Afternoon Tea
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.

This is a lovely place to have lunch, brunch or high tea if you are not in the mood for a lot of dessert, you can have a nice savory lunch and still order a full pot of tea, per person. No one will rush you out. Seasonal decorations are over the top and fun the look at.

If you would like to spend a laid back afternoon tea, Queen Mary is the place. The food is substantial. The only item that was difficult to discern was the chicken salad. It tasted like tuna. The scone, quiches, etc were excellent, as were the other items.

This was m,y second visit and my family and friends enjoyed ourselves.

I took my grandkids for tea and they loved it. One of the teapots had a chip at the spot.
Also previously I had called about another issue twice and though I was promised a return call, it didn’t happen.

Great afternoon tea with many tea options. Traditional tea service, but also features full menu. Cozy atmosphere but not much wiggle room. It would be tough if you had a baby due to lack of room to accommodate car seat, etc. You can
hear just about everyone's conversations but if you are good at filtering, you won't have a problem! Super fun to try and return to.

This place was quaint, and had good service… But it was a little disconcerting to hear some swearwords coming from the kitchen, in such a small family oriented environment. I was disappointed that they did not have clotted cream, which is a must for any high tea restaurant.

I took my wife there for her birthday because she is into this stuff. Well, she loved it! She was so excited to get there and afterwards she said it was even better than what she had hoped for. So it has to be pretty great because really loves and knows this stuff!

We had afternoon tea with all the trimmings and it was yummy. The tea selection is 4 pages long and they do serve a proper pot of tea. The afternoon tea menu is quite amazing. Lots of tasty, sugary fingerfoods along with very English tea sandwiches. We were especially grateful for the Gluten Free menu! The service was excellent and the ambiance was delightful. It's a special, celebratory moment. Enjoy it with your Downton Abbey friends or with a few little girls in princess dresses and tiaras.

the concept is good, the food and presentation is very good, but the place is very, very small and super busy, we got there at our time of reservation and we were ignored for about 15 mins, I understand that it was very busy but at least acknowledge people that is waiting, after we got seated we didn't get any service for at least 10 mins, not even water .
The place is super small that makes you feel that you are eating in a share table, I was able to hear everyone's else conversations
I also think is overpriced,

I've been here before and did have a higher expectation than the experience we had this visit. It was very crammed together & noisy. The food was fine with no real complaints. However, I believe that any of us who are going to pay extra for lemon curd, would want it to be lemony & tart. This was a nice curd but far less tart than I'd like & I'd even have to say bland.

I’ve been there twice so far and it’s pretty good. I think the saving grace is the huge selection of teas available plus the service and enthusiasm of the waitstaff. Honestly the food is nothing special, but will fill you up. I was comparing this with tea service in Canada and obviously it’s way better when the Brits do it!

I was so excited to go to the Queen Mary Teahouse! First of all, it was February 7th, and they still had their Christmas decorations up and were also playing Christmas music! Six of the people there for tea, were very disappointed as I was! It really ruined the ambience of the place! We were served soup, but the size of it was about the same amount of a shot glass! We all thought it was very chincy. The Tea was good! It was a little over priced for what you got.

This is a tiny, but charming tea room with outstanding tea goodies! We had the tea tower and everything on it was delicious. My only complaints were that the space is very tight and it was difficult for my elderly mother to sit down and, the bank seat along the wall where we sat was covered in crumbs and even a bread crust. I had to brush it off before I let my mom sit down. Also, we were near the window and it was cold.

Afternoon tea service is wonderful, the sorbet trio with shortbread cookie served first is delightful and refreshing, there was a 1/2 English muffin which could have been whole or just omitted, the remainder of the sweet and savory treats were very good! The staff are so friendly and helpful they make the whole experience so worth it! Definitely will go back again!

The lunch food was a mixed experience. The soup and salad were delicious. The Cornish pastry was cold inside the pastry. I was served a piece of cake that tasted like it had been in the pastry case for a month. The frosting was hard and falling off in pieces Simply inedible. Our server to over 30 minutes to come and clear our plates before asking if we wanted dessert. It was so noisy I had to read my friends lips to know what she was saying.
This used to be a great place to gather with friends. I have no plans to ever return, after today.

Our party of four had the best time for afternoon high tea. My niece encouraged us to wear hats and gloves which was super fun. The atmosphere and food was beautiful and our server was attentive and personable. We all added a Markle Sparkle cocktail-simply delicious. I’ve been to the Fairmont for high tea twice but now prefer Queen Mary’s Tea House.
