“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Montrachet is one of the best restaurants I have been to, with superb food, excellent service and an impeccable wine list. Just make sure to book well in advance- a couple of weeks is advisable!

“A1 Brisbane restaurant!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Montrachet is, in my opinion, Brisbane's best restaurant.
It never fails to disappoint.
I have been here on many occasions and the food is superb, the wine list fabulous and the service is efficient but not pushy.
The staff are thoroughly professional and polite.
AND have I mentioned the food? Each course has something for everyone, perfect portions, perfectly cooked every time.
I cannot fault this restaurant. A permanent favourite.
We have been there for a romantic dinner and have also been there as a family. Prepare to pay not much more than a standard, run of the mill restaurant for far superior food and service.

“Magnifique!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

We had a really lovely long lunch here on a Wednesday while visiting Brisbane. It was very quiet but then it was midweek and not in the CBD. The restaurant itself is gorgeous, really feels like an authentic French bistro. Both wait staff who dealt with us were excellent, despite our want to wait a while for dessert (we really wanted to try something as they sounded and turned out to be, divine) thus making them wait around for us, it didn't bother them as can do at some places, they were more than happy for us to do so. Just lovely, would certainly go back if I was ever in the city again. Highlights: The soufflé with crab was AMAZING and the brûlée the best I've tried (although hubby only let me taste a small bit of his), the banana tarte tartin was heaven. Just made myself hungry thinking about it all again.

“WAITTRESS WITH BAD ATTITUDE, POOR SERVICE, DUCK WAS OVER-COOK!!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

WAITTRESS WITH BAD ATTITUDE, POOR SERVICE, DUCK WAS OVER-COOK!!!

We decided to go to Montrachet for my birthday dinner. What I want to say about this restaurant is : NOT up to standard both their food and service!!!

1. The owner/chef saw us (in fact he was just standing in front of where we were being seated) and never even say 'Hi'. However, he has been greeting all the regulars!!

2. KATIE was our waitress- she's definitely one waitress with bad attitude!
She never asked whether we would like a glass of wine when she took the order-- with the look of 'we are so cheap, we are not going to order any wine'!

3. We ordered 2 entrees , one being Escargot (snail) and i was utterly disappointed. Totally different than what i had when i was in France and any other renowned restaruants in Australia!!

4.Duck was over-cooked and it was so chewy/rubbery- So Disappointed!!!
However, the lady seated next to me (who knew the owner) got perfectly cooked duck!!!

5.Katie has given us the bad attitude when we didn’t pay them any tips!! Of course!! Not even ONE CENT for the service and food that your restaurant had provided !!! Not that we are cheap, mind you, we used a PLATINUM CREDIT CARD to pay for the bill!!!

**** One word of advice- do NOT go to this restaurant unless you know the owner/chef ! Because you will be treated so differently in both Food and Service!!!!*****
