Had to ask for a birthday cupcake when I stayed it was my sister’s 80th birthday. Treated her with her two daughters in law and grand child. The high tea was fine. Scones were warm and delicious. Service was better before. They tried but felt pampered before. Our group of ladies would come back separately then to celebrate different occasions. This time my party flew in to NY all the way from the Philippines and I sincerely thought it would be a grand experience. Disappointed too that we could not visit the other party rooms.

I enjoyed the smoked salmon salad and the lamb t-bone. The chocolate butter cake was also delicious. I love to drink a sidecar, and theirs was delightful. There are some antique platters used as decoration throughout the bar and restaurant and my friends kept saying, "How very like you." I swear I have never put a platter on a wall *IN MY LIFE* lol. In any case, this is a wonderful addition to the precious few sybaritic amenities this drab city has to offer. Thank you!

Water came quickly, but took quite a while for the server to come and take our order. The plates and everything were cute as well. I got a salmon and my wife got eggs benedict. Her food was fine, but the salmon was very very bland - like if you just took a piece of salmon out of the freezer, without seasoning, and put it in the oven/pan. It was on a yellow sauce that was bland/slightly sweet, and had vegetables that were also underseasoned (but did look great). Took quite a while for the server to give us the check. The bathroom was very nicely decorated. If you want to go somewhere to take pictures, great. For a nice meal, would continue looking.
