Lady Mendl's is an unconventionally chic tea salon housed within a Georgian brownstone in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan.
An opulent five-course tea is served in an eclectic and whimsical parlor by a doting staff.

Patrons sip tea from hand culled vintage Wedgwood teacups as they nibble dainty finger sandwiches and house baked scones.

$59 pre fixe tea served Wednesday through Sunday, as well as holidays.

Children under 12 are not permitted.

The experience exceeded expectations. There was no special occasion, it was a friend's get-together. I arrived exactly on time and my friend arrived late. I thought for sure they would cancel our reservation but I was allowed to wait in a nice Parlor room with no harassment from the staff. At first, we were seated close to the door but they quickly moved us to the back where the ambience was better. The sandwiches were delicious if a bit small. The tea kept flowing. The staff was attentive. Everything was authentic- from the fire in the hearth to the clotted cream. My only complaint is the dishes did not match. They were not part of a set. All in all, I would absolutely recommend this place. We received far more than we were expecting for only $59.

We enjoyed our tea, especially the ambience and the service. Overall the food was pretty good although it was sweet heavy as expected with tea. Wish they had a few more champagne options. Would come again!

Went for the high tea experience and while the location and historical nature of the setting was great the food was ordinary. Sandwiches were a little stale. The scones were a little hard and had a horrible crumbly texture ( worst I’ve ever eaten)and then a 20 layered crepe/cake which was too creamy.
The tea was nice although only 4 choices.
Overall a little disappointed.

I hadn't been there in years a and was pleased to find it was just as I remembered. I took my fiance and he was happy with the food and tea selection. Great afternoon at Lady Mendls!
