Food and Desire :
The negatives: A little lack of organisation as the welcome sign that we provided was not used and they made an ugly replacement, (ours was personalised), they put our bridal party of 7 in the lift for 4 (which then got them stuck for 10 mins - this is what cost the 2 star drop) the operations manager is in all our photos of the entry to the ceremony (there was no reason for her to be standing there) and the clearing of glasses on high bars (I had to ask for empty glasses to be removed as there was no room for anyone to put a drink down.)
Positives: Venue was amazing, food and drinks was amazing and all the bar and wait staff were amazing , initial consultation was amazing, price was great value!
Overall was very happy!
We got married at the Royal Melboune Yacht Squadron Habour Room. The location and venue were beautiful! The Company who runs the weddings there (Food and Desire) were difficult to deal with throughout the planning process. But it all worked out well on the day and we ended up having a very positive experience.
Could not rate the people at Food and Desire enough. Our entire experience with them was effortless and they helped us in every way they could. From helping set up decor, to communicating with our MCs and vendors to even finding a stand-in easel after ours broke before the ceremony the team at the Harbour Room could not have been more helpful.
We have had raving reviews from our guests about how fantastic the food was, and it's true - by far the best food experience we have had at a wedding. Food and Desire - Thank You!!
The venue was a perfect size and layout for our event of around 80 guests.
Being mid winter we chose an indoor ceremony which worked well. The staff did an amazing job turning the ceremony area back into a dancefloor within 15-20 minutes of the ceremony wrapping up.
We paid for a 4 choice menu which complicated the catering. The Food and Desire team did a fabulous job - our guests are still commenting positively on the quality of the food and service.
We struggled early in the planning stages to understand what was part of the package versus not part of the package, and to understand the menu options. Our co-ordinator, Danielle, worked hard to get agreement and we were really pleased with the final result.
We were not aware there was going to be a Yacht club event at the same time as the ceremony. A number of club members were walking back and forward in front of the guests (behind the bride and groom) during the ceremony and there was a bit of noise. It was a minor distraction - especially given our wedding was a relaxed celebration of an older, long established couple. However, for some couples this may be a bigger deal.
Food & Desire were spectacular.
Their communication was great in the lead up to the wedding. We had at least 3 meetings prior, to ensure that every detail was organised for the day.
On the wedding day itself however, they blew me away. The food was incredible, the service - impeccable. Most of our guests commented on how on the ball the staff were with the service and how great the food was.
All the staff were also super friendly on the night, which just added to the positive vibe of our wedding.
I would highly recommend the Harbour Room for a well-organised, fun and delicious wedding.
Could not of asked for a better place to have our wedding! Sophie, Rebecca and Adam were all phenomenal! Highly recommend this company! The day was so well run, guests commented on how amazing the food was!
The food at our wedding was beautifully presented and most importantly tasted delicious. The service on the night was impeccable. The rooftop is picturesque and the room is such a beautiful space with its large windows with bay and city views. Couldn't have been happier with the whole experience!
The Harbour Room made our wedding perfect. The ceremony was magnificent with the most spectacular view.
Cocktails on the rooftop following the ceremony followed by reception in the Harbour Room - the food was in abundance and beautiful.
We can not thank the staff enough for all their efforts and
The team at Harbour Room both in the lead up and on the night were fantastic, they made sure everything I wanted was done before I even had to ask and put aside cocktails and food for myself and the partner. Absolutely spot on!
Not only is the venue stunning but the service I received was amazing! All my guest after the wedding commented on how attentive all the staff were on my wedding day. The food & wine was also a major hit!
We were really happy with the service at Harbour Room (especially Kate & Adam!!) From start to finish, everything was made so seamless and easy. The food was great and our guests are still raving about it! Also found the staff to be really attentive. 10/10
