Steak House Taupo last September. The ambience is cozy, and it's ideal for a romantic date. We tried their grilled halloumi cheese as a starter. I ordered Scotch fillet steak, and I chose peppercorn sauce, which is really flavorful....I paired it with cocktails. Their serving is huge, which makes me really full. It's quite pricey, but it's worth the try.More

This place is fantastic. We were only in Taupo for two nights and chose to go there two nights in a row. We both had the eye fillet steak as a main and an extra vegetable side dish. The steak was cooked to perfection. The...manager Gurtej was fantastic. Definitely be back.More

The layout and ambience of the restaraunt is beautiful their bar area is lovely to sit in and is both cosy and open at the same time. However the food was a massive disappointment. We ordered two entrees and two steaks for the pate to...still be cold from the fridge. The scollops were delicious however being a steak house you would think the steak would be melt in your mouth to die for especially at almost 60 dollars per steak meal. My steak was chewy and full of gristle the potatos were boring and flavourless and the mushroom sauce was watery. Overall a disapointing experienceMore
