Excellent and very economical meal at Culpeper. This is a first time for us as it was a quick meal before The Breakers game. Even though it was a bit noisy, the food was very good and the service by the girls were exceptional. Highly recommend.

Brisket and pork butt were deliciously moist and ultra tasty. A bit let down by the pork belly that was rubbery with no crackle. Service was over attentive, every time waitress bought some thung over she stood back 1m from the table and just stared at us. It was off puting. Overall a good experiance but a few things to work on

The setting was beautiful, the service was fantastic, both professional and humorous, and all but one of the dishes we choose was great. We loved the tuna poke and the duck hotdog starters, for mains we enjoyed the 15hr brisket, and Mac cheese. It was a special ribs night, and as lots of other people obviously enjoyed theirs, I found mine a little hard and chewy.

The lemon infused donut for pudding was rated very highly too.

A great venue.

Fantastic food and service. Quite a few exclusions from the first table, including the boards and specials, but a really good deal nonetheless. Recommend the pork belly which comes with a delicious smokey salad.

Atmosphere was great, food was great but two people were sitting at the table outside right by the door smoking and the wind was blowing the smoke inside and took the edge off our evening and meal.

Amazing food and service. Highly recommend getting multiple entrée dishes to share with the table to go with your main and dessert, the dessert pies were large portions and absolutely delicious. Can't wait to go back

What a great choice .. just a short stroll along Princes Wharf is Culpeper’s and well worth the visit. We had a selection of smaller plates to share (great portion sizes) and all delicious... squid tacos, Mac n cheese, crispy chicken wings, hush puppies ;) all was yum even if we did over order! The service was fantastic .. friendly, professional and efficient. We can’t wait to go back... with that lovely view out over the water, Culpeper’s is winning x

Fantastic. Food was fantastic, and a great range of different options. We devoured purple slaw, mac n cheese, the hush puppies, pork belly and ribs, and everything was fantastic. To cap it off, the best key lime pie I have ever eaten in Auckland. The quality of food for the price you pay, at a viaduct location, is amazing. I was flawed when I saw how cheap our bill was, I had to leave a tip because I felt guilty that we had eaten so well so cheaply.

The atmosphere is great. Obviously, any viaduct spot on a sunny day looking over the water is beautiful. But the decor of the restaurant is really cool as well. Our waitress was awesome, very friendly, fast, and showed a genuine interest in our day and how we were doing.

I have already recommended many people visit The Culpeper and will continue to do so.

Really enjoyed our lunch at Culpeper, had a great chicken salad and my husband said the Tuna Poke was very tasty. Not so excited by the salted caramel apple pie, bit burnt on top and no salted caramel taste, but the filled donut was nice. Great service and nice spot to have lunch. In the shade completely sitting outside until about 1.00pm but great for hot days. We will certainly return.

Always enjoyable to dine at The Culpeper. The salmon and kumera were our favourites. Beware, the cauliflower is a large portion! Wonderful summer lunch on the wharf.

Can not fault The Culpeper! Food, service, staff and the ambience of the whole place is awesome! We have been a few times now and keep coming back. All of the small plates are packed with flavour and the pulled pork large plate is my all time favorite! The sangria is delicious and perfect to share on a summers day evening. Make sure to save room for dessert! The slices of pie are huge and super tasty! Key Lime pie yum yum!!!

I absolutely loved the smashed kumara! I would return just for that! The salmon was nice, but not fabulous. The pork belly was very small and the roasted cauliflower underwhelming. But the service was great, and it’s a good location.

The dinner was a gift to my parents for their anniversary and they absolute loved it! Booking the first table meant that they got a table overlooking the water, which was just perfect. The Waiter also gave them two glasses of free champagne when she found out it was their anniversary. An all round great experience, thank you.

The food was absolutely amazing! The vegetarian small meals were some of the best that I've had. The jalapeno cornbread was fantastic and the slow roasted brisket is still on my partners mind - he still talks about it. Great and attentive staff that kept our glasses full throughout the meal. We'll definitely be back!
