What a wonderful time we had celebrating my friends special birthday. The food was amazing, staff were very attentive and they made us feel very special. I would highly recommend a high tea experience at the Soirée at Wentworth.

An early dinner in the Sofitel’s bar / restaurant. The service was great and the food as expected when eating in a hotel bar. Portion sizes were big even for entrees. Excellent hotel to stay in also.

We were celebrating birthday over High Tea. Staff were very friendly when we arrived. Once our food were delivered to the table, we could not see the staff to ask for more tea or coffee. A little disappointed with the tea range but overall good were nice.

The gin High Tea did not taste of gin. We found an after taste in the jam amd in the jelly of the singapore sling. We were a bit disappointed.

As discussed with your manager George, the service was abysmal. Everything we asked for had to Be requested at least twice.. and some, like re-filled teapots.. never came at all. Even the bill had to be requested twice. Thanks for the discount..we WON'T be back... and neither will any of our friends. To add insult to injury nothing tasted of gin at all...false marketing!!

We all were very disappointed with our high tea experience. The scones were so old, hard & stale I couldn't eat them. I noticed another table actually sent their scones back. The "fresh" sandwich was dry on the outside as though it had been made hours before & left out uncovered. It was supposed to have been a cucumber, sprout, cream cheese & avocado sandwich, but ours had no sprouts or avocado. No one came near us once we were served & we even had to go & serve ourselves to more water.

Booked for the Gin High tea and was disappointed it was only in the main bar area. Service was polite but it would have been nice to have been talked through what the food was. Not impressed for the price that one of the gin cocktails wasn't included as well. Wouldn't recommend this experience to others for the value of what you got.

Loved the vegan high tea and really appreciate that this is an option. I thought the atmosphere was a little underwhelming - the lounge is too open to the rest of the hotel and wasn't private enough. The staff were all great but there was no card indicating what each item was and the server didn't tell us what was what. One of the items, we think it was the cannelés, were barely edible. Tough and not very pleasant tasting. The sandwiches, panini and scone were particularly delicious.

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.

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 ?
