Loved it, thank you! The only thing was that one pasta was piping hot and the other was almost cold. Otherwise, amazing!

My group on wed night was very impressed with our young waitress. She was delightful. She engaged in conversation and gave the impression she had time to do so.

The feed menu was excellent quality . First impressions weren’t great as was grated by a man who looked like he hated the joint and didn’t really offer any great service . Luckily the female who served us saved him as she was great . Overall a good experience

Beautiful elegant bar and restaurant setting with smooth and responsive service.
The food was excellent and varied.
$75 for the meal was great value.
Couldn't wish for more.
We all would have liked to stay on for a relaxed evening drink sipping on Nonesuch Tasmanian whisky (that I understand is unique to Stem) but we had to leave!!
We will be back for that soon!

Waitress was non English. Was very hard to understand. When it came to the bill, we had told the waitress we would come up and pay so that it wouldn’t be awkward for our group. She came to the table multiple times with the eftpos as if she was scared we would run off. A group of 10 people running off ?? It became very awkward for everyone. This was not a nice way to end a lovely night.

The food was spectacular.
There was only one choice of Shiraz on the menu which was surprising and I have never paid $16 for one glass of wine anywhere in the world.

We will be back mainly for the food.

The tasting menu is a must- but if you can’t stretch to it, just order the gnocchi with heaps of bread to mop up the delicious sauce!

We chose the feed me option- didn’t have to think. Well only to choose the next wonderful cocktail. Couldn’t fault the food. Meat grilled to perfection and who would have thought deep fried broccoli could be so good. Service was relaxed and confident with a sense of fun. The building has a great feel to it and you could imagine being in a top dining spot anywhere in the world. For us they have the formula right so we had a great experience
