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.

The ambiance was great, as was the service. Friendly, right amount of care and efficiency. The wine (the cheapest rose on the menu) was awesome. Ordering a gin tonic I was shocked they serve this with Schweppes tonic......affreux! Food wise....we started with oysters, can’t go wrong there, fresh, tasty and simply yum, following the oysters we ordered the bone marrow, which was served with horseradish, greenery and toast. It was....overpoweringly salty unfortunately, not a raging success and a shame of the bone marrow, the animal died in vain for this one. Closing the meal train we took the steak tartare to task. The meat was clearly good quality, the spices and seasoning just right. The letdown was the (home made?) crisps, again overly salty and as such spoiling the overall objective of the dish. The steak tartare would live a better faith if served simply with thin slices of sourdough or baguette.
Having said all that, we had a great evening, not in the least because the wait and bar staff do seem to care.....Would would I go back....yes, in a heartbeat, these minor transgressions, I am sure can be corrected with some friendly requests.

It was with some trepidation that my husband & I climbed the rather grungy stairs for our booking at French Saloon. Knowing that Ian Curley was part of the management helped us to continue. We entered the restaurant & were greeted by friendly & professional staff. When we read the menu & wine list we knew Ian Curley was still flying. The food was superb & the choice of wine was outstanding. We both had the fish of the day & then indulged in wonderful desserts. We will return & recommend to friends. Patricia

Well the location is cool and the food was great but this is the best I can say. This is definitely not a cheap restaurant yet I have had far better service in suburban diners! We may as well have been invisible, any time we wanted anything including a wine top up from our ordered bottle which was not left on our table we spent ages trying to attract any attention - result - meal long finished and half a bottle of wine un-drunk and no longer wanted. All in all a very poor and extremely expensive night out.

Food quality superb, service exceptional and floor plan is beautiful. Would not hesitate to recommend. Maybe the only very small negative is the noise level accentuated by the rustic floor boards. They look awesome however...

Had the tasting menu for two. Wines didn't really match the courses and the meals were VERY protein rich.
Service was very impersonal and lacking.

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.
