The Best Steakhouse in Auckland

If you have a hankering for a big juicy steak then we've got you covered. Tony's is widely considered to be Auckland's original Steak House and they certainly make the list, but these days Auckland offers a number of other choices. We've done the leg work and present here what we think are the seven best steakhouses in Auckland. Best is obviously a subjective judgement, but based on the menu range, customer reviews and personal experience we think these are the best places to satisfy your steak cravings.

Angus Steak House

Family-owned since 1973, Angus Steak House is the place to go for grass-fed New Zealand Angus beef and lamb from family-operated farms. They also offer seafood and vegetarian options if red meat isn't your preference. Serving lunch and dinner and hosting events and functions, they can accommodate large and small groups for private dining in their loft.

You can pick your own steak and tell the grillmaster how you would like it cooked. The steaks are huge and filling, but be sure to save room for the salad bar, sides, and desserts. The friendly and accommodating staff and reasonable prices are sure to please.

Wynyard Grill

Located in the Wynyard quarter next to Viaduct Harbour, Wynyard Grill is an awesome Auckland steakhouse and wine lounge. It is in the space previously known as Johnny Barr’s American Restaurant Bar & Grill. Some new dishes, such as Beyond Burgers, a truffle swiss melt, and a 28-day aged bone-in ribeye, have been added. Old favorites, like mac ‘n cheese, remain on the menu. And like any good steakhouse they have a great wine list and a good selection of craft beers and cocktails.

Wild game meats, an extensive wine list, fine cheeses from France, Italy, and New Zealand, and seafood are additional highlights. They hold many fun events such as local winemaker evenings, live jazz music (Thursday nights), and other special occasion dinners.

Absolutely terrific service from start to finish; the steaks were cooked to perfection as per our requests; the sauces had delicious depth of flavor; the truffle chips were rather decadent but complimentary to the overall meal; the meals were artistically presented; definitely an excellent team that provided a memorable meal & experience for Valentine's dinner; recommend adults only & you can dine alone, as a couple or group.Will make sure to return as it was worth every cent.

Came here on a Thursday night. There was a live band playing too which added to the ambience.
We had a scotch and a sirloin steak from here. Both steaks were done to perfection, just how we liked it. And the accompanying sauce to was nice. Can highly recommend this place, as the customer service is just as good as their food.
