Beautiful food, service and view! Can't ask for more!
Cookie cutter experience with average food. Service was good. Wine selection ok.
Fabulous shaped table to fit 7 of us.
Wonderful food, wine and service. We were there celebrating 2 birthdays which was well done without being a fanfare.
A great experience at an old favourite... the seafood was sensational and the staff exceptional with great service knowledge and personality to boot.
The wine list was also outstanding as well as the sommelier.
Perfect place to go before the Palais
Service was very poor compared to other visits. Maybe due to not enough staff. Drinks waiter was good.
Service was exceptional, great ambiance and perfect for a special occasion. Main menu lovely but a little limited.
Food very salty & expensive for the quality. Dessert also very disappointing with the balance completely out of proportion. In summary over prices and over rated- would definitely not go back
Great spot and service, and good menu. But the food was so salty I couldn't finish it.
It was my first time at the new Stokehouse and we thought it was so well done without being a replica of the past. Great location, venue and experience. Definitely a special occasion restaurant.
Great food and service at this iconic Melbourne venue. Stunning day!
Lovely staff from the moment we stepped through the door. Our waitress had an excellent knowledge of the menu which helped my partner choose his meal easily, as he has some specific dietary requirements. The food and wine were excellent. We had fish entree and main meals, all beautifully cooked (where appropriate) and presented. Desserts were completely at the top of the yummy scale! Its not a cheap place to eat by any means, but great for a special occasion. We were heading off to a concert at the Palais after our meal, so the 6 o'clock sitting was ideal. Would definitely go back.
Great long lunch overlooking the bay. Exceptional food. Particularly like that each entree and main dish could be split and staggered so that both people dining could try each one. Special thanks to our lovely waiter Nino and Somm Gavin for the interesting and different wine pairings for each dish.
The food was average. We did expect a lot after reading the reviews. We were very underwhelmed. Great view tho.
A guaranteed perfect day out that always seems to turn into night.
Food portions small. But lovely overall. Staff a little stiff.
We love this place so much! I would love to see more shellfish on the menu though....such as fresh crayfish, bugs and scallops.. It's already delicious and I'm just wishful thinking..
Great food but unfortunately the staff seemed dis-interested on a quiet Monday afternoon.
Given the price you pay at Stokehouse there is a reasonable expectation of good service. Unfortunately we waited ages to be seated, despite having a booking and being told the table would be ready in two minutes. We had to ask for menus, bread - pretty much everything. The food was pretty flavourless and was a massive disappointment for the price.
Only if you had never been before, once is enough. It has lost something in the re build
We went to The Stokehouse to celebrate my birthday. All staff were professional and polite and kind given I had no voice.
The food was lovely and the only reason we did not have dessert was because we were all full.
The day was sunny and beautiful, so a walk along the market afterwards to help with digestion was perfect.
Lovely meal and ambience
Service by our waiter was terrible - we waited half an hour for menu's after asking twice. Food was nice but not brilliant. Overrated
Staff attentive and ambiance lovely. Don't mind paying for great food - however, food lacked that wow factor, and thus, over-priced. If this is the 'Stokehouse' experience, been there, done that won't be back!
The food was absolutely amazing! The only downside would be the amount of time it took for the staff to give and collect the check
Fantastic food and amazing service. Would recommend the Stokehouse for a special occasion! We loved all the dishes so much that we joked about licking the plate (we would have if it was socially acceptable). The lamb was melt in your mouth, do yourself a favour! We will be back.
It was previously advised before booking of vegetarian and gluten free requirement, but the offerings were sadly lacking. For a main I had to order several accompaniment dishes, which were not special. And the dessert was inferior to a supermarket gelato.
The gluten free bread offered was clearly bought elsewhere and of supermarket standard, when other fine dining venues bake their own.
The cocktails were hit and miss, with one very good and the other overpriced and uninspiring.
The food is greatly overpriced in general. However the service was polite.
Service and food simply outstanding! Ambience was just lovely and views amazing.
Lamb was tepid at best. We were never asked how our meal was by any staff member. Mineral water was continually poured despite never having the opportunity to request a stop. Clearly a request from management. Dodgy and unethical. Maître d was initially rude and we were told to hurry up as our booking was only until 8.30pm. Pretty poor given we spent $1000 for 5 covers, two of whom were children. Sommelier was exceptional and did his best to make amends.
Food was good but not exceptional. Very expensive. Pay for view & location.
Great view and feel. Waiter relocated us from a positio with too much sun which we appreciated. Raw bar choices were delicious. As I require lactose free food I went through the menu with the waiter. He suggested the linguini vongole . I think it may have had butter in the sauce as I had a severe reaction which spoilt the night.
Good food and great service, perhaps a bit too noisy for my liking.
We had a delightful evening, at the Stockhouse. The menu offered a great selection of varied dishes, with an emphasis on seafood. We particularily enjoyed the raw seaford starters. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion, or visitors to Melbourne - excellent wine selection, fabulous food and a beautiful setting overlooking Port Phillip bay.
Brilliant for lunch and if you can go with four people so that you can share that would be even better.
Very laid back and great view overlooking the beach sipping wine with great sea food.
Service and food and setting were outstanding on Friday, a 38 degree day, over lunch - we really enjoyed our lunch visit. Thanks to Hugh and the team, it really was perfect and we can't wait to visit again.
Our Wedding Anniversary Dinner was all Divine Food, Wine, Service & Great View 🌄The Sparkling Water Kept Flowing as did the Red Wine.
My partner and I celebrate a special anniversary each year. The last 2 years we have chosen Stokehouse and will continue because Stokehouse is just perfect.
We are never disappointed, in fact we could not fault any part of our celebration.
Congratulations for making our night so memorable.
Great ambiance. Excellent quality food and service.
Food, service and view are perfect. Fantastic wine list. Will definitely dine there again.
A day out with the girls, we enjoyed a gorgeous lunch, spectacular views and a wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
Good ambience and location on a beautiful evening.
Food a little disappointing. Butterfly king prawns over cooked which spoilt my overall evening.
