We had an amazing day at Gather made memorable by the lovely Beth and all staff. Beth helped us choose the perfect wine and was very knowledgeable in our meal presentation. A special place for a special day.

Took the wife for a romantic lunch. The place itself is beautiful, we had a great table by the window with lovely views across the vineyards.
We ordered the 5 course set menu. The 7 course was the same just with olives to start and cheese to finish so wasn’t an appealing upgrade to us.
The first dish came out and was quite nice but we had to share and were expecting to get our own as there was no mention on the menu of sharing. It was a pleasant start with thin crisp zucchini a nice basil oil and some curd.
Then the calamari came out. It was ok. Pretty bland and had the same basil oil.
Then the Roo ... this was served blue very lightly seared on the outside and raw in the middle. Quite off putting at first and served cold so quite unpleasant texturally as well. And same basil oil.
The beef was nice (just nice) but again served very rare. The egg plant was smoky and overcooked. The potatoes were meh and needed seasoning. Guess what oil ....
Then the dessert was underwhelming. Sliced figs (very nice and in season) on a not quite mousse not quite custard chocolate thing and again very out of place the basil oil!! They must have a barrel of it they’re trying to get rid of.
At $70 a head I won’t go back. $180 including our drinks.
The staff were lovely and our waitress couldn’t have been any more attentive or friendly so a big positive there.
We did a wine tasting and that was great. Again very attentive, informative and friendly.
Such a shame the food was a let down.

Thanks for taking time to review your experience at Gather at Coriole, unfortunately, we were phasing out the stout and sold the last stubby the day before. I'm sorry the chardonnay from the Yarra Valley was temporarily unavailable in the restaurant, but pleased you enjoyed the Coriole wine recommended by James.

Magnificent food and best wine in the Vale (Chenin Blanc and Mary Kathleen Cab Sav).
We started with the crab and house made bread to dip in the creamy parsley sauce, then salad with burnt peach dressing, kangaroo with macadamia mash and Warragul greens and the zucchini carpaccio with roast tomatoes. So, so tasty, elegantly presented and perfectly matched with our wine and stunning hilltop views.
Staff were friendly and attentive but not overly so. The meal was topped off with a laughter-filled romp in the cellar door with the fabulous “Bun” - full of knowledge and fun.
The gardens outside were blooming and stunning. A very gorgeous experience from start to finish - thanks everyone at Coriole who helped make our early Valentine’s lunch such a hit.

Always enjoy ourselves here. Welcomed into restaurant by lovely staff. It's great not having to make any food decisions. However, on this occasion we found a couple of the courses disappointing. The lentil combo in the first entree a bit odd and the kangaroo to follow fairly tasteless. The two fishermen at the table were in awe of the squid, this you have to understand is an amazing achievement as they are completely fish mad. The roast beef and dessert were fantastic. We look forward to coming back, hoping that next time there might be a choice in the five course feed me (as previously?)

The 7 course degustation was a great selection of seasonal and local produce.
The paired wines were truly excellently matched with the menu.

The best part of the overall experience was the wonderful staff. Knowledgeable, efficient and professional in every way, with very friendly demeanours making us feel so special.

Even though it was very hot (42 degree) Jane and her staff did everything to accommodate us. Kelly's service was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. The setting is beautiful and and on a nice day would be lovely sitting outside on the verandah overlooking the beautiful gardens.

Unfortunately, I can’t rate the place higher:(. The food was extremely disappointing. I had a lot of set menus around Victoria and a few in Adelaide. I wasn’t impressed. I had the 7 course menu alone with wine pairing. The wines were good.

The service was exceptional and so was the atmosphere of the place.It’s a perfect place for a cheese platter and wine.

Saying that, I am sure the food is being loved by many others. The place was packed with many happy faces. So guessing the crowd enjoyed the food. It just wasnot for me and my partner sadly.

Sorry I had to share my honest review but I genuinely wish the food was good as I had a lovely time there overlooking the beautiful vines and welcoming nature of the staff members.

Coriole food is visually pleasing but also incredibly delicious. Their 5-course menu option is perfect for a long lunch and the variety of food would please almost anyone. Every component is on the plate for a reason and makes for a wonderful meal. Then, of course, there is the wine, I have always been a huge fan of Coriole wine. We had a 2016 Fiano and (2016?) Barbera and they were perfect. Saddened to hear that the Barbera will no longer be made but am definitely happy I picked that off the wine list! Finally, the service, fantastic waitstaff, friendly and informative and also a few laughs which is just what you want for a lunch time meal in this beautiful venue. Can't wait to go back!
