I have never wrote a bad review but felt I needed to. We were late making dinner plans on Saturday night so rang the restaurant at 8pm asking if they had a table for two for that night. The woman on the phone said yes, to come at 8:45pm and we would be seated. Before we could give our name or number she hung up. She was friendly thou and we understood it was the a long weekend so the restaurant was busy. We arrived at 8:40pm and a young girl with brown hair came from behind the bar and we asked had she a table for two. She said they were fully booked and we needed a reservation to dine. We explained that we rang at 8pm and the woman on the phone didn't take our name. She repeated that they were fully booked and we needed a reservation. So I explained again, before we could give our name to the lady on the phone she hung up. The girl was very dismissive and said she would speak to her manager, however just walked roughly three footsteps away, whispered to a fellow male worker, and repeated to us that they were fully booked and we needed a reservation. I am not one to cause a scene and I do understand being the long weekend that the staff were under pressure but this staff member was very dismissive and did't attempt to ever let me finish my sentence explaining that we did ring ahead. Such a shame as the restaurant looked beautiful and the smell was very inviting.

Had an awesome dinner there. Service is great(Charlie was attentive and great host) food was delicious and plentiful. Great wine list and bar available. And the fire pit is very cozy! They also have a courtesy bus that you can book to pick you up and drop you off so you dont need to drive there. All pluses all around!some fotos of food and the location attached!

Recently stayed at Pokolbin, which was great, but was raining the whole time, so opted to have dinner at this restaurant as it offered courtesy bus pickup from our accomodation at the Leisure In. We were surprised this service not on offer for most places in an area where wine tasting prevents driving. So glad we went here, the food was great, staff super friendly and the restaurant was beautiful. Highly recommend, we actually visited a second time during our stay.
