“Great food and fun staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Centrally located in Glen Waverley, the food is great and the staff are really friendly and fun. New items appear on the menu regularly and are always a treat. The Lunch menu with a glass of wine is a great encouragement for frequent visits. The special occasion dinners - Bastille Day, Cup Eve and New Years Eve are fantastic degustation meals with music and lots of fun. All in all my very favourite restaurant, we go there frequently and always enjoy it.

“We Got Robbed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Slow service, overpriced ordinary menu and top of that after paying for our bill, somehow $100 disappeared from the payment envelope between us handing it to the staff and the time we were leaving the restaurant. We were chased down and accused of not paying the correct amount, which was incorrect. We were not believed when we insisted we had. Tired and wanting to go home we paid the extra, making the night even more expensive again. Do not go to this restaurant. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Melbourne that charge less and provide excellent menus and service go to them instead.

“The food is good, Service well??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The food here is up to standard. Steak is a great choice,Or any of the proteins
The meals can come out at anytime. Mostly together. The attitude can be a bit sharp from managment Especily if you present a Entertainment gold card. They have tried to decline it at
times which can put a dampner on the night. Overall it is worth a go.

“A disappointing dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Unlike some reviews for this restaurant which have been favourable, this one is not. We arrived soon after 7 pm and did not receive our main courses until after 9 pm. One member of our group had an entree and main course, the others decided to have a main course and dessert. The entree arrived within a reasonable time but we then waited and waited. Finally after at least another hour we asked when we could expect our main course and the reply was "in 10 to 15 minutes". When the first dinner arrived it was the wrong meal so yet another delay while that was sorted out. My husband had ordered steak to be cooked medium yet when it arrived it was so rare - one side had been cooked okay but the other side barely at all. Another minus for the evening was the cost of corkage for our own wine - $7.50 per person which is ridiculous.

We were so disappointed with our dining experience that I sent an email to the restaurant but received no reply. It will be a long time before we return to this restaurant, if at all.

“Great celebration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I recently celebrated a milestone birthday and having returned from Paris my husband booked Frenchy's. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and we could see into the kitchen from our table. You can BYO your own wine but they have a good selection of wines and spirits. We enjoyed the french onion soup, a favourite of the men for sure. Our meals were well balanced and it was lovely to find souffle on the menu which a lot of french restaurants seem to have removed.
