    Such an amazing experience. This is my 4th time visiting. The food, hot chocolate and ambience are amazing. However, the host/server/manager, Johnny the Troublemaker, always makes the really special He is such an engaging person and a true professional. Mariebelle would not be the same without him!

    Tables are close together and can be loud depending on who’s sitting next to you. However the food and drinks were amazing and the service was very attentive and helpful. Would definitely recommend for an afternoon tea experience!

    Overall, it was a very nice experience for me and my daughter. We appreciated the shot of complimentary Aztec hot chocolate that was served to us. I also asked if we can try the Tahitian Vanilla Bean white hot chocolate and our server was kind enough to oblige us. We ordered the 3 scone platter and the finger sandwich platter. My daughter ordered the 8 oz hot milk chocolate and I ordered the cappuccino. My cappuccino was bland and lacked any espresso flavor. The scones were delicious and they were served warm with clotted cream and two jams. Our favorite finger sandwiches were the smoked salmon and dill cream cheese, endive salad with blue cheese & walnuts and the ham & gruyere. We did not enjoy the beet hummus and butternut squash finger sandwiches because they lacked flavor. I recommend switching these two sandwiches offered on the platter to more interesting and savory ones. Overall, it was a very nice experience and we would definitely return.

    The hot chocolates are delicious as a good point, the pastries were fine but nothing special and unfortunately the service was not great and we had overall a disappointing experience topped off by there being no whipped cream available

    Ambience was good, sandwiches were ok and that’s what’s pulling down the score. The hot chocolate was good. But the service was excellent. It wasn’t the most professional or Michelin 3 star like, but the main server was extremely good and he deserves all the credit.

    Decadent decor and chocolate. Our waiter clearly put lots of effort, patience, and work into making fantastic hot chocolates for us and allowed us to try other hot cocoa samples. Reasonably priced as well!

    It was fine but i think a little overrated for what you are getting in my option. Service was great but there was a large party so the other tables got a bit neglected in lieu of the larger party.

    The place is splendid The Christmas decorations are old world Vienna.The hot chocolate is delicious , The sandwiches are good but some of them were like a red paste on a slice. Than needs to go. It looks and taste like something made up at the last moment to make the setting look full. The waiter is jovial and nice ,,, but rather incongruent with the place. The sales person in the from store where the chocolates are sold, he is gentlemanly and kind and goes really beyond. And can we please have napkins at the begging at the service?. They bring the little delicious soup in dainty cup , then your drink tea or chocolate but the napkins come at the end with the tea tower. Odd. It is though a splendid experience !!! I've been 3 times already this season and the criticism is meant to be constructive>

    This is a favorite spot in Soho and have been a few times. The tea this time was odd - either the chef was phoning it on or they tried too hard to make it "seasonal"? One of the tea sandwiches was just pumpkin puree on a round of white bread with a pumpkin seed in top - it was not good. Another was tomato puree on a round of white bread with a slice of cucumber on top? Not good. Since when are these "tea sandwiches"?? I love an endive salad, the little sandwich had an odd flavor to it, not good. 2 scones - one was traditional and the other was bran or grain or something that did not translate, it was not good. It wasn't the right texture for a scone. The salmon sandwich had a piece of lemon right on top - about gagged was so tart! Salmon was very fishy - Not good. Asked if I could choose the flavor of the macaron with my tea - told no, it is up to the chef. (???) Why can't I choose a flavor I actually like? I left the majority of the food items there on the tray. Bummer. I normally love a seasonal menu or when a place changes things up - was really disappointed this time. *Especially given it is an expensive tea...

    The hot chocolate is rich and served with fresh whip cream. My single afternoon tea was plentiful enough to share with him. The chocolate tea was delicious. The French theme and Christmas decor along and with the large chandelier stated elegance and festive.

    Great food and service; however, they have customers crammed in the space. Our group was shoulder to shoulder with another table. I’d rather they charger higher prices rather than cram customers together because it ruins the specialness of the experience.

Needless to say the hot chocolate here is unmatched! We felt the Christmas spirit through out our meal at Mariebelle and definitely will come back!
