Chefs were v good. Key waitress was sullen. Otherwise good but expensive evening
We visited this restaurant during the Christmas light display. It was an absolutely beautiful setting. They have LIVE music via a pianist, she was fantastic. My dinner was not as tasty as I expected and it was only luke warm. The service was excellent!
High tea was lovely and in a fantastic space. The staff was very attentive and we would definitely return again. One thing I wished that we had known was that we could have switched out a few items. Although we don't have allergies, we didn't realize that we could have said no tuna salad and have something else.
Great special occasion activity and experience.
This experience provided the exact break I needed. After a walk around the gardens my meal was well up to expectations. The reception and service was outstanding.
I found the albacore tuna appy and roasted beets, totally delish! The perogies were just okay. I had recently made perogies and thought mine were better. The duck inside was too well done. Creme fraiche and garnish was refreshing.
The pavlova dessert could be less hard and chewy. I almost asked for a steak knife to cut into it. Sauce was devine!
The apple tattin crust was chewy and mushy. Sauce was way too sweet.
The amuse bouche we had the luxury of experiencing was the best!
Loved the cooked brussel sprouts accompanying the lamb. Cooked to perfection.
Service was terrific! Very attentive staff.
My friend and I have a season ticket and try to make this occasion an annual event. We plan to attend in the summer for the fireworks and plan to have dinner beforehand in your beautiful dining room.
We've enjoyed high tea and dinners in the dining room on special occasions, particularly new year's eve in the dining room. Usually enjoyable despite the high prices, however this year my holiday menu entree was disappointing. The soup was excellent, but the Pacific Ling cod dish had an overriding heavy saltiness that took away my appetite for it. Belatedly, I realize it was prepared with a caper anchovy butter sauce which would explain the briny salty flavour. I only noted the issue to the courteous friendly server at the end of the meal - my fault. When I was debating between the salmon and cod entrees I wish she'd drawn my attention to the cod entree's strong salty feature.
The staff accommodated our special occasion as noted in the reservation. We stopped into the restaurant to see if we could get a drink 1.5 hours ahead of our reservation time because it was so cold outside, and they were actually able to seat us early on NYE. Service was friendly and mostly quick, views were great, and the food was delicious and well worth the expense. Overall great experience!
We had a wonderful time. The food was wonderful. I was so glad to have gotten
a reservation for New years.
Superb high tea in the late afternoon and then a stroll through the gardens as the lights come on. Happy New Year!
