    Expensive lunch, being charged $18 on sparkling water when there were only 2 of us. We weren't given a whole bottle, the water was only half glass full and the waitress has only come top up once. After our plates were being cleared off the table, we ordered some coffee, the staff then came over asked if we have ordered our food (?) which left us in confusion. The staff were too busy to bring us the bill and when we went up to the counter to pay, we weren't shown the bill but the eftpos machine. Overall the experience is quite disappointing and unprofessional.

    Service was attentive and courteous. However food quality was appealing. Club sandwich bread was soggy and filling was bland. Lobster roll was very boring. Salad was fresh though.

    The food was very different to any other high tea I have attended.. some really good flavours... the chicken sandwich bread tasted a bit dry or stale and I had a huge piece of grizzle in the chicken... bit surprising.... the service was professional however the language skills were limited and very hard to understand plus when it came to paying the bill the hostess could not add up 2 x $125 without a calculator and still got it wrong... simple maths... she got her supervisor to come and sort it for her... that was dissappointing and surprising in such a high class establishment.... we attended for a special birthday event to tick off my bucket list and totally surprised by the level of service overall... I also expected better views of the harbour (over opera house) but only got a ship ....

    The Living Room is a perfect eating destination for the ambience, and the view towards the Heads, the Opera House and Circular Quay. Food was ordered a la carte, and though the servings were on the small side, this suited us for lunch. We also booked two glasses of French champagne to be served on arrival through OpenTable, but when the bill was presented, the price of the drinks at the restaurant was higher than the price booked online. Unfortunately, no concession was given for this discrepancy.

    The view was excellent, we had a perfectly clear day and the service was great. There was no parents room for our baby but the staff prepared a table in another room for us to use. The food was average, we had the afternoon high tea but it came in separate plates and not on a tiered platter as expected. There was also no particular specialty tea varieties or much choice other than the regular green and black tea, and coffee. The bread on the sandwiches were also slightly dry as if they had been left out all day (we ate at 3pm). For the expensive price point, I was expecting better presentation and maybe one more serving of something savoury to balance. The kids meals were decent but it would of been nice to have a kids high tea menu as well instead of ordering it a la carte.

    The comfortable chairs gives a more relaxing atmosphere which I really liked, and views of the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge made it more special. The staff were kind and friendly, and the food was also good! My favorite was the Sydney Rock Oysters and the salads! I was also surprised by the price, it wasn’t that expensive considering the location!

    Food and service was good but the location is at the lobby and reception. If you enjoy having a meal whist people walk around you, shout to their significant others and kids run around, this is the place for you. It’s like having a meal in the middle of Sydney central train station.

    Great venue right on Sydney Harbour. Food choice good at reasonable prices. Service on this day couldn't have been better. It really makes a difference to your experience. Sun was shining, plenty of people about, so was a great day to have a leisurely lunch & a drink. The Park Hyatt seldom disappoints.

    I dined in the Living Room today with my family and wanted to provide feedback in the hopes the staff will do better in their customer service. The food was delicious but the whole experience was so disappointing I would never go again or recommend the place and ruined what was meant to be a nice lunch out. We waited 50 mins for our food and watched others who arrived after us receive their food. Only after we asked did they say they would check. At no point did anyone check in with us even though we were clearly waiting and we did not receive a satisfactory response or apology. To just tell us to focus on enjoying the meal was condescending and infuriating. We were told our docket didn’t reach the kitchen which is a pretty terrible excuse but again the fact no one even checked in or said anything is poor. When we went to pay no one apologised and we saw the people who served us walk away to leave another unrelated server to take care of our bill. Clearly they were ignoring or avoiding us. For a high end hotel, the complete lack of customer service was surprising and disappointing. Please pass the feedback on so customer service in the Living Room can improve.
