    My mother and I walked in to Brooklyn High low and once again the ambiance blows you away yet at first glance our table was not set up. First off the service has changed, to point that we had to wait five minutes for a spoon, and almost ten minutes for sugar and to top it all off, they never asked about any allergies. Seems as though your understaffed.

    Delightful afternoon. Wished more choices in sandwiches - no one wanted the egg salad in our party. Enjoyed the experience nevertheless.

    The ambiance indoors is lovely but the food is not good quality. Coming from London, I was expecting a high tea experience with traditional English tea sandwiches. The ratio of filling to bread in the sandwiches is super off putting, basically you eat more bread than anything else. I should say, however, the scones made me happy and the chocolate mouse was okay. Another note to make is I think they prepare the sandwiches a day ahead because the bread was dry. Especially with gluten free bread, it needs to be done on the day. I assume regular customers would have a better experience in that regard. They were nice to substitute the sandwiches with a soup for my friend who does not like cream cheese. Overall, it is not a true British experience but probably good enough for Americans.

    Exceeded our expectations in every aspect of the experience: exquisite teas and excellent sandwiches, soup, and desserts. We adored the quirky environment and found the service from Jordan and the young woman (we did not catch her name) outstanding! It was a fluke that we found the location, but thanks to Open Table we found you! We visited the Paul McCartney exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, but had high tea in honor of British culture and The Beatles. It made a for a perfect day! Thank you so much! The ladies of Indiana :)

    We did the Vanderbilt tea. The tea was great and so was the food. The decor and ambiance are awesome! The only bummer is the 75 min time limit. I understand having a time limit but that felt short given the cost.

    My mom and I had tea at Brooklyn High Low as a Mothers Day weekend treat and it was lovely! The staff was very knowledgeable and kind, the tea was delicious (we’ve been to many teas and this was some of the best tea I’ve ever had - very unique blends and varieties) and the food was lovely and abundant. My favorite part was definitely the tea and the space itself - it’s really gorgeous and whimsical. All in all a truly delicious and wonderful experience!
