The location was so amazing. We could have dinner with transition from beautiful sunset to night sky. Service was nice. Hole staffs are very friendly and reliable. Starter dishes were so buetiful. My favorite was poached pear salad. Good combination of pear and nut, cheese. My favorite main was bouillabaisse. This is the best bouillabaisse I have ever eaten all over the world. House made sorbet was nice, not too sweet.

This has got to one of our top dining experiences. Not only was the service BRILLIANT the food was outstanding. BJ who looked after us was knowledgeable, funny, professional, kind and thoughtful. We felt like part of his family. It was my husbands birthday and BJ made the whole affair very special indeed, so much so that we will return again soon. It was the little unexpected extras that made all the difference. 12/10

My wife and I dined at FISH restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and it was such a wonderful experience. The service was the best we have seen in Auckland, with kind conversation, helpful recommendations for both food and wine, and plenty of space given to us to slowly enjoy our meal. My wife was recommended the Char Siu Toothfish, a specialty of the restaurant, and it was delicately delicious. I had the Salmon – simple, but beautiful cooked with a rich, buttery sauce. For dessert, I couldn't look past the Crack Pie. The waiter warned us that it was a particularly sweet dessert, which my sweet tooth loved! I can honestly say that FISH restaurant has been my favourite dining experience so far in Auckland. Thanks for giving us such a special night to remember together.

What a fantastic place to dine. I was so impressed that the only thing off the menu was the crayfish and caviar as a lot of First Table restaurants have a special menu which excludes a lot of dishes. The food was fab as was the service plus valet parking along with lovely views over the water. Everything we ate was so delicious its impossible to recommend a dish. Have fun and enjoy. Thank you FISH.

My husband and I had a great time at Fish for our wedding anniversary. We had a table by the window with incredible views, and the service was outstanding. We really appreciated the extra touches, like the sashimi taster and the surprise 'Happy Anniversary' chocolate platter along with our dessert. Couldn't fault the food at all - it was divine! Thanks, we will be back :)

We booked Fish for lunch with friends. This restaurant is very well sited at the end of a wharf. We were provided a table by a window which provided expansive views of the Waitemata Harbour. There is an outside terrace where one can dine alfresco weather permitting. The tables are well spaced so no annoying hubbub from nearby tables.

The meals we all ordered the same (snapper and chips including a salad) were excellent - definitely made under the supervision of a chef. There was sufficient for any appetite. The wine list was extensive.

Waiting staff were very well trained with the touches one expects at a top class facility. Jackets and coats are taken to hang in a wardrobe.

We were all well pleased.

This place is absolutely worth trying.

The Char siu toothfish with braised silverbeet and barbequed onions is probably the best fish dish I’ve ever tried.

My mom had the Bouillabaisse and loved it, the broth that came with it was very tasty.

We also tried the mushroom rissotto which was incredible in taste and texture.

The simplicity of the tiger shrimp was surprising as it was so delicious. Same with the salt and pepper squid.

Everything tasted outstandingly fresh!

Wish we would have had space for dessert.

Will definitely going back to FISH restaurant, I highly recommend it for the exquisite quality of the food, remarkable service, and beautiful waterfront views.

I had heard a lot about this restaurant but never had an opportunity to dine here. My dining experience at FISH was one of the best I've ever had. All the food was absolutely perfect, the atmosphere and service were excellent. The sashimi platter was fresh and divine. Char Siu Toothfish was the highlight of my night, the smokey char siu flavour was incredible and complimented the fish perfectly. We got the market fish of the day as well and it came as a whole fish, definitely more than enough to share. Will definitely be coming back again soon, I would recommend FISH highly to anyone thinking of dining here.

Stellar experience
Our first time using First Table, and first time going back to FISH after the revamp, and it was incredible.
We had bread with brown butter to die for, salt and pepper squid, a sashimi platter which had the freshest and tastiest fish and scallop with ponzu which was a great touch, and lamb and salmon for mains.
It was so refreshing to come back to an old favourite and see such an improvement in the quality of food, and we received impeccable attentive service from our waitstaff.
Can’t wait to come back again, thank you First Table and FISH for the great night!

We were celebrating our 6th year anniversary and can’t wait to go again.... 10 out of 10 and 100% recommended. Good work First Table bringing Fish onboard .. it’s a real treat dining there.

The location is amazing, with lovely sea views. Our waiter was friendly, but we did note he did not offer us the same initial service as he did the table of three after us (ie bread). This may seem petty, but it is sometimes the small inconsistencies that are often noted. In his defense though, there was only one other table seated before we arrived, so he may not have had his 'A' game on by then. Other than this observation our waiter was great!
The food was very delicious, I had the Salmon and my partner had the mushroom lasagna-type dish (sorry FISH, I do not recall its name). Both meals were exquisite - thank you chef!
We had heard of the Hilton Hotel by reputation only and with the restaurant on the hotels' mezzanine floor were expecting a glamourous dining experience (similar to the EURO dining environment), but sadly that was not to be. The restaurant environment was alright, but nothing to write home about.
We did enjoy our night out though.

Have dined at Fish several times now and every time it never fails to leave us wanting to come back. The views are absolutely outstanding, we have always had exceptional service from very professional wait staff and everything we have tried so far on the menu is delicious. We had queen crab bisque and salt and pepper squid for entrees, chicken and the lamb for mains and didn't want to leave so stayed for lovely desserts too. We will definitely be back. Stayed the night in the hotel as well.

At the hotel entrance we were warmly welcomed by Fred. We ordered handmade bread with caramel butter which were well presented and very tasty. The pear salad was refreshing.

I took my father in law to FISH to celebrate his 71st birthday. He loves seafood, so FISH was the best choice. The place and view is amazing. My father in law was in love with the restaurant. What's even better is the foods. He enjoyed his fresh oyster as his entree, and has bisque crayfish as his main. My husband beef steak was amazing! We would definitely come back :)

A bright, sleek spot for lunch on Auckland’s harbour. The service was great and we were seated at a table overlooking the ocean.

We went for lunch on a sunny day, they gave us a table facing the ocean which was excellent. Their staff were very attentive and professional. Their oysters were very fresh. I was very satisfied with the raw fish entree and lamb belly main I ordered. The tiger prawn soba had unique flavours but not to my liking. I had a very enjoyable meal here and I think they delivered beyond my expectation.
