This is my third time at Afternoon
This is my third time at Afternoon Tea and it was great as usual. The only complaint I had was I had a special request and it was never addressed. No one told me it wasn't possible to grant it and it wasn't granted. The service was great otherwise.

I would recommend the tea for friends...for that special afternoon outing.

Really nice experience for getting together with friends and enjoying a relaxing afternoon. The food is always good, but I am not a chocolate lover and thought there was a little too much of it in the deserts. But, that is just me.

Afternoon tea at the Grand
Afternoon tea at the Grand was superb! We were not sure what to expect but it definitely exceeded our expectations. I will definitely recommend this to all friends and family especially for special occasions.

Loved it! It was a pampering experience and a great place to spend some time with my daughter. It bumps SLC up a notch in my book.

This was a perfect place to take my mom for her birthday. The service was wonderful, giving us plenty of time to chat and be with our group but also attentive so we never felt like we were waiting. A fun selection of sandwiches and pastries, they even brought out specific food for our vegetarian. The tea was good, not the best that I have had but good. We all found something that we liked. The ambiance was gorgeous and it was nice to have an occasion to dress up for. I will definitely do this again. The price point is really good for what you get.

What a wonderful way to celebrate the start of Mother's Day weekend by having afternoon tea with my dear friends. We loved the opportunity to be seated to hear beautiful music and enjoy wonderful tea and conversation. At first it seems the tea fare may not be enough however one soon learns that the food is quite filling. Will make this a tradition.

Asolutely beautiful Hotel. Service was superb. Our waiter, Blair was simply wonderful!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The amount of food you get is fantastic - go hungry and don't plan on eating dinner for a long while after! Strawberries with cream, finger sandwiches, scones, and a myriad of desserts - they're all fantastic. A lovely place for a quiet, intimate chat over some lovely food and tea. If you're a vegetarian or have other special requests, mention them in the notes of your reservation and they'll take great care of you!

This was my first time at the Afternoon Tea at the Grand and it highly exceeded all my expectations. The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. I had taken my 3 year old daughter with me and they even had kid friendly tea sandwiches that my daughter loved. From the time we sat down to the time we left we couldn't have had a more lovely experience.

Elegant yet down to earth friendly. It was the first time for us and we so enjoyed it. The service was excellent yet not stuffy. The food is wonderful; every thing and plenty to eat. I enjoyed the tea. The staff was very professional but also friendly, warm and personable.

I took my 98 yr. old mother and her 96 yr. old sister for a Birthday Tea at the Grand America. It was a perfect celebration. THey haven't stopped talking about it since.

An elegant tea experience with a surprise twist built in.

This was my second return
This was my second return to Grand America.
I find the surroundings calming, sofisticated
European style of Ritz in Paris.
It's refreshing to have such great place in Salt
Lake City, where sophistication, and appreciation
of good food and beauty of surroundings is lacking.
Great place to go. Highly recommend- you will feel
rejuvenated upon leaving and you will come back
I know I did and I will
Sincerely. Dr Jana Kolc

The tea and finger sandwiches were superb. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. You cant ask for a more relaxing and elegant atmosphere.
Thanks for a great afternoon.

A Special Afternoon with Friends
As the hostess for a biannual reunion of college friends, I wanted to create a special memory. Having been to High Tea at the Grand America before, I knew this would be a wonderful experience for a group of 64-66 year old women. And it was! The staff graciously accommodated the special dietary needs of two women. Everyone was impressed with Sydney, our server, the High Tea menu, the beauty of the hotel and its grounds, the uniqueness of its shops, and the overall atmosphere. They were still talking about it days later.
Booking the reservation on-line through Open Table made setting up the event very easy.

this was our 4th time at the grand america for an afternoon high tea.
it was fantastic like our last three visits. highly recommend for girls brunch sessions etc.

What a lovely tea...
We brought my sister, who was visiting from Georgia, for afternoon tea. Never having been before, we stood at the front of the lounge for a few minutes and no one helped us. We walked in and looked for a table with a reservation for three, then finally the staff noticed us and led us to our table. The finger sandwiches were good except for the egg sandwich which tasted mostly of salt. Everything else, including the tea, was scrumptious. The lounge got quite loud when two parties of children came in for tea. A few were laying on the floor. Not exactly the ambiance I was looking for at $20 per person. Think I'd wait until school was back in session, before I'd go back. Our waitress was outstanding - professional, friendly and courteous.

Fun tea time
Had a good time, service was great, the variety was nice. Left full and happy.

Glorious and simply magical.
I love going to tea at the Grand America! Every experience feels like magic and a new adventure. I feel like a princess being treated to royal tea. The servers are all so kind and genuine. I will be coming back to tea for a very long time. Thank you for letting me live my fairy tale!

It was nice and quiet on a Thursday afternoon, beautiful courtyard, everything was great. I'd expect Saturdays to be wild. But a weekday lunch it was perfect

Brought my sister for a birthday tea. The whole experience was superb. We will definitely be back. Loved the piano music and the fabulous service. Top notch.

Nothing could be finer
I was in Salt Lake City for a convention, and I was looking for some unusual sights to visit. I came upon photos of the Grand America Hotel, and a little about it's history and beautiful design. I decided to visit the hotel and I would indulge in Afternoon Tea served in the Lobby Lounge. It was way more wonderful than I could ever have expected. I had three friends who enjoyed the experience with me. The setting was elegant and chic. The views of the garden outside were lovely. The service was impeccable with a server who was happy to take photos of us. We loved sampling unusual teas, delightful sandwiches, and decadent desserts. Then we wandered the hotel shops, and grounds, and savored the lovely, elegant décor. Worth the trip.

Great experience! Loved all of the little desserts and pastries and finger sandwiches. Wonderful service and great tea. Recommend it to anyone who wants a decadent experience.

This was a wonderful experience for my niece and myself. We enjoyed the whole experience. THANK YOU!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went with my Mpther, Sister and Nephew and had a most enjoyable time. The ambience at the Grand America is wonderful and we were treated by their staff accordingly. Two little girls at a nearby table celebrating their birthdays were treated to flowers and my nephew was given an assortment of sandwiches more fitting a childs taste buds. A lovely selection of finger sandwiches were enjoyed by all and the tray of mini cakes and scones were especially nice.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful time with my granddaughte
As usual, this was a great experience. We had done this before and my granddaughter asked if we could do it again, she enjoyed the last time so much. Our server, Blair, was outstanding. He checked on us regularly without hovering and explained everything well. He also took our picture for us. The food was great and there was plenty of it.

Afternoon Tea w/ my granddaughter
I have done this afternoon tea w/ two of my granddaughters so far. It is a special outing w/ Grandma when they turn 8. Each time my little girl had a great and memorable time w/ the tea. It helps them to see how gracious and lovely life can be and how special they are to me. The waitress this time was so cute w/ Zoie. She really made a big deal out of things for her. She even brought her a rose at the end.
I highly recommend Grand America and their afternoon tea to anyone wanting an elegant & memorable occasion.

We took my daughter for afternoon
We took my daughter for afternoon tea for her 10th birthday. It was a fun and memorable experience that she will never forget. The food served for afternoon tea consists of allot of sweets, it would be nice if there were more of a lunch offering, besides that it was amazing. The teas and hot chocolates were wonderful and so was the service. At the end of tea they brought my daughter a rose for her birthday which made the experience all the more magical for her. We will defiantly go again.

Afternoon Tea was delightful
This was my first experience with the Grand America. When I lived in Philadelphia, I made afternoon tea a regular treat for myself, and was delighted when I discovered the Grand America offered Tea. This visit was the first time my daughter had experienced such an event, and had expressed her desire to have elegant tea for a while. She was just as pleased as I was, and we plan to return often. The ambiance was a wonderful mix of tea participants and lunching guests. Very nice. The harp music was a great touch.

Perfect Tea Party
I took my out of town guest to The Grand America's Afternoon Tea. We were celebrating her birthday and it was perfect.
Our reserved table was ready for us when we arrived. (we were right next to the Harp which was delightful! Brilliant little 16 year harpist) Our server as attentive and knowledgeable and took note of my birthday comment. We chose our tea from their new list and were facinated as our Tea Flower centerpiece opened before our eyes. The finger sandwiches were delicious, but the scones with clotted cream and lemon curd were heavenly! We were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and the elegant surroundings. Even though the portions seem small, we were full by the time dessert was served in a 3 tiered tray!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my three daughters for tea for 16th birthday. It was so much fun! Acknowledged birthday with a song on piano and a rose! So sweet and my daughter was thrilled! I would definitely go back!

Great experience for my daughter's birthday. The service was exceptional and made my daughter feel very special. The food was delicious. We will definitely go back.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time. The sandwiches were very good as were the desserts. Too much dessert for me and my sister-I don't think this would be a problem for most people!

Afternoon Tea at the Grand
Amazing. What a fun afternoon activity for women of all ages. The service was impeccable and there was more than enough food and choices offered. I will definitely be going back.

Little Girls Birthday Wish
My grand daughter turned 4 and has loved having tea parties since she was too. The Grand America made this very special for her. The linens and china were set beautifully on the table. Thank you for making her day extermely specia.

Afternoon Tea was a second time adventure! The first time was horrible, the service inadequate, the staff wouldn't even allow us a second type of tea! This time the experience was wonderful, service fantastic, we tried 3 different types of tea and the staff didn't blink an eye. We had reservations but were given a table close to the front hallway of hotel, even though there was a table facing the courtyard....we asked ....but were redirected, nicely.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Afternoon Tea Experience!
My afternoon tea at the Grand America Hotel was fantastic! My friends and I were seated in a lovely area filled with live harp music; we began our dining with strawberries and creme chantilly - fabulous! The scone course would easily rival any found in Britain, with authentic clotted cream and homemade lemon curd. The finger sandwiches were delicious, especially the locally-sourced Beehive cheese sandwich and the cucumber circlet. The tea pastries were heavenly, from the French "gumdrops" to the raspberry-pistachio confection to the madeleine and the chocolate with gold leaf! Blair, our server, was incredibly helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about the teas and the delectable goodies served in each of the courses! A must-do in SLC.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a great girls activity!
I chose to do an afternoon tea as part of my birthday celebration. I got a group of girlfriends (we're in our 20's) and got dressed up in cute dresses and cardigans. The food was amazing! We all left stuffed! The service was excellent as well.
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
I had been to Afternoon Tea one other time and was so impressed the time before that I brought a close friend with me this time to celebrate her birthday. As expected, everything was superb. Our server was Blair who brings the whole experience together with his effortless charm and hospitality. The food was delicious and the desserts were nothing short of decadent. We can't wait to go back and be treated like royalty again.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful experience. I took my 8 year old daughter. The wait staff was excellent and even brought her a special plate of food in case she didn't like any of the "fancy" stuff. The tea was delicious and hot. We both had a great time. Even though it is just tea and "snacks" you won't need dinner after.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My daughter and I have been looking for a tea spot and heard about the afternoon tea at Grand America. We picked up my grandson on his early day and headed down. We loved it! Everyone treated my little grandson very special, even made him some special sandwiches! He has also talked about how much fun it was! We will be back!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a wonderful way to start the holiday season. Having tea with family makes a lovely afternoon, seeing the window displays, listening to lovely music. If we are in the Salt Lake City area next for the holiday, plan on going back.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best thing in Salt Lake City
I love going to tea at the Grand America Hotel. The food is always delicious and traditional and the tea itself is high quality. The scones in particular are perfect. It also doesn't hurt that there's usually a harpist and the whole place is just gorgeous.
