    Always loved Chez Olivier when it was back on Greville street. The food and service is still amazing at its new venue, but unfortunately the atmosphere is quite sterile and lacking. Something needs to happen with the atmosphere to make it warm, cosy or fine dining. Currently it feels sterile like an office environment.

    First time we visited Chez Olivier at their new location on Toorak Rd. The quality of the food was perfect and the service warm and welcome. The new place has a more modern touch but it still has the right flair. Go for the Creme Brulee as desert, you won't regret it :)

    Providing there was Corona restriction atmosphere was excellent only disappointment was duck was a little too dry, other than that all other foods were great.

    Really good food- prawns in Pernod were excellent. Good choice of dishes and wines etc. Overall very impressed. Only slight criticism is the height of the bench seats upstairs in the restaurant. My girlfriend is about 5’4” and she felt like she was sitting quite low down but otherwise it was great. Definitely won’t stop us going again! Will take a booster cushion for her next time.

    The restaurant has been revamped at the new location which has a nice ambience to it. However we felt the taste and quality of the dishes was not the same as before.

    Snails great , Steak pretty good, and great service as per normal. Cheese missing that great blue, but pretty good overall. Was busy for a Tuesday night, so you have to book.

    The food was great. It was beautifully presented. The wine list was high quality and the staff were very attentive. Chez Oliver has always been one of my favourite restaurants and the new premises are great.

    The food at Chez Olivier was spectacular as always. We enjoyed our time at the new location and will definitely be returning; however, we hope the service picks up a little more as we felt a little rushed at the end of our evening.

    Superb food complemented by excellent customer service by the waiters made for an outstanding celebration of our wedding anniversary. Chez Olivier has maintained its high standards.

    This is one of our “go-to” local restaurants. Service and food is always great. We have a wine cellar at home and it’s really great we can BYO wine and have some great food and service to go with them. See you again soon!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our meals, it was my birthday and the sparkler on my dessert was very cute. The welcome and all staff were friendly and helpful. Comfortable seating and only one small thing is the noise level, sometimes hard to hear each other. We will be back though.

    Out of my expectation, the taste of food was not excellent but average. One of their waitresses was little impatient while the other was super friendly and warm-hearted.

About the restaurant

Can’t go wrong!

Whether you feel like a crisp, light lunch in the dining area, or a fully-fledged and committed degustation with the end result of sinking into a large lounge afterwards, you can enjoy the ambience that is Chez Olivier. It is one of the loveliest French restaurants in town. Here you will find traditional dishes such as escargot– snails cooked in garlic – or a beautiful goats’ cheese salad. But whilst they use traditional French recipes, they also like to use exclusively Australian ingredients and in a style that is their own interpretation of what it is to be Australian. Here the sophisticated and caring staff urge you to thoroughly read the menu and take your time in ordering. And you will not be disappointed when the food arrives. Pop in for one of their well-loved Duck and Pinot nights on a Wednesday, or even speak with them about having your next work or social event here under the guidance of their function staff. Their wine list is smart, their staff even smarter and the food is of the very highest quality.

Best Dish: Boeuf Bourgignon
