Verlassen Sie die Gasse mit ihrem roten Ziegelpflaster und steigen Sie über die schmale Treppe hinauf zum Salon. Dieser Raum ist geräumig, offen und weitläufig - auf der einen Seite befindet sich eine Fensterfront und auf der anderen Seite lockt eine elegante Bar mit einem langen Tresen aus kannelliertem Zink. Der Raum ist das Gegenstück zur perfekt proportionierten, gemütlichen Schönheit seines kleinen Bruders im Erdgeschoss. Stilmäßig ist der French Saloon in der Zeit vom Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zum Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts angesiedelt. Hier vereinen sich die Dekadenz und Familiarität einer Pariser Bistro-Bar mit der Freude an lautstarker Gesellschaft und einer Spur Verschmitztheit. Beginnen Sie mit Champagner und Kaviar an der Bar und lassen Sie sich anschließend Tatar und die eine oder andere Flasche Burgunder schmecken. Für die einen ist es ein Speisesaal, für die anderen eine Bar mit hervorragenden Cocktails und Snacks - vor allem aber ist es ein Ort zum Feiern und Spaß haben.

Our night could not have been better.
Some of the best service we have received in Melbourne. Effortless.
The food was fantastic, wine amazing and finished it off with a lovely whisky.

Have already been recommending this restaurant to friends and colleagues.

I loved my first visit to French Saloon! Food and service were beautiful. We started with the kingfish, which was substantial for an entree and incredibly fresh. We also had the baked Comte gougeres with artichoke. For mains, the two of us shared the duck, which included breast and cassoulet made with slow-cooked duck leg and ham hock. We had the green beans and hand-cut chips on the side, which were the perfect accompaniment. The ambience was dressed up yet it felt casual and low-key. I'll definitely be back!

A great place to experience Melbourne's influence on French cuisine.
The service was brilliant, even provided us information to source some wines we had.
It's always great to see people passionate about what they do.
Well done!

We went for the 4 course chef’s choice for $70 per person. Not only was it delicious, but we got some extra tasters. Fabulous service, knowledgeable wine recommendations. Overall a wonderful night. We will be back soon.

I went there for a business lunch and would definitely go again. I was pleased with the more economical option of a 2 or 3 course menu dejeuner which helped me meet my budget. This was my first time and I loved the space, atmosphere and food. The let downs were the attentiveness of our waiters and the expensive wine list. For instance, it took a while to take our order, we weren't asked whether we had any time constraint (it was obviously a business lunch) which was compounded by the food came out a little slower than expected, waiters were slow to top up our wine and the coffee order at the end took too long with my short black coming out cold (obviously the first coffee made). These are relatively minor issues when the food and vibe are this good. Small improvements to service could certainly elevate this to 5 star.

Lovely restaurant with waitstaff who give you space whilst being attentive at the same time (the best kind). The food was great, with decent portion sizes.

It would be awesome if there was a touch more lighting.

French Saloon will never fail you for a romantic dinner. The service was outstanding, you are truely welcomed to feel like home. Even if you want to change bits and pieces of the set menu, they would always try their best to accomodate you. Every dish tastes so delicious along with good wine, And you will be even more pleased with a very reasonable price. One of my very few favourite restaurants in Melbourne.

We were visiting Melbourne from Sydney and had been recommended to French Saloon. This was a pre-theatre dinner at 5.30pm before seeing part 2 of Harry Potter (Tonka the previous night). The main dining room here is traditional bistro style with timber floors and minimal decoration - the real focus here is on the food and wine. We shared Clyde River oysters with horseradish - not too much to overpower the oysters, but enough to give them a lift - they were plump and fresh. These were followed by a fantastic deconstructed cassoulet - the duck breast was served separately with just a little rich stock, the beans, hock & sausage served as a side dish - fantastic flavours with just a hint of star anise. We were served by Emily who was professional and friendly (is this a Melbourne thing?) and who made some excellent wine suggestions. The dessert menu looked a little uninspiring so we passed on that - but this restaurant will be on top of my list when we next visit Melbourne.

Nothing special and a bottle of the sparkling water was more than $10 which doesn't taste authentic. Make sure you ask the bottle with the cap sealed to be delivered to your table and open it by yourself.

A little gem that’s easy to miss if looking for it from the street. The food was superb - I can’t think of one dish that was a let down - and came with great service too. It’s not your usual tightly packed French bistrô, it’s spacious and not noisy, so easy to have a conversation without having to shout. Fantastic entrees and starters, a small but beautifully prepared set of mains - the roast chicken was beautifully moist and moorish - and you finish with fantastic desserts. The tasting menu for $70 per person is great value, and you get to try quite s few dishes with it, including the lovely petit fours at the end. Make sure to leave some space for the salted caramel madeleine. I recommend the place highly.

We opted for four course and matching wines. Wonderful amount of food, gorgeous interesting wine choices.
A couple of staff appeared quite bored but it was a quiet night.
Great service delivery and efficiency.
I would have liked food to be presented a little slower if on a weekend as each course was presented directly after the one before with no break which is needed for a four course dine.
Overall will be back it was a refreshing, light and modern service of French cuisine and I have already recommended it to others

Lovely atmosphere. Music was at perfect level, suited the restaurant.
Food good.
If you have Steak Frites, make sure you ask how you want it cooked as it comes out Medium/Rare.
(I would have asked for Medium)
Lovely Salad and great Fries.
Service lacked somewhat as we had to get attention of wait-staff on several occasions.
Worth a visit for sure.

Was a bit disappointed with the value, service and noise levels. The steak frites and roquefort sauce was just too strongly flavoured for me, and the $19 glass of pinot noir not that amazing. The waitress didn't suggest to our friends that they should have ordered a side dish. A bit pricey for what it was. I like the layout and style of the restaurant but way too noisy (we were there on a Tuesday night). I havent planned to return or recommend this place unfortunately.
