We had an 8p booking and entered a busy dining room. We were left to sit a long while before someone came by and we could ask for a wine menu. Service was a bit slow throughout the evening.

The soufflé was by far the best part of the meal. The pork was thick and slightly undercooked plus was served without a serrated knife making cutting difficult.

Overall the experience did not meet our expectations. I’m sorry to say that it will take a big change to bring us back.

It was a quiet night, not so busy. Highly recommended for a casual & relax dinner night, with some good food.

Always consistently excellent. The service is professional and exemplary, and the food is always worthy of the highest accolades it repeatedly earns. And extremely well priced compared to other similar venues.

Lovely food, wine and service. It's a shame that happy hour customers hung around and were very disruptive, almost spoiling our evening.

The meal was on my birthday which was the day we arrived in Sydney for a week holiday. I had the entree of chicken liver parfait. That night I came down with Campylabacta Jjuni. This I feel could have only been caused by this food.
Completely ruined my holiday.

A delightful venue for 'Let's Do Lunch'. We enjoyed our birthday celebration in a room that evoke a real French bistro feeling.
Thank you. Will be back.

Food was average. Ceasar salad overdressed with gloppy dressing, not true Ceasar. Escargot bland, not enough cheese. Service was inattentive.

This was our third visit to Bistro Guillame and we were disappointed with the menu this time. The bavette steak had a distinct taste that the waiter didn’t mention when we asked and was much too rare (ordered medium). Also such a shame the petit four trolley no longer exists.

The restaurant is very nice but a little difficult to locate as it is located inside a building.
The food is very good at surprisingly reasonable prices.

Fantastic food, I had the lunch 3 course and the chicken ballotine and meringue are both stunning and with great flavor. My favorite part is the presentation of the meringue, it was so fancy and very breathe taking.

The food was great
The servings were generous
The setting and ambience was great
The only let down was the maitre d’ and his lack of enthusiasm for life and all its surroundings, it really left a sour taste in your mouth and was the only really thing I could fault

Enjoyed the food. Fine ingredients, good preparation and generous servings. Interesting wine list. Friendly and efficient service. A bit of light live music may lift the ambience to a notch higher.

My wife and I had dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we really enjoyed the place, the personal, and the food. The food is served in quantity.
I recommended the place to some good friends and family.

I was very disappointed in the food. The terrine had almost no flavour and it sat on a bed of the hottest mustard I've tasted. The liver parfait was extremely rich. My daughter'd crab pasta was "goodish". My cheese soufflé needed more flavour and the creme caramel was very overcooked.
Our waiter also clearly did not want to be at work.
As i said disappointing.

A return visit for Our 48th wedding anniversary did not disappoint, the service was friendly and unobtrusive. We shared a dozen Sydney rock oysters, they were crisp with a beautiful clean taste, the minerality matched the Alsace Riesling perfectly. The moules were a perfect sized serve and the pork chop with almonds was moist and tender. The mixed leaf salad had a more radicchio than greens, and that was the only down side as we aren’t radicchio fans. The desserts of passion fruit soufflé and mixed sorbets were a perfect ending to a beautiful lunch. We appreciated the celebratory message on the soufflé plate, thank you.

A wonderful place for a celebration dinner. The meals are classic French and executed with exquisite care and enough creative flare to lift them above the predictable. The passionfruit souffle was the clear standout dish for us - very memorable.
One quibble. We didn't want to drink a lot so we ordered wine by the glass - a glass of white each followed by a special glass of celebratory champagne each. Half way through the champagne the waiter swooped in and quickly topped up the glasses before we could object. This was annoying because made it difficult to track how much we were drinking. Just as annoyingly, we were charged extra (quite a lot!) for the extra wine that we hadn't ordered. Waiters should ALWAYS ask first before topping up, especially if the restaurant is charging for it. It encourages responsible drinking and avoids nasty surprises when the bill arrives.

Always been happy with the food and the service is attentive. Really enjoy the spaciousness of the restaurant that makes it ideal for mor private conversations with clients. Second time there that a client odered a Bloody Mary only to be told that out of tomato juice. A restaurant/bar of this quality should do better than that.

The food was fresh and you can tell that it is made in house. The portion size was generous and would most likely share especially after the entree souffle.
The passionfruit souffle was quite tart and would have liked a sweet contrast.
Although we were forgotten about at some point, it was nice to soak in the atmosphere and have a laid back dinner.
