Love love love Oh loretta! The coolest wine bar in the hood. The food is stunning and there's always a terrific selection on the menu. Sam and Lea looked after us and were very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable in all things booze. Look forward to another visit.

Good and varied wine list, reasonably priced. Very helpful staff. Quite noisy because of the fit out, but a good place for an intimate drink with a friend.

Date night with wife.
Music was too loud.
The tiny bit of spanner crab on toast was too expensive at $14.
Wine choices are very good

Excellent food, very reasonably priced, well matched wine list. Sometimes took a bit longer than ideal to get a drink but otherwise a fabulous experience. Highly recommend.

Very smart food, and great service in a low key, local wine bar/cafe atmosphere. Very good value for cooking of this quality.

We loved the retro music that was loud enough to enjoy, but not so loud that we couldn’t hear each other speak.
Appreciated that most items were gluten free without having to modify them. Loved the interesting flavours and textures of food options.
I definitely want to go back! Service was attentive.

The food was quite nice - however the salmon was bland. It was quite disappointing that we booked with the intention of having the set-menu. However, due to a function we were seated outside and not given access to the set-menu that had been promoted on social media.

The service wasn't great. No highchairs available for children. The food was average. The outdoor area had a nice vibe though, filled with plants and would be nice to have a quick drink and move on.

What a great night out! Food was delicious and service was fantastic. The music was a wee bit loud which meant we spent a lot of the night shouting at each other but otherwise A wonderful night all round! Will be back! Thank you!!

Great range of grape varietals from different regions on the wine list. Lots of pescetarian options, the spanned crab crumpet was amazing and the only thing that was a little disappointing was the Blue Cod, otherwise delicious. Attentive and fun staff. Great atmosphere.

Really nice people looking after us. But we thought the food portions were very small. Also, a cocktail we ordered was spectacularly bland. They kindly replaced it with a better one.

We had a great time at Oh Loretta and the staff were lovely. Food was delicious and the space is gorgeous. Unfortunately they had run out of quite a few things we were after - food and drink! Considering we had a 7.30pm booking this was quite a surprise. We still had a great night and would recommend it to anyone.

New chef ex Lakeside Daylesford so top notch menu along with great cocktail selection. It was a little understaffed on the night we dined so found it hard to get waitresses attention and top up our chilling bottle of prosecco which they forgot about so had to knock back our last glass when we planned to make an exit. But all in all it's a great location, atmosphere and cute and cosy wine bar Northcote needed and makes a nice Friday date night. Will be back again for sure.

Amazing service, food & wine.
Kate is the bomb. What a sweetheart. Turned an upside down, weird day the right way around with her impeccable service & enthusiasm in providing her customers with a great night out.
She does all the things you would expect without any pretentiousness or average hipster attitude.

I love this place! Such a great vibe with DJ playing and they manage to get the noise level just right. Staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. Great wine list with lots by the glass and affordable prices. The jalapeño margarita is amazing. Food overall was very good. The waygu steak cooked on a hibachi was a real stand out, as were the Jerusalem artichokes.
A great date restaurant or a place to catch up with friends.
One of my new faves.

Oh Loretta! is an absolute stand-out favourite. So much so that we chose kit for our anniversary celebration. We had found it wonderful, delicious and welcoming prior to this visit - but this last visit blew us away. It really is a gem! The service was impeccable (& I am a service-snob) , every mouthful of food was perfection & we are so very glad that they were able t make it through the forced closures and re-open.

We can't wait to return (though it's always booked now because so many people now know the quality) - well done Oh Loretta!

The food was a little bit disappointing. The green beans salad with pistachios I could just feel the vinegar - it was super overpowered - and the rest was good in general, but a bit expensive for the experience. The staff is amazing though.
