Had only ever stopped in for a drink ages ago. Very impressed with the whole experience from booking to meals end. Summa replied to my email promptly and she was so nice when I popped in to ask questions about the seating. The girls looked after so well with warmth and just the right amount of attentiveness. The food was so delicious with my gnocchi being next level incredible which would have been absolutely perfect if there were just a couple more spoonfuls on the plate. Will most certainly be back! 😊🍷👍🏼
Amazing local. Always beautiful food, great service and fabulous wines.
Great service and food, warm and inviting.
Great to be back in the Vale! Wonderful experience, hoping you bring back the goats cheese lavosh with agave!
We were very impressed with decor, the fire place , the whole back area where we were sitting. Staff were excellent and were even happy for us to take silly snaps of the four of us,seeing it was our first dinner after coming out of isolation. Perfect start to some normality and post iso
Beautiful setting. Fun and friendly service. Feed me menu was delicious and easy!
A great night. The food and service at The Vale is exceptional. The staff are attentive and fun and really add to the experience. The food is wonderfully prepared and great value. Love coming here.
Always enjoy the service, food and drinks at the Vale. Highly recommended.
It’s our regular hot spot! Love the staff, warm, welcoming & service for me !!! 2nd to none
It’s come a long way and I’ve seen many changes... ATM, for me, it’s on my “MUST” list
Keep up the amazing work guys , you rock 🥳🥂🍾
Absolutely loved our evening - the food was beautiful. A little dissapointed that with the change in menu as there is not as much share food...of course, the beautiful Charcuterie & Cheese Boards are still excellent.
Second time I've been to The Vale. Took a friend from Sydney. She couldn't get over such a nice place being in the middle of a quiet suburb. Am looking forward to many more visits to The Vale.
I absolutely love this place, the food, the cocktails and the Good vibes make it a great night out. I feel so lucky to have this as my neighbourhood bar!
The service was first class. Staff know their wines and ask questions to ensure you get what you want. We had the Pinot Blanc which was sensational. The mushroom truffle pizza and eggplant dish and gem lettuce were fabulous. Ralph was a charming host. I was very proud to show off this place to interstate guests.
Fantastic service, the food was absolutely delicious and the drinks second to none. Good vibes, great neighbourhood bar/restaurant!
The menu seems to have changed and the portion has reduced somehow for the price . Food and wine still great. Value for money is questionable.
This is a great venue, I have been here for dinner, drinks with my friends and now a corporate catch up. Its a great venue and the staff are so warm and welcoming they definitely make the place. Those Elderflower cocktails are amazing.
Great atmosphere, good food and extensive wine list.
Fantastic venue, great food and exceptional service
I have found my new local favourite. WOW! Great wine, amazing service and the foods great too. Hats off to Ralph, service was impeccable!!
Lovely bar and atmosphere downstairs but we were seated upstairs and we could hear the noise level coming down to greet us. Definitely not for a date night outing for two and people were shouting over each other. Quieter when their food arrived. Other than noise it was a good experience and waitress was professional and staff friendly. Will request downstairs next visit.
Fantastic staff, great food, wonderful drinks and beautiful little place!
Loved it, definitely going back again.
A great place to spend time with friends, enjoying nice wine and delicious food.
Really lovely staff and a great cozy ambience. We will be back.
Bit stingy on the nuts and cheese in the salad.
Love this local bar. Th staff and service was great, we had a party of 12 and they were very accommodating .
Great set up, walked in, service and greeting was great, sat at our table. Service was great, food came out in a timely fashion, enjoyed the food. would defiantly go back again and would recommend to other people
Thank you for a great evening.. definitely found the sweet spot in ascot Vale..
I love this place! I recommend it to anyone. However it can get noisy if there is a lot of people around. However this adds to the vibe :-)
Great local with fab food and wine choice. The interior is a little noisy and the service could have been better. It took 25 minutes from the minute we sat down to be asked for a drink order. They also cleared glasses without asking if we wanted to order more. Food was a little slow as well. In fairness, it was a busy night. Would go back and give the service another go.
WE ordered the cheese for two
the portions were tiny and at $22 was poor value
Otherwise ambience was good
service staff were over stretched
Have been keen to eat here and the food didn't disappoint. Great taste and good portion sizes. The Arancini balls were very special, as was the calamari and sweet potato chips! Love the variety of drinks on offer as well. Fabulous service and very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in which to eat and socialise. Looking forward to going back again !
I love the Vale and its a welcome addition to Union Road. Saturday night was extremely busy so there was a little bit of a wait on service and drinks. Other than that , it was great as usual
Overall great experience. Good vibe and atmospheres. Impressive wine list and great menu.
I've eaten at the Vale 3 times now and every time I've been, the food and service have been wonderful. I would absolutely recommend the Vale to friends and locals.
Love this place but it’s consistently understaffed and noise level too high. Add some sound deadening materials please.
Amazing atmosphere, super friendly staff who know their stuff and the food is divine. A++++
Great ambience always lively and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. More wine bar with food than restaurant
Amazing service food and drinks. Service is excellent
If you’re looking for a new neighbourhood bar, The Vale is unequivocally it. Uncomplicated delicious food.
A relaxed, yet energetic vibe.
The service is sharp; the cocktails sexy.
