Foods were very average for Luna New Year rate, which is not much different to normal day buffet, there were not variety of food each cusine. Also, we had few unfresh oyster which were very stinky.
The staff were friendly and quick but when the restaurant got busier, i had to stand up yo get cutleries, napkin, water myself.
Apart from a beautiful restaurant with view, my dinning experience was very disappointing unfortunately.
I’ve been here a few times and love the food and location. It was our first time for high tea celebrating a baby shower. I’ve found the service was a bit of let down this time. No one came to grab our drinks order and had to ask a few times . Plus had to ask twice for same item as it was forgotten. Waitress was taking away our food at 4.35pm saying high tea was until 5pm. True but still 25 min to go. As I said I love this place and the food is stunning, just unlucky with the service this time
Lovely dining experience. Great seafood bar that was always full of food! Yummy hot food options, although I’d mainly go for the seafood and the great dessert selection! Service was wonderful and you pay for an awesome dining experience too. Very lovely and enjoyable. Will be back!
Good food in nice setting - but still just an up market noisy buffet. We had a disappointing table - if I went again I’d book early and get a window table. That would make it worthwhile. - but otherwise I wouldn’t bother.
The only part of the service that was special was the service provided by the waiter, he was friendly, professional and provided a good service.
The food was not the greatest, all hot food was dried out and sad looking. Not very appetising to look at and cold. I was very disappointed with the overall food this visit and most likely won’t return sadly.
Buffet was amazing. Was able to try various foods that I would not normally eat
Had Jen to service our table and she was an absolute gun ... extremely professional and helpful
A lovely lunchtime dining experience with a large variety of different foods, attentive and friendly wait staff in a modern & comfortable dining room with city and river views.
Food, setting and service.
I found the entire experience delightful! The atmosphere, decor, service and food were beautiful! I loved the fresh seafood, muscle curry salad, baked salmon and the shiny purple pear cake. Totally delicious!!! Buffet is not usually the style of dining I would choose but this is exceptional. An absolute delight :)
I have been lucky enough to go to The Conservatory many time.
Taking my 16 god-daughter for lunch was something special.
Good food and replenished where necessary. Service good and staff around the tables exceptional.
food was very good
staff were very high standard
good value for money
Disappointed with the lack of culturally diverse food. Chicken in mushroom sauce was cold and I had to inform the chef. This is unacceptable for an establishment charging $100+pp. Duck pancakes were mediocre, the duck tasted old, not heated properly and not crispy. Lack of cutlery on tables and we had to keep asking for plates to be taken away. Not worth the money. This buffet used to be good but frankly needs to get a serious update. Desserts looked nice but lacked in flavour and quality.
I asked to be given a view and we were given an amazing view , it was the start of my daughters wedding celebrations with her bridesmaids and it was absolutely beautiful. Amazing food and service and the ambience was perfect with magnificent views, highly recommend . It was a wonderful memorable day.
Lower score because my initial booking stated birthday function and this wasn't acknowledged. We didn't get the window view requested either. We had a vegan/gluten free request that was also forgotten. Past experience did acknowledge these facts upon arrival which took my booking more seriously reflecting our special event and diet concerns.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented particularly the deserts
Lovely restaurant with good views and if you love seafood you will love this buffet but unfortunately I am not a seafood lover and therefore I thought there could be a bit more of an international dishes.
Was a little busy at one point and difficult to get to things but apart from that great selection of food especially when we don't eat seafood which is clearly a big drawcard considering the seafood piled plates of some guests we saw. Service was excellent. Wait staff were really attentive and friendly.
Great for a get together party of 7 for lunch extremely satisfied been there a few times and will visit again
Leisurely,friendly, quality, enjoyable.
Can get a better meal for half the price with better service.
Booked a reservation at the Conservatory for a birthday lunch and was informed by staff that you get a complimentary drink and chocolate. Staff were absolutely lovely and friendly, service overall was excellent. The food was delicious, but would prefer perhaps a wider range of food options.
Great food large quantity variety great service
Highly recommend dining at the Conservatory for dinner or lunch. A large variety of food whether it is entree, main and dessert. The buffet food is very well presented and set out in a way that customers have plenty of room to choose what they want to eat. Lovely seafood, meats, pasta, Indian, soups, cheeses, etc.
You will have a wonderful few hours digesting and drinking.
Lovely ambiance and the food was delicious!
While the setting was lovely and the savoury food and scones were delicious, the desserts were disappointing. For the price you pay for everyone over 12 years, it is quite an expensive outing and not worth the money.
Amazing selection of gourmet food with the seafood being the standout
Lovely, classy and beautiful scenic environment.
Made me feel very happy.
The food was fabulous catering for everyone's tastes. However the service was lacking. After our initial drinks order, we were neglected other than asked once if we would like water. We had to ask twice for a lemon/water bowl to clean hands after shelling prawns. Finally we were able to get one by asking another waitress who was not serving our table. Cutlery was not replaced and again we had no contact with our designated waiter for replacements.
Food are fresh especially seafood. The variety of hot dishes kinda limited.
We were happy with the overall experience however majority of the seafood had no taste as it had been frozen. We were happy with the array of dishes to choose from and the entree bar was particularly good.
Highly recommended, enjoyed the experience a Quality buffet!
The seafood especially the prawns were not fresh, the quality was not up to standard with the amount of money I paid. I was very surprised that there were no lobsters, and the scallops had been chopped into small pieces, how penny pinching it was! In addition, the variety of food was very limited. I am extremely disappointed with the food!
This is my second time at conservatory, I took my mother for our belated Christmas lunch, none of the seafood was fresh, oysters were inedible. We are both not feeling to well today so was quite disappointed and ill from our overpriced Christmas lunch especially when drinks are not included. I will not be returning.
Absolutely incredible! Will definitely be coming back!
Christmas Eve Dinner. Food was good but service, ambience was poor. The experience was very underwhelming and was not worth the $800 it cost. Upon complaint I receive as expected average reply.
Great place for Christmas Eve lunch. Food is of great quality and a higher range for a high end Buffett. Have been a few times now and it’s always a lively pleasant place with great service.
My partner and I celebrated our 8th anniversary, and dined here for dinner. We had never been to Conservatory before, and we found the food to be excellent for a buffet. A chef was even nice enough to go through each dish with my partner for a nut allergy.
We were also lucky enough to have breakfast included in our stay. The breakfast buffet was very busy and a less relaxed vibe. We had to wait for a table, even though we were hotel guests. The food however was still exceptional.
