The company of great friends will always make it a great night. It's a pity the re-opened Stokehouse did not live up to expectations and past reputation. Venue still has a lot of finishing work to go, including toilets and bar area. Menu is small. Servings are small - you must get side dishes to make it a full meal.... More

Two couples went there for dinner on New Years Day and overall the experience was a good one. The staff were all excellent, patient and very aware of the menu choices. The wine list was varied and reasonably priced. We each had three courses and with one bottle of Whispering Eagle Shiraz 2015 ($80) and three side salads the price... More

It has been a long 3 years since I have had the pleasure of visiting my FAVORITE restaurant in Melbourne! Pre the fire I have spent many amazing evenings in r the upstairs restaurant and drunk MANY wines on a summer’s day below. We were lucky enough to get a booking for my birthday only 6 days after they’re opened!... More

A pleasant Sunday afternoon luncheon in the newly rebuilt restaurant was greatly anticipated and I review it with mixed feelings. I guess like most things new it needs time to settle down and renew its position as an institution. I had no problems with the menu, I felt it was well balanced with plenty to choose from as was the... More

We went to the reopened Stokehouse which still has a way to go to fully complete renovations. I was disappointed with the menu. Only six main course choices. Lots of fancy appertisers etc but mains were limited. The restaurant was full so service was a bit so slow. I don't think I will go back in a hurry.

A very pleasant space, like a ball room decorated in chic flavour with nautical touches. I liked it. Staff friendly and helpful, maybe a little more St Kilda boathouse than city style. Food was very good as expected. They will 'get better' too.

The Stokehouse in St. Kilda is somewhat of an institution and a "must visit place" on every trip to Melbourne. We only hope that it will be re-built after its destruction by fire last January. Of course, the view over the ocean, a fine menu with a lot of fresh fish and a wonderful wine list with a big choice... More

I could not give this restaurant a high score the last time we visited, but it is terrible for everyone that its recent destruction by fire has lost St Kilda an excellent venue. A great sadness indeed.

The Stokehouse has been a long time favourite for us as we live in Melbourne. The fact that it burnt down 2 months is shocking but the good news is that the poop up is great. We had a family dinner there last week. The menu is a combination of what was on offer downstairs and upstairs - it works... More
