My husband and I ate at this restaurant while visiting Auckland this week. Astonishingly inventive and delicious food. Surprising and decadent. I can't imagine better and can't recommend more highly. Try it.

It took some 4 and half hours to serve us our 7 course tasting menu. Aside how long it took to feed us the service was good. The food is quality as expected when fine dinning but I thought the portions were small.

My hubby & I had the degustation menu along with the matching wines. Food was very good and each of the wines we had were great and well matched. The decor is interesting and you might think it would be noisy as you are very close to the people behind you but surprisingly it wasn't. The wine waiter was excellent... More

We came here to celebrate our son's graduation. I'd read some reviews and honestly expected not to like it, I was very wrong. This was way more than an evening out, it was an experience. Everything was just perfect.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate an anniversary and it didn't disappoint. We had the degustation menu 7 courses with wine match. The food was beautifully presented and the flavours were an interesting collection that all seemed to work together. Exciting to see what we were to be served next. We chose to wine match which was fun. I don't... More

We decided to try Clooney's and were lucky to get a booking on Xmas Eve. The restaurant was not as busy as I expected, but the service and staff were friendly and attentive. The set menu was excellent and is quite unusual and definitely go there hungry, although the servings are smaller there is more than enough to fill you... More

Service was excellent. We did the 7 taster menu. The meat dishes were a disappointment over salted. Quality of meat not there especially the wagu. Desert was lovely. Would we return don't think so.

Clooney is a restaurant with intent and ambition. A fine-dining destination in nature, it offers a range of unique food and beverage experiences to suit the contemporary guest.

Clooney’s food is considered yet abstract, the menu fuses classic culinary practices with a thoroughly modern approach to ingredients and technique. The flavours are clean and precise; dishes are continually in progress to reflect seasonality, inspiration and evolution.

The breadth of the Clooney wine list spans over 300 labels and complements the food through its perspective on new and old world balance.

Clooney is driven by its commitment to fearless design in both its food and aesthetic. Leading architects Fearon Hay created the space, a concrete frame reworked with curvaceous forms, fine textures and luxurious fabrics. The restaurant also regularly collaborates with visual artists.
