Good food, however on the pricey side.

The service and food were great. I booked through the fork and had 50% off the food bill. It was a great menu, it would be nice to see other options on the entree menu.

Food was amazing - especially the steak and the soufflé (wow!) The atmosphere was great. Service was good, could have improved in terms of filling up water when serving food Really enjoyed the service by Claude

It was my son's birthday and he chose Garden Court as a central location. The welcome was warm and friendly. Claude, our waiter had a great sense of humour and was attentive but not in our faces. The food was simply beautifully cooked and presented and so very tasty. Even better it was real value for money with a Wednesday evening 50% off food voucher. A very special highlight was the lovely, complimentary dessert tasting platter that was totally unexpected for the birthday boy. Really topped it off. Thanks Team!

My husband and I went there for Valentine's Day dinner. We sat down and waited 15 minutes before we were asked whether we want tap, still or sparkling water. Then we had to wait another 10 minutes for the water to arrive. We had to wait a long time for each course to arrive. Entree of scallops was so so. Portion was small. My husband ordered the cod for main and it was so fishy that he couldn't eat it. I had the duck breast and it was very chewy. They need to have more staff to help out. Dessert was shared and again, portion was small and didn't taste nice.

I would like to address how disappointing our dining experience was on the evening of 14Th February 2020, and sent this feedback more as a form of complain versus a Review. The night of 14Th of February, should have been a special night for everyone that decided to have their Valentines dinner at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth . Been part of the Accor Collection of Luxury Hotels, I truly relied on this venue to impress my Valentine and turn the night into something especial for both of us, However, had the opposed affect ,turning the Valentine’s dinner experience into a frustrating event, I’m very disappointed as a guest and as an Accor member to have witness such level of bad service delivered on the night. To start there was not enough waiters’ staff for the number of guests on the evening, they all seem very lost, and had no experience. Everyone went trough long periods of time with no food on the table, when looking at other tables everyone was waiting for food. We had to wait over 3 hours for the main meal, and got served before the people next to us that had arrived 30 minutes earlier then us, there was no leadership or sense of organization.( Very disappointing). The next day when checking my banking, I notice that I was charge twice for the meal, so I had to ring the bank to request a cancellation, seriously?? As you may appreciate, I would have to consider using this venue again, or recommend to anyone I know. I’m sure that you will have similar reviews from everyone that visit the restaurant that evening. I suggest that you review your F & B offer and restaurant service moving forward. Kind Regards.

Great food, friendly staff. But that’s it!! Everything was late, mains arrived at 10:00pm and got the order confused. We waited 10 min to be served when we arrived. Our table wasn’t ready, they weren’t aware that I made the booking with Valentine’s Day menu. No candle, no rose, while all other tables had them. Removing my plate while my partner still eating. Live band stopped playing half way through our dinner and no other music played for at least half an hour.

Most disappointing. My wife and I booked in for the Valentines dinner including wine. We ordered some pre dinner drinks and they were delivered promptly. We then waited about 10 minutes for our order to be taken. We both ordered the same meals. The entree arrived at 7.50 pm however we did not receive our entree wine until I asked for it. We then had to wait 1.5 hours for our main to arrive. (The duck). We were located near the entrance with three other tables. We all waited the same amount of time for our main course.. It was obvious that the tables at the far end of the restaurant were given the priority. The restaurant Manager had no clue how to run a restaurant. We finally left the restaurant and 1050 pm. The Manager apologised as we were leaving. The worst service I have ever had in any restaurant in Australia or around the world. We will not be returning.

We walked out after waiting over one hour for drink and food. Appalling service. Service was dreadful. Had to ask for wine list and then waitress never returned. Noted that same bad service for many others. Our evening was spoiled. Matre dean apologized and sent one hour later a bottle of wine to our room.

My experience at the Garden Court Restaurant on Friday 7 February was exceptional. My stay of 2 nights in the Luxury Hotel with access to Coub Sofitel was more than I had hoped for. The food, service and atmosphere in the beautiful restaurant was a highlight. Thank you so much to the waitstaff - all of whom were attentive and encouraging - the food! Twice cooked cheese souffle with truffle was magnificent - the steak perfectly cooked to my medium-rare instruction -complimented by recommended wines - and the gateau to finish off. I would totally recommend this restaurant. Buffet breakfast on both mornings, I chose to sit in the quieter atmosphere of the Culb Sofitel - was extremely generous and full of variety . I cannot wait to return. Thank you so much to all the staff!
