We were gifted vouchers to dine at Paris Butter. Can honestly say it was the most magical meal I have had. The flavours and quality of the dishes, combined with excellent service made it into a truly wonderful experience. Will definitely be back. See less

At this price point you would expect a really great experience and unique flavours, in this regard, Paris Butter did not disappoint. Food was fantastic, the duck and fromage dishes were particular highlights. The complementary jar of butter was a very nice touch. Great ambiance and service. Now for my critiques - I noticed service did get noticeably towards the end of the evening, our server also got noticeably rushed. When entering the venue, the girl scanning our vax passports grabbed our phones to scan our codes - does she really need to do this? Given the current climate my wife and I were not a fan of this having to happen. I'd recommend this place if you are a food enthusiast. See less

Nice food and above average service. Dishes are heavily influenced by Japanese common cuisine (a recent visit). To be honest flavor is a bit repetitive with "exotic" ingredients. See less

Went a year ago on test kitchen Tuesday and had a fantastic night - excellent food, perfect service - attentive but unobtrusive, knowledgable without interrupting our evening. Went last night and... post lockdown things seem to have slipped. We had the menu du chef with matching wines. The food is still imaginative and delicious - kitchen is 5 stars. Could afford to speed up timing between courses (or at least checking with dining party what their preference is) as all in all it took 4 hours, which was an hour too long for us. Minor gripe but the restaurant manager/ head chef should consider bringing this into practice. Front of house staff on the other hand are simply too inexperienced, too rote and need training in fine dining service. It felt like we were on a production line, not in a fine dining restaurant. - Waitress began by telling us at length about the bonus course of crayfish the chef had for us tonight - only to promptly then recall that they had run out and we would not be receiving this. - Husband ordered a beer to begin which took 10+ minutes to arrive. - Delivering food and wine - my husband and I would be mid conversation and interrupted by staff to explain at great length the food and wine. Which can be interesting if it is the unique details. But the scripted notes on the typical flavours of a chardonnay, and informing us that the duck breast is seared (obviously) is excessive and disruptive. Staff should be triained to read the cues as to what and how much info the dining party wants/ needs. If they're engaged in animated conversation - keep it brief. - Other than the choreographed times they were to attend the table to deliver food/wine, it was difficult to attract the attention of the staff. They seemed task focussed and not scanning the room to look out for diners trying to get their attention to request drinks etc. Again, a training point. - At the end of the evening, the waiter removing our dessert plates also took our napkins (?!?!) followed immediately by his colleague delivering the bill, EFTPOS machine in hand and ready for payment. No offer of tea/coffee/digestif. No time to sit and enjoy the end of the meal. No opportunity to review the bill discretely. NOTE- there were still 5 other tables going, so this was not a matter of them trying to close up. Just ineptitude. Overall it felt like they had a run sheet of events that are supposed to occur, and in what order, and a script to follow. But no training on the subjective/ customer service side. The above details would not fuss me at a low- or mid-tier restaurant. But at the price point, the above is simply not acceptable. See less

Absolutely perfect. I had started to get a bit disillusioned with degustation fine-dining as the last few I've been to just hadn't met my expectations, Paris Butter redeemed the category for me! Everything from the moment we entered till we left was perfect. The food was super delicious, presentation superbly immaculate, atmosphere was spot on and the staff were just the best. I could go on about each dish we had but what's the point, it's going to change there's only tasting menus so just get down there and dig in. See less

Great food and awesome service! Definitely worth another visit! The snacks are a delight! You may think its pricey but its worth it. I did find some of the snacks and entrée a bit too buttery for me but it still tasted awesome! See less

Fine dining at its finest. Had the great opportunity to dine here while they were having a collaboration with Lillius (another great fine dining restaurant). Starting with snacks and ending with snacks, I was able to taste so many different unique flavours. The food was presented very professionally and the taste was beyond imaginable. The staff were attentive and great. This place is a must-go if you are wanting to experience some French fine dining. See less

The best fine dining restaurant in Herne Bay. The atmosphere is intimate, service is exceptional and most of all the food is great and presented exceptionally. The staff are very attentive and it was nice that for our table of 5, the chef came out with the food to explain each dish. See less

Great restaurant. My wife and I dined here tonight and having heard of it before but never been, were looking forward to some fine food. We weren’t disappointed. From the chefs take on classic kiwi dip in the shape of NZ (immaculately done) to the delectably complex chocolate dessert the food did not disappoint. The service was also nothing short of perfect. There when you needed something with great charm and banter and also left to enjoy the meal. Credit to the entire team. Will definitely recommend. See less

Long overdue, I thought I'd share my lovely experience at ParisButter. My family took me here for my 25th birthday and I had a great time. I hardly had time to take any pictures of all the nice dishes they served, but I managed to get a few. The standout dish for me would be the sourdough bread with the truffle butter. That may sound boring but it was actually so damn delicious. Definitely go for the package that includes the sourdough bread and truffle butter! For dessert, they even gave me a birthday card which I really appreciate. They also have a nice selection of drinks, plus my personal favourite, craft beer! The staff here were lovely and very professional. The relaxed, tranquil atmosphere also adds to the experience. Be prepared to fork out a few dollars for this fine dining experience, but its definitely worth it! See less

ParisButter was highly recommended by our friend who goes there regularly and it didn’t disappoint. The service and ambience is elegant and the food is just amazing. The value for money is actually very good compared to other expensive fine dining restaurants in Auckland and come in generous portions. Also beware that the menu and wine list changes frequently as well so be prepared to be surprised every time you visit! We came here for our wedding anniversary which was perfect but it’s also very suitable for group or small party settings! Highly recommended!! See less
