Unfortunately only 2 out of 8 of us were satisfied with our meal. 3 of us had steak. Why can't we get vegetables with our steak? The chips were like they had been sitting for a day. Dreadful. I ordered garlic bread which is actually a foccacia. This was just OK. Perhaps a better idea would be the ability to pay for our meals as we go. Too hard to split bills at the end of the night. Twice we were given a Rose instead of a Pinot Grigio. A staff member did come to our table during the night to ask if our meals were OK. We did not go into details with her as we had just got our meals.

A very noisy environment, a somewhat limited menu and very expensive drinks, should’ve just gone to the café down the road which looked a lot better. The special of the day the roast beef was pretty ordinary and the vegetables not very desirable. Wouldn’t be back in a hurry.

Such a beautiful ambience with lovely, welcoming staff. Clearly a popular place among locals and visitors alike. The food was delicious and served without delay despite the busyness of the weekend lunch rush. Without doubt we would return.

I've eaten at the Grand Hotel Warrandyte a many times in past 30 years. Always enjoy it, and am happy to see that the environment and atmosphere, as well as food, is getting better each time. Or I (we) just like it more each time. The service is excellent, staff friendly. Prices are reasonable.
On whole a very pleasant dining experience. Will surely be back.

We were a party of seven celebrating travelling overseas. We all had a fantastic time whilst at the Grand
enjoying good food and company. Comments were made that the drinks were getting a bit pricey, especially the cocktails.
Overall we enjoyed our night out.

As locals we like to support local businesses but find that the menu hasn’t changed in at lest a couple of years. The food quality was reasonable but nothing special and our main courses came immediately after we had finished our entrees.

Food is good. Better than your average pub food but it can be a bit pricey. Atmosphere is good, noisy at times but generally a good pub vibe. Friendly and efficient staff. Great location.

The Grand Hotel Warrandyte is in a great location, is nice inside and not too noisy. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Food was quite good for the cost although the chips were so salty as to be virtually inedible. Happy overall and would certainlt come back as I like a good pub.

everything was really good except the quinoa and pumpkin salad was average and the fish added was dry and really a waste of money.
the wine by the bottle is expensive
Everything else good.

Lovely night with friends. Food was good and we sat at a table away from the main dining room which made it far easier to chat as the noise level was good.

Group of 6. Some dishes very good, others not so much. A bit pricy for a hotel, even the Grand. Sitting near the main door meant plenty of cold breeze each time it opened.

The food was fantastic, and the service was warm and friendly.
It would be great to see more local produce and wine on the menus - as the Warrandyte Hotel is well placed to showcase the Yarra Valley, and surrounding areas.

Thank you for your review, We have investigated your visit and found that you only waited 35 minutes to receive your meals. Not all guests were seated at your table until 20min past your booking time. We feel waiting 35min for your meals on a busy Friday night is more than acceptable and in turn does not equate to bad service. As a friend of the grand, we wish you had said something on the night if you had any issues. Thank you

Service was pleasant enough... although she admitted to a head cold *sneezing around us! Aaaagh
One member of our party stated "no dairy", and yet it still came on her food. I felt $42 for my Eye Fillet was exorbitant. Its the highest I have seen this price for a long time. But my partner insisted I get it.
