I love this place! Our server Paul is really impressive! He made us, three ladies a wonderful afternoon! It snowed heavily on Sunday but we made it to our appointment and we are very happy we made this choice.
I've been to tea here before a few years ago and they must have changed the portion size. I understand high tea has small canapés, but these were tiny! Only enough for one bite. I could have looked past the portion size if the quality was excellent, but this menu selection was just average. For the price, it should be Michelin quality. We opted to add a glass of champagne for $10 extra. When we asked for a second glass of champagne at the end of our service, I expected the glass to be another $10, but when I got the bill it was an extra $44! Talk about a rip off. We could have purchased the whole bottle.
Afternoon Tea was simply exquisite. That’s the only way to describe it!
Everything was fantastic. Thomas was a thoughtful and very attentive server. The champagne was a great way to start. The sandwiches were all delicious; I would love to have another plate of those if I wasn't so full! I chose the Nutcracker tea and really enjoyed it. The scones are served warm with cream, jam, and chocolate spreads. I could not finish all of the desserts, so Thomas kindly packaged them to go. The last piece was a biscuit with mint chocolate on top; it was my favorite of the sweets. It is pricey, but worth it. There were several other restaurants offering tea service in Chicago, but I'm glad I chose the Pavilion. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!
The Langham had a wonderful selection of teas, savory bites and sweet options. It is an investment at $78 a person, but it was just wonderful from beginning to end.
Wonderful tea atmosphere and the service is great. The hotel is beautiful.
Lovely for a special occasion.
Would request table in main room next time rather than off in corner
The room and hotel were beautiful but the pastries were horrible except for the scones. The pastries were old and hard like they had been sitting out too long. Very disappointing...
My daughter and i had holiday tea. It has become a tradition. Absolutely lovely!
We were running late they were very accommodating. Service was fantastic.
It is a beautiful setting. Loved the holiday decor! The tea presentation and food were wonderful. I felt that our server was not as attentive to us as he was to other customers around us and it wasn't that crowded. I definitely will come again...the food was that good. In fact we had to take home most of our desserts because we were so satisfied.
The Langham's take on traditional English afternoon tea is comparable to the best hotels in London. Innovative sandwiches, beautiful presentation, impeccable service. The only thing I wasn't keen on was the chocolate scone and chocolate spread. Too unorthodox for my taste buds, otherwise everything was delicious. Shame about some of the other patrons who thought bringing babies is somehow a good thing.
Wonderful experience for afternoon tea during the Christmas season. Very leisurely and well spaced out tea. Food was delicious. Service was great. Quite pricey compared to other tea services.
Went for the wonderland tea service. Food and tea were delicious. We loved everything we had and there was so much we even had some leftovers to bring home. Appreciate that a glass of sparkling wine was included and the box of chocolates to take home was a nice surprise.
I love high tea. This was a disappointment. The food was mediocre; only one of the savory items was really good. Pastries were okay. The service was good but definitely wouldn't go again.
Brought a friend here for tea for her birthday. The food, service, and ambiance was awesome. I go to tea relatively often, but almost always at The Drake. I'd say the overall experience here was slightly less extravagant than the one at The Drake (not necessarily in a bad way; just seemed a little more plebeian) but the food was, in my opinion, much better and more unique. Highly highly recommend
We always love coming here for high tea, their selection is always good and the ambiance is great. Something was a little off with our server this time, for some reason she didn’t feel as accommodating than normal, barely came in to check on us. But otherwise everything was ok.
Best high tea in the city! Hands down! The staff was perfectly mannered; the food was divine; the personal touches did not go unnoticed; and everything was absolutely elegant.
Best place for high tea! Beautiful room, delicious food, and superb service.
We attended the afternoon holiday tea. They offered a nice selection of sandwich items and desserts. Their tea selections were broad and interesting. The layout was elegant and inviting.
