The main room was not in use due to construction work then we were put in the back room which had no atmosphere what so ever & to top it off we had a drunk loud Russian lady which kept staring @ us to the point i asked to move tables & then her credit card declined @ the end of her visit to add to the experience. Little did i know there was a much better vibe in the room next door where the bar is it would have been informative if the staff would have mentioned that we had the option to move in the other room especially when i told the male waiter that i was uncomfortable cause the lady next table was drunk , loud & staring. We would have moved to that room in a heart beat instead my girlfriends first experience @ high tea @ the Langham was a nightmare @ a cost of $200 plus. To top it off a crying baby @ the next table say no more

Had a lovely afternoon tea here to celebrate my mum's 70th, as requested we were sat in a quieter area and the kitchen kindly catered to my partner's unusual food intolerances so he could still enjoy the experience. Many thanks and highly recommended.

It was not as good as expected, we were located at the lounge bar for afternoon tea, food was not as good as expected, too. A bit disappointed. The service was good.

I have intolerance to wheat and cows milk and the Langham were able to provide a high tea that caters for this which is awesome. Unfortunately though the bread was soo dry it was not edible and the scones were soo dense that they were also not edible. Such a shame as the London Langham was very accommodating and I had one of the best high teas there a few years ago.

Booked for a special birthday outing as this is supposed to be the "best" high tea in Sydney. Service was appalling, despite clarifying 3 times which high tea we were having we were brought the wrong one. Sparkling wine was not served, sandwiches were dry and the pies and vol-u-vants seemed like they had been reheated. Very disappointing - I won't be recommending this to anyone, there are much better high tea options in Sydney more reasonable prices. It is far from the best high tea!! The whole experience was very underwhelming.

Lovely time. Just a couple of points:
1. add butter to come with scones
2. More sandwiches less cakes

Noise level from neighbouring table (hens) was a bit too loud.

Hi we have been there many times and loved the place and the food. This time the service was very poor to the point I even had to get up to get the water jug.

Sorry but I was with a client and it annoyed me.

Remy's Bistro at the Langham attracted us because of it's recognized quality of service and ambiance. We were very happy with the decor and appointments of the Langham, however, that's where it stopped. We arrived at 7:30 PM for our Valentine's day dinner. We were quickly seated at a very nice table between two other 2-tops where guests were already dining. Within a few moments we were served a glass of French Champagne, a tasty drink accompaniment and reviewed the menu. Our order for starter and main was taken around 7:45. We waited till 8:35 and called the waiter and asked what happened with our meal? He returned and advised "something had gone wrong and the kitchen didn't receive the order." In the meantime, the guests at the two adjoining tables had left and their used glasses, cutlery and dishes remained on both sides of us. I looked around to see if they were overwhelmed with other patrons, but the room was only about a third full. Our starter arrived about 8:45pm, 1 h 15m after we sat down. The scallops were delicate and tasty. Our mains arrived around 9:05pm. The Barra was very good however my NY Sirloin, recognized to be a bit chewier than a rib-eye, was unfortunately very chewy and not up to my expectations. While we were dining, the plates, glasses, cutlery and food remnants at the 2 adjoining tables remained. Around 9:25pm one of the waiters began a partial removal process of the adjoining tables remnants. After the dessert table we got our bill and left. We were now at the restaurant for nearly 3 hours. Too long. Our waiter was very polite and apologetic but the disappointment was done.

I said I would recommend The Langham again as I believe the restaurant has all the right tools and capabilities but someone needs to oversee the service and prevent "lost orders" while we sat at our tables with nothing for over an hour. Good luck and hope we return on a day when it all runs to plan.

Not enough staff on Valentine's Day so instead of having a nice experience, the staff members were stressed out. Not a good experience and that is the fault of the management for poor planning.

Service was dismal at best. Felt like I had to snap my fingers to get attention.
Tables are stained, silverware was not properly polished. When i pointed this out, the staff just shrugged it off like it was no big deal.
Food was mediocre.

It was lovely from the moment we walked in. Service was terrific, the gluten free option had a great selection and The only thing missing was a little candle for my 2 friends celebrating their birthdays. I understood there would be something a little more special and perhaps should have telephoned to clarify how that would work with the high tea.

Considering I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 30 years what let you down on the day was your minimal meet and greet and your bar flies that perfected the meet and greet from the outset.
Once seated they were our dining buddies.
A request to be relocated after my champagne was undrinkable we moved further away and with our bar fly buddies continuing to be a bother.
We were told by a female staff member that they fly in when the main door is open.
I have managed venues for years operationally across multiple areas of hospitality and are quite familiar with bar flies that love to live in sweet sticky areas.
The bar is near by and residual sticky surfaces, fruit condiments left open in the bar, benches and wet areas not cleaned and dried thoroughly are a breeding ground for bar flies.
We had the privilege of attending Palm Court Langham London earlier this year and was really looking forward to attending Sydneys Langham.
On comparison you are worlds apart.
