Absolutely woeful. Sandwiches were stale,scones dry and disappointing and service abrupt and unhelpful. We didn't get our tea until well after the food was finished-and it was meant to be high tea. Even then the staff made us feel like it was an inconvenience. The...More

The view is worth everything here. I went with my 2 very good friends Sam and Kas for our monthly 'something classy and different to do' for a 3pm High Tea on Saturday 6th April. The service is very good and friendly but the food...More

I was invited to a champagne high tea at the American Club Syd and my first impression as I walked in was the panoramic, breathtaking view from the window where we were seated. When the food arrived it was simple and nothing spectacular from most...More

The high tea food was very poor, waited almost an hour and a half for it to arrive at the table and there was very limited selection, tiny portions and only a few tiers between about 15 people. The coffee was very average also (I...More

Food average instead of sandwiches that were advertised given these 2 small bread rolls that tasted stale a big let down.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
