Lobby Lounge at Mandarin Oriental, New York
I went here for a Sunday afternoonI went here for a Sunday afternoon tea. The service was attentive, view was spectacular, food was delicious- especially the ginger scones. The only big issue I had was the price, the cheapest glass of bubbly was $15 and most cocktails starting at $18 a drink. Just know, you will be dropping major coin for this adventure, but if money is no object then this place is a must go!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMany Thanks!In NYC for an anniversary weekend and came for Tea on Sunday. The staff went out of their way to make it special starting with our arrival, we were greeted with an energetic "Happy Anniversary" and told that they had reserved a special table for two at the windows overlooking Central Park. The view and the service was amazing and the ginger scones delectable. When it was time for our tray of desserts we were treated to a plate of chocolate dipped strawberries with coconut, dark chocolate and nuts with a personalized message at the bottom of the plate written in chocolate and little chocolate hearts. What a lovely afternoon and a memorable part of our trip. Thank you!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMProposal in the Lobby BarI ate here last week and when I booked the table, I put a note on the account to say that if possible, could I have a window seat as I wanted to pop the question to my girlfriend. I wasn't sure wether the message had got through but needn't have worried as the message did get through, I got the window seat, and the staff were excellent.
I'd recommend this place to anyone based on great views over central park, lovely ambience and fantastic staff.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there to try afternoonI was there to try afternoon tea.

I indicated in my booking that I'd like a great seat for 2 and we were friends who have not seen each other in over 7 yrs. We were seated at a table by the window (great view !!) and towards the end of our stay (5 hrs) they sent over some complimentary chocolate covered strawberries. Written on the plate in chocolate sauce was "Happy Reunion". I love that they paid attention to the note I put on my Open Table booking. Love them!!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
