Afternoon Tea at the Briarwood Inn reviews from OpenTable diners

    Dined on 12/14/2013
    Our waitress seemed to be a bit flustered, we waved her down after waiting about 15 minutes and nobody acknowledged us. Her response was flustered as well, stating that they had seated us and didn't tell her. (she had walked past us several times however) The place was Beautifully decorated, the food was great! I had requested a table by the fire place and was delighted that my request was honored! The waitress did become friendlier :) . Will definetely make this holiday tea a annual tradition!.

    My husband and I enjoyed Afternoon Tea.....felt like we were in England. Scones were delicious - followed by soup and "finger sandwiches". Enjoyed a delicious, leisurely meal. You have your choice of numerous teas. Sweets also included. Wonderful, relaxing afternoon. Time to reflect and talk to each other while enjoying delicious food. Plenty to take home for another meal.

    Our tea was fantastic. Hardly any customers. We were very surprised, it is usually crowded. Maybe Father's Day made it slow. Our waiter was great. Will be back very soon.

  • What Open Table reservation?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/4/2013
    I made a reservation through Open Table and got 2 confirmations via email but when I arrived at the restaurant the hostess said she had no reservation! She said are you sure that you made reservations here? This bothered me. She asked us to wait in the bar and, when she came out, I showed her the confirmation on my phone and she said "oh, it is today's date!". I was concerned as it said reservations were required for the tea. She, then, reassured me that it was no problem and we got a wonderful table. It was a birthday celebration for a 13 year old and the waiter was wonderful. He even brought out some extra desserts with a candle for her. I would had rated the whole experience higher if there wasn't the reservation issue.

  • Afternoon Tea Baby Shower
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/18/2012
    We went to the Briarwood for a baby shower. The staff was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for afternoon tea. The atmosphere was very appropriate for tea. The piped in music was a little lame. They would have been better off sticking to purely classical and skipping the easy listening but this is just a minor complaint and obviously more musical preference. The food was mainly good. A couple of the tea sandwiches were a bit dry but the little cakes and chocolates were delicious.

    Food was inspired and creative, with a spooky Halloween theme and autumn produce. Fantastic pumpkin soup! Waitress was friendly and helpful. The experience makes me want to go for dinner. The only off note was when the Hostess was reluctant to accomodate our request for one of several open booths, but she complied.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/7/2011
    We have always spent our Mother's Day Tea at the Brown Palace. We were unable to get in this year (we normally book months in advance). We didn't call in time this year. We then decided to give the Briarwood a try this year. It was wonderful! The only thing that the Brown Palace had over the Briarwood would be that a Champagne Kir Royal was not part of the Tea. I think this should be part of it. At least give a Champagne to the Mothers on Mother's Day. That was the only thing I'd change. Everything else was fantastic.

    Our group of five went to Afternoon Tea, and it was really nice. There were lots of delicious sandwiches pastries and quiches to eat...you won't go away hungry! The soup the day we went was Gazpacho and it was pretty good. We also ordered a bottle of champagne as we were celebrating our friend's birthday. They have a pretty extensive wine selection and I was able to make a good choice for our table. We all had a wonderful time and would go again for tea.

    Dined on 7/10/2010
    On a whim, we decided to drive out to Golden for a relaxing afternoon tea/snack after wanting to check out the Briarwood Inn for some time. We made our OpenTable reservation and immediately headed out to catch the last seating (tea service stops around 2:30pm), and we were very glad we did. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and each course was more delicious than the next. From the white asparagus soup to the variety of savory finger sandwiches and petit pastries to the pomegranate sorbet to finish off the meal, we were thrilled with the exceptional quality of food and lovely ambiance at the Briarwood. It's worth noting that enough food is served for a lunch meal, we left satisfied (full, but not stuffed), will definitely return!

    I love dinner at the Briarwood, and afternoon tea does not disappoint either. The service was excellent, the food was excellent, the dessert was excellent. Although the price range lends itself better to special occasions, afternoon tea with the girls was a winner for our group!
