    What a wonderful experience we had. Our server Clare was a delight, and was so helpful, always checking in and helping us with anything. The setting was lovely and food looked and tasted amazing. I loved that we had a huge selection of tasty morsels but not too much that you left feeling sick. The balance and quantity was perfect We had a fructose intolerance and the chef fully catered for this. Overall we loved the experience, the venue, the food and Clare! It was the perfect start to a Wicked filled day. Thank you

    Loved the whole experience! The staff were very knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. ‘Wicked’ themed High tea was amazing. Sweet and savoury items were divine. We could not eat it all, staff kindly allowed us to take scones home. Will again choose to do High Tea at the Westin.

    A lovely relaxing time was had. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Scone texture was perhaps a little gluggy in the mouth. Some of the sweet things were a tad too sweet but still delicious! Overall a great afternoon- highly recommend!

    Took my niece to high tea before a show, and we had a fantastic time. Beautiful hotel, and we were only in the lobby. Staff were genuine and lovely. Delicate high tea with some delicious bites. Bubbles cold and tea list was plenty. We had a great time.

    The Lobby Bar was just perfect for our pre-theatre lunch. Staff are super professional but not stuffy. Very attentive and helpful. Our lunch was delicious, and the ambiance was perfect. From the beautiful comfy chairs to the presentation of the meals everything really added to our experience. Definitely is now our go-to when heading to the Regent or any time we want to get out of the hustle and bustle and relax with good food, wine and staff. Highly recommended.

    Have been here before, and unfortunately, today the experience just wasn't as good as it has been in the past. Was there with a group of friends for morning tea, to celebrate a birthday. I'd indicated this at booking, but there was nothing special for the birthday girl. In addition, the service was unattentive: several times, we had to go looking for someone to help us. The food was good, but the scones, which are usually the highlight, were unfortunately dense and cold. There were also a number of items that were very 'hot' (spicy) - usually those of us who don't like spice heat can just not eat one item, but there was more than one that was inedibly hot - one of them was too hot for everybody. Disappointing, compared to previously wonderful visits.

    Fabulous place for a family afternoon tea . We had a party from age 89 to 4 and the staff were great . Very relaxing and a good range of food and drinks . It is a bit expensive but I am not sure there is another place in Melbourne that is as good for afternoon tea .

    Excellent service - attentive, kind but not intrusive. Pleasant surroundings in a quiet area near to the window. Catered to dietaries with great care yet didn’t compromise taste. The proportion of savoury to sweet items needs adjustment. A better balance would increase the savoury offerings.

    We expected more from a luxury hotel. Asked concierge for directions to the high tea, just received an open door and a wave in. We were left wondering around the lobby, no idea where to go. Finally seated and noticed a dirty cloth and bottle of cleaning product left on the table next to us. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about. We found the venue dull and boring, especially when we were seated in a secluded area. The only saving grace was the free flowing bubbly and amazing friends to share it with.

    We needed somewhere nice for a bite to eat before seeing Moulin Rouge next door... our hour stop at the Westin Lobby Lounge was perfect! Service was A1, very friendly and professional, couldn't have asked for better. The food was delicious, though a little light on, but the plates we shared were enough for us. We all had a delicious Westin Mule cocktail, which was tasty and refreshing. We ended up back there post-show for a coffee, which speaks volumes I think! Thanks for having us!

    Hospitality Staff were welcoming and attentive however sometimes would miss checking in whether our tea was filled. Food wise scones werent fresh or warm. The food was okay,ingredients didnt taste high quality, savoury items werent fresh either, most was cold and seem like it was made from ingriendients put together from the container in the fridge.

    Lack lustre service; certainly NO festive cheer was on offer. Moreover, the food looked good but was either bland or too sweet. Finally, ambience wise the mini orchestra didn't play for long. Thus, overall, the experience was VERY under whelming.

    Always an amazing High Tea experience at the Westin Hotel Melbourne. And a thoughtful complimentary birthday cake for my friends 50th Birthday too. The Festive High Tea was just delicious and l would highly recommend it. Such a lovely place to stay or visit especially around Christmas time. Thanks for a memorable time.
