(Caveat: I spent 20 years in the hospitality industry working in places like this) The Hope Estate is a beautiful location with appalling management. I attended Bruce Springsteen this weekend, the E-street band are one of the best live performances in the world and this is not about them. The management of the Hope estate either couldn't find head with... More

We chose Harvest restaurant due to its proximity to our hotel, the Pokolbin Village which was right across the road. The restaurant was quiet, in fact just 2 other couples were there, which meant more attentive and friendly service for us which was a treat. The food was spectacular, we had the 5 course degustation menu, and complemented it with... More

A group of 6 friends for lunch, we had tried and failed to book in to 3 other restaurants. It was incredibly windy and there were bush fires all around. We went out onto the verandah which looked a little tired with its white plstic chairs and power cords all shoved in the corner.There were lots of things flying around... More

When you sit down to the picturesque setting, its a good start but they could pick up their game with the service. The restaurant was half full and they weren't paying attention and it took them a long time to respond. Food was nice and well presented and a bit pricey. The restaurant has potential if the staff doesn't play... More

We attended a Melbourne cup luncheon at the restaurant. It was a 4 course degustation menu with matching wines for $89. The restaurant seems to be a verandah only and the view is lovely over looking the winery. The food was ok. The first 2 courses were just basic and the third the main of lamb. The portions were exceptionally... More

The food was reasonably good (Nigella crusted lamb loin was a stand out) and the service was friendly but seemed a bit disorganised and lacking good management. We selected the 3 course menu with matched wines and only received the food and wine at the same time for one course! The restaurant was not busy at all but staff seemed... More

I would of given 5 stars but as we have newborn and the facilities to cater for that was a major let down. It is one the second floor only stairway entrance no change room. But the staff were very nice and attentive to our needs. The wait times were short and appropriately spaced between courses. The food was delicious... More

Service was terrible. Mid week lunch restaurant less than half full but wait staff just disinterested. Specifically booked a table for 4 on the deck but when we arrived were told " sorry none left outside" despite several empty tables for 2 in sight. Eventually hassled staff into joining 2 tables for us making a total of 12 patrons on... More

Wow what a venue! Beautiful elevated restaurant with a fabulous view. A group of girl friends enjoyed the tasting menu over lunch. The service was friendly and helpful. We started with a Hope Estate sparkling and then continued with the tasting menu and matching wines. All courses were delicious and visually appealing. My favourites included Roasted Baby Beetroot with Goats... More
