“Exactly what we felt like!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We were recommended to try this restaurant y a friend who has never failed in his recommendations! Once again he delivered! The decor is very French and you can almost imagine you are in Paris. The service was attentive bad friendly, yet they knew when to leave you alone. The food was delicious. Escargot just cooked to perfection. Delightful Froi gras served at special request. They have a great wine selection. We will definitely be back!

“Genuine Parisian flavour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

This is one of the best French food experiences in Sydney. The staff & the owner Phillipe are warm & professional. The decor is charming & the food is all good quality bistro fare. It would be nice to have someone on the piano playing chanson....but maybe it is just hard to find good musicians. It is a touch on the expensive side as a meal for 2 with entree, main & wine will generally be at least $150 plus. However, for a genuine touch of France without the jet lag it is a good option & it warrants further return visits.

“French in style.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

We came arrived at 10 pm for a steak. We were curtiously attended to and food arrived promptly. Wine was a little too pricey for quality although this is our first visit to Sydney hence you need to judge.

Only big disappointment was the dessert. I asked for the Chocolate Fondant. What arrived looked like a cappuccino topped with a big dollop of cream. Found the sponge mix that had not risen under cream. The waiter should have accepted it was not an acceptable standard. Maybe we ordered too late. Anyway the cost was removed from bill once I said it was not reasonable to have to pay.

Worthwhile trying restaurant another time.

“French food in Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

I used to live near La Brasserie when I was working in Sydney. I recently visited Sydney and found La Brasserie to still serve authentic French food with great service (unlike some French restaurants in Paris). I like the soufflé appetizer but the escargot are also good. It is located on Crown off of William in a residential area so not in a prime tourist area like Darling Harbour. There are several other restaurants nearby and several have gone out of business over the last few years but La Brasserie is going strong.
