This restaurant is a cracker, food, service, beautiful decor, It was just excellent. My only criticism is that it is hard to get in. I use a large wheelchair and I found that there was plenty of space, the staff just looked after me.

It was my great nieces 21st and they were just me her and her boyfriend. I can’t say enough about the variety of food, and being a real foodie you serve some magnificent plates with food that I’ve never eaten before. Variety was spectacular. Unfortunately I’m not drinking at the moment so was not able to check out your one list, maybe one day. Thank you

Excellent food. Thai Seafood curry with Jasmine rice was great as too were the Mushroom Spring rolls.
Cocktails were very good if a little pricey.
Our bottle of water which still had a glass worth of water in was grabbed and taken away without asking and no explanation as to why by the waiter, so I asked for another. That was a surprise and a shame to an otherwise excellent meal.
Will come back again as we really enjoyed the food.

We had a really good night at the Shorehouse. On arrival the four of us decided we couldn't decide on food choices so we opted for the 'Just feed me' option where they serve up a selection of their most popular and best dishes ($59pp - 2 person min). We were served scallops, spring rolls, slow cooked beef, pork, chicken curry, Asian greens and rice followed by an amazing brulee. We were told the options before we ordered and they could have been modified to suit. Everything was great, as was the service. We will definitely be back.

Amazing food, the chiefs menu was excellent, although the curry tasted amazing it did not work with the rest of the menu. The service we received was some of the best we had experienced, our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, attentive and nothing was to much; thank you.

My family and I go to storehouse for any occasion we can, this was the first time we had been on a Monday night - the website says absolutely nothing about it being a set menu. Wasn't until I read the onetable booking notification 24hrs before hand did I find the 2 sentences about the menu being set. I phone to change the number of people on the table and still was not informed this was a set menu...

We love shorehouse but this was disappointing. Was really hard to place a drink order, to the point we just went to the bar ourselves. It was my mums birthday and nothing on the menu was things she really loved to eat. We predominately order seafood dishes, that wasn't on the menu.

I would pre-warn people to not attend the Monday night as the menu is set.

Food was fantastic, great menu of share plates. Scallops were great and pork belly bao buns were the best we have had. Good wine menu, service was fast, efficient and friendly. We will definitely be back. Worst part is it can be hard to get a table which is testament to how good they are....

Our small family loved the experience of Shorehouse.
There were so many lovely moments from when we arrived until we left that added up to be a stellar experience.
The meals are wonderful - such a great range, and we enjoyed how they came out when they were ready. We tried many different options and enjoyed all of them. Hard to pick a favourite, but maybe the lamb ribs.
The staff were welcoming and informative, without being pushy or intrusive.
We look forward to returning and would encourage others to visit soon!

Incredible! Cannot fault anything. Staff went above and beyond for us. I had some requests (organised surprises) for my parnters birthday and staff pulled it all off without a hitch and were more than willing to accommodate. The food was amazing and was brought out promptly. Staff ensured we always had drinks and were friendly and helpful.
