Lovely afternoon tea. Great thing to do while in town with my Grandmother.
Our server Jeanne, was so sweet and nice. She provided excellent service and tea recommendations beyond the usual english black tea. Would definitely recommend!!
the tea at the salon is a wonderful experience overall with good friendly service. my only concern is that the tea was very weak as it had not been brewed long enough maybe that is an english thing but then again thats what it is supposed to be english tea
I have always enjoyed tea parlors but this was my first time at Windsor Court. Not only was the food delicious, but the cozy yet regal atmosphere was worth every penny. I received so many wonderful comments on social media outlets when I shared my Le Salon experience.
Mother Daughter day with my 11 year old. Very nice experience.
We were there for high tea. The service is top notch. The tea (and everything else) was very good.
This place is great but you probably wouldn’t want to go here every day. It’s a special occasion type of thing and it’s about $37 per person.
Le Salon did a fantastic job helping us celebrate my aunt's 94th birthday. She truly had a wonderful time. Thank you
Went for afternoon tea for my birthday. Food came long before tea. Tea pot was not on the table, so when you wanted a refill you had to wait for the server to pour. Server was very busy, so long waits for tea. Food okay.
To clarify service rating. Lisa is 5/5 excellent. She is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about her craft and teas. However, she seemed to need some help with staffing so she didn’t have to do everything. We love Windsor Court and afternoon tea and can’t wait to get back. As an aside, I would highly recommend fixing the water pressure in the shower. Extremely poor and barely able to get shampoo out of one’s hair. Thanks again...David Berry, MD
It was a nice way to spend the afternoon enjoying a traditional afternoon tea, with delicious tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets.
My granddaughter and I had a great time at he Mardi Gras tea. The indians danced and played music. There were decorations, balloons, and masks for the guest. The service was prompt and the food delicious. Don't be afraid to bring children. The staff is very accommodating.
We enjoyed the first Mardi Gras Tea of the season and were treated to Mardi Gras Indians dancing through the salon. We ordered the spiced vanilla chai tea and really enjoyed it. Typically, you would get a salmon sandwich, but we mentioned that I had a fish allergy and they gave us an extra cucumber, instead. That was so wonderful. The entire afternoon was really great and we can't wait to go back.
A lovely time to slow down and savor the afternoon. Everyone should do this at least once.
Service was great. The server was excellent. The Windsor poinsettia had a sweet personality with sparkling, bubbly surprise. Tea was fragrant (we had the rose champagne and some pomegranate tea). The sandwiches were delicious. The scones were soft. Loved the sauces, esp. the vanilla bean whipped cream. The custom surprised dessert were small and dainty. We enjoyed our experience! It was lovely!
The seating was prompt and the atmosphere was signature Windsor Court. Our server did an outstanding job of multi-tasking many tables at once without ever letting my cup stay empty for more than a minute or two. The live music was a treat and the food was unique: a few new tea sandwiches such as Curry Chicken along with the classic cucumber/egg. Le Salon's gingerbread and orange/cranberry scones are almost worth fighting over.
Something that could be worked on is a suggested dress code to encourage patrons not to attend tea in sweatshirts and jeans.
Last, but extremely important, is a constant problem which kept me away for a few years: the bill. For some strange reason, every single time I have tea at the Windsor Court, I am overcharged (this time it was by $100.00). I was charged for 4 adults instead of 2 adults and 2 children. By the time tax and gratuity are added on 2 adults, this is an outstanding amount. The Windsor Court has a reputation for this. Worse, after ingratiating themselves to a 22% gratuity by including it in the cost of the tea, there is yet ANOTHER line for "Tip" indicating that the patron should leave ANOTHER tip. This billing procedure appears tacky and downright greedy. All sense of propriety is tossed out of the window when they stick their hand out for a second tip (which they know they're doing - they are the ones who created the receipt!) thus ruining the afternoon tea and sending the guests off on a sour note.
If the Windsor Court would fix this problem it would change everything.
Le Salon at Windsor Court is always a pleasure. Server was great. Food was yum. Tea and drinks were flowing! Go for the holidays with friends or if you like your family enough - its a fun treat.
Christmas tea with family
Lovely Christmas tea. Everything was perfect.
Beautiful and charming! The lobby is spectacular at Christmas time.
3 teenage girls had a blast getting dressed up for tea, and enjoyed the ritual nod the food and of course, the tea. A lovely experience. The food is amazing.
The price is high; 4 people for high tea is over $250. Parking is not included but gratuity is.
It is a wonderful tradition and a gracious 1 and 1/2 hours. I would enthusiastically recommend tea at the Windsor Court for a special occasion.
The Holiday Tea was perfect! It was such a wonderful experience with my granddaughters....everything was beautiful. This has now become a tradition which many of my family members and friends want to join as well!
The Holiday Tea was a wonderful experience! Our waiter, Sean, took excellent care of us!
Le Salon is a great place for high tea at the beautiful Windsor Court Hotel. I loved that they were so accommodating and provided a great atmosphere! They even personalized a little plate for my friend's birthday with one of the items she enjoyed the most!
This could have been a lot nicer had our waitress not waited to pour tea until each food serving. We had to constantly ask for more tea. In addition we had a large party, and they charged 22% gratuity-on top of the taxed total!
Great tradition At Christmas. The tea was delicious and the service was great! I loved the harp music as well.
The Royal Tea was a lovely Way to spend Christmas Eve with my two daughters. The presentation of the sandwiches and sweets accompanying the tea was perfect. The tea room also set a elegant holiday tone. My only issue was that the service was a bit slow for the high price of the event.
Not what we expected. Not worth the time and money !
While I enjoyed the food the music and the ambiance, my favorite part of my experience at Christmas T was my waitress Catalina. There was something special about her that was simply charming and genuine. That meant a lot to me.
The holiday afternoon tea was a special and memorable event complimented by the beautiful decor and harp music sweetened by gracious staff and delicious afternoon tea fare. Would definitely recommend as an annual event to share the holiday spirit.
Always wonderful but price goes up every year and now a 22% tip added to the bill. Has become very pricey.
Let Salon does a beautiful Holiday Tea. Our server Jane was wonderful, very attentive and we enjoyed talking to her! Love the food and of course our tea!
Lovely holiday experience. For the money, more sandwiches/scones, less sweets. The option to make these selections would be appreciated.
The lobby area was absolutely gorgeous decorated for Christmas. Tea with my family was wonderful. Sandwiches, scones, drinks and tea were all awesome. Only one conplaint. Tea could have been served in a more timely manner cause by the time we got our second cup it was cold.
The service was perfect and the ambiance was magical with the tree and Christmas decorations.
Service with Lisa was as wonderful as usual. We have been going to tea since 1991 and it has always been absolutely lovely. I go to tea usually 3 -4 times a year any where from 2-8 people in our group. I even gave a bridal shower for about 25 ladies 15 years ago. But, I would never be able to do that again. As the price which has climbed through the years has been noticeable, yesterday's charge was ridiculous. $69 per person! The experience did not match the cost. They served the initial cocktails with the first course, so there is not enough time to just sit and relax and visit with friends. The next 2 courses were brought out while we still had items on the serving dishes, felt rushed. Bread was not fresh and dessert tray was very skimpy. I don't thick you can cut almond cake into smaller pieces. Same for these other 2 little cakes. We split 2 little truffles. Strawberries were nice. As far as the 22% mandatory tip goes, that is unnecessary. This is basically a menu where everyone in the place receives the same thing with the exception of beverages and teas. I have never been to a restaurant where the gratuity was this much and included with the check for less than 6 people. I was actually going to attend tea with 4 people this weekend and with another friend the following day. I chose to call ahead to let my friends know of the current charge and we all decided to forego Windsor Court and choose somewhere else. For myself, to attend tea 3 times was going to cost $210 plus the parking each time and I could not justify the cost and neither could the other ladies. With the constant rise in cost and the quality of the food diminishing over the years, I would have to do my research of reviews before returning. Again, Lisa was a wonderful server.
We visited for the Holiday Tea, which is one of the special event teas throughout the year. It was wonderful all the way around, and we had such a memorable experience. There was a small group of high school age kids who sang carols and did a bell concert. After that, a lady played Christmas carols on the harp. We were there with my two older relatives and my 3 yr old. Everyone had a ball and the waitstaff was particularly kind and attentive to my 3 yr old. We will definitely be back for another special event tea.
Holiday tea at the Le Salon is a must!
A wonderful Christmas tradition, the Holiday Tea is a wonderful experience. The decorations are outstanding, and the tea service is outstanding.
We have been coming to Windsor Court for friend and family special occasion gatherings for decades, including wedding and baby showers. We have seen it change over the years, including expanded options and steep price increases (more than tripled prices over the years), but have continued our traditions, because we love the whole tea ritual, and the ambiance. It is a luxurious experience. This year, however, our party of 4 seasoned Christmas tea celebrants all noticed a marked change. Everything was micro sized! The undersized scones, the onebite sweets, and even the poinsettia champagne cocktail glasses and napkins for the lap were all quite shrunken. We had a good laugh, but it really isn't funny, considering we are paying premium tea prices for a lovely full tea experience. The service was good this year, which has not always been the case in recent years, but the sample sizes made it disappointing.
