The setting is well done and food is really good. Only issue: the team is clearly understaffed and service suffers from it despite the best effort of the staff...It was very slow to get the food out of the kitchen and table services was way too light for a restaurant of this standing.

We attended Williamsburg Hotel for high tea as a group of 8. The manager was very hands on assisting in the slight issues that came up. The service of the bartender and waiter was very customer service oriented more so given that it is located in a hotel and they mainly serve hotel guests. Ideally would have liked more of a balance of savory to sweet items but everything was delicious. The teas were miraculous and can’t wait to look up where they’re from. I am definitely coming back on more friend dates.

Our reservation was for 5:00; we were planning to have High Tea (which ended at 6:00). We got there and were told high tea was over. We waited 30 minutes for the drinks we ordered to arrive at our table, and were finally allowed to order food at 6:00. While the food and drinks were delicious, the wait was very long for anything to arrive at our table.

Great atmosphere, awesome service and amazing food and tea. Jenti was great and so attentive. I will be going again and next time sooner cause I missed the live jazz music that being playing in the lounge area. Most definitely recommend the Harvey to my friends.

Went with a friend for high tea I had a travel zoo which was a great value. The tea pots & cups are really cute & colorful. They had live jazz music playing which is a bonus. Service was okay I asked for milk & honey for my tea & server said be right back but never brought.

The room is nice, the tea is good in charming pots and cups. The food served with the tea was to heavily skewed to sweet for us. We would have enjoyed more canapes/tea sandwiches and 1 tier of sweets. But that’s our taste. If you have a sweet tooth it’s perfect. It’s a good weekend afternoon date.

Our high tea was well presented and food was good quality. Everything tasted fresh and delicious, sandwiches and pastries are small but add to a good amount so go with an appetite. If you are not hungry, all those options also come a la carte. Tea is served in colorful individual teapots, very charming!

Took our daughter here for high tea for her 6th birthday. A bit too hip for a little kid, so that’s on us. But the service was professional, sweet and genuine and the food was yummy. Compared to other high tea places in the city, the price was good for the quality and amount of food they serve. We were there around 5pm and they let us order from the bar menu too, which was a very tasty. The high tea is about 80% sweet to 20% savory, so we were glad to have bar menu items (chicken croquettes, antipasti and fries were esp yummy) to choose from, as well. Our server was new and so cute and nice that I found her afterward to thank her. They also put a candle in a cake and sang happy bday to our kid, when I bet that’s not the norm there! The space is beautiful. On this particular Friday night, 5pm was quiet (though many more were in the bar area) so it did feel a little empty. We didn’t mind though and they let us spread out. I don’t go into Williamsburg often (this place is not super accessible by train) and I sometimes assume there will be attitude. Not here! Probably one benefit of being in a hotel where they are used to all kinds of people and families.

The ambience was great-- I went around 3pm and there was a wonderful jazz quartet playing that really complemented the afternoon tea vibe. The tea options were also great. The finger sandwiches and sweets were ok, and I don't know if I would pay the original price for it, but with the TravelZoo voucher, it was worth the value.

Went to Williamsburg Hotel for high tea. The tea and food were first rate, the service was terrible. I thought our server might be on something, my partner thought she was just distracted. Regardless of the poor service, I would return to this restaurant for a Sunday brunch, the food was that good.

We had made reservations for a Friday afternoon tea. When we arrived the host did not have a table reserved for us and told us to sit anywhere. We ordered the afternoon tea lunch for two $60.00. The 3 tiered tray consisted of 3 quarter portions of cold chewy bread one topped with dry tough lox, the others with average tasting spreads. The desserts were even less signature and average. The pear tea had no taste, aroma or color. In my opinion, even if this lunch cost $15.00, I still would have been disappointed. I strongly would not recommend.

The high tea was great, everything was tasty. However we did feel that the ratio of sweets to savory was too heavy on the sweets. Too many sweets that we just couldn't finished, but would have loved some more savory bites. The pear/cheese sandwiches were DELISH!
