Loved the atmosphere and the harp music. Tea and service were exceptional. Food served during our tea was just ok. Overall great experience, but have had much better food at other afternoon teas.

Very cute high tea. Would benefit from a slightly better check-in process but would bring family back here for this!

This was our first tea at Le Salon but it will definitely not be our last. Walking up to our low table with the beautiful furniture and place settings set the tone for this lovely experience. Our server, Paige, was fabulous. She helped to make our first experience so special. Starting off with delicious cocktails was spectacular!!! The nibbles (finger sandwiches, scones with toppings, and desserts) were sooooo tasty!!!! The three of us at our table each got to select a different tea and we shared our pots with each other. So fun to sample the different selections!!! Calming harp accompanied our event. Can’t wait to attend one of the themed teas - Mardi Gras, Princess, Prohibition, and Mad Hatter. Hope to be back very soon!!!! “Pinkies up!!!”

We enjoyed our tea very much, It was elegant and welcoming. The food was good and the service was outstanding we had our 4 year old granddaughter with us and she was treated very well. The harp playing was very enjoyable and calming. As we were leaving we made reservations for August.

Beautiful tea service. The highlight of the service was the pianist. She went out of her way to create atmosphere and play music that was interesting and "paired" perfectly with tea. She even found and played an obscure musical score from my favorite movie. It literally brought tears and made it even more special.

The ambiance for high tea was beautiful at the Windsor. Our attendant Jean was very knowledgeable of the teas, the art work, the history of the hotel. She made wonderful recommendations and was very attentive. We decided based on this experience to mist definitely return and have been sharing our experience with friends and family.

We had a great time at ale Salon! Paige was a fantastic tea steward, and Miss Helen was a great hostess. She worked with us when we delayed our teatime by 30 minutes. We loved the food as well. Wish we could have tried more blends than just the 2 we had.

You can’t beat the service here. The food is ok- not great- but I was in it more for the experience. Just don’t show up starving bc you will still be hungry when you leave- it’s tea, not a meal. I’m not sure everyone realizes that.

I absolutely loved this tea!! It was one of my favorites starting off with a nice cocktail and some beautiful piano playing. It was the perfect way to celebrate my day (birthday). The staff at the hotel were more than accommodating and the hostess was absolutely the sweetest! I highly recommend this actually filling and classy tea.

Definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon week in Nola! It is magical and beautiful! A must-do if you enjoy the idea of a transformation back in time or just want to pretend you're in Downton Abbey! Our server was kind and explanatory about the varieties of teas and made our experience wonderful!

Everything from the greeting, to table service, food, and tea was impeccable. My *only* nitpick is that there were SO MANY kids there. Outnumbered the adults, I swear. I’d love to have a day or time available for adults only tea.

We spend one afternoon with girlfriend enjoying their tea. It is a favorite event. The variety of teas is wonderful. The tea sandwiches are yummy. The scones are excellent. My favorite are the gingerbread at Christmas time! The light desserts are a perfect ending!! I enjoy listening to the harpist which lends itself to the relaxing and luxurious atmosphere. This is our third year and we plan to keep coming back!!

Afternoon tea at LeSalon is always a nice experience. Harp and piano player provided nice Xmas music without disturbing our conversation. The English inspired food was as good as always as was the selection of speciality teas

First time in 15 years of Christmas tea with my daughter that we were disappointed.
For the price of this event, the last thing I want to feel is rushed by the server. As soon as we got our drinks, she brought the sandwich plate, before asking about our tea selection. We normally enjoy tea for at least 90 minutes, we were presented the bill at noon. Our reservation started at 11:30. We had to ask for more sugar and tea. I don’t feel she was attentive to our overall experience, more she was trying to hurry us along.
The Salon was not full, so there was no need to rush us out.
Also, the harp music was beautiful but should be pleasant background music. It was much too loud to try and hold a conversation.
I seriously hate to be critical because this is part of our Christmas tradition that we look forward to each year. We meet with family members and normally have an awesome time. This year, I feel like we were overcharged for the quality of service.
La Salon, Windsor Court, you can do better.
