Hi there - didn't feel I could comment much either way as for the life of us we couldn't find the venue despite map saying it was there. Wish we'd been able to find it.

Service was great and attentive. Need some improvement with quality and delicate with High tea which was a bit disappointed if compare to other high end hotels. The assortment was plain and boring.

Service staff were friendly and approachable, but the food was quite ordinary and definitely not good value for the price ($69.00 with a glass of sparkling). The website showed a price of $65.00pp, but this was the price and menu for 2020, which should have been updated. This is poor and misleading advertising. I wish that I had read all the reviews from others, then I probably would not have booked for the high tea. A little disappointing, especially given that I was taking another couple out for a birthday treat.

Little Collins Street kitchen is an open restaurant not cosy or inviting. Everything is grey and no plants. Spray cleaning bottles and a dirty cloth in the
Servery in middle of restaurant next to water jugs. Food was nice but my calamari was supposed to come with a cucumber salad and came with just a leafy salad. The chef made me a fresh one and came to apologise which was nice. My husband had beef cheek which was nice and tender. I ordered a 2015 Shiraz and the waiter brought a 2017 and when I questioned it, he said that must've a mistake and I wouldn't get a glass of that for the listed price!
Overall we were not very happy and would not visit again.

There didn't seem to be a booking for two for the Grand Slam High Tea, even though I received confirmation number and showed it to the waitress. We were taken to a table for four with lunch menu! After that, we were taken to a different corner of the room with a small table and throughout the two hours, 12-2 that we were there, there were nobody else for High Tea. The waitress poured the water and splash some onto my face. When I asked for Earl Grey tea, I received English Breakfast instead. It was by far the worst experience we had! We had been to Parliament House, the Strangers Corridor, The Windsor, yet this High Tea was half of the value we paid. No, we wouldn't have recommended it to any of our family or friends!! It was our birthday celebrations.

I don’t understand why to bother ask customers to phone the number provided to make a booking when the call taker isn’t able to help with the booking and also no one calls the customer back either. Luckily, I worked it out to book on line.
Unfortunately, we picked up some off and smelly oysters. During the night we needed to top up the water by ourselves.

I was again disappointed with the hot food options from the buffet. Some of the food was not hot and no vegetables other than potato. Not everyone likes salads. A mix of broccoli, carrots, beans, pumpkin etc would be good.
Seafood was good, the salmon excellent and the desserts as usual were great.

Visited with my beautiful mum for part of a girls day out. The high tea was delicious and the service was very friendly and welcoming.

We were able to linger over our tasty treats without feeling rushed.

A fantastic experience and a lovely memory for us both.

we received a warm welcome on entry to the hotel as well as the restaurant. Service was timed very well as we had time to converse before presentation of food. High Tea was delightful and ample serves for Afternoon Tea. Presentation of table and crockery was lovely. Distance between tables was wonderful so private conversations were not interrupted by loud noises. On behalf of my sister and myself thank you for a memorable High Tea.
Kind regards

My family and I came back to Little Collins for a high tea for my dads 60th birthday. Our experience from when we booked online, when I rang to change the date and made a request right up until we had finished our high tea was lovely. We were welcomed with a warm smile, the service was friendly and quick and everyone whom we interacted with were lovely. The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a lovely time and they thoughtfully surprised my dad with a special dessert from the chef. We always enjoy our time here and will be back again next year. Thankyou!

this was a very disappointing experience.
we had been looking forward to coming to this buffet for some time as we regularly attend the Gold Coast Sheraton.
the buffet was extremely poor. very little choice, and poor assortment of foods and sweets.
the value for money is non-existant.
the cost for a dinner of this quality should be no more than $30 per head.

We went to there on last Saturday for Seafood Buffet dinner.

We paid almost $100 per persons. Seafoods are really fresh, but not much hot dishes to choose. Only have around 10 different dishes.

No steaks, no sushi, no sashimi at all. Desserts wasn't tasty good and not much choose.

Not recommend to anyone at all.

Went to have the High Coffee menu. The savoury and sweet dishes are scrumptious. The staff are friendly and helpful too and the ambiance is quiet and serene. I will be returning for another High Coffee.

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.

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.
