The staff was most gracious and welcoming to the few of us that ventured out post Hurricane Barry providing a lovely break from a very damp and worrisome weekend.

We celebrated my Mom’s 85th Birthday. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Lisa is a wonderful and friendly hostess. We would be disappointed if she wasn’t there to make our experience extra-special!
We will return again.

We have been celebrating my daughter’s birthday at Windsor Court tea ever since she was 2 years old. This year she celebrated her sweet 16! We love our tradition and Windsor Court never disappoints - top notch service and high quality food & tea. They always accommodate any special requests too! Our server - Lisa - knows us by name & we look forward to seeing her every year!

We had to remind our server that we didn’t receive our tea sandwiches. Our server was stretched thin and I believe by adding more servers the experience would have been more enjoyable.

I have been visiting Le Salon for years. However I am disappointed that tea isn’t served right away. It is only being served with scones. I was looking forward to a hot cup of tea with my tea sandwiches.
Still lovely, but I am not fond of the change.

Very quiet in the salon this day. Several empty table that were set up for tea. Service was fast and everything was delicious. Even though service was fast we enjoyed it at the pace we wanted. We were even brought extras of several of the courses. Always first class.

For the price you are paying for the services,you would think that they wouldn’t be pushy if you had friends running late. Also I’m pretty sure the pastries were not baked there or local even,it was extremely disappointing.

We were seated for 20 minutes before we were even asked what we wanted to drink. We got sandwiches 30 minutes after we arrived. We then got scones and did not want to eat them until we got the tea which was served 53 minutes after we were seated. The dessert tray came out and was placed on a bar behind us for 20 minutes before we got then. I think a 20 % gratuity was too high especially for the serve we did not get. Elegant environment and tea decorations.

We have been frequent patrons of the Windsor Court Hotel Tea. We have always loved the experience. However, yesterday, it was Louisiana Derby weekend in New Orleans and a large group of women wearing hats celebrating the occasion came in. What is usually a tranquil, relaxing experience with a harp or piano playing in the background, turned into a loud, disconcerting experience. Perhaps Le Salon could ask large groups to assemble and greet one another in a separate room before disturbing other guests that came for a relaxing experience.

When I called to confirm my reservation I specifically asked to be seated at a table and chair setting not at a sofa/coffee table setting. I was seated at 2 living room style chairs with a coffee/ end table. There were regular tables for 2 in the area.

Our server was nice but not very attentive to our needs. Actually We felt discriminated against. We had to flag her down to have our tea cups refilled. I had to ask for a knife so I could cut my scones. Neither of us had knives but she brought us only one knife so we were forced to share.

The table right next to us was served in a much better fashion. Almost as soon as one of them would take a sip of tea it was replenished. Ours were not.

The Ritz Carlton not far away provides much better service to ALL of its customers.

I was disappointed in the Holiday tea - only 1 diffuser for 5 different types of tea served - so everyone's tea tasted like a mix of black, green and white tea. Water wasn't super hot - and the steeping times for each tea wasn't observed. Also we had the same tea sandwiches, scones and sweets from previous years - the menu never changes. It would be nice to see some variety and personality in the food - and don't serve lobster unless it is great lobster. My mistake was taking everyone for high tea - during the holidays - when Le Salon is at capacity. It must may not be possible to serve proper high tea to so many guests at one time. I'm going to have to try out other spots to see if there's a better tea out there. I do love the ambiance of the Windsor Court - the space is beautiful and cozy with all of the couches and beautiful furnishings. They just need to up their tea game.
