    Amazing views looking East over Melbourne city skyline and very relaxing. We were there before the after work rush so it was very pleasant and relaxing. Only had chips which were nice and a wine. Great area and will be back again.

    We booked a table for some after work drinks as some colleagues were in Melbourne from interstate. As usual everyone had a great time, and those going there for the first time loved the place. The weather was a bit cool and would have liked the heating on in the afternoon. We did not order food this time - but the food rating was off the back of our previous visit - and it was really good. Staff are great and service is always amazing. The Stolen Gem is a hidden gem.

    Had a great time at the rooftop bar, the view was nice and the service was excellent. The ladies behind the bar were friendly and our drinks they made were excellent. One thing that was missing was some fans as it was a hot day and it was a bit stuffy, can’t really have aircon as it’s all open.

    Thank you so much for accomodating us last night! 13 tipsy women can be a lot to manage but you all did such a great job. Really yummy drinks, scrumptious nibbles from Rice Paper Scissors & the most stunning views.

    The Stolen Gem is a great place for drinks and nibbles while watching the sun go down. They have a good selection of share plates at reasonable prices, drinks are also not overly expensive. It's not a huge rooftop bar and the level of music sound was just right for still being able to have a conversation, so it had a nice relaxed ambience feel. The only negative was the continuous instrumental music, felt like we were listening to the same tune for 2 hours

    I booked a few weeks ago for a Sunday afternoon and did not know until we got there that they were not offering any food - very disappointing as I specifically looked for somewhere we could have a drink and eat after mamma Mia - we stayed for 1 drink and left as we were super hungry. We should’ve been informed when we booked that this was the circumstance or when they were emailed for us to confirm our booking

    We reserved a table with the aim of ordering food and drinks only to be told 1. Food would come on the menu ‘later’. When we asked what time later should be, we were told in an hour 2. When we asked again we were told because of a private booking there would be no food That’s fine however why were we not informed of this prior or during our booking. We’re pretty laid back however this is taking the ****. We would not have booked and we have known there was no food. When we told there was no food, it was not in the most apologetic way. The restaurant has responded to our concerns which is something I suppose. Don’t normally complain but this spoilt our day.

    A little overrated. Drinks were great. Food was good. Not the best service- had table for two on a little bench not enough space to put food. Asked for serviettes and was told to get it from The counter. If I ever go again it would just be for drinks.

    We were really disappointed this time which was a shame as we took friends for the first time. Our booking was 9pm and all the food was sold out. Service for drinks was unbelievably slow and we actually had to go up and follow up our drinks twice. When we did talk to the staff they were sweet but just seemed really inexperienced. The view was amazing but sadly I think it believes it’s own hype as it has really slipped.

    Amazing city skyline views, but sadly seriously lacking in service. Booked online so we had a table reserved in advance. It was a Friday night so the place was busy - completely full. Only one staff member on hand to serve drinks and seat / allocate the tables. And only one staff member behind the bar making cocktails so not surprisingly, drinks took ages to arrive. The view was nice but I would return- one and done.

    Be aware, this bar requires a tab to be opened, which is fine, but they charge you the bill and do a double dip a couple of days later. Why they don’t do a pay per order is beyond the logic of this digital era. Staff on arrival were a bit dismissive, drinks were ok, but hard to mess up a gin and tonic, great view and food looked good.

    Hey Belinda, thanks for the review. Bar Tabs through our third party system HungryHungry are an additional option that you can select when ordering, you are more than welcome to pay as you go either via the QR codes or at the bar with one of our bartenders. In terms of the payments, as outlined when setting up the bar tab, a pre-auth is held on your card (this will show as pending in your account) then the amount spent is deducted from your card with the pre-auth returned shortly after. Thanks!
