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.

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

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.

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.

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!
