Preferred their standard Parisian high tea menu over their limited time High Coffee menu, although we appreciated the included cocktail for our afternoon. The High Coffee menu yielded a lot of bookings and as a result, when in full service the service quality dropped dramatically compared to previously when we've come to Little Collins St Kitchen, Sheraton Hotel for high tea. They weren't attentive to collect our drinks order (we had to ask a few times), my friend's extra hot coffees came out lukewarm twice, they served food for our table last when we were there first, and lastly they forgot about my special birthday request and gave me attitude about confirming that the birthday person was gluten-free.

Great kids can cook afternoon tea at the Sheraton, such a wonderful afternoon for the kids as well as the adults, food for adults and children was spot on and the chef taking the children through their cooking event was brilliant.

Everything was excellent, the food was delicious and we felt very welcomed.
My only suggestion would be signage out the front and at the top of the stairs, just so outside visitors know where they are going.
I will definitely visit again

A nice but nothing special high tea/coffee. Food was only OK and was missing things like traditional finger sandwiches (a single point sandwich of toasted ham and cheese didn't say indulgent to me). Service again was only OK - we had trouble understanding one of our waitresses and other tables were having the same issue as we all had to try to decipher was was being said for each other. Pay the little extra and go to the Windsor for proper High Tea.

We booked for the Kid's Christmas in July cooking workshop. The kids sandwich bread was very hard (like stale bread), we received replacements but they were still not super fresh.

The workshop setup was great, however the Chef who was leading the session didn't really connect with the kids and was a little hard to understand and hence the kids were not that engaged.

The value for money was exceptional. We all enjoyed most of the food that was put out and left feeling very full.
The staff were pleasant and helpful at the beginning. But with the change in staff we couldn’t get anyone’s attention for water or more tea/coffee.
The sitting area didn’t have a lot of ambience to it. But quiet enough and enough space for a pram beside us.

We had a brilliant time and will be back. The food for adults was beautiful, there was so much food I almost exploded trying to eat it all.

The kids food I wasn’t as impressed with, the sandwiches and veggie sticks were great but I wish chips hadn’t been served, something healthier would have been much better, maybe some flat bread and dips, or olives and cheese. The presentation of the kids food was also lacking, this didn’t mater to the kids until my food came out and they saw the beautiful presentation and from then on I had to fight off little fingers trying to get to my food.

The pastry chef was brilliant and my boys loved making the animals and decorating the cakes, I couldn’t believe how quiet they were.

Table service was very slow, we had to wait a long time to be seated and were never asked if we needed any more drinks, we had to ask at the bar ourselves. This surprised me as it wasn’t very busy.

Overall the experience was fantastic and I will recommend it to others.

It was a lovely afternoon, for the most part. A little disappointed that we weren't seated in the sunny area so were in the back section - I appreciate that we were sat away from lots of small children but there was an annoying customer walking around talking on his phone! It was also a little disappointing that, as I was giving our high tea as a gift for a friend, that the amount was announced in front of him. Perhaps just show me the amount??

Overall Disappointed with the evening. Firstly being greeted with stained upholstery was not what I would expect from a five star hotel restaurant. Off putting immediately! Service was very poor (under staffed?) No serving utensils provided for the vegetables. No oyster forks. Constantly had to ask for drinks to be topped up and/or replenished. My ‘seafood fish of the day’ was served luke warm and did look like leftovers. Desserts whilst nicely presented were very small for the price. The one positive was the children’s menu was nice quality food for the kids and the steak my brother ordered was very good. However overall very disappointing. Will reconsider renewing the clubmarriot membership as even with discounted food and birthday bottle wine I don’t consider the experience was worth going to the restaurant again I’m afraid.

A pleasant Valentine's Day dinner. Appetizers were the best, mains lacking and desserts ok. Sheraton need to be reminded credit card surcharge can only be the cost incurred by the business, (refer ACCC ruling), not any more. 1.5% surcharge is in excess of what a business that size would be paying; more likely .5% to .8% would be their cost.

We went to Little Collins Street Kitchen for Kids Can Cook holiday program. The high tea for the adults was great - just enough on the stand. Replenished coffee/tea and full glass on sparkling wine.

The Kids Can Cook program was awesome. Good food for kids and such hands on and fun chef. Highly recommend as a holiday activity.

Restaurant was very quiet though which was surprising. Perhaps not enough people know about this gem.

Ordered the king fish salad for entrée which was tastless, main seafood orichette which was absolutely awful and returned to the kitchen replacement dish was only a little better, size small with hardly any seafood but charged at a hefty price $38.00. Duck l'orang was okay but not authentic. Overall very disappointed. Ambience was very noisy.

We have been to the restaurant many times whether just for dinner or when going to dinner and a show and as usual the food and service were excellent. Open table enabled many and varied choices from seafood to deserts. A relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere at top end of the city close to all theaters.

We went for the Paris afternoon tea. Rather disappointed with the food as everything seemed rather dried out and had the impression all items had been assembled on the tiered serving plate many hours before. I could also teach them a thing or two about how to make a decent scone! These were quite flat and not at all fluffy. It would have been nicer to have a pot of tea on the table instead of having to catch the waitresses eye every time we needed our cups replenishing. The cafe area was also very noisy and we asked to sit in the bar area which was much nicer. Staff were friendly but could have been more vigilant with the tea service. Overall not somewhere I would go back to.

We chose the buffet for our first visit. The seafood was excellent in all respects especially the prawns.
The so called hot food was a disappointment, a lot of it was cold and not much choice. The meat looked uninteresting.
Desserts were excellent and the drinks satisfactory.
Peppermint tea brand should be changed as there was no taste to it even after complaining.
Service was very friendly and efficient.
