Food was excellent - Spanner crab entree was a stand out!
Service was amazing as well - Tim & Nina took care of us :)
Love the food Josh and the team prepared. The Duck special was amazing!
Loved everything about this restaurant. Went for a family birthday dinner and there was something special for everyone. Big hit was the 800g rib eye that was perfectly presented and delicious. Will definitely be returning.
An awesome spot to hang out all day and enjoy snacks and cocktails!
The place is a stunner and we will be back often!
Very cool and beautiful place with delicious food, cocktail and service. Highly recomment the crumpets and the whole fish dish.
Always enjoy Poodle, I would recommend to anyone wanting to treat themselves to a nice and classy night out.
Love everything about a Poodle Bistro! Amazing food, service and amazing space. Such fantastic attention to detail. Can’t wait to get back!
Perfect range of food with just the right amount of choice. The staff are are also incredibly friendly.
Husband and I loved our meal at Poodle. Was all delicious and the staff were amazing too.
Look forward to next visit!
Wonderful meal at Poodle. We loved the crumpets with crab and the prawn potato salad. EVERYTHING was delish! Such a beautiful fit out too! x
Ordered two mains and three entres and all cam at once so some food went cold. Music didnt suit the venue and was terrible in taste, felt cheap in taste. We felt rushed by staff to order both drinks and food and staff took the oyster plate off our table while we were both holding oysters in our hands to eat leaving us with no where to dispose our shells.
beautiful fit out, nice ambience for sunday lunch
Very happy with our meal at this venue. Loved the overall ambience and the music playlist was fun and lively. Staff were great!
thought the set menu was delicious and quite good value for money with premium ingredients like roe and crab throughout. what a good looking venue with great staff and fun music... we will be back 10/10
Great overall experience at Poodle. We thought the dark hearts were wonderful and the prawn salad reminded me of just how good horse radish is! Staff were very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Great music playlist too!
Lovely restaurant with a WONDERFUL VIBE! French inspired food with a creative edge.
The set menu was amazing! 6 very happy eaters
Wonderful experience!! We loved the tasting menu. Lots of creative dishes and the service was warm and efficient! Will be back soon.
Second time here. Sat upstairs this time. Amazing service, food and ambience. Upstairs is stunning!
Pretty apparent as to why the design of this place has been so highly lauded... Food is great though what really deserves special mention here is that the staff are excellent!
have been almost too many times now haha. love it more each time. dinner was so great
Bravo Poodle. Excellent experience across the board! Those little crab crumpets...oh my!
Food was tasteless and everything covered in too much butter & cream. Perhaps we ordered badly.
Fabulous venue - food was tasty, service was quick and friendly and atmosphere was stylish but comfortable. Most enjoyable occasion at Poodle Bar and Bistro - looking forward to my return.
The place to go when you want the full Melbourne experience - incredible food, attentive and warm service, and a buzzing atmosphere (but still able to hold a conversation). Perfect night out
The service was outstanding, and eating vegetarian, the food was incredible - the Fennel Gratin, and the pickled radishes were stand-outs, as well as the Wet Poodle.
The atmosphere was lively and energetic, and we loved the selection of music.
Excellent experience across the board. Some of the best service we've had in a long time. Great food and bev and wonderful interiors.
WE HAD THE BEST TIME HERE! Food was so delicious and the staff were lovely. Great vibe for my girlfriends birthday. Will be back soon! xx
Love Poodle. Been several times now. A brilliant all-rounder, perfect for an indulgent dinner or bucketload of cocktails in the courtyard.
Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Poodle Bar last night. Great service, gorgeous ambiance and delicious menu especially loved the mushroom fritti and the Parisian gnocchi… another wonderful restaurant in the Fitzroy area, a definite new favourite !
Amazing service, amazing food & drink pairings & excellent ambience.
Been to Poodle a few times now. Everything on the menu is great but my fave would be the crab crumpets, they are divine. Staff are friendly and the place has a great vibe! Will be back very soon.
Amazing venue, incredible service and excellent food all round. One of the best places in town to have a fun night out with friends over a lovely meal. Top, top marks for Poodle and the team!
Excellent experience here for many reasons....
The food and service are not in any way pretentious but both are very high in quality. Extra points for creativity of menu.
Cocktails are excellent and the decor/ambience are too.
Should be a top Melbourne venue for years to come if they keep this up.
Well done to the team!
Chef's menu was terrific value. Lovely selection of dishes. Comfortable warm restaurant.
Lovely outdoor venue and the servers were lovely and helpful!
It was our first time dining here so wasn’t sure what to order so we ordered the Chef’s selection. Food was ok… was expecting more considering it’s the chef’s selection. The best dish was the flounder but was a tad too spicy. The table for two is so tiny in the outdoor area and it was a tall table with uncomfortable seats. Couldn’t wait to get out of there as my back was hurting. Overall not very impressed :(
Great atmosphere, lighting and swift staff. Food is top notch.
Treat your senses to a gorgeous night out. Fabulous meal. Gorgeous wine. Sensational ambiance.
Sweet, knowledgeable, staff.
Get on the Poodle. Now
Seriously Outstanding. The service was very attentive but uncomplicated and unpretentious. The food was substantial and delicious. The interior and atmosphere is absolutely beautiful and intimate but relaxed. 10/10 from start to finish.
