    Tokar is a beautiful setting for a meal with great staff. I felt we should perhaps have had a side with our main course but while I had sufficient perhaps the men needed slightly more. The only downside was we asked for hot coffee and I would say it was cold, though the others said lukewarm.

    I could not find a single fault with this venue - the view from deck blew us away & the service was perfect (Charlotte) was amazing, she gave us just the right amount of attention & chat, the food was faultless. Will be back to sit on that sunny deck to sip that incredible Shiraz

    Called in prior to our booking to ask for additional vegetarian options, as the restaurant had previously recommended, given that we had multiple vegetarians in the group. We liked the estate during our prior visit so went in anyway. During our lunch, we were told off by the waiter twice for requesting alternatives as ‘‘you don’t call a Japanese restaurant requesting Italian food so why call a non veg restaurant requesting veg food’’. Not only was this a terrible analogy but he also said it somewhat angrily at the table in front of my guests who had come from overseas. Appreciate that the restaurant was overwhelmed with a new menu but was thoroughly disappointed with this treatment especially since our prior visit was great. Last time, we had an amazing waitress and even had a great chat with Rita, the owner, who told us the history of the estate and we immediately planned to revisit. This time, not only was the waiter rude, but the food took a very long time to come out, as did our drinks, for our party of 6. I was looking forward to a memorable family reunion with my sisters and it ended up being memorable in the worst way.

    Tokar EstateResponded on October 5, 2022As advised when you called on a few occasions and spoke to many different members of our team, including Rita, we were unable to offer more options on the day and offered to cancel your booking in advance as we were not suited to your requests. Indeed we do not specialise in vegetarian food. We offer a small yet carefully curated seasonal menu, consisting of seafood and meat options along with a vegetarian dish for each course. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your first visit nonetheless.

    Scenic & stunning venue and equally fabulous food. It is our special event venue. Service impeccable, food is true 5 star restaurant quality - innovative and creative. The presentation of each course matched the taste - outstanding! As always, a pleasure to visit Tokar Estate. It never disappoints. Bravo!! Plus great wines to enjoy whilst dining as well as a cellar door for wine tasting.

    Tokar EstateResponded on October 5, 2022We are truly humbled to receive such wonderful feedback, and are so pleased to hear you had a fantastic time dining with us. Thank you BeaB for your kind words, and taking the time to leave us your review.

    Fourth time I visited Tokars this year - something must be working!! Beautiful food and wine (purchased 6 again , as Joanne is an excellent host and the wine tasting was fantastic (again)). Service was faultless again, and 4 of us really enjoyed our lunch. All other times we have been outside on the deck, which in nice weather, is unbeatable, but a little cool this time for us, so inside was the go. Highly recommended Tokars.

    Tokar EstateResponded on October 5, 2022Thank you for your ongoing support PeterB, as a family owned and operated business we really do value your continued visitation and are grateful for you taking time to leave us a glowing review. We are so pleased to hear you had an enjoyable lunch with us and will ensure to pass on your feedback to our Cellar Door manager Joanne, and the rest of the team. See you again soon in Summer for that table on the deck!

    The food serve in the kitchen is too slow.

    Tokar EstateResponded on October 5, 2022Thank you, we really do value all feedback and are grateful for the chance to identify opportunities for further training and improvement. We do apologise that service to your table was too slow, this is not the standard of service we strive to uphold, and are renowned for. Unfortunately the weekend you dined with us we were understaffed due to last minute sick days, an issue we must navigate as we move past the pandemic. We do hope you will give us another chance and visit again in future.

    We found that the service really let Tokar down. It took 1.5 hours to get our mains and the wait staff barely checked in to let us know.

    Tokar EstateResponded on October 5, 2022Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We do apologise that service to your table was too slow, we pride ourselves on our prompt, warm, and professional hospitality and it appears we may have missed the mark in this instance. Last minute changes due to illness left us understaffed the weekend you dined with us. We do hope you will give us another chance and visit again in future as we would love the opportunity to leave a lasting positive impression.

    Loved our visit to Tokar Estate. The food and wines were delicious, and the views were equally amazing. Loved also that it is a little more formal than many wineries around the Yarra Valley without being too formal. A great place for a relaxing lunch or when there's a special occasion to celebrate! Would not hesitate to go again.
