In the city's Crowne Plaza Auckland is a hidden gem; Aria Restaurant.

A short distance from the Civic Theatre, Town Hall and Skycity, it’s your answer to a night in the city centre. It’s spacious, chilled and friendly and boasts a lively atmosphere, perfect for an evening out. The dining area has a distinct no-frills attitude and most importantly, serves good, honest food.

The menu showcases some of the best cooking from around the world and uses locally sourced ingredients. For true indulgence, opt for the venison loin with smoked carrot and potato puree or go for something lighter like the pan seared hapuka. For the vegetarians, there’s a delicious pumpkin and ricotta pansotti to get stuck into. And for the little ones, give them free rein with the kids' menu.

And what better way to wind down than with a bottle of the good stuff? Choose from their extensive list of wines, household beers and ciders. Feeling fancy? It’s Aperol Spritz time!

Reviews

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Aria Restaurant which is based in the Crown Plaza Hotel. We were warmly welcomed and staff were attentive & obliging throughout the evening. Our meal was delicious and the seafood chowder was exceptional. In fact, my husband commented it was one of the best he'd tasted (a real seafood chowder guru he is!) The atmosphere was pleasant and there was enough space around dining parties for you to enjoy some privacy. Highly recommended +++

Delighted to discover Aria within 5 minutes walk of the Civic Car park & theatre, and Auckland Town Hall. The food is good and service excellent, with a good range of options from steak to vegan. The staff were very accommodating of our need for fast service before an evening performance and I'd recommend Aria as very versatile with a nice ambience that would be good for a leisurely dinner for two, or a quick meal before a night in town.

Lovely large dining room, nice ambient lighting.
Hubby liked his steak.
I had roast chicken & it came with rice, green curry & coleslaw, very odd combination of foods/flavours, I only ate the chicken & coleslaw, left feeling hungry.

Great service - steak was a little bit overdone but would definitely recommend the venison!
Chocolate cake was also delicious :)

Entree was lovely and steaks were cooked perfectly for each of us. Love that it got busier after us, joy of first table. Wine could had been colder but lovely meal.

Nice atmosphere, reliable food, and excellent service. Of our mains, the lamb was the best. Would eat here again and this restaurant is perfectly situated for pre-theatre dinner just a 5 minute amble to Civic Theatre.

We really enjoyed our meal at Aria. The winter salad was delicious and full of a variety of vegetables. The service from Sebastian was the best service we have received in a very long time. We felt well informed about the food and wine choices and Sebastian showed himself to be very thoughtful and helpful. We do not live in Auckland but will definitely return to this restaurant.

Really great experience. The restaurant was empty when we arrived but slowly filled up, the staff remained attentive and the food was amazing and well presented. Can definitely recommend the Hapuka.

The restaurant was deserted and we had quiet meal before going to a movie. i had the duck entree and my friend had the fresh Hapuka. It was very fresh and melt in the mouth. The duck was good, too. The steamed vegetables were a wee bit too raw, but still nice.
I enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to others

Was really looking forward to a night out with my special man. I viewed the menu before we went and pretty much knew we'd be going for the steak and the venison. Both meals were beautifully presented and I would put into the category of fine dining, which explains why we waited a little longer than average. It was worth the wait. Our wait staff were very attentive and on the ball. I would suggest perhaps a complimentary basket of beautiful bread while we waited. The wine I chose was delicious. And the desserts - wow - a gorgeous selection to choose from, it was hard to make a final descision. But in the end my husband had the decadent chocolate cake with chocolate brandy sauce, candied walnuts - I snuck a mouthfull - divine! I had the coffee pannacotta which was super too. We had a great dining experience. Perhaps the lights could have been dimmed a bit too to create a bit more ambiance.
