    I loved everything about the Whitby bar. Cool and beautiful atmosphere, delicious food, wonderful bartenders, just an all-around lovely evening. Yes, on Saturday night, there was a jazz band and the lovely singer was excellent

    I have been to The Whitby for afternoon tea many times. Recently I returned with 3 guests on April 6th. I also had them order take-out dinner. I did not question the bill while at The Whitby but thought I would review it again at home. I noticed that afternoon tea does not actually include tea and that is an extra charge. I am sure that has become necessary due to the increased cost of doing business. We had a lovely time. The staff is very accommodating. I had to call and ask for a change to a later time and the hostess very graciously took care of it.

    A beautiful escape from the busy streets. Colorful, happy spot. Service was excellent. Food was unfortunately average, needed a little more taste to sandwiches, little bland. Scones a bit dry. I am a picky afternoon tea goer though. Chai tea was terrific. Would definitely recommend. Great experience as one of the more affordable teas in NYC

    Service was incredibly slow for not a busy restaurant. Over 30m to find someone to place order. Meal was completed before anyone passed through to request a condiment. Tip is automatically applied so I guess it’s to be expected. Staff were nice just nowhere to be found. Food was good but experience was unnecessarily dragged out and not worth returning. Bathroom was clean restaurant itself is nice.

    We came for tea time, staff was helpful but took forever for our good to arrive. My tea had gotten cold by then. The tea time sandwiches were decent, scones were very crumbly. I've been to the Plaza tea time and it fares far better than this and is around the same price. Ambiance is nice and the place is cute.

    The Whitby is a total delight! I can’t wait to go back. It is a beautiful and intriguing hotel-great art everywhere. And warm, colorful design throughout. The staff is so friendly. A great find in midtown!
