We get together with a group of friends annually at France Soir. We take our own wine and pay corckage we have been going for over twenty years and it never fails to deliver. Every time I go I have the crumbed lamb's brains and if it is on the menu rabbit. This time the rabbit was cooked in a... More

We have been to France soir many times over many many years. Walking through it's doors transports you to France. Everything is super French from the decor to its service and most importantly the food. Delicious French bistro style food with a menu that has stayed the same over 20 years with a changing myriad of specials to keep things... More

We arrived late for our booking, our table was still held. We did have to book two weeks in advance. Quick run through of the specials, minus the prices, you need to ask. I ordered the special crab entree, it was a white crab sausage, all crab with a little seafood sauce, just delicious, my friend ordered the gravlax, always... More

Whilst the food and ambience were great I will never return for the rude service of Jacques. He may have been there forever years but it doesn't give him the right to swear at customers using the worst language.

While a French restaurant was not the first choice, France Soir was highly recommended by a business associate. We were not disappointed- our group of 4 each had a different entree - lamb, beef, scallops and oysters and everyone truly enjoyed their meal. The staff was great.

First time @ France Soir - A Tuesday night with the place packed. The atmosphere was good with the restaurant having a reasonably wide selection and excellent wine list. Service was brisk/efficient. I found the food to be of good quality - The highlighting being the hanger steak (rare).

Food was fantastic, scallops for entire, fillet of beef was cooked perfect then cream brûlée for dessert. Overall enjoyable dinner but for $175 for 2 and that didint include a bottle of wine it was a bit on the pricy side.

We wanted a nice night out and were happy to pay for a good quality dinner. It was our first time at this restaurant and had high expectations. The French champagne that was recommended was beautiful and the wine list was very comprehensive. We were recommended this restaurant by a few friends so decided to go. We shared an escargot...
