Such small serves for lunch. We had the set menu but really I wouldn't bother again. We asked the waiter to take a table photo when the resturant was three quarters empty but was told he was too busy. Really anywhere in the world a waiter would happily oblige. This was for a special birthday but we were not allowed... More

Impressive staff. Friendly, chatty (but not too much), going the extra mile, helpful, welcoming, charming, smiling and so much more. Makes one realise how delightful a night can be with such service. Not one person was less than superb. The food was excellent. The French onion soup delivers, scallops perfectly cooked, veal unreal, minute steak great, tarte tatin and creme... More

I came with my husband for his Birthday last week because Bistro Thierry is his favourite French restaurant in Melbourne. We both shared the calamari and the scallops which were, as per usual, amazing. I then had the chicken, which was succulent and flavoursome and my husband had his favourite, the eye fillet with fries. We have been coming to... More

I had not been here for a while. I was a bit concerned reading recent negative TripAdvisor reviews. Thankfully, all my concerns were put to rest after an enjoyable visit and delicious 2 course meal. I dined solo for lunch on a rainy Tuesday. Surprisingly busy for a week day. I was made to feel welcome as soon as I... More

This lovely French bistro is both relaxed and refined. The waiting staff are fantastic and the wine list offers a huge choice suitable to almost any budget. We sampled the onion soup, prawns and scallops for entre, and each were equally delicious. I had the obligatory steak frites which did not disappoint and I really enjoyed the side of beans... More

My wife and I visited for my birthday for dinner and couldn't be happier with first class service. Exactly what we expected from being greeted through to paying the bill at the end. We shared most of what we had, scallops were terrific and the French onion soup was great too. Prawns fairly much as expected as was the steak.... More

Fantastic little place. A few negative comments on Trip Advisor but we had nothing to complain about. The lamb and beef were beautiful. The deserts were spot on. The service was excellent. Yes it is a little pricey but hey look where you are, one of the best areas in Melbourne. little note on the side - Bit of celeb... More

Its always nice when you revisit a place and find it is... More

Great if you want to spend loads of money on tiny plates of food. $15 for a scoop of icecream for a six year old. Puh-leez! There are better, cheaper French restaurants where ALL the wait staff are actually French. The tables were squeezed uncomfortably close; I was bumped as the waiter tried to get through. Don't bother unless you... More

Correction 1: we charge $16 for 4 scoops of ice cream with macarons; one scoop is $4.50 Correction 2: all our waiting staff are French, the Manager is Australian. Merci pour vos commentaires More
