Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Actually would like to make it 4.5. Very good food and service. Beautiful location. Lovely wines. I rang in advance about dietary requirements - no garlic or onion and they made special version for 3 of their dishes for me - excellent service and much...appreciated.More

Thank you for visiting, we are so glad to hear you enjoyed!

A very young staff with a certain earnestness but lacking enthusiasm generally. Kind of implied they could fit us in at only one table when the place was a third full and 40min later was deserted. Bought a bottle of wine which they then didn't...pour for us. Food was mixed, one meal was quite tasty, the Burra was very very bland. Meal portions were small and expensive for what we received. Wouldn't come back again. Wouldn't recommend.More

My husband and I dined here on the weekend. We were very pleasantly surprised that the restaurant has changed its menu from pizzas back to a la carte. We ordered the slow cooked beef cheeks with mashed potato and a side of chargrilled beans with...chilli and garlic for main course. The beef cheeks were so meltingly tender and cooked to perfection . We loved the gremolata on top which had zest of lemon infused through it. For dessert we both had Affogato with grand marnier. The presentation of the meals was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. So glad that they have changed their menu. It is a lovely restaurant, the perfect place for lunch with relaxing bush scenery and great food and wines at reasonable prices. We will definitely come back.More

This restaurant has a great location and ambience, and used to have a great a la carte menu, and service to match. It is now platters and pizzas. Our platter for 3 at $55 was poor in value and presentation. The pizza choice was only...three unimaginative ones. There were adequate staff on duty, but they were very poorly trained and absolutely inattentive. Their wines are the only redeeming feature of this place.More

The food produced and served at Woodstock Coterie is 100% amazing Every Time! House made pate that has even turned a pate loather into a lover; so many wines that you surely will find something to your taste. Friday night Pizza's never disappoint, with live...music too. The staff are always smiling and so obliging, makes for a fabulous overall experience. Myself and family and friends are great advocates for Woodstock Coterie. Even my interstate family loves to visit for some food, wine and a wonderful experience . Thanks to all involved at Woodstock.More

Great service. Modern Australian food. Unfortunately for us, most restaurants in the area are Modern Asutralian food. Sometimes you just want something simple. Why do chefs nowadays seem to think flowers are good in their dishes? Food is about taste etc, not looks IMHO.

We went to the two set course family day. We loved the location and the activities for the kids was amazing. Kids meal portions were huge for children under 7 The big let down was the 1.5hr wait between entree and main. I had made...an early booking as we have young kids we were interested in adding dessert but the wait time put us off and we left as soon as we finished main. Id skip the orange and fennel salad but the tarragon chicken and chat potatoes was yumMore

Our visit coincided with a family day at the winery, the beautiful gardens were set up for picnic style dining. Family groups were gathered, enjoying the lawn games and face painting provided for the kids. Our table on the veranda was perfect for us to...enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant and garden. We began our visit with some wine tasting at the cellar door where the staff were friendly and informative. After choosing a bottle to accompany our meal we ordered our food which arrived promptly. On this day the menu was set with two courses and choice of sides if you wished for an extra cost. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and could not fault the menu. Thanks to all the staff who contributed to the wonderful afternoon we had at Woodstock. I can’t wait to return!More

We just celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary at Woodstock. The lovely Becky was very helpful with organising a wonderful lunch for 22 in their private upstairs area. The food was delicious and the wines superb. Everyone in our group commented on the quantity and quality...of the food. I can highly recommend them for either a passing lunch or your next function.More

Quite possibly the worst service and dining experience in Mclaren Vale we have had in 5 years. The young service staff did an admiral job but were guided by a manger that simply should choose a new vocation. Spilt a full glass of water over...our table and left us to clean it up. Apologised and walked away. Entrees were ok. Dumplings were tasty and plentiful. The fish main was poorly presented and tasted terrible. Inedible. Kids meal presented on a bread and butter plate which clearly ended badly. Pasta dish was ok and pork cutlet was fair. Overall a poor experience. Over priced, poor service and only average food. Wine was nice enough.More

We booked in for the Friday special of the pizza oven night which is $40 pp for unlimited pizza (plus nibbles to start and dessert..$20 for kids). I chose it because it looked like it had beautiful grounds that the kids could run around in...while,we had some peace and quiet. It was a 40Dec day and the restaurant was cool and welcoming. There was some lush lawn for the kids to run on and some play equipment. At first we thought 40 was a lot per person for pizza (4 choices) but we ate a lot as did the kids. I loved their 'Audacity' rose and they had some good reds. The background singers added to the relaxing atmosphere. Good for groups or smaller catch ups.More

Fabulous. What a way to treat yourself and your guests. Quiet enough due the space with excellent personalised service, a wonderful menu and outstanding drinks list. We did share a bottle of the Octogenarian Grenache - to die for - a better wine you'll not...find; honest, it's that good.More

We went there Friday’s (pizza night) and we had a great time. Service staff was excellent, food and wine as well. I just would recommend to reduce the volume of the (really good) live music, it’s much more easier to speak to each other. The...rest - thumbs up!More
