    Loved the ambiance of the place and the location is perfect for a stroll along the St Kilda foreshore...excellent first date restaurant. The chilled out music was nice which allowed for easy conversation and the food was tops. My barramundi main was a 10, so tender and the puree complimented the dish well. The porterhouse could have been more juicier but that could of been because it was cooked to medium. The standout dessert was the violet panna cotta...definitely would go back for this!

    My partner and I randomly found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. We ordered the steak and cheeseburger. We were beyond happy with this find. We’ll definitely be bringing friends back

    I had booked this for my mum to see parts of Melbourne that I love. She was delayed due to public transport but the staff were so understanding and kept the reservation for me. Fantastic food and amazing cocktails. I highly recommend the 12 hour slow cooked brisket with chipotle mash and the maple haze cocktail for the lovers of whiskey Third visit and I'll definitely be back again!

    Very nice food and drink! Especially the beef~ Good services and environment suits all the needs. Just a little pity to waste food as no take away available.

    The food was delicious! Service was more than 10 stars. I don't know why there are reviews saying the portions are small, and they wouldn't pay for the full price. We had a shared starter and two mains and we're unable to finish the mains as the mains were really big. Beef brisket was cooked to perfection. The food quality and quantity is worth even the full price. We'll be back again! ????

    It was fantastic only complaint I have was I had to go up flights of stairs to the rest rooms and given I had to use a walking stick it was hard .... but it's a very old historic building so I had to excuse it. The venue food and staff were wonderful, my friend and I had a light meal as we were going to a venue but will definitely be back to have a full meal and make a night of it . Really good :)

    I couldn't be more pleased with our experience at St Luja. Attentive and friendly service from the staff, great selection of delicious cocktails, and the food is honestly heaven. The chef has put together a great menu. We had the steak, beef cheek, and brisket, and every dish was spot on with the most tender melt in your mouth meat and perfect accompaniments. The restaurant itself is intimate and inviting. We enjoyed every moment of our visit. Will definitely be back!

    The staff is really friendly to tourists. The steak and fish of the day are also superb. I will recommend St LuJa to my friends. It’s the best choice of having dinner at St Kilda.

    Great service, location and atmosphere.. Steak was ok.. I have had better (it was a little tough) otherwise nice taste.. Other dishes were ok too.. great discount when booking through The Fork too (50% off food only). Would return if seeing a show at The Palais again

    Cocktails were lovely and the drink list was fantastic, but the food was inedible. Ordered the starter board, loaded fries and the ribs. The starter board was average at best, best thing on it were the buffalo wings which there were only two of, everything else I could’ve made at home better. The fries and the ribs were truly terrible. Fries were soggy covered in tasteless orange sauce and the ribs were dry. Will go back for the bar, but will give the food a miss.

    Relaxed atmosphere, huge range of drinks and cocktails, great service and yummy food! Serving sizes could be a bit larger, however otherwise everything else is on point!

    Nice vibe, food was really nice, pork ribs were great. They wouldn't let us take a doggy bag though which was disappointing as food was just going to be put in the bin.

    Ten out of ten for service and ten out of ten for the food. The venue was also very cozy and at a great location. Would highly recommend visiting this restaurant
