From the stunning entrance, to the beautifully lit garden on leaving, a wonderful experience. The staff were attentive without being intrusive, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The menu diverse and interesting, food exemplary. And of course the outstanding views.
Lovely place l, friendly staff, food was very nice and views are amazing
I took my friend for her birthday lunch. She hadn't been before and she thoroughly enjoyed everything about it She was so impressed with the food and views. It was quiet being a Wednesday but that was fine with us.
I have been to bankvale many times and was disappointed with the food this time.
I do not know if t he was a new chef but food very disappointing
Amazing 😉 views we love coming here. Beautiful gardens and roses. Cellar door very convenient
Enjoy a lovely evening at this little gem of a of a restaurant. Our waitress Mel was fantastic.
Food was delicious, service impeccable... a little bit noisy for my liking, but then again that was probably because all the diners were enjoying themselves... a really enjoyable night. Definitely come back.
Highly recommended. Everything was outstanding! So happy to introduce friends to this incredible venue.
Took a friend for her birthday as I had been before and loved it. She thoroughly enjoyed it. What a beautiful winery do close to the city with excellent views, food and wine. Been recommending it to everyone. Will definitely be back.
Always a quality meal with great service to compliment it. Highly recommend to everyone 😃
Beautiful venue , food was amazing , the views are great, the service was prompt and waiters were friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back
Service brilliant good terrific! Great vegan/gluten free pizza. However we had a 2:45 booking and could not be seated until about 3:10 due to it being so busy! Only hiccup in otherwise great experience
Absolutely fantastic.. Delicious food, great value, great service
Couldn't fault the food or service, it was excellent, as was the Marnong Estate Wine. All pretty good value and will be back for sure.
First impression was good then we got to our table, that’s where it went down hill from there. Asked if we could sit at a table with a view we were immediately told no it’s booked, that booked table wasn’t used until we were leaving very disappointed.
The food was good but if you want somewhere where it’s quiet this isn’t the place the tables are very close to each other and you can’t really sit back and enjoy yourself. Would I go back probably not.......
We've dined here a few times & twice since it reopened after renovations - lunch is always delicious - Thought we'd tried breakfast, surprised to see a buffett which was nice - if you like a bufett - will be back, but not for breakfast
Always a lovely place to dine and service was great however this time I was not impressed with the vegetarian pizza
Food was beautiful. Service was excellent and very accommodating. Will definitely be back. A lovely place to go to for a special occasion. Would highly recommend to my family and friends.
Nice restaurant with a good view. You don't need to come dressed up.
I would recommend cause I believe the surroundings are beautiful and has a wow factor unfortunately our meal had no wow factor
Great views and great food, the architecture is fantastic and the service matched it.
My sisters food was cold, but the management gave us free dessert to compensate.
The service was good!
Love to comeback again with families and friends:)
Love going to Marnong (Bankvale Run) for dinner, haven't been for breakfast for a long time, didn't real enjoy the breakfast buffet loved a normal breakfast menu.
Food was not of the quality I would expect from the level this restaurant is pursuing. Disappointing as the menu and food normally of high standards.
Noise levels are far too high, sound engineering should be implemented to reduce reverberation.
Alternatively, to reduce noise levels overflow dining capacity should be filtered to the outdoor area as this is not utilised as effectively as it could be.
Will come again
Lovely service and afternoon overall
Really nice atmosphere- quality food and great service. This is my 4th visit and it’s consistently great! It’s a special occasion place but fast becoming a good place to meet friends and family for dinner
Very good selection for all palates. From oysters to veg pizza. Very yummy.😘
Beautiful place, wait staff are very friendly and efficient. Menu was ok, would have preferred more gluten free options. It was Valentines so the atmosphere was buzzing and it was a little hard to have a conversation, with the added duo that was entertaining the guests with serenading love songs.
Loved it. Would highly recommend it. Wine was amazing . Highly recommend the calamari
I thought that everything was perfect, The staff were amazing and friendly and the setting was beautiful, The food was prompt and delicious, The 2 piece band they had was also great, The only thing was the steak was a bit chewy otherwise delicious!! Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting a fine dining experience!
Service was fabulous and staff were friendly and attentive but not obtrusive given we had booked a table on one of the busiest nights of the year - Valentine's Day. The meals were well timed and the menu options were varied. We ordered the octopus which had great flavours but was overcooked, whereas the mains had perfectly cooked steaks but the freekah was slightly undercooked. The desserts were well presented and delicious. We ordered the namesake red and white wines and were pleasantly surprised by their beautiful aroma and tastes on the palette. The views were amazing, the ambience and live band were a wonderful addition to making the outing more romantic. I would definitely recommend and would also visit again.
Roast chicken and steak was undercooked. Meals pricey for their quality.
Been there many times, always good food and prices reasonable. It was very busy . full in fact and the service wasn't as good as usual. The food was great the two of us shared plates of calamari, vegetable tempura and antipasto, a glass of wine and a coffee to finish. Going again in three weeks.
Phenomenal garlic pizza to kick off our evening with while the steak was nothing short of amazing - a tad over cooked but amazing none the less. The views of course don't need a comment, they are fantastic!
Venue is great
Breakfast options are OK but a bit more options for children would be better. Pankcakes, waffles or French toast would be amazing. Also, bananas as a fruit option.
Fruit and cold options Were great.
But overall we loved it and will come back!
All of my party of four thoroughly enjoyed lunch at the Bankvale Run.............food was exceptionally flavoursome and appetising, and the service was quiet but efficient.
What an amazing place. My partner and I visited Bankvale Run for the first time last week for our anniversary. We were impressed from the moment we arrived. The food, the service and the view was outstanding. Will certainly be back!
Amazing view, friendly staff and delicious food. I was impressed by the service that they provided
A small family celebration at a venue new to us was very enjoyable. The attentive staff looked after us through our meal while we relaxed at our window table overlooking the rolling hills towards Clarkefield. Tried a selection if Marnong wines which are also recommended. We will be return diners.
