The food and service were excellent and would probably add a few more items on the menu to have more variety. Many fish dishes

I was very surprised at the dominance of imported wine ( French and Italian ) versus the lack of premium domestic wines

One of the most delicious courses I have ever eaten; followed by a not very impressive fish dish. The ambience is wonderful and wine list really good. Biggest concern was cost / value equation. Seemed excessively expensive

Celebrating a special birthday for a friend. The service staff made the day extra special and presented her dessert with a candle and special dish. Lovely food and ambiance-a great place for a special celebration everyday!

Venue is fantastic, service great, wine and food very expensive.
Could not afford to go here regularly, special occasions only.
Not enough food choices without chilli or spices, pretty much only the steak options.

Food and ambience were great but the service was the star for me. The wine suggestion from the sommelier was fantastic, an unusual 2008 Solvenian white that somehow went as well with the wagyu tartare and lamb as the John Dory. Good work team Stokehouse!

The service was outstanding, better than my expectations! The food was sublime, the meat was cooked perfectly and the combination of flavors was surprisingly tasty! My favorite place in Melbourne!!

Good high quality dishes, but overpriced compared to other similar restaurants. Staff were friendly and service was ok.
Probably won’t return.

The atmosphere and view were great. So was the service. However, the food wasn’t up to the standard we expected for the price.

I took my partner here to celebrate his birthday. The view of the bay is nice but gets lost once the sun goes down. The food was good and the tasting menu made for good value. Great selection of wines. Staff were attentive but not always the most knowledgeable about the menu and the wines.

We had a beautiful girls lunch on Saturday! The weather was miserable, which made it even better being inside and cozy. My waitress was absolutely lovely and very attentive! Our food is delicious and the whole vibe was just fab. Will be back again soon!

The stokehouse was a great place for dinner. It is very professional and the workers and food were impeccable. I would highly recommend eating at this fine restaurant. It is a very good experience and worth the money,.

I was quite disappointed with Stokehouse. This is the first opportunity i have had to come back since re-development.
I expected a fine dining experience, but the ambience was so casual - and NOISY. Could hardly hear my partner speak.
The waitress was distracted, and basically throwing plates on our table.
The food quality was great,.
I do not think i would come back.

Yes, but only for drinks and snacks
Too expensive for portion size and we left out of pocket $450 and hungry. Not for teenages....
Beautiful atmosphere though

There was an event on when we were there which was fine but our table was right beside the entrance of it. Felt like we were in the way a bit when people were taking photos..Food was nice, ordered the steak but it was over cooked which was disappointing but felt because there was such a big table with the event that was on that maybe that’s why our food suffered a little. Beautiful venue and would love to go back when it’s maybe just hosting lunch/dinner.

My parents had their 60th Wedding Anniversary there and were beautifully looked after by the staff there especially Andy who bent over backwards to ensure their day was amazing. The are in their 80’s and travelled from Mt Martha. Thankyou for making their milestone memorable

We had a lovely evening. The food was very nice... especially
the starters. All main dishes were delicious but we felt that the cauliflower was burnt We enjoyed the carrots.... Coffee was OK except one guest asked for a hot latte and it was really just warm..
The restaurant is beautiful but it was very full and the noise level quite high

Stokehouse is for serious foodies who know both their food and wine and the combination of both.

Knowledgeable staff and excellent customer service makes dining a pleasure and the destination worthwhile.

The ambience and views are faultless , making the restaurant perfect for any special occasion event.

We had an early sitting prior to a show at the Palais , so time was limited.

In saying that , we did not feel rushed , pressured to leave or a sense that we could not receive the full experience .

We started the evening with a couple of saltbush margaritas and the fresh oysters-amazing.

We then followed with the lamb and cavatelli and sides of triple cooked potatoes ( OMG !) and cress salad which all arrived simultaneously . Both the lamb and pasta cooked to perfection and immaculately presented.

We did not stop there and ordered a desert to share and we were recommended to try the Neapolitan.

This was such a good choice and refreshing way to end the meal.

The textures and natural flavours of the desert would have to be one of the best desserts I have ever had.

In summary , stokehouse is a good example of one of Melbourne's best restaurants.

Although pricey , once you have the full experience , it is clear that the ingredients , skill and innovation is what you are paying for and it is well worth it.

Great night out-well done to all

What a lovely 5-course lunch we had on Saturday. Matching wines were perfectly chosen for each course and both our waiter and the wine specialist made us feel very special. Worth every penny and will highly recommend to anyone.
