The service is good and helpful. An impressive menu and the food is very good. If you like French cuisine you will find quite a fascinating menu.

When will this restaurant realise that people don't seek service that imposes attitude on the night out? We hadn't been here for a year or 2, because of the service experience, but decided to give it another go. The reasonable food was offset by the poor service There are much better options in the price range and in the area.

Went there recently with friends. Although the place was half empty we were sat next to two very rowdy tables, so we couldn't hear each other speak. The food was delicious but we all felt that the staff were a little snooty. They made a few dry comments and also felt the need to correct our French pronunciation of things... More

Went with my husband for dinner as one of our friend recommended the place to us (just moved to Perth 2 weeks ago) The food was superb and the ambience has nice touch of balmy Sydney which is a really nice feel. It was a busy night and we noticed that there's only 2 servers on the floor and there's... More

Excellent food and service. Good value and BYO wine with $12 corkage. Escargot is a must and the steak was great.

My fiancé and I came here for our 7 year anniversary dinner. Food was excellent. Everything was delicious. Unfortunately, service was a let down. The waitress for the evening was curt, rude and had an attitude. She clearly saw us patiently trying to catch her attention, but chose to ignore us. While we understand it was starting to get busy...

This has to be one of my favourite places to eat in Carlton. Great food with regular favourites and specials. It really is authentic French food as you would have it France. The one course I have every single time I go is the mussels cooked in a cream and champagne sauce. Try it with fries and soak them in... More

This is my second visit to Paris Go in a few weeks and each time I have been very impressed with the smooth service and the tasty food at reasonable prices. Paris Go is an institution and the value for money has not changed on over 20 years. Last Friday my wife and I had a really lovely dinner with... More

We are here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the traditional French cuisine. While they had some modern specials it seems most patrons including ourselves opted for the more traditional dishes. We will return as we now live nearby.

The food menu and wine list have plenty to choose from. The service was excellent. We were a group of 5 people and everything ordered was delicious!
