Who would have thought you could experience "food coma" after tea? Go on an empty stomach. So filling, so good.

I brought my two friends here as a conclusion to a bachelorette weekend, and it was perfect. The interior is beautiful and we had a seat right by the outer window extension which was wonderful. The tea choices are delicious, the scones are large, and the sandwiches are fresh and inventive. Our server, Victoria, was wonderful and proved very strong while carrying around all the tea set components.

The meal did not feel rushed and the social distancing within the building was very reassuring. The only thing I would recommend is that you make sure to come with an appetite! I would attend here again for their Afternoon Tea service.

Our server was amazing and helpful, the food was incredible, and was absolutely worth the price. Seating was a little bit awkward having a table lower to the floor, but overall it was a wonderful way to get used to eating indoors again!

Food was good, tea was great, well worth the experience. Drawing room could do with a little tidy up and a coat of paint, some tables are stuck in corners and rather small for the stuff on it. Some items are not really authentic Victorian afternoon tea, Avocado's did not arrive in England until 1960's. Well worth a visit

Did not like the current size of sandwiches. Way to much bread with little filling. Prefer your finger sandwiches and open face sandwiches. However, the experience was great and so was the service.

An elegant and sophisticated high tea. We sat in the Solarium which was quiet and lovely. The Traditional Tea service came with more food we could eat in one sitting, an assortment of sandwiches, amazing scones and pastries. All in all it made for a lovely afternoon in Niagara on the Lake.

I preferred their old menu. Just says an assortment of sandwiches on the menu so I didn’t know what was being served. Should have asked I guess! Sandwiches were too big! Tea room sandwiches should be dainty. Cucumbers were cut too thick. I didn’t like the guacamole on flatbread and I don’t like smoked salmon. Deviled eggs were on the menu but weren’t served. Love the place but wish they stayed with their old menu.

It was absolutely lovely! A 4oth anniversary treat! And Grace, our server, not only was exceptional, she saved the day. She brought us a container to box our leftovers in and of course, we forgot it. After walking around the town we realized neither of us had it, so back to the hotel and Grace had thoughtfully put it aside for us. We had packed up the sweets and were looking forward to finishing them later. One thing that I have come to realize over the years is no matter how perfect the ambience or how delectable the menu, it's the service that truly stands out in the end. You folks have the winning combination. Thank you for treating us so royally!

Most of the food was not made in-house. For $38 without tax and tips this meal was very lackluster. All the savoury items were cold.
- Wholesale macarons (can be found at Costco)
- From frozen pie crust for the lemon tarts
- Too much bread in the smoked salmon sandwich (small hamburger bun)
- Tasteless cucumber sandwiches (not enough cream cheese or spices)
- Not particularly good service. Waited for several minutes before being seated, little service during the meal
- Guacamole cracker was soggy and dense
- Jam and cream were served in takeout sauce containers, even though we were dining in
- Nice atmosphere, very Victorian and quaint
- My favourite item was the warm scones. Definitely made those in-house

We enjoyed our high tea celebrating our 53 rd anniversary. Food was great, tea was tasty, and service was great! Could have enjoyed a little bit of background music. Opened window halfway through our tea kind of put a damper on our occasion as flies were coming in from the street. Had to ask server for a take out box to put our leftover food in to keep flies off.

I booked High Tea for my daughter my mom and my sister as a special girls day. It did not disappoint! Lovely afternoon where we all were spoiled - decadent meal, delicious, excellent portion size. Very generous and so fresh! This was our first time, but certainly not the last.

Thank you Prince of Wales!

Service was superior and food was plentiful although cucumber and salmon triangles had bread that was quite dry. Scones, sweets and avacado cracker were super - we couldn’t finish and had to doggy bag some some. Server was Uber attentive!
