We had the best meal of our three nights in Melbourne. The lamb was done to perfection and the desserts - yum! Excellent service as well. Pleasant , unobtrusive background music, which is a rarity now days. I highly recommend.

My partner and I had a quick lunch at Noir today. It was delicious. I had the gnocchi with a side of green vegetables and my partner had the duck. It was honest perfectly executed food. We will be back with friends for dinner.

We booked this restaurant for our wedding anniversary, because of its "hat". We're surprised that it has a hat. Service was good, entrees were good but the mains were a let-down. My lamb came in a rich sauce and my wife's fish was pedestrian. The vegetables on the side were peas, broccoli and some others - tasted fine but looked... More

This is the fourth time I've been to Noir and it never disappoints. Every meal I've ever had at Noir has been well-prepared and delicious. My recommendations would be the gnocchi or the beef tartare. The atmosphere is romantic and relaxed. The service is OK, nothing memorable.

This is a wonderful delicious meal created by chefs who enjoy what they do. Plated lovingly and All served by a professional. A really... More

Menu is not lengthy but I liked the food very much. Oyster shots with Champagne granita and Coriander chilli were amazing. I ordered Murray Cod fish with fresh vegetables as my main and the dish was subtle but tasty. I felt the flavours were just right with nothing over powering. Desserts were just amazing. Their French meringue is an absolute... More

Quick dinner her prior to the Boss concert. Ebony front of the house (partner of chef) was very friendly. Ordered oysters to share with champagne granita, osyters were really fresh, found the granita too sweet. The mains were the high light, my wife had the Murray Cod with fricasse of vegetables and sorrel butter and this was delicious. I had... More

I was recently introduced to Noir which I'd been told was very popular amongst locals. There is a warm and friendly atmosphere, and staff are very pleasant and attentive. In a group of 6 we sampled a variety of meals - lamb, beef, fish and pasta - and all dishes were absolutely delicious. Beautiful presentation and rich flavours, and portions... More

Noir has a double frontage in busy Swan Street near busy Church Street and I am close to being local but I have never noticed it before. My mistake. We had a lovely meal. We had the degustation menu with no meat but a fish substitution for the main course. It was good to leave ourselves in the hands of... More

We organised the tasting menu for a party with a group of eight. The main course of beef with cauliflower was a highlight. The service was good and we enjoyed the wine, including a wonderful Alsace riesling. It really was a very enjoyable meal and a great night out for a special occasion with good friends.
