25 years ago at the end of November we had our wedding reception at what was then only known as Delaire. This year, on the day, my husband and I went to the new Delaire Graff restaurant to celebrate. Special thanks to our waiter Alan for making sure that our lunch was a special one, to be treasured as a... More

Visited here for lunch while on our honeymoon. Breathtaking view from the restaurant with the food and service to match. Reasonably expensive but you see why when you get there. A must visit!

I was really looking forward to our reservation as Id heard so many things about the Estate from friends who had been previously. When we tried the 2015 Delaire Graff Shiraz with our first Amuse Bouche we thought we were in for a treat as... More

I absolutely loved the food and views at this restaurant but the service was severely lacking. Our hostess, Caitlin, was shockingly rude. We had made our reservation months in advance and asked for a table with a view. Caitlin took us to a table that was jammed in a weird corner, with no view and next to the servers station.... More
