                    High tea at Bar Pendry was really fun! The music was amazing, the food was great, and I felt like the pricing was fair. Only annoying thing: you have to ask to refill your tea and water, and with the TINY size of those glasses we were often waiting for our server. Wish they had just left a pitcher of water or the tea kettle on the table.

                    As a British ex-pat, who loves her afternoon tea, I was mildly disappointed that they didn't allow the guest to control their own tea. Meaning I had to wait for the server to refill my cup. My guest and I take tea very seriously and I would have steeped mine for a lot longer before drinking. But all that was out of my control. I was also shocked when we asked our server if we could do another round of the egg tart (which was amazing) and the macaroon (which was one of the best I've had) she said sorry we only have enough for each of the tea services. I have yet to have an afternoon tea that did not allow for an extra of something if you enjoyed it.

                    Bar Pendry’s Boozy Holiday Tea was outstanding! The little sandwiches and pastries were not only beautifully presented but also absolutely delicious, and the service was superb. Because we did not order the tea cocktails or punch, which would have added to the price, ours was not actually boozy, but they did look intriguing. Two points of criticism: first, the live music was so loud that it was really hard to conduct a conversation across the low table at which our party of four was seated…right in front of the amp. Might I suggest instead some piped-in Keith Jarrett at a much lower decibel level that would maintain the cool vibe but also save patrons’ ears and facilitate conversation? Second, providing patrons individual tea pots so the tea could be freshly poured and steeped at the table would be an improvement over bringing round as needed a pot that, while acceptable, had a bit of an edge that tea gets once it is no longer perfectly fresh. That said, I give this delicious tea five stars and rate it as good as or better than some far more expensive holiday teas I have had at other venues.

                    To begin, our experience doing tea service here was absolutely 10/10. The little lounge area is gorgeous and the service was incredible. We got a bottle of Prosecco & the finger food that comes with the tea service. I never had to fill up my tea or glass because our server was so attentive. It was clean, comfortable & the perfect experience for a Christmas date or just something different to do in the city. 10/10 again!
