We booked but on arrival there was no record. We were easily seated however as the restaurant was quite empty. Waited quite a while to be offered any drinks. The food was the degustation menu with matching wines. All the courses were nicely plated and mostly tasted very nice. However most were cold on arrival and the fish dish was... More

Thank you for your review jillpatricia. Firstly my apologies for the confusion regarding your booking at your time of arrival- sometimes our booking sheet can rival a doctors scribble. As part of our service procedure, guests are offered a drink on arrival. My apologies that our degustation sitting had begun following your late arrival, and hence the service of your... More

Despite intending to visit this place for some years it's taken till last week to finally get there. Wow, I won't be waiting this long till my next visit! We went on a Thursday night and got the deal that consisted of 2 courses and a glass of wine. Pretty good value for the quality we received - my smoked... More

A walk through the main street of Albury was interrupted by rain, so my wife and I detoured to the Wine Room for a glass of vino while waiting for the downpour to stop. We were warmly welcomed by Kate who cleared a dinner table by the fire so we could warm up and dry off. A quick drink was... More

Arrived and greeted by a super friendly waiter. Water topped up throughout the night and tables regularly checked on, we wanted for nothing. We had 6 course degustation with matching wines, I'm not sure we actually fit the usual clientele so waiters and waitresses soon stopped explaining the wine and food to us, it felt like they were saying under...

Thanks for your review thebluesmuse! I'm pleased you enjoyed your experience at Border Wine Room and appreciate your feedback. We do find, particularly with larger groups, conversation may be in full swing when we service tables and hence we may only address those whom are not otherwise engaged- We don't like to be too intrusive. No one likes to get... More

This is a dining experience you would expect in Sydney or Melbourne. To find something of this calibre regionally and to not have heard of it previously is so refreshing. It is a gastronomical adventure, with unique techniques and flavours to surprise even the harden food critic. Kate and her small team are knowledgeable, accommodating and passionate about what they... More

Who would expect such an innovative combination of food and matching wines with their degustation menu? Warm saki with seafood, Madeira with poussin, BEER with desert a night to be remembered. Thanks Kate it was an eye opener. Lindsay

Always excellent food. Have eaten there a dozen times. I always try one of the flights of wine which is two half glasses that you can find a pairing to work with what you order. Much fanciers than you would expect before you walk up the stairs. Hopefully work continues to pay for me to eat there with it now... More

A friend and I met for an after work drink at the Border Wine Room, always keen to try new establishments on the border. The owner was very attentive and keen to please. She gave me a few different wines to taste before I chose my preference. The wine menu is not extensive for by the glass wines however is... More
