    It was a full house on Mother's Day but the team were ready to go. We arrived late, I called to advise and they were great. The service was immediate, all staff knew the specials of the day, drinks arrived immediately, menus immediately, orders taken in a timely manner and food appeared pronto. The food was superb, not one thing to complain about. Ample but just right servings. It was just a beautiful dining experience. Considering it was a full house, the staff and timings were impeccable as was the food.

    Cosy intimate and classy French restaurant bistro style. Very good range of dishes but not overly lengthy means one ca be confident that every dish has been well researched planned and executed. Sommelier happy to discuss and recommend the best wine food match for each course. Both front of house staff competent quick to respond to any requests. Music warm yet unobtrusive. Price very reasonable (although not 'cheap eats' by any stretch, its was very good value for money! Highly recommended

    It was very busy on a Tuesday night and the tables were tightly packed. But the service was good from friendly French staff, the menu provided a wide choice of French classics along with some quite innovative dishes and the byo wine was handled professionally.

    Want to feel like you're in Paris? Then treat yourself to a delicious dining experience at Paris Go Bistro. There are superb classics on the menu, including a sensational French Onion Soup, which my husband has every time we visit, as well as Boeuf Bourguignon and Filet Bearnaise. One of my favourites is the goat's cheese filled ravioli in a creamy basil sauce, but there are always magnificent specials of fish, meat and chicken dishes to choose from, as well as vegetarian options. The frites are perfectly crispy and desserts difficult to resist. Paris Go Bistro has a lovely, cosy ambiance and the service is impeccable. There is an extensive wine and cocktail list, but BYO is also available at a modest charge. Do yourself a favour and take yourself to this delightful little gem in the heart of Carlton...you will not regret it!!

    Food pleasant enough but not really French. The menue is far too long and without obvious design. The sauces taste out of a bottle which is not bad, just not what one might expect. Too much seems to come out of a freezer especially the deserts where the pancake was tough and the profiteroles a bit leathery. However a pleasant enough meal apart from the desert. The terrine was especially nice but one suspected bought in. But don't be put off. As I said a pleasant enough meal and certainly popular and going for many years.

Helpful suggestions and explanations about the menu as well as the French reds were offered. Excellent food and wine. A very enjoyable evening.

    My partner and I booked a table for dinner to celebrate her birthday. The greeting on our arrival at the restaurant was off-hand; our table for 2 at the rear of the dining room was next to the door to the toilets and under a mirror which held a fascination for some of the staff. We were not asked why a number of our dishes were cleared from the table obviously untouched, but were asked for a tip on presentation of the check!!!!!!!

    We went with two friends, we all thought that we were going to a restaurant that we had never been to before, however we had all been to The Bullfrog many years ago. The food and service were very good as was the ambience and we had a lovely quiet table into the bargain.

    The dining experience was balanced in every way.It was a perfect balance of cultural feel for French food experience, the friendliness of the staff and the class of food!The chicken in wine sauce dish on special was Perfection. Crepe and Fig Pudding? YES PLEASE! Most of all, for vision impairment, requested a nice corner spot and was given the Table for 2 by the window, which was great because Main floor was a bit noisier. Nevertheless,we had a really great night! MERCI BIEN!

    Not very happy. Arrived on time for our reservation and there was no one at front of house to receive us. After waiting 5-10mins we called out to the kitchen for service. We didn't last long once seated as one of our party began to react to a strong smell of cigarette smoke so we had to leave. Seemed like a good menu but unfortunately didn't have a chance to try any dishes.

    Lovely restaurant , ideal for small groups. Menu has a very good selection of traditional French dishes and other European flavoured cuisine. Vibrant atmosphere with friendly staff. Good that it is also BYO. Only problem is parking's a nightmare in Carlton on a Saturday night.
