Afternoon Tea

The Chesterfield Palm Beach’s high quality traditional Afternoon Tea is highly regarded. We observe the noble tradition in the way it demands. Were Lord Chesterfield still with us, he would heartily approve of our exceptional Afternoon Tea. Served between 12pm and 4pm, by reservation only, you may choose to take your tea in the homey setting of our classically wood paneled library, in the extravagant Leopard Lounge Bar or in the open air of our sun dappled Courtyard for an English summertime experience.

    We’re expecting a high level tea service since the place is famous however there was nothing to wow us. The food quality & quantity was good, the service was good as well but the hostess & the waiters were talking loud all the time breaking the atmosphere. The price was too high for the overall experience.

    We went to celebrate my British grandmother’s birthday. We couldn’t think of a better to celebrate than having high tea at the Chesterfield to bring my grandmother back to her roots. She absolutely loved it! The service was phenomenal the tea and food was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend it.

    I’ve had Tea Service several times in various hotels in UK and Ireland with satisfaction. Tea at Chesterfield’s was scant on savory items and heavy with excessively sweet items. The experience was a waste of time and money.

    This was a very authentic British Afternoon Tea. The scones were fresh and warm and precisely the British version, not the American variation that you find at most American shops, restaurants . and bakeries. The clotted cream was also authentic, although whipped unlike the British version; it was not the weak American substitute, (sweet) whipped cream). The finger sandwiches were quite good, the pastries excellent. The server, Maria, was very courteous, pleasant, and savvy. The interior is elegant.

    I love tea at the Chesterfield. I often bring my out of town guests. Unfortunately, this visit was disappointing. Our waiter was noticeably non-attentive. We ordered tea with champagne which was to include refills of champagne yet the waited never refilled our glasses. The $20 up charge for champagne amounted to one glass.

    The tea service is very nice at the Chesterfield. Tralanda was an excellent service and knew what to do and how to handle the tea service. Pastries could have been more divers, all the same kind, sandwiches were fresh and tasty, but with large pieces of bread. Clotted cream was just whipped cream for the scones...that was disappointing. Most disappointing was that the valet attendant left a nicotine tobacco odor in our car, he must smoke a lot, very unprofessional...too bad.

    Love the scones! But was that really clotted cream served with it? Sandwiches good. Bread was very soft and fresh. Desserts were good. Biscotti delicious. Lemon pie good too. But nothing chocolate! That was a bit disappointing. Couldn’t finish desserts. Took them home.

    The meal was excellent, however it was odd that the entire location was virtually empty but they put us right next to a table almost on top of another couple. They left and then they filled the table. Odd considering there were many other tables.

    I had booked to center with a friend that was visiting. When I got the confirmation call, I double checked that we would be seated in the library. When we arrived , we were in the main dining and when I asked about library I was told that it was being used for an all day event. I would have change my day if I was aware but since it was confirmed?? Food was ok. Sandwiches nothing special, sweets from any bakery and no scone till right at the end. Wondering if those that set up tea have had a proper tea anywhere.

    While travelling for business I decided to treat myself to a tea luncheon. My server was a lovely gal named Dahlia. She was very nice and chatty in a good way since I was dining alone. The tea sandwiches were so yum and the tea was steaming hot and tasted great. I loved the desserts and the seating in the courtyard with the trickling fountain. Loved it and I highly recommend!

    I’ve been taking my daughter and mother to tea at different places in south Florida for many years now. This was our first time at the Chesterfield. The food was very good and fresh and more than we could eat. They were able to accommodate a last minute addition of another gluten free guest whose flight was cancelled and was therefore staying an extra day. I really appreciate the gluten free options which were fresh, and delicious.

    I wanted to do something different to celebrate my mother’s birthday this year. We had a mix of ages who attended and everyone loved it. My 7 year old was treated like a princess. Everything from the champagne to the tea and sandwiches was perfect. The staff was kind, helpful and accommodating. I think this will be a tradition for us. We plan on going back to celebrate another birthday soon. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth it.

    The atmosphere is very elegant as well as relaxing. The high tea is done properly which is most important to us. The food was delicious. The service was lacking, three different waiters were coming and going and not attentive. No one came over to our table for 20 minutes after we arrived. They took our order and We were told they were baking scones and it would be a wait of 20 minutes-45 minutes later we were asking when they would be ready. We had a reservation so they should have been prepared..

    We were disappointed the Chesterfield was not decorated for Christmas so we did not get a picture in front of the tree. I would not have expected that the first weekend in December and will not be making this reservation this early next year.

    Ordered a bottle of champagne and it was noted as $135 on the menu. The bottle arrived to the table and tasted as if it was on the verge of turning. The bill came and we were charged $315 for the bottle. The waitress should have made us aware of this before opening the bottle.

    It wasn’t bat but it did disappoint. It is extremely expensive for what you get and the food/desserts are not that great. The mango tea was very good and the server María was very kind. Overall it was an OK experience, I wouldn’t come back or recommend it to anyone.
