My wife took me to Noir for lunch on Sunday and what an experience. We both had the A$55 Degustation meal - wonderful variety of delicious treats - steak tartare, roast duck, Waldorf salad, beans and baby greens, coffin bay osters in a champagne granita and salted cod croquettes followed by a chocolate and pistachio brownie, with a great Medoc...

The four of us visited Noir for a Sunday lunch and had the $55 special. The food was fantastic with so much flavour packed into every aspect of our lunch. Our favourite was the duck but only just. The raspberry sorbet with the brownie for dessert was delicious as well. Presentation is amazing and the service spot on. Great wine... More

We booked Noir's function space for our wedding reception in August. We had 30 guests, and we ordered the banquet menu and beverage package. From the minute my husband and I arrived at the reception, all we heard was "have you tried this food?" From our guests. Simply, it was outstanding. Highlights included confit duck with cumin spiced cauliflower, roast... More

We, two, attended the fixed price, fixed menu Sunday lunch in late September 2016. Three different starters, all delightful but oyster with champagne granita was outstanding. Steak tartare, good. Jerusalem Artichoke salad was lovely (particularly as I don't usually like Jerusalem artichokes !! ) Duck superb and comes with delicious arrangement of vegetables and salad. Loved the cauliflower. Finally dessert.... More

We went as a family for Father's Day which included one baby which they were very accomodating for. The food and wine was excellent and the dessert too was very tasty. If you want a fine dining experience in Richmond this is the place to go.

My boyfriend has been taking me to fabulous Melbourne restaurants but our experience here rates as the best so far. Perhaps it's just that there is nothing better than fine French cuisine and that's certainly what this is. Every mouthful was delectable, with beautiful presentation and flavors from starters to desert. Dishes we had included oysters, hand made ravioli, steak... More

The food was really good, delicious and everything I was hoping for. A seat in the window, however was a little too drafty. Service was good.

This unassuming but sensational French inspired restaurant in Swan Street Richmond (10 mins from CBD) served up the most delicious 4-5 course Sunday lunch for our very impressed foodie family. Highlights included truffled polenta chips, steak tartare, hand made gnocchi with mushrooms and chestnut purée and the most magnificently cooked duck confit. Fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere- very Melbourne.... More

We went four of us for a beaf tartar lunch. The frame is very nice and the waiter is very nice, helpfull and watchfull. In the plate, very nice showing but the food was too salty. The taste was spoiled by the salt... Also quite expensive.
