Food was average more a local club buffet definitely not premium.
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.
the food and service is nice. But some of the plates are not clean.
Always consistant. Great value for money, great service not too noisy , great food and views.. whats not to like here. we keep coming back..
Very memorable for us
Wonderful experience. The food was fresh and well cooked. Great variety. Service was excellent. Had a table overlooking the river.
Conservatory is a nice place to dine, food was good, but glad we paid for the lunch special.
Our lunch was a special birthday treat for my mum. The fact that there was a lunchtime deal on for $59 was a bonus- it included a glass of wine, sparkling or soft drink, a coffee and free parking! So well worth the drive in!
We loved the food and the desserts were all amazing and enough for everyone! We would love to do the lunch again!
Great location with Yarra/city view. Lovely staff, excellent buffet choices especially seafood.
A Delightful sparkling wine included (or your choice of other).
A well organised, delicious and fresh buffet in a Parisian inspired restaurant.
Treat yourself and loved ones to lunch at Crown Conservatory 🥂
There was a great variety of food that tasted very nice
We were greeted with beautiful and friendly service which continued with all staff. The food was so fresh and well prepared and there seemed to be ample supply. Fabulous birthday lunch!
Wonderful experience spent with friends celebrating birthdays
Will love to attend the Conservatory in the near future.
One thing, are you able to add my points on to my rewards card.
the food is incredible you can name any food and it is there. have been there a couple of times maybe change the desert table up a bit its always the same. but very good food and will definitely be coming back again.
Lovely for lunch , nice view of the Yarra.
Great variety of food, including seafood.
Would have been nice to have crab and a whole fish . (maybe seasonal)
The buffet was excellent and was replenished regularly so the dishes were never empty. The variety was great and the staff attentive.
Parking was part of the special offer. The voucher listed Whiteman Street as the address for The Conservatory. The closest parking to The Conservatory was the Casino multi-level carpark we parked in. How would anyone know the “other” multi-level was the one in the offer? This “mistake” cost us $50 for what we thought was free parking. Very disappointing!
Excellent except that waiting staff were heavily focused on clearing away plates and not on offering any drinks - failing to make eye contact with us to met our needs. I had to seek out a passing waiter several times for a wine menu, coffees, ask how to use facilities (as it was our first time) and location of toilets and regarding bill. No info was provided at all but when first seated our waitress spoke incredibly poor English which might have covered some of the above but I couldn’t tell.
The manager didn't find our booking information at first, so we wait at the restaurant entry for a long time. Although they arranged the seat for us, but the seat almost in the aisle, I was a little dissatisfied with it.
We loved the whole experience. The food and service was outstanding and we sat in a really lovely area of the restaurant where we could enjoy the waterfront view. It was worth driving down from Bendigo for a wonderful time with family
Good environment for special occasions is recommended. Foods are ok but not many options as expected. Service from staffs are not really good though. We were on the very far corner, we need to wait for staff's attention, as they were not likely to walk that far. Good for some catching up, but not usual.
We go to the conservatory buffet lunch 3 times a year every year and it is by far the best value for money buffet in Melbourne. Food & staff first class.
Amount of variety and quality of food really great . Presentation nice as well and deserts yummy.
The location, setting, food & service was higher than my expectations. Truly enjoyed the experience with friends. I have already recommended the experience with friends & colleagues! Will definitely be a repeat customer, and they were respectful of dietary needs. Thank yo!
The Conservatory exceeded all my expectations. It turn a special occasion (Mum's 80th Birthday) into a day she says "I will never forget). Staff were wonderful, food excellent, view WOW
Thank you from all our family.
I booked through Crown and took me to this booking site. In the booking procedure not once was there confirmation of the price so when I went to pay the price for lunch was $40 more than I originally thought When you are booking buffet set up price confirmation at the end should confirm price so nice day end ended unpleasant
Very good choice if you are a good eater
And food is of good quality
Indian food section is not even worth looking at
But there is more than enough choice otherwise anyway
2nd time being there and again excellent
Unfortunately not as good as we were lead to believe
A lovely day out a bit noisy but nothing to complain about service was impeccable
For what you do receive I wouldn’t attend a Saturday evening again, I don’t believe it was worth what we spent unfortunately. I believe many other restaurants in Crown would of deemed more fitting for that sort of price.
Enjoy the meal from appetizer to desert.
Outstanding food, service & venue. Couldn’t fault it!
Have been to The Conservatory many times now with friends and have never been disappointed. Their buffet is fabulous. Service is always excellent. Very friendly staff. Good value for money. Would not hesitate to recommend this venue.
special occasion dining
I mentioned to the restaurant that we were celebrating my sisters 18th birthday. In the past, they would always provide a glass of bubbly. When I asked about this they were unwilling to offer her one as she did not have a rewards card however I did myself.
They used to also provide a cake for birthdays however also no longer do this which was another disappointment. The food standard was rather disappointing compared to the past - in particular the freshness of the oysters and the crab.
Food was ok, Not much variety for the money you pay.
Drink service was terrible. Waited over an hour for a drink and had poor table service
It is a lovely venue,nice atmosphere, excellent food, great variety and good service
We were very disappointed in the extra cost of the gin and tonic and the 15 minutes it took to arrive
Summer High Tea was truly amazing experience. The Cakes,slices,ice cream, waffles, crepes, chocolate fountain,donut wall,lolly area, cheese area and savouries were define. Alcohol was expensive but good quality.
I would recommend for special occasion.
Not overly impresssed. Over priced and delivers little. Very disappointed that no drinks not even coffee was included with the $250 (2 people) price tag. They were happy to take their 1.3% master card surcharge. Is that even allowed anymore? Had to ask for fresh cutlery twice and came back to table to find dirty dish still there. Would not come back in a hurry.
It was my first time dining and I was highly pleased with the service I received from the workers. They were very friendly but also professional. They really did try to make your experience the greatest it could be. I also have a nut allergy and the chef was kind enough to show me which foods to stay away from. The only issue I would say is there was contamination when it came to using the tongs/scoops for the food. The tongs would of touched the same foods I was allergic too. Overall, good time
Ideal restaurant if you like seafood. The rest of the food was vegetarian, Asian food and desserts. Wasn’t much variety, nor were the mains that great. The highlight of my visit was the desserts. $95+$35 for wine.. you would think you would get the wine for free since your paying that much for just okay food wouldn’t you? The restaurant was beautiful but I probably wouldn’t go back
