Georgianne, Hampton Park Secondary College

I just want to thank you and your staff for the event last night. The students had a great time and the event went very smoothly. The staff were very helpful and accommodating to our needs, especially Cecilia. She really went above and beyond and checked in with us regularly to ensure things were as they wanted. 

Valerie, Hampton Park Secondary College

I would also like to extend my thanks for a wonderful night, and as Georgie said your staff went above and beyond, especially with me and my foot.  You were so good to me and I thank you for it, I know that the kids had a wonderful time, so once again thank you.


Alexandra Anasson

Tavni, Trung and the team at The Lincoln of Toorak have been wonderful from the moment we booked our event to the finish. No request was too big or too difficult and always met with a smile and friendliness. Would not hesitate in recommending for your next event and we will be back!

Vicki Barackas

We were so unbelievably happy with every step of the process in dealing with you guys. Your consistent flexibility, enthusiasm, kindness, friendly nature and understanding made the process so enjoyable and easy. That goes for both Tanvi & Kate. The wedding night itself was AMAZING! Our host on the evening, (I’m so sorry but my mind has gone blank in remembering her name!!!) was lovely & made everything run like clock work. The room looked stunning – everything I dreamed it’d be. I have family & friends still telling me how delicious the food was! It was the perfect venue for us. We could not have been happier!  We were so happy to see people dancing with plenty of dance floor space and enjoying themselves. The staff were incredible, please thank the waiters and waitresses. Thank you for being so kind to my cousin who made the cake (she was given a bottle of champagne by the reception). Thank you for working so well with our suppliers. I am sure there are many other things you did for us that I am not aware of behind the scenes so I truly thank all of you for making our night the best night of our lives!! I cannot fault anything. Again, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

Kate, MGS Rowing Club

Thank you to all the staff at Lincoln for a successful dinner! The night ran very smoothly. Cecilia was terrific in keeping me informed throughout the night. The table service was done quickly and quietly ensuring we kept to our schedule. Thank you for all your hard work behind the scenes, until next year!

Diane Rabahi

Thank you again for all your hard work and support throughout the duration of our wedding planning,

We had a perfect night and we received nothing but amazing feedback about our night, from the beautiful menu to the amazing food. Our guest just raved on!

Sheridan – Deakin University Sports Association

On behalf of DUSA and the Deakin Dragons, I just wanted to send you a big thank you for allowing us to host our Sport Awards at Lincoln of Toorak again last night! It was a fantastic evening and everyone who attended had a really enjoyable time. Kate, Cecilia and the rest of your event staff were absolutely fabulous!!!

Mehul and Rajal Sanghvi

An absolute gem tucked away in the busy Toorak Village shopping strip – fantastic ambiance and service and very accommodating – highly recommendable

Kate Anderson

Kate and Tanvi were fantastic at helping me organise a function. They made everything super easy and stress free. The food was delicious and the staff that were working on the night were so helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend going here.


Thank you guys so much, our night was perfect and the level of service provided was beyond expectation, Stuart and I would definitely recommend the Lincoln of Toorak for future functions.


Dear Kate, Tanvi, Lauren and your team,
I just want to thank you for making Saturday evening’s Head of the River dinner such a seamless, logistical success.
Despite a late start due to the senior rowers being late, and two guests who had to be accommodated at the last minute on a new table due to people not sitting where they were allocated, the evening went smoothly.
Thanks you so much of your professionalism and assistance in both the lead up to the event and on the night. You made it all so easy for us.
The room looked fabulous. And the food was lovely.


We have had a number of guests comment on how good the food was. Also, it appears some were offered seconds – which is over and above what we would have expected. Thank you!
Working with you has been a joy! Thank you very much for everything!
PS: Tanvi you’re a saint ?

James Giapitzoglou

We both had the BEST night of our lives at your venue! I can’t begin to describe in words how incredible it all felt all throughout the night. I genuinely felt that the night itself ran so smoothly without a hitch from start to finish and I honestly could not fault a thing… from the exceptional service by all staff, to the delicious food, to the presentation and set-up of the venue (it looked breathtaking). We have received nothing but wonderful, positive feedback from all our friends and family who attended the night. Both Tanvi and Kate were so amazing! Andrea and myself have said that to each other and so many other people when the topic of wedding planning comes up in conversation.


Thank you so much for an amazing night. Yourself and the staff did an amazing job and everyone was very happy with the food and service.


I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising last nights event for us. I have received such positive feedback from my squad members about how successful the evening was. The venue looked fantastic, the food was great and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. There were instructors attending our function that have been to many graduations and commented on how last nights was one of the best they had been to.
I would not hesitate in recommending your venue to others.
Thanks again for making our celebrations so memorable.


A massive THANK YOU for not only hosting our wedding day reception, but for exceeding all of our expectations – we could not fault the outstanding quality of service and the exceptional attitude of all of the friendly staff on the night! The reception not only looked amazing but the atmosphere and ambience was perfect. In particular I must make a special mention of the food, we received so many compliments on how fantastic the food tasted and especially the portion sizes – our guests were thrilled but more importantly we were over the moon when we saw all of the dishes come out!
I must thank in particular, Kate for everything you assisted us with from the start to the end of the night, and also the lovely waitress Bridget (she served the bridal table) she was just so friendly and helpful – she is an absolute asset to the venue!!!

Caroline – Victoria Police

Pradeep and Gayatri

Our sons wedding reception was held at Lincoln of Toorak in Nov 17. The staff (Kate & Tanvi) were so friendly, guided us through the planning process which started almost a year ago, helped in every way, and ensured that every detail was taken care of. The function went of very well and almost every guest mentioned about the lovely venue and most delicious food. We will highly recommend this venue.


The Lincoln of Toorak team are amazing, helpful and patient. As a university society, we are thrilled to have our events at Lincoln of Toorak. They offer us a easy service and make it great for not only us but for our guests. I wouldn’t go with anyone else.

I just wanted to send you the most sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart for last night. You and your staff went so above and beyond what was expected of you for me and my athletes and honestly made the night so unbelievable. I’d particularly like to thank your staff for helping Julia when her dress split down the back, when that story got around to me I almost cried to know that we were in such wonderful hands. The food, DJ and service were all amazing and we could not have asked for more.
We hope the night was smooth on your end.

Lauren Martinelli
