  • Beautiful Tea

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    Four of my girlfriends joined me for a long weekend in New Orleans. Tea at the Windsor was a highlight. We were not seated until 2:00 sharp but once we were the service & ambiance were excellent. All talking stopped when the sandwiches were served. They were strikingly presented and tasted better. The scones were the best I have eaten, as were the condiments, Devonshire cream, lemon curd, raspberry preserves, & butter cream. We forced ourselves to taste the chocolates which were devoured before we left. All in all, a first rate proper English tea.

    The Windsor is a lovely hotel and the afternoon tea was pleasant. However, there were no tons for the finger sandwiches, the table was over cluttered, we were not given milk for the black teas and the waiter was overly sarcastic. I felt the tea could have been much better presented.

  • Halloween Tea for the Kids

    Le Salon is always perfect. This was the Halloween Chidlren's tea, so it wasn't the usual quiet, sit-down affair. The insectarium brought plenty of creepy crawlies (well-chaperoned and in cases, of course) for the kiddies to look and learn. And, I was jealous of the special chocolate chip scones made just for the little ones. As always, the food and drink were perfect, and the service can't be beat. This is an annual tradition for us, and we will definitely be back next year.

    I was visiting my mother and she suggested brunch at the Windsor Court. I read reviews which were not all positive. I booked online for the same day and received a confirmation email. I am pleased to say that the minute we arrived by taxi we were treated exceptionally well. We were greeted by all hotel employees with a smile and an eagerness to please. The setting is beautifully designed and has a pleasant ambience that draws you into a pleasant, comfortable sense of hospitality. There are a few steps up into the dining space and no need to worry for us when using a wheelchair. They have a small metal ramp which is placed over the two steps to roll the wheelchair safely into the room. The china, food,and string was great. Thanks!👭

    I have been going to "Tea" at the Windsor Court for years. I did not care for the Curried Chicken salad sandwiches. The cucumber sandwiches were not as tasty as they usually are. Also, the Cajun Milk Punch was not as good as it usually is. I love going to the Windsor for tea and hope this day was just off for some reason. I will go back in December to compare my visits.

    The afternoon was very special. The hostesses seat you immediately. The decor was lovely and the background piano music set a lovely mood for celebrating my friend's retirement. There was a very impressive selection of teas and the sandwiches, scones and sweets were lovely to look at and delicious to eat -- we had a lovely afternoon.

    I like the hotel experience and being able to sit in the lobby/bar area. We had great service, food and ambiance. The harp is a very nice touch. I like the fact of relaxing and not feeling rushed. The food and drinks were great especially the sweets. Enjoyed sitting back sipping tea. We can't wait for the holiday season to come be festive and have tea.

    We took my 15 year old stepdaughter for afternoon tea and everything was delightful. It seems like such an New Orleans spin to start the tea service with a cocktail, and it was perfect. The choice of teas is amazing, and it is worth asking your server about his own preferences and why. All of the food is superb. I especially enjoyed the egg salad, something I don't usually go for.

The teas were delicious, as were the accompaniments. Our server was very knowledgeable about all the teas and was happy to educate us. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend.

We take my great nieces & their friends to Children Halloween & Christmas Teas which have become traditional in our family. We've had celebratory tea parties such as showers, birthdays, retirements & graduations at LeSalon. We've had afternoon tea at other places throughout the country but none compare with LeSalon.

    I have been going to High Tea at the Windsor Court for over 20yrs. This time, I was very disappointed in the quantity and the display of the sandwhiches and pastries. It has always been so elegant. I felt like my group and I were getting someone's leftovers. It was a very special occasion for my family and I and it was a complete let down.

    Loved the Princess Tea at the Windsor Court. Suited to princesses of all ages (and we were nine, from 4 to 60s), including beverages for the younger and a bit more serious for the older. Scones were phenomenal, and the chocolate-covered strawberries were perfect. Princess Aurora was lovely, and totally enjoyed by all as she crowned our younger princesses, each with a tiara of their own. Delightful!

    Thought it could have been a more private setting than out in the open. Also a big event was going on in the city and people were walking thru and very loud at times. The presentation of the food was excellent but it could have been tastier. Our server was very nice.

    My five-year-old niece said the sound of the harp and the decorations made the "house" feel sweet and peaceful. And I agree! It was a wonderfully calm and inviting place to have tea with my favorite girl. I imagine it would be as enjoyable had I gone with a friend, or brought my mom or aunt. Little bit said everything was "just delicious," and - again - I agree! All of that our server was absolutely wonderful to us. I definitely recommend having tea here!

    High Tea at Windsor Court was a fabulous break from the heat and business of New Orleans. The staff was knowledgeable and discreet, but welcoming and made us feel at home. The suggestions on teas were right on and we very much enjoyed the pairings of sherry and savories. The maitre'd pronounced my name correctly the first time--which never happens. WELL DONE.

    Grandma, Mother, Daughter, 3-Generation Outing for us. Can't say enough good things about this experience. Can be as casual or as Hoity-Toity as you care to make it for yourself. Fabulous Catered Specialties, both traditional & non- traditional to English Tea Time. Relaxing if you can MAKE yourself slow down in mind & body from the rush of modern life, and step back into a Southern Charmed Antibellum Parlor Experience. I feel like a Southern Belle just being here. Great for Bridal Parties, Quiet Showers, Intimate Couple, Mother/Daughter, Birthdays & More. Classical Piano or Harp sets the perfect atmosphere.

    The tea is always wonderful at Windsor Court. It wasn't very crowded, but only one server for all who we're present in the salon. The server forgot to refill my tea and also took a long time to heck on our table. The tea and food was good. The desserts not as good as I recall. A little pricey, but nice experience for special occasion.

    My mother and I chose the afternoon tea at Windsor Court to kick of our very first trip to New Orleans, in honor of our milestone birthdays this year. She turning 60, and I having just turned 30. It was a very sophisticated and classy tea, with delectable, treats and sandwiches. The tea is wonderful and the service is spot on and spectacular. Just enough to hold us over from our arrival into NOLA until our dinner reservation later that evening. I noted that we were celebrating our birthdays in the opentable reservation notes and the staff wrote Happy Birthday on one of our dessert plates filled with chocolate covered strawberries. I would definitely recommend to others!

    As usual the tables were perfectly set with beautiful live background music being played. The cocktails, food, and tea were good. The only problem was an inexperienced server. We were only able to get her attention for only a second cup of tea during the seating. I've been a customer many times over the years and this was the worst service I ever experienced. Now it wasn't the worse I've ever had but the worst I've experienced here.
