From the moment we were seated in our preferred table by the river (it was our anniversary) we had lovely, thoughtful and attentive service. The menu looked greta and the advice given helped us choose spectacular meals and matching wine that we enjoyed immensely. Dessert was a special experience also and the whole experience was memorable and just right. Thoroughly recommend.

Overall good experience, 3 course lunch menu extended the sitting over 2hrs which was a bit excessive. Great location, Good food and staff were very friendly. Would visit again for dinner.

Our service was fine (as expected in a 5 star restaurant).

I took three attempts to select a wine asanybwines appeared to be sold out but were still Listed on the wine list despite being unavailable.

My meals were just average - not warm enough and overrated.

The food quality did not reflect the high prices.

We booked Stokehouse Q for a romantic dinner on our first trip to Brisbane. It was an amazing experience.

The service was pitched at the perfect level of friendly yet sophisticated. The food was delicious - the special fish hot pot was a highlight.

We recommend asking for a table on the deck so you can get the beautiful view of Brisbane River.

Absolutely first rate experience, the food was anazing and cooked to perfection, lovely presentation, all staff were very skilled and had great knowledge of the menu. Had an unique moment with being on a first date which was misinterpreted as an anniversary, beautiful views, peacefulness. Thank you for making it a day to remember.

My wife and I had our anniversary lunch here recently and it was truly excellent. Fantastic service, food was amazing and they even suggested additional side plates so we could split the mains and entrees as we couldn’t decide who would have which meal. We’ve been here many times and it’s always been great but it’s like they’ve gone up another notch somehow. Can’t wait to go back.

We arrived just on dusk the view across the river was breathtaking and we got a table right over the water! Our waiter so relaxed, friendly and informative about the menu - excellent follow up service all night! Food was delicious...we were sorry to leave to go to a show and would have been happy to linger and enjoy the ambience of the restaurant and the sweeping view of the night lights over the river!

Stokehouse was an absolutely wonderful place to have my wife and I’s 2nd year anniversary dinner. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was impeccable. The selection of food is perfect for any appetite and the selection of beverages accompanies any available meal fantastically. Combining these aspects with a beautiful view across to Brisbane city made Stokehouse honestly the most enjoyable dining experience we have ever had and we will not hesitate in recommending it to out friends and family. Thank you stokehouse

Thank you Lara and my lovely neighbours for organising an amazing birthday dinner on the 12/04/2018.
The food was delicious and mostly the Happy Birthday Writing on the Bomb was WOW.
Will be back soon for another dinner.

Although I would recommend Stokehouse Q it would possibly be only for the great view!
We took interstate visitors there and to be honest I was disappointed with it. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful but the wine waiter was surly and slow. Food was not up to the standard of the last time I ate there. The desserts looked nice but the cheese was small and not that great and the crackers were hard, virtually inedible and unappetising. For the cost of all the courses I expected better.

We were there for just under two hours before our main courses were served. They were outstanding as were the starters but the long wait was not acceptable particularly given the high cost of the meal. This makes Stokehouse hard to recommend despite the excellent food and beautiful location. No serious apologies were given for this delay in service on a Monday night.

This restaurant was in a wonderful setting it is right on the river edge with views along the river, the bar for cocktails was a treat before dinner, the food was excellent and the service was great, nothing was too much of a bother for us, very attentive sommelier never a dry glass
Starters and mains a great choice
This is our second time visiting as we live in the UK and look forward to visiting many more times when in Brisbane

We went to Stokehouse Q to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were married there and had our reception in the restaurant 4 years previous but hadn’t been for awhile. We were pleasantly surprised by the new menu offerings, whilst also enjoying the things that made us love it in the first place (e.g. the bomb for dessert). The staff made it a wonderful evening!
