The entire experience was memorable and left us with an indelible impression. If you love culture, refinement and beauty, the Huntington Library’s Tea Room is a must visit. You forget all about time there. The peace and tranquility is good for the soul.

Our server brought me a vegan assortment and it was very satisfying and delicious. I noted that they had other assortments such as gluten free. I highly recommend the Rose Garden Tea Room at the Huntington.

The tea is a bit overpriced. Food was good, service was exceptional. Other drawback. $27 per person to get into the gardens before you ever get to the over-priced tea. You are allowed 1.5 hours, not a minute longer.

The only thing was that, when I asked for a pot of just hot water, the waiter said that they usually charge $3 for it! After paying $37 per person (not including tax and tip), I think the extra pot of hot water should be free.

Food is good but does not command the price per person that they now charge. Go for the experience not for the food or ambiance. The tea selection and quality is the best part of high tea at the Huntington.

I need to draw special attention to our server Edgar who was consistently kind and gracious while managing several tables. I'm also impressed that the staff honored a gift certificate that could have been easily 10 years old - we really appreciated it! Looking forward to my next trip to the Tea Room :)

The ambience at the Rose Garden tea is beautiful but it really needs a major make over! The carpets are old, green and dated. The chairs could use an upgrade as well. They use to have smaller scones and prefer them over the large ones! Service was good and overall experience was good

Our tea was very good, yummy sandwiches and berries. Desserts and scones need some help as they were dry and not very tasty. The tea room itself should be updated and opened up to the view, which is glorious! We love the Huntington - going to try the Noodle restaurant next time. ❤️

Now it’s a set lunch with the three tiers which was still filling, but not as fun as it used to be. The ambience was a little cheesy which I understand since it’s supposed to mimick an old tea house, but the decor could still use some upgrade. It was my boyfriend’s birthday but I didn’t get a chance to tell the server about it because I didn’t really see him that often.

If you add admissions....this is a crazy amount to pay. It's also no longer self serve style. They bring it to your table...and the choices are extremely limited. You get one round...so don't come hungry. It's like two scones, 2 extremely small sandwiches, 2 other savories, and 2 sweets. That's it....With taxes and tips, no champagne, we paid almost $ 50. Service was great, but I wouldn't do it again, unless money was not an issue for me at all.

Spent most of the time juggling and trying to make space for teapots and plates. We also couldn't hear ourselves talk it was so loud.

For the prie fix price couldn't believe how limited food offerings were. Value was disappointing at $40-$60 a head - it ultimately gets you a few mini (finger) sandwiches, a small pot of tea, a couple small deserts and a glass of bubbly (if you order alcohol). The actual cost should have been about 1/2 or 2/3 what was paid. The cheese plate was cold and uninspired. The Server was kind and charismatic (and knowledgable about the teas and food) but mostly disappeared unfortunately after we were served food. We were able to flag down help to sheepishly request a few extra mini sandwiches later - but were disappointed that no came around to offer this, or to ask how we were doing. If you are going to have limited food, it should at least make up for it in ambience. Noise level = very loud Saturday crowd, felt like we were in a noisy pub, packed into the room like sardines. Music selection was odd for half of our meal - really loud volume... sounded like polka (?) and not soothing/inspiring/fitting with the environment at all. Maybe if you go when the roses are in season outside, it makes up for it with some views? The back room looked much more tasteful and quiet - wish we could have been seated in there. Overall, a nice thing to experience at least once at Huntington, if you're spending the day there, but the quality is not up to the standards that it presents and I won't be seeking it out again. There must be other tea experiences in LA that have better offerings and value.
