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.

lovely food for the most part, some perhaps needed slight improvement in the execution. Great surrounds/interiors though the lighting I found really smacked me in my face.

I’d try it again!

Everything was great, lovely food and wine and decor is modern and inviting. Only the lady host didn't greet us as we entered the restaurant, she looked at us and then went back to the computer screen, a hello and smile goes a long way. And the sides didn't arrive with our mains and were forgotten, but once they did all come out the food was Delicious, and couldn't fault.

Great meal and service, lucky enough to be able to graduate from outside to shared tables inside which was not an issue, highly recommended for all reasons, and especially the food.

I loved the atmosphere and decor... the view of the busy kitchen, the plants, the layout of the tables with comfy nooks as well as multiple open bar seating...
My friends ordered a cocktail that wasn't on the menu and the friendly bartender promptly delivered. I can recommend Barossa merlot.
Service was really outstanding - always there when you need them and not intrusive.
We all ordered barramundi and ate it in silence so we could focus on the deliciousness.

Enjoyed our evening, entrees and mains were deliscious, decor is warm and inviting and staff were excellent. The only dissapointment was dessert - only x 2 options and nothing that really stood out. Would love to see more choice here. Will return if dessert menu expands :)

This was my second time at Stem, the first a board dinner with interstate guests that was spectacularly delicious, seated in a special room to enable privacy.
Last night's meal was for two celebrating a colleague's birthday, seated on small table, diners spaced from others, great ambience with chilled music, excellent service and Tom requires a special mention - great communicator, sense of timing and appropriately attentive and responsive. Food again delicious, inventive with original tastes such as salt and vinegar kale, sirloin cooked perfectly, I'll be back, thank you!

We love stem, everything from their wine selection, incredibly talented chefs and their ideas for food, the extremely attentive staff and the interior design. We have dined at Stem several times and cant rate it high enough for a special night out or just to drop in for a mid week treat.

Great food, ambience and service. Being terrible at decision making we opted for the shared menu which represented excellent value. A generous amount and a delicious variety of food was served over the course of 2+ hours. Service was attentive and helpful. Will be back to try out more of the menu!

Stem was amazing. Food was incredible and the service was fab. We got the chefs selection, I was the only vegan at the table and they catered for me even though the rest of the table ate meat and dairy. Really appreciated it!

Some hits and misses. Waited around 8 minutes to even been acknowledged at front desk but our waitress (UK lady) was fantastic so this made up for it.

Some dishes were outstanding like the broccoli, steak & panacotta whereas the mushroom pizza was overpowered by the halapenos and the pizza base was tasteless.

Great ambience - had a real buzz

One of the most immersive amazing experiences we’ve had dining out in Adelaide,
We celebrated our friends 30th birthday and it was honestly incredible, the food presentation to the wine knowledge was incredible as well as the level of high quality service.
Special shout-out and thanks to Jo and Kirsty for really shining for us. Amazing reflection of what true front of house service is all about,
Highly recommend to anyone wanting to dine in a beautiful cozy space in Adelaide city,
Thanks again legends x
