Excellent lunch experience great food, service and attention to detail. Couldn’t fault the food course combinations and flavours. We really had a terrific dining experience for my special birthday. The Estate wines excellent the Pinot Noir was my favourite which was better than those NZ imports. Can’t wait until we revisit again.

We arrived not knowing what to expect having done no further research than a quick glance at the (thoroughly deserved) highest rating in the search results for the area... Our evening was exactly what we’d hoped. Stunning vineyard setting. Immersive architecture. Unique flavours artfully plated (the Cavatelli OMG); well matched with estate grown wine. The service however unexpectedly became the highlight of the night; our waiter Con couldn’t have been more affable, what a power of knowledge and personality — and so my only regret for the night was that I didn’t leave a large enough tip! Sorry Con! Highly recommend for any special occasion. Well done to the entire team at Ezards at Levantine Hill.

The pescatarian menu was great and food outstanding. Service could improve. Little touches make a big difference for a restaurant of this calibre. Attending to guest's when they arrive could be improved, eg. acknowledging guest by their name. I had noted it was my partner's birthday, it would have been lovely to have my partner been greeted accordingly. Worse though was when we were leaving, despite the restaurant only having us and one other couple at the time, there was no one to see us off. I find this very poor. Again, a restaurant of this calibre should have these little touches as part of their service.

This is a high class restaurant with a lovely setting. The service was good and all the food was summarized by the staff but they kept giving us sparkling water in lieu of still. We had the 7 course degustation. The food is exceptional and all prepared with thought and creativity. I just feel for the amount you pay you should be getting more food in your main dishes. The entrees and desert are fine just more food across the 3 main dishes, Having said we had a great night and I thought the wine match was exceptional. We will be back for another special occasion one day,

The best part of Ezard at LH is the food. We had the five course degustation, which was absolutely fantastic! The venison was a highlight, soft like butter and so flavourful. The cuttlefish was absolutely packed with warm earthy flavours, so amazing. Everything we had was so tasty!

The service was great! We went for my wife’s birthday, which they made special by wishing her happy birthday on arrival, and added chocolate writing to the desert dish! The wait staff were really on point, describing the meals perfectly, as well as recommending amazing wines when we wanted (we opted to not get the wine pairing with the meals).

What a great location, really nice view, and will be improved once they finish the construction of the wine processing building at the top of the hill on the property.

Highly recommend Ezard!

Beautiful experince in the Signature Restaurant. 5 course tasting menu was delicious. Wine matching worked well and we didn't have to think about what to choose off the wine list! Staff were knowledgeable and attentive. It was an expensive lunch but well worth it for a special occasion. Will be back to try the all day dining.

The five course degustation was superb - complex flavours and textures, with every course having its own strengths. We did a wine tasting with Paul before lunch, and he took care of our wine questions over lunch as well - he was incredible with his passion and knowledge, down to knowing which forest in France the wood for the barrels came from! We were let down a bit with our waiter, who clearly invested more time on another table and left us unattended for long lengths of time. At this price point, we shouldn't have to walk to the counter to ask for our bill.

Three of us had lunch, last Sunday. Whilst expensive, the food was exceptional. The portion sizes and the space between courses meant that it wasn’t rushed and could comfortably fit in all the dishes.
The service from John was outstanding - right up to the point where he had to finish up, with two courses remaining. From then on the service fell off the cliff. The remaining staff were inattentive and hard to find. We had to prompt them for coffee, otherwise we looked like missing out. Not good enough for a restaurant of this caliber!

Having been recommended by a couple of people as a place to take a special someone for a lovely dining experience, I was excited to say the least. Everything held up and exceeded my expectations. The surprise little touch of the birthday message on the dessert plate topped off the superb 5 courses (and mine was vegetarian) and delicious signature sparking wine that we had.

First 2 dishes too similar in presentation with broth being poured. Uninspired.
Pork belly was way too fat with poor presentation.
Beef texture wasn't refined, it was coarse visually.
Butter should be truffle butter to make the bread a winner.
Female server mumbled and spoke too fast through description of each dish.
We found the pacing of food way too slow between each dish.

The winner in the entire lunch was the salted caramel ice cream.

Food was lovely. Unfortunately we were a table of 2 situated amongst 3 tables of 4 people with a couple of the tables very rowdy. Did ruin our experience and feel that perhaps in future you could situate tables of 2 a little away from the bigger tables. The restaurant wasn't full and this could have been done fairly easily I feel. Wines were lovely as well particularly the Pinot Noir - really loved this!

Let’s be honest, this is a premium experience with a price to match. So if you are wanting to have an indulgent and incredible meal with staff who are friendly and knowledgeable as well as make you feel relaxed, then you won’t be disappointed. Our Danish guests regularly visit high end restaurants and rated this up with the best...and so did we. Levantine Hill does the Yarra Valley proud.
