Our evening started with the signature french Martini, wow what a treat! The fabulous manager Clive guided us through the evening as we indulged on amazing classic French food. Some of the great plates included french onion souffle, delicious pate, Duck breast cooked to perfection and crepes Suzette and dreamy creame brulee! It was a fantastic evening. Wonderful service, beautiful venue and first class food! A jewel in Potts Point.

We had such a gorgeous night and even with an early table, the restaurant fills up really quickly and so there is a wonderful atmosphere as well as great food and service - and delicious wine.

The restaurant was reasonably busy (about half full), despite us being first table bookings, which was good (this was 6pm on a Sunday night). The waiter was friendly and professional, and the service was non-obtrusive. The main meals were refreshingly large (not tiny nouveau cuisine as I had expected) and the chicken liver parfait appetiser was a real standout. Overall, recommended.

Upon arriving, a table for 3 had not been set up as reserved.Tables were quickly shuffled followed by a gruff "you will need to be out by eight". We felt a little unwelcome. Fortunately as the night progressed the waiter relaxed a little and the the quality of the food made up for the uncomfortable start. The scallops and the lamb were particularly delicious. An enjoyable night.

Entrees and mains were pretty average, and the passionfruit didn't even rise. Won't be back again, especially when parking was a nightmare (1 hour parking everywhere).

We booked at Macleay St Bistro for a reminder of the great times we had out during our Parisian dining experience. I can say that staff delivered that and much more! Outstanding technique combined with freshness of Australian produce, I highly recommend this place to others!

Great menu with both old favorites and a choice of blackboard dishes that are always tempting. This restaurant is celebrating 35 years in business, quite a feat, they must be doing something right - a combination of excellent food and ever attentive service, on this occasion the lovely Stefan made sure we were looked after beautifully

We arrived at Macleay St Bistro at 6pm on a wet Sunday evening. The staff were very welcoming. A great menu with a good selection of specials. We ordered garlic prawns, scallops (unreal) then the crepe and mussels. All were exactly how we had imagined, delicious. We never order dessert but made an exception for the creme brûlée. All in all this experience exceeded our expectations. Staff were lovely, food excellent so we are ‘first table ‘ converted!! Thank you Macleay St Bistro, we will be back.

A little hit and miss, service was good. Steak arrived well done when was order medium. I was prepared to eat it, however waiter insisted they cook a new meal and they did, which was impressive.

I will go back again as the service and atmosphere made up for it as it was a busy night.

Macleay St Bistro is located in Potts Point. It was our first time to this restaurant although I have heard of it over the years.

A delightful small restaurant with a great ambiance. My friends had the mussels and French soufflé which looked great. I had the garlic prawns in a pot which should have been sizzling hot and were not. I have a feeling that this is not the norm for this restaurant.
We had steak as our mains which was large and cooked to our liking.

We had a bottle of wine from their interesting list.

The service from the waiters were excellent and very attentive. I would recommend this place.
