Lovely setting, attentive but not intrusive staff, great food. Had the steak and would have appreciated a vegetable with it, not just potato! But entree, steak and dessert were delicious.

The high tea was lovely, as were the staff. Felt it would be nice to have the menu or food explained as well as a list of drinks that were available, rather than guessing

We have enjoyed the Fireplace restaurant a number of times. last night we were with some longstanding friends from Sydney. The food was excellent. Very rarely do I order steak, but the flavour of the redgum fire is unique, and each mouthful was delicious. We had a selection of pasta dishes, with the seafood linguini ---mouthwatering.
Our waiter Sam was attentive, personality plus, a great sense of humour, and helped make our night. People like Sam are a credit to themselves, and to the restaurant.
This restaurant is expensive, but for a special night is well worth it.

The sweet food on the high tea selection were great. The savory were not as good and need to be improved. We were seated close to an area where chefs were constantly preping food for the next service; this really put a damper on the atmosphere and was like sitting in a busy kitchen.

We had the High Coffee and while the food was quite nice, the wait times for drink service was incredibly slow. We ordered additional drinks (champagne was included) and each time it took nearly 30 minutes to arrive. It just wasn't busy enough to justify that kind of wait and I think it was mainly due to the staff completely forgetting to place the order.

High Tea was divine. Gorgeous bites, classy and elegant. Potentially one or two more savouries would have just balanced out all the sweetness a little better.

The food was lovely... I just like a little more savoury than the amount they had as it was predominantly sweet treats.
The service was fantastic! One of the girls (Brooke) was extremely hospitable, and everyone showed warmth and were friendly to us.

Have had High Tea here a number of times and it never disappoints. The quality and quantity of food is amazing - they even supply boxes so that you can take your left overs home for later. The menu changes regularly too so I have never had the same food. Highly recommend.

We have been to the fireplace many times, unfortunately the last few times it has seemed to have gone backwards. The food was extremely average, the steak was dry very disappointing.
