We compliment this offering with a comprehensive wine and beer list. A bespoke cellar; filled with local, domestic and international wines, completes the dining room.

Lush greenery, American oak, intimate booths, bar seating and a generous communal table fill the room.
A Private Dining Room seating up to 16 guests with an attached garden courtyard, creates opportunities for celebrations, business meetings and special events.

The Cellar can also be considered for tailored wine tastings of up to 12 to compliment any event.

Tom was a gentleman, very informative about the food & wine. We did not receive ticket in our pest & rocket salad. He immediately ordered another & it was all delicious 😋 ❤️

So great to be back at Stem with its excellent menu and terrific service. Also very interesting wine list and great ambience. We particularly like being taken care of by Alex who is both knowledgeable and charming. We’ll go back for sure.

Great wine cellar that I feel is under appricated by patrons.

Great experience to have a cellar to select wine for dinner.

Would be great to have a small selection of wines to taste in the cellar the that can be paired to the meals to help/encourage people to select a wine for dinner

Walked in and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful fit out inside, this was followed by friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff. Match all this with a delicious food and wine menu and Stem has provided it all. Great venue which I hope does well and we will definitely be back.

The food was really disappointing considering the price point and high-class look they are trying to go for. Food came out raw, food came out cold, etc. The waitress, as lovely as she was, interrupted us every 5 minutes or so to suggest how we should eat our food, place our cutlery, etc. Was hoping for it to be a lot better than it was

We visited Stem for a family dinner on the weekend (it was my Mum's birthday that week and my younger sister's birthday the week before). It was fairly busy on the Saturday night but the booths and acoustics still allowed for casual conversation and music without the place seeming too loud.

The staff were excellent, very friendly and accommodating. We were allowed to taste a couple of wines before selecting a bottle and our orders were attended to quickly.

The food was brought out in stages not long after - we tried a couple of pizzas and a number of different share plates because everything sounded so good! The charred broccoli with chilli jam and the Osso Bucco gnocchi were definitely favourites.

Overall the dinner was fantastic - my Mum said it was the best restaurant she had ever been to. I had been to Stem once before for a special occasion and our experience last weekend solidified the fact that I will most definitely be visiting again.

While service and food was the usual very good it Is strange and inconsistent with that quality that you think that it can all be enjoyed on an outside table given the noise emanating from is it the jam factory? A few days after all I can still remember is the unbearable noise, not the good food. Will not go again. You need to find out when those extreme noise levels are expected from the jam factory and not take outside bookings at that time.

Delicious tasting food from a varied menu, perfect portion sizes, great value for money and a wicked decor. Bit of luxury, but not pretentious. Amazing drinks and wine list too. A must visit if in central Adelaide for the evening!

My wife and I wanted to celebrate a milestone in our relationship. We’ve been to all of the top restaurants in Adelaide before, but none of them were what we wanted. A friend on mine suggested Stem and it was perfect. The service was immaculate, the wine selection was subtle and enjoyable, the atmosphere was vibrant and most importantly the food was succulent, delicious and the best part of the evening. I believe Stem is the it restaurant of Adelaide. Try it for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

The fit out and atmosphere is great, and the menu options looked amazing but unfortunately the food just lacked a bit of flavour. It promises to be a high end food experience from the outside but we were just left a little disappointed. Hopefully they up the food game a little bit because it's a great looking place

Had a really good time. Arrived a little early and the only place to have a drink while waiting was the (cellar temperature!) cellar room. Interesting, but not comfortable! Great decor and really nice food indeed. Modern, chic and excellent service and good value. Very good wine list - you can buy any wine from their cellar to go with the meal.

Would heartily recommend. Don't be put off by the sleazy street it is located in!

Visit #4. Great food every time and staff have just the right level of service.
Menu varies without losing heart favourites like the pumpkin.
Portion sizes just right. And Daosa on wine list. Yes!

I had heard good things so my expectations were high. We went in the early seating and there were only 3 tables for the most part. we sat down and ordered cocktails as well as wine. There were at least five staff and so after 15 mins I asked about our cocktails. The wine arrived for the boys I asked again where our cocktails were? After 30 mins and 3 different staff chasing our cocktails our entrees arrived and still no drinks. The place was nearly empty - no excuse for no drinks. This was not a good start!!! When cocktails arrived I immediately ordered another. Then after another 30 mins waiting I cancelled!! It ws not busy at all just hopeless bar staff. On a good note the sommelier was fabulous as was the wine room. Good place just not for cocktails
