Hemingway's Wine Room

Drawing on Ernest Hemingway’s unique talent of indulging and recounting the lives of his bohemian characters in the words scribed in his books, so too is the story of Hemingway’s Wine Room.

The concept for Hemingway’s Wine Room was fashioned after a couple of bottles of Chablis one late wintery Melbourne afternoon. The idea - to create a beautiful neighbourhood destination to share food and wine for every occasion.

Inspired by New York and Paris in the 1920s, our neighbours can choose to dine in our moody brasserie or enjoy a moveable feast in our wine bar.

Whether you are a local or travelling from afar, we want to make your experience a memorable one every time you visit.

On the evening of Sunday 14th February, for $149 per person our guests will be welcomed to our Brasserie with a glass of Bille-Carte champagne.

The long lunch option with “Magnum” wines was wonderful. You still have the full menu to choose from (2 courses) & the wines were tasty & free-flowing. Staff are friendly & knowledgeable. We’ll be back (with friends)

A wonderful new find. Outstanding dishes included the wagyu beef (with an insanely good fried potato puff), the corn ravioli and the cos truffle anchovy salad. Environment is lovely and warm, and service is stunning all round. However, it would be good to return to some of desserts built around fresh fruits, as these are more special and seasonal than the ones based on, say, caramel and chocolate. This is our third time dining here and we'll definitely be returning.

Excellent food - simple, yet brilliantly executed. The various elements on the plate comes together very nicely, with the seasonal ingredients taking the limelight. Service was impeccable, friendly and knowledgeable. Will return!

I booked Hemingway's Wine Room for both my BBF and myself birthdays catch up dinner.

I must say, that we both had a great time. Our waitress was Julia, and I must say, she was amazing. She was so lovely and really took care of our dinning experience.

If you do go to Hemingway's, please ask for Julia. She will really lovely and professional.

The only disappointment was the attitude of the manager. He had over charged us and when that was pointed out to him the response was quite surly. Surprised us as that is not what we expect from a hospitality professional. Certainly not from someone in that position in a restaurant of that calibre.
Spoiled what was until then a lovely evening with delicious food and pleasant service.

Just incredible. The staff is knowledgeable, the food is to die for (all of it) and the cocktails are dangerously delicious. Couldn't recommend it more.

We were so lucky to get a table on opening night. We have had dinner deliveries from Hemingways which were Devine but being there was a treat. The food, service and ambiance far exceeded our expectations. Thank you
