Ezard at Levantine Hill is a gastronomic partnership between hatted chef Teage Ezard and Levantine Hill Estate.
In amongst the stunning bucolic vineyard views, visitors can enjoy Levantine Hill wines matched to dishes inspired by the classic food styles of Europe, which Teage Ezard has enhanced with new flavors and combinations.
The space has been personally designed by renowned architect Karl Fender of Fender Katsalidis Architects. The 100 meter sweep of the curved roof of the venue and the private barrel-like tasting booths reference the sleek curves of a wine barrel.
Our All Day Dining space offers sharing plates to be enjoyed with great wine and company. Feast on our charcuterie or cheese selections, treat yourself from our selection of delicacies or relax and indulge in our generous, shared style grazing menu.

We love dinning at Levatine. The food is amazing, fabulous value for money. Wait staff that can not only give advise on the food and wine, but you would feel quite comfortable leaving selections to them.
Highly recommend.

Very very very poor service. A strong lesson in how quickly terrible service can make good food a bad experience.

I think the kitchen or server forgot 1/2 of our order. My meal (lamb pita and then the lamb shoulder) came out slowly but not a problem except that my wife’s entire meal came out well after I had received mine. After we asked for it. She ordered a salad, sliders and chips.

We asked if a salad always took a half hour - the server told me they were quite busy. I would say the restaurant was about 75% empty the entire time we where seated. And other guests who arrived and ordered after us where served sliders and chips while my wife waited.

At one point I asked the server for more sparkling water, he told me absolutely right away. Five minutes later I still had an empty glass and asked another server who then reached right behind us ( seated at the tables closest to the bar) picked up the bottle and filled my glass. Pretty sure he didn’t need to take as much as two steps.

Arguably some of the worst service I have experienced at a venue that serves otherwise good food. Would never go back or recommend.

The food is overpriced and very, very underwhelming. We are happy to pay top dollar, if the food is extraordinary and Ezard's certainly is not. Expect to pay $6 each oyster with a simple dressing, close to $40 for risotto of zucchini and squid and well over $50 for anything more exciting. Normally the desserts can wow, but these were fairly basic. Whilst we like attentive waiters, ours was well too eager and couldn't read the vibe of the table coming back numerous times within a short period of time to see if we were ready to order - the team weren't very experienced with sequence of service - mains arriving while empty entree plates still at table.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with lunch at Levantine Hill and really enjoyed the dishes we tried, particularly the lamb shoulder and barramundi. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant had a real buzz about it with all the tables occupied, but the noise levels were very reasonable and that view is gorgeous.

Generally not much of a selection in relation to the menu. What was served was very small for the price. Irrespective of the price, the portions were just too small. Service was slow even when the venue was not overly busy. To make things worse, after a lengthy wait for our mains, my wife found hair in her food. This then changed after bringing the matter to the managers attention and they did not charge for one of the mains.

First time at Levantine. Whilst the location, architecture and ambience of the place is first class, the food and value is a little bit of a letdown. Sliders were great but the mains were a bit of a letdown. Overall I'd rate it just above middle of the road. One of the places I always wanted to visit, but probably won't go back.

Heavy lunch and overpriced for what it was.
7 people for an afternoon birthday lunch and we ‘had’ to do the all day dining option.
I felt it was a bit heavy - the taste was ok but not great. For $95 a head and the venue I had high expectations. - maybe this was the problem.
It’s possible if we had a chance to pick our dishes - even given SOME options would of been better.
Dessert was probably the pick and I’m not a dessert person.
Might go back.

This was our second visit to Levantine Hill after an excellent first visit. There is a lively but relaxed atmosphere, the dishes arrive in good time and when ordering multiple tasting plates, there is a nice gap between serving times. The crew are very engaging without being intrusive and appear to really enjoy working there. The other thing I noticed is just how proud they seem of the meals they serve and the wines they pour. I can not recommend it highly enough.

The food was excellent, good sharing plates and well prepared.
The ambience was good and busy. Our table wasn't well placed as staff kept bumping as they went to a pay/ service station.
Service was pretty good
The issue was the wine prices . Nearly $100 a bottle for estate wines...ridiculous. The wines were OK but definitely not worth that amount.
This was our second visit and we love the food. The wine prices are prohibitive and while I would recommend the place I would warn people of the pricing
