    There was no communication between servers. We ordered two teas, and we didn’t get the second tea until the last course. At which point, we were full and weren’t going to finish it anyway. One server said we wouldn’t be charged for the second tea, but since another server got the check for us, we were charged. Since we spent over 2 hours here, we just wanted to leave and didn’t bother asking to take off the extra tea. Two of the three courses were sweet, and it was honestly just too much sugar. Two savory courses would have been better. Due to supply chain issues, they were out of 3 teas. This is not the fault of the restaurant, but they should have offered comparable teas, instead of leaving them on the menu.

    We were given three courses for our tea. First off-the tea was excellent-though they were out of the three most popular and of course the ones we were excited to try. First two courses came and they were great. Everything g was delicious and fresh. We were eagerly anticipating the last course, the dessert course. Let me say that there were 3 of us. 2 people had a nut allergy. So two plates were different from my plate. On the plates were about 5-6 bite sized desserts. I honestly can’t say much good about 5 of them. One dessert was marginal. Since we were all friends I was interested to see if the nut free plates were better. They were not. One item I was sure going to be okay was a “chocolate” dipped strawberry. That item is hard to mess up. Somehow, Chez Philippe managed to ruin it. It couldn’t have been chocolate but rather a candy coating that looked like chocolate. It tasted bad and left a funky flavor in our mouths. The dessert was the last course and I am glad it was. It was awful. I’m not a chef, and I am sure I could’ve produced a better sampling than what was given. If they had started with the dessert course I would have thought it was a foreshadowing of a disaster tea. Even just some kind of cookie offering would’ve been much much better than what was served.

    Our experience at the afternoon English Tea was fantastic. We were there from 3-4pm. Service and food were great. Noise level was pleasantly quiet and there was no difficulty talking to my wife in a normal conversational level. Definitely would go to "high tea" at Chez Phillipe again. :) The chocolate chai tea as very good.

    This was my first time for the Afternoon Tea at Chez Philippe experience and that is exactly what it is, an experience. Server Kevin was amazing, the 3 different courses of a variety of finger sandwiches, a freshly made scone and an array of dessert bites. Add the champagne and herbal teas - it was wonderful. Highly recommend, ladies. Great for a girls' day starter.

    This was the first stop on a 16 day road trip, and probably the most elegant one. Chez Philippe is a beautiful restaurant. Our server, Chris was very attentive, and the tea was delicious: 4 tea sandwiches, one of the largest tea scones I have ever had, and 4 amazing desserts (most of which were boxed for the road). The price was reasonable for this fantastic tea.

    Afternoon tea. Sweet staff, lovely room. Amazing and yummy sandwiches (savory). Tea not brewed correctly on my oolong, got English breakfast instead of Earl Gray. Slow, slow, slow service. Forgot champagne until we asked. Sweets were okay, but not amazing. Scone was hot, we found that odd (used to room temp scones).

    Meager servings, standard and boring flavors, only the scone was remarkable. The clotted cream was so much less creamy than it should have been. Alot of pomp and not much substance. Excellent service, but not worth the expense or the wait for a reservation.

    We had a wonderful experience at the Peabody for Afternoon Tea. The food was absolutely delicious and fresh - sometimes at afternoon tea the tea sandwiches can get dry like they were sitting around all day - not at the Peabody. The sandwiches were fresh and flavorful, and beautifully presented. In particular, I loved the pimento cheese with tomato and cucumber, salmon mousse, and curry chicken salad. The scones were light and just the right texture. When the server learned my guest was allergic to cinnamon, the kitchen baked a fresh scone without the cinnamon topping on the spot. My guest (a child) also wasn’t very excited about the sandwiches, so they brought a plate of kids sandwiches at my request, and did so willingly. The kids sandwiches looked as good as the adult ones! The ambiance is very nice, quiet, comfortable, yet elegant. Our server, Kevin, was just the right combination of friendly and attentive. He really listened to my guest and wanted them to have a great experience, which they did. He also took some great photos of us (hidden talent?). I have been to afternoon tea in many locations, and the Peabody’s could compete with some of the best in London. It was a great experience from start to finish, and I look forward to going again.

    The Peabody Hotel, and it’s dining rooms, are so historic, everybody should go see it, and possibly enjoy something like High Tea, as I did. The day I was there, they were very short staffed, which surprised the heck out of me. This is a 4 Diamond restaurant. It was 20 minutes before I was addressed by wait staff, and my order taken. It is still Covid, and I completely understand, but in my opinion, they shouldn’t take a reservation if they are shortstaffed.

    The Tea at the Peabody Hotel is a pleasant and relaxing affair. The staff is exceptionally courteous, the food is well prepared, and the surroundings are lovely. I have had several teas through the years and there was never a reason to complain. Until yesterday. We had finished the first course and were waiting for the scones. We waited and waited. Nothing happened and nobody explained why the next course was not coming. One hour after the start time of our teatime I finally asked the waiter what was going on. Turned out the kitchen had a problem providing the requested gluten free scone for my friend. This in itself is excusable. After all, you were making special accommodations for my friend, although you knew of this request way in advance. But leaving the patrons waiting for a long time without the courtesy of an explanation is not good manners. After I complained, management made the right decision to serve the sweet course immediately and have the scones come later. That decision should have been made in the first place, when it became apparent that the scones would not be ready in time. I will add that you made amends by giving my friend a glass of champagne for free, which was the right thing to do. I consider this episode an exception and will continue to recommend and visit Chez Philippe. I just wanted to give you feedback because I believe that you are sincerely interested in improving your guests’ dining experience.

He single-handedly served all tables in the dining room with grace and efficiency. He brought each course and gave a description of each. The food, champagne, and tea were great! The real star of the Peabody Tea was Chris! Highly recommend! Such a pleasant experience!

    My wife has been dying to go so I surprised her and took her. Unfortunately our babysitter plans fell through so we had to take our 5 months old baby with us. It couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience. I called to let them know and they were very kind and encouraged us to come with the baby. Our son was very quiet (thankfully) and we enjoyed the experience so much better having him with us. We can’t wait to go back.
