Delicious, well thought out food that came out very quickly. Friendly service. Cosy atmosphere - highly recommended!
The server there was super welcoming and warm not to mention personable. We felt super welcome and beautifully farewelled as we were leaving.
Early dinner at the Vale. Food was lovely. Overall a nice evening.
Great range of food and drinks; the amount we ordered was perfect! Standouts were the crab tostada, the roasted celeriac special, and the choc passion fruit parfait. Lovely service. My only negative was I found the restaurant a little cold. Otherwise a really lovely date night for my husband and I
Try the 'chef selection' you get a random assortment of items off the menu. Takes difficult process of choosing away!
Great wine selection and the food is delicious! Try the croquettes
Lovely night, great food, wine very pricey, wine 300% on normal cost.
It took ages for someone to come up and take our drink order. The place was nearly empty so it wasn’t busy.
Chef’s selection was just ok and the meat was a bit cold.
Atmosphere is great. Cocktails were great too
We booked outside table at 8.30 p.m. Wonderful service, great COVID safe practices, lovely food and the cocktails were amazing!!! Have to highlight the fantastic service, prompt, friendly and they went above and beyond to meet expectations. Thank you!!!
Lovely local restaurant with very flavoursome food, extensive wine list & great atmosphere. Staff always friendly & helpful each time we've been there.
As a regular we dine at this venue weekly prior to Covid-19. We have always loved our visits and continue to rave about the service, food, wine selection. Sadly, we have returned back now this has been our 3rd time since January and I was quite disappointed with our experience most recently! I was quite embarrassed as I had been raving about our favourite wine n dine venues and this time round if I could have just walked out I would have! The couple we dined with could not understand why I had recommended the venue and I was lost for words. We were not greeted upon entry, we found our way around and the service has dropped dramatically! The poor staff member was trying to juggle so much, he was new and very lovely, however, no one else bothered to come and check with us about any questions we had regarding the menu etc! We ordered a selection from their menu and asked for it to be brought out together. That failed to happen so each single dish was brought out one at a time! So we could not enjoy the experience of sharing or sampling each dish. It was embarrassing 😳 watching each other sample the food. We ended the night not content and feeling hungry. When I attempted to address our concerns it was brushed off - I politely asked for the bill and unlike previous experience there was Care factor zero! I decided to pay for the entire night as I was too embarrassed to ask our guests to contribute to the bill course to $200. I’m confused as to why my concerns were disregarded. The venue was also not as busy as usual so it’s left me contemplating as a regular and local - whether I will make a decision to return.
This is our local place. I have bringing my parents here and friends. One of my favourite places in ascot vale.
One of our favourite local places to eat - support local where you can.
This place is awesome!!!
Food are service was great did get a bit noisy from time to time
2 days before booking I looked at menu online - it looked great. Octpus etc. NONE of the dishes on the online menu were on the menu!
Not value for $$.
Always a great meal, nice choice of wines and yum food.
Always a lovely spot to having a lovely meal and always great service with exceptional staff.
The Vale in Ascot Vale was halfway for me & my friend to meet. A cosy bar to catch up and have a couple of glasses of wine. Lovely staff.
Such a nice place for date night! Really helpful staff, great food and wine! Really liked the share plates that they had. Can’t wait to go back there.
Service was next to none! Food and wine was equally as wonderful. Beautiful night out!
Great place- good food and good vibe. Will return ASAP
I love this local spot, everything is fabulous. Food, drinks, service, ambience. Everything!
Love this little local place! Fantastic service, food was delicious and plenty of drink options. Will be back
Food was delicious and the waitress was really accommodating, moving us to be close to the fire when the table opened. Highly recommend.
Great service, food, wine and ambience. Will be back.
Great place for some tapas, proper meal or just a couple of wines. The atmosphere is very relaxed and staff members are very helpful and attentive, would highly recommend this place.
Great food, atmosphere and cocktails!! Perfect spot to catch up with the girls!
Love this place as always. Great wine bar and friendly staff. They were just busy with coming out of lockdown.
The new menu with the pizzas are a great addition
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.
