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!

Was a fantastic lunch at the glass goose.

All the food was fantastic and the staff were lovely.

The service was great from the start, the food even better. It's easy to share the plates amongst friends so you can all enjoy the delicious delights that you order. The cheese waffles are a must-try - you won't regret it! It wasn't too busy (we went on a Tuesday) so it wasn't too loud and good for a catchup with a friend I haven't seen in a long time.

Our booking was for 11.45am on a wet Sunday. We were the only ones in the restaurant for a little while but then more tables filled up. We were amazed that such a gem is so well hidden away, literally just opposite the Sky Tower. We had a couple of the bite sized starters which were very tasty. Then we followed that with three share plates - brussel sprouts with bacon, cheese waffles and thinly sliced beef with coleslaw. All dishes were very tasty and filling - especially the waffles (it was a huge dish). Also enjoyed a wine and beer - all in all a very pleasant lunch. The waitress was amazing and so friendly and helpful.

Cool restaurant with cool decor and a cool location. We got to watch people doing the Auckland tower Sky Jump while chowing down on some seriously tasty eats. The menu has some good variety and is perfect for sharing while still filling you up. The lamb was especially tasty with drool-worthy crispy skin. Interior decor was very stylish and creative with a lot of greenery - lovely to spend lots of time around. This one is an absolute gem!

We ordered a number of dishes and loved them all. The chilli clams were a delightful start to our brunch. Accompanied by the pulled pork slider which had a slight crisp on the outside and mouthwatering meat in the middle. I was recommended the Wagyu short rib which had the qualities that you see in a dish on something like Master Chef. My partner enjoyed the market fish and our friend loved the lamb rump. The venue would be one of my favorites in Auckland, with the bar set up in the middle to tempt you just enough to try one of there many different types of liquor on display. This place is fantastic to show your friends one of the few hidden gems in Auckland.

We booked a table last minute for our work teams Christmas lunch and all the food was fantastic. Cocktails and wine were delicious and the service was fantastic! Such a great atmosphere with views from the rooftop looking up under the sky tower. We couldn't think of anything that we didn't like about our experience besides the arborist cleaning the exterior of the building which meant we got drizzled with water every now and then but the staff were nice enough to move us to table inside.
Thanks to everyone working last Friday and taking such great care of our team.

I have never personally thanked a chef until I ate at The Glass Goose. I was compelled to do so as I could see her create our dishes from the kitchen and because the flavors were exquisite. I highly recommende the oysters with watermelon and sparkling water! If it's a warm day and you're sitting on the covered terrace sipping cocktails...their flavour will transport you to the very best of summertime.

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.

First time having lunch here and was VERY quiet. Think we were the only table there... lady greeted me soon as I arrived and let me take a seat in the courtyard area where they had a French theme going on. Anyways... she was very friendly and offered me choices of water. My mate turned up shortly after and we were presented menus. Noticed that when grabbing some napkins that there were some cigarette ashes inside some of them and some of the cutlery hadn't been properly cleaned, so swapped it from another table. Ordered the roast duck and my mate got the lamb, along with the potato fat skins as an entree. They came out shortly after and the potato skins were yummy! Our mains followed about 15 mins after and although they were nicely presented I thought the portions were a little small for my liking. The duck breast was about 3 tiny pieces of duck with lots of noodles and bok choy. Mate said his lamb was nice but still thought the portions could've been a little bigger for the price. Have no issues with the service as the ladies were both friendly and helpful. Didn't quite like the setup outside as it seems a little crammed, especially if others were there. Thank you for the experience!

We had a lovely dinner here. We sat in a quieter part of the restaurant as had 2 kids with us which suited well. Seemed lively through into the bar which was nice. Interesting menu. We had the duck main, cauliflower couscous and Brussel sprout salad- all delicious with tasty veggies while the kids had sliders and fish croquettes, also yum. Service was great , nice decor, good location, would go back for sure!

The cheese waffle was awesome as well as the lamb rump, eggplant chips were not my thing however. The staff was awesome! always checking up on us and even let us move to an inside table cause it was too loud&smoky at the outside tables. All in all, a good experience. Nice place for a work function//work drinks I'd say .

Went for Saturday lunch and it was very quiet but top-notch service, super attentive and friendly staff and the food was better than expected too! It came out very quickly, got the medium dishes first then the large dish which was perfect timing. Highly recommend the potato skins!!

Lovely experience, great service. Overall food was enjoyable. Unfortunately didn't realise the cauliflower cous cous was raw (might have missed reading this on the menu) and it was quite dry, but all other dishes were great with the polenta and lamb our favourites.

Sunday lunch at The Glass Goose surpassed our expectations - for both food and service. We liked the shared dishes and our family was able to sample many items on the menu. Special mention to the duck fried potato skins. polenta dish and the Wagyu short ribs. Desserts were also very good.

What an awesome find! I have been to the Glass Goose before for drinks and some nibbles but never had a propper dinner there. Everything about our booking through First Table was great. The seating area was comfortable and away from the main crowd having drinks so it mas a more chilled atmosphere. Our server was super nice and talked us through the menu so we knew what to order and portion sizing. We got the halloumi, baked pollenta, and chips with duck fat...what an amazing combination for two people and it was great that they had so many gluten-free options that still allowed us to share our meal. We ordered the pannacotta for dessert but luckily our server told us that the waiting time was longer than we could afford, as we were going to a show...we are definitely going back!
Thanks first table for an awesome night!

It was my second time visiting Glass Goose with first table.

The food was okay.

And the staff said oyster and clam are out of stock so we couldnt order.
Those two menu were one of things that we are going to order.
So it was very disappointing!
