Great service! And the food was all delicious. It was a very special time for my daughter, two young granddaughters, and me. Everything we hoped for in our Easter time afternoon tea.

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.

By far, my favorite afternoon tea in the valley. If you have never been, give it a try.

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.

Easily some of the best tea I’ve ever had, along with some really food courses. Servers were very attentive and friendly, atmosphere is nice (never mind how beautiful this resort is in general), really everything is super nice and welcoming here. No doubt will try to revisit in the future.

The service, tea and view were amazing! The food is good; it is just a lot of bread/carbs. Bring your appetite, they serve a lot!

This must be one of the best afternoon tea experiences in the United States.
From the sandwiches, through the scones and then deserts, all very delectable with generous servings. Staff was very kind, attentive and welcoming.
Definitely a must do for Afternoon Tea lovers.

We went to afternoon tea for my birthday. Wonderful experience yet we felt we waited a bit longer than other tables for our dessert course. The pianist was a nice touch

I have been taking my daughter to afternoon tea at the Phoenician once a year for the past 16 years and it is always an absolute delight and such a special time. A special thank you to Wanda and Natalie who have been there for as long as we can both remember. Their hostessing is second to none. I would highly recommend going whenever you are able to do so or or visiting from out-of-town.

Perfect for a celebration, my sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our tea experience at The Phoenician. The food and tea were delectable and I really appreciated the delicious gluten-free options. The pianist was excellent, playing some of my favorite movie scores. We had a gorgeous view out of a panel of glass windows. The only thing that would have been helpful is that we didn't know where to park and ended up walking longer than necessary, but it was such a lovely day, we hardly noticed. I would definitely recommend the experience (and make sure to come hungry!).
