We are a group of five and we enjoyed the afternoon tea. It is a set of the dessert including a decent tea. The food quality is great.
The service is fine.

We think it is a good value. We will come back again.

Quiet, good drinks. Good wine list. Nice starters, but they can add up quickly.

The service was terrible. It took 20 minutes between sitting down and them taking our order (it wasn't crowded). Once tea was ordered we had to flag them down to order champagne (that came right away). We had each been through 3 pots of tea (at least an hour) before they brought the food. The sandwich bread was stale. And while the room is beautiful, it just didn't make up for the lackluster service and food. I won't be choosing the Laurel Court for my next special event.

regretably I had higher expectations, ie, tablecloths on tables, fancier dineware, cozys on tea pots, and prettier furniture, the tables were like barn little tables, the savories were a bit dry, and we were not served the bean and the other salad advertized, i noticed when we got home,, and also just did not measure up,,, sorry, as the HOTE is still beauatiful and elegant,, the people in the TEA Room very nice, however, I imagine, been so large, they had to omit the pretty,,, oh well, will try to find a place, where HI TEA is served as ENglish like,,, chintz tablecloths, nice tea pots, and table ware, etc, soo, overall, it was just like having tea anywhere by the road, except the elegance of the building saves the day,,

We had afternoon tea there. Most everything was delightful, classy, and pleasant. You don't go for the food, but rather the experience. My only beef about the place was that it was unclear that the price would be $120/person fixed price - before taxes and tip. The website made it look like they had two tea options - the regular tea for $55/person and the holiday tea. It was unclear that the only option on Jan 1 was the holiday tea. The menu did not state the price anywhere. I don't think the price is worth it during that time. I can eat at Chez Panisse for less and much better. I would go back during the regular afternoon tea pricing though.

For a place like this and taken the price into consideration the food was very disappointing - simply not good and very overpriced.

When I booked this reservation online I told them that my wife and I were on our honeymoon. They gave us champagne and a beautifully crafted dessert to celebrate our marriage. Food and drinks were amazing. Service was a little bit slow (not too sure if thats because I am used to the NYC and SF is more laid back) but it allowed my wife and I to take a step back and enjoy the night at this restaurant.

A holiday celebration lunch for four at an iconic place. A must at Christmas just to see The Fairmont all gussied up. The restaurant is old school beautiful. Started with wine and cocktails..a nice selection and beautifully presented. We split 2 gruyere popovers. Delicious but a little pricey..and just 2 little smears of butter on the side. We all had salads..Nicoise, chopped, and one with grains. You can add a protein like salmon or chicken. All delicious. The menu is limited but everything on it was appealing. I recommend using the Park Whiz app to find parking. I paid 9.00 for across-the-street valet parking for 6 hours. I will definitely return next Christmas.
