Afternoon Tea
Lounge in comfort while enjoying The Peninsula's legendary Afternoon Tea. The Living Room's Afternoon Tea menus include an optional glass of Champagne and a tower of traditional high tea requisites; from savory finger sandwiches to a selection of sweet, bite-sized pastries and scones, all accompanied by the music of a classical harpist. We offer three High Tea seating's daily at 12:00 PM, 2:30 PM and 5:00 PM.

In the evening, the lilting sounds of the hotel's resident pianist, Antonio Castillo de la Gala, create a supper club ambiance. Spend a romantic evening relaxing on the comfortable couches by the fireplace, indulging in a cocktail and appetizers and enjoying the lovely piano music in The Living Room's romantic atmosphere.

Love having tea over here -- substituted it for lunch the day before Valentine's Day. Great service all around, starting with the offer of a car wash at valet (SO needed it, and price not too terrible), and extending through the rest of the details. Food and tea were all lovely, service was just right, and ambiance was an oasis. Best of all, saw the person next to us order lunch, which we didn't know was an option here -- so hopefully we can come more often than just high tea. Only complaint was not within control of the restaurant - a business traveller nearby pounding away on her laptop and with a table full of files and shuffling papers the entire time was a bit of a distraction. Again, not the fault of the restaurant that someone wants to use a table as their own personal conference room - but did cloud the ambiance a bit. Still 5-stars all around.

Fantastic server (Edward) and delightful living room with ambient music but the amount of food for the price was disappointing. I’ve been having afternoon tea for years in the UK and they tend to offer complimentary refills of the sandwiches and scones etc. If you did that, it would make this experience 5star.

This is a beautiful spot to celebrate a special occasion. The tea was good. It would have been nicer if they offered a non-alcoholic option. Out initial waiter was very attentive, but then all of a sudden he disappeared and we weren't sure who had taken over for him. Bottom line, everyone enjoyed themselves in this extremely pleasant atmosphere.

I always have tea at the Peninsula when I’m in Los Angeles. It is absolutely wonderful. Edward provides wonderful service and is so welcoming. He remembers me when I walk in either alone or with my daughter. Fabulous atmosphere!

Torn between 2-3 stars. The service was great and staff friendly; however, won’t be back or recommend this high tea experience. Very stingy and up charge for everything. We have had high tea in London at the Mandarin Oriental, The Plaza, on the Cunard and was fantastic—they brought sandwich sampling for my party, NOT at the BH Peninsula brought sandwiches for a party of 2 instead of 3 and charged again when asked for the 3 person sampledisappointing... come on sandwiches!!! Ridiculous.

We go every year during the holidays to enjoy tea and the hotel’s holiday decorations! Perfectly appointed restaurant with a harpist playing adds to an elegant experience. Delicious finger sandwiches, warm scones and petite desserts were heavenly! Loved the green tea pomegranate and the glass of champagne with the Royal Tea. A great time with the girls. Great for a special occasion.

This was a festive, delicious and enjoyable experience. I haven't been in several years, but the experience lived up to my expectations and memories. The service was friendly and attentive for the most part but our server disappeared towards the end. After a break in service another associate took over in completing the service. Portion size was a bit small but beautiful and delicious never the less. Highly recommended for a formal tea in a great setting and all the appropriate accouterments!

The service was a bit off on this visit. I had specified gluten-free for 2 guests on the phone as well as on the online reservation. The server was not aware. One of my gluten-free friends received the wrong tea at the onset. There was confusion who was gluten-free when we received our food. Not sure if it’s a new staff or the chaos of the season which was the root of the problem.

This was absolutely a fabulous experience. I took my mom, who was visiting from out of town, for her birthday. Not only was the hotel as lovely as I remember it, but it was fully decked out for the holidays - truly a wonderful day. The staff are so attentive an don top of every little detail - just amazing!

Went there for my birthday for afternoon tea. They provided great service. Especially with my 5 year old niece who was with me. The food and tea was very delicious. They also brought out cake pops on this cute tray with a candle for everybody who was there celebrating a birthday which was a nice final touch before we headed out.

It was the living room that we had our meal in but next to it. We ate outside and it was fabulous.
