We really enjoyed the cheese and wine pairings. We ordered a few bits and pieces. Just thought serving sizes were fairly small for the price. However customer service was great!

Had a group booking for 7. It’s not our first time at either of the two venues, and it still managed to exceed our high expectations. Waiters were wonderful (as always). I finally tried the degustation and I have no regrets - so fun! Also, the sweet baked Brie was amazing, as well as the cherry boozy gelato.

Milk the Cow's fantastic service is almost as memorable as the cheese, and that's saying something! The staff are always so knowledgeable and helpful, bubbly and friendly. The food is outstanding and the booze matches are always spot on. This is me and my partner's favourite date night spot. Thanks everyone at Milk the Cow for always bringing us back.

When visiting Melbourne I always arrange to meet friends at Milk the Cow in Carlton. The menu, service and ambience is always fantastic. If only they could open a premises in Brisbane!

After a great first experience at Milk the Cow, I recommended my friends and I go there on Saturday. What a disappointment! The service was terrible. The waiters forgot to take our order and once we received our order, they never once checked in or asked if we wanted to order more drinks (which we would have)!

Loved it. If you love wine and cheese, visit at least once in your lifetime.

This is a fun and unique cheese + alcohol pairing experience. Milk the Cow pairs beer, wine and spirits with complementary cheeses (cheeses, cocktails and drinks by the glass also available a la carte, as well as all the necessary accompaniments to good cheese) and provides an extensive explanation on why on how it all goes together. An absolute must for the cheese lovers out there and, for those who usually find wine and cheese pairing events a bit lacklustre, this has all the tastes (and then some!) of the event without the pretension.

There was a slight mix up with our booking but the staff were lovely and did their best to accommodate us and offered complimentary drinks to make up for it. The food was excellent, staff knowledgeable and friendly, and overall our group had a fantastic time. We can’t wait to come back again!
