Cuisine: A La Carte, Grill
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

Step inside this sophisticated eatery for contemporary comfort food in a relaxed setting.

Blonde wood interiors and huge windows create a modern, minimalist feel, the perfect space to relax and catch up with friends over a delicious dinner.

The menu focuses on seasonal, organic produce and the restaurant proudly supports local suppliers. When the food is sourced from the likes of Neat Meats Butchery PA, Paneton Artisan Bakery and Clevedon Valley Cheese, you know you’re in good hands.

Enjoy classic soul food such as gourmet pizza, burgers, classic pasta dishes, small plates and succulent meat. Crowd pleasers include pork belly with dukkah and sticky chicken wings glazed in tamarind relish, while an excellent mushroom and truffle pizza will keep the vegans happy.

Desserts are every bit as delicious as the mains… hot pecan pie with maple syrup anyone? Conveniently located in the Adina Apartment Hotel, in the heart of Auckland Central.

Food was pretty average and really long wait to order and receive food, I appreciate there was a concert on that night but maybe not do a First Table that night?

Was a bit sceptical booking here as previous reviews were not great however we were so pleased we went ahead and chose to make our own mind up. Was super busy due to a big event at the arena but we were accommodated a little earlier than we booked and also at our request were given a table in the restaurant area rather than the function room upstairs (which was first offered to us but totally lacked the atmosphere of the bar area). The young staff have a bit to learn in terms of service and customers but the more experienced restaurant manager was fabulous. Food was delicious too! Would definitely go back. Loved it!

The food was great and the restaurant had a lovely ambiance. Great if you want a quiet spot for a catch up. Service should have been more attentive; but since we were there to catch up with friends, it didn't affect us too much.

We weren’t greeted at all and when we informed the wait staff of our reservation, he replied with “I guess that’s ok?”. The service was poor and we left after getting one shared plate of bread and dips, which was a very small portion. There didn’t appear to be a manager to oversee the two young men trying to run the entire bar and restaurant. No discredit to these two young staff members, but they appeared to lack training and knowledge of their menu. The water bottles provided didn’t include glasses so we couldn’t drink it, which in hindsight ended up a good thing, as I saw one of the staff refilling from the bar tap, and not emptying the contents first, nor providing any cleaning or basic sanitary service for the next patrons. A great location for many Arena users, which I believe has got it this far. Such a shame as the bones are there, they just need a overhaul and better management. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.

The venue was really lovely.
The food was enjoyed by most of us... had the duck, crab curry (was a bit messy getting the crab out of the shell), vegan pizza and normal pizza. Desserts were very nice and well presented.
Was a very quiet night but even so only 1 person working and took a while for the food to arrive.
Also was a bit disappointed the menu was different than shown on first table... daughter (vegetarian so planned in advance what to have) was looking forward to the jalapeno fries and peanut butter dessert no longer offered.

Cater for most dietary requirements.
My partner is gluten intolerant and she was able to pick most of the items on the menu as they modify most of the food to cater for dietary requirements. And the food was very good.

A great location right by spark arena this restaurant is part of a hotel but obviously frequented by others. Nice decor and vibe. We had pizza and kids had burgers (despite asking for chicken one got a standard burger but wasn’t phased and loved it anyway) and the kids fish and chips were good. Our server was in training and it was nice to have known this with a name tag as helped us help him. We’d go back for sure.

2 min walk to Spark Arena. Appreciated being told there was a 40 minute wait when ordering food due to being very busy with pre show customers. Mains were good but fish and chips were only luke warm but still are it! Chocolate Fondant was beautifully presented and yum. Nice atmosphere for pre show drink and bite.

Being a pedantic eater, when we booked Yard Bar eatery I instantly went online, decided what I wanted to eat, and spent the next few days mouth salivating over the thought of my upcoming meal. Unbeknownist to me however, Yard bar had just changed their menu, but the online one had not been updated. When we arrived, and the waitress handed me the menu, you can imagine my panic when the item I had to carefully picked out and looked forward to was no longer on the menu! Getting ready to indignantly accuse the waitress she quickly assured me the kitchen would still be able to make the item I had been looking forward to all week. And honestly it did not dissapiont! They're missing a jem taking it off the menu but I am so appreciative they whipped it up for me regardless. Thanks so much to the waitress and the kitchen for their flexibility, great service and deliscious cooking! My pedantic tastebuts were not dissapionted!

Food was good and well done. However, the service was a little lacking maybe because they were short staffed. A trainee served us our dinner - he sounded surprised we ordered more food and didn't know what he was serving us. The drinks selection was really good.

As promised the food was delicious and well presented. Only question would be why plastic containers are used for the Aioli instead of a ceramic bowl etc?
It was a lovely evening and although the were very busy as a concert was on at the arena the food was delivered on time and the service was lovely. Thank you and we will be back!

Absolutely loved the mains! The duck leg was so tender it fell off the bone. The passion fruit tart was a little to sweet and runny for me, but besides that the Yard Bar was lovely. Really friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere

The food was absolutely delicious. Had the yard breakfast and Eggs Benedict with Bacon. Amaaaaaaazing! The service was also great, so friendly and accommodating. The only issue was that the mushrooms in the yard breakfast were very spicy and we were not expecting that at all. Kind of over powered everything else. Would definitely come here again.
