Escargot, cheese, pate, divine creams and a wine selection to write home about, Montrachet does it again. I don't know what I love more, the food, the wine, the ambience, the decor or the gorgeous smiles of the team who make this restaurant one of the most romantic venues in the CBD>

As you may know Montrachet recently changed owners; so the question most asked in Brisbane is..."is Montrachet still good", to which the answer is happily as "good as ever"! This is based on a recent lunch experience; so I just need to do dinner there soon to make sure that is also up to standard, but I am sure it... More

The best restaurant that we have been to, Montrachet beats Alchemy and Aria in the perfection of its offerings. The crab soufflé with gruyere cheese is to die for and the steak melts in your mouth. Great service. If you have only ONE restaurant to visit in Brisbane, Montrachet has got to be IT. Enlightened owner takes entire staff to... More

Was my favourite restaurant in the whole of Aus but seems to have gone off the boil, entree was poor, steak overcooked, pomme frites were just plain chips although, the service was still great. Sadly the experience won't take me back there. Might be a one off but the focus on quality wasn't there for me.

OMG the food is amazing!!! It is s very charming restaurant, makes you almost feel like you're in France. Our water was outstanding with a wicked sense of humour. I believe we had almost everything on the menu. And everything was superb. Will definitely be back, hopefully soon

No problems with our visit with food or service, overall a very pleasant experience. I don't like the setup of the tables, so close that the staff have to drag a table away for those sitting against the wall to get to or from their seat. This is inexcusable and a real let down for a restaurant that is trying... More

I came to Montrachet for the first time without high hopes, but to see how the place is in terms of service and food quality. It is a pleasant place for family reunions or friends to catch up, although I dislike the snobbish atmosphere accentuated by the leather menu, which makes me uncomfortable. Seats were comfortable. The waitress was attending,... More

Venison very poorly cooked. Well done and dry. Escargot very average and underseasoned. Decor is nice. Wine list is prohibitively expensive for what it is. Very disappointing. Avoid.

I had the pleasure of dining at Montrachet a few years ago with my family, and the experience was amazing - fantastic, delicious food, and great service. So I have been waiting for a chance to go back! New owners bought Montrachet earlier this year as we found out when we got there, and the night left me wishing that... More

everything about this restaurant gives you the French experience from the ambience to the food. It is only small but the fact it is not overcrowded makes you feel special. Great for special occasions and easy parking
