Good but not wonderful.

Food was good but there was no atmosphere. Staff were attentive but there was very little interaction with diners. Courses were placed on the table with no comments from the servers.

No wonder this restaurant is a favourite of the locals. The food and service are always consistently good.

Booking a table was an easy phone call. Efficient & friendly service - I don't understand some recent comments about bad service- as we couldn't fault the staff. The food was delicious & good value. Pity we couldn't eat it all, but they kindly offered to nicely wrap up a doggy bag. Definitely going back.

Lovely Bistro Moncur in the heart of Woollahra. I felt rich just sitting in this bastion of elegance. I ordered the fresh oysters which is always a winner and the signature dish which was a steak sirlion with a delicious sauce with a french flavour. The wine list was comprehensive and interesting but not too exhaustive/pretentious. The service was excellent... More

Good food. Good service. Yet way overpriced. Seems to be very popular with the local crowd who don't seem to care about value. This may be due to the fact that the majority of dinners appear to be "ladies that do lunch" who have never mastered the notion of earning money, yet at the same time they clearly excel at... More

I think our husbands may have conspired to keep us away from this very cute neighborhood until late enough in the day that the shops were closing (but not late enough that we didn't have time to buy something)! Not only a great neighborhood but a very nice restaurant. We took a cab from The Marriott at the Sydney Harbor... More

Although the chefs have changed a few times over the years, this place never fails to deliver. The food is classic French bistro and to some may seem a little old fashioned , however to the good folk of Woollahra it is a winning formula. The steak and chips is so much better than it sounds and I have to... More

Apparently Bistro Moncur doesn't usually open on New Year's Eve as it doesn't have a view. It makes up for that by serving beautiful food in a pleasant atmosphere. The place was packed, not an empty seat in the house. I had 2 entrees as I knew I needed to leave room for a pud, and I'm so glad I... More

Firstly, a family group of six dined there during December 2013. The wine selection was from the Alsace wine region, France : bubbles, pinot griis, and a red I cannot recall. Secondly, another family group of four returned there during February 2014 for a family celebration. Thirdly, another family dinner there during December 2014. I had a glass of bubbly... More

To summarise the below: poor service, poor food. I do not understand how this place has one hat!! We were not provided with Any plate for bread and butter. We thought it was just the restaurant that was like that. But then we saw that all other tables were provided plates. The French fries came with a white color....Undercooked fries... More
