Very good tea, food, and service. I think the price is a bit high, however, for high tea. I would have liked substitute sugar availability too. But overall, it was a pleasant and relaxing experience.

The experience overall was ok but I consider the price to be high for the quality of food. One of the savory items was literally a small cucumber and cream cheese sandwich ... wasn't sure what to think of that when I got it. The sweet items weren't memorable either. The service was excellent though and the ambiance was nice

It was the first time doing high tea in North America. Service was subpar - we were seated and given menus with about 300 different teas - no descriptions or help with selection. When we made our decision, the server doubted our choice, yet gave no other suggestions. Savoury food items was good, but we had higher expectations for the sweet selection. Would I go back? Probably not. Was this a good one time visit? Yes.

Ever since TWG changed hands it has become awful.
The food is terrible and overpriced.
They couldn't even boil the water for the tea.

TWG never disappoints. They had limited selection, and we could only order the Valentine set due to covid but this was explained to us prior to our arrival to the restaurant. Food was amazing, and service was impeccable. I have been telling my friends about this place and am going to take one of them here next time. Super excited for our next visit!

I really enjoyed the entire High Tea experience. The food was very delicious. I am not as fond of desserts compared to savoury dishes, it would be neat to offer a few more savoury items as subs for some desserts but really that is a minor comment because even the desserts were fabulous.

Thank you it was a special afternoon out for my girls and I, we had a lovely time.

I booked a table at TWG for my birthday and I was extremely impressed with the impeccable service. Our server, Nicholas, made our dining experience special. He provided recommendations for our teas and allowed us to smell several options before selecting what we would like. He allowed for us to make substitutions and additions to our meals without charge. He also brought us free macarons and a dessert for my birthday! I will be back!!

I took my mom here for her birthday and all of the staff was amazing and very kind. They even gave her a little surprise birthday cake! :)

Will definitely return to try our their other afternoon tea sets.

The food, service and ambience were all top notch!

Do not recommend, they force each person to pay about 60 dollar, for not fresh food and small bites provided. Service and tea quality are good.

Service was great, friendly, and very good tea recommendations. We went around 3, the sandwiches were probably made in the morning so the sides were a bit hard and dry already. But the pastries were excellent.

It is disappointed that they arranged a table at a narrow alley which facing the area storing for tea set stands. I made the reservation 2 weeks before, assume they can have a good arrangement.

This place does not hold up to the TWG reputation. Every item was bland, ambience is nice but I will never go back. Deeply disappointed as I’ve visited their Hong Kong, Singapore, London locations. This was terrible.

TWG was disappointing. The server was nice and there seemed to be a lot of staff, however it didn’t feel like we were looked after. I asked about Signature Tea set and was told I had to order the Spring Time menu. The menu was fine - but not what we were expecting. The pot of tea was nice flavour. It is still not clear to me if the tea should have been included in the ‘Tea Set’ or if we were meant to choose our own. If I was meant to have the set tea option it wasn’t explained at all - a theme for the entire experience. One of our ordered items was forgotten about, but was on our bill. I am glad I reviewed it. Upon the review I realized that we had been charged for two separate pots of tea on top of the set menu that seems to have tea listed. Very confusing service all together. The menu and offering was not explained well and mediocre for the cost.

I feel like I am complaining about cost, but what I am disappointed about was the value of the experience for what I paid (a birthday treat for my mother). It felt very low quality and a place that attracts tourists and not locals. I have had better experiences for high tea elsewhere and I would not visit TWG again.

It was ok. Nothing exceptional but ok. Food was good but I think the menu has been similar without significant change for a few years.
