    If you've enjoyed other Ritz-Carlton afternoon teas, prepare to be disappointed by this one. The staff, while friendly, were indifferent, and the service was painfully slow, even for afternoon tea. We waited an absurd 1.5 hours for the scone and dessert course and had to remind the staff, who seemed surprised by our request. The presentation was subpar, with a teapot that looked like it had wet toilet paper sticking out, which was actually the tea bag. None of the food items met expectations, though the tea and live harp music were the only highlights. Overall, this experience was a letdown, and I recommend seeking afternoon tea elsewhere.

    Lovely venue for afternoon tea. We celebrated a birthday and were given the royal treatment. We were not rushed and were able to leisurely enjoy each course. The tea was delicious and we were served a wide assortment of savory and sweet treats. Overall, this was a fun and elegant experience and we had a wonderful time.

    Server was kind but service was very slow due to staffing and her being assigned to a large group of 10 next to us. This resulted in delays, lukewarm tea, and excessive noise. The food was just mediocre although we appreciated them taking dietary needs into consideration. Hotel was nice but they need to reconsider the location of afternoon tea as it wasn’t a relaxing experience compared to similar events in other parts of the world. We likely wouldn’t come again unless issues are resolved.

    Afternoon tea would benefit from fresher menu selections and more balance between sweet and savory options. Some items suffered texturally due to storage.

    I agree with other reviews that the tea sandwiches were very dry. They just didn’t taste fresh. It was still a fun way to spend the afternoon. The harp music was lovely.

    Too many children not controlled running around. Too distracting.

    Went for the Papa Noel Tea. So fun. Great service. Unlimited champagne. Multiple tea selections. Particularly liked the chai tea. Miniature sandwiches were very tasty as were the scones and pastries. Can’t wait for Xmas 2024.

    I understand this was a children's event, but children were running wild and screaming around the lounge. I could not believe this was being tolerated. Service was also terrible. We just wanted to get tea over with and were told we had to wait until all the children at other tables were seated to be served. When the food was brought out it was on large stainless trays - the type used in the kitchen. Couldn't believe this being The Ritz. This presentation was something I would expect at a fast-food restaurant. This was an annual tradition for our family, and I think it will be the last.
