The afternoon tea was lovely and quiet relaxing for my husband and I. The tea and food was delicious. Loved the atmosphere as well. We had basically our own private nook. The waitress was extremely friendly and courteous. Cannot wait to come back!

I would recommend tea at the O. Henry for small parties (4 or less people). The seating arrangement was not very good for conversation (we had "sitcom seating"-- everyone on the same side of the table, for the most part-- which made it difficult to hear others in our party of 5). And although I enjoyed the individualized "nooks" created by the various clusters of seating throughout (which offered privacy) the overall rumble of conversations in the room did get rather loud. The service, though, was wonderful. Our server had a lovely personality and made great suggestions. And overall, it was a unique and relaxing way to celebrate a friend's birthday.

O Henry hotel was simply stunning, it reminded me how much I enjoy the customs of the south. Everything was more formal, the details were on point and I was very impressed with the staff! They were super friendly and knowledgeable! And the food was divine! I simply liked everything I tasted, which is pretty rare! Many thanks for an incredible experience, I will never forget!

A fun, low-key birthday event for my wife and me. Many different ages there enjoying it. Wait staff was great. Cannot wait to go back to O. Henry's restaurant (Green Valley Grill?) and/or to attend Jazz performance on Thursdays (I think it's TH)in the hotel lobby.

Afternoon tea at the O’Henry is the perfect experience to share with a group of girlfriends or a mother-daughter outing. The tea service is elegant while maintaining a causal atmosphere. The food and tea were delicious. Servers are attentive and ensure that guests are well cared for. Service can get slow at times, but only because they remain so busy. Easily one of the best dining experiences in the Greensboro area.

We had a great time. The food was yummy and the hotel environment was something out of a fairy tail. The hotel was decorated so festive and the staff was very helpful. The only drawback was not being seated at a real table, but having tea in a parlor room.

A bit disappointing due to the service. We added a note to the res that there was a vegetarian with us and the hostness seemed to know this when we checked in. I reminded the waitress, too, but she brought out regular teas for everyone. I asked if something was chicken salad on the plate and she said yes and then grabbed it with her bare hands to whisk it away. I thought this was a little gross and really she should have just left it. She then brought a replacement fairly quickly which was good. I'm also pretty sure I got the wrong tea (Earl Grey instead of English Breakfast). When we went to pay, we told the waitress whose card was whose since one of us only got a pot of tea and the rest got light teas. She charged the wrong card for the lesser amount. None of these things is a big deal - but given the setting, not as enjoyable an experience as it should have been. I have found the waitstaff always friendly but often either hard to track down or easily befuddled even though it seems like a pretty straightforward place to wait table given the small number of options.

The experience is worthwhile. We planned the event, but for a small group, it would be fun to pop in and take a break from shopping. The child's tea menu offering was particularly good, which makes it a much more child-friendly experience.

An elegant setting surrounds you. The amount of food is a bit small except for the full pot of tea. We still had half a pot left after filling our cups three to five times. The scones were delicious but small. All the food was tasty but don’t think it will satisfy you if you skipped lunch. A pleasant repast in an afternoon.
