This venue never disappoints...
Great set up, friendly & professional service, awesome cocktails that are reasonably priced...
Jimmy was an amazing waiter aswell
Impressive hidden bar inventive cocktails served with amazing flair.
My fiancé and I travelled from Sydney to celebrate our engagement at Eau De Vie. From the moment we were greeted at the door the service was exceptional. They offered us a complimentary drink to say congrats and explained he cocktail list to us. We had a bar seat which was very theatrical. The share plates and cold meats and cheese were delicious and came out in stages so that we could enjoy our evening. We booked about 5 days in advance and glad we did as it got quite busy. Would definitely dine here again, the cocktail and extensive drink list adds to the theatre of the restaurant. Could not recommend enough! A must try in Melbourne!
Made the effort to make a reservation just to get there and be seated at the bar. Was so squished and uncomfortable- totally ruined the experience.
Always wonderful here! Love everything about Eau de Vie
Amazing scotch menu, unfortunately wasn’t fully stocked.
Cocktails were amazing and the presentation was great!
We had a new staff member serving us, who either had been through an awesome training program or was a lover scotches! As he was able to advise which scotches were similar to the ones they were out of!
Definitely go back!!
This review forced us to give a review on food, however we didn’t order any and it wasn’t applicable!
A great little hidden spot in the middle of Melbourne. This speakeasy, signless And locates only using your illuminating loving, is filled with eclectic and exciting cocktails and the theatre to match. The showmanship of some of the cocktails is some of the best I have ever seen. The food menu is equally strong and refreshing with much bigger portions than you would expect in such a bar.
The staff were all friendly, helpful, if not a little lax, but on the whole faultless. Eua De Vie makes you feel like Al Capone and with such an incredible array of cocktails on offer, short to tall, decedent to vegetal everyone can feel like a gangster in here!
Always an amazing experience, so if you want to impress - this is definitely one of Melbourne's experience highlights.
The food and cocktail range was brilliant. Not that many options for vegetarians but the quality of the two meals that were friendly were insanely good. There is nothing more satisfying than dipping into an entire baked camembert with a big piece if bread. The eggplant chips were also delightful.
The cocktails were, as my partner decsribed it “unfair”. Unfair in the sense of how spectacularly good they are. Absolutely superb. The atmosphere was delightful, jazzy and fun. All together a fantastic evening with fantastic food and drink.
Gorgeous place..my favorite bar in the world ! Fabulous evening.my 3rd visit . I’ll visit here every time I come to Melbourne
Cocktails - outstanding; food - delicious; service - impeccable; ambiance - magic.
No words can explain how much I do love this place
We booked a table for dinner and were squished onto the bar and my partner didn’t even have space for a plate in front of him. Other people who hadn’t booked got seated in better places. We kept getting knocked about as bar staff tried to get past us to deliver drinks. Asked to be moved but the just made other people next to us squish up to give us a little more space. Pretty disappointing as it was my partners birthday which I mentioned in booking. Just not enjoyable for eating experience.
Really cool spot and the food is always great. This time I sat at the bar (despite booking a table) and it wasn’t the same as sitting at a table or booth.
Made a reservation and got to sit at the bar and see all the magic happen! James and Phoenix helped us. They were both really knowledgeable, friendly, entertaining, and we enjoyed our time at the bar. Would reccommend Cleopatra’s Secret my favorite cocktail of the night! Will definitely be coming back.
Sensational experience at Eau de Vie again. Love the ambience, staff are knowledgeable and always friendly and offer exceptional service. This time, we sat at the bar and loved seeing our creations made in front of us and enjoying banter with the staff.
So glad I came across this hidden gem. Enjoyed an array of tapas all equally delicious. Finished off with some cheeses which were amazing. The cocktail punch bowl was a fun surprise. The chaps had fun selecting whisky with the very knowledgeable waiter. Can’t wait to return to sample more of the great food and drinks in a funky atmosphere.
Wonderful as always, a unique experience completely unparalleled by any other cocktail bar so far. 10/10 can’t wait to return !
The food was amazing and waiters were approachable. Had the best time there and we will definitely visit again :)
We had a reservation but we got stuck at the bar. And yet those that just walked in, got proper seats, tables and alcoves. We wanted to settle in and drink and order the chefs menu. We still ordered the chefs menu but our experience was hindered hugely by being stuck on the bar with no elbow room and constantly being hit from the bar table behind us. I get it’s prohibition era, and so supposed to be squeezed in. But surely reservation should get tables. We were pretty much ignored for 25 minutes after being seated before someone took a drink order, then it took me asking the glassy to
get an order for some food.
After that a different bartender took over looking after us and the experience increased hugely. He was great, timely, charismatic and made amazing cocktails. The only upside to being sat at the bar was being able to see the cocktails being made in all their glory.
I recommend it if you can get a booth or table or just want cocktails. The cocktails are second to none.
Overall a good night out, but not a great one like we had at boilermakers the night before. Who took a reservation for us and sat us at a table even though it was only a party of two.
Fun, creative, delicious cocktails and share plates. Everything was presented beautifully by welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable staff. We had a fantastic evening. Highly recommend!
The chefs menu was really great value. Lots of food just kept coming and it was all delicious! Definitely returning again.
I booked in advance for a special occasion. I was not told I would given the furthest corner of the bar seating where we had to wave to get served. The person walking us in was not even concerned about it when I mentioned it. If I knew I wasn't getting a table, I'd had cancelled and found a better place. Great whisky, disappointing doorman manners. What a shame!
A hidden gem. Everything about this place is wow. Vibrant atmosphere. Unbelievable list of drink options. Food is great too. But it’s the service that’s the standout.
Perfect as always
Impeccable service, detectable cocktails, vibing tunes, what else could you possibly ask for?
Have been many times and is my favorite bar in Melbourne... Food is fantastic too!
We were given free champagne when we told them what we were celebrating. Such amazing service and attitude from all the staff.
Amazing Cocktails! Staff were so nice, service was 10/10. Had a very enjoyable evening.
Great cocktails, food and service with a lively atmosphere. I would visit again if I can fine the hidden door again!
Staff extremely helpful with a huge coctail list to choose from.
Fabulous venue with great theatrical cocktails. Finger food was delicious. Service was a little on the slow side.
Great experience and ambiance. Fills up quickly. Make sure you book.
Booked a table and had ended up being seated in the corner with other people. Took ages for our drink order to be take as the waiter said he forgot about us. Around half of the food menu was unavailable, it was also really uncomfortable that the waiter sat at our table to take our order. Stayed for one drink which was excellent, before leaving. A massive shame because the Eau de Vie in Sydney is excellent. Very disappointed, won't be returning.
FANTASTICO. Service was superb. Food was amazing. Band could have played for longer segments. But overall my friend who had landed that morning from Singapore to celebrate her bday was happy. I will definitely go back with another group.
Great vibe and atmosphere. The booth is a must for a date. Cozy and very romantic.
The service was shocking.
We were reminded over and over again that we would only be allowed 90 minutes for our reservation. Fine. Its a Friday night and they are concerned about turn-over (more customers = more dollars). Ok. What I have a problem with, however, is that although I was willing to abide by their 90 minute limit, I had to wait almost 35 minutes to order. That's 35 minutes of my precious 90 minutes wasted waiting for 1 cocktail.
So, instead of squeezing every dollar they could out of me during that 90minutes (which I was willing to spend on date night, and they're obviously willing to take due to their 90 minute schedule) I left after only 1 cocktail, too conscious of the time.
Great night, loved the whiskey with matched cheese tasting.
Love this place and their amazing cocktails. The service is outstanding. The only down side is you only get your spot for 1.5 hours and we really wanted to stay and have more cocktails.
Service was very friendly but a bit slow. Drinks a couple of dollars more than you’d expect. Too noisy for anything more than superficial conversation.
