Good food and service is excellent.

Orleans has a very cool atmosphere, it feels very cozy and smoky (without the smoke). It's not too crowded and is a really nice place to go as a couple or a small group. The drinks are amazing - their range of alcoholic floats and hardshakes all look amazing and taste just as good. I will definitely be returning to try more drinks from the menu! The waffle stack is as crazy as it sounds, and definitely worth tackling if you have at least 2 hungry people to share between.

My parents finally redeemed their Christmas present "a trip to that restaurant you liked last year". They knew exactly what restaurant because they'd been to exactly one restaurant that year, and exactly zero the previous five or so. They're the kind of parent who considers it a waste to spend money on themselves - which is nonsense to me. They're my parents and they deserve to be treated!

They LOVED Orleans last visit and now adore it. From Mum mentioning just how unbelievably tender her slow cooked beef cheek was for the sixth time, to Dad exclaiming that the Cupcake Red Velvet wine is so good that last time he tried to import it from the States himself. Dad ended up ordering every side, drink and dessert I did because he couldn't believe how tasty everything I chose was.

A truly wonderful experience that they'll surely be talking about nonstop until I take them back for seconds. Wait until they hear this has become a family tradition.

Lovely, inventive menu! Cool surroundings - decor and ambience... and really friendly service! I'd highly suggest trying this spot out - it's different, fun and has a great ambience to start a night out. The drinks are also spot on with a ton of different types of alcohol offered at the bar - and some really fun menu items that are super instagrammable! Definitely suggest a stop in for an early dinner before hitting the town!

The food and the service were faultless!

We ordered mac and cheese, the baked potato and coleslaw to share. The portions were generous and tasty! The mac and cheese was creamy and flavourful and the coleslaw was really fresh!

We then ordered the pork belly, blackened fish po boy and fried chicken. Orleans is renowned for their fried chicken and they most definitely did not disappoint! The chicken was crispy and sweet, the po boy was tasty and the pork belly was really tender and delcious.

We didn't catch our waitress' name but she was EXCELLENT! very friendly, personable and added to our great dining experience.

Definitely recommend!

Been here before a few years ago and had a great time so thought we'd come back again.

Service = customer service was great, staff are accommodating and approachable

Atmosphere = place is dimly lit but music wasn't too loud so we could still hear each other talk. Our seats at the high tables were a bit uncomfortable though

Food = didn't have to wait long to get our food. Portions are worth the money you're paying for.

Food we ordered-
Jalapeno Poppers: awesome starter, what I was expecting it to be, the jalapeno had a nice spicy kick and the type of cheeses inside meshed well together with the jalapeno.

The Waffle Stack: not as great as the first time we tried it, the waffles and pork belly were dry and a tad bit too overcooked and we didn't get enough maple syrup (only the top waffle was drenched in syrup and the rest were neglected). Fried chicken, onion rings and fries were delicious. We still vacuumed the whole thing.

Oreo Sundae: could not fault this, tasted like a high end well blended McFlurry :)

Hurricane (cocktail): very refreshing and tangy, also quite affordable compared to other places

Great place to dine and food was great, however we were the first ones there and it took almost 40 min for our food to arrive.

Cocktails are some of the best I've tried around Auckland (especially the pear cocktail)! Food portions were great and excellent for value especially with the first table discounts!!!

Amazing food! I loved the chicken waffles and my husband loved the mac n cheese. I only wish they had a more chocolatey shake on the menu at the moment but that's just me.

It twas a lovely evening . Service was amazing. I had the waffle stack and the chicken was juicy and delicious and waffles were light and had a crunchy texture. My partner had a mac and cheese burger which had a slight kick to it but delicious.

Good customer service and the food is pretty good, the only thing I don’t like about the restaurant is too dark in there, can’t even take a good photo of the food lol

Great experience with friends, perfect place for a friday eve. Great atmosphere and not too loud to be able to chat, then live music later from 8pm (ish).
Food was good, the spinach and artichoke dip is a MUST!
Friendly service, easy first table experience :)

We had a great time, food was epic and we definitely ordered too much! Eyes way bigger than our bellies. Service was great and I love the Fleur Dr Lys cocktail.

It has a really lively atmosphere too which just makes it fun to be there. Cannot recommend enough.

The waffle stack is a must have ! The server recommended a dish which was quite disappointing - the salted caramel shake was a winner though. Yum !

- dined at Orleans Auckland on

This restaurant has got great atmosphere. The service was great, the staff knew the menu and offered good food options. We shared the waffle stack, which was kind of quirky, and had a lot of food in it, but was a lot of carbs on one plate! If we go again, I would definitely do several smaller plates and share them.

Timely seating, food came out pretty quickly and tasted really good. The Waffle stack could definitely feed 3 people so for two people we thought in future one of the sharing plates without a side would have been enough. The shakes were amazing - would definitely recommend the chocolate and peanut butter one.

It was our first time using First Table. We went to Orleans at Britomart and were pleasantly surprised. Restaurant has a cool vibe, staff were really friendly and attentive, and food came quickly after we ordered. We love the potato skins and buttermilk fried chicken.

Food was amazing everything was super
Delish. We decided to share a few small
Plates one came out about 5 minutes before the rest of our food which was a bit strange. Otherwise food was outstanding would definitely recommend however service let them down we weren’t checked on or offered more drinks just basics which was a little disappointing. Overall
A lovely night and would recommend

Attentive staff, decadent shakes. My dining companions gave top marks for the waffles. With a name and theme like Orleans I was also looking for gumbo, jambalaya, boudin but maybe off the menu due to lack of popularity? Plenty of whiskey choices if you want to experience.

Bartender was fantastic. We couldn't decide on what to get. He was able to make ones that suited and were delicious. Service was generally very good. However some staff were too keen to clear our table even when we hadn't finished our dinner and then again when we put down our cutlery. Food was tasty and good. Would return.

- dined at Orleans Auckland on

Stunning food. Fantastic Service. Arrived early with young kids and were seated straight away. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back next time we are in AKL.

All my experiences with FirstTable were either not that great or average, but I’ve been a frequent user. Again, I went to Orleans, not expecting too much, but for the sake of the food. But upon entering, my friends and I were greeted so warmly, they didn’t mention FirstTable, which meant that we were treated like a proper customer, not a customer who was here to scam off food. The food was ordered, and the food portion was the same as any regular days. When we received our ribs that we ordered, we even had the chef cook up another plate for us as he thought the ribs were slightly small! Overall such a great experience. If restaurants like Orleans do this FirstTable experience often, it’d be such a treat for everyone :)
