Diner Reviews
  • "The interior of this home needs a lot of work. There is nothing to indicate that the theme here is a "tea room." The "high tea" cake plate left a lot to be desired. Nothing creative here! The scone was very good. I travelled 40 minutes and was looking forward to a nice presentation. It did not happen. Best thing of the day was spending a few hours with a good friend. Must say they were very busy!!!!!"

  • "i must say the food was excellent, we had brunch. The service was sub par for sure, but the owner gave us a quite a large credit on the bill (unsolicited by us) so that made up for it a bit"

  • "Nice place for brunch. Good food although portion sizes were not too big. Large selection of teas. Service was a little slow but it could have been because they had a big party going on at the same time."

  • "I love the coziness of Anna Beall's . The presentation of High Tea ,with the delicious finger sandwiches and yummy dessert make this place a real treat !!!!

  • "I had been to Ana Beal's at least 20 times before this visit, and it had become one of my favorite places to spend time with special people enjoying fabulous food, tea, and attentive yet unobtrusive service. This time around was shocking, and I will not be going back. The service was shoddy, the food was almost inedible, even the scones which used to be "to die for" tasted as if they had been made with bisquick."

  • "Came for brunch. Very lovely place. A little annoyed when I ordered tea then I was served a different tea. Was told they sold out if one I ordered. Would have rather been told that so I could pick a different one other then it being picked for me. Service is very slow. Relaxing on a non rush busy day but if you have somewhere to be let them know. Scones are akwYs so fresh and warm. Can't wait to come back!"

  • "I have been to Ana Beall's tea room three times now, and enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea each time. The price definitely beats the price in NYC, and the scones are delicious. The chefs/bakers mix up the offerings, so the scone flavors are always different, but every scone I have had is big, warm, and delicious. And when you slather on the clotted cream and jam, well, nothing beats it. The sandwiches are good, but I wish they used a heartier bread. The teas are wonderful, and they will 'wet the pot' as often as necessary. I love the quote on the wall downstairs - “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”"

  • "I was only offered seating downstairs. Trusting the 2 lovely upstairs rooms were surely private parties, i accepted seated near the kitchen door. Later, i watched all the following guests asked if they would like to be seated upstairs - naughty that! For an early Sunday brunch, I booked here with an acute nostalgia for their wonderful Ploughman's breakfast- alas the server said no, probably another restaurant. (Most definitely not!) Among the specials recited was a ham & cheese quiche that i selected - it arrived mostly broccoli. Lukewarm tea was served in tandem with the lukewarm quiche & a stingy salad with a slight drizzle of dressing. Not a happy experience, albeit memorable for all the wrong reasons - yet a really scrumptious scone!"

  • "First time there after hearing favorable reviews. Our timing coincided with two private parties held upstairs which forced our group to eat on the main entrance floor which is chilly due to front door opening all the time. Staff seems confused and disorganized. Service as I had read previously on OpenTable was definitely the weakest spot. But having two private parties upstairs didn't help matters. Fortunately the food is very good especially the freshly made scones. The costs were quite reasonable. Makes me wonder if they slightly raised them, maybe they could afford more kitchen and wait staff. Will likely give it one more shot, but will wait until weather warms up and if there's seating upstairs."

  • "Have great sandwiches. the slow cooked pork with thier own bbq sauce was very good. However they have a brie and chicken sandwich that is even better."

  • "We all liked the fact that the restaurant is broken up into rooms - which makes it easy to hear each other for conversation. The pumpkin butternut squash soup was a hit, as well as the salads and sandwiches. The scones were so fresh and delicious - everyone enjoyed them tremendously. The service was wonderful and we didn't feel rushed. I am not a tea drinker, but the other 6 women who had tea thought it was too weak, even though they let the tea steep for quite a while. I personally would recommend Ana Beall's for a get together with the girls."

  • "Our group loved the ambience of Ana Beall's. The tea selection was extensive, the service very good and the noise level was very low. Some of us enjoyed our food very much and some were not so pleased. However, we all agreed we'd be back soon, perhaps for afternoon tea."

  • "I've been to Ana Beall's several times since it opened and have always enjoyed the wonderful teas, scones, sandwiches. I haven't been there in a while and was disappointed this time. No effort was made to honor my request for an upstairs table-we had to plead to be moved upstairs. Once we were seated, service was extremely slow-it took an hour from when we placed our order until our table was first set and we were served. The tea sandwiches in our order were skimpy--you could barely see the egg, chicken or tuna salad between the bread. The scones were good but the dessert goodies were nothing special. I don't know whether this was an off day, but we were not impressed."

  • "We liked the concept, the ambience and the tea selection was great. We were there for weekend brunch. While we understand the concept of tea time is to be slower paced and enjoyable, the service was very, very slow. The place is understaffed especially when there is a large private party. The service staff forgot our soup. Our eggs and salmon hash were lukewarm. We would've stayed for more tea, but our table was never cleared after we had finished our brunch."

  • "When our favorite tea room closed two years ago, we had to find a new place. I suppose we were spoiled. Everything about that place had been special--the food, the decor, the gift shop, and the service. Ana Beall's food was good, but not really up to the quality we had before. I made a reservation a month in advance, but when the five of us arrived, we were shown to a table for four with an extra chair at the end. Eventually, we got the server to add a small table so that we were not so badly cramped, but the downstairs left a lot to be desired. (The upstairs was unavailable.) We missed the little extras (pretty tablecloths, china, etc.) that had made our "old" place a treat. They would not have served our water in plastic cups!"

  • "Been to Ana Beall's many times and have noticed it has been getting worse and this last time it was really awful, Don't know if they have a new chef or what but the food was not good and made a reservation but got stuck downstairs in cold and noise. Waitress was stressed seemed to be only one there. Unfortunately I don't think I'll go back again and I really had high hopes."

  • "We went for lunch on a Sunday and I was not impressed with the lunch menu. It was a brunch menu and though the salmon omelet was wonderful the chicken san which was disappointing as well as the monte Christo sandwhich. The bread on both was tasteless and not dense or flavorful and the teas were not replenished enough...for the table and a larger basket of assorted breads was needed for our birthday party of 5 people. Two people in our party were 81 years old and had a hard time Climbing the stairs to get to the restaurant To be fair I will need to come back with a friend and order from the lunch menu which offered more sandwhich items"

  • "Our waitress waited 15 minutes before she came to our table. We had questions re the menu and her answer was I don't know. Our food was delivered incorrectly and was dry and tasteless. It was such a major let down and the decor was without character. We couldn't wait to get out of there."
