Bistro Guillaume - Crown Melbourne
Thought it would be run of the mill but was surprised how good the standard was. Would happily visit again or recommend.
Excellent food and good service, but we missed a little bit the spirit of a typical bistro
Absolutely marvellous raw sea bream,caviar and grape special.
The food was superb & service was faultless - we had a beautifil meal from amazing oysters, snapper tartare & melt in your mouth skate - looking forward to going back when next in Melbourne
Loved the interior. The menu was short and simple. Which I quite like.
I loved their Gnocchi, absolutely delicious. Their famous Bannockburn Chicken was very tender, but too bland for me...
Btw, we found a hair on the bread plate, the girl apologised and offered us with new one. (we didn't take it)
Now with the service, The tall French gentleman (sommelier?) was not very friendly or helpful.
However those girls makes it up for whatever sommelier lacks.
We enjoyed a very pleasant few hours here at lunch for our anniversary. Choose the Menu Express 3 course lunch for $45 each. The meals were well presented and delicious and the staff very hospitable, attentive but unobtrusive. We have been to this restaurant several times and the quality of service and food is always consistently good.
Worse customer service I had in a long time
Lack of customer service
Lack of communication between floor staffs and kitchen
Waitresses don’t pay to details
Forgetfulness of the waitress to miss a few of the orders
Definitely More staff training needed ...
Iast night dinner was a let down for me and my family in a long time ... as we do return to bistro a few times in a year . It has always been a pleasant one but I guess that was our final time there due to the unhappy experience last nigh
Booked in for the bottomless Moët lunch . Everything about this restaurant was just perfect!! Definitely one of the best restaurants I’ve been too . The ambiance , the service and the food were all amazing!! The service alone would definitely bring me back , it was impeccable. The food was cooked to perfection and the presentation was unbelievable.
I definitely can’t wait to return !!!
Lovely little french restaurant. Nice food and nice outdoor seating area.
The two and three course express menu was good value. Would have liked the baguette slightly softer. The gnocci was the best I've ever eaten, would go there again just for that. A bit pricey but good for a special celebration.
I love this restaurant and go there for special occasions. Took my sister there last night and was dissapointed with the service .Waited a long time for food people at the table served in such a disjointed manner limited to no service never experienced this before.People who came after us served first food when it came felt rushed .
Waited a long time for our attendant to take and serve our drinks order, then waited another while to take food order (had to actually flag the attendant), then had to wait for entree, mains, dessert which took even longer. Food quality was average and not worth the 'premium' tag as advertised by Crown. Attendant was very friendly and lovely but did not make up for the fact that I was expecting a minimum 4 star experience but felt more like a casual dining restaurant. Would not recommend.
Fish slightly overdone, tough! And waited 40 minutes to get the bill. Had to go up and ask for the bill up at the main desk! Entree was lovely but main was a let down! Value for money I would rate 2.5 out of 5
Lovely food, good service & great ambiance.
We had a wonderful meal. Very authentic with lovely wait staff who were helpful and considerate.
We had dinner at the restaurant for the first time and found the level of service excellent and the food promptly delivered and tasty. We will be back.
Food as good as usual. Menu as good as usual. Service team senior staff may need to be reminded that self importance doesn't work as well in Melbourne as in Paris. Happy to explain more in a conversation with the restaurant.
We enjoyed our lunch at Guillaume’s Bistro, the food was delicious and the lunchtime express menu was great value! The atmosphere is very comfortable and the staff are very efficient and pleasant to talk to. I’m Gluten Free and the menu was easily adapted to to suit. The only issue we thought was, it was a little noisy at times, not sure if that can be adjusted, but we will be back!
We had the lunch special, which is great value. However, my husband had the steak and he was underwhelmed and said it was a bit chewy. I had the barramundi, which was delicious, as was the side of broccolini
Forgot dishes and took 2 hours for 'express lunch.' Noted it was a birthday but no mention from waiters or staff.
Authentic French food
Food was delicious, service was great and attentive.
Consistently great food and a lively "French" atmosphere.
I have dined here on numerous occasions, unfortunately this time I was so disappointed with my meal.
I had the Darling Downs Grain Fed Rump Cap, it was so chewy. I left most on my plate as well as the bits I had to spit out.
I would have thought the staff would have said something, guess sometimes its best not ask if you know you wont like the answer.
Bistro G never fails to satisfy with an amazing Menu, great Service and wonderful Yarra River views.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion!
thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining and wine experience.
Fantastic service, great food and great wine list. We really enjoyed our night there.
The restaurant was extremely overpriced for the type of food served. $45 for entree seafood soup with a glass of wine sounded great, however five pieces of fish, 3 centimetre in size ordinary in taste was unpleasant surprise. The stake served with French fries in fine dinning was like a meal you get in a Bistro. The Dory was dry and $400 later for 4 people could have paid for a year of food at the local pub. :(
Never fails to delight!
We couldn’t fault our meal - everything was absolutely delicious!
A nice French Bistro for special occasions
Excellent Service with decent food.
Good food, staff ok as it got busier the service dropped
Steak tartare was a great well balanced combination - the potato crisps didn't add to the dish.
The leg on the half Bannockburn chicken managed a slight watery quality of the meat close to the bone but the breast was perfect; what was exceptional was the Paris mash and tarragon jus.
The green salad and dressing was really well done.
The John Dory was a little dry and lacked flavour, so the caper and raisin vinaigrette were necessary to compensate; raw cauliflower slivers did not enhance things.
The food was a good as it always has been. And the waiting staff were generally very good. We had an 8pm booking and I feel we were a little "rushed" by staff towards the end of our meal. Desserts came out within a couple of minutes of ordering. No tea,coffee or dessert wine offered. Staff were busy setting up tables for the next day. We were the last patrons there and left at 10.30pm.
Service was slow, food was expensive for what was served, menu was limited and my lamb was fatty, had to ask for drinks and bread, lovely staff though
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.
