Excellent service and delicious food. Definitely worth a visit.
Beautiful location, amazing food and service
Thank you to the team for a beautiful lunch this Thursday past. A place that feels special and comfortable all at the once- beautiful food and wines, I'm not local to the area but will definitely be making a return. Thanks again.
Very enjoyable outing for an anniversary lunch, classy food and great atmosphere
Thoroughly enjoy every visit. The food is exceptional and never disappoints. Thank you Trev and team!
We are raving about our dinner on Saturday night. There were only a few things that I would suggest to review.
1. as much as the setting was beautiful and ambient we thought there was a smell in the area. To me it seemed like stale smoke. (not cigarettes, but wood fire?)
2. New wait staff should probably become much more familiar with the menu and drinks before attending orders.
The food and service was exceptional
Trevor and the whole team at Hogget are a great example of regional Victorian hospitality.
Amazing locally source menu, fresh and bold flavours making allowing the ingredients to shine.
Wine list mainly focus on Gippsland which celebrates why this region is growing as a wine hub.
Service is friendly and warm.
Hoggets it’s all you expect from a great unpretentious regional restaurant.
A hatted restaurant where you can bring the whole family to.
Well done guys.
Our lunch was beautiful! Food was fantastic even though a little on the pricy end. Fantastic view and very accommodating and attentive staff.
We had a lovely evening. Everything was perfect. Food was delicious, staff very attentive and friendly. Thank you.
Highly recommend going here. Lovely venue, excellent service and delicious food.
Unfortunately, the crew were off their game the day we had lunch at Hogget's Kitchen. Some of the food was amazing but some was poor (almost inedible) and it disappoints me to have to say that! I love this place and have always had AMAZING food in the past. I don't think the head chef was in the kitchen on the day...pasta was well under-cooked, food lacked seasoning (salt), and the dishes didn't have the same finesse. So Disappointed!
On a busy day the service and food were fabulous once again!
Very enjoyable. Good food. Good service. Good setting.
Despite terrible weather the views are spectacular and great to know the food is locally sourced and made on site. Loved the fact that a native bush food garden is underway.
Had a wonderful lunch to spend time with my husband as we had been very busy
The dining experience was every bit as good as rumoured! A funky building in the midst of the vineyard and views across the valley from a table by the window. Food and wine of course were the main event, served by skilled an friendly staff. We even got to meet the guy who wears that chef's hat. Well done Trevor, Anne and all!
We had a wonderful afternoon, and have already recommended you to family and friends. We'll be back for more.
I feel so fortunate to have this amazing restaurant so close to home. I’ve been here for weddings, family celebrations, business meetings, romantic date nights & quiet meals for one, and it never disappoints. Congratulations to Trevor, Jess & the team on their recent awards. Keep up the great work.
A very calm, warm and inviting location that instantly makes you feel relaxed. Trev and his team never disappoint with the food on offer an amazing experience in itself, my friends and I are definitely becoming regulars.
Outstanding food and wine, great service by the staff, will be sure to return
Phenomenal food, very attentive staff and an amazing atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Amazing experience. Trevor has done an incredibly job with the menu and restaurant as a whole, Highly recommend the "Let Trev cook for you" option.
This was my first time at Hogget Kitchen and I was blown away.
The food was so light and fresh and full of flavour.
Very good value for money and I would highly recommend to friends and family.
We sat next to the window and the view looking out was beautiful.
The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and food being served.
First experience at Hogget kitchen and it did not disappoint! Had a wonderful Saturday lunch for my mother-in-law's birthday. We brought our 3.5yo child, who usually doesn't last very long in restaurants, however the waitresses were so lovely and offered to bring drawing paper and pens after he had finished his meal. They even went so far as to freshly squeeze some orange juice at his request! I could enjoy the beautiful food, wine and views with my husband and mother-in-law. As it was lunch, we had starters and entrees alongside freshly baked bread and the Hogget Merlot. Everything tasted amazing and it was so nice to know that the majority of the food is locally sourced. Very happy to pay that little bit more knowing that we were eating good wholesome food!
Hogget's Kitchen is a wonderful dining experience, where the creatively composed dishes, contain the highest quality, local ingredients - quality that you can taste. The wine selection is excellent (including some grapes and vintages from local wineries I didn't know, but loved trying). The setting is perfect in gorgeous South Gippsland and the service is friendly. I would love to go back and enjoy a wine and more food on their wonderful deck with the view over the rolling hills covered in vines. A really wonderful dining experience, worth going out of your way for.
Beautiful venue looking over rows of vines & surrounding countryside. Food very enjoyable with a number of light choices and six or so mains. Trout entree very light on trout heavy on the gelee. Rib Eye steak for $100 for 600 grams was a little expensive and the portion size light on especially given much of it is bone. Still very tasty. Reasonable selection of wines predominantly from the local area. Overall very pleasant experience.
The best breakfast experience in recent memory. Amazing.
Dining at Hogget Kitchen is a true dining experience. I will always choose the "Let Trev cook for you" menu option. There's no other way to dine there. Each course is exceptional and together make a memorable meal. The wine list is also exceptional with the naturally fermented sauvignon blanc is one of the best wines I have ever tasted. I am always looking for excuses to dine at Hogget Kitchen.
Food was delish. Waitress was lovely, the waiter was not. Arrogant and rude but efficient.
One of our party found a hair in the food and asked for another serving .
It was slow to return and the serving was only half the size of the original.
Walked away still hungry and not satisfied.
No complaints about the food though.
Had Trev's set meal including the Cheese. Lamb was fatty and greasy. Cheese @ $10 per person and there were 6 of us - absolute rip off cheese was boring and a very small portion. Very disappointing. Unlikely to go back.
Absolutely love dining at Hogget Kitchen. The attention to flavour is always excellent. We had Trev cook for us and enjoyed five courses of delicious, well thought out dishes. A favourite of ours being the snacks of swede empanadas, the rabbit parfait and smoked Noojee trout on blinis. Our main of roast lamb was also delightful. A bottle William Downie Pinot being the perfect accompaniment for the meal. We shall be back soon.
Wonderful service and outstanding food. Have already told friends
Yet again a fabulous meal with tremendous service on a busy day! An amazingly consistent restaurant experience.
Food, ambience...and value for money..overall just great.
We selected the 5 course menu which allowed us to taste what was on offer. So glad we did. Food presented beautifully. The food was amazing. The location and amenties were great. Recommend without question.
Awesome venue, awesome food , awesome Chef!...........
Lunch was super. Beautiful rabbit risotto. Preceded by the charcuterie plate which was equally great.
Love the nose to tail approach. Beautiful setting as well.
A delightful dining experience!
