Dining at Bistro Guillaume on Friday 21st April 2017 to catch up & celebrate my recent Birthday. As always the food & service are always top notch, but a little disappointed that nothing special was provided for my Birthday such as a complimentary glass of Bubbles etc... even though they knew we we're here to celebrate, so there was no...

We went here for lunch, and over-all were pleased with the experience. The service was friendly and efficient. Very good bread was provided and replenished if asked. There were a few bottles of French red wine that were reasonably priced as well. Of the two main courses we had, the rack of lamb was excellent. Outstanding in fact. Tender, pink... More

My grandma and I enjoyed a quiet dinner here last Thursday. We had a beautiful seat out the front overlooking the Yarra! Would highly recommend the oysters as an entree and the pork belly main course. The staff were very attentive and polite. It's expensive, but you know that before walking through the door. The drinks are definitely on the... More

Birthday dinner for 4 Saturday 8th. We have been here a few times & again had a good evening. I'm writing as this was the first time we have tried the Wagyu Beef wow 3 of us shared the price may stop you $160 but defiantly worth every cent. Cooked perfect we had it medium rare melted in the mouth... More

Visited here with my partner on a busy Saturday night and was more than impressed! We started with a cocktail and beer and then dived straight into mains as we weren't too hungry. My partner had the pork belly, his favorite and something he has to try everywhere we go - it did not disappoint and was cooked to perfection.... More

My husband and I visited on a Saturday night for the first time after making a booking online. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the staff were very friendly. The food certainly lived up to expectations, with my husband enjoying the roast chicken and myself the steak frites. Both were delicious. We followed with Creme Brulee and Chocolate Souffle... More

We were staying at Crown and we were looking at the many restaurants on offer to try in the precinct. We have always wanted to try Bistro Guillame in Sydney so thought we would give it a go. No booking, but were seated promptly at a lovely table. I was sceptical about trying such famous restaurant in a hotel location,... More

A lover of what Guillaume has achieved before but this experience was void of his usual finesse. Waiters indifferent, wrong meals served to not just our table but the diners opposite. Had to chase for extra wine and cutlery wasn't replaced after entree and main served and they walked away. Food average and the 40 dollar barramundi watery and limp.... More

Ideally located next to Nobu, Bistro Guillaume features an extensive outdoor terrace, a hallmark of the world's best bistros, a zinc-topped bar, a private room and a spacious, welcoming dining area.
