The wonderful management and staff at Sofi's provided patient and consistently warm service in not only bringing our event to pass (with many delays from our side) but were, not to overstate, gratuitous in their hospitality on the day. Bravo and thank you all! Mr & Mrs Varcoe
Excellent customer service and great food too. Staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you
Especially enjoy the hot food.
Waiting a reply from Manager after phone conversation with staff today. 2 Grandma,s took a 9 yr old for high tea Our confirmation voucher states $70 x 2 $40'for child.

However we are not happy about the charges made on the day Please respond
This was our second visit in two weeks and we had a lovely time - really appreciated the little extra treats that were brought out when you heard it was a belated birthday celebration. The scones were a little dry this week but the sandwiches were spectacular and it was a special and delightful experience.
The Service was very good and the pianist sets a very relaxing atmosphere. The sweets are an absolute delight and would highly recommend the Sofi’s Lounge High Tea
My sister and I enjoyed the high tea. The music was nice and the couch very comfortable, we felt so relaxed. The food and the service were great. Will definitely come back. Thank you.
We had a beautiful, relaxing Sunday morning tea at Sofi's Lounge. We were very well looked after and all our needs were met. The staff were very attentive and catered for the pregnant ladies in our party with care, courtesy, understanding and a little extra special attention. It was lovely and more than we expected. Treat yourself to a delicious morning tea in peaceful surroundings.
A wonderful afternoon
Really nice afternoon, great for girl friends to catch up!
Thanks so much. We had an amazing afternoon.
Beautiful high tea with a fantastic selection of hot and cold, savoury and sweet.. Very comfortable couches, exceptional service and relaxed ambiance.
We we’re expecting more of a variety. Sitting 4 people onto one lounge was no conducive to talking with each other and I had asked when booking what the seating configuration would be. We needed to ask the staff several times if we could be topped up on our champagne and a significant delay in ordering 2 drinks. Overall I was disappointed and felt it’s was not a good as my previous visits. I would spend $99 there again. Unfortunately !
Wonderful staff who were very helpful and we appreciated the offer of extra sandwiches if we wanted them - that was very thoughtful. It was a special occasion to celebrate our friend’s 60th birthday and she had a lovely time.
Very friendly staff, good atmosphere. More savoury treats would have been good.
Overall it was very pleasant. The service was very good. Food and drink was good however the desserts option was not that nice on 29th July morning tea.
Very comfort engaging space excellent service
Great afternoon out
The food was delicious. The next time I visit, I wish the soy latte were delicious.
Always a lovely afternoon. Will be back soon
Atmosphere and service was excellent
I gave the afternoon tea to my friend as a gift for her birthday. She was thrilled and told me how much she enjoyed it. Our lovely waiter even provided a candle for the celebration. Thank you so much.
Staff were extremely attentive to our needs, food was amazing and exquisitely presented on three tiered plates. Received a glass of champagne on arrival and were offered alternatives as well. Seating was very comfortable, nearly fell asleep after food as was full and in need of a "nana nap". The atmosphere was very relaxed, with lighting not too harsh, nice way to enjoy a Melbourne Winter's afternoon at the Sofitel in Sofi's Lounge. The only complaint is that the high tea doesn't start until after two, which means we didn't have as much time as we would have liked, felt a little rushed. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
I ordered gluten free and was disappointed with the quality of the food offered. As a coeliacs, I am aware that there are many better options for bread available now. The Sofitel Kitchen needs to research the latest bread available and offer this to their customers. Helgas now have a great gluten free variety available from local supermarkets. There are also bakeries such Black Ruby in Thornbury and Strada in Ivanhoe. A 5 star hotel needs to source better quality gluten free flours also. 'Well and Good'have tasty flour available. Service is always excellent and the ambience is great.
Always a great experience. Thank you
