A great place with great food
10 out of 10
My favourite buffet. The ambience is amazing and the food selection great. The service is also impeccable.
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!
Lovely buffet lunch to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. Great ambience, beautiful scenery and setting. Lovely food, with a great variety of choice.
The conservatory was so beautiful, what a nice place to have a special occasion. Overlooking the river was stunning. The selection of food was outstanding and the service was awesome. I would highly recommend this venue who is wanting a romantic night out.
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.
Food was varied, well presented and tasted wonderful, had to wait for initial service to be seated, table was not properly cleaned, waited for used plates to be removed and coffee was not the best
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
Initially thought it would be nice but on reflection felt like a giant diner ,chairs are too heavy tables laminex not what I expected after Buffets around the world I experience on Business trips
Good atmosphere great food good service. Staff here are excellent. Not imposing but there if you need them
Food is great and the atmosphere is just beautiful
i believe that I had such a high expectation that it left me quite underwhelmed. I was surprised that soft drinks were not part of the buffet however, I assume it is to balance the price of the seafood buffet. The biggest disappointment were the oysters as the texture was mushy and it left a fishy aftertaste. The lamb was quite dry for my liking but I really enjoyed the honey ribs. The dessert bar, sashimi and mushroom soup was by far my favourite.
Great food and atmosphere
great location food fantastic service excellent.
did not like our table as it backed onto the waiters return table and the noise from the returning plates was disappointing.
it was our 40th wedding dinner.
Everything was fantastic. Food, service everything. I even asked for a window seat for our special occassion & that wasn't missed though not promised either. Just one thing: pushing us out in 2 hrs was jarring & caused us to relax elsewhere, enjoy drinks there rather than the conservatory which would've been our preference.
Was disappointed that the coffee was cold. We asked for a new one and they happily made a fresh hot one but only had 15 minutes to drink it and we were rushed out the door because they had to set up for the next group. Don’t offer coffee half an hour before you want people to leave
Great venue for a special dinner/lunch/high tea
Friendly helpful staff ,lots of different food options available to suit different tastes.
No lack of choice ,and the buffet was always clean and tidy and topped up regularly with fresh food.
Impressed with the excellent quality of seafood.
First time visit, well worth it and keen to go again.
Yummy good bubbles cold and perfect lovely ice in drinks
Seafood to die for
Beautiful place for my friends 70th birthday
We’re fantastic with our parking issue
Love loved it
Great value with a glass of wine and parking included. Buffet was well stocked with plenty of seafood and a great selection of hot dishes and deserts.
Staff were very attentive and cheerful, plus the ambience was great.
Its only $60 odd bucks for lunch. Will go again when next in Melbourne...I've paid a lot more for a lot less elsewhere.
Food was of excellent quality and selections were great for most diets.
The price for lunch is excellent value.
Partner was slightly disappointed there were no sickly chocolate desserts!
Service was attentive without being overbearing.
Good food and great service
Being a vego I was a wee bit concerned about what would be available for me, however I shouldn't have worried. The vegetarian dishes were outstanding in every way.
The staff were incredibly polite and professional.
The room and the decorations were beautiful.
For taking my partner out for her special birthday dinner, I can think of no better place. Thanks guys!
Trendy place for a buffet lunch with attentive staff. Good value for money.
Food and service fantastic
Fabulous food, service and location for a family treat
The food was really good and the staff were very friendly helpful and professional.
A very good night's dinner and relaxing environment
Love the variety and freshness of the food
The Conservatory is always very good
It is very good, however if anyone is vegetarian it is not close to value for money. There were around 4 or so vegetarian and they were just very basic (scallop potatoes, or salad or stri fry with tofu etc)
If non-vegetarian then would recommend, but if you are vegetarian then it is quite expensive and not value for money
Food choices were superb, ambience great but best of all was the service by the staff and in particular, Cedric and Andrea. Looking forward to our next visit.
The food and material are not especial. Im from Taiwan, our best buffet might be AUD 90, but we have soft drink, juice, and good food. I got good recomments from internet, and arrange dinner yesterday with my friends, totally 12 people. But we were disapointed last night... Nothing specially for food , and poor service. Are you the best buffet in melbourne?
Nothing special not worth for the money that we paid plus need to pay for the expensive parking. We paid for the location really.
great food and service
Wonderful evening with delicious fresh food
Great variety and quality of food. Staff friendly and helpful. Our kids reckon it is the best restaurant in the world.
Great for our special wedding anniversary. We were rather underwhelmed with the choice of mains but the entree, salads were excellent.
Foods were very average for Luna New Year rate, which is not much different to normal day buffet, there were not variety of food each cusine. Also, we had few unfresh oyster which were very stinky.
The staff were friendly and quick but when the restaurant got busier, i had to stand up yo get cutleries, napkin, water myself.
Apart from a beautiful restaurant with view, my dinning experience was very disappointing unfortunately.
I’ve been here a few times and love the food and location. It was our first time for high tea celebrating a baby shower. I’ve found the service was a bit of let down this time. No one came to grab our drinks order and had to ask a few times . Plus had to ask twice for same item as it was forgotten. Waitress was taking away our food at 4.35pm saying high tea was until 5pm. True but still 25 min to go. As I said I love this place and the food is stunning, just unlucky with the service this time
