Highly recommend the Stokehouse for a special event. Food was fresh, unusual and exquisitely presented. Ask for the hard copy menus and drink list. Wine list is exhausting.

Well designed menu. Items imaginatively assembled on the plate. Flavours individually and collectively exciting. Good wine list presented logically in two parts by the glass and by the bottle. Knowledgeable staff, welcoming and efficient. Frankly, didn't quite expect it to be this good.

I find the menu a little limited at the StokeHouse. I also think the at unless you get a table by the window it’s not worth it. The food is very good but I like the more casual atmosphere downstairs.

Lovely views across the bay and welcoming bar staff. However our waiter rushed through the menu options and specials which was unappealing.
Our meals were delicious and well presented.
Value for money? Probably would say no.

Great choice for lunch with gorgeous views of the bay. Great food and wines. What's not to like?
The service was attentive and just right. The food was enjoyed by everyone... even the vegan at the table. The cocktails were fabulous - both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Definitely need to go again and again

A busy night and an 8.45pm booking, we eventually ended up seated well after 9pm after being told at 8.50 "there's a couple of minutes delay" while other couples who arrived after us had already been seated. Then moved to another table, once the one we must've been expected to have finally became free. Food was great, however the main course didn't arrive for ages, eventually the waiter came across and said there were delays in the kitchen. At 10pm? The waiter and sommelier were great, food was as well when it arrived, just a shame the night was let down by the delays. We've been before though and not had these sorts of problems, so I guess it was just the night. Wouldn't stop us going again, would just book earlier in the evening so the delays didn't impact so much.

The best thing about Stokehouse St Kilda Beach is hands down the staff. Incredible folk who will do their utmost to make your experience the best it can be. They sure did for us. The food a close second. That seafood platter was amazing, as was the duck special. Wine list ranged a little on the high side with not enough in the middle but the house wine was great as are the cocktails. Thanks Team. We will return!

We absolutely loved the atmosphere at Stokehouse. Our service was fantastic. Loads of personality in our wait staff. Our only challenge was the noise level. We had two very large tables near ours and it was almost impossible to talk to each other at times. We still enjoyed our day.
