I have been to Levantine Hill several times over the years. The winery itself and the views are one of the best in the Yarra Valley. Had lunch here with family and seated in the "wine barrel tables" was great. Not fully private but somewhat separated form the rest of the restaurant was really nice.
The new middle eastern menu where you select from 3, 5 or 7 dishes has a nice range.
The food itself, like always, was very good. What you would expect for the high prices you are paying although some dishes were a little small given the price.
However, as with my previous lunch here about 18 months ago, there are a several issues and I'm afraid I would not return.
I had 2 young children and there is no children options. Not even a small size selection. The children must have the 3 course $80 option.
The service was again poor. It took over 3 and 1/2 hours for lunch with long wait times between the courses. Had to call and ask several times for water and wine top ups (they missed the opportunity to sell more wine there).
Also, didn't get plate changes between courses which again is poor given the price being paid.
all up $850 for 4 adults and 2 children with one $47 bottle of wine.
