Our son ordered a $100 steak. Was the size of your fist and he was underwhelmed by the taste. I ordered a $26 glass of bollinger, which I then tipped over. Would have been thoughtful if they replaced. Instead the waitress said’ “oh no! Would you like to purchase another one?”

I feel lunch is the best time at Storehouse Q. The amazing view across the river always impresses. Despite it being one if the hottest days this year the staff and fans kept us cool. The food was excellent, the wines chilled to perfection. An amazing afternoon was had by all of our party. Another memorable birthday celebration.

Service at the bar before dinner was not great. Took 20mins to have 4 x drinks delivered. However our server for dinner (he was from Sweden) was amazing!!!! All the food was exceptional apart from the $110 marble grade 9 steaks. They were a huge disappointment. Not at all worth the money.

Not a great place for vegetarians, limited options and I found the food very over salty. My risotto was returned to the kitchen due to extreme saltiness, the second time it was tasteless. All the sides of vegetables were also salty and no other flavours. I won’t be returning there. My friend had snapper for $48, it was tiny and not outstanding in flavour. The service was random, lacking in attention and didn’t comment on the virtually full plates returning to the kitchen. Very disappointing.

As always, a superb experience at all levels. However, I don't appreciate the practice of a call on the morning of the booking to yet again confirm the booking - I only booked it the day before.

I found the food to be average and for the price I expected a whole lot more.
Service was good. The restaurant was not at all busy at lunchtime so I don't know what service would be like at busy times.

We had a lovely night at Stokehouse Q recently. We frequently commented throughout our meal to ourselves about the outstanding service we received - and how good service really can make or break a dining experience. Everone was thoroughly lovely and knowledgeable and had the balance of professional and friendly without being over the top or annoying down pat! The food and wine was also excellent and we'd go back in a flash.

I had the Kangaroo carpaccio; Crab Tortellini and the Dry Aged Blue-Eyed Trevella (special) with the Poached Rhubarb for dessert. The kangaroo was surprising the way the betroot and blueberry dominated the gamey flavour, a nice starter but my expectations let me down. The Tortellini was the stand out, having a wonderful presentation and well balanced flavour, the puree especially was perfectly seasoned. I'd never had dry aged fish and to be able to with Trevella was a treat, praise to the chef for its preparation, the accompanying tomatoes were beautiful and the right temperature to enhance the flavour of the fish. The acidic notes in the sauce were nicely balanced to accentuate the salty fish and overall elevated the plate in all regards. The Rhubarb was nice, but was nothing of note.

I'd like to commend the sommelier on his conduct. As a first apprentice, I'm still learning the ins and outs of wine accompaniment and he was helpful recommending a wine and explaining both the reasons why but also the basic of wine pairing.

This was not our first time at Stokehouse. The service was fantastic. Staff were friendly and helpful, as usual they went out of their way to make dinner a memorable night. Thanks Patrick! The food was fantastic and we had advice on what beautiful wines to pair with each dish. The menu was great. It provided a variety of choices some we wouldn’t normally consider. However knowing Stokehouses quality we tried them and the dishes were lovely. We really enjoyed each dish and the beautiful flavours.
There were a couple of things that we felt could have improved our experience. One of the first things we noticed was the dim lighting, I had trouble reading the menu. The other area that could be considered is the quantity of the main or its price. For the amount paid we expected more protein on the plate.
We really enjoyed our night at Stokehouse, thank you.

From the moment your host escorts to your table you know you are about to experience something amazing. All the staff are attentive but discreet, the courses intervals timed perfectly.
The food, innovative, visually pleasing and wonderfully tasty.

Food was phenomenal. View was beautiful however for value, was disappointed with the service. Not very attentive and felt quite rushed. Not much eye contact and though I’m sure staff are friendly, they didn’t come across that way. Overall food was outstanding.

Food was very tasty but portion size had considerably shrunk since our last visit. If I’m paying $45 for a main I would like the whole duck breast rather than a sliver of it. Likewise for the lamb loin. Stokehouse, please don’t fall into the trap of nouveau cuisine size portions, I want to feel satisfied not licking the plate looking for more.

Always a pleasure visiting this restaurant. They adjust to my Gluten free and Nut free requirements very well. Waters edge table is the best - book ahead and ask for one. I always use their sommelier to match a wine to the food. Go with 'by the glass' (all good wines) and you get a match for each guests course.

The staff were very attentive and professional, I understand it was busy and not everyone can get the best table but our table was horrible, right in front of the kitchen door which had staff constantly walking in and out, so we heard creaking from the doors every 30 seconds. Not to mention I could see plates being scraped in bins from my seat, so the atmosphere was a total loss and hard to relax and enjoy. The food was nice, the meat portions quite small so probably not great value at around $50 each (maybe 50g to 100g) when you have to buy sides as well.
My advice if you are booking make sure it’s away from the kitchen door- check before you go as it will ruin your experience. We came here for a special night, our bill was $290 so we don’t do this often but left pretty disappointed. They should put a partition up at the least but I would get rid of any tables that close to the door. I’d happily visit the bar again.

Great location, food and service. The view was also great, except there was a tree that blocked what would've have been a perfect view of the water and city. Trim the tree.
