    Friendly service and greetings, scallop and steak tartare were fabulous! The duck as a main was great too, ambience was dim and romantic. Food was presentable!

    There was a show upstairs , we ate downstairs, which meant we got to enjoy the music, and were still able to converse. The food was delicious. Duck pie was outstanding. Chocolate mouse was a little on the runny side, but tasted delightful

    Staff were friendly and welcoming. Enjoyed the cheese souffle and scallops very much. The beef was a touch over seasoned to our taste. Look forward to our next visit.

    We really enjoyed Claire's the service is second to none, very welcoming. The food is good but not excellent - I would hope for a bit more French flair - the Soup l'onion was fairly ordinary. Nice restaurant I would recommend to anyone

    Wish bread was warm and soft and cheese souffle wasnt too dark. Snapper fillet was memorable. Thank you.

    Very transitional French restaurant, nice place for a romantic dinner with your partner. Also they have a big room upstairs if you have a large group of friends

    Good food, the service was inconsistent. Other than that, I’ll give it another try for the food.

About the restaurant

Claire’s Kitchen at Le Salon

A star of the kitchen as well as the stage, former TV chef Marc Kuzma (aka Claire de Lune) lets his talents shine at his Darlinghurst venture, Claire’s Kitchen at Le Salon. Step through the doors from Oxford Street, and enter a world of glamour, decadence and French chic. Soaring ceilings, imported wallpapers, glittering chandeliers, white linen, black Louis XV chairs and French antiques will make you feel like you’re world’s away from the chaos of the bustling street outside. Oh oui, nous aimons que….(we love that!). Charming French waiters warmly welcome patrons at Claire’ and the brasserie classics with contemporary touches are done with true French finesse. The double baked three cheese soufflé or blue eye trevalla fillet served with crab bisque and spinach dumpling should be ordered immediately upon arrival and you should seriously consider finishing with something sweet from the dessert trolley followed by a fine French wine or Claire de Lune cocktail in the mezzanine bar. It’s French chic at its best.

Best dish: double baked three cheese soufflé
