    All the food was amazing, with the steak tartare and creme brulee being absolute standouts. We struggled to choose what to order because the whole menu looked so good. We went on a Saturday night at the 8.30 pm seating, the restaurant was busy, but the service was great, we didn't feel rushed. We will definitely be returning to try the other options on the menu (although I will definitely be having the creme brulee again!)

    Excellent food - the French onion soup was divine and so was the gruyere cheese crouton! We enjoyed our mains (chicken and duck and red wine pie) but it was a shame the rice was undercooked. Great service and food otherwise, it's always a pleasure dining here.

    We came for my mum’s birthday and street appeal, you don’t think much... and then you walk inside! Atmosphere was beautiful! So French, decadent, bold and yet understated. Our servers were brilliant! When looking at reviews, we read about them and they made the evening what it was! Knowledgable, present but not hovering! Perfect. The steak tartare was a must have! As was the parfait for entree and the duck pie was rich and flavourful! A truly wonderful evening and would definately return! Merci beaucoup Claire’s! C’etait merveilleux!

    Excellent service and beautifully presented and delicious food. It was an enjoyable evening. Only negative would be that serving sizes are a little on the small side for the price you pay.

    The food is always outstanding, the steak tartare is a standout for me. The professional yet warm service is what always has us coming back for more. 5 star service without the uptight attitude.

    The most consistently good restaurant in Sydney. Friendly, efficient service supporting well-delivered French classics. Good selection of French wines at all price points. Always a pleasure to bring the experience to friends who have never been.

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
