Absolutely amazing time for a celebratory dinner!

The pork belly was once again the best I've had in a long time and the chips+ wedges were cooked to perfection.

The pizza was beautiful flavour but the bases were a little doughy.

I will definitely be going back there again!

Overall a dismal experience and one we won’t repeat. Booked in for 6pm as we were certain this would be a child friendly time but alas we have learnt this place doesn’t seem to ever be child friendly. We were greeted about 100m from the entrance by rather loud club type music which boomed through the closed doors and hoped it was from outside speakers. Turns out we were hopeful and it was just as loud inside. By this stage the kids were hungry so we felt we had no choice but to continue with this ordeal. To calm my nerves from the loud dance music I ordered what turns out was the worst vodka, Soda and bitters I’ve ever drunk. Feeling like we were 0 for 2 in terms of atmosphere and drinks we ordered food thinking with all the great reviews things had to turn around for us.......The food was substandard at best. Most of the food quite clearly comes from a freezer box and is simply deep fried or reheated by varying methods to make it somewhat consumable. For $26 I expect fresh squid in my meal not uniformed pieces of frozen squid from a cardboard box and thrown into a deep frier basket. I ordered what was described as a cheesy garlic and herb bread, what I got was a cheese and heavy on the garlic pizza.......hmmmm???? Not what we were expecting. I wouldn’t have minded if it tasted lovely but i would have had more enjoyment from biting into the side of a cardboard box, after all they share they same texture so if blindfolded I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. By this stage it was 7pm and the music was so loud we could barely hear each other but we figured it was my husbands 40th birthday so we should let the kids have a dessert for a treat, again huge mistake. The pavlova roulade was missing the pavlova component and was frozen in the middle so clearly had been made days prior and frozen for the odd person stupid enough to order this. The freezing of the item meant any crunch the pavlova may or may not have ever had was certainly dead and buried now. At this stage I had had enough so we left. I wish that is where the ordeal ended but alas when I got home I looked at the receipt and realised we had overpaid on our bill. Considering we have 3 young kids and it was thunder and lightening outside i couldn’t face driving back to try and attempt a discussion with the bar staff over loud music, I would rather cut my loses and walk away. This place is having a crisis of confidence and needs to decide if it wants to be a bar or a restaurant, it doesn’t appear they can do both well. It was a lovely presented place and I think it is far better suited to being a bar with bar snacks not restaurant food. In any regard 6pm is a ridiculous time to start a dance party in a restaurant, if it was after 9pm I wouldn’t that’s had an issue. One awful experience of awful atmosphere and ever worse food!

Restaurant food and service very, very good. The only issue that we encountered was at lunch time there was absolutely no designated parking for customers at this restaurant to use. This restaurant is situated in a very busy business centre with very little free parking, and if this is all taken, which it was at lunch time, you will spend some time looking for any kind of parking and you will probably end up paying for a carpark at the many Wilson Carparking areas which surround this particular area. It took us 25 minutes to even find a carpark this also included the Wilson Carparking areas. I do not expect to have to pay for parking to come to a restaurant unless you are in the Auckland city area. This let the restaurant down and because of this parking issue it does not give the customer a relaxed start to their lunch.

Went here on Friday. The place wasn't very busy which was nice and the customer service was on point from arrival.
The wait time for our food was minimal.
The food itself was great. We ordered cheesy garlic pizza, beef burger and scotch fillet. The beef burger had some nice spices/herbs in it, it also came with chips. The scotch was cooked perfectly and came with salad/cooked potatoes.
Definitely recommend this place!

The Brook Bar and Kitchen is a smallish pub in an industrial area. We found the music deafening and it was very hot inside. The staff were pleasant. I enjoyed my salad of burnt fish but my friend did not enjoy his food. He ordered a Monte Cristo sandwich which in effect was just a toasted ham, cheese and chicken sandwich. Would I recommend the Bar and food. Yes, if you work in the area. Good for a quick drink and snack. I would not go the distance otherwise.

Our waitress was awesome and the pork belly was amazing. Unfortunately the steaks were well over cooked when blue-rare was requested but nice cut of meat. Also had to change orders twice as they didn't have what was ordered. Overall, its a nice bar and we enjoyed ourselves.

We had a great meal. The food was super delicious and my steak was cooked to perfection. The staff were super friendly and went above and beyond. We had such a great experience we will definitely be back. The atmosphere here is awesome and there is heaps of parking out the back. This is a place everyone needs to try out.

We both ordered the scotch fillet. Was ok not memorable, the triple cooked potatoes were overcooked and the mushroom sauce was nothing but salty Bisto gravy. Partner like the accompanying salad while I left mine.
Good vibe so will give it another go, maybe an off night as it was a Friday.

We ordered squid for entree, sirloin steak and the market fish for mains. The food were too salty although the waitress/bartender was helpful and gave us some lemon wedges to take the saltiness off. The sirloin steak was cooked well but shame about the over favouring of salt. Good place to go for first table to try out. Felt the place was a bit cold and the seats were not as classy as the place. Would definitely recommend Tacco Tuesday at $5, for value for money although didn't try the food. Overall a good time after work to go as open early from 5pm and good service.

Never disappointed at The Brook. How can you be when the staff remember you from your last visit (those crispy fries are the best) and engages in such good-natured banter? The steak was cooked to perfection. So now I can thoroughly recommend the pork belly, lamb and steak. What am I going to have next time? Hmmmm, fish maybe!

Great service and atmosphere. We ordered 2x pork belly’s, chicken bao and the pumpkin cranberry risotto as our main, as well as garlic bread and squid rings for starters.

Garlic bread = delicious with the caramelised onion
Squid rings = delicious but chewy with some pieces
Chicken bao = delicious
Risotto = bland
Pork belly = delicious

Staff was attentive to see how we were doing which was nice. We’d definitely go back to try other things on the menu.

Last night we were all first table and “The Brook” virgins!

Such an awesome atmosphere - good music, vibe and such nice staff. A little bit of banter, awesome recyclable takeaway boxes and straws and yummy food with good company.

We left a few hours later with a happy tummy and wallet (which is rare!)

10/10 would use first table again and go to the Brook again as well!

Glad we are no longer virgins to either!
