    I went for the afternoon tea, and it was amazing. There was an issue with my reservation, and they were able to accommodate me and my party. Everyone was nice and accommodating.

    There were seven or eight servers standing around talking but definitely not there to work. I had to get them multiple times and no one asked how our meal was. The food was okay but overall I wouldn't recommend it or go back.
