Palm court is one of my best place to have a cocktail that do have their own infused Liquor's and they blow once they making it. It's a really amazing place to have a drink.

The service standard here is seriously below par to what is expected of "Palm Court" or even the "Langham" brand worldwide.

It took exactly 55 minutes after seated to get acknowledged and orders taken. The young service team were eager but were obviously unable to cope with the sheer amount of patrons when we visited. It so appear that the restaurant or perhaps bar? had an identity crisis, where you have a loud boisterous group enjoying a rather unruly drink session next to a couple trying to have a quiet meal.

There were a couple of gentlemen in suit, as one would assume they were in a supervisory role, but they seemed to ignored the chaos around them and were too busy preparing cocktails etc. behind the bar.

Perhaps the management need to be reminded that it is 2017 in Auckland city where hospitality standards are high, competition fierce. I would avoid this place at all cost, where a short stroll down Karangahape road you will find excellent eateries such as 'Coco's cantina' and various other well regarded eateries just a bit further down along Ponsonby road.

This restaurant / bar / hotel lobby lounge (pick one), is light years behind what hospitality standards are already at in Auckland City. Disappointing.

Called in for a quick meal. Great welcome and shown to a table. Given a newspaper and the wine list. Lovely generous pours. I ate where I was and really enjoyed the schnitzel with anchovies, capers and lemon. Will go back.

Lovely surrounds in the lobby area of the Langham Hotel. While it's in quite a prominent area it's surprisingly private as we sat enjoying our afternoon beverage. We ordered two cups of tea that arrived as two pots of tea. Served in lovely china and wait staff poured the first cup for us. Felt slightly hurried out which was unfortunate as there were many other empty tables. We then couldn't find any staff to settle our bill. This aside, a lovely (but $$) afternoon venue for a catch up with a friend.
