Firstly the service at this restaurant was excellent. The staff were attentive and friendly with a sense of humour. Complements to the chefs - the food was divine. My main was cooked to perfection, and the black fig dessert was to die for. The ambience of the restaurant was warm and friendly and I would definitely go back again.

This sophisticated yet relaxed restaurant is high on my list of new favorites. The food was impressively divine and the staff who are actually French were skilled in what they do. The waiters knew the menu and the wines and the chef could definitely cook - the food was amazing. I will definitely be going back. It's true you really do get what you pay for and if you go here you will get a real treat!!!

$16.50 for a smallish bowl of French onion soup is a bit steep even by Melbourne standards. To cater for modern tastes, old French classics have been "lightened up" ...still tasty but nothing special. Conveniently located on a lane (aka alley) off Flinders with a contemporary decor. A largish entry way has "outdoor" seating that alas only looks out at a brick wall opposite. Perhaps because we were having an early dinner the staff did not seem to be quite ready for service.

I continue to return and recommend this restaurant.
Not only for the superbe french style of cooking, but also the friendliness and good humour of the staff.
A formulae, choice of 2 courses and a drink, is available at lunchtimes.
I suggest always booking

After reading other reviews we were lucky enough to get a table at short notice.We tried the chefs table - the chef selects 4 or 5 courses for you.We were able to let them know about any no go food or allergies and we were simply delighted with the selection.While niether of us would have selected beef tatare it was scrumptious.The wait staff were delightful and overall our evening was wonderful.We are looking forward to another evening there.Thank you French Brasserie!
