Loved it! The food was top notch as was the service. Great wine list to complement. Really hard to fault all round... plenty of options on the menu we didn't get to try so we're already looking forward to our next dinner there.

This is in the old cafe chaos site in Hindley St, which is the only reason I can see this place not succeeding. The venue has been completely renovated and has lots of exposed wood and cool concrete. The food was excellent and there are a good range of menu options. It is not a vegan restaurant but it does have some interesting and tasty selections for those looking for vegetarian and vegan options. The service was friendly and professional. There is a cool bar if you just want a drink and a walk in cellar for picking your own wine. It is slightly pricey but with the quality of the food I don't think many will be disappointed. This is a classy place and I hope it does well. I will definitely be returning.

STEM is a fabulous Restaurant. It's great to see a café of this standard open in Adelaide. We loved the service, the food and the entire experience. We will be back.

It was our first visit to Stem last night since it’s opening and I couldn’t fault a single thing.

I’m visiting from Melbourne and Stem is totally my kind of restaurant/wine bar and is completely on-point!

I absolutely love the industrial chic fit-out, softened with the use of natural materials, lush plants, American Oak and possibly my favorite, the wine cellar!

The ambiance is warm and inviting, not stuffy or pretentious and is complimented with a tantalizing menu, full of so many delicious seasonal choices perfect for sharing (or not).

The staff are all absolutely fabulous! We received a warm, friendly welcome and excellent service throughout the evening. I found the service to be attentive but not intrusive. Our fabulous host offered us some great recommendations from the menu and the sommelier Lachlan’s wine knowledge is brilliant.

I didn’t expect to find a hidden gem like this in Adelaide and certainly not on Hindley Street, yet the venue and its location is perfect.

I’m not easily impressed, however I was very impressed with Stem. 10/10

Thank you for a great night Stem, see you again very soon.

Beautiful restaurant. Gorgeous interior!
Great Service. Food was yummy and the pizza was perfect and fluffy. The only negative feed back was when I ordered the prosciutto duck entree instead of whole slices of prosciutto, it was more like one slice of prosciutto cut into tiny pieces. Still taste great but a bit over priced for what it was. Overall highly recommend Stem.

Highly recommend the pizza. The sauce is amazing.
Broccoli and potatoes equally good.
Wine list is full, bound to something for everyone.
Atmosphere was good. Booths provide a nice, slightly more intimate space.
Service could have been more attentive.

Can’t recommend this new Restaurant more. Such a cool place with friendly attentive staff. We had such a great night - you can’t miss the Broccoli hummus, Lamb with polenta and gnocchi to die for (we had to order another serve)!
The wine list compliments the very yummy food.

Great food, amazing service (from a well known crew) - we were the last ones standing and the staff were so welcoming - really hope it takes off. Well deserved.

Such a great surprise as one never knows what to expect when trying a new restaurant. From when we walked through the door the staff were courteous and attentive and the menu had a lot to choose from. The food we ordered was delicious, the buzz around the restaurant was great and the fit out looked amazing. Would definitely go back!

Love this place! It is just what the west end of Hindley Street needed. Upmarket and funky with great staff and while the menu is not extensive each item is exceptional. And the wine room ... wow!
