This place is amazing for anniversaries, or just expensive dates! We did the 3mains and 1 dessert course meal, and gotta say the flavour of each dish was A M A Z I N G! BUT!! If u look for portion size.... its not that big nor filling. Service was excellent, veiw was wonderful, atmosphere was 10/8, was just a good experenice. One thing that let me down was the dessert. Not my style, just overly too sweet, could of done abit better but everyone's different!

Beautiful place with a wonderful view of the city. Very well thought out menu with amazing combinations. Ample parking and amazing staff. Would definitely revisit again!

We had the Degustation menu but chose our specific four courses The food was absolutely fantastic.The lobster linguine was sensational a must order. It was all so delicious that it is difficult to say which was better but the Peanut Butter dessert was fantastic We only ordered that between the four of us as we were so full. They had an Amuse Buche to start & a delicious Pear palate cleanser as well to finish the main meals

We went to the Sugar Club for a combined birthday. We started off with champagne in the bar watching the sunset and the went to our table. Three of us chose three dishes and I chose four. Every dish was a taste sensation with the highlights being the crayfish linguine and much to my surprise the creamed Paua and dip. I had Paua in the early years and didn’t think much of it - this was in a different league. We selected a French white and an Italian red by the carafe to go with the dishes. The highlight of the evening was the birthday cake! See photo. The service was fantastic and we certainly had a lot of food. A must try in Auckland and we will be back.

Amazing food and experience! Excellent service. The view is on point as well. We felt very special. Definitely will come back. Thank you Evgeny Pozdeev

We had a private enclosure for our group. Auckland is lovely on a clear day especially viewed from the Skycity. Our waiter explained each dish and attentive. Food was amazing during August Auckland food month. It was the first time i had foam with the paua! Interesting taste of the sea. My second dish was the veal which fell off the bone and my fav. The third dish is the lamb which i thought was ordinary after the extraordinary. Will come again for sure.

Ambience & atmosphere: 4.5/5 - It's pretty damn good especially during an evening out. Highly recommended for a date night or anniversary celebrations! 😊😊 Quality of service: 5/5 - Quite possibly the best service I've experience in New Zealand. Top notch service all round!  Quality of food: 5/5 - Some real delights on the menu here and almost all of it is expertly flavored.  Price per person: $130-160

Had dinner here tonight. Food was way better than I thought it would be. Tried a lot of things I'd never had before. The chef's degustation menu was awesome. Service was great and my group had an awesome time.

Great food and undoubtedly the best view in Auckland! They have a 59 dollar special for 3 course lunch and early dinner which is a great value. The mandarin sorbet was outstanding

just back from celebrating a dinner there,  was an amazing night out. Nothing to fault at all, best views in the city,  staff and service was great, and food was amazing. Favourites was the venison and the crayfish linquine,  but everything else was great. Thank you to adam who looked after us for the night, just the right personality we thought, friendly and attentive without being in the way all the time.  Would love to go back again. went through 6 dishes between 2 of us, and shared a desert and came out full to the top :)

The Sugar Club offers fine dining at the "highest level". Situated on level 53 of Auckland's Sky Tower, here you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the city below, only to be occasionally intruded by "SkyWalkers". We went as part of a large group and so had the benefit of ordering everything on the menu.

Beautiful restaurant, my husband booked for my birthday, very elegant, delicious food , great service , highly recommended, we had the 5 course menu , loved all dishes

My wife and I dined here last night to celebrate our 12 year anniversary, we had the 7 course Chef’s Degustation with matching wines. Dinner was amazing and the service was awesome, thanks for the memorable experience.

Fantastic views,and excellent service, the food is delicious, we have been there to celebrate my husband birthday, the waiter gave us a special birthday dish. I definitely will go back again.

Celebrated engagement here with a group. Had a. Exclusive section booked out for us. They compliment the couple with champagne and dessert. Provided a set menu for the group with a delightful selection. It's fine dining. Portion and small but flavorful. The views are incredible out to the harbor. It was a very memorable night for us all.

Loved my experience here! Every meal had so much thought placed in to it and I loved every single on of them! The view of course is incredible and really adds to the romantic atmosphere. The service was great and very attentive! Will definetly be back! I completely recommend going at least once to anyone, not only to appreciate the views but the food as well!!

Note this is a brief review of their vegetarian menu. Chose a 4 course including dessert which for the most part was lacklustre. The peanut butter dessert was pretty good but for the dollars you're paying at this place, most of it should be amazing. I suspected one or two of the dishes components had been sitting there over prepared for some time. The setting and atmosphere are fabulous. And the cocktails are great too. I'll head up there again for a drink but not for dinner.

Fine dining at its best. Just one quick tip: reserve early if u are planning for a special occasion. I had wanted to come here on my bf's bday and tried to reserve online 2 weeks before that but it was fully booked. So I decided to bring him here on our anniversary instead. First up, I have to commend on the service. We arrived early and asked The Sugar Club reception on the ground floor if we could go up to the Sky Cafe first. The staff was polite and helpful, and invited us to pop by the bar if we still had free time after that. When we entered The Sugar Club, we were warmly welcomed and attended to. We had a window table which was perfect and were introduced to the menus. Our waiter had good knowledge of the degustation menu, explaining to us that the dishes are arranged from subtle to strong flavours. He then brought us some bread after taking our orders. We went for the 3 dishes option which allowed us to choose 6 different dishes altogether (including choice of desserts). We were aware that the portions were going to be small as it's a degustation experience but we both left the restaurant happy and full. Every dish that we had was really good. My bf and I particularly enjoyed the crayfish linguine and peanut butter parfait. I like the fish of the day too which had a flavourful broth. We were also given a complimentary soup and dessert to stimulate our taste buds. After we were finished, we were surprised with a congratulatory dish that had "Happy Anniversary" on it, even though I didn't plan for anything special. Throughout the entire night, I found the service and food to be spotless. Staff were very attentive and when the setting sun was starting to get to us, they lowered the blinds and then raised it up again when the sun had fully set so that everyone could enjoy the city's night lights. After our dinner, our waiter walked us out to the lift lobby and pressed the button for us. I felt like a very valued customer the entire night. With a minimum spending of $40, u get discounted parking at Sky City too. I would strongly recommend this place for special dates. If u are lucky, u might even get to see people doing the Skywalk just outside your window.

My boyfriend and I visited The Sugar Club earlier this month to celebrate our anniversary. Luckily, the weather was good that day so we were treated to impressive views of the sunset over Auckland. My boyfriend selected the vegan degustation menu, and I went with the vegetarian. I have to say, given the price we paid for the food and the glowing reviews, we were somewhat disappointed. My boyfriend thought the vegan menu was a mix of 'average' and overpowering dishes, flavourwise. I liked a couple of the items on the vege menu (namely the snacks and linguine), but everything else was also either average or overpowering. While the individual elements are nice, we felt that the flavors overall didn't balance well enough. I think this is a restaurant that caters well to meat eaters, but if you don't eat meat, your choices are limited. If you're vegetarian, I would suggest ordering from their a la carte menu. If you're vegan, you're better off going somewhere else... The service was excellent though. Attentive, but unobtrusive. We were there for 3 hours, and they made no effort to hurry us along. The 'happy anniversary' plate was also a lovely touch.

Went in very ambitious and thought we would be able to complete the 5 course meal, the waitress advised us that the meals despite some being smaller than others; were quite filling. Very happy with this experience, highly recommend going just before the sun sets for breath taking views. Great food, very well presented and delicious.

Went there in the restaurant of the month with friend. Amazing view. Food is so nice and the services. They give you small food between dishes to get fresh taste for the next one. I will definitely come back again.

First time here and it is fancy as , haha I have to admit. Nice setting and mood. Great way to bring ur partner here on your anniversaries or dinner date. Pricey but hey, paying for the delicious food and amazing view from the sky tower! Got myself a 3 main course and desserts Love the entrée :) I had hamhock terrine , linguine and the beef fillet. My favourite dish is the hamhock terrine. The meat was tender and love the extra that was on the plate. Kina cream taste amazing :) The crayfish linguine was amazing as well. With pine nuts mixed with it , makes it taste better. I'm allergic to cray fish but that was definitely worth a try! The beef fillet is amazing as well. Cooked medium . :) Deserts : I had the Peanut butter parfait It's sweet. Really sweet . But a good way to end the amazing night :) 👍🏻👍🏻

Amazing views + good food. You can either do a degustation menu (which is a fixed menu of 7 dishes for $135), or choose ur own from a list of dishes (min 3 dishes pp, including dessert if you want). Went with my family of 6 so we decided to go ala carte, so we could cover as many of the items available (see pictures attached). My favourite meals this time was the teriyaki Aubergine dish, salmon amuse-bouche and the fish of the day (great fish +great cook, and also had a delicious broth and good quality oyster!). My family (who has never been to places like this before), had a good laugh at the Laksa portion, as it was really tiny. If you're a true Malaysian and love your laksa, best to stick somewhere like papparich (for portion) or uncle mans. To be fair, I didn't try it - I'm sure it was great, but not the right place if you want to satisfy your laksa cravings. My favourite dessert out of all was the peanut butter dessert. The oolong panna cotta was interesting and light, but not quite to my taste. The cheese platter had a great selection of cheeses (sorry, I don't know what all 4 were - one of them was definitely blue cheese). The crackers used looked like they ones you could get from new world though. Was hoping it would come with freshly made crackers from the store, which was a little disappointing, but not unreasonable. Overall, another great night out. I had 3 dishes + 1 dessert and I was stuffed. Also, we went about 630-8, and the sun was a bit annoying. Don't go around that time in summer if you're sensitive to sun glares!

Like everything here, it was a great feasting there with good serves and beautiful sign. Before every meal we have a pre-taste which are little amazing.
