Staff was fantastic. Nice setting and ambiance. Food was disappointing at best. Cheese appetizer was poorly done. The pear spread wasn’t even completely cooked as it was mainly pears in a granular brown sugar mess. The pasta itself was well prepared as far as texture but the mushroom sauce was pretty much tasteless brown water. Disappointing is the nicest way to describe this dining experience. Reminded me why I usually don’t dine in hotel restaurants

My husband & I visited this restaurant for an early Valentine's afternoon tea. The service was wonderful as well as the whole tea experience.

Had another lovely afternoon tea experience at the Liberte Lounge! Service was excellent--the staff was attentive and good humored. The tea service was delicious. I wish they'd described the tea sandwich options in case we wanted to make any substitutions. I also wish there had been a slightly wider variety of teas. There were only a few choices that were decaffeinated. The scones were delicious, as well as the macaroons!

reserved through open table for afternoon tea at 2:30. Changed the reservation to 5 successfully through open table. Got there at 4:55. Was told that tea hour ends at 5 and they could not seat us. There was no remediation . Horribly poor service.

I purchased a discounted Afternoon Tea from Travel Zoo for me, my sister, my mom and my son's girlfriend. We had so much fun and the food was delicious. This is something we would definitely do again. The only thing we noticed is that the tea is not served in authentic tea cups :-(

Went for afternoon tea with a coupon. Overall a surprising good tea and we left full and satisfied. A nice variety of scones, small sandwiches, and dessert. Tea was an excellent quality and we had a champagne, mimosa, or Bellini toast. We went at 1pm on a Sunday and were the first people to arrive so it was really quiet, but I think the kitchen was surprised by our reservation as we were told the reservations usually start at 2pm. Still they readied for us with all haste and we had a lovely afternoon,

Lots of highs, and a few slight annoyances:

Staff (Great job) - super friendly staff, remembered my name from the reservation throughout lunch, gave me utensils when I took the dessert to go. everyone was super friendly. Minor thing - waited about 1 minute, maybe 2, to be seated as there was no one at the podium when I came in.

Food (Very good) - All the food looked amazing.
App: the tuna was very buttery in texture (and I wish I could have slurped up the sauce/broth it was immersed in). Slightly under-seasoned for me, but still very good.
Entree: the duck confit was good, some parts were super tender, other parts of the duck leg harder to chew. The arugula salad with the crispy duck skin instead of croutons was AMAZING!
Dessert: still in my fridge, looked amazing.

Price - it was restaurant week... I love restaurant week!
Thanks for the quiet delicious lunch!

When we walked in there was no hostess to greet us. After a while longer a waitress came to advise us that the hostess will be with us shortly. He did not appear until about another 10 minutes. We were then seated and waited another 20 minutes for the waitress to ask us if we wanted any drinks. We decided to order our meals, because we did not want to have our drinks and not order in another half an hour. Our meals arrived cold! I ate it because I did not want to wait another second. The waitress barely checked on us. My husband had to take the silverware from another table, because the waitress forgot to give us eating utensils for our desserts, which when we finally tasted it was pretty good. The meal was cold so that was not good.

This place was amazing. Probably hands down the best duck confit I’ve ever had. Would definitely come back here again.
Pleasant staff and most importantly succulent food with great sides pairings.

Fully satisfied 👌🏻

The food and place was great but the service was very slow. We were there for two hours. The first course came out pretty cool but the second and third course too a very long time.
