We went here the night after going to Soul 50m away. The food was okay but priced the same as Soul and no basic service - no wine cooler or table service, had to go to bar to ask for some water, had to ask for the table to be cleared and wiped between courses. My vegetables with my meal... More

Visited here on a Friday night and were surprised that we were able to get a table for 4 with no reservation. Food was amazing. Recommend the lamb shanks!

We came here for dinner on a business trip and found it to be good. The steaks were cooked exactly as we had asked - blue/rare - and came with hot crunchy chips. The staff were friendly and the service was fine.

A quick dinner after arriving in Auckland. It's close to the hotel so was convenient. I had the grilled salmon fillet and my colleague the fish and chips. Neither one enjoyed the food. The salmon with pineapple salsa did not go well, and my colleague barely touched his meal. The chips was mushy and oily and the fish batter too... More

We came here twice for dinner. The food was really nice, with plenty of choices. The staff were really efficient, but not in your face. It looks out over the marina.

We had a really bad night last night at the V Grill. Admittedly there were 4 of us on a voucher, but I don't see that as a reason to get it so wrong. This is absolutely no criticism of the waiters and maitre d who were very obliging with a fussy eater in our party, and kept paying attention... More

Very nice location on the harbour, great fish and chips but the service was a little lacking, the waitress was more interested in standing around than servicing the customers.

We shared the mussels for entre as they are very generous on size, pretty good but not fantastic. We then had the special of lamb racks, lamb slightly over cooked but the produce was very fresh so didn't really matter. I really enjoyed this dish. I think this place is quite good but you need to be careful on what... More

sometimes we are not decisive on selecting a place to eat. The night we ate at V Grill was one of those. We walked around and around the harbor area with nothing really saying "come have dinner here". But when we came upon the V Grill the menu looked interesting, it wasn't priced too out of whack and the decision... More
