Although I made a reservation way in advance, they did not have my reservation and if I wouldn’t had my reservation number I’m not sure they would have seated us. The teas available were delicious the food was rather tasteless. Lots of creamy centers without flavor. Nothing substantial like mini sandwiches. Over priced for the food selection with mostly sweets that were so so. If you’re going, stick to the tea and maybe the sweet basket. Forget the rest.

The chocolate tea was super. Unlike the Drake, you get a savory and sweet menu of goodies. We made reservations and had a nice reserved table near the window. Nice decor and ambiance. I'd do it again.

From the service to the food to the atmosphere was all just awful. The server spilt everything he brought over including hot water and deserts all over me. The actual tea service is at a hotel lobby...trashy and the food was not that great. No flavor and dry items.

Scones should not be hard, small, cold, and rubbery and clotted cream should not drip. The staff were nice, but didn’t have a clue about how afternoon tea should be served. The tea choices were odd and not served hot and neither cream or sugar or lemons were offered. There wasn’t a single traditional offering on hand and much of what was served was stale. The space was nice, but the furniture was really uncomfortable. The total experience was one of extremely overpriced indifference. My advice? Go elsewhere.

This is not your traditional tea, the Chefs here added a contemporary flair to the service, some were good and some were so so. I really enjoyed the black tea with Canadian Ice Wine.

The food tasted amazing and it was beautiful - so much time and energy put into creating the tea sandwiches and desserts. It was a wonderful location too - floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the waterfront on a gorgeously sunny Chicago spring day!

Sharing the dining/tea room with hotel guest who are in their sleepwear takes away from that experience. The food was ok and the service was ok, but nothing over the top. On the flip side, the tea was very good and same with the spirits.

I went with my wife on a weekday which meant that we were the only Tea Service customers (at our reserved time anyhow). We were given a table by the window with a beautiful view of the Chicago river. The food was excellent. I found it to be a very interesting twist on the traditional Afternoon Tea fair, while it did preserve the customary structure (scones, savories, sweats). One thing was that we felt the tea selection could have been a bit more generous and, if I wanted to be nitpicking, 'perfect' service would not have required us to ask for some more hot water. It should have come automatically ... but that is really just being perfectionist. All in all, very nice, and I will go there again.

The service was excellent. It’s a cool, chic place, but we felt comfortable and welcome with my 7 year old in tow. The room is just off the lobby, making for interesting people watching, and it also looks out over the river and some iconic Chicago architecture. Beautifully decorated, with good music. The pace of the meal was leisurely. We had a glass of champagne and a basket of baked goods while we waited for our tea and accompanying treats. My daughter had a kids’ version, which was nice, and half the cost of adult tea. A nice offering. The food and tea were delicious, and we left feeling full and satisfied. I’d definitely recommend it and would return again.

A tea event should be quite calm and relaxed rather than struggling to hear the person next to you. We paid a premium for a tea experience and were not too pleased with the atmosphere.

We have done a few different tea services throughout the city of Chicago (Langham, Penninsula, Drake) this was by and large the most 'mailed in' tea service we have experienced. There were about 4 tea choices which were not exciting. The staff knew little to nothing about the teas offered. Someone randomly came and dropped off a bunch of treats for us which were fine, nothing exciting. Most of the sweets tasted out of a box, there was actually a fortune cookie offered which is laughable. Finally, when the tea was brought to our table, they didn't even tell us which tea was which and they didn't offer any suggestion as to how we should enjoy it. Honestly, this was just $100 for someone to brew us some tea bags and drop us off some cookies. I would not recommend this at all, it came off as a cash grab by a luxury hotel and nothing else. Also, a check was dropped off at our table without the individual asking if we wanted anything else. This service was a joke.

I wish it was on the rooftop or at a higher level than the lobby, so I hope that they’ll consider that in the future. My few negatives were the fact that there was not enough filling in the macarons (the two halves should not be touching as pictured); and that the tea selection is fairly light if you don’t like black tea. I generally avoid black teas, especially Earl Grey, but the Earl Grey was fantastic. In a big picture sense: these are very very minor details.

I am pescatarian so my options were so very limited in what I received included in tea service. My friend who eats everything received small bites that included salmon topped prosciutto, I asked why I couldn’t have the same without the prosciutto and I was simply told that it doesn’t come that way. So for the most part my selection was all vegetarian minus one item that was a fish piece. Maybe if I had more of those and less of the veggie options I would’ve been more satisfied especially since tea for one is $50. We both were not thrilled to receive Christmas tree and gingerbread house pasteries in the first week of the new year, we joked and thought maybe they were just left overs from the Christmas holiday. Overall, i love London House and I wil continue to go back just maybe not for tea ;)

The rye on the savory sandwiches was dry; the cucumber sandwich was soggy and the fondant was cracked and dry. The latter tasted and looked old. I would not recommend and would not come again. I also made a request for no pork but the tray arrived with prosciutto....

The trio caroling was very good but sort of annoying when one is trying to have a conversation. Light piano would have been more appropriate.
