The afternoon tea was a total disappointment. The server was very knowledgeable about the history of the afternoon tea. However she never came back again and checked to see if we need more water. The only thing that edible was the scones which was very good. All the sandwiches and pastry can get them form third rated bakery. The bread they used to make the sandwiches were dried up. The dessert were not memorable. It's like the buffet dessert. With the money they charge for each person, totally not worth it. Do not waste your money.
My best girlfriend and I met for the High Tea. When you pull up to St. Regis, you have the ability to valet park for $2, if validated. I chose to park in the parking deck for free. If you’re driving your wreck of a car that day, you may want to do the parking deck. The inside of the St. Regis is gorgeous! The area where the High Tea takes place is right up the stairs at Astor Court. The service was great. My friend was extremely late. The waiter didn’t make me feel uncomfortable and they allowed me to wait for her until I couldn’t take it anymore and ordered my tea. The tea was delicious. I tried two, one I was familiar with and it was my favorite and one Tea I have not heard of before. Both were delicious. I ordered the gluten free service. It was very good. I didn’t like the chocolate pudding. Other than that, very good. I wasn’t able to try the regular service but my friend said it was very good. Will definitely come again to experience the High Tea.
At high tea, the scones and quiche were cold and too dry as opposed to being freshly prepared and warm out of the oven.
Made a reservation for a party of 6 but when we arrive at 2:25pm they said they were closed. The information on Yelp said they are open until 10pm. At least give prior notice if your closure is different from what is stated. They just seem like don't want to serve us. They relocated us to a bar area but service was slow. We ordered some iced cappuccino but they were really watered down. And a cup of regular coffee is tasteless.... Very disappointed in this place!
Loved meeting more of the team today! We were assisted by Ash for our party of 5. He did a great job and we felt quite at home. This was our second week in a row and I think we could have easily stayed for dinner as well because we had such a great time. The experience left us so overjoyed we immediately began planning our next visit. I'm just so grateful this particular tea exists!!
After a full weekend following the Royal Wedding in Windsor and satellite parties here in the states I was thrilled to know that my favourite place in Atlanta was also honouring the family. The food was delicious. We were treated with so much respect and kindness. Harry and team did an excellent job and we look forward to more tea there. Thank you for providing this opportunity.
However, it's extremely hard to leave. Please consider offering an extended tea service that allows us to pay extra and stay on site for refills or whatever. A double tea? So untraditional perhaps. We come to the St. Regis to escape. Lol. We don't want to go back into the world once there. I suppose we should call a real estate agent and buy there. :)
Thanks again for having us!
What a wonderful time. The women in my family gathered together for a ladies tea. It was splendid! The ambiance is incredible and the tea and food was delicious. It was truly a lovely and special experience.
Ash was an outstanding waiter !!!! We love st Regis
lovely formal tea with delicious food and excellent assortment of teas. our servers Harry and Davidson (?) were outstanding. Be prepared for high price pp for wine or cocktail, and for extra charge by valet for free parking if you dont ask for car by 5p (we got there at 505 and were charged). also check online if menu/price changes after you book; I had reserved for 3 of us over Royal Wedding weekend and was not notified of increased price/menu shift; I happened to see it in the paper (we cancelled, bec. of cost/meny items/no notice). Otherwise a lovely leisurely experience in the old style of high tea.
They were short-staffed when I was there and we did not get our food and tea until an hour and a half later.
lovely place to spend time with a friend. We went there for afternoon tea. Ash, our attendant, was very knowledgeable about the history of afternoon tea and our selections. We did not feel rushed and were not unnecessarily interrupted. Would definitely go again.
We went for afternoon tea to celebrate my friend’s birthday. It was a great experience! We were told the history of afternoon tea and of the St. Regis, and twelve different types of teas were presented to us. The afternoon tea menu changes monthly, and the staff were extremely accommodating to our dietary restrictions (gluten-free and vegetarian). I highly recommend it for those looking for a quiet, calming place to celebrate a special occasion.
I took my mother for afternoon tea as a Mother's Day gift. We both loved it. Great variety of both tea and food. I don't know if it was worth the price to do again. But it was something to treat my mom with.
Amazing! They were so sweet to my son as well. So pleasant!
11:30 am we arrive. 11:30 we are really hungry and ask for bread to munch on before ordering. 12 Noon-- NO bread. We ask again. Waiter asks what kind of bread. By then we have ordered and the food and bread arrive at the same time. And to our dismay the food was not tasty. Shame. we had been there at Christmas and the food and service were lovely.
Atmosphere/ ambiance and service was great. It was a little slow to get the bill at the end. Overall it was a wonderful time.
Disappointing- reservation for a birthday tea well in advance— arrived early to see table that would be best for conversation- shown to a table exceedingly large for 4 people- when asked about other, intimate seating, was told ALL other tables were specifically reserved ——in the 1.5-2 hours we were there, at least 4 tables were completely empty the entire time —Also, special occasion of birthday not recognized despite specifically mentioning and the obvious presents— service minimal- although I have been 7-8 times, after these blunders, will not be back -
The food was great. Waitress was great. Kitchen was SLOW. We waited over an hour for our food.
Definitely not worth the price. Food was blah and tea was mediocre. A big disappointment.
My friends and I had a wonderful experience at the St.Regis afternoon tea. Great service, imaginative food and sweets and really good tea. Our server took the time to explain all the teas and the caffeine levels for us as well as the history of Mrs. Astor's afternoon tea tradition. They offer free valet parking which was wonderful too, my only suggestion would be to have a bench outside the lobby to sit on while you wait for your car to arrive- my friend was in a cast and it was uncomfortable for her to stand. The whole experience was great.
Ahh, civilized tea with good friends, what more could a gal want? We had a lovely time enjoying tea and the various tower of treats that accompanied our tea selection. Our severs were informed, prompt and pleasant men. There was a function going on so for a while it became a bit loud for a proper tea atmosphere but it didn’t last long so the staff must have corrected the issue in some manner. We will be back! (We didn’t love that there was a two dollar charge for valet parking with validation. It wasn’t the price that was the problem it was that we were anaware so we didn’t have correct change to tip the drivers).
For $55 a person I expected more. No champagne included. Not worth it for a pot of tea and mediocre snacks. Waiters seemed understaffed and uninterested.
We love coming to Astor Court for afternoon tea to celebrate birthdays! The service is top-notch, and the tea is wonderful!
I went to the Astor Court for my birthday luncheon. The service was so slow that tables around us just got up and left. We waited it out and our food was excellent. The ambience is simply divine. I’ve been numerous times and the service is slow but this was on the scale of embarrassing.
That was different. Happy to see the variety each month.
We received an email from AC thru Open Table on Friday that our Saturday tea reservation was "cancelled by the restaurant" with no explanation given, so we had to make plans for tea at the Four Seasons instead. My Friday phone inquiry to the AC manager was not returned until Saturday suggesting an earlier time than our original reservation. This is my first such experience ever (including New York, London, and Paris tea).
Went to Astor Court for high tea , the hotel ,the St Regis is gorgeous.
The tea selection is great. I had an amazing Vanilla Roibos tea. The menu served on the tower is new, with more health conscious food. There are adequate sandwiches, and a quiche option The sweets are multiple as well, but after you eat the savory food, you may not have room for the sweets. There was no live music, that would have been nice!
The time between tea arriving, and the tower of food was too long ( over one hour). You are provided a cherry scone while you are waiting for your tower. By the time the tower arrived, I was full on tea, the timing should be better.
The waiter in my section ,should have been more attentive, at the price of the high tea $ 55, up from $ 45 and without champagne, service should be impeccable.He told the story of High tea to the table next to mine, never to my table, and he did not serve the table when I arrived( my guest was already seated), I had to ask the hostess to send a waiter to the table.
I was a bit disappointed with this visit, having had previously great experiences at Astor Court
This is one of the nicest hotels in the city, but it didn’t feel like it on New year’s day. It was a small buffet with few choices. The best part was the cocktails and house special Bloody Mary. The omelette Bar was very good but everything else was so so. No bagels for the lox. Only crackers. No bread, really. Not enough servers.
We were looking for a bfast place where our family could relax and catch up with a special family friend. Astor Court provided the perfect atmosphere for our gathering—opportunity for conversation, unrushed and relaxing time. We made a res on Open Table and arrived 2 min ahead but the hostess was obviously unprepared for our party of 8. Our well traveled adult children were quite surprised at the level of serivce and appt for this level hotel. The food was very good (4) spinach was in omelette when requested no spinach but stuff happens; and food is was delivered together with serviers reaching inf fromt of and across our party. No one offered to take our coats so they were bunched up around us. Not a horrible thing but for this level hotel we all agree that the serivce from front door to table was noticeably less than polished.
Breakfast after seeing Santa. Group of 9, and it took about an hour for the food to come out.
Always a consistently classic Wonderful experience in all possible ways!

Astor was fine. Your parking situation—a nightmare. One of my guests was charged $15 for parking for an event. Couldn’t get it back. Too many cars and people. Embarrassing to me since invited the two as my guests. Your Astor Court manager will
Most likely help me get the money back but I don’t have time to follow up
Love coming at Christmas for the gingerbread house and all the decorations! And our attentive waiter, Harry, was the best!!
Great special experience. Solid service and good. This was about the experience.
As usual the Astor Court at the St. Regis Atlanta did not disappoint. We came to celebrate my mother's birthday and the staff went above and beyond to make sure her day was recognized. The service was phenomenal and the food was delicious. But really, we just came for the experience which was wonderful. We had such a fantastic time and have already made plans to return for Mom's next birthday!
We are the Atlanta Tea Party Club and this is our new favourite place
Beautiful room. Excellent cuisine. Very disappointing service. My wife and I booked for brunch on a Saturday. We received a very nice welcome to a beautiful room. The food was outstanding, but the service was terrible. We had to catch a server and request everything. This started with a spoon for coffee, then repeatedly for more water and coffee. Our empty suite and low wrappers were never removed.
