Had an amazing family high tea. Our table for 10 was set and ready on arrival. Service was very efficient. The scones with cream and preserves were OUTSTANDING!!! The rest of the food was very good, but not exceptional. Great selection of teas. We were never rushed to finish or leave. Overall a very pleasant experience.

We brought my 4yr old and my 7yr old, and they had a wonderful time! My sister and I really enjoyed it too.

My friend and I returned to the Victorian Tea room, our second time. The food is fresh, delicious, and served in such a beautiful high tea way. The staff are welcoming, friendly and a joy to be with. We even were able to view the party room downstairs; it was beautiful! Great place for 45 or so with a liquor license too. Decorated so nicely and you would truly feel you were at the palace for high tea. I'm wanting to keep them in mind for any showers or partys coming up. Of course we'll be back but maybe introduce some of our friends to the Victorian Tea Room.

The victorian ambiance was very quaint and sophisticated at the same time. Service was very helpful and unobstrusive. Food was excellent too, the scones were fresh out of the oven. Only thing i disliked were the little tarts with goat cheese.

The tearoom was extremely cold. They should invest in a better heating system. I ordered the citrus tea, but did not tease any hint of lemon or orange as suggested on the menu. We wanted to have high tea, but there was a miscommunication, so we ended up having the tea and salad combo, not what we wanted. Ended up going elsewhere for a sandwich. The cost was rather pricey for what we go. But the service was excellent, minus the waiting, since there was only one wait staff.

Travis was a friendly and great help in choosing tea. He is clearly very passionate about afternoon teas and his tea room. The sandwiches was nicely done and the scones were just delicious. It is very hard to find scones that good in the GTA. However the petite fours are little disappointing. To me, they was mass production in a factory and brought in. But the choice of tea (over 50) made up for the lack of sweets and the scones were so good that I didn't ear the petite fours anyway.

The sandwiches were fresh but the tuna and smoked salmon were fishy. The tea and scones were delicious. The petit fours were lovely but unmemorable. I'd find a different caterer for the dessert. The service was excellent. I'd return for the Te scones and cucumber sandwiches

While the food was fresh and nicely presented, the selections were mundane and unimaginitive;Plain egg , tuna salad etc. Scones were warm and yummy! Petit fours looked commercially prepared and somewhat unappealing. We were never offered a refresh for our tea. While our afternoon tea experience was pleasant enough, it was overpriced for what we received. I wouldn't not go out of my way to return.

Went here for Afternoon Tea and was not disappointed. Lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes. The scones were freshly baked and extremely light! Delicious! Will definitely be back.

Overall it was a good experience. My friend, who was celebrating a birthday was very impressed. I certainly would return.
My grandson who likes tea and goodies might come with me another time.

Both the food and presentation were wonderful. The Victorian Tea Room combines the intimate service of a family-run restaurant with the ambiance of a formal tea. My friend and I have been meeting at the same tea room for years. Now, we'll be returning to the Victorian Tea Room.

Went here for afternoon tea. The food was awesome, their scones are to die for and their little desserts are also super tasty. It's a small, cute place, perfect for small groups or duos. Great service, really nice people working there. Would definitely recommend! I can't believe I didn't find this place earlier.
