    What a disappointing High Tea. The service was lacking. They said they were serving champagne; it was NOT champagne (a sommelier in our party knew immediately), but a pedestrian sparkling wine. The tea was in tea bags! The scones were the driest I've ever had. My stuffed puff pastry was empty. We had to track down someone to ask for a refill of our water. Maybe 40% of the offerings were palatable, but none were outstanding. The experience wasn't worth $50 apiece, much less over $100. The live harpist created a pleasant atmosphere, but that could not make up for the underwhelming first high tea my daughters had ever had. At least the bar is low when they go elsewhere.

    Expensive and the food was just not good at all. I have been to numerous High Teas and all were good except this one! Especially disappointing because I was in from NY and brought 4 others for a small pre wedding get together.

    The service was great and the harp was beautiful in the background. They played happy birthday on the harp for my friend which I thought was sweet. Some things to note would include: there is no black tea and the scones as well as a lot of the snacks are not the traditional versions for high tea. A couple of the snacks were stale and/or dry. Considering how much the experience costs I think the food could be better quality, but overall the experience was nice.

    If you’re looking for a traditional afternoon tea experience (like you’d get in the UK ) this is not the spot . The service was prompt and polite and exactly what one should expect. My biggest problem really is with the menu. I normally drink English breakfast BUT I couldn’t find a basic black tea on the menus. The tea selection was like a celestial seasonings, fruity tea assortment. There was nothing traditional about the menu It was an over fancy Americanized version of what Americans might think Afternoon tea is . Btw I am American . The scones were like something you’d get at Starbucks. overly sweet glazed biscuit. The clotted cream was good . No doubt imported. I’ve had afternoon tea many times both in London and in New York and this really was disappointing.

    Took my daughters to High Tea on New Years Eve and we had an incredible time! The ambiance was beautiful. It was our first time to Tea. The attention to detail was impeccable. The individual tea pots were gorgeous. The tea was very good and the food was delicious. I’m so happy we went. It was a marvelous experience and one that we look forward to attending again in the future. This may be a new tradition for us!

    My dear friend of 28 years and her daughter who was friends with mine in preschool have had tea at the Waldorf Astoria twice in December and absent a pandemic would have been going -- and will be going -- annually. The food is terrific and plentiful, the choice of tea is broad and seasonal, the china and table service is elegant, the service is impeccable, and the harpist provides just the right amount of music to enhance rather than compete with the gentle ambiance. Our memories of our first visit set a high bar for this one, so we were taunting the possibility of disappointment, but we all agreed that we enjoyed our experience this time a teensy bit more but couldn't put our finger on why. It is a little pricey, but as an annual outing and as a special treat, it works for us.

    I have had multiple High Teas over the last 25 years. This was the worst. Stale bread, uninspiring fillings. The tea options did not even include Earl Grey or English breakfast, which is an absolute travesty. I had to ask for an extra tea bag as they only placed one in the pot with far too much water. The wait staff did not explain the teas and were not attentive. The decor is bland and boring, more like a conference room which was very shocking especially as its the festive season. I was actually quite embarrassed, as I had taken two friends who had not experienced High Tea before. The cake choices were good, but the scones were awful. The harpist was excellent and her choice of Christmas Carols was excellent. The quality of the Champagne was good.

    My daughter and I went to the Waldorf for tea. It was awful and not worth the $150 per person charged on my card to hold the reservation and already charged when we left. The food was inedible and the tea came out in medium sized pots with one tea bag and lukewarm water (after seeping, both teas poured out clear -even after we asked for boiling water). The room was pretty much empty on a Sunday afternoon - guess everyone realized that the St Regis is MUCH better. My daughter and I usually celebrate with a holiday tea there and it is fabulous (same price). I can't believe we were charged over $300 for such an awful experience. Only made worse by our waiter touching each sandwich and pastry as he explained what they were. Gross!!! Please stay away!!!

    I had a terrible experience with the valet! I pulled up, was completely ignored, and the 1st gentleman went to assist the car behind me. The valet line was getting long, so he proceeds to yell at me to pull up, I roll down my window and ask where, he says "over there" with no regard or direction (not even pointing)! I pull forward somewhere, literally parked my own car, and the valet continues to tend to other cars. I had no idea if I parked in an appropriate space or what I needed to do next, so at this point I was late for my reservation and absolutely livid. I open my door and look back at him, fully prepared to embarrass myself at this fine establishment and give him a piece of my mind - I felt completely discriminated against. He noticed my look and asked his coworker to go tend to me to avoid conflict. The 2nd gentleman was SOOO good at his job because he immediately deescalated the situation by giving me his full attention and approaching me with respect and patience. I was so hot that I could not get my words out and all he said was "take your time" in a pleasant and understanding manner which made me smile, take a deep breath and decide to carry on amicably, especially since he was not the one who offended me. He helped me out and I was able to go and enjoy Afternoon Tea with my friend in peace. That encounter really could have ruined our experience, but I am glad it didn't because the rest of our visit was nothing short of LOVELY. If you want to be greeted with dignity outside, be sure to pull up in a nice vehicle and look important! If not, I hope you are met by the 2nd valet not the 1st rude boy! Nevertheless, I cannot wait to return for Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf. The service (inside) was exceptional; the tea and food was all delicious, and the atmosphere was very calm and relaxing. We felt like we transcended out of the busyness of Atlanta to a charming fairytale land just for that moment. I also look forward to trying their dining as well.

    Not enough bang for bucks. The food was good but too many sweets. More lunch time fair is needed, The Tea Pot Servers did not keep the tea warm at all, I wanted more ambience but it was still a very nice outing for me and my granddaughters. The Drake in Chicago for Afternoon Tea sets the bar.

    I already put a note that I booked for my friends to celebrate their anniversary. So, the hotel should not use my dietary restrictions for the meal to enhance the quality of the foods and service. It’s chosen but it’s didn’t work out.

    We had a great time. The servers were terrific, as was the host and we loved the harpist's beautiful take on several classics. The food and tea were excellent too. I would have preferred a larger teapot (it was a French Press) but that's minor. It was a special occasion for everyone. It was very expensive. We won't be able to do this again for quite some time.

    Every bite was delicious. The setting was enhanced by the harp player. The small, dedicated area is an extension of the bar area and has a more natural and feminine vibe. The chairs are comfortable. Tea was good - but I wished for more selections. The tar cups were plain white and tea served out of a French press. It is something different to do! Consider it a fancy, unique lunch and you’ll be totally satisfied. It is a less formal, less authentic version of afternoon teas I’ve done in more spectacular settings.

    Overall, it was nice, but the space was not at all sufficient. It appears to be a walkway that was renovated into a dining space, and it shows. The tables are crammed together so it's really, really loud and hard to enjoy your own conversation. It's also hard for servers to navigate around them without constantly hitting chair backs. The room looks lovely, and the harp is really nice, but it's simply too narrow and small overall.

    We had the afternoon tea sitting at 3pm, we arrived early and were seated at the bar. We were greeted immediately by a extremely nice and professional craft bartender and given a complimentary glass of champagne. We were seated quickly and enjoyed the lady playing harp music in the dining area. The tea choices were numerous - though I would have enjoyed a classic English tea we both enjoyed our selections of the oolong and sugar plumb. The sandwich assortments were good and offer various options for non meat eaters. We particularly enjoyed the egg salad croissant sandwich and the guacamole toast with tomato. The deserts were good and numerous and the scones although completely different from what I was expecting were moist and sweet with almost a egg custard like bread inside, this paired nicely with the jams that were served. The clotted cream was not what I have experienced in the typical traditional UK English scones and cream but it was still enjoyable but I surely did miss the traditional scones and clotted cream I have had before. All in all this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and we will be back.

    The afternoon tea experience was absolutely amazing! Myself and two girlfriends had a great time. We received plenty of delicious foods as well as champagne and sparkling apple cider (pregnancy friendly) the display of food was absolutely beautiful and the tea was delicious you could choose from several flavors and there was a harpist playing during the entire experience. Our servers were all kind and provided an amazing experience. Would highly recommend to anyone! Parking for valet was validated upon arrival we didn’t even need to ask! I will most definitely be back!
