    Very disappointed! Not like previous years. Food was substandard/dry. Dishes left on table. Uncomfortable chairs. Bathrooms filthy. Staff gave dirty looks for wearing mask. Staff not very friendly. WAY TOO expensive for what you get - costed much more than a year ago.

    Service was attentive. Afternoon tea certainly met our expectations, though I would prefer the emphasis on savoury dishes over the desserts( which were scrumptious !) The Chateau Laurier has a wonderful ambience and Afternoon tea there was a super Birthday treat !

    We had to wait to be seated despite reservations-be aware if you have a tight schedule (staff pointedly indicated 2 hour time limit but slow to start service). Tea selection and scones were excellent. Sandwiches were ok and desserts were overall disappointing. No apparent dress code as some diners in suits and others in jeans. Historic significance and ambiance made visit worth trying the modified afternoon tea at least once.

    Afternoon Tea at Zoe's was a special experience. The food was delicious and unique. Our server was gracious and attentive. She delighted our 90 year old birthday girl by bringing her an extra plate of sweets with a lit candle. Add the tasteful ambiance and you have the makings of a delightful experience.

    I highly recommend to anyone that The Chateau Laurier, Zoe's or Wilfreds as great places to celebrate milestones. We were at Zoe's for afternoon tea and it was excellent. The waitress was friendly, but not overly so, attentive when needed, but didn't hover, knowledgeable and efficient. We all choose a cocktail and it arrived in a timely manner with just enough time before our tea choices were brought to the table. Then the scones, sandwiches and dessert tiers arrive and a waiter explained every item to us clearly and with confidence for someone who seemed so young. Everything was delicious and although there is a 2 hour seating time, we were not rushed and we then moved over to a high-top bar table to round out the celebrations with cocktails. All in all a perfect afternoon with great friends.

    Service was attentive and Ambience was pleasant. Savoury items served with high tea was delicious. Desserts items served with high tea were mediocre and need a lot of improvement. Value from a pricing perspective has diminished. Hopefully this experience was an anomaly as it would be a shame if the quality of items with high tea has deteriorated

    We have been to Afternoon Tea several times before. This past Sat. June 4th/22… We found the girls at check in were very young. They were nice but didn’t really move fast. We loved our tea and food but the air was humid on this day. Our waitress told us it’s due to the building’s age etc. however we feel at such an iconic place there should be something put in place to keep the air cooler and circulating. Thank you

    Most of the staff were very pleasant but two gave us the feeling of their being rushed and disinterested - pictures of our experience were poorly framed and taken by them in a rush. Table was small and crammed and we were disappointed at not getting to enjoy the view with the blinds being pulled down. We would have liked our scones to be warm. Other than that, the food was very good

    The service was good and friendly but it was very casual and didn't really match the upscale environment of a grand old hotel like this. The selection on our trays were almost all sweet, there were not nearly enough interesting savoury bites for balance. I was ready to pass out from sugar one hour in. The bites were prepared too far in advance - crackers/toast/bread were chewy, and other items had lost their sheen, looking instead dry on the outside from refrigeration. There is no way I would pay $150 (two adults) for that selection again. Overall it was good but disappointing.

    Was expecting a bit more for high tea at Chateau Laurier. The bread on the sandwiches was dry (which means they were pre-made hours earlier), and there was a pin-bone left in the trout. It did not live up to the superior quality I would expect of this location. The high tea wasn't bad - I've just had more refined high tea, for lower cost, elsewhere.
