A word from Pavilion - The Langham, Chicago
Located on the second floor, its soaring ceiling and
marvelous views of the city make Pavilion an elegant space to unwind and converse with a glowing fireplace and grand piano as a backdrop. Pavilion is home to Tiffin at The Langham, the traditional afternoon tea that first debuted at The Langham, London in 1865. Tiffin includes proprietary Langham teas, Champagne, and an array of sweet and savory bites. All are served with traditional displays and flourish. Expect local talented pianists during weekend afternoon tea.

Diner Reviews
  • "I highly recommend the tea at The Langham, Chicago. The room has stunning views of the city and the room is understated, modern elegance. Service was extraordinary - our server, Thomas, was attentive without being overly solicitous and he was extremely knowledgable about the menu. From the hostess greeting our group to every detail of the afternoon, it was a lovely and memorable experience."

  • "Tea was not strong enough for me and the dessert options were a little disappointing. The highlight was the scones and the clotted cream, the rest was just ok. It's also overpriced for what we received."

  • "High Tea was among the best in the city and I've been to them all. Pricey yes, but not outrageous for the level of service and food. Delightful! Will be back."

  • "Classic high tea in a wonderful contemporary setting. Elegant service from knowledgeable wait staff. Try to get a window seat to look out over Wabash Avenue at the Chicago River. Especially loved the egg salad with truffles "sandwiches," which had such a lovely presentation. The scones were also amazing. Pricey, but worth it!"

  • "A friend and myself had a lovely late afternoon Tea at the Pavilion. Paul, our waiter, was informative, cheerful and attentive. We were able to take our time and enjoy the lovely food and tea offerings. The food was not only great tasting, but the presentation was fabulous, Not to mention the beautiful ambience of the room. If you enjoy a high Tea, this is one of the best I've ever experienced."

  • "Made my reservations months ago and didn't realize they would be having a special "Valentea". The prosecco with tea was a nice touch. The food was lovely, the highlight, however, was the service. The hostess, the server, everyone - was attentive, but not intrusive. And they let us linger for quite a long while! For tea, you want to be able to have a relaxing and unhurried time, rather than being rushed out for the next seating or for the dinner rush. Here, the room is just for tea, so there was no need to rush us out. So lovely. Will be back to try their regular tea and their Downton Abbey tea, if they are still having it."

  • "We went here for tea when it opened up. Perhaps it has improved since then. That said, we were comparing tea here to tea at the drake and at the peninsula. Tea at the Peninsula wins, and wins by a very wide margin. Quality of tea and food, atmosphere, and service: again, Peninsula wins. Perhaps the Pavilion may compete by adding a live string quartet like the Peninsula has."

  • "Came here for a friends birthday for afternoon tea. Had the wild elderberry tea. My tea was fragrant and delightful. And we loved the attentive service, from the coat check to the menu, refills, and extra care for the special occasion. As a big foodie, i especially enjoy the description of the food, and the server took heed to explain at a decent speed. My favorite are the fresh scones and the accompanying cream, jam, and butter!"

  • "Dined at the Pavilion for their Downton Abbey-inspired afternoon tea menu with 4 friends, and the entire experience was great. The environment is elegant, but relaxing. The servers are attentive, but not over bearing. I've been to several afternoon teas while traveling around the world and throughout Chicago, and this was definitely in the top 3 of my most enjoyable teas."

  • "Very elegant, yet modern, setting with grand piano adding to the ambience. View of Christmas lights at Trump Tower across the street. Very comfortable seating. Tea sandwiches and desserts were elaborate, filling and I found most of them delicious. A few were a little too "foodie" for me. I loved the classic scone. There were too many desserts to eat, but we took them to go. Perfect place to celebrate my new daughter-in-law's marriage with her and my daughters."

  • "Tea at the Langham was definitely one of our favorites - pianist music included. The seating was exactly how I would imagine a tea in someone's home in England. It began with a gracious hostess who took our coats before seating us and whisking them away to a private room. Rob, our charming server, started us off with champagne and a "shooter" type of beverage that consisted of passion fruit beads in ginger & apple juice (?) - most unique & delicious. It was followed with pots of tea, savory petite sandwiches, scones w/clotted cream & jam, and an assortment of sweets. When I thought our tea was complete we were also offered a choice of cookies. As a final touch, Chef Scott Green, sent us home with an artfully packaged gift of cookies."

  • "A beautiful new first rate hotel in a landmark building! Excellent experience - could not have been better."

  • "Holiday tea is $50, for which you do get a glass of Champagne. Then come four teeny sandwiches, followed by a whole bunch of sweets, a real sugar high. Much too much patter/explanations from the waiter. Much better teas at Drake, Peninsula, Ritz, etc."

  • "This is a beautiful relatively new addition to the top hotels in Chicago. We went for Christmas tea with girlfriends and thought the food and service were excellent. It is elegant and romantic with a fabulous view of the Chicago river and the city. It is also quiet. The only glitch in an otherwise perfect afternoon was the room was freezing cold. They are having some problems heating the space so be prepared or call ahead and check on the issue. In the Spring and Summer, this will not be a problem but with the frigid cold temperatures, be prepared to wear warm clothing or do not check your coat!"

  • "The masses haven't found this elegant room for tea. It may not be everyone's cuppa--the colors are muted and gold and silver,but the tea servings and the service were superb. Hopefully by next year, people will discover the Pavilion."

  • "I took my wife here for High Tea to celebrate her birthday. It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The service was flawless, the food was very good. The live music wss a nice touch. Thanks to pianist for playing Happy Birthday! We really appreciated the diverse selection of teas. Next time we will have to try one of the aged tea options. Needless to say, this is now our go-to spot for high tea."

  • "We had a lovely tea for two for our mutual birthdays. The setting was lovely, food excellent, service attentive. It felt like it matched exactly to the image I have of a proper tea, with a tray of savory finger sandwiches, tray of scones, choice of tea, tray of desserts. Small currents -amusee bouche - was a perfect extra touch"
