Could not fault this place - young male waiter and Olivia were excellent

The oysters were beautiful, as was the tuna, lamb, duck and aubergine tortellini. The potato gratin was perfect, as were the beans and the hand cut chips. Souffle brilliant! A special place to dine and we'll be back.

This place is very relaxed and chilled. I visited here as a couple and enjoyed the great service and food from the team. It was a quiet evening but the service was excellent, very polite and happy to assist. The food was amazing! deeeelish! Thanks! Keep up the good work!

My partner and I dined here on a Friday night and were extremely happy with the food and the service. We had a fantastic night... until the time came to pay the bill. After leaving a $10 tip on our $200 bill, the waiter barely grunted at us, let alone thanked us before walking away. As we were walking ourselves... More

I have no idea why staff on a Saturday evening should not be at their best or at least striving to be. Perhaps it reflects poor supervision or training. But it was the equivalent of a 16 year old teenage boy being told "This is how you are spending Saturday night! And then there was the food - had the... More

We visited with great expectations based on Trip Advisor and these expectations weren't met. We were upstairs in a private room where the service was indifferent and the meals disappointing. If you want a filling meal, order steak because the fish portion was very small.

Fantastic food. Well presented, not too much in the servings. We had the chefs special 4 course tasting menu and a great bottle of Mornington Peninsula Pinot. Was perfect. Recommend this place👍

In a family dinner before a show at Rod Laver Arena, we could not have chosen better. The service efficiency and location of Noir was ideal. The restaurant dealt well with a wide range of allergies - gluten free, dairy free etc. The limited range early menu was ideal to allow event attendance. The food was the excellent and reflected...

Noir has a separate function room to the main restaurant complete with separate entrance, bar, amenities, open area and kitchen, all of which lent itself perfectly to our company's Christmas celebrations. We had the feasting menu which was perfect. We arrived at 12 midday and were still enjoying fabulous food at 3:30pm. We had asked for a slow food experience... More

I was told to come here to try the oysters, and indeed they are the best I've ever had. Served fresh with a granita they were cool and refreshing, a perfect start to the meal. The duck breast and confit was tender and the leg confit crispy and decadent, with a rich jus. All beautifully presented, and importantly well balanced... More
