    What a wonderful evening! We were there on Saturday night so got to choose from the set menu and there were quite a few things we could have ordered ! We started with scallops and an onion soup and finished with chateaubriand served with mash and green beans. No room for dessert but as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, they brought out a plate with macarons and sparklers! The food was excellent and the service exceptional! Highly recommend Clare’s Kitchen for an intimate French feast!

    Never ever disappoints! Excellent value - food is reliably delicious, service perfect and a lovely ambience (just enough background music, and soft furnishings to make it easy to talk).

    Claire with Flare! After a trip to Europe I was craving French food. This is the perfect place if you want fresh, creative French cuisine AND cocktails with flare (literally - mine was served with a mist of absinthe, flambé). The set menu has plenty of options including desserts to die for. The ambience is gorgeous: cabaret style decor with a twist (and an actual cabaret room upstairs). I'll back on a cabaret night for sure.

    I’ve always wanted to try Claire’s kitchen and I was not disappointed. The staff couldn’t be more lovely and the food was excellent. I thought the $100 set menu was good value, and I’m looking forward to a return visit to sample more of their delectable menu

    We enjoyed a wonderful night. Great choices on the menu and we all could not have chosen better dishes. Our waiter, Valentine, was very attentive and kept us entertained. This was our second time at Claire’s Kitchen and we will definitely book again.

    Staff were superb and all the dishes terrific. The souffle was utterly perfect. We have worked our way through the menu and each one is special. The risotto was also excellent and different from others.

    I love Claire's - the staff are just divine, the food is just fabulous - be warned however, the servings are not small! - and the room is a magical mix of cozy and utterly glamorous. The absolute best place for dinner with friends who you adore. Or even just for dropping in for a negroni and souffle par toi-même.

    Amazing food, amazing service and amazing ambiance! Can’t ask for more! The cheese soufflé and beef tartare was an absolute stand out. The escargot was fun novelty and the lamb rack was succulent. The duck pie was a tad sweet but still moreish!

    This wonderful restaurant located at the Paris end of Oxford Street, never fails to impress. Their attention to detail in both food and service is exemplary and likely the reason the restaurant recently celebrated 10 years. It's our go to place for French cuisine.

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
