My partner and I had such a special Valentine’s Day. The food was absolutely amazing and Very fast we definitely didn’t go hungry also the wine was lovely. We were so well looked after and sat in the perfect spot. Our waiters were incredibly friendly and had great knowledge of the menu and the wines. All in all we would 100 percent recommend and will be returning ASAP.

Boutique style wine bar / restaurant with excellent food. Wine choices are a bit limited especially "by the glass" which would otherwise allow a selection of wines to be chosen during a visit.

Paddock & Vine was a fabulous find on a wet cold Friday. The food and service were outstanding - very quickly to table and thoroughly enjoyable. Mona Vale residents visit Paddock & Vine, you won't be disappointed!

This was our second visit to this place and we will be back for more! The staff are very welcoming and helpful with recommendations not only regarding food choices, but wine (which, btw, is exceptional). Portions are of decent size and really yummy. Tried baked mushroom gnocchi, lamb shoulder (super tender and with almond puree!), grilled octopus, and ravioli. Their cheese arancini for an entrée is outstanding; you should also try grilled chorizo there. Both hit the spot!
Having said that, I would like to see more seafood options on the menu. There is no fish for main - I'm sure this would be a great addition to this (already) wonderful place. Thank you.

Great restaurant in MV. Service was great and the food really good. Mid-range prices but worth it. We will definitely return.

We enjoyed some lovely tapas meals. The pate was great and plenty of it. The new caramelised onion garlic bread everyone must try

I have been to paddock and vine several times now and have so far always enjoyed it. Service is usually very good and friendly, food is always delicious. However on this occasion it was a little less so. I had booked a table for 2 online for mid week and got taken to a high table on arrival. There was another lower table free just next to us and when I asked our waitress if we could move because I have lower back problems and she told us no because it had been booked. Well, we booked too and there was no one sitting there and then a few mins later we asked a different waitress and she moved us no problem. And nobody came to sit at our old table just so you know! Then we ordered the pasta special which for some reason you have to ask for as you don’t advertise it, and it was actually very disappointing. I have had the ravioli there before and this was very small serving and quite frankly pretty poor in comparison to previous occasions. I will still come back for another chance, every one has their off day’s but still, thought you should know.

Played golf at Mona vale and had dinner following. Menu was just right, service was excellent and quality of food was also excellent. We live an hour and half north so we were pleased paddock and vine didn’t disappoint. Will return the next time we are in the city. Thanks for a very pleasant night.

Really nice place with a great ambience and feel + nice decor. Halloumi + Arancini entrees were awesome and well portioned! Mains were somewhat underwhelming, however, but good value nonetheless. Surprised though that cocktails weren’t on the menu, especially with its potential given the nice bar area. Service was also good, and everything arrived together and in good time!
Was recommended to me and would recommend to again!

We really enjoyed our dinner. The ambience and service was excellent. The food was fresh and tasty and the portion size was very good. The only reason I never gave them a 5 star rating was I found the bread a little thin and dry - and I would have liked a small bit of salad or veg with my eggplant dish - it was just a half eggplant on the plate - very tasty but it just needed something else to have it with!

It was our first time at Paddock & Vine. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we all ( 4 girl friends) had a really nice time. The service was fantastic, the food amazing and the wine list great. We will be back for sure! :)

We tried Paddock & Vine (twice) when it first opened a couple of years ago and were underwhelmed. Thankfully after some feedback from friends, we gave it another go this week and I'm so glad we did. The food was delicious (eggplant was a stand out) and the service was excellent. For dessert we shared the brownie with caramel but it was a little too rich and heavy (even with 2 people sharing). Other than that, I couldn't fault it. Its a beautiful space and the wines were excellent. Its a little pricy but I feel its worth it. So glad we came back - we'll be back again!

Quite outstanding - from being looked after from the moment we walked through the door, to our beautiful meal. By far, the best gnocchi I have ever tasted (which is my favorite dush) and my friend’s pasta dish was equally good. A great experience - highly, highly recommended! 🤗🤗🤗

Simply a great place to go have a nice tasty meal, and to wash it down with one of the many great wines on offer, food was simple but very tasty. I'll happily go back soon

We were a table of 4, all our meals came out at the one time, each one of us really enjoyed our meals. The lamb shanks were so tender and tasty, the steak was perfect and the pasta dish was savoured. Well done Paddock and Vine. We have been before and we're going to make it a fortnightly date.

Asked if I would recommend...can’t give a Yes or No answer. Food was tasty but when you actually get 10 pieces of Gnocchi (I don’t normally count pieces of Gnocchi btw) its a bit of a let down.
If I wanted snooty fine dining i would go to one of those restaurants.
Service and ambience was great. Meals just need to reflect the size that ‘homemade, down to earth’ feel that the name suggests ‘Paddock & Vine’. 3/5
