I’ve been a few times and the Food, service and ambiance are good to very good. It’s a great restaurant for a group of friends or family.

I have no hesitation in recommending.

Nice cocktails to start, shared some pizza and other small plates for entree (soft shell crab a winner) enjoyed the beautifully cooked barramundi for main and couldn’t go past the sticky date for dessert! Such an enjoyable evening of yummy food with friendly service :)

Cosy rustic dining. Filling portions. Price a little high but worth it for the occasional special lunch. Wish they offered dinner.

Very relaxed and chill environment
Enjoyable waiting area
Food is amazing
Would have been nice to be moved to a bigger area as we had a lot of meals shared amongst ourselves and is a shame because there was table that were available.
But overall enjoyed the night.

Being the second night the venue was opened since new restrictions were eased, we did expect a few teething problems and were totally understanding of that fact!
On several occasions a staff member put her arm around us and did not display any consideration of social distancing whatsoever.
Part of what we ordered did not come to the table, despite a few reminders. Three of our drink orders were mixed up, including the addition of alcohol in the mock tail which was ordered. This was an issue as the quest we were with was pregnant!
An apology would have sufficed but instead they questioned our order and took little responsibility.
There was also one pen for all patrons to write their details down regarding covid tracing guidelines. We would have thought that one employee at the door taking patrons details would be far more hygienic given the current climate.
On a plus, the food was incredible and the atmosphere was incredible, which is why we visited!
Hope these teething issues relating to the new restrictions are ironed out swiftly, as we will not be returning during the pandemic if they’re not.
Would usually recommend to everyone we know who is visiting the area, but we won’t be at the moment!

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Epicurean over the weekend. We were late for our booking which they kindly accommodated as we called in advance but then it did take 10 or so minutes to seat us. This was related to restrictions on numbers but just to note. We had a brie cheese that was extremely strong (almost too strong I would say - and we almost never shy away from a strong cheese) as well as a salami pizza accompanied by a lovely Pinot by the Station. It seemed like they probably could have done with a few more staff but overall food and wine were delicious and a really great relaxed lunch vibe!

Main course was not quite hot.
Very attentive waitresses (plural) were just a bit too attentive. I think one happy smiling efficient and attentive waitress is better than three.
Doof doof/bang crash music over dinner does not suit me.

The service was slow and wait staff forgetful. Asked which water we would like but brought none so 20 mins later we asked for it again. Ordered 2 beers - again took forever. Our next drink order, again after 20 mins had to remind them. The waiters sitter he had forgotten. Food was expensive and average at best. Asked for Parmesan for a pasta , it never came. Noise level was extremely high as wait staff pushed and dragged the metal chairs across concrete floors. Won’t be going back - overpriced and there are better places elsewhere .

We didn’t realise how big the restaurant was and on a Sunday night how noisy it was. It’s definitely geared for families with small children which is fine but not what we expected. I thought $18 for a bowl of fries a bit excessive and because of the loud noise we only chose calamari and fries to get out as quickly as we could.
The service was fine and the food okay.

My favourite restaurant to visit when I’m down the peninsular! The food is always of such high quality, and the wine is also very nice. The staff are very friendly and quick when it comes to service. My favourite dish is the gnocchi and all of their pizzas!!!

Great food, the shed design is fantastic. The only down side is that being inside the shed you do not get that winery vibe which you might be after being in Red Hill.

Food and service was good but ridiculously
expensive especially due to public holiday. We were not told when we booked there would be a 15% surcharge. Disappointing!
