The service was great. The food was excellent. Even though one of our courses ran out, the waitress provided us options to make up for it. Only complaint was that one main course was a little cold, as a result of the change in decision for the other meal. The harpist was great. She played all different types of music, and was excellent. The dining hall was gorgeous. We will come back again, for some of the other events.

While the ambience, music and service was great, the food was quite poor. We ordered the soup and it came lukewarm. We ordered a salad w/nuts and strawberries on the side because my husband cannot digest any nuts or seeds. The plain salad came and we had to ask twice for the nuts and strawberries. My girlfriend and I ordered the fish entree and my husband and other friend ordered the filet minon w/scallops. The fish was overcooked, dry with little taste. The scallops were still raw in the middle and filets were like the size of a half dollar. All entrees were served room temp, not hot! Overall, would never choose to go here for the food again. Our friends were quite disgusted and reconfirmed the reason why they don’t normally go out to dinner on Valentines. Quality of food and portions are very small and lack overall taste.

Both food and service an the setting is very sophisticated. Parking was easy too.

Started with greeting by host in a ski jacket and seated in room with only 4 tables occupied. Service initially poor and slow. When the meal came only two came out at the same time. My son had eggs Benedict prosciutto with avocado. Sounded great. Unfortunately the prosciutto moved off the avocado to reveal blackened dotted avocados. Horrible. My French toast frittata came cold. So both were sent back (after waiting 30 minutes) to redo. I asked for more coffee while waiting. Third dish came out. Tea tier sandwiches. Alimony, unappeting and expensive $27. So when coffee refill did not arrive I went to kitchen to check status on food and request coffee. Host still in ski jacket working in kitchen. Then he brings out coffe in a new white China cup. Places in front of me. I am stunned. The entire rim is covered with lipstick. I have to point it to him and he says his are are poor and he couldn’t see it. When I ask stays of food I am told they are sorry but short staffed. Finally I had it and told them we would leave. Said food was coming and it would be complimentary. Told them I am not an opportunist who complains to get a free meal. Told them to keep it but charge me for the 27 sandwich because we took some bites while waiting for the cooked food. They did charge. I paid and left. As an aside even when I used the bathroom it was not clean. A waste of money in a tired old grand location that had lost it. Really too bad but from decor, to food to service this place fails in every level.

The soup is good. There was one sandwich. Cucumber with a sweet cream cheese. It should be savory not sweet. Multiple tiny bite size things. A deviled egg. Tomato skewer with cheese and cauliflower. Seriously? Just put some nice savory, veggie sandwiches and maybe one warm cheesy item. The scone was as awful. The tea was ok. The sweets were. Err poor quality. I won’t be returning

The service was excellent. Our waiter was very professional, and pleasant. However, the food was stale. The seafood was not fresh. The ice cream was freezer burned and rubbery. The ambiance is nice, and the restaurant has potential, but it is not living up to that potential.

The ambiance was truly wonderful from the location, structure, interior, music, and decor. I am trying to remember our server's name and I think it was Felix or possible Fernand (my apologies for not remembering) was outstanding and elevated the rating. Food was good, pastries were tremendous, teas beautifully presented, the roasted beet salad was lovely, the chef, Michelle, was incredibly accommodating and pivoted on the menu items without hesitation. We had a chance to just sit and take in the ambiance and it was as if we had traveled elsewhere. We would all highly recommend this charming French Bistro tucked in the city of Pasadena.

The service was great, scones delicious, and champagne brunch deal reasonable with good selections. The atmosphere and decor is elaborate but not stuffy. Everyone felt it was a great new find.

Usually I leave overly satisfied which is why I continue to return for the last 4 years. May have been an off day or maybe because I came on a weekday instead of a weekend? However I can always say that tea is usually phenomenal, with hot and cold foods, its a good place to go if you are new at high tea.

Now years later, it hasn’t changed that much. Came for high tea. Positives: the food is good and very lovely presentation. The tea is good. The ambiance is lovely. The harpist was excellent. Desserts and scone were great Negatives: very slow service, inexperienced servers. A little noisy. No tablecloths for high tea. The veggie tier was tasty but all the savory items had sweetness. Sweetness should be saved for desserts. I want savory for savory. Even the cucumber sandwich was sweet. Yuck! Very overpriced!! Why are you adding in tip for a party of 3? Tea was not replenished with hot water. You need solid managers walking around and ensuring things run smoothly. Very unorganized considering they’ve been around for about 5 years. This place has amazing potential. Get some decent management.

Both times the experience was so lovely. This is a family owned restaurant that serves a traditional high teas with clotted cream, small scones, and small portion savories and desserts. It was so peaceful, and the owner, Ginny, went out of her way both times to deliver excellent service to us. It is located in a historically important old bldg in Pasadena, and the rooms are lovely. I will return here again and again for special high teas. They also have a beer garden in their beautiful patio, and serve lunch and dinners in addition to the high teas.

They may be known for their High Tea but we went for dinner and had a scrumptious meal, in a beautiful decor, with wonderfully attentive service. I had the Lobster Risotto which was delicious and buttery. Husband had the Scallop which were also delicious. We ate early and there was hardly anyone there! Considering how good the food was and how excellent the service, we were very surprised by how empty it was. The kitchen was a little slow but we were well-rewarded with a fine meal. Apparently they offer High Tea in the evenings too and we will definitely return.

When the tea pot finally arrived he did not bring the cups for another 10 mins. When the bill arrived the tip was already added. Nevertheless the slip for the signature had the tip item empty for those who did not look at the bill carefully. We will not be returning.

The building and decor is absolutely gorgeous. The harpist was wonderful. It was a fixed menu that night. A few choices. I had the $66 “saffron fish” with soup, a shared appetizer and a shared tiny bit of dessert. I asked the waitress what kind of fish was in the “saffron fish” meal thinking saffron was the seasoning. She replied it was saffron fish. ? What? I asked if it was a white fish. She said yes. She had no other info on the fish. Fresh? Frozen? Type of fish? Ocean? Fresh water? So strange. The food was also cold. It was a wonderful night because of the company and the beautiful room.

People were nice, savories were just ok but the tea, beautiful ambiance and pastries made up for it. We had dietary restrictions and the server struggled a bit but he was endearing and the staff supported him well. I’ll definitely be back!

I love the fact that the ceiling is high so the noise level will never be a problem. This place has many dining rooms and each one is decorated differently. The pictures in the website does not do this place justice. It is much nicer.
