Spectacular location, simply delicious food and friendly & brilliant wait staff made for a perfect evening. Everything we ordered was amazing, queen crab bisque, salt & pepper squid, confit kawhawai & snapper were so fresh, tasty and delicious. The Valrhona chocolate mousse was a perfect finish to an evening.
Thank you, we will definitely be back !!

Amazing food with unbelievable views! The food was absolutely amazing and the staff made you feel like you were the only diners in the room. A rare night out with my husband was made even more special thanks to the team at Fish Restaurant. We'll be back for sure!!

My girl friend’s first time here. She loved it! I’m one of those annoying people who don’t like change so I appreciate the consistency at Fish. Service is always friendly and food is always good, and generous! Thanks team.

What a fantastic place to go for a nice meal! The views of the harbor from the restaurant were spectacular. The wine was delicious, and the hotel bar downstairs made us lovely cocktails while we waited for the restaurant to open (we arrived a bit early). The oysters our waiter recommended were delicious: I definitely recommend them!

- dined at FISH Restaurant on

A nice relaxing lunch enjoyed by us all. All the courses we had were lovely and nicely presented but the faves of the day were the pear salad, the confit fish and the crack pie. Excellent service and a lovely table on the deck to enjoy the view was much appreciated

- dined at FISH Restaurant on

Service was top notch. We had finished our mains ( salmon, steak, kahawai, cloudy bay clams) and the waiter was observant not to disturb us while one of our party was on the phone, though we wouldn't have minded as we were keen to see the dessert menu. He had walked around a few times yet did not want to intrude with the dessert menu. Ordered the chocolate mousse and crack pie to share rounding off our dining perfectly! Mousse was a winner and sorbet (strawberry and berry - house made?) which accompanied both dishes were fantastic.
We all had a great time for an early celebration of 2 birthdays - great food, excellent service and a view to match!

Amazing views, food and service! Definitely will be back.

This has got to be one of Auckland's most beautiful restaurants, perfectly positioned with 180° sweeping views of the ocean. We were lunch time diners midweek and decided to enjoy the seafood on offer. From the tiger prawn starter and salt and pepper calamari to the salmon mains and snapper fish and chips style, we were treated to high quality delicious food and thoroughly spoiled by good old-fashioned service by our waiter, Tonny, for whom nothing was too much trouble. His attentive service and congenial conversation ensured that our dining experience was perfect! Upon his suggestion, we ended our meal with a sublime chocolate mousse and to be honest, it was a perfect ending to a perfect meal!

Situated at the end of the Princes Wharf in downtown Auckland, the views meander across the Waitemata Harbour to the North Shore, the water creating a peaceful backdrop inviting us to slowly savour the finely produced and presented culinary delights. It's the little things that stand out; a complementary dolop of salmon mousse, a delicious accompaniment to the fresh warm bread that introduced the meal and the taste of fresh oysters set the tone and awoke the taste buds. Everything about our choice of meals was satisfactory, the menu catering for all tastes even though the focus is on the fish dishes, and to top it off the service was perfect, hospitality clearly being a priority for this excellent restaurant. Dining at Fish Restaurant was a spontaneous decision, one that we thoroughly enjoyed.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Felt really valued and individually looked after from start to finish. Delicious delicious delicious food- starter, main, sides all taste so scrumptious. Service provided by such an entertaining waiter who was so so so lovely. Overall had such a memorable night with wonderful food and service. Highly recommend to all!! Will certainly be back for celebrating another special occasion.

I would highly recommend going, especially to celebrate a special occasion.

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
Thank you

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.

- dined at FISH Restaurant on

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.

- dined at FISH Restaurant on

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 :)

The food was delicious, great salt and pepper squid for entree. We were given one of the best tables, fantastic view across the harbour, great service. There was no hint of having to rush to finish and vacate the table. Great experience.

From the moment we walked in we were treated extremely well. We were shown to a great table with beautiful views.

Couldn’t fault the service, we were made to feel special throughout the night. Well done FISH.
Ps your new menu is great. The octopus starter was phenomenal as was the toothfish. 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.

Wanessa Patiño Blanco

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.

Beautiful restaurant with a lovely view and incredible food. They have just established a new menu and the smoked octopus is absolutely incredible; tender and smokey. The star of the show was our delightful waiter who was charming, funny and incredibly knowledgeable.

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!

Superb service, food and wine with stunning panoramic views from the Harbour Bridge to North Head and beyond. For a special experience go to Fish and enjoy. 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.
