Take time out at The Grill by Sean Connolly, a celebration of great food and good company.

For me, bringing people together is what good dining is all about. So at The Grill we take pride in offering you a relaxed, uncomplicated atmosphere. An atmosphere that complements our fresh, honest fare, simply prepared to let the natural flavours shine through.

From tender pasture-fed meat to succulent sustainable seafood, you'll notice there's a distinctly Kiwi accent to our menu. In fact most of the ingredients we use are sourced locally from specially selected New Zealand suppliers, along with much of the cookware and a rather special wine list. It all helps remind us to keep things simple and authentic - and helps keep the conversation flowing too!

In short, whether you're looking for a casual lunch with friends or a sophisticated dinner with clients, there's something to suit every palate. So come on down to Federal Street and enjoy life at The Grill. You'll always be welcome here.

  • Does the booking include free parking?

    SKYCITY does not offer free parking when you dine. We offer discounted parking rates at $5.00 for the first hour and $3.00 for every hour after, if you spend a minimum of $40.00 at any of the outlets. You will be required to get your parking ticket validated from the restaurant reception in order to get the discounted rates. You can find out more about our parking options here.

  • What are your casual parking rates?

    The casual rate for parking is $15.00 for the first hour and $5.50 every hour after. The maximum parking charge per day (up to 24 hours) is $50.00.

  • Is valet parking available when I dine?

    Valet parking is available at SKYCITY Hotel and The Grand Hotel on the day of dining for a discounted price of $20. Please notify the concierge of your booking at the restaurant on arrival, then show your receipt when collecting your car. For alternative car parking options please click here.

  • Can we use our Premier Rewards for parking?

    Yes, if you have sufficient Premier Points or a car parking credit accrued on your card. Your Premier Rewards card can be swiped at the parking machines to exit.

    Please note, some car parking credits are required to be activated at a Premier Rewards Kiosk before redemption.

  • Can we bring a cake with us?

    Unfortunately not, but we'd be delighted to make one for you. Please call us on (+64) 09 363 6000 at least 48 hours in advance of your booking and we'll create something absolutely delicious within your budget. Only cakes purchased from us can be served in our restaurants.

  • Is your meat Halal?

    While most of our meat suppliers are Halal certified, all meat preparation is completed in a SKYCITY central kitchen so we cannot guarantee that meat is Halal.

  • If a group has a person celebrating a birthday, does the birthday person eat for free?

    No, unfortunately not.

  • Do I get free admission to Sky Tower when I dine?

    Sky Tower admission is included when dining in the Sky Tower Restaurants - Orbit 360° Dining and The Sugar Club. If you dine at any other SKYCITY restaurant you will be required to pay full price for admission.
