    5 Booked Single Private Dining Rooms for Corporate Event event for 15 guests

    Great staff, incredible views and a lovely private room perfect for our event

    Could have done with a bit more space around the table - a buffet breakfast was offered but wasn't really much room for people to walk around

    3.2 Booked Double private dining room for Private Dining event for 32 guests

    The venue is beautiful. The staff were accommodating and friendly.

    The menu was not clear on portion size. It turn out not to be enough food, so we and the staff had to scramble to provide more food for the guests. Also menu choices are restrictive.

    Great service and delicious food.

    Wall partition blocks part of the room so tables need to be arranged to avoid this causing an obstruction.

    5 Booked Single Private Dining Rooms for 30th Birthday Party event for 20 guests

    The view, the staff and the food were all great. Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon/evening.

    Some guy I paid at the bar probably a manager at the iris bar at the top, almost double charged me for the bottle of champagnes I purchased and already paid for that evening without even checking.

    I also found him a bit condescending, as he kept insisting that I hadn’t paid and prior to that was constantly looking over at the area reserved for me that day.

    3.8 Booked Single Private Dining Rooms for 18th Birthday Party event for 30 guests

    The communication was always amazing, clear & thorough. There was never any confusion as to what to expect. The room in itself was absolutely beautiful and was a hit with all guests! The viewing platform was perfect for pictures and getting to the room was very easy with a very kind staff facilitating this process! The staff who attended to us on the day were also very helpful and understanding!

    Booking Contract is extremely strict and leaves no room for flexibility especially when dealing with large numbers who are prone to last minute changes. These changes would not be reflected and would still result in a high fee regardless. Food orders were also mixed up on the actual day.

    4.6 Booked Single Private Dining Rooms for Presentation event for 25 guests

    Iconic location (the views are a big drawer)
    Adequate facilities
    Helpful and attentive staff
    Reasonably priced room

    Noise from tbe event next door - the walls are too thin!
    Catering was great but more expensive than the room
    A/V equipment - expensive to wheel in a tv you could buy for nearly the same price.
