    This is my go-to for business breakfasts in Center City. Good food, quiet enough for a conversation. Service is professional but slow.

    I read the reviews prior to going and noticed many were unhappy. We were very pleased with our experience. Everyone was welcoming and helpful. We thought the food was very good as was the champagne. We had fun picking out our tea and the only concern I had was that the water was not hot enough nor was there enough for all of us to eke out a second cup from our tea leaves. I felt the Travelzoo deal was worth it for four of us and we enjoyed the experience!

    We did the afternoon tea with our daughters and absolutely enjoyed the experience. Our server Khadijah was very knowledgeable about the Teas and her service exceptional.

    $75/person for Easter Brunch - you would think the menu would’ve been much better & the mimosas to at least be bottomless, ESPECIALLY at a place like the Sofitel. One glass of champagne or mimosa was included, and the menu for Easter Brunch wasn’t good at all. It was a brunch with No omelette station, no waffles or pancakes, no rice or pasta, no bread station, no breakfast foods of any kind. The rolls they had out were not warm at all. The potatoes had zero flavoring and were somewhat hard. Honestly, the only decent thing were some of the desserts. However, some of the creme brûlées weren’t even cooked all the way through. I had one where it was pure liquid and not the custard texture of a creme brûlée. The staff were all nice though.

    We have never been here before but we reserved a spot for Easter brunch. It was a bit pricey but thought it was fine for a holiday buffet. we ended up not eating here though. You can sense some tension with staff, our waitress was SUPER sweet though. We checked out the buffet and there was no breakfast of any kind. It was a unique combination of food, meats, seafood and charcuterie and just not what we personally were looking for. I’m sure this is a great place for some, it just wasn’t for us. When you think brunch, you do expect some breakfast options or more variety for the price. There wasn’t a lot of people which is fine, just noting. Also the chairs were a bit torn up. These are all fixable and I don’t want to deter anyone from going. Our first impression just wasn’t the best. We expected a bit more for a hotel restaurant.

    I have to be honest, I was really disappointed in the high tea. I had a really great experience last year - the food was delicious, the tea was lovely, and the service was great. It was relaxing and calm. This year, the sandwiches were mostly just white bread with very little in them and the water for our tea was served at room temperature, almost cold. We were also reminded multiple times that we had an hour long time limit. Not the same relaxing, enjoyable experience at all.

    I had a turkey blt and a glass of pinot grigio. The food was quite good and the staff was friendly and courteous. We went on a Saturday afternoon and the restaurant was pretty quiet and not too busy.

    While the food and ambience were excellent as was the service, it was disappointing to have to wait over 30 minutes to be seated, especially after arriving 30 minutes prior to our reservation time.

    Our high tea was truly enjoyable. Korinne did a great job serving. I would like to have had just a little more food. It was really good!
