This is one of our favourite restaurants, but this visit was a little underwhelming. Sadly, the salt and pepper squid was over cooked and inedible. Service was impeccable and I’m sure tonight was the exception as previous visits have always impressed.

Food and service was outstanding. Great waiter and it was clear that the produce is carefully selected for the dishes. Lamb was cooked perfectly. Menu also includes lots of Gluten Free options.

Lovey old house as a setting. Food got better as the meal went on. Will try a different Entree next time. Mains and my partners dessert were very good. Wine glasses didn’t match and service was perhaps too quick. Maybe it’s just that I don’t like being referred to as ‘guys’ and they seemed in a hurry for us to finish. BYO is a big plus and overall we enjoyed the evening.

Fantastic time with family at Bistro 54. Great variety on the menu and the service was excellent. Highly recommend the lamb shank. Super tender and flavorful. My niece had the beef pie and raves about it. The chef/owner stopped by our table to say hello and answer questions... a very nice touch. Another plus, they rotate some menu items every month or so. We’ll be back!

Come here often, next visit will be our 10th. Would love to see something nice (discount or free dessert or something) for loyal and regularly returning customers! Value for money is always a little high but food is always really good and service is too. Would love to see more dessert options though on the menu...they seem to have decreased down to only 3 each new menu month but given it’s a nicer restaurant, there should definitely be more dessert options on there! They are always very tasty so more options would only be a good thing for the restaurant!!

Lovely little restaurant set amongst books so you feel like you are having dinner in someone's lounge room. Lovely, good value food and good service. Able to BYO also which was a big plus for us.

The waiter appeared stressed, he forgot to bring our drinks, bought wrong food to table, mixed up orders etc, but remained calm and pleasant. Dinning area a bit crowded, the two waiters kept tripping over my chair.

My second time at Bistro 54 and I plan on going back. They change the menu monthly but if there is a particular dish you like you can request it for next time. It is the quality of fine dining without being OTT, the meals are generous and you can feel relaxed. Plus it is quiet enough to have a proper conversation. My kind of place!

Excellent value and service and wonderful food. The moderate noise level made conversation possible. May I suggest the top noise level you suggest, "energetic" is only desirable if you are out with people you do not want to talk to?

We've had other very positive experiences at Bistro 54, but on this occasion, the service was so slow, that we actually thought about walking out. There was no explanation given to us. It might be a while before we venture back.
