I dined here recently with my husband and brother but arrived alone before either of them. I had planned to wait in the bar for them but the bar is quite small and there was only 1 seat left. The front of house staff member who greeted me whisked me through to another much roomier space in the hotel lobby to the rear which was much nicer for some-one waiting on their own. I was really grateful for this and most impressed. Brother and hubby duly arrived and found me easily and we stayed in the nice roomy bar with leather arm-chairs for our first drinks and then went to our table in the restaurant. The service was excellent in regards to both food and wine. I had the scallops to start followed by the King Crab linguine and both were superb...and we had dined at The French Cafe the previous night I might add...so comparison was inevitable. And the Grill stacked up favourably. My husband and brother also really enjoyed their meals. I can't recall what they were but know my husband had a steak which was very good and also quite a big steak which he couldn't finish...possibly due to the side order of Mac & Cheese which was also amazing. We thought the Grill was right up there with
Aucklands best and will be back soon.
