Vast improvement from our previous visit. Management and staff have taken on board our suggestions and implemented the changes. Well done to all involved, Sofi's lounge is back to the level it should always be

Our Mothers' Day High Tea booking was unintentionally changed, but once I notified the Hotel, staff were completely obliging and rectified the situation immediately. We were greeted with a smile from all staff who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Thank you to the Sofi's Lounge team on Mothers' Day, in particular Grant.

Our group of 22 were welcomed following our tour and enjoyed all that was provided. Grant did a great job explaining food when delivered, offered additional as students ate well. Sandwiches were beautifully made and very fresh and sweet items were also very appealing and of a very high standard.

A great experience, food and service was wonderful. Could not find any faults. Would recommend to anyone. In the past 2 years I have dined at different locations around Melbourne for high tea. This was our favourite location. It is lovely sitting on a couch enjoying high tea

I felt like the waiter, Kevin, was not particularly attentive. Not at one point did he offer a drink or for us to buy a cappuccino. I found it extremely hard to catch his attention. When I did catch his attention it was towards the very end to get our tea which was included. We would have missed out had I not advised him.

We have been to Sofi's Lounge high tea several times and this time we had an enjoyable time, however the price has increased, but there seems to be less variety of food on offer. Previously there seemed to be more savoury food on offer. The freshly made crepes are no longer there, instead there is some rolled up crepes that are dry. Our seats/lounge was uncomfortable. One lounge was angled downwards so who ever sat on that side just could not sit comfortably. 4 of us offered the Signature tea and instead of getting our own pots, there was one big one given which made it hard as we were not sitting together so had to pass the big pot and strainer down the table. Service was good, ambiance was nice. We appreciated the special birthday plate with sweets and a candle. Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon.

I’ve been to high tea at Sofi’s a number of times and have recommended it to family and friends. The food, service and atmosphere is always lovely and it’s a great way to spend an afternoon with friends/family.

Rey disappointed with the service, found it to be extremely poor. We weren’t offered a drink at the start or looked after very well. Variety and choice of food was very poor compared to other places that offer High Tea like the Windsor Hotel. Based on this experience it was a total waste of money.

For the past 15 years whenever we have visited Melbourne (we are from Queensland), we have always made time for High Tea at the Sofitel on the week-end. This was one of our highlights and we told anyone who was visiting Melbourne to make time to go. In our opinion, world wide, Melbourne Sofitel used to be one of the best. It was far superior than the Sydney or Brisbane Sofitel. This time, well, it was nice but it was not of the same standard as before. The service and ambience was great but the food, whilst it was nice and we appreciate the complexity of some of the cakes, well... it wasn't the same standard taste-wise as previously. There also appeared to be less to choose from. It reminded us of some of the other renowned Melbourne High Teas that are all glamour and popularity but low on sophisticated taste. On the plus side, the scones and crepes were nice along with the chicken dish in the little pot. I loved the nice selection of teas and my partner enjoyed the coffee. It's just some of the food ... eh... well... go back to your recipes 3 to 8 years ago and you'll see what I mean.

Air conditioner was too cold and made our experience not very pleasant. Prefer to have larger quarters of sandwiches and not as many cakes. Not sure that we will ever do this experience ever again.
