The mains buffet was very good, but the dessert was a let down
An excellent experience. Would totally recommend this
Great high tea. A good selection of high quality tea. Great food. Very knowledgeable staff that made the experience fantastic.
Always enjoy taking the team to Whitby
Food was ok except the beef was tough as boots. Also there was only one cheese on the cheeseboard by the time we went for dessert.
Thank you for organising everything for our 25+ members.
A bit expensive for what it is
Handled allergy concerns really well, phoning me and providing safe and yummy substitutions. The waiter was clear, knowledgeable, remembering to point out the substitutions and generally pleasant. He also took great photos of the family and high tea for us by his own initiative.
Service was absolutely spectacular. The waitress was very attentive. Food was well presented and A+++ for taste. Will be back thank you
Enjoyed our time, staff was friendly and easy to communicate with about booking. Thank you, I highly recommend Whiby's Restaurant & Bar for Buffet food. Reasonably price also.
Always a pleasure dining at Whiby's... friendly and helpful staff and the food is just yummy!
Whitby's is a great Buffet restaurant, so consistent with super friendly and helpful staff. We always go to Whitby's when in Wellington (we're from Christchurch). For a special treat try the High Tea... just sit back and relax and enjoy the yummy food!
Always enjoy dining at Whitby's, it's our family go-to restaurant for special occasions, as it is more expensive than others
Nice place for a family dinner
We wish to extend a sincere and grateful thank you for the level of service provided overall. The pre-dinner service provided in helping us to co-ordinate and plan the celebration was impressive and a big thank you to Rosa who was consistently obliging with information and updates as a barrel-load of questions were asked of her. The meal was outstanding. Many buffet dinners previously frequented at other properties, inevitably diminish in terms of presentation and freshness as the night progresses. However, in this instance Whitby's buffet was outstanding and "beautiful" - as described by many of our party. Exceptional mention is saved for the Piano Bar staff - in particular, Hasti (bar manager - my apologies for the incorrect spelling). Your obliging and accommodating service was noted by all as was the professional and friendly conversation many shared with you all. Some even noted the finger tapping as some of our crowd performed a Maori waiata to the birthday girl. Additonally, your initiative was stand-out and we were most grateful you allowed us to arrange seating and monopolize a corner of the bar for our birthday toasts and cake. Thank you Whitby team. We'lle be sure to share your stand-out service and meal and hope we get opportunity to visit again
Great food and experience.
This was great place to take a big family for a 70th - great for kids and adults alike.....heaps of variety - YUMMY value for money for sure. Small hiccup with booking time despite having confirmed via email and phone but they were able to accomodate us none the less. Definitely will be returning !! thanks again WHITBYS xox
Really enjoyed the quality and diversity of the food and was pleasantly surprised to see so many GF options. A very enjoyable evening. Some alternative Kombucha options would have also been good.
Very disappointed! Was hoping there would be more gluten free being a Saturday, but nope! Won't be back and won't recommend it to anyone
Average spread, can be tried once
Great food. Good for kids. Friendly staff.
Not worth the price you pay.
A great place for a family gathering. Kind attentive staff and nice atmosphere
