    You don’t go to the Living Room at the peninsula because of the excellent but limited dim sum or the fresh shrimp cocktail, but you go there for the overall experience which includes excellent service and the terrific ambiance.

    I’m still thinking about this experience, because it was an EXPERIENCE! Omg! I will absolutely come back! Thank you to the harp player, Ms. Claudine Andres, our servers Erich and Carlos (one more im missing, a lady, thank her too) and everyone. What a great gift for my Mom. She LOVED it! ps: the food was excellent! I’m usually skeptical about high end luxury restaurants because the usually doesn’t match the atmosphere, but this time I’m glad to be wrong.

    The afternoon tea at the Peninsula was impeccable. Yes it is expensive as expected. After all it is a five star hotel with a five star experience. Server explained all the food items in detail. Tea was copiously poured. Asked if we needed a parking validation. Very attentive without hovering. Well trained staff. A birthday was being celebrated; everyone received an individual cake. Nice touch! This is my third visit; will return again.

    This was my second time back and everything was great minus the seating. We were seated in a corner behind a very large Christmas tree next to the harp (which is beautiful but very loud when you’re right next to it). That was disappointing.

    Afternoon Tea was absolutely amazing!! Carlos was incredible!! So nice and everything was so beautiful and so delicious. The only negative would be that someone brought their young child who was quite loud and screamed quite a bit, honestly surprised they weren’t asked to leave. But overall 10/10!!! So fun for a girls day out :)

    Ideal ambiance for a little catchup afternoon with your besties! Chef was pleasantly & engaging with each table of guests. Array of delectable delights were superb and bubbly (of which I am quite selective) was a nice touch. Property would be perfect for bridal/baby shower or any intimate celebration.

    I was so ready to be wowed but corners were cut. For instance, clotted cream was sparse and would only come half plated with lemon curd. That’s silly at such a price and embarrassing. The chairs are not comfortable and one must lean forward so it’s tiring and not cozy for chatting since seated so close to others. I’ve wanted to go forever to this particular tea but would not return. The price is exorbitant so the experience should be generous and inviting instead of spare and awkward. Having said all that, the service was excellent and saved the experience. Our wait staff was top notch- warm, professional and efficient.
