    Staff and environment are great. Food selection has room for improvement. There's 24% service charge included in the bill.

    The food was great but felt the $50 per person and 24% gratuity added automatically was too expensive for tea and finger foods. Do not plan on going again.

    Overall, the Afternoon tea was lovely. However, I found it inappropriate that a political agenda was included in the presentation of our food. We were told that the opera cakes were to celebrate Pride Month. It was an expensive experience that was "almost" perfect except for Ballantyne's need/desire to celebrate an agenda that is not part of my life.

    It was everything “high tea” should be. It was elegant and fun all at the same time. The food, service and presentation were all fantastic! I can’t wait to do it again! 🥰❤️

    Service was excellent and staff made sure we took pictures. Tea was delicious however the food was disappointing. The Ballantyne is a beautiful hotel but charging almost $50 pp plus 23% service fee is overpriced for what it was

    This is the second time I have attended the Tea at Ballantyne with my daughters and friends. Everything was excellent and better than I remembered it. The staff were professional and friendly. The food and beverage were exceptionally tasty, and the ambience was perfect. Great experience again!

    Wonderful Bridgerton Tea Experience! We loved the theme, decor, and attire. The waiters were dressed in Regency attire and all the guests wore Regal and Regency themed outfits. I would highly recommend going for a themed afternoon tea event.
