Enjoy twinkly lights and indoor gardens at this urban jungle of a restaurant! Designed to emulate the cool ambience of a glasshouse, the Glass Goose Bar & Eatery is a real oasis away from the bustle of Auckland.

Well-known for their contemporary and shareable dishes, the Glass Goose offers a modern menu for both lunch and dinner. From platters of cured meats and local cheeses, to pan-fried market fish and New Zealand lamb, there’s something to keep the whole table happy. If you simply can’t wait for the main course, try their smaller dishes, like the crumbed pork belly or potato cod croquette. Got a sweet tooth? Their dessert menu offers to-die-for treats, including a Malibu panna cotta, salted caramel whoopie pie and cardamom brulee.

As well as dishes everyone can enjoy, the Glass Goose is renowned for its picture-perfect cocktails and magical mixologists. Toast the evening from their rooftop bar with a Glass Goose Frozen Prosecco, a sweet, fragrant and zesty cocktail, garnished with flowers and a cloud of candyfloss. Delicious!

Had a nice chilled lunch on saturday. really cool little spot when the weather is good to sit outside
we decided to share four of the lighter plates which was more than enough for the two of us
We had the aubergine chips - really tasty crunchy cumin coating , a little salty but delicious when dipped in the cashew sauce
beef cheek and black pudding - the most filling but a tad disappointing . lovely cooked beef cheek which we liked and lots of potatoes in gravy but only two small pieces of black pudding
sliced raw beef & slaw - we really liked this one , fist time having raw beef and its a bit tricky to scoop onto a fork but we liked it with the slaw
polenta & kale - loved this one lovely crisp and salty kale with the baked polenta - could do with a sauce but we had some left from the chips so used these
really lovely friendly staff and great drinks selection so we would pop in again

I dined at the Glass Goose with three other ladies on a weekday lunch and we were more than happy with the service we experienced and food we were served. The host was a lovely Frenchman with a friendly smile who made sure we were having a spectacular time. We were then served by a waitress who was bubbly who explained the menu to us and gave us time to look at the menu (despite us being not ready within the first fifteen minutes of being seated!). We chose an array of bites, smaller and medium dishes for lunch to share. They were impeccably presented on the plate by the chefs. Our favourite dish was the smoked potato waffle with an avocado mousse. Potato and avo? How could you go wrong? We ordered a bunch of cocktails as well since the meal was such a steal and had a great work lunch break! The ambience of the restaurant was open aired and it was a gorgeous day. The greenery surrounding the terrace was so welcoming and inviting and we felt like we had been whisked away for holiday during lunch. A fantastic mid-week pick-me-up! We will definitely be back!

A very quick, but not rushed, tasty dinner before we went to a show. Friendly and helpful waitresses. Nice venue, and all the pot plants etc, made you forget you are actually right in the centre of CBD.

My boyfriend and I went to the Glass Goose for a fun date night and managed to book a table with them while they were also holding their pop-up spring event. The set up of the place was very cute and the live music did set the scene. The service we had was good and the server we had was extra caring and patient enough to guide us through the sizes of the meals. We ordered a bit of everything and the food was delicious and came out real quick - fresh and HOT too! Definitely would come again :)

Went with my partner and had a great time. Wasn't sure about the made to share menu because my partner is vegetarian and I'm not but we ordered a bunch of medium and side dishes and all of them were delicious. I got to try a lot of the vegetarian dishes and was rather impressed I had the lamb to myself. My partner and I loved it - we were stuffed afterwards so was just a shame we didn't make room for dessert. Will definitely be back in the future

We went to the Glass Goose for Father’s Day and had a lovely lunch, the food arrived quickly and was delicious although the duck was a bit dry. The waitress was friendly and efficient. We were a bit worried about taking our two children with us however it didn’t seem to be a problem and they loved their whoopie pies.

The food was great, the atmosphere adorably quirky but the drinks were just incredible. Had the most delicious coffee of my life, followed by a sensational martini. I don't usually say this but this is definitely one of those invest back what you save in the drinks menu situations.

Some of the best food we've had this year. Glass Goose was a little tricky to find, but if you follow the music and chatter you find it down the side alley. Attentive waitress, explained the menu clearly. My mussel bite was a little disappointing but the market fish and vegetables was absolutely amazing. A shared cheeseboard was also excellent, with generous portions of good cheese, crackers and crisps. Wonderful not to have to eke out the portions. The venue is busy and noisy in the bar area but not excessively so. Overall excellent.

We had a wonderful time at the Glass Goose. We opted for heaps of shared platters, one of each of the four desserts on the menu to share, cheeseboard and many, many drinks! Our server was really attentive without being annoying and we all agreed we would come back. Thanks for having us!

We really enjoyed the feeling of being inside a glass house in the middle of the city. The interior design and the mood feeling made the atmosphere really comfortable. We started by ordering a few drinks and the service was excellent. We ordered a few bites first: the chilli wagyu beef lettuce cup and the pork belly. These were small but really really good. We also shared a medium dish (beef brisket buns) and two sides of vegetables. All the food we had was delicious and we were left feeling full and satisfied. We'll definitely be back for more.
