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.
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!
As a 'premium' crown restuarant it was underwhelming.
We selected this deal on the basis of the seafood buffet and the promotional imagery used on the Crown website. We were disappointed to find that images used were not an accurate reflection. The only seafood in the buffet were cheaper options (prawns, mussels, smoked salmon and oysters).....the Crab, Scallops and Balmain Bugs were nowhere to be seen. On 3 occasions I went for oysters and the tray was empty, very slow to restock these.
Took my Mum for her birthday. We both really enjoyed it. Service was great and the staff were very friendly and efficient. This would be one of the best High Tea experiences we have had in Melbourne.
I was extremely disappointed with the high tea experience as there was not much of selection at the buffet area. I had previously attended the high tea on a few previous occasions and it was completely different. The customer service experience was a little disappointing. As a whole not value for money.
We arrived late at 650pm for a 615pm sitting due to a crash on the Monash.
We were seated then the waitress rushed off. Water or drink was not offered. Had to ask for water.
We were told at 7pm we need to conclude our dinner by 8pm.
We were asked for coffee and tea whilst trying to eat mains. Had the wine menu taken from us so we didn't get the chance to order. The bill was sitting on the table when we sat back down for dessert. Ordered coffees and a new bill was provided.
Very fun special treat meal just a shame to be slightly rushed out at the end.
Delightful setting ,service and quality of food 🙂
Well done staff and thank you
Took my fiancee there for our anniversary and we both enjoyed it a lot
unfortunately, conservatory remove their lobster night which main reason i visit,
will try melba instead due to this reason
Staff were very professional, friendly and attentive. So much beautifully prepared food of very high quality. If anything, would be nice if food was a little warmer. Very efficient entry and exit processes. Would definitely recommend.
Just experienced yet another beautiful Buffett Lunch at Conservatory...... ticked every box for a 10 out of 10 Score.Was a girls day out Lunch for 11 Girls...
All agreed The Best place to dine out in Melbourne.......every type of food you can wish for and more! Beautiful decor,
Lovely friendly staff..
Coming from Bendigo by train....straight to Yarra to The Conservatory made for a great fun Birthday Celebration...well done .coming again and again and again!
Good food, good service, good atmosphere and an overall good place to eat.
Service was excellent and food was fresh
My family and I celebrated my 60th birthday at The Conservatory and as my grandchildren were too young to remember I treated them again so they could experience the amazing choice of food and the exceptional standard. They are 16 and 14 now so will remember wonderful memories with their nan. Many thanks. Will come for lunch next. It’s cheaper. 🤗
First time I’ve been here highly recommend it! Lovely food lovely people I most definitely will go back again
Food was delicious, but our location was terrible we were in the corner next to sushi bar. Guests were constantly leaning on our table and it was so loud we could barely hear each other talk. Very disappointing in our table location, there shouldn’t be a table there.
Great food and service
Buffet dining, great food that never fails to disappoint.
My mum and aunt both 89 years old.
Had such a special lunch at the conservatory.
Loved it all. ....still taking about the chocolate fountain.
Not a complaint but...would be nice if you had a staff member to direct/ escort the elderly to the taxi rank.
Thank you for asking their birthday s special.
We used this buffet as a special family celebration lunch, as such it was very nice in general with nice decor, nice friendly staff, and a good food choice. The only obvious area of improvement was the roast beef. It was blood red under cooked, and the person carving gave tiny portions, and whilst you could ask him for more, he should have asked the customer how much we wanted. In comparison, we recently came back from a cruise holiday, and the buffet was far superior with quality and size.
Always good value and the range of food for a Buffet is wonderful, however this time teh Prawns were not up tp Standard as they were small, not fresh looking and were not fresh with a little odour so need to ensure that the seafood is always the freshest or plumpest otherwise they should be sent back to the supplier and explained to patrons why there is No (type) of seafood
Looked after well by Fay and Skye. Food was tasty and nicely presented. Did have trouble finding the restaurant within the casino complex as the maps at the touch screen info points were hard to understand.
Although the food is amazing, the price is very expensive and there is no way I would have eaten $125 worth of food.
The setting and presentation was fabulous
i have dined here on 3 occasions and found the food to be below avarage this time. the meat was over cooked and greasy, the curries were terrible. and the oysters this time round were not tasty or creamy. very dissapointed at this over priced lunch. i will not be returning.
Elegant environment but not the all class experience we had hoped for
Waiters forgot drink orders spent more time chatting between themselves than the customers cleaned plates didn’t replace cutlery
You would expect a bit more attention
I went for lunch for my birthday, the food was beautiful.
My son brought me here for my 50th Birthday. He is only 16 so it was very special. We loved the service the views the look of the place and the way the food was set out. The deserts were amazing especially the fondue.Theres also plenty of fresh fruit if you’re not into sweets. There was such a large variety of food and the seafood was so fresh. Can’t wait to go back
We booked for my Mum’s 70th birthday and stated this at the time of booking. We got a nice table but there was no acknowledgement of it being a special occasion. Food was good, especially if you enjoy variety and desserts.
The service was terrible. We waited 20 minutes before we were even offered a glass of water and regularly had to ask for more. When provided with feedback both during and at the end of the meal the senior staff did not seem to care and just shrugged.
The atmosphere was good. The service was exceptional. Danielle was our waitress. She was attentive but not overbearing. She was always there when you needed her and was very pleasant in her manner. Thank you Danielle. The buffet was extensive with something for all tastes. The vegetarian choices were numerous and extremely tasty. Our group have a wonderful time and we will certainly return. An experience well worth the cost.
Friendly.well groomed staff only too happey to help out customers
Best food in Town by far
Food is beautiful at the conservatory, but I would have preferred to see more options available for the vegans in our party.
Thanks for a lovely afternoon for my sister’s Bridal Tea.
Great place, good food, simply over priced
