Stokehouse St Kilda beach is a favourite whenever we come to Melbourne. Never disappoints. Excellent food and service, extraordinary wine list (with great sommelier!) and fabulous location. Another great lunch.

This should be 4.5. Its very very good - I've been half a dozen times and I come back for a reason. But at around $350 for a dinner for two, you want it to be perfect every time. I guess not every time can be perfect, but it is still an amazing "must go" place to share with someone and always remember. I'll go back again.

My first visit to the “new build” Stokehouse. The feel of the old Stokehouse, has been kept but improved upon. The Service by Will and others was everything you would want. Very sensitive to the finer things. The food was so good. The seared Tuna from the seafood section of the menu was an out of this world (for our tastes) experience. When back in Melbourne would love to go again to experience more of the menu. And after this review I hope that I find a booking slot.

Corporate gift voucher totalling $300 made for a very nice dining experience.
Although not aware at the time of booking that a 6.30pm sitting was limited to 2 hours, the service was excellent and we were more than content with the 3 courses and drinks served, all within budget.
We were very happy with our choices and everything was delicious.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
