You are paying for the experience and ambience during 3 course tea. Picturesque view of resort and east valley through floor to high ceiling windows. Comfortable, casual chairs and sofas that promote close conversation. Attentive staff. Live and masterful piano playing the entire time. Will do it again.

Taste was not bad. White berry tea didn’t have berry flavor at all. Somehow it had nutty flavor.😞

The best hi tea in Az. Good food, wonderful attentive service, lovely part of the hotel away from foot traffic. Tables Spaced nicely apart. Mask required inside hotel proper—felt right.
Great for a special occasion or just as a nice treat for yourself. Free valet parking always nice.

The 22% “tea service charge” is excessive...what even is that anyway?! It’s not the tip. I had much higher expectations for the ambiance. The “tea area” is part of an open-concept lobby area, right next to the bar. The noise level is higher than I expected. The food was good, service was great, the pianist was lovely; but overall, the experience was a let down.

Spectacular. Is a proper British, tea time experience. The food taste lovely, good selections of teas. I highly recommend wear a fascinator, appropriately with the occasion. Make your reservation a head in time because is tricky to find a spot. We had a pianist and made the ambiance just divine, fresh roses on the tables. The afternoon was lovely and a moment to remember.

A fun celebration of our friends birthday. Free flowing champagne, delicious sandwiches, scones and dessert and a nice variety of teas. Oscar kept us filled with champagne and water and Wanda kept us fed. One glitch is they profile from previous attendance so they mixed up that with girls we wanted to be near the bar and piano. Luckily there was a four top near the piano tho it was in the back room, which was not what they promised when they reconfirmed on the phone. Big difference when my husband takes me or I go and party with the girls. It all worked out perfectly!

Service was horrible. Server was rude. I didn’t even order Sparkling wine yet I was charged for it. Gratuity was automatically added to my bill. After the service I received I had no intention to pay the tip but didn’t have a choice. I will never go there again. It was my first time at The Phoenician and last.

Great experience. Service and food were awesome! Loved the pianist, but since the tea takes place in the lobby, there does tend to be a bit of noise from folks moving through the area.

The classic tea service was wonderful. The wait staff was attentive, the pianist played to match the ambiance of a breezy afternoon, and the sandwiches and scones were divine. I understand that tea services are expensive no matter where you go but it still makes me sad sometimes how expensive.
