There are better options for a French Bistro in the CBD. Especially for what you are charged here. And our table service was laughable: slow and riddled with errors.

We had steak frites and although the quality of steak was OK (although not served very hot), the chips were overcooked and the bearnaise sauce was more of a mayonnaise consistency. At nearly $50 for each dish, this felt like not enough care was taken. The service was excellent, although the backing music seemed inappropriate for the ambiance. I have previously eaten here and the food was exceptional, but based on this experience, it is difficult to recommend the restaurant.

This is the fourth time I have dined, and have loved it every time. Chef was in the house which was amazing to see as well. The food was beautiful, we left very satisfied and I can’t wait to go again

First time at Bistro Guillaume and we all loved it. Great food, great drinks — every dish that walked by us that we hadn’t ordered we had FOMO about. Will definitely return!

Delicious food, poor service.

I really liked this restaurant, but the service was not very good. The waiter was not friendly and quite inattentive. It was like he was imitating what he thinks a French waiter would be like, but in reality French waiters are quite friendly. Also, he kept saying "Finito" to ask us if we were finished. I'm not sure if he realizes that's Italian and not French...

I recommend this restaurant for the food, but don't expect much for service.

The food/atmosphere was great, however the guests waiting 50 mins to order their food. Understanding it's a busy time of year, 50 mins seems extremely long to order, especially if the lunch period is only 2 hours.

Steak tartare is just perfect. As always with Guillaume, flavours are just absolutely perfect.

Steak tartare, chicken liver pate, confit of duck were good. My pork loin chop was a bit dry and IMO overdone. On two occasions our waiter brought the wrong dish to our table.

Excellent lunch venue with delicious food and great selection of wine. Perfect place for a meal with family, friends or business colleagues. We felt extremely well looked after and the service was relaxed and unobtrusive.

6 friends enjoyed dinner at Bistro Guillaume on a Saturday evening. This was a special outing to wind up the year and we expected to pay more than at the usual local "cheap and cheerful" restaurants.

The service was excellent, efficient without being obtrusive. Entrees were generous although quite expensive. All 6 of us enjoyed our main meals...steak, ocean trout, barramundi, chicken and duck, all served with interesting accompaniments, and we added broccolini and cauliflower sides.

The passionfruit souffle dessert is highly recommended !

As a fan of Guillaume Brahimi I was so looking forward to dining at Bistro Guillaume. I was not disappointed. The waitstaff were brilliant, my meal was absolutely scrumptious & my beer was perfectly chilled. Well done to you all.

The food was amazing. However, when I booked a table I made a note that we have anniversary. Haven’t received anything (as I know, usually you write down “happy anniversary” on a dessert plate). Also, the service was just ok. No one smiled or asked how was our experience. When we were leaving no one cared as well (didn’t say goodbye or anything else)

Food and table service were very good but tables are small and they are placed too close together. I made a booking but the guy at the reception could not find it straight away, he had no greeting, no smile or apology which gives a very bad first impression. Not finding a booking straight away would be acceptable if he addressed me by name with a smile and a quick apology.

We had an 8p booking and entered a busy dining room. We were left to sit a long while before someone came by and we could ask for a wine menu. Service was a bit slow throughout the evening.

The soufflé was by far the best part of the meal. The pork was thick and slightly undercooked plus was served without a serrated knife making cutting difficult.

Overall the experience did not meet our expectations. I’m sorry to say that it will take a big change to bring us back.

Lovely food, wine and service. It's a shame that happy hour customers hung around and were very disruptive, almost spoiling our evening.
