Terrible! The other customers were loud & eating like pigs. Our server came around way too infrequently. We poured our own tea which meant getting up and walking to the other side of g to be table. The food was so so. Overall very bad experience & we were excited for a lovely holiday tea 😟

It was lovely and delicious. Very expensive - about twice what tea normally costs - but I’m assuming there’s a Covid-related reason. The Peninsula was one of the few places offering Christmas tea so we were very happy to have the experience. Delightful.

Love the afternoon tea service...especially during the holidays. Beautiful atmosphere and delicious scones, tea sandwiches and sweets! A nightcap at the Belvedere is a great way to end the experience!

Ordered the $125 traditional tea set plus $35 endless champagne. Overall the pastries are mediocre, service is not impressive, tea is worst than Starbucks, champagne is the only good part but just the choice of the champagne itself, not this restaurant. I will not go back. The hype is definitely more than the quality. Disappointed

Always a first class experience and glad to see the pandemic hasn’t changed the afternoon tea, in fact it has only been enhanced. Special mention to Erick who seems to make everyone feel like they are the only one. Amazingly done.

The high tea is quite lovely and run beautifully. The service is polished, and the food is exquisite and favors sweet to savory by about 2:1. Servers circulate with teapots, so you don't have to commit to a single blend or worry about a neglected pot getting cold. Everyone gets their own tower, which is an huge amount of food but also crowds the table more than a bit.

Also, note that the venue is called The Living Room, and they're not kidding. Personally, I don't like trying to eat while sunken in a fluffy couch straining to reach a coffee table. There are proper chairs and tables, but they are tiny (like you'd have in a living room). We were only two, and they had to bring an auxiliary table to hold all the food and accoutrements. That said, the room is impressive and truly elegant in the way that a tailored suit jacket is beautifully stylish but not quite relaxing.
