Never fails to deliver. Good wine. Simple, good food and plenty of outdoor space to sit
Cant be too cimplimentary about this place. The food was exceptional. The service was incredible. And the ambience is authentic. We loved it. And will be back.
Was a really lovely evening. Food was delicious and the service was brilliant.
Excellent ambiance, great food - perfect casual date spot.
As a long time fan of this delightful wine shop, It’s always a great pleasure to dine at the bar and take in the congenial atmosphere. Then there is the wine. Then there are the hosts who know about what they are serving. Makes for an exemplary experience. Great coffee too. Highly recommended.
Love the wine shop one of my favourite places to catch up with friends and enjoy great wine
Staff could not have made us feel any more welcome. Perfect night!
A delicious meal was enjoyed seated in the European. All elements of the meal, including a wine recommendation, were perfect, though desert was foregone!
Amazing food, great wine, awesome vibe. Enjoy pretty much everything
The food was delicious, service exceptional and wine selection great. Would absolutely come here again - just perfect.
City Wine Shop always incredible and never misses a beat
Seated at The European. Great atmosphere, wine, food and service.
Amazing service as always, friendly and very knowledgeable staff!
It really is a wonderful place, friendly and professional. I had the chicken schnitzel, a standard but superb as always. It's sophisticated without being exclusive, and very very Melbourne.
Very happy! We ended up on one of the outside tables. All was perfect. A very nice way to celebrate Melbourne opening up again. Thank you :)
A renowned favourite that is operating "just like it always was".
Absolute pleasure dining at city wine shop, as always! Food was served quickly, with reliable and friendly service and wine recommendations. Thank you for being covid-safe as well!
First dine in after lockdown and this place totally impressed me. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Food was delicious and wines were perfect. Definitely would go again. Highly recommend for sitting at the bar.
The City Wine Shop is an iconic Melbourne restaurant. The ambience is lovely and the food is consistently very good. It is is an ideal spot directly across from Parliament House which makes dining outside a picturesque and enjoyable thing to do. A fantastic wine selection which can be enjoyed per glass or per bottle. VERY good desserts!
Our Opentable reservation had been confirmed but our booking did not integrate with the City Wine Shop reservation system. Luckily we showed the app to staff and they were very quick to try and accommodate us. Thumbs up for quick thinking and service
My favourite food and drinks destination. The best
Great service, great vibe, great wine 🍷 Will come back soon.
I have been to City Wine Shop many times. The quality of the food was poor. The prosciutto and bresaola plate tasted like it had been in the fridge for weeks. The negronis tasted watered down, no doubt due to the melted ice used. The service was very poor. Staff seemed to have no idea about the menu and did not come to refill glasses.
Quintessential wine bar. Great food, friendly service with a great wine list (obviously).
It was great being able to dine out again after the long lockdown. Our server Simon was great! It was also his first day at work... Very approachable and friendly. Food was good overall. We had the ribeye steak which was very tasty however it was overcook.It was medium well instead of medium rare which is really a shame. Wine selection is always great as ever 😊
Everything was amazing! The steak was the winner for me 😍
A great day was had. Staff very friendly and food and wine brilliant
It’s my local and I’m so lucky it is. We love long lunches while people watching, quick wine catch-ups with friends and quick midweek dinners - really there is no better way to spend a sunny afternoon. Wine staff are knowledgeable and the food is always perfection. Just go.
Nice tender steak with fries. Always a consistent standard of meal. Excellent choice of wines. Coffee good. Staff very attentive.
Fabulous atmosphere up there on Spring St.
Fresh produce served with a smile and a witticism.
Great place for a long lunch.
Loved the food, the wine, the service and the vibe - was great not being crowded! Highly recommend, some nice take away wines also.
We had a superb dinner for two, with all the trimmings. Highly recommended!
The City Wine Shop is an institution! It’s one of the most delightful places to sit in Melbourne and their food and wine offering is always a favourite!
Very knowledgeable on wine, prompt and efficient service, lovely staff, delicious food and safe hygiene practices. Would come back.
An absolute favourite. City Wine shop never disappoints. Amazing wine, food and ambience.
Brilliant food. Incredible wines avaliable. Never a bad choice!
They're not the cheapest wines around. But they are all high quality. Isn't that what you really want anyway!? 😊
The staff are very attentive and friendly. Try nab the little spot directly out front. It's the best. 👌
Delicious food and fabulous wine. Cosy atmosphere and excellent friendly staff.
Lovely to visit again
