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.

Being a marriott and sheraton member and going to the partner restaurants especially buffets, i have never left unhappy until now. The seafood was average but the roast was cold including the gravy. Would not recommend for the price at all

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.

Good school holiday activity for kids. They really enjoyed their food, and the desserts they made by themselves. Under the sea is really a good choice. Hope there will be a Jurassic theme next time.

Had the pre-theatre menu, which was excellent value for 2-courses. However, the main (beef cheek) was rather ordinary. Notwithstanding this, the service was good and attentive. Probably wouldn’t go again.

Only one disappointing thing - we had a booking for 5.30pm and was told upon arrival that they didn't open until 6pm. The system shouldn't allow us to book in until 6pm at the earliest.
But the Manager was very good about it and gave us a free entrée we waited.
The food was really good but I personally wouldn't pay $89 per person.

Although we enjoyed the chocolate high tea, preferred to have more savory than sweet. Was dissapointed the tea was served in boring white mug and teapot. Not the right ambience for high tea.

Chef was really nice and friendly, went to each table to ask if the food was alright, Servers are a little slow with refilling our water, waited nearly 10 minutes to find a server that is free and around to come around. Food was pretty good, more on the pricey side so it wouldn't be a place we visit frequently, only for special occasions.
