Easy booking via OpenTable and very welcoming hosts and waiter. Some of Sydney has just gone into covid lockdown, so we had a lot of space and could easily have a quiet conversation. Food was fantastic and novel. Waiters went out of their way to make our anniversary dinner memorable.

Kudos to our table server Rashay (hope I spelt his name correctly - if not apologies), he was excellent. It was my wife's birthday and all staff who we interacted with wished he a happy birthday - thank you (you may think about a complimentary glass of bubbly for those having a birthday "and prove it").

Our only concern was the price - we felt it was a tad expensive and not value for money in that regard but the view, well, that is priceless.

My wife and I visited the Hydro Majestic for the first time to celebrate her birthday with a high tea lunch. We started with the history tour which was quite an interesting narrative of the long development of the hotel from the start over 100 years ago - well worth experiencing. The food was well presented and great tasting. The view was spectacular!

Dinner at the Wintergarden was excellent. Although the menu is small the food presentation is beautiful and the taste and quality is truly first class. However the way the menu with the wine companions is written is messy and hard to read. I chose the wagu main and I read the menu thinking it said it was "slowcooked" however, when the the dish arrived there were 3 slices of very tough steak, which I could not cut with my knife. I gave the steak to my son who enjoyed it. The slow cooked wagu on the side was fabulous. Just wish the menu was clearer.

High Tea at the Wintergarden is a great way to experience the historic Hydro Majestic without having to be a hotel guest. The huge windows looking out to the panorama of valley and escarpment is beautiful. However, one only gets the best experience of this if seated near windows. But walking in you get the grandeur. And the room is one of yester year.
The high tea menu is a lovely combo of savoury and sweet and they do their best to meet diet intolerances/allergies. Its a worthwhile thing to do in the mountains.

Food was not amazing, a bit average. Coffees were quite below average and ours were served lukewarm. Although the ambience was beautiful, grand setting and amazing views. Piano playing was a bit loud for my preference. Staff kept hovering us taking our plates as soon as we were finished with each one which was a bit annoying.

Wintergarden was a lovely venue to celebrate Mum's 83rd birthday. The view is beautiful, the High Tea (both Wintergarden and Eastern) were great - lots of variety, beautifully presented morsels to have with your tea, coffee and champagne. Very leisurely with non intrusive service. It felt special.

The Winter Garden High Tea experience was a perfect way to celebrate a dear friends birthday. Firstly, the service was impeccable, and this sets the scene for a relaxed but very special event. We enjoyed breath taking views whilst sipping champagne (the aus sparkling wine was a very good choice) and enjoying the sumptuous High Tea, which was delectable. The tables are large and comfortable and the ambience is a delight especially with the live pianist's perfect performance. This event cannot be missed if you are heading to the Mountains. Ample parking is available too and make sure you get lots of photos in the foyer area. Rest rooms are top notch too. So plan to arrive at least 15 mins before your time slot to enjoy that insta opportunity.

We booked a birthday dinner, mid-week, expecting a fine dining experience. Despite a near empty dining room, we were seated immediately next to one of the few diners already in the room, which also happened to be located adjacent to the waiters service area. When we asked to be moved to a better position, the waitress reluctantly showed us to another table and them became moody when serving us.
The food was ok, although it had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp or similar, we ordered fish, which was quite dry and uninteresting. Given the price level of the restaurant, we were really quite dissapointed with the entire experience, spoiling what should have been a celebratory night.

We loved our High Tea! The service and staff were outstanding, the Wintergarden is quite beautiful but being so large was rather noisy on the day we visited. The food was stunning, we could not find anything negative to say. Just from an atmosphere point of view I prefer the Lilianfelse. But that's just my personal preference.

Amazing view and location, beautiful hotel and good service but the quality of the food was really not to the level excepted given the grandeur, price and reputation of the hotel.

The sandwiches were average, the dumplings etc also very average/blend, the scones dry and airy and jam and cram not if high quality. Some of the cakes petit fours etc were quite good but overall the food was disappointing.

It was absolutely beautiful to sit in such a grand room with that view. The staff were welcoming and professional. The food looked amazing. The out of tea was perfect.
The scones were not at all nice though, I could not be more disappointed with them. They tasted and felt essentially like bread. Scones are the very essence of high high tea and this must be addressed.

We had a lovely afternoon high tea. We shared the Wintergarden and Eastern high teas, and kids high tea for our girls (aged 4 and 8). Just a suggestion on the kid's sandwiches, I was expecting more kid friendly fillings. I'm not sure how many kids would eat curried egg or smoked salmon. Our fault for not checking beforehand I suppose.

We have experienced high tea at several places around Sydney and interstate and Wintergarden is definitely up there with our favourites. The stunning view provides a perfect backdrop to offer the decadent atmosphere we expected. The service is phenomenal but not intrusive. Special mention goes to Tiffany who not only did an amazing job but with a smile and approach that shows she really loves what she does. The food was of great quality, really tasty and plenty of it. So much that we couldn't finish everything! A perfect mix of savoury and sweet. Just a comment about the noise level of the piano music. We didn't mind the music as it completes the atmosphere. The noise level was way too loud for the venue and we had to ask to move tables because of that, which was accommodated. We appreciate we were then offered a table closer to the view. Overall a really beautiful experience to celebrate our combined birthdays and anniversary. We will definitely be back.

The Wintergarden High Tea experience made for a wonderful birthday treat. From the time we arrived to home time the staff helped create a wonderful memory. Birthday wishes written on my plate was a lovely touch. We shared the usual high tea as well as the eastern delight choice. Both were amazing. Your visit will be a memory to treasure.
