Delicious food and nice ambience but for the overpriced meals you would expect great service. The service we got was very poor. The waitress who said she would look after us for the night failed to explain the beveridge package advertised on the website, and only returned once during the night so we had to hail down others for drinks. The wine list was very disappointing - why not promote all of the excellent Victorian wines. Great that there were vegan sweet options and vegetarian options.

Buffet was well presented. Quality of seafood was fresh and high quality.

I tried a bit of everything to taste the quality. There was some outstanding taste and some extremely poor quality.

I do not recommend eating the crab at all. It’s like eating paper. No flavour. No texture. No nothing. It’s like I was eating nothing. The crab meat didn’t taste like anything.

The seared tuna was disappointing. It didn’t taste fresh at all but rather dry.

Overall, all the other foods was fantastic

This is the fourth time I have dined at The Conservatory. The previous three times were really lovely with great food and good service. Unfortunately this time the service was really lacking. Perhaps they were under staffed but after our initial welcome we basically had to call out to the staff from then on to get any service/drinks. It was embarrassing because it was a special occasion and I had organised it based on my previous experience. Sadly I won’t be going back in a hurry.

The seafood buffet was as good as the previous time we went. The night was let down by our drinks. We ordered a sparkling wine and this was not really cold to start with but clearly the bottle was not kept on ice and by the last glass was just room temperature. The mains of Indian and chinese based was nice but not memorable. Again there was nothing special about the other mains.

The entre items are what made the meal for us. In hindsight, I should of just gone through the entre selection.

It was my birthday shared with best friends. We are all foodies and enjoyed the selections of food available, the quality of the food, the beautiful ambience and lovely service from very friendly staff that served us. The drink package was good value and was enjoyed by one of our party very much. Will highly recommend to others and we will return again sometime.

OMG, we had heard so many rave reviews from Friends, but, until you actually experience it you have no idea. Kudos to the Wonderful Staff for keeping an excellent eye on us... but, never intruding! They were wonderful!! The food is to die for!!

The range was excellent for a high end buffet.
Both the lamb and pork was perfect. The need looked great as well just too much to sample.

Only negative was the poor quality and range of bread options. Just a small bowl of dry hard small roll. Not good enough at $100 a head

I think in terms of a buffet this place is great, however if you a vegetarian you have about 3 options. Really not worth the $100+ if you don’t eat meat. The others I was with enjoyed it though.

We go to the Conservatory at least 3 times a year and sometimes more. We bring overseas and interstate visitors as we know they will love the food and ambiance. The seafood is lovely and fresh and though I am not a “sweets person” the dessert bar is irresistible with a huge range of yummy sweets to choose from. 6We highly recommend the Crown Conservatory .

Took my daughter out to lunch as it was her 21st birthday, food was good but not a huge selection.
I burnt my hand on a lid that had been left to long under a heat lamp, requested ice for the burn but had no staff check to see if i was ok.

This was a special family occasion. The dining room was delightfully appointed with a sense of occasion. There was an amazing array of delicious food. The staff were friendly and efficient. The only negative was the high cost of the beverages (all). $16 for a GLASS of wine, $6.00 for a coffee. Bit over the top.

Very disappointed with service. Nothing was explained re buffet etc.
Felt rushed! Those of us that chose the sparkling free pour option had to continually ask for refills.
"Hot food" was njoy hot, warm at best.
Not a very memorable experience. Especially when we were charged a service fee for paying with credit card .

From the moment you are greeted to the final goodbye staff are very friendly and nothing is to much effort.
Great selection of food and it is always restocked so it never runs out.
Although the wine list is a bit expensive the rest compensates.

This buffet has to be one of the best in town. All available dishes were fresh and plentiful. We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary there and was made welcome from the beginning, with a great window table. Staff explained the set up and were courteous and available. Will be coming back for sure. 10 out of ten guys, well done.
