I have been many times and enjoy it. This time however I didn't get a change to enjoy the menu as we didn't get a glance from any staff member for over 15min once seated. I could have tolerated this as l know how things can get busy so I went to the counter to ask for service only to have the lady at the pass not even look at me and then turned her back...... Walked out after letting the chap know that seated us that we didn't get served. I will be back though...One day.

We went to Wild Dog for lunch on a Sunday that was extremely busy for them with multiple large group functions. We hadn't booked, and were blown away by the service from every single staff member. Not only did they go out of their way to find us a seat and encourage us to order before the large groups did, but every staff member checked in on us making sure we were comfortable, served and catered for. Wine was great, food delicious and all around a great experience. Would definitely come back. Well done guys!

Our party attended the winery for lunch- had asked for a window table in our booking, however were not given one and nothing was mentioned by staff, even though the restaurant was not full. Very nice setting even on a wet and windy day, however it was hard to hear each other when there are people dining as the acoustics make the din seem much louder.

Meals- honestly.... they were exceptionally small with no veges / salad included- you had to pay for any sides at $8 each or so. Two of our party had the duck confit rillette and it was awful. A thick layer of cold greasy fat on top of pureed meat. Even those who had had it before elsewhere were very disappointed and couldn't eat it.

It was noticeable that the waitressing staff had to carry tables in from outside and were moving them around quite a bit inside - they were carrying a table each and you wonder about their backs as they didn't move them in pairs.

Unfortunately we wouldn't go back, have dined at other wineries in the region and this was the most disappointing- can see the level they are aiming for, but the meals are way too small and costs too high- they need to add veges or salad and it would much improve the end result on the customers table.

Hosted a 60th birthday here and the staff bent over backwards and went above and beyond to accommodate our every wish- from installing a DVD player so we could show a tribute movie to individually parcelling birthday cake to taking group photos.

The food was delicious and the wine excellent. This is definitely the 1# choice in West Gippsland for a luxe party. I can't say enough good things about Kristee and her staff... I wish all restaurants were run with this level of innovation and passion.
