Bistro Guillaume - Crown Melbourne
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.
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.
High expectations, however, very expensive, average food which left us wondering about all of the great reviews we dad about this restaurant before choosing to dine there - highly overrated and underwhelming - we would not recommend this restaurant.
Didn’t live up to expectations or price level.
Service was great though.
Been here countless times since it opened almost a decade ago.
Even through management changes it's always remained extremely consistent and continues to exceed expectations!
We love the menu,love the wines and adore spending many a Sunday afternoon here,by the walkway.
All tens from us! Shane & Gisel
Service was really bad very slow food was overpriced
Outstanding service and food.
We enjoy the food and service
Menu is now heavily seafood, Parfait has been deleted form the menu & the one special main they had they had run out of. Duck confit was ordinary - lacked flavour. Lemon tart saved the night.
Wine list extensive but over-priced.
We have eaten there many times before and this time was very disappointing.
I keep going back to Bistro Guillaume. Time and time again. This being Melbourne, there are plenty of places that try to tempt me away. And sometimes I do try elsewhere. And then come back. It is always good in every respect. It is exquisitely French and Professional in very sense. It is also one of the few restaurants I know that have lovely wines by the carafe so that red and white drinkers can be saved the "by the glass or bottle" debate if you're having different plates. Try it once, but be careful: you will want to go back.
Unfortunately our experience was not complimentary. Upon arrival we were asked by 4 staff directly after each other were we ready to order. The restaurant was not fully occupied and we were seated directly next to a table with another couple. The issue was due to only 3 other tables being occupied we could hear everything at the table. This distracted from our special evening. The venue had other available seating which we were not offered. The food was average at best. Disappointed!
The service was perfect
Perfect service quality food and fair value for money
Whilst service was great, the food was way overpriced.
Excellent cheese selection though.
The experience was pleasant but did not blow me away. Won't be fussed to return anytime soon.
Every time we dine here the food is excellent quality and the service friendly and knowledgeable
Excellent food excellent service. Highly recommend
Loved everything about it. However missed desert as there was no soufflé or crepe Suzette which would have finished the evening off perfectly
I used to be a regular at Bistro Guillaume. I have been away for a couple of years and returned to disappointment. The portions are considerably smaller and the quality of the food is just not the same. I asked for my steak on the medium side of medium rare and it came out so rare it wasn't warm in the middle. It was not a busy night. The drinks list is outrageously over-priced. $13.50 for sparkling water and $30.00 for a 'nice' glass of wine.
Disappoint only a relatively small menu and i was looking forward to the souffle only to be told it is not ready yet. No explanations but if i could wait 20minutes it may be ready. We had already been in the restaurant 30mins at this stage
This ruined the night for me but the chateaubriand was beautiful
All in a good piece of meat high price so so service and a lax chef.
Delicious food, expertly cooked
Amazing french inspired Menu and impeccable service.
Right on the Yarra River.
The atmosphere was great and the staff were helpful but not too 'in your face', just as attentive as they needed to be without interrupting. Desserts were out of this world!!
Appetizer ( French onion soup) and dessert (profiteroles) were good but main meals were well below expectation. Confit of duck was a plate of tasteless broad beans with a small over cooked duck drumstick. Swordfish was bland.
Staff were good and listened to our feedback about the main courses.
Over rated, food was just above cafe level, service was ok but nothing exceptional. Very overpriced.
A true French bistro in Melbourne. Wonderful food, excellent and very friendly service and a great setting beside the river
delicious food and excellent service. reasonable price
Probably the best Chateaubriand ever, in a great al fresco atmosphere.
I love Guillaume and eat there frequently. It is real French brasserie food, wine and service. There are always specials worth trying and their wine list has some very good "by the glass" selections. The food here really is very good - and is significantly better than many equivalents in France. Wild claim? No, I have just come back from living there for many years.
the champagne lunch is a fabulous deal - lovely staff, great food.
Menu and food was really good staff was very pleasant.Great atmosphere. Desert Was amazing ,Lemon tart is a must to try!
