    I enjoyed the savory sandwiches. Some had great flavor and filling. Others were more tasteless, like the cucumber sandwich. The onion sandwich was so tasty but consisted mostly of bread. I ended up putting half of sandwiches on other open sandwiches to balance the flavors. Great experience overall.

    I had been here before and had a lovely experience. I took my mother in law and sister in law here for a birthday, and was really disappointed. Although the food and atmosphere was great, the experience was not as expected. When checking in, I was cut on line by several people. The girls in the front didn’t seem to care. After I checked in, 4 other groups came in after me and were seated first. We were on time to our reservation, but since we had to wait while the other groups were prioritized we lost much of the time we had planned to be there as the tea room closed along with the rest of the library. Upon our meal, parts of the table and some of our tea cups, water glass, and napkins were dirty. The servers were very kind in helping us get different ones, and overall the servers themselves were great, but the experience was just not as expected. I really talked up this place to my guests too, only for them to feel like it was very dirty and like the people in the front didn’t care.

    It's a great experience. Especially viewing the gardens before our tea. I had the vegan menu. My sister had regular. We both thought the sandwiches were delicious. My desserts were ok. I tasted all but decided not to eat them. There was a cute, small dish of fruit too. They brought a very beautiful 'happy birthday' dessert for my sis. The teas were very good! Plus, there's a large selection of teas. I think it's a bit pricey for what you get, plus you need to pay an entrance fee. But overall, we enjoyed it.

    Love the new remodel of the tea room. Food was excellent and our server was very accommodating. It was very cold where we were sitting which I think was under the air vent. A first for me was the All Gender restrooms, even if the stalls are floor to ceiling....you still wash your hands next to the opposite sex. Note: there are separate gender restrooms near the entrance.

    I love high tea, and this was a perfect example. An assortment of finger sandies and tiny desert treats, everything was good and we had a great time!
