The restaurant was empty due to the COVID-19 situation. Service was attentive but inappropriate. Hot food was dry because it had been in the bain marie or under heat lamps for too long. Not enough variety, poor options and not refreshed due to lack of patrons. Cold & dessert options much better.
Staff did not make any fuss whatsover regarding my birthday celebration.

From the start to the finish the experience was fantastic. We were led to our table and the food explained and offered water and then left to peruse the buffet. Half way through our meal, the waitress ask how we were enjoying ourselves and was warm and polite. All of the staff were very nice. I came for a special occasion and it definitely was a special time. The hot and cold food was delicious and the desserts were spectacular. The cleanliness was immaculate.

We received a warm welcome and intially the waiter was very attentive but it dropped off dramatically. We had to ask for more drinks and the serve of bubbles was quite flat and had to be replaced. The dress code was quite dramatic from track pants to dress pants and mid riff tops to gala dresses

We were absolutely stunned by the quality of the food and the service. We felt so pampered and special to be there. It was the perfect afternoon and we were so incredibly happy we had dined there. We'll be booking again for sure!

Nice view from the window but I’ve had better High Tea elsewhere. Even though it’s a buffet, you won’t have much room after eating the tray and staff come back with refills of the savory items as well. I think this is just wasteful. All but I eaten food gets thrown out. Also the waiter had a hard time understanding I wanted a cold tea as it was hot outside. Took them close to half an hour to actually get me a tea. It’s unlimited during the 2.5 hours but slow service meant I only got 2 teas

Staff service was great, food quality was great.

My only complaint is that when I called up a while ago to ask if there were vegan options - they said yes. When we got there the vegan options were predominantly greens / roast pumpkin & potato.

I don’t think that counts as vegan options at a buffet - paying $100+ for a salad isn’t a meal. If I had of known you didn’t actually cater to vegans I wouldn’t have celebrated my partners birthday here, quite awkward.

HI
I have been to the conservatory many times in the past, but this time around it wasn't as good. the food was a little cold and there didn't seem to be a variety of dishes. Due to the food it was a very poor experience, the staff were really good but the food poor.

Quantity and range of food even though I was a little disappointed that there was no roast beef. Staff were excellent always at hand to accommodate needs. Definitely value for money compared to other buffets we have tried. The inclusion of a glass of wine, coffee and parking makes the lunch very worthwhile. Would certainly recommend.

There is no dairy free, gluten free meal options and no option to request this when booking online.

The lunch menu was not worth $64.00 a head it should be more like $35.00 per person.

We went here to celebrate my birthday. We were excited about the seafood. We were disappointed in the seafood it wasnt tasty. The rest of the buffet had a good selection, food was only warm temperature though. They didn't keep up with topping up the food trays so we missed out on a bit. For the money I didn't find value here at the Conservatory. Would have prefered a dine service next time. Service staff very attentive.

We attended the early dinner and were lucky enough to be seated at the window. Wonderful food and lovely atmosphere - the restaurant itself is stunning and staff very attentive! We had to leave at 8 on the dot, but otherwise a very special evening!

The setting is absolutely stunning - in a beautiful, opulent room filled with white table cloths and silver. The waitress was very attentive but failed to tell us the sparkling water was not included so this extra cost was a nasty shock at the end of the afternoon tea. Unfortunately the vegetarian food was very average - the bread the sandwiches was in was so stale and almost inedible. The warm pastries were tasty. The desserts were a work of art and all should be tried! Superb fruit and cheese!

I had heard about the Conservatory and really wanted to see what all the hype was about so I decided to attend with my partner for Valentine’s Day. It was $170 for 2 people, we received a glass of champagne on arrival and were said to receive a red rose as well which we never got.
There is a lot of food, however, you have limited options as a vegetarian therefore there wasn’t a whole range of food for me to eat which was a bit disappointing.

First time at conservatory and was honestly quiet disappointed that the Valentine's dinner had such little selection

For it's value costing $100+ more, I had better options and choices of other buffets half the price

Went to the dinner service and even after spending $260+ plus had no sort of discount what so ever on the parking when told the staff

Genuinely dissapointed and won't be back again for business
