There’s a reason this is one of the best cocktail bars in Sydney. If you’re after a fail safe place for an excellent cocktail this is a go to. Very creative drinks on the menu but also good for a classic
A bit overrated for me... ok for a drink but dont think I'll go back again
Drinks are great. Cheese platter is not that great tho....
Great venue & atmosphere, waiter was very attentive & quirky. Would recommend for a few drinks on a night out
Bar seating should not be an option on reservation at the moment; due to covid you don’t sit at the bar but at a big communal table on stools. Took quite a while to get a drink, they sat on a tray for about 10mins before our server brought them over. Atmosphere was cosy and warm, great decor. Fun, theatrical cocktails were the highlight.
We had a great time. The waiters were fantastic and made the experience special. AMAZING cocktails!
Great place and amazing cocktails - but it was slightly disappointing that we needed to request a booth 4 times before the host did anything about it - plus he seemed very disengaged and didn’t seem to care at all. But that guys serving and making the cocktails were absolute legends!!
Amazing venue, Amazing experience
Thanks so much
Michael and Daniella
Fantastic experience. We just went for drinks which was amazing. The bar staff were really funny too
Great little hidden gem! Fantastic cocktails, good food and great service!
Amazing choice of cocktails and the staff clearly are experts and love their jobs. They will happily point you in the right direction from a huge set of options. At the same time if you just want a bottle of bubbly they will do that as well.
The seating is cosy and you may have to talk to other people. A great, fun, cool night out. The brisket sliders later in the evening were just amazing and really helped prevent a huge hangover....
Spent 30mins trying to grab the waiters attention. Ended up walking out and getting a drink next door instead. We were completely ignored! Not even slightest bit of acknowledgment that someone will be with us soon. Nice bar, good ambience, but let down by really bad service!!!
A great set up here with an inventive approach to cocktails.
Supplementing this was a wonderful little menu.
Only feedback I would give is that we had a wonderful introductory experience with our cocktail connoisseur but then it just dropped off and we had to go searching for service.
I would have enjoyed it more if we were supported to further explore the cocktail menu more.
It was a good experience. Decent value overall. Cheese board was expensive.
Great drink great food great service
Great little hidden away gem in darlinghurst, great feel for w hidden away bar
Very unhelpful policy where you can’t order at the bar or drink standing up. The environment was not fun at all and was actually just very stressful so we just left and went to a dive bar around the corner where we had a fantastic time (drinking while standing even).
Extensive cocktail menu
Great presentation of cocktails
Could only order one drink per person at a time
Wait staff were arrogant
Wait staff spilled cocktail over phone/bag and didn’t really care
No signs outside to say where venue is
Staff member forgot food order
Food was unfortunately quite average
Waiter got angry for using the flash on my phone- ONCE, but then asked me to upload it on Instagram??
Specialty cocktails are awesome and service is amazing!
Great cocktail bar with an amazing atmosphere. The background music was also very cool
Such a lovely hidden little place. Great drinks and food with a fantastic atmosphere...the kind of place you wish not too many people find out about so you can keep it to yourself
Had a amazing atmosphere, exactly what it claims to be. A 1920s inspired bar.
All the waiters/hosts where amazing friendly and knew what they where talking about.
It does get a bit loud but still enjoyable
Great venue for an intimate meal. Can get noisy when full though.
Great spot to kick off the night, or just spend the whole night here... The cocktails are inventive and first class with the staff having excellent knowledge and service.
Great place for a meet up and a dram. Good atmosphere.
I love the theatre of this place. So much more than just having a drink.
Wonderfully trained staff and loved the cocktail theatre.
To drink cocktails at Eau de Vie is like being at a theatrical performance. The waiters greet you with enthusiasm and explain the menu of around 90 drinks. Depending on what you order, may may experience shownanship at your table.
I enjoy the fact that there are interesting cocktails, many whisk(e)ys, and a well informed staff. Being able to sit in the much quieter Whisky room has a special pleasure
Excellent cocktails and service in a cool atmosphere. We went early for pre-dinner drinks, wasn't too busy or noisy. Sit at the bar and watch them make the cocktails in front of you! Very enjoyable, would recommend.
It was such a great time at Eau de vie ! The drinks were spectacular, the vibe was great and the staff couldn't any more attentive!!! I love it!
Never disappoints!!! Excellent place the best cocktails
Joshua the Irish waiter was amazing! He gave great recommendations and made my birthday even better! Thank you!
This is 100% one of the best cocktail bars we’ve been to anywhere in the world. Josh, was an absolutely top class waiter who new the ingredients of every drink and perfectly tailored our cocktails to our taste. Don’t lose him as he’s an exceptional employee who went above and beyond to ensure we had an excellent experience.
TOOOOOOOOO noisy. Could not talk, what's the point?
We were 13 minutes late to arrive for our booking and our space on the lounge had been given away.
Hello and thanks for the review. We always accomodate our bookings the best we can but there are some occasions where this may take a little extra time. I'm sorry to hear everything wasn't as you hoped and we'd love the chance to make things better. If you would like to respond with your booking details via PM we'd be happy to review the areas you felt were not up to scratch.
Great night out. Watching drinks get made is entertainment in itself. Staff friendly and knowledgeable about their products. Highly recommend! You
Thanks Melanie! Was a pleasure hosting you.
As usual the cocktails & atmosphere were fabulous. Very busy night but we were made welcome and received attentive service. We will happily return.
Atmospheric bar scene with an impressive range of cocktails on offer. Some cocktails come with free 'entertainment' as the bar person pours cold liquid nitrogen on top of the cocktail! It is quite dark though and I prefer more light as I communicate using sign language, but that is a small issue that did not affect a terrific night out with friends.
Awesome first date place. These guys should by stock in Tinder
