Review of Herd Bar & Grill

Herd Bar & Grill
Ranked #2 of 60 Restaurants in Healesville
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 6 - USD 19
Description: Herd Bar & Grill incorporates an urban meets rural interior offering something unique and completely new to the Yarra Valley. This subterranean bunker wouldn’t be out of place in the city and has been likened to any groovy bar in New York City. Chef Trevor's food style is modern Australian influenced by his love for Middle Eastern flavours and encourages shared plate grazing or dining. Boasting a late licence, Herd Bar caters and is welcoming to all, offering sensational service, ambience in an unpretentious relaxed space, a must destination whist meaning the glorious Yarra Valley.

It’s Friday night prior to the grand final in Melbourne.
It read the reviews on trip advisor & they were right, both co-owners are working, no booking was made! But we got a table.
I had lamb ribs & couscous, whilst my partner had the burger.
It was great,
The atmosphere was awesome, I do not work for this place, so don’t think this review is bull. But after dinner we walked into the local pub & heard the girl on reception arguing about someone’s dinner booking. You don’t arugula, you serve.
Thank you for your welcome, service & great food...
Trip advisor won’t let me rate.
So
Great service
Great value
Great food

A business dinner for over 20 people. Service was very good considering that the restaurant was quite busy with other diners. We were lucky enough to be provided with a private location which was tucked away. The steaks are well presented, although it was unusual to find them already cut upon presentation. The wine list is quite good with many of the local wines available on the menu.
Recommended.

Thanks AUSBKK for taking the time to comment, we are pleased your group enjoyed your experience with us. As the menu is designed Tapas style, by definition it is intended to be shared among the table, hence the reason why our talented chef chooses to cut steaks after resting and prior to presentation. Thanks also for the recommendation, much appreciated.

Visited here with my wife after a skydive at Lilydale airport.

We were looking for a place to have a late lunch and happened upon this place.

Service was excellent - the person who served us knew his stuff and was obviously very proud of the restaurant. And the food was simple but absolutely cracking - I ordered a wagyu beef cheeseburger and I have honestly never had a better beef patty.

Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a meal in Healesville.

We stopped in for a Saturday night dinner after a busy day. Without a booking we were seated quickly and very attentively served while in.
Food was of a great quality and drinks fulfilled quickly
