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.

The place was very lovely and decorative for the holiday. Heard a lot about this place and want to check out, I was not disappointed. Abit busy bit loving it. A lot of tea choices to pick. The services are great and fast too. The food was good. Great place to catch up with friends.

Unfortunately we had to leave before the food came out, we had an accident with the tea pot tipped over and spilled hot tea all over my grand nephew and myself. We ended up having to box the food to go. Suggestion: maybe provide a high chair for guest who have babies?

Have been coming here for years, and it honestly gets better every time! The warmth and hospitality are second to none, and the tea selection and food are excellent. They’re my favorite high tea place in the PNW. The tea quality is honestly the best I’ve tasted, and everything I’ve ever eaten here is extraordinary.

Amazing service. The only thing is that we had a reservation and they weren’t able to seat us on our time reserved. We had kids with us and they were super hungry by the time they sat us. Not their fault as the guests before us also had children and they took longer than expected. Maybe they can give a notice so they’d know what time their reservation is over.

I was excited to take my daughter & Granddaughter for Christmas tea. I made the reservation on Nov 1 for Dec 1 @ 1:00. We live a two hour drive away, depending on traffic. Several days after making the reservation I get a phone call asking me to change my time to noon because they had a party w/ a baby wanting the 1:00 slot & needed some extra room. I was speechless. I didn’t know what to say so reluctantly said OK. When I checked w/ my daughter she said it would not work for her. So I called back the next day asking for my 1:00 time back. The managers response was,”you’re asking me to call the other party & cancel? No, I had that time slot first and want it back. That experience totally put a damper on my experience. Then I get an email stating that their busy time is noon to 1:30 and they usually try to keep the 1:00 slot free. What? Then why do you offer that time. We came & were seated at the table by the bathroom, crammed next to two other tables. I will say the food was delicious and our service was top notch. A little pricey for tea but my Granddaughter loved it & that’s what mattered.

My husband and I had Afternoon Tea here last Saturday. It was delicious!!! There were sandwiches and sweets and scones and fruit. I would recommend this tea room to anyone!! I am thankful we had reservations for afternoon tea because there was a bit of a line up so I would recommend making reservations. This is definitely worth the trip. We came from thirty miles away!!

I made an online reservation. A few hours later I got a call asking if I could change the time. I could but then the person asking said "Thank you. Now we can seat other People". That felt a bit odd. In my reservation I mentioned it was my daughters birthday and during this phone call the person repeated this. When we arrived we were seated promptly and left to sit. Our order was taken 45 minutes later. A table to my left was seated about 20 minutes after us, ordered 15 minutes after us and got their food 15 minutes before us. The table to my right was seated 20 minutes after us and had their food 10 minutes after us. No one checked in about our food. And everywhere people had candles and birthday wishes offered but not to my daughter.

Went here with two friends for my birthday. It was the perfect spot for us! We had the afternoon tea and every piece was delicious. It was all served on an adorable tiered stand. The restaurant felt decadent while maintaining a cozy and fun environment. And of course the tea was amazing! We will definitely back!

Have been to Queen Mary many times, usually celebrating a birthday with friends. Food and tea selection is always fabulous. This is not the type of restaurant for small children, as there are breakables throughout the restaurant. I will continue to go to the Queen Mary as it is one of my favorite places.

We had a delightful Afternoon Tea for Two. The menu for tea service is imaginative, and the vegetarian accommodation was excellent. All food was tasty, you receive a more than adequate amount of savories and sweets, making it very reasonably priced. Service is gracious and attentive. The atmosphere is charming.

Be sure to check out the Emporium gift shop as well, and take home a bag of one of their many delicious tea blends.
