Came for the gin high tea - lovely tower of food and tea. Great service by all staff that looked after us and even a couple of complimentary G&Ts as we were there for my partner’s birthday. Great afternoon, thanks!

I was a little disappointed that the Vegan High tea was held in the Lobby, it was cute but not quite the ambiance I was hoping for. The food was hit or miss, the clotted cream and jam were amazing but some of the other pastries and food werent as good as I know vegan pastries can be (ie the scone was quite dry). The service was quite nice and I appreciate that they have a vegan high tea option, but I dont think this hotel is the best place for high tea in general! Also I dont know who typed my name into the system but this is the most egregious mistyping of my name -- kind of odd given that I booked via email and its a high end hotel which should be focused on these little things.

Whenever my friend visits from interstate, we always meet at Soiree for afternoon tea. It's always beautifully presented, the flavours and quality are excellent, and the service, polite, efficient and friendly. It's our go-to - always!

Most disappointing Hightea ever. Sandwiches were below average, with stale bread. Scones were dry and old and had to be sent back. Did not receive all items on the menu, very little variety and the dishes we did receive were all not very tasty or tasted 3 days old. Was given a super dirty tea glass. Would like my money back and want to email them next week. Have been to many highteas, this was the worst.

We had the most wonderful time enjoying the Archibald High Tea. The food was stunning and the gluten free option was fabulous too. The service was absolutely charming and our two children thoroughly enjoyed it too. We will be back!

We visited for a Vegan High tea on a Saturday afternoon. The high tea was delicious but I did feel the service was lacking. In arrival we waited for over 5 minutes to be shown to our reserved table. We were served quickly but gauchly after that. The tables were not cleared even after we ordered cocktails which were very good. Perhaps there were too few staff to deal with the number of people on the day or perhaps staff were new but a bit more attention to service is needed.

We enjoyed a lovely vegan high tea at the Soiree at Sofitel Wentworth. This is a review of the vegan high tea only. The food was very good, we especially enjoyed the apple filled puff pastry, the chocolate cake, the scones, the dairy-free whipped cream. Tea selection was quite good too, with unusual varieties. We take away a star though for a couple of reasons. First is that they ran out of vegan cream cheese, which is on the menu and we were looking forward to this. Would have appreciate a closer substitute to this than avocado. Also, some of the sandwiches were on the "healthy" side, such as grain bread with lots of veggies, would have been nice to balance it with some vegan cheese. Vegan doesn't always mean veggies or healthy ;) Even cucumber + dairy free butter on white bread would be lovely. Still very impressed at the effort they have put in and enjoyed it very much. Service was okay, when I arrived before my friend, the server looked confused and pointed at our booked table instead of walking me to it. She followed along after I started walking to it. We interacted with her a couple of other times and she was nice, but very awkward seemed new or like she was filling in for a position she doesn't normally do. A more senior woman who served us our food was excellent though, very knowledgeable. Atmosphere is also very nice, quiet and smells great, the perfume they use around the hotel smells very authentically french. Overall a very good experience and would return. We hope the Sofitel continue to offer this vegan high tea and consider offering different variations in the future.

Hosted a drinks reception at the Soire bar and the staff were absolutely amazing! From Craig to Mel to the bar staff they were incredibly professional and nothing was too much! Thank you for helping me run such a great event!

For a hotel to present a high tea of such a low standard is unacceptable. You need to address staff training and present the food in a manner which represents 'high tea'

I would have really preferred the normal high tea rather than the Archibald as i had a child with me. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. Where we supposed to get tickets to the Archibald exhibition with the high tea ?

The high tea was nice however felt pre made. For example the scones were cold and when asked for them to be warmed up tasted stale afterwards. There wasn’t much savoury dishes and felt cold like it had been refrigerated and not made fresh.

Made a booking on the morning of the 30th for a high tea for 5 people. Received a confirmation via email. Upon arrival I was told they could not find any booking, I showed her the email confirmation and she said that she didn't have any booking and we had to prompt her to further investigate. We were told it was too busy for the chef so we were not accommodated. She told us that bookings are not to be made within 24 hours which i didnt see on the website at the time, yet I made a booking and it was confirmed. This was for a birthday and you can imagine our disappointment upon learning this. However we were not offered any solution or offered a seat in the restaurant (which was mainly empty) for lunch We were told by the hostess she doesn't know who to talk to so she can't deal with it. We asked for a a manager and she wandered around, talked to someone in the bar, came back and we were told that there was nothing that could be done. Her attitude was very disappointing, she was almost bored and lethargic. She has no remorse, nothing was offered in terms of a solution. She was very dismissive and even shrugged her shoulders at us. Would not recommend and would not return

Tried to call and book but was told No. booked online instead. Food was sensational as always. My only small complaint was the rounded chairs are uncomfortable so it was hard to relax. One of the cloth chairs would have been much nicer.

Lack of staff, the food was definitely not 5 star comparing the nearby Intercon and Sir Stamford.
