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.

A little on the pricier side but it's definitely worth it every now and then! Large selection of teas, great food, the whole experience was so much fun.

We have been going to QM Tea Room for about 10 years, for Afternoon Tea, and always enjoy our time there.

My sister and I take each other to the Queen Mary for our birthdays every year. It never disappoints. We have been to high tea at the Plaza, the Empress, and at many small establishments. This is our favorite. Love the intimate atmosphere. The tea is Devine.

Cute little place, food was good.....service felt a bit rushed and we never really had a dedicated server so not really personal attention. It's probably just a one time visit for us.

Love this place, it is lovely. I use it for special occasions with friends and family and sometimes go just to cheer myself up. It is always decorated for 'the season' whatever that season happens to be.

A wonderful treat! The food was delicious and so were the teas. I really appreciated the gluten-free food option that made this visit possible for me.I can't wait to visit Seattle again so i can go back to Queen Mary's Tea Room.

Very disappointing visit. The wait staff were completely overworked and had a difficult time keeping the orders straight, even when they took notes. Service was extremely slow, and when our food finally arrived, it was not correct (we had ordered vegetarian and received the meat plates with the afternoon tea). It had taken soooo long to get our food that it didn't seem worth it to ask it to be remade. The wait staff were super kind and comped us food, but overall it was just too busy and chaotic to be a relaxing afternoon tea.

The food is always great. The service was a little slower than usual, but okay. You can't go wrong with an afternoon tea at Queen Mary Tea Room.

Had a ladies tea with a few friends. Love the cozy, kind of zany, decor and ambiance. They clearly love tea here and their selection is amazing. The Afternoon Tea platter is stunning, simple and delicious, we left no pastry uneaten! It was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours - definitely recommend a reservation as it's tiny and always busy!

We had a girls high tea with five family members. We greatly enjoyed the British flare of decor, tea and food service. I absolutely plan to come here again, but next time without kids. Perhaps a child 7 and up but not younger and most definitely not a baby. Which was my mistake. The environment was slightly uncomfortable with the tables so close and the heat. Though I'm sure if it we're just adults and not me stuck between my two children, I'd have had a much more proper time. Loved Afternoon Tea and highly recommend.

This is definitely an enjoyable experience, and something that's a little different from the usual Seattle eatery offering. Prices make it more of a celebratory event destination. Beware at peak times, we had a reservation on Sunday afternoon and service was incredibly slow - our food (chicken salad and quiche, salad & fruit) was delicious but took an hour to arrive, and I had to remind our server three times for the milk to go with my tea. Also worth bearing in mind - their menu is limited for those preferring dairy free. I would go back, but more likely at quieter times. Their tea emporium down the street is great for tea buying and all kinds of treats.

This was a delightful afternoon tea, full of goodies. The sugar cookies, served with the sorbets, were the best we had ever eaten. The sandwiches were good. As always, it may not look like a lot of food on the three tiers, but it is very difficult to finish. The leftovers came home with us to enjoy later. There is an emporium across the street where we bought the sugar cookies and the tea that was served. All and all it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon tea.

We have been here many, many times. The service has always been impeccable. Unfortunately it wasn't that way on our last visit. In the past the service has made our experience so special. Server did not interact just took our order and left. We were given our check without being given the chance to look at the dessert menu. I had to ask her to see it. This tea house is so fun and whimsical. It's a bummer that the server took a little of that feeling away. However, because of past experiences we will be back.

Got stuck in traffic so we were a little late for our reservation, but since we called to let them know, they were prepared to get our tea and food out so we could still have time to enjoy it before the 2 hour limit. Very attentive, polite, and friendly staff, with wonderful food, made an amazing experience. The place is small, and there were more customers than what I'm used to, but it was still quite relaxing and enjoyable for me and my party.

A Gluten Free Paradise! - Took my newly diagnosed celiac friend to Queen Mary's and it was the first time she felt "normal." Transitioning away from gluten is hard, and the GF scones at Queen Mary's are out of this world. Always a delight, and you always see a happy little girl in crinoline bouncing away delighted by the experience.

On this day however, the staff was somewhat new, and our service wasn't on par with the usual treatment. We stood for 20 minutes in the tiny entryway while five tables sat empty and we waited for them to be reset. Arthritis, a bad back and knees, made this wait very painful. I even attempted to request a seat at a not set table to relieve my pain. My request was not understood. Once seated and sipping tea, the rest of the experience was a delight.

The Queen never fails in bringing the best overall Tea Room experience in the Seattle area. The food is always delicious and plentiful, the service is always excellent, the decor is always lovely and season-specific, and the tea itself is superb--always properly brewed in one's own large pot. I know that I will always be served hot, perfect tea that will last as long as I am there enjoying my time of bliss!

Food was very good, lovely table settings and the tea was wonderful. Venue is very small, tables very close to each other and there was very little room for the wait staff to maneuver. We were early for our reservation (a group of 5) and some of us chose to wait outside as the waiting area was extremely tight (good thing it wasn’t raining).

As always, a lovely experience. The only place in town to have a nice tea party. I really appreciated the willingness to sub out the salmon mousse item (I don't like seafood) for an artichoke item. My out-of-town guest - a man - enjoyed it! The only slight negative was it was a bit warm and stuffy due to being crowded.

Wonderful afternoon spent at the tea house. Ginger peach tea is delicious both hot and iced. I bought a tin to take home. The afternoon tea is incredible - from the sorbet with teapot shaped sugar cookie starter to everything on the tiered plate stand - sandwiches, zucchini or banana bread (can’t remember but it’s perfect), scones and treats. My husband ordered the smoked salmon quiche and couldn’t stop talking about it. Will go here again when I’m back in town. Staff /servers/owner all polite and helpful.

The best high tea one can find in Seattle.

Our server was a bit new and needed to be prompted multiple times to bring us things such as milk. And the tables are bit cramped so that those of us sitting near the main aisle were jostled regularly by waitstaff and other patrons passing by

I enjoyed my meal at the Queen Mary Tea Room. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is that the air conditioning was turned up so high that I was uncomfortably cold, even while wearing a sweater. This wasn't a one-off. I dined there twice in August, and both times it was really cold.

I had a wonderful time at the Queen Mary Tea Room! The two hours went by so fast; the food, the tea, the ambience, and, of course, the staff were all wonderful. It is worth the price and I want to go back, either by myself or with friends.
