Noir has a double frontage in busy Swan Street near busy Church Street and I am close to being local but I have never noticed it before. My mistake. We had a lovely meal. We had the degustation menu with no meat but a fish substitution for the main course. It was good to leave ourselves in the hands of... More

We organised the tasting menu for a party with a group of eight. The main course of beef with cauliflower was a highlight. The service was good and we enjoyed the wine, including a wonderful Alsace riesling. It really was a very enjoyable meal and a great night out for a special occasion with good friends.

This chic French Restaurant ticks all the boxes for me. The service is excellent and well paced for a degustation menu. The serves are generous and very creative. Who'd have thought Murray Cod could be so good. Definitely go degustation. As an extra test I asked for an oyster and a martini. Two ultimate tests of any French Restaurant. The... More

We booked online before going there. We brought friends with us as well . Unfortunately, the manager told us they did not notice the booking, which means we had to go and hunted for another place after 830pm and we did actually booked a restaurant. They should have made a notice online that they are booked out. Nowadays many people... More

Hi Joy, Your dining companion booked the wrong date online accidentally. We did explain to him what had happened but he quickly became irate and stormed out, obviously he was too embarrassed to tell you he'd made a mistake. I'm sorry we didn't have room to accomodate you on the evening, I assure you we care very much about our... More

Such a pleasure to dine at Noir. Interesting food, particularly with the degustation, nice wine selection and informative service. Our visit here was a very enjoyable experience, which we hope to repeat soon.

10 people on a Saturday night before Christmas - with a time limit and we arrived late. They didn't blink, managed to get orders and feed us in an unhurried, respectful manner. And the food was great - try the gnocchi. Good brad wine list too.

Managed a late booking at Noir in Richmond. Fabulous food, service and atmosphere and highly recommend. We shared the prawn bisque and tuna nicoise as starters and both were fabulous. We then shared the lamb and beef mains with the lamb an absolute stand out. Comes medium rare but we asked for both to be closer to medium and were... More

Quality was of fine dining and presentation was very good. Service was good but took over 30 minutes to get desert served - probably because restaurants filled after... More

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...
