This was our second visit to Oakridge for lunch. We were very impressed first time, so for a special occasion we decided to go again. Half the room was being used for a private function on this occasion, so the restaurant was somewhat smaller than previous. All the same the view out to the vines is terrific. We tried a few wines in the tasting room before being seated so that we could choose a wine for lunch.
We started with entrees of onion tarte tartin and smoked trout,caviar, and caraway pastry with garden herbs. Beautifully presented and very tasty.
Mains were duck breast, kangaroo rump and shoulder and slow cooked beef. Again quality was excellent and quantity easily sufficient. We complemented the meals with sides of hand cut chips and a garden salad.
Finished lunch with coffees. Service was excellent and the room had a good ambience. Wines are also very good. An extremely pleasant lunch.

We met with friends for a weekday wine tasting and lunch at Oakridge. The wine tasting provided access to a reasonable range of Oakridge wines. The staff member was very knowledgeable about Oakridge wines in particular and wine generally. Although not indicated as available for tasting, we were able to taste several of the 864 Single Block wines and subsequently bought several bottles of these at the cellar door.

We then moved to the restaurant for lunch. The restaurant is similar to the tasting room in having wonderful views across the vines to the Yarra Ranges. Service was friendly and prompt. The menu is not extensive but provides some interesting choices. The smoked trout, smoked eel and 864 pumpkin entrees were all very good. I particularly enjoyed my choice of eel. For mains, we also enjoyed the dry aged duck and the slow cooked beef - the latter was very tender and rich in flavour. For dessert we shared some Gin, orange, mandarin, lemon myrtle, macadamia - a bit too tart for my liking but other members of our party enjoyed it more. The coffee was good. We also enjoyed an excellent Oakridge Cab Sav 2008.

What a wonderful way to start the day! We came for a wine tasting and our host was lovely. This is not a tasting room where you have to pay but in the end you are drawn to buy a bottle because of the beauty of the wine. Our host explained to us not only the history and talent of Oakridge but also the beautiful symbiotic relationship of the entire Yarra Valley. The vineyards appear to support each other in their endeavour for fruitful businesses through their friendships and mutual respect.
Thank you to Oakridge for our beautiful introduction to The Yarra.

We were 80 of us to celebrate my 50th b'day! We had a great experience in beautiful setting. Melbourne weather was kind to us, had an hour of drinks in the sunny private area . Simone and all the staff was fabulous, food was excellent. We had trout, kangaroo and duck for the mains. All the dishes were excellent. Only draw back was vegetarian dishes, we were expecting a choice of 2 veg dishes but only one was served. Desserts were awesome. An excellent overall experience!

Went to Oakridge for a tasting and possibly a coffee and snack with friends.
The wine was very nice, not cheap, did buy a few bottles and some really nice wine glasses.
Venue is large but was to busy to get a coffee so do need to book.
