Good break-in to tea service, however, nothing like what you’d expect in London. None of the tiers are refillable and you only get one choice of tea which they refill with hot water instead of bringing you a fresh pot

While I love the atmosphere of The Georgian, the service and overall experience left much to be desired. My sister and I wanted to take our mother out to a special Mother’s Day tea but it ended being incredibly frustrating. Instead we ended up having waiting over 20 minutes just to have more cream brought to the table. By that time our tea was cold. This trend was reflected in every request we made. The staff were very nice but seemed to be in no rush to fulfill our needs. For $215, I expected a lot more. Overall I found it very lack luster.

I bought my wife a gift certificate for mother's day. When they went to pay they were told that the gift was bought in Canadian dollars and that they would still have to pay. It should have been clear about the money. This was a gift from my daughter to her mom, so a little embarrassing that Mom had to pay more. The food was not great, but the desserts and tea were good.

There was a miscommunication that happened with our party and another party ahead of us because we had expected our reservation to be an Easter brunch. It turned out the brunch wasn't much at all and when we arrived at the time of our reservation it was "Tea Time." The receptionist was apologetic, the manager less so (he actually complained that he had hoped to clean up the brunch since it was tea time but could serve us if we insisted). We have attended many Easter brunches at Fairmont establishments, so this was both surprising and disappointing. It was an honest mistake, I am sure...just difficult to understand the lack of festivity in the "brunch" itself. In the past we have experienced something much more festive with piano music, an Easter Bunny wandering around, flowers on the table, champagne, fun for he children, and a more lavish and fun brunch. This could have been any old brunch with a a few chocolate Easter eggs as decoration on the buffet. We would have adjusted for the tea, but that didn't look very festive or fun either. So we opted for the remains of the breakfast brunch that was there because we hadn't eaten breakfast. They couldn't even offer the breakfast menu...also surprising and disappointing. While we understand mistakes happen, it was just disappointing for a Fairmont establishment, especially on Easter.

It is a beautiful hotel. However, it was quite pretentious, the tea wasn’t bad, food was sub par, presentation of food left a lot to be desired...it was my first time having tea in Seattle. I’m thinking expectations were too high since I am from Chicago and there are so many options to choose from. Our server was very nice, on the better side than what I have experienced during my year here so far, however in general, Seattle has a long way to go to get their service up to par with other major cities. I will not have tea there again, but would be great as a starter place for someone who has never been to tea, or a yearly outing.
The food was not very good, weird combos I.e. cucumber sandwiches with strawberries, and it was just on rye bread, they had matcha dessert that did not taste like matcha...and most desserts looked very unappetizing, and their scones tasted more like biscuits.
The overall ambiance was nice but didn’t have the greatest experience. Definitely expected more from the Fairmont.

i made a note on our reservation of four for high tea that one person had tree nut allergies and that the occasion was for an anniversary. when i received a call to confirm, the person on the line even acknowledged that there was someone with an allergy and that the occasion was for an anniversary and i stated there were two anniversaries. i reassured by her mentioning these things that we would be treated very well!

we were seated promptly, but we were in a corner by an doorway so that made the ambiance meh. the teas were explained to us and they even offered a smell test for all of them which was great. the food came out for the first couple and then my boyfriend and i got our set up. i again stated his tree nut allergies and the waiter acted surprised then debated taking our food away so he could bring back a nut free one. i explained i could eat nuts so we didn’t need a whole tray of nut free food for both of us. so he said he’d let us keep the one he brought and it made me feel like he was “doing us a favor”.

he brought out the nut free set up for my boyfriend in a timely manner and the food was good but it just didn’t feel special or what i was looking forward to. he stated again that he let us keep the other food made for two people once he brought the new one out kind of alluding that we got extra food.

i saw a bunch of reviews where people got strawberries for stating it was a birthday or anniversary on the occasion and two anniversaries went unnoticed when we chose to dine here specifically. shame because we stayed at the hotel and that was great but will probably not be back for high tea.

I’ve eaten in the Georgian Room several times this year. I have had tasteless ravioli, scallops with a too rich, boring pea risotto, an over cooked hamburger, two day old bread, and squash soup that tasted like a dead pumpkin. Who is cooking? This gorgeous room deserves a chef that can cook. The 4 cafe on the lower level has decent salads and beautiful French gateaux.

The quality of the food is appropriate for the cost although I was disappointed that I was unable to order Pea Salad for dinner. I was told that the Pea Salad was "put away for lunch only." Strange that if the Pea Salad was on the premises, that I couldn't order a serving of it.

It is noisy so hard to enjoy a quiet conversation.

Thanks,

The desserts are way too sweet. The sandwiches are really weird and I don't like them either. We have two people, but we only shared one plate and decided to not touch the second plate. Server didn't ask me if I have any alleges, and the service doesn't meet my expectation. It's not worth the price.

Service was great, ambiance was amazing. Unfortunately the olympic omlette ($25) had no garnish, cheap shrimp and all around unremarkable for twenty five dollars. The first omlette to come out looked the same but with ham and cheese. I sent it back and it was obvious that they just took the filling out and replaced it because the new omlette was broken and came out VERY fast. I just found it hard to believe that this elevated restaurant would send out something that just looked like two rectangles on a large plate. I should have got the continental buffet for the same price and could have been happier. I don't like writing reviews but we should step our game up to match the ambiance, service and price.

I brought my friend to celebrate her birthday and we mostly had a lovely time despite the less than exceptional service. The food was mostly good except for a couple of items - dry sandwiches were our main complaint. The desserts were lovely and the atmosphere is beautiful. The service seemed rushed. They even asked us to pay our bill halfway through our tea because the server was leaving. I never enjoy that. To top it all off, my friend who is 7 months pregnant and has to eat smaller meals, asked for the leftovers to be packed and the server smooshed the sandwiches and desserts all into one small box so when we came home everything was soggy and ruined. I will be calling them to speak to management. This is not the type of service I expect from the Georgian.
