Me and my wife went out for dinner at the storehouse, the food was magnificent especially the octopus starter. Excellent service and beautiful views from the restaurant.

Will definitely be back in the future

Had our anniversary dinner there this week. It was a little strange given whats going on in the world and maybe not as busy or energetic as usual but the venue, food and service is fantastic. Well worth a visit.

The fish and chips were both overcooked-the fish-and undercooked-the chips.

It was a fantastic experience and everyone from the initial welcome to the final payment was outstanding.

The food was exceptional and well worth the price. I did find the wine costs very expensive and for the 8 people it ended up being a very costly exercise. It would not preclude me attending again and I have already recommended it as a perfect destination for a romantic dinner for two.

I would be proud to highly recommend this as a place in Melbourne people need to visit. I have many international friends and always looking for something special to do with them and with the location, view, ambiance and service this will be very high on my list.

Very attentive and knowledgeable staff ran us through the menu with ease.
A little humour from the staff and their smile added to the enjoyment of the evening.
Food & wine were superb.

Amazing atmosphere and beautiful views. Our oval shaped table for 6 along with the noise level made it very hard to chat. Food was beautiful however small portions and extremely small sides, ie chips, salads. Not really value for money and wouldn't rush back.

Service was excellent however we did wait a long long time for mains to appear and we were terribly disappointed with the food. The fish was over cooked and the steak was over done.
Very disappointing. It was a special occasion.

This was my first Sunday dinner experience at Stokehouse, and also my first meal with the new chef!
My whole party of four were very impressed with the quality of food, service and value for money considering the level of stars this establishment has.
Would highly recommend to anyone wanting superb food, views , service and value for money .

Food was ok, value was a little low even for the level of high service.

One minor complaint (not reflected in the score), is an hour after our seating they called us on the mobile to ask when we’re arriving. After that, I was forced to clear with Open Table that we had attended, even though I asked them to come to our table. Ridiculous and a waste of time!

We had a less than satisfactory experience here. The food was really awful. My fish and chips were poorly presented. They were just put on the plate with no form of garnish. The batter was burnt and the fish overcooked. My friend’s $80 half lobster was equally as bad. The waiter was annoying, almost honeymooning us, and dropped us like hot cakes when we didn’t give a tip, not even seeing us to the door. Beautiful surrounds with a fabulous view of the beach but we will certainly not be returning.

Service very lacking, took ages to clear and no additional drinks offered. Food was good, not great however if you charge a premium than the taste should match, which they failed to do. I have definitely had much better.

A shame about the 2 hour window however understand the importance of turning over the tables.
The staff were excellent, wine knowledge impeccable, food sensational and a glorious sunny day.

I dined with another two couples last Saturday night. One of the couples had previously purchased a $200 voucher to use on the night to celebrate my birthday. When we attempted to redeem the voucher we were told that it had been purchased incorrectly for another restaurant and although the restaurant was part of the same group, we were told that it couldn't be used on the night and they would attempt to get it switched from the other restaurant to the Stokehouse in St Kilda. The voucher was switched across very efficiently the next day however, it creating an embarrassing situation for the couple that had purchased the voucher on the night that could have been avoided by honouring the voucher immediately and not re-issuing the next day.

This is a critique of opentable not stoke house. Advised of dietary limitations and no dairy and no seafood and the first 2 courses were a butter dish and a seafood dish. I don’t know who messed this up but It was a very expensive night for what we got.

Now, Stokehouse Amazing. Seated in the best place in the venue. Staff were ok probably way to busy. Ambience excellent. Just a shame no one gave a rats about altering the meal choices on their fixed 4 course valentines dinner

overall we had a great night. Sea views are always pleasant. Food was excellent but we had to wave down a staff member to take our order after receiving the menus 30 minutes earlier. Prices are "up there" in comparison to the small servings. Recommend the chips!

I’ve been a regular at The Stokehouse over the years and have always loved it. This recent visit was very disappointing and most particularly because the famous fish and chips did not live up to expectation. The fish was overcooked and dry and the chips were ordinary. Don’t like writing a poor review but can’t find it in me to say nothing.

Possibly the best restaurant view in Melbourne, the modern Stokehouse is architecturally beautiful inside and out. The restaurant in the late afternoon is filled with a lovely glow from the sun setting over the Cheetham wetlands towards the Southwest. The food is great, relatively simple with emphasis on fewer, higher quality ingredients presented immaculately. A new favourite for my family.

First visit to Stokehouse and it was very enjoyable. Staff were so friendly and helpful, without being over the top. The Food was exquisite - most amazing Roast Eggplant and the Roast Chicken was also very tasty. Although it was an overcast day - sitting next to the window we felt we were on the Bay. Great lunch time atmosphere.
