The only thing that may be concerning is the seating arrangements for larger parties. The sofas are comfortable but awkward when reaching for food at the low tables that accompany the sofas. The smaller 2 people seating chairs are much more practical and comfortable in that sense.

We booked this for our first Anniversary. The food was very nice, however the service was incredibly inattentive, tables weren't getting cleared after the high tea for new customers, it was an effort to get the attention of staff, and we saw this from a number of frustrated tables, as a whole not a very good experience. There were plenty of staff on for the number of guests so I would put it down to poor management and training. I have seen it much better in lower end cafe's.

The food was absolutely delicious and a good variety provided. Staff were very attentive and friendly and the pianist was perfect in the background. Absolutely planning on coming back and have already recommended your afternoon tea to friends. Thank you for a fabulous Sunday afternoon.

The high tea was amazing! The food was lovely and you could tell the food was hand-crafted. The food was even replenished; which was extremely thoughtful of the staff! The nice young man (didn’t get his name, however he was tall and spoke some French) provided a wonderful service. The occasion we were celebrating (graduation) was taken into consideration, and the young man made a plate of cakes with ‘congratulations’ written on the plate. The dining room was beautiful and the price was very reasonable. We really enjoyed it and we will be back! Thanks so much! :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our Terracotta Warriors high tea. The atmosphere in Sofi’s Lounge is always calm and relaxing and we all adored listening to the pianist. The staff were fabulous and so wonderful with children. The food was delicious (especially loved the sticky beef and the sandwiches) and we look forward to dining at the Sofitel again soon.

The food and drinks for the Asian infused high tea were fantastic. The atmosphere was also great because of the person on the piano.p and the special performance by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra String Quartet..

Absolutely loved this high tea! The finger sandwiches were so fresh. Mary came by to check on us and top up the bubbles. I will definitely return to celebrate any special occasions.

A most beautiful afternoon celebrating our friend's birthday. We all felt spoilt by the personal yet professional service, delicious food, sparkling wine, unlimited tea and coffee as we drifted through the afternoon with lovely tunes on the piano that bought back memories. Perfect!
