    Perfect except that all the surrounding tables were cleared of flowers and were bare. We had tea at 4:30 and although our table looked amazing, it was disappointing to see bare table clothed tables everywhere else. It was totally raise the mood to at least leave flowers on all tables until after closing.

    There was no communication between servers. We ordered two teas, and we didn’t get the second tea until the last course. At which point, we were full and weren’t going to finish it anyway. One server said we wouldn’t be charged for the second tea, but since another server got the check for us, we were charged. Since we spent over 2 hours here, we just wanted to leave and didn’t bother asking to take off the extra tea. Two of the three courses were sweet, and it was honestly just too much sugar. Two savory courses would have been better. Due to supply chain issues, they were out of 3 teas. This is not the fault of the restaurant, but they should have offered comparable teas, instead of leaving them on the menu.

    We were given three courses for our tea. First off-the tea was excellent-though they were out of the three most popular and of course the ones we were excited to try. First two courses came and they were great. Everything g was delicious and fresh. We were eagerly anticipating the last course, the dessert course. Let me say that there were 3 of us. 2 people had a nut allergy. So two plates were different from my plate. On the plates were about 5-6 bite sized desserts. I honestly can’t say much good about 5 of them. One dessert was marginal. Since we were all friends I was interested to see if the nut free plates were better. They were not. One item I was sure going to be okay was a “chocolate” dipped strawberry. That item is hard to mess up. Somehow, Chez Philippe managed to ruin it. It couldn’t have been chocolate but rather a candy coating that looked like chocolate. It tasted bad and left a funky flavor in our mouths. The dessert was the last course and I am glad it was. It was awful. I’m not a chef, and I am sure I could’ve produced a better sampling than what was given. If they had started with the dessert course I would have thought it was a foreshadowing of a disaster tea. Even just some kind of cookie offering would’ve been much much better than what was served.

    Our experience at the afternoon English Tea was fantastic. We were there from 3-4pm. Service and food were great. Noise level was pleasantly quiet and there was no difficulty talking to my wife in a normal conversational level. Definitely would go to "high tea" at Chez Phillipe again. :) The chocolate chai tea as very good.

    This was my first time for the Afternoon Tea at Chez Philippe experience and that is exactly what it is, an experience. Server Kevin was amazing, the 3 different courses of a variety of finger sandwiches, a freshly made scone and an array of dessert bites. Add the champagne and herbal teas - it was wonderful. Highly recommend, ladies. Great for a girls' day starter.

    This was the first stop on a 16 day road trip, and probably the most elegant one. Chez Philippe is a beautiful restaurant. Our server, Chris was very attentive, and the tea was delicious: 4 tea sandwiches, one of the largest tea scones I have ever had, and 4 amazing desserts (most of which were boxed for the road). The price was reasonable for this fantastic tea.

    Afternoon tea. Sweet staff, lovely room. Amazing and yummy sandwiches (savory). Tea not brewed correctly on my oolong, got English breakfast instead of Earl Gray. Slow, slow, slow service. Forgot champagne until we asked. Sweets were okay, but not amazing. Scone was hot, we found that odd (used to room temp scones).

    The tea was wonderful as were the scones, sandwiches and desserts. Service was not what I expected from the Peabody. We had to ask for knives to spread the jam and ask for refills of water. There was also a water bug crawling on our table cloth.

    Meager servings, standard and boring flavors, only the scone was remarkable. The clotted cream was so much less creamy than it should have been. Alot of pomp and not much substance. Excellent service, but not worth the expense or the wait for a reservation.
