The magnificent Stamford Park Homestead was built in 1882 by the entrepreneurial Row family as a Gentleman’s Residence. After many years of neglect, the homestead and six acres of grounds have been aesthetically restored, allowing it to once again become the ‘Jewel in Knox City’.

Stamford Parks current custodians, have waved their ‘whimsical’ magic of both design and true hospitality over the beautiful estate and it is now a stunning property serving the public for what it was originally intended – a place to gather, meet, entertain and unwind.

    My party of 8 had a fantastic time. Excellent food and drinks, great service and a quick visit to the Jazz Night really made for a terrific night. Everyone was so very impressed. One couple returned the next day after a lunch a month ago, and another couple are coming back today after last night, they had such a good time. Stamford Park Homestead are doing everything right.

    The venu is beautiful and well set out. We had three courses. I felt that the waiting staff were a little busy as it took quite some time to get our menu's and the bill but other than that the food was really quite nice but not over the top expensive

    Beautiful place to eat. Love the environment and the many rooms you can dine in. Food was beautiful. The photos on the wall don’t match the homestead and would be good if they had some of the history of the homestead on the wall instead.

    Disappointed that the Oysters when unavailable due to quality. Rest of our meal was nice and could have been better if the entree was served on a warm plate. Service was good and waiting times was reasonable. Prices were top end but okay. Will come back for special occasions.

    We dined inside for lunch, all of our meals were very tasty and moorish, we had Chicken Panini, Steak Sandwich, Quinoa Salad with Chicken and Duck Ragout. All were good servings but if we didn’t order Chicken with the salad it would have been a very small serving. But we were all very happy with our choices and will be back, maybe for dinner.

    I booked a table a month ago for mothers day. When we arrived on Sunday our table wasn't ready, we had to wait 10 minutes for a table and then we were put outside, I would have loved to have sat inside for the ambience that is why I booked so early. In hind site I probably should have requested inside. The service was pretty average, we had to ask for sharp knives for the lamb and meat. Also, the food was pretty average, I had bbq ribs and the chilli was very spicy. For a BBQ sauce it should not be so spicy. The vegetables were also undercooked and hard still. The kids portion of pasta was a bit small, my daughter who is 7 finished her food and was still hungry. Also the agnalotti was a bit small. More would have been appreciated. Overall it was an OK experience. I expected more.

    Well I have been to a lot of restaurants in my years but I would rate my experience a 0/10 . The worst service and had to send my meal back as I have near had a steak that awful . It was not edible . Service had no idea . Waited 1.5 hours for our main meal . Went there for a Mother’s Day dinner and it was disgusting.

    Food was great! Service could have been a bit better as after being seated we were not attended too for quite awhile for our drinks order and had to go look for someone. We were also not given the food menu when seated. For the price of the meals and ambience- if the service was a bit better we would have given 5 stars. Hope to visit again when they have high tea.

    I really wanted to love this place. As a local I was excited to see it open again and it is a beautiful homestead to dine in and a Rowville treasure.. the setting gets a tick, the food and service.. definite room for improvement. We went on a Wednesday night at 5.30 with 2 school aged kids.. not exactly busy at that time of the night.. the service was luke warm much like the temperature of the dining room. A mere hello and here is your table. Menus were not given straight away and when they were, no explaination of the menu or specials given. Not until 10-15 mins after we sat were we told of the specials and what wasn’t available on the menu.. probably pay to do that when you give out the menu! The kids food was sorted and came out smartly. The kids aged 6&8 loved the pasta but it’s the first time they both finished it and said they were still hungry! The portions for the children were tiny! My risotto was tasty, the husbands octopus entee was tasty but tough. His Steak was cooked to perfection but that didn’t take away from the fact the quality of meat let it down and the flavour was dull… for a $50+ steak he expected more! What really let the place down was the service on the night.. or lack of. As the kids waited and waited for desert I actually had to get up from the table and move to the corridor to attract the slightest bit of attention. I was trying to get another drink and the waitress bringing the food walked mid order and never came back! The manger was informed and we didn’t pay for the deserts which helped. For a place of this quality (and price!) there needs to be much More attentive service. Consider turning the heating up a notch or close the front door in winter for those in the first dining room and I would be tempted back.

    The most amazing experience from start to finish. We went on a Saturday afternoon for a birthday dinner and drinks. We started drinks outside where we enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere of the gardens and watched the sunset. We had table service and wonderful service from the staff. Heading in for dinner was breathtaking. The dining room was stunning, with massive chandeliers and beautiful mood lighting. Very pleasant playlist on setting a nice tone for our dining experience. The food - amAYzing! The service - incredible! Every element on the plate was so delicious, the carrots were even mentioned as being the most amazing we have ever eaten. The restaurant has an onsite veggie garden which adds another layer to how good it is! It would be the best place to have any event or function, or just a nice meal out. Prices very reasonable!

    I have not been back to the Stamford Park Homestead sinec pre COVID. Unfortunately, I believe the new owners have sacrificed the ambience of the old establishment for additional $. They have grossly simplified the menu, to at places, little more than pub fare, which I found quite disappointing. Additional tables have also been applied to the dining areas which also , makes the venue appear more cramped. Service was very good however and to be honest due to my disappointment, I'm unsure whether I will return , based on the change in ambience and menu .
