The venue and ambience takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city with time just floating by. The food was extremely nice however slightly on the expensive side, but when taken into account with the great time we had there I didn't resent paying. I would recommend Restaurant Lurleen to anyone but make sure to set aside some time to enjoy the full grounds which you will not regret.

Some of our party had seafood and that was perfect. Others had steaks which were rather tasteless so value for money was not good for those. It was a special event for our party so a little disappointing.

Great food and service, we have been before and that’s why we came back.
The night wasn’t very busy so we didn’t have to wait very long for each course.
We mentioned to the female waiter that it was our wedding anniversary and our dessert came out with “Happy Anniversary” piped in chocolate on the plate, which I thought was a very nice personal touch. Well done! We will definitely be back again!

A farewell dinner for our son visiting from the UK. Food was excellent - two of us had the scallops and Moreton Bay bugs starter and it was fabulous, as was the beetroot vegetarian starter. All of our mains were exceptional and the creme brûlée was superb. The only slight downside was that the cake dessert was a little dry. Service was outstanding and our waitress was really excellent.

Fabulous restaurant environment in the beautiful Sirromet winery's main building with great views over the countryside. The food was innovative & of a very high quality. The suckling pig main was divine as was the smoked venison & pork cheek & octopus entrees. A bottle of Museum Sirromet cabernet shiraz topped it off brilliantly. Will definitely be back.

The food is always superb. The service can often be amiss, especially when you are paying such a high price for food it is important to receive a high standard of service.
It was very noisy on this occasion with people (diners) yelling etc

We’ve been before about 18 months ago and it was fantastic. Had lunch for my birthday yesterday and at this stage would not go back again.
Kids meals were great.
Staff lovely and very attentive
Adult meals...overpriced and average at best.
2 pieces of duck meat with what looked like cannelloni beans...meat nice but just ok beans not nice..$45.
Scallops (couldn’t find them) with 2 small Moreton bay bug meat (couldn’t taste any meat) dumplings $27 in broth which was average.
Tasting platter was nice and perhaps at $24 was the best value of the day.
$230 (including house wine) very expensive day for a very average dining experience.
Last time we went to Tuscan Terrace we also noticed a big difference in the standard of food as well.
Once was a favourite to go with all the family to Sirromet given how lovely the grounds are and the staff always seem nice but until the food is back to the standards of the last executive chef we won’t be back for meals again.

I don't intend on sounding scathing, the food and service were fine.
This restaurant has nailed the balance in that there was nothing wrong with any part of our meals they just weren't amazing or delicious or something we will think about again - next time we will try their cafe.

Scallop entre was way too small. Flavours were there tho. Eye fillet main was dry especially with no sauce . Overall was disappointed. We eat at the courthouse a fair bit and we both rated there good a lot better than yours . Sorry but just being honest.

Our Daughter’s 18th Birthday family Dinner could not have been celebrated in a more beautiful, classy, inviting venue than Restaurant Lurleen’s. Warm friendly staff, delicious food (even catering for gf df) and several Happy 18ths to our Birthday girl made for a wonderful family event. Compliments to the chefs and staff :)

We had a table of eight for lunch. We all felt that the menu did not offer a lot of choice. The men on the table found their meals to be too small and all meals except the steak meal, were overpriced. Not good value for money. We have eaten here previously but not for a lunch. Overall, a bit disappointed.

We had a belated Mother’s Day and birthday dinner, food was just amazing! Chantel was excellent, you couldn’t fault her service at all, just the right amount of attentive and generous with her time.
We will definitely be back, such a treat!

We used to love the food there and give high recommendation to friends & family for years. But from the last visit the food didn't wow us anymore, average & nothing special anymore. The online menu was not updated either. My husband planned to have AA-CO cube roll Wagyu as on the online menu, but unfortunately it wasn't on the card menu. Staff told us it has been change for months, but they didn't update the online menu. It's disappointed for fine dining like Lurleen restaurant level has outdated menu.

Our 40th anniversary- food was delicious but the waitress had to be reminded about something regarding our order in two occasions. She was lovely but obviously busy.

Service and venue are great.
Food is really tastey but not good value for money.
For example scallop entre for $27.00 had only 3 scallops.
Desert advertised as 'share' for $27.00 was a single bowl of delicious pudding, but not enough for two.
We did have a nice lunch and Hannah was an excellent waiter.

Food is very good but expensive for what it is. The background musak is annoying, not what I would expect in that class of restaurant. Service was a bit over attentive but friendly. Overall we would return but I think the menu needs to change more often and to have a better range of meals.

Not quite as spectacular as we remember from past visits. Maybe the seasonal menu didn't appeal quite as much as usual but the wow factor from the food was definitely lacking compared to past experience. Maybe the chef has changed? and not everyone is passionate about Sirromet wines so moderating the price a little for non-Sirromet offerings would encourage greater sales. We would have had some non Sirromet wine but the price was double that of other quality restaurants forcing us to think twice. But staff are great and ambience second to none

Enjoyed a lovely lunch. Our server (Marie) was extremely good, and very knowledgeable about the menu and gave some good suggestions. We are looking forward to our daughter's wedding at Sirromet at the end of the year, and seeing the quality of the food and service, we are really looking forward to the event even more.

Have been to this restaurant for breakfast and dinner quite a few times over the years and have really enjoyed the food. This time we were a party of four and all mains were disappointing. I had the veal dish and the jus was so over salted it made the dish hard to enjoy. My husband and another had the crab linguine that had such an overpowering tomato base that the crab was lost in it.
