Bistro Guillaume - Crown Melbourne
Restaurant is really pretty ( very French) which I love
Food was 👌
Very friendly staff
A regular restaurant for us and well deserved. It is always good and this time very good. A new menu - which at first I was a little sceptical about, but upon ordering and both of us trying new dishes - we were both delighted. The addition of venison to the menu was very welcome for Autumn and is absolutely perfect. The welcome, service throughout, wine list both by the glass and bottle and the cooking are all splendid. There are quite a few good restaurants in Crown. This is by far my favourite. Happily, it is also the least pretentious. Go. Soon.
Professional and friendly staff, lovely meal and delightful atmosphere. Encountering an odd gentleman in the ladies bathrooom was unusual, strangely no reaction or apology from staff when it was pointed out, which left a poor impression, especially since bathrooms are upstairs and a little isolated in location. We celebrated a family birthday so the restaurant provides a macaroon with candle, a nice touch, thank you. Balanced menu with choices for most tastes and we would return to try other dishes. I wasn't 100% thrilled but a nice evening.
Food was divine、good waterfront view、great service、nice atmosphere、we have a great time😊
Completely underwhelmed by both the food and the service. Wouldn’t return. Far better opportunities to dine elsewhere.
Food was good, but not worth the price at all.
Blue eye Travea was good but portion was TINY.
Had salmon tartare with avocado and the avocados weren’t ripe at all. And also very expensive for a tiny meal.
Friend has chicken which was tasty and also large in size.
Overall the food is good(not great) but not worth the price at all.
Amazing food, fantastic service, the express menu was an affordable way of tasting delicious food and being able to have such a beautiful dining experience.
Whilst the food was absolutely delicious and the overall decor was lovely, the staff killed the experience for me. They were quite arrogant, snobby, didn't smile and a bit rude which made me feel quite uncomfortable to be there. It was also quite hard to get their attention. Not really in a rush to come back any time soon.
Food was great as per usual and is why I return, however the service was the worst I have had it personally. We had to wait quite a while between being seated, to then waiting for desert to be asked etc.
It did seem busy ish but towards the end waiters were walking right past us and completely ignored us, well it seemed that way.
Food was fantastic just want to reintegrate that, if the food was poor it would have been a very grim night for me and her partner as this is her favourite restaurant and this was for her birthday.
Excellent value for money on food had the two course express lunch. Wine however hugely over priced a bottle of Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc at $85/bottle had the exact same bottle at Meat Wine and Co for $68 the next day. Still over price considering it can be found at 25/bottle at Dan Murphy’s. Always happy to pay a little more for wine in a restaurant but common guys over three times the price!!! No tip from me as a result.
This has been our favourite Melbourne restaurant; however the past two visits have been below par and would now not recommend it. The service has declined; the care and finesse of the food is not what it once was. And the manager on the floor does not show empathy or respect. We have been coming here for 10 years. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here a few years ago...but now, I'm afraid we will try somewhere else. Would love to give feedback direct to Brahimi himself.
Ammy and I had a splendid romantic dinner at Bistro Guillaume. I had been at the restaurant for a work function some years back and had been very impressed. This was our first opportunity to go as a couple and Bistro Guillaume hasn't let anything slide at all. The food was exquisite, the staff could not have been more welcoming or more professional. Great wine, great cocktails, lovely atmosphere. Can't wait to go again.
First time my wife and I have diner here and it was great. The food was delicious and the mood of the place was comfortable and we could chat without feeling like we are being listened to. The service was very good but almost too good. My wife had a glass of wine and didn’t want a second, she was offered another glass several times within two minutes. But the team were very friendly and this is a minor piece of feedback. Nice place.
A desperately disappointing lunch yesterday at BG which was on old favourite for lunch with my sister. Menu has been radically reduced thereby losing one of its real attractions. No duck, no specials, no French Onion soup - how can it be a French bistro without French Onion soup?????, very little in the way of fish, no lamb dish.
Additional concern - waitstaff seemed to be under training and the service was amateurish at best - very haphazard.
menu not very great has gone off from years ago
staff service not great and seemed to have no manager
not serving traditional French
would not be going back
Perfect place to spoil someone with a wonderful meal.
Service is impeccable, whilst it is a French restaurant, there is a great variety on the menu.
Wine choices were excellent.
As usual, great food and excellent service. This is a reliable restaurant and the cheese soufflé is the best in Melbourne.
Food was exceptional! Beautiful restaurant! Service was average, we didn’t feel looked after and had to ask for another glass of wine and some more bread when it should of been offered!
A brilliant restaurant on the bank of the Yarra.
Great food, service and ambience.
Side order came out after the main, and the starter arrived with the main. The side was also so hot, we could not eat it for a while, and the main was dry and lacked taste
Exceptional food and wine.
We always sit outside as we love the ambience
Delicious food and attentive staff. One of my favorite places to eat.
Not a good dining experience
Food bland under seasoned and under sauced
Gnocchi was dry and stodgy
Duck was over cooked and minimal
Desert looked promising but after 2nd course we had low expectations and gave it a miss
Service not great had to ask about dishes even tho menu was in French
We weren’t made aware of the days specials and ordered too much for entree for 3 thus even if the dishes were tasty and we actually ate them would have been too full to enjoy the following courses
Staff were attentive, unfortunately the food was well below average for what one would expect here. Hugely underwhelming, will not be back.
The service from our waiter was exceptional unfortunately there was a hair in my daughters steak. It was taken away and replaced and $7 was taken off the total bill. She wasn’t even offered a complimentary drink as service recovery. The maître D was not interested and arrogant
'so' special but an enjoyable lunch for the 3 of us
Lovely dinner great service
the main course, steak, was very good, the wine list is quite good with some wines reasonably priced
From the moment we walked in I knew we were in for a special night. The staff were extremely attentive and conscientious. Our food was divine and served in a very timely manner. Dessert we shared which was a delightful way to finish our evening ... I must say this place is so much more than just a meal ... it is a dining experience. One which I would happily recommend to anyone looking for a special dinner the ambience was second to none. We just loved it !!!
They no longer have the Charcuterie Board, which makes me sad. The Escargot were so dry that I couldn't eat more than 1. My partner didn't mind, but I would have sent it back. Pea Soup was great, and same with the oysters.
The food was excellent and a good selection however we found some of the male waiters somewhat arrogant and felt our food was not delivered as you would expect which spoilt the experience
We were greatly disappointed..the only things we couldn’t fault were the wine and oysters. We cancelled our mains and still paid almost $200 for a bad taste in our mouths and a poor experience.
The decor is cute and the restaurant looks inviting but unfortunately, from then on, the positives were few and far between.
The food was quite mediocre and prices were exorbitant as our bill was over $300.00 for two entrees,four mains, only one drink each and no desert.
The service was a little slow and not overly friendly or engaging. We won't be returning here again.
If you are planning a special dinner out in Melbourne, give this place a miss.
Thanks to Romeo for his wonderful service !
We were disappointed with the service it took a long time to get our drinks and one of our waiters was dismissive. We would not be recommending the restaurant.
After initial slow service everything was very good.
The food was fantastic! Based on that I would recommend the place, however the service was average. There was no toilet paper in the bathroom and they were messy and me and a friend both ordered the escargot (which was amazing!) But they just have us one portion and when we asked where the second was, they said we were sharing? It was a big portion so I'm not sure if they do.bimed two on to one plate or if they just decided we'd share but it was strange.
Fantastic service and amazing food
The Chateaubriand was beautiful. Done tenderly and to perfection.
