Best afternoon tea in the universe (OK, maybe just the Phoenix area). Highly recommended.

I had originally had a reservation for six. However, with the flu going around, three of our friends could not make it. I called The Phoenician and advised them just a few days before and they were so friendly and made the changes without an issue. We were also running late and they still were able to accommodate us. I have been going to tea there for years and it never disappoints!

We along with two other tables of 4 were seated next to a large party of 10 that were very loud. It was difficult for us to visit due to the loud table and we were in a side room with them. Poor seating management. Service was very elegant, but we had to hunt them down twice. They added an automatic 22% tip. The scones were good, however; the sandwiches and deserts varied. Tea tasted great, food ok flavor but, All was beautiful.

With the renovations of the Phoenician, the decor is definitely more contemporary than the classic English feel that used to exist there, but the experience is just as pleasant. Natalie and Wanda are wonderful; remembering past guests and making sure the experience is pleasant for everyone. Allen's piano music sets the perfect mood to relax, talk with friends, and just enjoy the afternoon. The white grand piano in the newly renovated area is beautiful. The tea, the finger sandwiches, the scones, and the mini pastries are all both delicious and elegant to look at. And, the view is unmatched. I would definitely recommend afternoon tea at the Phoenician for anyone wanting the classic English tea experience and a pleasant afternoon with friends.

Dear friend and I had afternoon tea. Every thing was wonderful except for the noise level. It was hard for us to catch up with each other.b Nice selection of teas, good variety, excellent finger sandwiches, light scones and the wide variety of pastries was to die for! Delightful venue, excellent staff, delicious tea and people watching to while away a lazy afternoon.

We’ve had tea in London and think the Phoenician’s tea service is the best! Wanda is a true treasure, we adore her and the hotel renovation looks great. Thank you for a beautiful time!

The High Tea at the Phoenician is very relaxing. The menu selection of teas is outstanding.
The sandwich course, scones course and dessert course are delicious.
It's a great place to get together with friends for an afternoon.
