Too noisy inside for us with our booked table (fairly old and hard of hearing), so kindly helped us re-locate outside with our interstate friends. Food was pretty good and service OK. Thankyou.

Visiting from Sydney we opted to avoid the weekend rush at Gilsons given the poor reviews during peak times. (Despite the 10% surcharge & limited menu options over weekends)
Our off peak breakfast was no better....
Overcooked bland eggs & soggy fritters, sides are small & pricey & coffee bitter.
We had to ask for water and were presented with grubby glasses with lipstick stains!
Perhaps regulars receive better service as we had to either get up or wave staff down - as they were either too busy chatting at length to patrons, amongst themselves or on mobile phones.
When we did eventually manage to get service it felt like an inconvenience which created for a very unpleasant dining experience, staff are disinterested and quite frankly rude.
Only positive, attractive street scope with garden views & close proximity to tennis which we attended after.
Very disappointing & underwhelming food & service by nonchalant staff, we were not even asked upon paying how everything was, a little follow up table service mid meal is appreciated.
With the abundance of exciting & well regarded restaurants Melbourne has to offer, in particular CBD & South Yarra, Gilsons despite location is not worth the $ despite an initially appealing menu, unfortunately they fail to execute.
All smoke and mirrors. Would not return or recommend.

I always love their Carpaccio, and this time I tried the potato gnocchi with salsicha. Gnocchi was amazingly soft and light! I’m coming back for more!

Gilson’s is a great local. It’s not high end fare, simply reliable, tasty food. The service is always friendly. Their pizza’s and pastas are a stand out. The school prawns are fantastic. Love this place.

Great place to catch up with friends. Great food, especially the tortellini and the antipasto was a large serve. The right amount of fancy and casual.

The Gilson was noisy for Sunday brunch, but food was good. However the lunch menu was not available. There was only one toilet which was not great and led to long queues. My son got a shard of glass in his bottom, presumably from a broken glass.

The Pizza was so dry and not enough tomato paste on its dough. Even all toppings was so cold and uncooked.
The Salad was poorly made and not enough dressing. No garnish !
The weekend charge is ridiculous 10% on Saturday plus another charge on my receipt which I felt we were ripped off by the restaurant.
Not happy for the price I paid!

For $22 you get a plate of parsley, about 1/2 a teaspoon of yoghurt and bland, boring and mushy zucchini fritters.. $16 for a tiny bacon and (overcooked) egg sandwich was an absolute waste of money. If you appreciate value and quality, stay clear of Gilson

Great spot for casual/relaxed dining with a wonderful European street-side cafe feel. The host, service, cocktails, food and atmosphere were all excellent. ...I highly recommend Gilson in South Yarra!

We booked Gilsons for my daughters 21st birthday the staff were very helpful and tentative. Food was delicious. I really could not fault the restaurant. They made my daughters night something special for that l thank them. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and most certainly be going back.

The food here is actually amazing. The service how ever was quite terrible. We had made a booking and once we arrived we were seated. Then another waitress came over and rudely asked if we had a booking or not or if we just sat down without one. I tried to order lasagna which is on the menu but was told there is none left. (This was not mentioned when we were handed the menus) also the 3rd time this has happened to me here. We ordered 1 entree to share and that took 40 minutes to come out. The mains that were ordered At the same time took another hour. Was not impressed. The other people around us that got there after us were all done an hour before us. We ordered more drinks which then took another 30 minutes to come. By this point our food was done. I love the venue and the food so it was quite upsetting.

Gilson’s is a very reliable restaurant. From breakfast through to dinner there is always a dish to suit your appetite. And it has been my experience that they are more than happy to make modifications to a dish when requested. The service is quick, polite and friendly. The venue is modern and clean. My only complaint ( and it’s not really) is that it can get a bit noisy.
This local is a winner.

Food and service was fantastic - had seen ‘disco tunes’ from 9pm on the menu however it was extremely quiet for a Friday night and we were handed the bill at before 10pm.
Not the atmosphere I thought it would be.

I love the lowkey, European, dimly lit, quiet and tasteful vibe of Gilson. The food was beautifully cooked, good portion sizes, and just overall unfussy. A new favourite

Review given based on unavailability of menu items and ingredients and incorrect orders being put through. Despite this, service was still good!

The service was the worst part of the night by far. We were given two drinks menus for a table of four people - which were only given to the men at the table. After ordering drinks, we were not given any food menus until we asked for them. The water jug at the table was never replaced, and our dishes all came out at different times. We were never asked if we wanted another drink after finishing our first drinks, and were never asked how we were going throughout the whole night. Although the service was poor, the food was good, however I will not be going back.

The service and ambience was excellent, and despite being on par with any relaxed fine dining establishment, they have a great children’s menu and we were made to feel very welcome, complete with colouring in.

My trout on caponata was exquisite, their wine list and aperitifs a delight, and I will be happily returning.

There was no gluten free bread for 2 of my friends and they weren’t offered a reduction in cost!
A weekend surcharge on Mother’s Day was disappointing.
I had 3 text messages & a phone call about my 8am booking. As the restaurant only had 2 other customers at 8am it created unnecessary entries in my calendar.
Very poor value for money.
After eating breakfast at Gilsons for the past few years before the Mother’s Day Classic, we will go elsewhere next Mother’s Day

Gilson is in a lovely spot, opposite the Royal Botanic Gardens and relatively close to the arts precinct. We had an early concert and the staff were aware of that and things moved speedily. We couldn't linger but we were pleased with the rhythm that got us where we were going in ample time. It was a remarkable mild autumn evening and Gilson added to our enjoyment.

Loved our dinner. We had an early dinner at 6:30pm. Staff were excellent. We shared two entrees and a main. All superb. The main (a pasta dish) we shared, was brought out on two plates. A nice touch! Will definitely come back.

Food quality was very poor given the price point. Polenta chips were exceptionally undercooked and pesto was flavourless and watery.
