It was delightful!
I recently came to afternoon tea with friends to exchange Christmas presents. I was nervous because I have some food allergies and it's a prix fixe menu, but our server Asmaa was fantastic. She was thorough and wrote everything down. She worked with the chef to make sure there was a plate for me with the food I could eat and nothing I couldn't, and even added some extra sweets that weren't on the menu for me as a surprise. The staff went above my expectations and I felt very taken care of. She really made the experience perfect for us.
The tea was wonderful. I had the Lady Blue Earl Grey, and my friends had the Chai and the Champagne of Teas and all were fantastic. The ambiance and live music really made the day special. I'm looking forward to coming back, and I hope to have Asmaa as our server in the future. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Lovely way to spend a cold Boston afternoon. Food was very good servers attentive.
Disappointed by tea. The room while beautiful was chilly. The tea had way too many leaves to sieve. The price is higher than other teas I have gone to in Boston.
The service was good. The food was also good.
The food was shockingly bad: stale sandwiches, dry cookies, inedible pastries, scant amount of food for $46 each. We would have wanted more if it hadn't tasted so bad! What was once a special treat at an elegant hotel is now a bad joke!
Elegant, memorable---sitting one floor above Tiffany's, looking out the window at Chanel. Life served in tiny, perfect bites.
Sadly, this was a disappointment. Upon our arrival we were met with chaos since it was also the same time as a children’s function. There was no one to assist any of us who were there for the adult tea, so we were left to fend for ourselves. The food was uninspiring, and some things were stale. The table was too small to accommodate the four of us. We had high expectations, but alas we were unimpressed. Worst of all was the complete failure by the valet to bring our car. After waiting 45 minutes, and hearing from four different valets that it would be “just a minute”, each and every one of them simply abandoned the search and went on to assist a different customer! It was snowing, we were in heels, and one of us didn’t have a coat ( since we had chosen to use the valet service!) Finally the car was located, but they didn’t even bother to drive it to the entrance where we had been waiting. They simply told us it was around the corner, but didn’t show us where, or help us to it. What chaos!
Petite sandwiches and dessert samples were delicious. A very enjoyable Christmas celebration with my daughter.
Birthday celebration and it was an outstanding experience. Great food impeccable atmosphere and excellent service. Can't wait to go back
We have been to the Taj for afternoon teas many times and always enjoyed our experience. However, our recent experience was not enjoyable. Our server was not attentive, he never poured our teas, and he kept dropping things or banging on various items on our table. He rarely checked in with us. Despite using the strainer, there were so many tea leaves in our teas that I was not able to enjoy my tea. The food was nothing special. Overall, we were disappointed.
