Eau De Vie Melbourne
too hyped, terrible food, booked a table was seated at the bar, can't say this was anything special at all
Cocktails are amazing and love the theatre of how they are served... service was exceptionally slow throughout the 90min we were there.
Waited slightly longer than expected for our cocktails after we ordered. Same with our meat and cheese board. Understandable as they were busy. However, ambiance and atmosphere distracted us slightly from this wait time. Overall great experience and will be visiting again soon.
Lovely bartender and amazing Whiskey tasting platter. You have to try the Espresso Zabaione!!!
Amazing range of whiskey. I tried rhy, Irish and Scotish Isle varieties to see what I had been missing out on.
Amazing, service, cocktails and food, was the best night we had in Melbourne, if your are ever in Melbourne this is the place to go.....
The drinks are amazing! The food beside the drink is great!
Booked about three to four weeks in advance for two - it was our four year anniversary and EDV was very well represented in Sydney.
Upon arrival we were seated at the bar, at the far end, lodged against a wall and told us ‘I have a booking for 8 so you will have it until then’ - almost as if we were walk-ins.
We spent most of the hour and a half we were there trying to get the attention of the bar staff - disappointing experience that marred what was meant to be a special occasion.
Value and quality was brilliant.
As always, excellent service with delicious meals, share platters could larger but unrivalled in taste, knowledgeable waiters and unsurpassed collection of cocktails and spirits.
Lovely waiter, was great that she called us to the bar to watching my cocktail being made.
Enjoyed the food, fun menu.
Great service and awesome menu! A definite must for any visitor to Melbourne.
Over the last 12 months since living in Melbourne, l have taken 15 plus people to Eau de Vie. Always had a good time and great experience.
However, on Friday a drink was spilt over me by a member of staff. An accident yes, but the customer service following the incident was not great.
They removed the drinks we hadn't yet been served from the bill, and thought that was acceptable. Finally after speaking to a manager's manager they agreed to remove the round of drinks that we had had, however this should have been an immediate reaction. I left very upset with the whole of the left side of my dress drenched and stinking of alcohol. Offering a customer a few paper towels and a glass of soda water for them to mop themselves up is not recompense. A manager should have been made immediately aware and should have said "this round is on us" and an offer to cover the dry cleaning of the dress (this l did get after escalating to the first manager).
In contrast, on Saturday at another venue with 5 friends, 1 drink was left off the order. They apologised and immediately got the drink and on delivery said to my friend "this one is on us". I'll definitely be going back there.
I have always loved Eau de Vie, but this experience has left me hesitant to go back.
Never disappoints. The best cocktails, and cocktail making theatre, in all if Melbourne. Grazie EDV. Another fabulous nigh!
Great venue, difficult to find without any signage, excellent presentation of food and drinks, great atmosphere, just a bit noisy at times; pricey but worthwhile 😊
The best place to visit for a special occasion. The service and overall experience is top class.
This place is great! The staff are knowledgeable and gave excellent recommendations to suit our tastes.
Try and get a spot at the bar so that you can watch the different types of drinks being made. Entertaining and great way to make your date or friend feel fancy.
Huge variety of cocktail selection
We had a fabulous time celebrating our anniversary it was a perfect venue to start off our evening. thank you for helping us make it a very special night
I rang and booked for a surprise birthday reservation. The lady on the phone said that they would organise something, (with candles). The waiter said it to me at the door. We got many food plates and drinks and nothing was said or done. When said to the waiting staff they were very rude and dismissive.
Go here. Delish. Fun. Fab staff. Great cocktails. Superb ambience.
Nice place, nice drinks and great service just need to fix the snack menu.
Absolutely first class. Cocktails were next level. Food was amazing as was the service. Highly recommended, will definitely be back.
Great place. Good atmosphere. Definitely recommend. Cocktails were splendid.
Only criticism was service was a little slow. Food was excellent. However, the degustation wasn’t available for reasons which weren’t entirely clear, what we did get came out intermittently and wasn’t enough - with minimal guidance provided by the waiters.
Overall definitely recommend for a drink and a snack, but on our experiences not dinner.
Terrific barman/waiter that helped us navigate some of the cocktails and whiskys. Excellent service and terrific drinks. Very unique ambiance. We’ll be back for sure
Amazing table service and cocktail suggestions were perfect. Would highly recommend for something special!
The waiters are amazing, they make you fee special from the moment you walk in the door. The mood lighting is perfect and the cocktail range is fantastic and fun and surprisingly affordable :)
Amazing cocktails and presentation, definitely come back again and highly recommended 👍
Awesome as always! Great staff, food and cocktails.
I love Eau De Vie, the cocktails are amazing and staff are so lovely. Whenever we head into the city for dinner we always have cocktails at Eau De Vie to start the night. Highly recommend.
Love this place however the level of service isn’t what it use to be.
Service is spectacular, presentation is wonderful and very cool.
Amazing!! Make a reservation or else you have to wait in the queue.
Took at least 45 mins to get first drink and over an hour for food. Drinks and food were nice though, once they finally arrived
Nostalgic decor. Delicious whisky cocktails. Will be back.
The venue has a great buzz. I love that you can make a booking. The food was delicious but very small serves for the price. Our first waitress was excellent - bubbly personality and very welcoming. The second waitress was rude and made us feel as if we were inconveniencing her.
Awesome skills and the taste of each cocktail is amazing!!!
Always a fabulous start to an evening. Cocktails were delicious and served in really fun ways, service is great and if Luxury speakeasy is a thing they’ve nailed it!
We loved the cocktails we had here. Stupendous service from the moment we walked in the establishment. If you're a speakeasy lover than this is a great spot for you. Intimate, not easy to find.lol, and great drinks. The cocktail menu had a variety of drinks to choose from. The theme of the menu was very original and one-of-a-kind.Could visit this place again and again.
Just a quick catch up/drink
As usual Eau De Vie was a great experience, the vibes is awesome and the drinks are amazing. I look forward to the next time!
