Wonderful food and a great location tucked away in surry hills. Great for sharing food with friends or for date night.

Great place - lovely outdoor dining in the courtyard with the girlfriend... a great way to start the holiday! We had the sharing platter & steak.. both very happy. A great spot for food or just a drink/bottle!

The food was ordinary, but my real beef was with the service. It started out satisfactorily, and then petered out. It was impossible to get the waiter's attention. We had to ask for our drinks orders several times, and on occasion waited for more than half an hour for drinks. The location is the only thing hat saves the place.

Good place to catch up with friends. The service was good but the prices were a little more than I think they should have been

Prompt food arrival. Great service and had a fabulous waitress who catered to all our requests even bringing a sparkler out for the bday girl. All steaks was cooked well. Great food overall. Only down side would be the lack of outdoor heating for those sitting in the cold wind.

Received nicely and served constantly throughout the night. Service was predominantly fantastic throughout our time there. Ambience is excellent albeit slightly loud from time to time, but nice to know it's a busy location nonetheless. Definitely a spot to relax and enjoy some great company.

This was my second visit to The Winery but this time I was disappointed with the food. Our table was disturbed on a few occasions with heaters going back and forth. We ordered the less expensive wine but didn't realise they had brought out the wine that was double the price. Because we both wear glasses for reading and the lighting was very dim, we didn't realise until we paid the bill. I probably won't return again.

Fantastic evening overall! We went to try the new vegan options which were great. The wine and general atmosphere of the Winery made our night very special. 100% would recommend!

We asked the waitress about the wine we were ordering, she clearly did not know about the wine, and just repeated the words on the wine list. Consequently after much reassurance by her that it wasn't a Chardonnay it turned out it was. Then to add insult to injury my main meal was blue, and by blue I mean roar. Waitress apologised and offered new main but by this stage it was too late. Left hungry and with bad Chardonnay taste in mouth.

The sausage rolls are a must have. Good wine selection ... Red snapper special was in fact special. Just sort out that weird air con blowing spasmodically masses of cold air?!
