You could call us your local "steak frites" joint.
We are very proud to cook our steaks exclusively over charcoal something new to the area.
Located in the CBD area of Wollongong our exclusive residence has been fitted out with comfort and luxury as a priority.
Amazing food, what flavour! Can't wait to go back soon.
Food portions extremely small & greatly overpriced. However, the service was excellent & the noise level was minimal.
I am not sure which to compliment the most. The service with a smile, even though they wore masks, the delicious food, the atmosphere, so I will compliment all aspects of Debutante. Thank you for a fabulous night.
Amazing! Definitely recommend dining here. Steaks are amazing, as are the oysters
Food was delicious very tasty.
Simple however top
Quality I would definitely recommend the venue.
An overall very good first time experience. Food and service were excellent. Waiting times were good. However, wines were somewhat expensive per glass considering the amount given.
The food was delicious and fresh and served in a timely manner.
Excellent food and service but it is very expensive
Disappointing . Staff lacked knowledge and did not seem to be be able to keep up with customer numbers. Food was very uninspiring for the prices charged. relatively noisy and we felt like we were in a bistro, not a fine dining restaurant.
Will definitely return. Our waitress was excellent. A bit loud and would probably like a bit more than just salad with the steak but in saying that the steak, prawns and dessert were delicious.
We do miss the attentiveness of Siobhan, but the restaurant was busy and we understand. Food outstanding as ever. This was the first time we'd tried the steak! To die for. Thank you as ever! We will be back of course!
Our favourite restaurant. Incredible food & impeccable service. Highly recommend to all our friends and family.
Food was very delicious... we got the mash with the steak and it was so moorish! Would definitely recommend
The cocktails and the food, everything is delicious! All of the staff are very attentive and knowledgeable. It’s a lovely place!
The food was incredible, the service was fast and friendly.
The staff were lovely and informative.
Great fine dining experience. Food and service were top shelf
Really enjoyed our experience. The food was exceptional
The food was amazing as always. Highly recommend the steak frites with peppercorn and cognac cream.
The ratings speak for themselves. Service very poor and inexperienced. Slow kitchen, food good but nothing extraordinary. Wine selection good. Tables too close together having regard to current restrictions.
Meat was cooked to perfection. Really enjoyed our night out at this restaurant.
Absolutely outstanding as always. Debutant never disappoints
Our group had a lovely meal, every dish served was delicious.
Staff were very friendly, attentive and conscious to keep us to the timeframe due to the booking timeslot being 2hrs.
We will return for sure
Quiet, well finished interior with well spaced tables.
Outstanding service, delicious food and an overall exceptional experience.
Looking forward to more variation in the menu and repeat experiences!
The most amazing food!! Order the cheese soufflé 🤤
Made welcome the moment we stepped in. My wife, son and I entered and immediately looked after. We had a booking for 4 and my other son was still in transit from Canberra but the ladies went out of their to look after us until he arrived. Very happy with the whole experience. We will recommend to our family and friends to seriously consider Débutant for an outing.
Quite good. Disappointed by some of the sides like the potato bread - $5 for a very small piece of bread served room temperature with hard butter (which the waitress forgot to give us until 10 minutes after we got the bread. Obviously a little on the pricier side, but the dry aged beef was definitely worth it. Ambience was lovely
Mixed opinions on our experience. $5 for a bread roll would be ok if the roll was stand out. Both the roll and the butter were very average. Had the prawns for entree - prawns over cooked. That said the sauce was very nice. Finger bowl would of been a thoughtful touch given how messy to shell them. Rib eye steak was good, though expensive. Can buy equivalent quality steaks for same or less in Sydney restaurants. French salad was just ok. Too much dressing. Not a WOW factor and when spending over $250 for 2 people you’d be hoping for that. The Pouill-Fume was excellent.
Should add another option to below question - maybe recommend.
The food was up to my expectations. I am a French national and knew what to expect at a bistro in terms of food. The service was fast and efficient. I will definitely go back there.
Flawless service and the best steak in Wollongong!!
We travel (sydney & Melbourne when you can!) & eat out a lot
Debutant is our favourite every chance we get we will make a detour (dejour)
Great energy and vibe, young friendly staff delivering a great experience to the diner.
I was the guy when walking in seeing the awesome meat cabinet said to the young welcomer “fancy meeting you here! “ got a laugh and I knew then and there we would have a good night and we did.
Loved it Peter & Lisa
Great night, lovely staff and of course great great food 😊😋😎
Excellent food and wait staff were friendly and efficient
Amazing dining experience! Catered to our diverse group of dietary requirements without a fuss in any way, completely open to making options that were perfect for us. Not only were they made available but the chefs did a crazy job of it too. Table service and atmosphere was great too!
French bistro collides with a modern Australian steak house ... hmmmm ... not so much! Australian steakhouse with a very ordinary take on french bistro style cuisine (boarding on insulting the french!), where the service doesn’t quite meet the price point. Very disappointing experience. All 8 diners found the steaks over cooked, the salad extremely pungent and extremely slow to get both entrees and mains out. Best part of the experience was the wine.
Had a wonderful meal
Service and food impeccable
Great place to celebrate something very specia, as prices are a little on the high side. But so worth it !!!
Fabulous food, a delicious dining experience, great service, can’t wait to go back again
Steak was beautiful but our waitress wasn’t a lot of help in our choice of accompaniments or wine, which could have been better. In general, the service was not good.
Entrees and main were superb. Service was personalised. Only issue was the fries. They let the package down in appearance and flavour. What a whinger I am. Would go back in a flash 😊🍷
Food was really well cooked and the atmosphere was very nice. A great place for a special occasion.
