Absolutely kicking ourselves for not going here earlier! We have been locals for almost 3 years and have always walked past and said 'we should go there sometime' - with First Table it helped us finally give it a go, and we loved it!!! We had the Oysters, Salmon Tartare, Beef Tartare & the Mussels. Not a single bad thing to say about the joint, absolutely everything was on point and we can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.

Flawless from beginning to end. The scallops and escargots divine. The pork from the 1970s classics menu delicious and subtle in its honey and orange flavours. The steak frites cooked to perfection. Save room for dessert - the creme brulée an absolute must!

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.

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.
