Dining Room Feedback

People physical distancing at table

Organising our event at Graduate House is always an excellent experience. If I say the food was exceptional, it implies that it isn’t always? Can I say the presentation and flavour of the fish and veg was exceptional, and we’ll put it down to the ingredients available at this time of year?

Also the fruit platters were very generous, and so full of flavour (again all the melons are great now), and a most interesting cheese selection. So many women send their compliments to the chef/caterers for a really lovely lunch. We love your staff and feel very fortunate to have your services.

“A great diversity of food and cuisine. The lunches are filling and satisfying. The staff always friendly, approachable and talkative. It is always a joy to have lunch at Graduate House.”

My donation is the least that I could do to show my appreciation for the staff, and the patience with which they have been serving us. I haven’t been back home ever since I came to Melbourne last year, and I found a second home at Graduate House. What I miss the most about my home is home-cooked meals, and I am so grateful to be provided meals here on time, and not have to worry about stepping out of my room at all. The excellent hospitality has really helped me focus on writing my thesis. Thankyou!

It is always so easy to organise a function here. Rosie is a joy to deal with and we feel very confident knowing that when we arrive, things will be in place. And if we forget anything or something is not quite right, it is easily fixed. It takes the stress out of events. All we have to worry about is the program. The food was delicious and plentiful. And all the staff are so friendly and helpful. Everything was perfect – our function room suited our needs and it is a joy to deal with the staff at Graduate House.

Catherine Gosling, Association of German Teachers of Victoria Inc.

Organising our event was excellent, as always. I can’t think of anything that needed improvement. Graduate House staff are always so responsive and helpful. Function rooms are suitable and food was excellent. Staff, as always, were very helpful.

Penny Beeston, Geography Teachers’ Association Victoria.
