Treasured memories are made at Seattle"s Queen Mary Tea Room, where exquisite teas, delicious meals, and mouthwatering desserts are savored. Once inside, guests are intimately surrounded by Victorian elegance. The ambiance is accented with English bone china, delicate lace, and rich wainscoting. There are generous helpings of authentic British cuisine, the solace of good friends, the warmth of beautiful full leaf teas from around the world, and shelter from that occasional Seattle rain shower. Queen Mary Tea is the destination for so many occasions; birthdays, baby showers, or just a place to take someone for something special.

What a very fun experience! I was impressed by the great variety of teatime treats on the afternoon tea tower, the special touches like the shape of a bunny on the pot pie, the nice decorations and the excellent service, including free tea samples. Delightful experience. The most amazing tea. Very fun.

We had a very lovely lunch/tea however our server was new and therefore not super helpful in tea selection knowledge. She was very sweet but definitely needs more training. As for the food it was really good as always although slightly expensive but you pay for the experience and it was a special treat.

Wonderful place, delicious food, friendly staff and English tea room decor and ambiance. The only sort of downside is that while the space is a fine size, it's always packed (for good reason). But the noise level is not that bad even if every seat is full. Highly recommend.

The manager was our waitperson and made us feel very welcome right away. Very chatty and friendly throughout our visit, not intrusive though. My Veg quiche was very good, but the green salad was lovely.
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch for my birthday. I've recommended the QM before, but hadn't been back for some time. Glad we revisited.

Always a lovely afternoon tea experience. The staff is quick to respond and the food is delightful. The only thing is that it is a very small space and it can be quite loud. Not the most relaxing experience but a very fun social experience!

The place is very cozy. There was a big party going on when we arrived so it took 20 mins before our waitress even came to our table. Wonderful tea selection, but the food was just okay

We were celebrating a birthday and she love her tea house experiences. The restaurants seemed smaller than expected from the photos online so it is cozy but quaint. The owner even came to make sure all was going well. Service was excellent, food was good. 3 of us had tea service, 2 upgraded to include champagne and 1 ordered a lunch item, just under $200 before tip. You definitely go to a place like this for the ambiance and charm and great attentive service. Street parking only and fortunately we found a spot just a couple blocks away so if you have someone that needs assistance, best to drop them out front and park.

Birthday for my 23 year old niece. It was fabulous as always, but it’s been a few years and I was surprised how much the price has gone up. I’m retired on a fixed income now so it is hard.

I’ve been going to Queen Mary’s for over 20 years. I was so excited to share this gem with the ladies I work with as a gift. One of my coworkers had never been to QM’s unfortunately the service was terrible. They take your credit card as part of your reservation, in case you don’t show? I brought 4 ladies to tea and myself. I changed our reservation over the phone the day before. I tried to modify it via Ooen Table too. When we arrived the table wasn’t ready. When we finally sat down not enough waters. I had to go to the station where they were all behind the counter to tell them. No one checked on us for a long long long time. I finally went up to the counter about the water. Then they didn’t bring the correct number of scones, I had to get up after telling the server we were missing one, they forgot a crime brûlée entirely even though she asked us when we wanted it brought. Very inattentive. There were only 5 tables booked in the entire place. Not at all full. Which is funny to me as the person over the phone told me she would have to check and see if I could add two ladies. She was just not sure if she could squeeze us in. It was not a full house by any means. I’ve been to Qm’s When every table was booked. It was not their best day. Lots of girls to serve too. I felt bad that I had told my coworkers it was so wonderful:( We drove 45 mins to come. We’ve also had tea at the tea house in Sumner. Bigger venue and better service! The staff are always kind.

We arrived early for our reservation and were welcomed in although we had offered to wait for our designated time. The area was maybe 3/4 full. We took our time to order. Once our order was placed which included a “champagne” drink it took an appropriate amount of time to get our tea and soon followed by the food but no sign of our drinks. When we inquired of the drinks we were advised they were coming. The tea room and tables are quite small which I knew and I’m fine with but repeatedly we had to ask staff to remove empty dishes. It would seem with the tight spaces this would be a priority every time staff passes a table - our table was in the main flow so staff repeatedly had to pass by. It was disappointing that for a $50+ lunch the service was not better especially since I was trying to introduce someone to both the Queen Mary and afternoon tea, I don’t think she was impressed.

This place is a definitely unique place to have families or friends to spend a great time and cherish the moment. The rooms were fully decorated with Christmas ornaments and full of the nutcracker toys. The service was great even though the room was packed. I recommend to everyone who wants to enjoy any special occasions.
