We had the best meal here a few nights ago. The service was on pointe - all staff were lovely.
The food is amazing. We had the raw fish - delicious, then the Wood Fired Mushrooms - now these were the best and also some House Terrine.
Then we shared an impeccable cut of steak (600gm). It was so tender.
Thank you everyone for a lovely evening.

Visited this Restaurant for Sunday lunch on the October long weekend as a couple. Ordered a half dozen Smoky Bay Oysters, Butchers Cut Steak and Silver Dory specials as well as a garden salad. Food was excellent. Bottle of Area blend Chardonnay set off the meal well. Service was good. Staff were very accommodating with the accessibility needs of our party. Thank you for a lovely lunch and experience. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Hunter Valley.

Went to dinner with some friends on a Saturday night. We decided on the chefs menu (3 course). For a group of ladies that always polish off our plates, we could not finish the amount of food served (staff were happy to give us containers to take leftovers). Every course was exceptional. Oysters some of the best I've ever had. Gnocchi was out of this world. Choc hazelnut mousse to finish and I was in heaven. Service was friendly and polished but not intrusive. Could not fault the food and service at all. Would definitely recommend.

We actually ate at Brokenwood Winery where The Wood restaurant is, but we ate outside at Cru Bar + Pantry which has the same menu. Some of the photos posted on TripAdvisor for The Wood restaurant are actually of the Cru eatery. (TripAdvisor doesn’t not currently have a listing for Cru Bar + Pantry). Anyway, I’m sure that my comments apply equally to both.
Brokenwood has a very large, very modern, food and wine centre building. Unfortunately, there isn’t much of a view from either the restaurant or the Al fresco Cru section (which looks directly into the carpark. Where we ate was situated under a trellis covered with exuberant vines and was sunny and delightful. The waitresses were all very pleasant, efficient and chatty and answered our questions about the menu and the function centre.
We ate here originally, 2 days ago, but had to return because the food was so delicious. Originally, I had the chargrilled quail and a main of Wagyu. That was heavenly. Today I repeated the quail but shared a slow cooked lamb shoulder and spring vegetables with my wife. The lamb was well cooked (slightly dry) and was served with half of butternut pumpkin with melted blue cheese and a generous portion of roast potatoes. The spring vegetables included zucchini flowers, charred asparagus, beans and corn. I paired my meal with a Brokenwood shiraz. I’m a big eater, but both of us were full and just managed to finish all of the food. The cost was $125 which I considered an excellent price for such a divine lunch. My favourite course was the Wagyu I had 2 days ago. If it’s on the menu, get it. It’s unbeatable.
One of the best courses I have ever eaten.
