It is very clean and we felt safely distanced. Everything is beautiful and the food is lovely. Great, friendly service as well! Would go again.

I made my reservation more than a month in advance but when I arrived I had to wait for a hostess to show up and then be told I couldn’t be seated because they didn’t have my reservation. There was only one hostess and one table seated. She seemed frazzled and even told us they don’t always get the OpenTable reservations. We left. Very poor experience.

The server was quite nervous and didn’t explain much as a first timer. She also didn’t make any recommendations and or explain the menu. Our food came out before my tea and or my daughters drink. There was a table ahead of us that let there children run around and play without supervision another thought is it’s an OPEN area so another potential customer came w daughter and was taking pictures which can be disturbing while enjoying your dining time.

We had a very nice time - HOWEVER - if you book here on Open Table be sure to call and verify they got your reservation! They told me they didn’t have mine and that they don’t always get the reservation made on this app. They also said that this app allows people to make appts when they are not even open. So that being said - they should probably cancel this service if the reservations are unreliable! They did accommodate us though and the place was nice and reasonably priced considering the location and affiliations.

It not a "I'm real hungry" place. But it is a special place for a medium 'bite' with someone who kinda wants to feel special. Afternoon or Breakfast Tea, real china cups and saucers, delightfully overworked and nice wait staff. Don't be in a hurry to eat they could use more wait staff.

We hate afternoon tea at Tilly’s and everything was amazing! We had a lovely experience and will definitely return! Arguably the best tea service I’ve had since Fortnum and Mason in London. I would recommend the afternoon tea for the variety—their sandwiches and scones are delightful and the service was excellent too!

We were so excited to go but when we got there on Monday, found out it is actually CLOSED on Mondays! So disappointing! Why there is an option to make reservations on a Monday they OT is beyond me. Please update the hours to reflect this.

We made a reservation 2 weeks prior. We were celebrating my daughter’s 3rd birthday! We received the email confirmation for our reservation but when we arrived they were closed. This was extremely frustrating since aunt and grandpa traveled over an hour to attend.

Luckily the manager of saks gave my daughter a free make-over since her heart was broke.

FIX YOUR OPEN TABKE AVAILABILITY PLEASE!

Perhaps this is a limitation of OpenTable, but if you’re not able to honor same say reservations thru this app, then you should at least say that in the comments. Instead, I received an email confirming my reservation and got my daughter’s hopes up for an impromptu girls date, only to be turned away.

Perfect for an afternoon tea with a friend or lunch with a group. Food and service are outstanding. Tables are far apart so you have personal space and no competing noise so you can easily carry on a conversation in private. Quiet, calm, peaceful atmosphere makes Tilly’s Tea Room a perfect place to unwind, relax, and enjoy.

Great option for a beautiful tea party! You can choose a tea party option that includes: your choice of a pot of tea with free refills, samples of different sandwiches, a scone with your choice of jam, and a sample of pantries. They also have other light fare options such as soup, salads, and other sandwiches. There's an extensive tea list. The egg salad sandwich was surprisingly wonderful!!! I would definitely recommend trying it. We had two little girls with us and they chose to share the princess tea platter that included choice of sandwich, pink lemonade (among other drink options) in a pretty champagne glass, scone, and pastries. It's an elegant setting and the prices are reasonable. I personally think it's more of a snack/brunch, rather than full meal, so don't go too hungry! We made reservations. It wasn’t busy for a Sunday afternoon, but I’d recommend making reservations to be on the safe side. This tea room is a great option and worth trying!

The hostess was spectacular. You could tell she has a lot of tea room experience. The scones were absolutely amazing. Definitely recommended if you like tea but not so much of the old vintage English tea atmosphere.

The ambience was peaceful and quiet and decorated nicely. There were lots of delicious sounding things on the menu. I had the chocolate super berry tea, it was lovely. We had tea and scones. The scones were not warmed. It seemed a lot to pay for cold scones. Service was a little slower than I would like. I would like to try again to test other things on the menu.

I have eaten at Tilly's Tea Room on several occasions and always found the food to be outstanding and the service to be top notch. Their scones with clotted butter and jam are worth the trip alone.

Nice place for afternoon tea. The tea comes with six sandwiches which I like and they were delicious. It comes with two each of egg salad and cucumber and customer picks the other two. A scone with jam or curd is included along with four sweets. $29.00. It is nice because they also offer an option of sharing a tea tier with a friend for an additional fee of $10.50 which includes an extra scone and pot of tea. Service was excellent. The decor is modern and clean so not the typical cozy atmosphere one might think of in a tea room. The scones was a tad dry but nevertheless delicious with butter and orange curd. The sweets were small and delicate which is nice. Tip automatically included which bothers me a bit but ok. This is a nice and quiet getaway from the bustling mall before or after a movie or shopping. Would definitely come again fir tea. It looked kid friendly.
