Hi, the meal was excellent a the quality of the food superb but unfortunately in the last moment the thing went wrong. That was supposed a gift from my sister and brother in law who previously paid the meal for us. They said to the woman who attend the call that meal was a wedding anniversary gift. And what was my surprise when the waiter give me the bill for pay. I had to call my brother in law and had to sent me the receipt of the payment. Finally everybody a little bit disappointed.

It was very noisy and I thought they should have a required dress code . You feel your paying and coming into a beautiful, opulent and romantic restaurant and there are kids running around, dropping things and also one child about 13 was in her basketball attire from her game with open shoes.
It brought the feel down to a food court experience.

Been here 2 years ago. Since then nothing has improved. The flavour of the food is rather bland. The buffet especially the Indian and Asian food station was always left without a refill of hot food. I had to wait for the chefs to stop talking in the back (visible to the patrons) to get their attention. The fried rice was dry and tasteless. Being that I have also tried Melba’s buffet, I am definitely unimpressed at the price tag that is charged here when they don’t even have live cooking stations

Overall a great experience for catching up with friends, the food was awesome and the desserts were fabulous. Service were really good from man but not from females, the girls doesn’t seem to be happy about their job. Would definitely come by another day.

Having High Tea at the Conservatory Melbourne Crown was the WORST High Tea I have ever attended.
The food selections were very poor, the service was terrible with unenthusiastic staff.. We spoke to management in regards to our concerns which was a waste of time as he did not deal with the situation confidently.
If you are considering attending here for high tea I would reconsider as it is a complete waste of time and money and there are far better venues in and around Melbourne to choose from.

It always makes it a special occasion when friends want to celebrate and feel special and not like a number. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the food is so fresh and well thought through. My friend was requiring gluten free and the chef walked her around to show her what she can eat. This was such a special touch as she always feels left out. Thanks for such a wonderful experience all up.

I really enjoyed the selection of all the lunch items however I was very dissapointed by the dessert options! Most lacked in flavour and the options were not great. They were ALL fruit based. There should be some more options for sweeter desserts.

Gorgeous venue. Pretty views. Amazing food. Unfortunately as there are so many people there, the noise level is so loud and you can barely hear the people sitting around you without yelling.

The pastry spread is good but not the main spread as the food is pretty ordinary like the sushi, the roast pork and the vegetables looks not fresh and not tasty.The coffee is out of this world. The staff very attentive and service top notch.

I have am allergy and so was taken aside by the chef and he walked me around the entire buffet showing me what foods were safe for me to eat. The service was exceptional. The seafood buffet was fantastic. Definitely the place to go for special occasions.

I asked for a table with a view because I was celebrating my birthday and I got the worst spot ever. I told them 2 weeks before and they still didn’t have enough time to look after. Booking was for four people and they gave a table for two, they had to rearrange later. Such a poor service.

Have not been back at Conservatory for more than 10yrs. I have to say the food quality and variety have been very good. Service has always been good.
However the food area can be made a bit bigger. I guess is a fine balance between seatings and food area to maximize it. Slightly bigger food print would be good.
Seating area was quite good atmosphere was good.
Japanese booth was a bit of hit and miss. Overall we enjoyed it.

1. abysmal selection of teas for a 'high tea'
2. our tea order was forgotten, and only after we follow up, did we receive it (3/4 of the way through the sitting)
3. Goodie bags are provided as you sit down, we were a party of three, but only 2 goodie bags were provided, we requested another but the waiters refused, stating that this was normal...
4. minor, but important: the food on the stands was not explained, even though it is customary to do so. we were unsure of what we were eating
