Love the European, an absolute favourite for cuisine and experience!
A Melbourne classic! The service and ambience is perfect for a leisurely afternoon wine.
Always a great visit . Great service and advice on wine. Food is fantastic
Come on, is this a trick question? Schnitzel is a legend in its own right, and the spaghetti alla vongole was exemplar. Great wine recommendations as you’d expect.
Still my favourite place in Melbourne.
Consistently the best Italian heritage restaurant in Melbourne.
The ambiance is effortlessly seductive.
And the experience always memorable.
Fabulous spot for a wine, feed and chat. The best chicken schnitzel in Melbourne and lovely staff.
Fantastic dinner and excellent service. My wife has some food allergies and this was noted this from my booking request. The chef actually made something not on the menu specifically which was very much appreciated. Great wine recommendations. Highly recommend and will be back. Thanks for making it a great night.
Staff are always great and caring. food was again outstanding but the two bottles of Rose' for the 4 of us was not up to standard.
A perfect venue for a relaxed catch-up with friends over a lovely meal and a class of vino. The house Shiraz by the glass was excellent.
Sommelier was so helpful to guide me thru line ups
There is nothing bad about City Wine Shop and everything to love. Iconic Melbourne.
Excellent service, top menu, well executed. Best vibe in Melbourne CBD dining scene.
I love that they always have amazing wines by the glass
First sunday lunch since lockdown ended was spent at City wine Shop. Enjoyed great food, generous portions, and an excellent selection of wine.
Usually a lovely ambience, spoiled a little by four men at the next table talking loudly and swearing a lot. Service was excellent, champagne and oysters perfect, the salmon excellent but, sadly, the pepper steak okay a bit grissely in places and the french fries were not quite hot out of the frier. Accompanying wine was excellent.
Best steak in town and beautiful, European ambiance. Dined solo and was given the ideal table to people-watch and read a good book.
NIce place for a date. The decor of the european is a bit old fashioned and needs a bit of a scrub. The food was average but the price not bad. Wine was cheap. I was impressed to get a bottle for 50 dollars. Would go back again.
Excellent service, good, wine and ambience.
Always the best!
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
