This was our first time to France Soir and it will not be our last. From the wait staff to the owner to the food, and the incredible wine list - this is a totally authentic experience, with a perfect steak frites that will keep us coming back. Loved it!

This was a recommended restaurant to us. Positive- food is reasonable and wine list very extensive. To me it was let down by being somewhat noisey and cramped. Staff also did not appear particularly attentive. These are subjective observations for clearly the restaurant was very popular.

Last night,together with two friends,I had dinner at France Soir.Great food especially the scallops and lamb shanks.Service is very attentive and welcoming.Wine list is excellent but don't forget the BYO option(except for Saturday night).Great venue to bring interstate guests to show what the Melbourne food scene has to offer.

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to eat en route to the Spanish Film Festival and France Soir caught our eye from the footpath. We had spent a week in Paris a year ago and the thought of a finding a good French restaurant in Melbourne was appealing. We weren't disappointed. First of all, the staff appeared to be French, which lent the place an air of authenticity. Also the menu was similar to what we had experienced in France. But what really impressed us was the food - every bit as good as a Parisian bistro. The boeuf bourguignon was especially impressive, as were the frites. We will definitely be making a return visit - we may even become regulars!

We enjoyed an excellent dinner for our wedding anniversary. The menu is very extensive and includes many French classics. The wine is not in a list, but in a book! The quality of the food was very good and each course was cooked to perfection. The choice of wine allowed us to try some French wine by the glass. Prices were a little high, but worth it for our occasion. The only downside to our visit was a table of four who screamed at each other all night (they made more noise than everyone else combined). Perhaps the staff could have tried to quieten them down. Overall, this is a restaurant that is well worth the visit.
