Went for tea at 12:45 on a Sunday and it was not as good as it was last November when I went for the first time. It felt chaotic as the servers were all too busy. When we got their attention, they were rushed, not a 5 star experience. Tea was poured weak. Most of the food is too starchy and we were left feeling underwhelmed.

I absolutely loved my dining affair at Trifecta. The afternoon tea was a divine experience. Everything from my first interaction with the maitre d’ to my server to the food itself was fantastic. I commend the bar and restaurant for its attention to detail. I felt very taken cared for. The food and drinks were fabulous as well. Very nice welcoming champagne and smooth teas, paired well with all of the scones, sandwiches, and desserts. Would definitely return with others, as well as try the cocktails outside of afternoon tea time. Also, bathroom was super clean and wonderful.

Food was good however the scones did not come out warm and were, in fact, a little hard. We had mentioned that it was a birthday celebration, but there was nothing done to highlight that. Overall, the ambiance and experience were good. The food could be better for a high tea.

It's expensive, but worth it. A thoroughly unique experience. Afternoon tea with all the trimmings, and then some. It starts with a chilled glass of prosecco, sipped while you choose your tea. Each is then served in a china tea-for-one pot, each teapot more beautiful than the next. Uniquely, each tea served is paired with a liqueur (grand manier for my lady grey tea), and served with beautifully crafted savory sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and little jewels of pastries. And the service more than matched the beauty of the meal. A rare and elegant experience!

Tea at Trifecta must be one of the events you include in your visit to Boston! Even if you are a local go for the unique experience. It is one of the most distinctive teas I have ever had, The atmosphere is elegant as you are surrounded by art. You are greeted by a glass of bubbly, and whatever tea you choose, I got the Dalton Black, it is paired with a perfectly matched liquor that can be added to the tea or sipped separately. The food was divine, especially the egg, smoked salmon and curried chicken. Each person gets their own distinctive tea pot that sits atop the matching cup. The service is friendly yet professional. It was a perfect respite, calm and relaxing after a year of chaos.

My friends and I thought it would be a cute afternoon to get high tea together. We put reservations in for 12:30pm. Due to some unexpected traffic we were 10 mins late (which we called ahead of time to inform them we were going to be late). When we got there, our table was still not ready.

When we were seated, we weren’t not given actual menus, even though some other tables did get it. The waitress did not even tell us about the QR code to look at for the different tea types. She just came up to us and asked if we were ready.

The food was alright, nothing outstanding. The scones were good, especially with the jam. The sandwiches were tiny. We never were checked up on to see if we needed anything else. My friend and I ran out of tea and had to flag our waitress down for more water for our tea.

We felt as though we were being rushed out of there towards the end. It would have been fine because their 2:30 reservations were coming in, but they never rushed the other tables?

Overall, the food was okay; I can get it at any other afternoon tea / high tea place. But I probably won’t be back if that was the standard service for the four seasons.

We went for high tea, the food was good but uninspired, but the tea itself was awful. We had a single tea bag in an individual pot, and the refill was a hot water top off with no additional tea added or refreshed. The atmosphere and staff were both pleasant. Overall would not recommend if you are a serious tea drinker.

When one thinks of a Christmas brunch at the Four Seasons, the first word that comes to my mind is bountiful - this brunch was anything but. Is the Four Seasons no longer a five star hotel? Does the hotel have a shellfish allergy? To be fair, there was "lobster" mac and cheese, and one could get a single crab claw paired with two mini shrimp swimming in a glass of cocktail sauce, but nothing close to a raw bar. The egg tartlets were cute but belonged at a PTA thank you brunch; waffles yes but pancakes no. Fruit salad? Nope. Lots of cheese. Two big platters of cheese. But only one small plate of crackers, no bread and still no fruit. When we arrived and the waitress poured us each almost two fingers of champagne (in a champagne glass), I did reflect that one might get a cheaper pour when the champagne is included, but I found out too late that it wasn't included. So, $700 later (four meals and four "glasses" of champagne), we left super disappointed and a bit nostalgic for the Christmas brunches of yesteryear. (BTW, Zuma is at the same hotel and that restaurant is fantastic in every way!).
