I love the conservatory it is an awesome place to eat however I was a little disappointed as a regular customer who comes through the week for lunches for meetings, the price on Sunday is $50 dearer and on top of that it doesn't include parking or a drink which is terrible given you are paying much more than you would during the week.
As a get-together for a group of us ladies, the venue is perfect for talking without shouting. We are waited on by friendly attentive staff who do not “hover”. We can individually eat small portions whenever we are ready, and in no way hurried to finish and go.
Welcomed with charm and elegance by staff who sat us and explained everything to us. 6 in our party and we all agreed that the choice of food was outstanding at the buffet.Even though I cannot eat any sort of shellfish, those that could were amazed by the selection of oysters, prawns, crab and mussels etc. I especially enjoyed the choices of different country's dishes, excellent is all I can say.
The range and quality of food available.
I was only disturbed with patrons coming in and out and not staying to eat because of one of the dinner party person planned to stay whilst leaving his electric mobile vechile was left right behind another diner.
However the service for us was commendable
It was a treat for my 12 year old son who appreciates great food - staff are warm and welcoming , the food is simple and fresh, and presented well. It feels like a treat / celebration place for anyone to enjoy. I think it’s great value for money too which is important to me.
We loved our first experience dining at the conservatory however we were seated next to an older gentleman who complained the entire time about people que jumping whilst his wife was getting him lunch. All the while berating those that did so. He was loud obnoxious and clearly there to make everyone else’s experience uncomfortable.
Is there a particular etiquette diners are expected to follow when selecting their food or do we line up at the sushi section just to get prawns?
Was a really nice place with a great variety of food
Good selection of quality foods but would benefit from a more extensive choice.
Wonderful fresh produce from all regions of the world. The service and cleanliness is exceptional and the additional seafood is superb. The desert bar is delicious and extensive! It’s a shame that the drink prices are so expensive as this adds significantly to the overall cost.
Service was poor, food was average and we were seated in what felt like a spot that was just filling a space on the edge of the restaurant with people from the walk way walking right next to where your eating.
Fabulous food, environment and service.
The wait staff were exceptional - very attentive.
Great food and selection, great service perfect for a special occasion.
Food selection for the High Tea was awful stale sandwiches inedible fish pastry Tastes like it was made from leftovers. The high tea selection was laughable it has gone down hill so badly I will never return. The regular lunch buffet is much more appealing.
Cold average flavoured food and too expensive.
I really appreciate the complementary drinks and the quality of food (seafood was very fresh!)
The buffet was amazing, would definitely recommend to anyone in search of a nice buffet.
The food was amazing and the service was wonderful.
Great service, got a window seat as I went for a 21st birthday occasion so had a chance to overlook the water and the fire . Food was great.
Everything about the whole dining experience was great.
Great for mums 70th
This is the second time I have visited the conservatory. I was not impressed this time around. I found it was poor value for money. The carvery meat was dried out. A lot of options were empty and I had to stand around waiting at the buffet for the food to come out. The deserts however are amazing. I am not a seafood fan, my partner said it was excellent
Disappointed there were no grabs not much of a selection of fish no smoked salmon natural disappointed there wasn’t a better range of desserts for people that have nut allergies all I was given was muffins
We celebrated my daughter's 30th birthday and we made the best decision choosing the Conservatory's high tea. We felt really special and enjoyed everything there. I wish there's a bigger score then 10 for the food and the service.... exceptional!!!
stunning food & selection.
It was a great place for my wife's birthday celebration. A selection of seafoods were excellent, I would recommend.
I was seriously disappointed. Paying $120 per head was well above the standard that was delivered. Prawns were soggy, oysters were hit and miss and the desert selection was poor and tasteless. However, the main selection was great, particularly the Indian food. The ambiance is amazing and the service was friendly and prompt(although they delivered the wrong drinks twice).
It breaks my heart to say this, as I am a big fan of restaurants at Crown, it was a $69 buffet moonlighting as $120.
Service lacking yesterday - slow to receive tiered plate with food, was not told what items on tiered plate were by wait-staff, very long delay getting tea and even then only half us of received tea, had to keep following up and then received a tea pot without a strainer so they got a cup of tea leaves. Floor under and around table was extremely dirty - not sure when it was last cleaned. Food was exceptional as always but service too slow and disorganised. For $75pp I expected better.
Always is a pleace for have a great dinner.
Wonderful experience- highly recommended!
Incredibly disappointed in the staff and the service. Not up to scratch for Crown.
Fantastic fresh delicious food with a great variety. Staff are very friendly and helpful and professional. The place is gorgeous with beautiful views and out lay
Great night overall good quality
Great quality food and service but getting the hurry up to leave after 2 hours for the next group of people was not a good look and took the edge off a perfect night. Felt like a blatant grab for money. Not impressed.
Lots of great meal choices, great view.
Service should be better - clearing of plates is very slow... considering the price of Buffett, better service is expected.
We had a special occasion birthday at Conservatory Saturday lunchtime. Food was quite good with a broad range of choices and quite tasty. The lack of service definitely let it down and we wouldnt bother returning based on today's experience. No recognition of the special occasion that we were celebrating, continually having to chase the waitress for drinks were a few of the things that didnt go down well. Overall a so-so experience but for the money paid theres definitely better options.
Seafood bar was nice and enjoyed seeing selections of cheese, cold meats etc as well. I think the most value for money are the selection of desserts as they are all beautifully made and all of the ones we tried were delicious.
The Staff were very attentive,polite and friendly
Absolutely beautiful experience! This was our first visit and we can not wait to return! Exquisite food and the restaurant is just stunning!
