We wanted a nice night out and were happy to pay for a good quality dinner. It was our first time at this restaurant and had high expectations. The French champagne that was recommended was beautiful and the wine list was very comprehensive. We were recommended this restaurant by a few friends so decided to go. We shared an escargot...

My partner has apparently wanted to come here for many years due to the constant ratings for this place but as I'm not a fan of French foods (generally overrated) apart from pastries and sweets....anyway we ordered the shredded duck pate to share as entree, then I had the Orange Duck, partner ordered Beef Bourguignon, finish with Creme Brûlée....our waiter...

Had another wonderful meal here last night. The food and service were as good as ever with friendly, efficient staff, well cooked food, an extensive wine list and an atmosphere that is oh so French. We love eating here and will be back soon

Great meal from an iconic Melbourne restaurant. We really loved our meal at France Soir. The restaurant was crowded for good reason! The food was great! Duck was perfectly cooked.

Dined here on a Saturday night - extremely busy and packed, giving it a nice 'bistro' feel. The wait-staff are really attentive and knowledgeable. The food is OK - its very tasty, and I would be more than happy to be served this standard of food anytime..except when you're asked to pay the price they have on the menu. The... More

We were a party of six but only four were expected by one of the party. Meet the in-laws!!! This was our second time at France Soir and our waitron recognised us and remembered which table we had been seated at!!! This was some months ago mind you. As previously the menu was tantalising and the wine menu daunting but... More

Disappointed in quality and service. I had escargots for entree and they were nice. I had confit duck as main and it did not have any juice. My husband had scallops St.Jaques as entree and they were well over cooked. His main course was veal chop with mushrooms , the chop was under cooked. Service was very mediocre. Better French...
