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

We visited harvest restaurant with 2 young children. When we arrived there were only 3 other tables that were occupied but we still waited a long while to even get menus. We were asked to order drinks without even being given drinks menu. We also had to ask for a high chair even though we clearly needed one. It took... More

Harvest was a truly lovely experience, staff were friendly and efficient the food we ordered tasted amazing and the alcohol prices were surprisingly low for such a up market restaurant. We will go back in warmer weather and sit out on the terrace as the views are beautiful.

We came here in a group of nine for a birthday celebration, on a concert weekend. We ended up here as Muse, Circa 1876 and Valle De Pays were either booked out for functions or full. We also had a Vegan and Dairy intolerant to cater for! We were seated outside on the balcony on a cool night, but we... More

The poor waitresses may be been over worked due to a wedding which was on at the same time. Arrived at 8.00pm, the first glass of wine arrived at 8.45pm! The entrees were great, the main courses average- the beef was too dry and lacked flavour.
