I selected this restaurant for a family occasion. Although I've never been there before, I chose it on the strength of the overwhelmingly positive reviews. Perhaps the restaurant went through some ownership change or they just have a lot of friends, but based on my...experience, I just can't imagine how anybody can homestly think it's an Excellent, or even a Good restaurant. Service staff seemed to be disinterested, unmotivated or in other cases enthusiastic and well-meaning but not competent. Certainly they had not much understanding of the dishes or the drinks. Service was haphazard, with some things coming out quickly, others with much delay. The wine we ordered at the beginning came out way later, by the time we were well into our meals. Salad came out by the time we just about finished our main courses. The soup came out without a spoon, we had to ask for it. Somebody came to take our orders after we already finished our entres. After we already paid and we were getting up to leave, a staff member came and offered to bring the bill. Just a comedy of errors. Another review of this restaurant mentioning Fawlty Towers was right on the mark. There was no genuine French aspect beyond French sounding dishes. The selection on the menu wasn't vast, it all comfortably fitted on one side of one sheet. That would've been alright if dishes on offer were amazing. The ones we had, weren't. There were a few tasty elements but most of what we had was fairly average. My main dish reeked of what I thought may have been disinfectant. I thought it's just me being fussy but I offered some of it to my partner to taste and the response was: "This is terible! Are you sure you want to eat it?" Presentation of the meals were mediocre. So was the ambience with nothing much screaming "French". It also got a bit loud inside, even with reduced density of people (due to COVID restrictions). Some of the above may have been somewhat excusable if it wasn't for the fact that it was all overpriced for what we were getting for about $130 per head. We didn't even bother with desserts, just paid and left. Without going into more disappointing details, it was our first visit and it's going to be our last. There are just much better retaurant options in the wider area, including for French cuisine. Honestly, the good reviews for this restaurant totally baffle me...More

Been to Saveur a few times. A place definitely saved for very special occasions! Try their Escargot, they are to die for. The oysters taste like just shucked from the Hawkesbury. For mains, try their Pan Roasted Barramundi Fillet or their Beef Tournedos Jardiniere. The...restaurant is set in a beautiful old Federation house in the heart of Roseville, two minutes from the railway station. It is fully licensed. Ask for Michael who is the Maitre ‘d and owner. A most obliging and helpful person at all times.More

I recently hosted a family 80th birthday celebration at Saveur and the owner & chef Michael Chun was so helpful and accommodating. The food was beautiful and on par with a fine dining restaurant. The service was friendly and attentive and the venue had a...gorgeous European feel, creating a home dining experience. I would definitely recommend Saveur for either a small booking or a larger gathering. I will be back again!!More

An exceptional dining experience at end of lockdown. The staff went out of their way to make our dinner date memorable. Food is excellent and worth the price. The Burrata was to die for. The escargot and the garlic bread were a good pair. Also...Love the Hot chocolate liqueur ☕. The gentle atmosphere makes us feel like we left the big city behind. The outdoor dining experience was reminiscent of Europe. We will be back to try the lobster 🦞 ravioli and the beef tenderloin.More

It was our anniversary and we had take-away dinner from Saveur. We delighted in delicious, very garlicky and very fresh prawns and superb lobster with garlic butter. The lobster was cut in easy to eat pieces and presented with some greens. The chips that we...had on the side were perfectly done. For desert, the crepes were oh so sweet and delightful and a perfect match for the Affogato with Fra Angelico which we love and the restaurant prepared on request. We relaxed at home and had some great champagne with the meal - lockdown can be very enjoyable.More

It hasn't been since last Christmas that we visited with Michael and his team at the lovely Saveur Restaurant. We only wish we could drop in more often. The menu is lovely; the service is top notch (just the right attentiveness); the food is absolutely...outstanding - flavours and presentation just great. And, the amotsphere in the dining room is ever so appealing and comfortable. Saveur continues to push the bar higher and higher. It's worth a lengthy trip to get there - and take the train so you can enjoy an extra glass or two!More

We chose Saveur because it was local and the menu had both fish (for me) and meat options (for my husband). Booking was really easy online. We arrived a little early for our booking for were made to feel welcome and given an option of...tables (we chose the one by the open fire-it was very romantic)! The interior is beautifully designed and the tables well spaced out so as to not make the rooms feel cramped. The menu was impressive as was the choice of wines and other drinks. Every course was an absolute delight! Portion sizes were perfect and we managed all 3 courses (a rarity). Above everything else, the service was exceptional; the staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. This was our first 'date night' night in a while and we already can't wait to go back!More
