Great Food, Attentive Service. A "Must Go" Restuarant!

Having dined at Bistro Dorsay on a number of occasions in recent times, I have found myself becoming a devotee of this wonderful establishment in Collins St, Melbourne. The food is always outstanding. It is fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. The chefs are doing a great job with the... read more

Had a wonderful meal here before a show at regent theatre across the road. The service was impeccable our waiter was a true professional she anticipated our every need whether filling our wine, our water or placing our meals. She was friendly and had the most wonderful accent being from Lyon France. The food was delightful and the wine list... More

We had an anniversary dinner here tonight and were completely blown away with the food, the service and the general welcoming atmosphere at Bistrot d'Orsay. The service was attentive without being intrusive, the welcoming glass of champagne was very ... welcoming and the food amazing. If you love life, visit this place for your next special occasion!

Five of us went last Saturday night, and were disappointed. We booked in at 6pm, and the French girl waiter was only interested in getting us through the meal and out the door so they could get more revenue. We ordered starter plates and not knowing the size of these, we opted not to also order our main at the... More

Asked if they could do gluten free when booked. Of course was the answer. Every other French restaurant we have been to in Melbourne and France can do it but, after arriving and ordering, we found out they couldn't! Even my duck ragout was very average and I'm not a coeliac! My husband went hungry, although I must say they... More

We had booked a show at The Athenaeum Theatre and were just checking out our tickets when we noticed the Bistrot d'Orsay tucked in beside the theatre. We had intended to eat before the show so decided to give it a try. A really cosy little restaurant with fabulous decor and a real atmosphere. We were early with some time... More

We have often been here and the latest was on Tue 19 May 2015. My, my what a terrible disappointment! Changes in staff, chef and overall service poor. It has gone backwards. No one bothered to top up our wine glasses, which they used to do before. There was no..."How was your meal?" like they used to ask before. Shame,... More

We went based on the reviews and I must have to say that this restaurant should be closer to the top. The food was great. Try the Pear tartin with Almond Icecream. The service by Karli was top notch. A must go to.

They said there would be a little wait and then came back and said we could be seated by the front door, declined that offer as... More
