Always dependable, brilliant Fillet de Boeuf and Creme Brulee. The buzz in this place is always great.
It was a warm late summer Friday night and this bistro was packed and noisy, but we got a table for 4 without a wait. Our female server was brusque in a typical French manner, but finally warmed at the insistence of our visiting friend. We were overwhelmed by the monster wine list, and I thought the woman would have... More
The service at France Soir is brisk and brusque. Very French. Or rather it is when you can get any. Our waiter apologised for leaving us unattended for some time as he was busy saying 'hello' to various patrons passing our table.

This very chic french restaurant in the heart of South Yarra is pricey, but the food is great. The staff are mostly French and friendly, but efficient, given that the place is packed.

The restaurant was much smaller than I expected but the setting was cozy, the service very good but the Steak Frites which was showcased on the DVD was disappointing. The scotch fillet was tasty but the quality... More
Came here with friends for their first take on French cuisine. We shared the escargot and lambs brains. Although my friends were apprehensive in trying something new, they loved it and thought it was delicious. The service is great but can be hit and miss. But it's forgiven, the place is noisy and full of people, it's no wonder they're... More
We have been eating at France-Soir for special occasions over the last 5 years, and figured it was time to post a review. This is the only Melbourne restaurant I trust to cook a perfect blue steak! The escargot (snails) are a definite favourite, and we can never go past a good steak. On the rare occasion we're not too... More
