Very good food - beautifully presented - great service - wonderful selection of wine for every taste and price range imaginable. We had a lovely bottle of Yalumba Viognier which was very reasonably priced - have seen it for much more at other licensed places. Food was delicious - again the range is exceptional. Even gluten free for my coeliac... More

With very little notice I arranged with the proprietor of this restaurant to have a small 65th birthday celebration for a family friend. I was treated with enthusiasm and efficiency right from my first contact. The night was a triumph. The food was fantastic, the service great but not intrusive, the drinks and wine spot on. Additionally, the restaurant itself,... More

Table was ready and waiting on our arrival and plenty of drinks choices to start off our dining experience. Room was pleasant enough, lighting dimmed, air con a good temp but a bit noisy owing...

Decided to checkout the lunch menu since the re-opening. The service was dreadful, long waits, a waitress who did not seem to know the menu. There were several apologies for the long waits, with an explanation they had not been so busy since the re-opening. Well one assumes it had been empty as there were only five tables with diners...

My friends & I had an amazing experience at Vine 21 on 13/7/13. The staff & owners (particularly Rob Rose) were so friendly, helpful & professional. Nothing was too much effort (rare in some restaurants today!). The food was incredible. The chicken risotto was one of the best I have ever eaten, and better than most I have tasted in... More

I had not yet been to Vine21 when I read all the reviews on here, and quite honestly was feeling a bit apprehensive about the pending booking with the negative reviews (all seem to follow a common path). Now that I have been, I can say I will definately be going again and recommending to friends and family. Although it... More
