Queen Mary Tea Room
Lunch: Wednesday-Friday: 11:00 am-4:00 pm, Saturday-Sunday: 11:00 am-4:30 pm
Fun time, quality of food doesn’t match the price.
I have been coming to the QM Tea Room for many years and chose to come here to celebrate a milestone birthday with my husband. The food was excellent as usual! I noticed however that our waitress seemed very rushed and we had to wait longer than usual to place our order. Since she forgot to ask if this was a special occasion, which it was, I told her it was my birthday and asked if I could wear one of their birthday tiaras. They were low on them she explained, as customers tend to walk off with them, so I was a little sad I that didn't get to wear one. *Sniffle* My experience this time was not quite as top notch as on other visits, but I still had a wonderful time and plan to return!
Service was great! Tea selection was outstanding. Food was ok. It was a bit challenging to have a conversation due to the noise, proximity of other tables, kids, and the number of people in such a small space.
We fell in love! The atmosphere is cozy Victorian/posh English with a dash of unicorns etc for the children’s birthdays, and it’s not stifling—it’s as formal as you want it to be. Food was great, though it should be noted that the scones are American style, not like with English cream tea. Tea and the pea soup were incredible. Service was a bit slow possibly due to the fact that it was graduation weekend in the U District but staff were friendly and helpful. The place has marvelous attention to detail that really makes the experience. If you’re a fan of tea/an Anglophile I recommend the emporium down the street as well.
We took our next door neighbors for lunch to thank them for all that they do to help us
We had a wonderful time. They loved the tea (especially the Lemon Chiffon), the food (we all had vegitarian quiche) and the over all ambience and experience. Queen Mary stopped by our table and made us feel so welcome. Our neighbors plan to go back again soon. We have been coming back for years. Perfect place for a thank you.
It’s the perfect place for a special occasion. Think 9 year old daughter’s birthday or fancy lunch with a special relative.
Getting together with family
Every detail about QM’a tea house was perfect! Took my mom and sisters here for Mother’s Day high tea and absolutely enjoyed ourselves!
We always try to take our friends to Queen Mary's for birthdays and other special occasions. We took our small wedding party to Queen Mary's for our wedding brunch. Food is fantastic.
This is a wonderful spot, with a well defined vibe, perfectly prepared tea, and delicious food that will leave you wanting to try something new on your next visit.
Beautiful venue, delicious food and tea, and great service. Took my mom there for Mother's Day and it was perfect! Loved it and will definitely go again.
Love the feel of this place. The food is wonderful, as is the selection of teas and desserts. One complaint is that it is SO loud, it was nearly impossible to hear the person sitting across the table from me. Also, the seating is so tight, you feel like a sardine. If you could remove just one table along the west wall, it would make a world of difference. There were several instances where the server nearly knocked something off our table.
Went here for a birthday breakfast and tea. Food was delicious, the tea was outstanding, and our waitress was wonderful.
My mom took my daughter out for her birthday and had the best time. My daughter thought it was completely magical!
My friend’s Greek mother-in-law is in town from Athens. I wanted to share with her the Queen Mary experience. We had the Royal Afternoon Tea, and it was a great dining experience!
My friend and I had a lovely time. I was so happy to find a tea room that accommodated my gluten free needs! And it didn't feel like second rate food. I'll be going back.
Wonderful setting and service. Afternoon tea is better at other places around Seattle but still very lovely.
We went for my daughter's 12th birthday. The service was excellent, the food hot and delicious. We will definitely be back. I recommend making reservations at least 2 weeks out because the dinning area is small and cannot accommodate a ton of people. But that is also why it is such a wonderful place.
Great Tea & service. High tea now has soup. Able to accommodate food allergies just ask. Reservations strongly recommended as walking in can't always be seated.
Expensive. Appeals to young girls, and is a cute place to go on a date. The tea is great, we had Darjeeling and Highland. We also ordered Afternoon Tea, which is three small scoops of sorbet and a food platter with savory and sweet pastries and sandwiches. The sandwiches were tasty, but light and left me wanting more. I did not like the pastries. I'm used to Slav tea culture, where the tea is strong and the pastries are rich and sweet, with vibrant flavors of nuts, preserves, and cream. Most other people do seem to really enjoy the Afternoon Tea, but if you are a Slav, it is easy to feel nostalgic for your family. Anyways, the tea was great, and the cheesecakes looked promising for a return visit.
The service was absolutely stellar. I could not be guaranteed a window seat but the calendaring person bent over backwards to make it happen as it was a special occasion. This woman was very cheerful & kind & even got us an extra half pot of the tea they were featuring that day. What a lovely person! Thanks, Queen Mary, for make the whole experience special!
Exceptional food and careful, attentive service. A fun cozy spot for 1-4 people at a table. Larger groups tend to overpower the space and make it not as nice for the rest of the diners, but I understand the appeal of having an "event" there.
When we arrived, the reservation had been changed to 4:30 somehow - the staff still sat us at 3:30 with no issues, were gracious and pleasant, and the food was amazing. I love this place!
Queen Mary Tea Room is a small, quaint, bustling place where English charm abounds! My girlfriends & I went there just for a girlie day & reminders of days of living in Britain.
The decor is beautiful, the staff were attentive, and the afternoon tea was amazing!
The only negativity that I can find to say is, I believe it’s time to expand! While small & quaint, our table was in a corner that was very tight getting in too. It was sure intimate amongst us girls, but it was rather very difficult to get in or out of our small space. Because if this it felt a tidge cramped but the overall experience was lovely!
Afternoon tea does not come in dairy free options so if you are have dairy issues, best try something else on the menu. Although, because I want to experience the afternoon tea, I went for it and it was TOTALLY worth it! The food was amazing, tasty, beautiful, fresh, and above all else delicious!
Our waiter, Mitchell was friendly & knew his job from helping us with decisions, to moving all our things on our table to fit everything coming out like a pro!
We also were a little early, and were directed to the other tea shop connected to the tea room down the street while we waited for our table. It’s a cute shop with many different teas, tea cups, and pretties. I’d love to of seen more shop items to purchase like journals, tea cozies, or other trinkets outside of tea and cups and saucers. The shop person was lovely and knowledgeable.
Our entire experience was lovely and worth going too any girlie outing!
Always a wonderful time.
Delightful Sunday Birthday Brunch. Our server was perfect— warm, friendly and came up with just the perfect suggestions for us to try.
Amazingly fun girls’ day out! We cannot wait to visit again!
This is one of my favorite tea houses for the atmosphere alone, m but the food is hit or miss.
The food was wonderful but the dining room was chilly throughout afternoon tea.
We love going to the Queen Mary. The food is lovely, and we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday. The server forgot about us for a while before bringing water or taking our orders. That’s very unusual for the staff who are very kind, prompt, and attentive. We also heard a loud argument about seating and pending orders between staff struggling to handle parties who arrived early. That was also unusual for a very thoughtful team of people working together in a small space. We are chalking this up to a busy, stressful day, and will be back another time.
This place was superb. If you want to experience classic High Tea, this is the place to go. It has a rustic charm that makes you feel welcome, and the unique tea sets that they use to serve are beautiful. The food is wonderful, you pay for the quality. Our server was super friendly and answered all our questions. I highly recommend going here, just makes sure to make a reservation as they are almost always booked up tight.
We liked the tea room , the tea tasted great, the sample of teas was great. The over all price of the sample foods for 3 was way to high. There was not enough for the price.
It was lots of fun, the food taste great . The teas we enjoyed lots. The place was Beautiful. It was lovely and a welcoming place. The size was a little crowded. Not enough room between tables. I would not be able to come here on my own but my son saved to give us a good experience. I am surprised by the price of food for such a small sample. Thanks for having the place for us.
I love this place. Every time I come here it’s a fantastic experience. Whether you come for a special occasion or just brunch this place should be in your list for sure. The service is outstanding and the food is always on point. You can’t go wrong with a multiple page tea menu. I can’t say enough great things about. This fabulous place!!
Love this place but the seating is just too tight. They are squeezing so many tables into such a small space that it makes the seating very uncomfortable.
This place provides great food but OVER priced for Afternoon Tea
Queen Mary had great atmosphere and even better service. The afternoon tea was the highlight of our get together where you get basically a whole meal on a three tiered platter and your choice of a tea. The experience made it a place you'll want to go to as well as the expertise in tea and friendly servers.
My friends and I had a wonderful time having afternoon tea. The service was fantastic, Susie was super helpful at explaining the menu and making sure things went smoothly. The entire experience was magical. I will definitely be back!
The decor was nice, although I found the place to be quite crowded and noisy, so it's difficult to have a conversation and you feel like you are on top of the table next to you. The service was spotty, we waited for tea while other tables seated after us were served first, got minimal interaction during our tea, and also waited and waited for the check. It didn't seem like they were understaffed. The food was good, but for the price, there was very little. So overall, I was disappointed.
Lovely holiday tea at The Queen Mary. Charming and delightful room, tea, treats and service. What I love is the intimacy of the Tea Room and everyone is happy to be there. Highly recommend for special occasions but honestly any occasion becomes special at The Queen Mary!
I took my daughter here for a special occaison. The service was excellent and every crumb of food was perfect. Too expensive to make it a weekly thing but great for a quiet celebration. This place is a gem.
