Afternoon Tea
One of the few remaining Miami locales offering traditional afternoon tea, the Biltmore is arguably the most elegant venue, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, magnificent lobby and majestically mantled fireplace. The refreshing repast is served daily and is complemented with and elegant harpist. Reservations are recommended.

    Lovely treat. We enjoyed the ambience. We sat next to the harpist and it was not as loud as someone else's review mentioned.

    Had a beautiful afternoon tea for my birthday. Service, food, and ambiance were incredible. They had a harpist playing which was lovely. And Nestor, our server, sang happy birthday to me which was very special. We will be coming back!

    Me. Nestor and Giovanny, we're excellent and very attentive. I would recommend the place for special occasions and relaxing time with loved ones. Also, Nestor has such an angelic vocal he sang to the table next to us. WOW, just beautiful.

    I took my friend to high tea. The tea is served in the lobby and in addition to the set tables there is a harpist. THE HARPIST PLAYS SO LOULD! Be sure to get a seat as far away from the harp as you can as you’ll be unable to hear anything other than that harp. We did ask our server to please ask that she play softer, that helped for one song. I don’t know if it’s the acoustics in the lobby or what, but beware. Our server Nestor was great. I think he was serving all 8 tables so he was a bit busy. Overall I recommend if you: can stand loud noise that is.

    Our server Nestor was exceptional ! Harpist Katherine was perfect. Both of them truly made the event memorable. A darling afternoon spent at The Biltmore in Miami with all ages and stages enjoying afternoon tea time. The tea sandwich selections were delightful, perfectly paired and VERY filling. The desserts ( in true French fashion ) were a feast for the eyes and delicious. The GH Mumm champagne and Grand Marnier strawberries were a nice add on treat for $20. Overall, the elevated experience was well done and I look forward to returning often.

    My friend has a severe dairy allergy. We noted this on the reservation and in-person. The staff spent our first 10 minutes assuring us that they could accommodate her severe allergy for high tea and letting us know how accomplished they are. At the first course, they then served her a spiced pear and a cream puff -- letting us know that this was from the kid's menu. In the 10 minutes we were there, they seemed to misunderstand that a severe dairy allergy was vegetarian? The other diners were served a small foie gras on a tiny toast. My friend hesitated at the cream puff, luckily, but ate a small piece of chocolate on top. She had to take a Benadryl so her throat doesn't close up and we could not trust the servers for the remainder of the meal. To add insult to injury, the manager stopped by our table afterwards to check if my friend was okay and to add that she also had a food allergy -- that eating honey gives her pimples. THIS IS NOT A FOOD ALLERGY. The Biltmore staff clearly does not understand the life and death implications of food allergies. I would not recommend going back (or going with children!). My friends intuitive hesitation saved us all a trip to the emergency room.

    Our reservation just so happened at the coldest days of Miami (45F). The lobby had no heating whatsoever and everything the main door opened a draft of cold air would come in, it felt like we were sitting out in the cold, the tea would get cold in 5mins, and we were shivering the whole time. Other than that, food and service was great.

    Afternoon tea 4 years ago was a splendid experience with yummy finger mini sandwiches a variety of yummy desserts etc. Afternoon tea now consist of a small tier for 2. Nothing extra and a little champagne for over $200. I don’t mind paying it if the quality is there but it was not. Scones were the size of a quarter. Honestly it needs improvement for such a beautiful place. I’ve been visiting the Biltmore for over 20 years. I will continue to go but prefer to dine at la Fontana. Best regards.

    I have always wanted to have tea at the Biltmore and I finally did. It was a wonderful experience that I will most certainly do again. The only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars is because I would prefer to have a choice (there are items that I do not care for) and because I never get scones anywhere that can compare to the ones I have eaten in the U.K. In any case, the Biltmore is a magical venue that never disappoints and I would highly recommend the experience to anyone who has ever considered having tea at the Biltmore.

    I took my Mom for a belated Mothers Day gift. We had a lovely time. The servers were incredibly attentive. The food was pretty good and the tea was constantly being filled up. Several tables were celebrating family events (birthdays, anniversaries) and the servers gave them a little something extra like a dessert with a candle, or glasses of champagne. I don't know how they informed them, but if you're going for a celebration, I'd let them know so you can get the extra attention. I would go again for another future special occasion.

    You’re definitely paying for the scenery and ambience which is really really nice. The food looked beautiful, but not quite worth what you pay for. Again, it’s the ambience and experience that counts and my mother and I loved it!
