Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Not so high tea! Went for a girlie birthday treat. Items on the printed menu do not match those provided and had to chase up missing items , were told everything was provided ( luckily we had someone take photos before we dug in) and...had ro go through it with the staff to show items missing. The tables are small cocktail tables below knee height making it tricky to juggle the food, drinks and eat as well. Yes it is pretty but bland. Much better high teas elsewhere in Hobart.More

Stopped in for a drink as we were too early for our dinner reservation. Drinks were lovely, the only thing more sour than my drink were the staff. Really rude staff, not welcoming at all, got ignored at the bar by 3 out of the...4 there. No "sorry, won't be a moment" or smiles. Absolutely no eye contact. Ordered a drink and then didn't know what to do. I asked if I could go and sit down or needed to wait and was met with disdain. If you don't like working behind a bar don't work there. Staff really ruined the start of our evening. Do better!More

We decided to try the new Birdcage Bar Cocktail High Tea as a birthday treat. Sadly we were very disappointed. Much of the printed menu did not match what was served. eg. there were no caramelised white chocolate, toasted coconut and raspberry crisps; no espresso...marscapone filled donut holes; no hummus, flat bread and tzatziki; no sour cherry and dark chocolate lamington. We were not sure about a few of the other items, as it was difficult to tell what they were. No explanation was provided of the menu items that were replacing the printed menu items. There was no clotted cream - just boring, aerated cream. There was no apple and cassis jam - just run of the mill raspberry jam. There was no champagne cocktail - just half a glass of plain bubbles. When we asked for tea, we were told tea and coffee were not included and were at an extra cost. We drew her attention to the printed menu, where it clearly stated that tea and coffee were included. We ordered tea - what we were given was one teabag each in a cup of hot water. We had to ask for milk. The cocktail was pleasant, as was some of the food, but it would have been nice to know what we were eating. We have had High Tea at many places, and The Birdcage was a huge disappointment. Most of the issues can be easily fixed. We hope that Wrest Point sees these initial issues as teething problems and can sort them out quickly.More

Vincenzo and other bar staff are great- friendly, fun and knoledgable. They sense when you're up for a chat and when to back away. This is a great place to unwind at the end of the day or catch up with friends.

My wife an I enjoyed a late evening cocktail with some fantastic live music entertainment at the Birdcage Bar. Friendly staff who made exceptionally tasty cocktails. It's not a large venue so on a busy night it could get a bit cramped but we were...fortunate that it wasn't during our visit. definitely, recommend the cocktails.More

We were staying at the casino and decided to go and have a look in the birdcage bar. They had a guy singing which set the mood and was singing 80s and 90s which I could relate to. We had a night cap drink before...going to bed but was a nice place to relax and enjoy a drink with live musicMore

I found out Jamie Taylor and Billy Whitton sing here so will lookout for them next year. I have also enjoyed hearing Sambo here, and The Darlings last Friday. There are Happy Hours and the cocktails looked very tempting.

A relaxing bar for good music and a casual drink. This bar has been operating forever and whenever in Hobart we try to visit a little later at night for some great cocktails and relaxing music before retiring. Highly recommended.
