Beautiful room, perfect service. Reservation was for Tea. Price expected was $55 per person. The food was nice. Very hard to keep sandwiches fresh. Scones were outstanding. The price we were charged was $95 per person. On examining the Open Table details after returning home, it is stated that Holiday Tea is $95. That’s on me for not reading the small print. Still, I am disappointed. We love Fairmonts and search them out in other cities that we visit belonging to their Accor plan. Just returned from Maui Fairmont. Can’t say enough good about it.

While I understand this is an "experience" I am appalled out how little value is is offered for the price of $95 per person. There was only a single type of tea allowed to be expected. Additionally, the food portions were abysmally small. Just overall disappointing as an opportunity to have a treat. There are far better ways to spend $200 for two people.

Overall good. Excellent choices of seafood and meat for the sandwiches. Desserts were delicious. Bread choice for sandwiches could have been more creative to suit the fillings. Was not informed about the 45% higher price for holiday tea unti I got there. The three confirmation requests I received did not inform me of this increase in price either. The regular price continued to be advertised with no notice about the increased holiday prices. There was a lack of understanding of how to serve tea properly.Tea was very good however leaves were left in the pot. Green tea will become bitter when left in the pot. The regular price is worth the experience. I would not recommend holiday tea simply because it was well overpriced for the overall experience for this Fairmont Hotel. The holiday tea price was not worth it at all.

We go to the Georgian Room every Christmas Eve day for a family breakfast. We love the elegance, food and service. However this year was extremely disappointing. We had a reservation for 10am and had to wait 20 minutes. I can accept that. We had trouble getting our coffee to us right away. Not cool. We had to wait 40 minutes for our food. And then we waited and waited for our check even though there weren’t many customers by this time. Finally my husband got up to ask for the check.
We already consider our going there to be a special treat and worth the money, but our experience showed it definitely was not worth the money.

Everything during our holiday tea in this restaurant was medium quality (except maybe the loose leaf tea) for a very hefty price. The food was good but not great, same for the service. I have been to other holiday teas and they are expensive but they offer exceptional English service and unique sandwiches and treats. This one definitely did not meet expectations. It was rather disappointing for a stylish hotel like the Fairmont and the high price of holiday tea. I wouldn't go again or recommend it, very sad indeed.

It is a very elegant setting, but I don't plan on returning, especially not in the holiday season.
It was busy, but the service was was very slow and the food was underwhelming.
When you pay over $20 for an omelet, you expect it to be cooked perfectly- this one was overdone.
The Croque Madame was good, but again, at those prices, that's the minimum standard.
We were never offered water and when we did ask for it, it took over 10 minutes.
All in all, it was disappointing.

I could see someone doing this for a special occasion. I could see a mom or grandma doing this with kids. It just didn't make me want to come back every year. I'm glad I did it. The employees were great. The food was yummy. The place is beautiful. It is just for $95 I didn't feel a need to make it a tradition. The chicken and egg salad sandwiches were my favorites. The peppermint dark chocolate my favorite dessert.

I might recommend The Georgian, but not the Holiday Tea. It is WAY overpriced, and when we requested another chicken curry sandwich (thanks for bringing back the older recipe), we were told we would have to be charged. Really? After spending $100 for tea and sandwiches? We've come four years in a row. No more.

We were staying at The Fairmont celebrating a holiday weekend in the city with our children so we decided to try breakfast at the restaurant. It was so nice to be able to book a reservation online because they’re very hard to reach by phone, even if you’re a guest at the hotel.

The room the restaurant is in is beyond beautiful- historic, grand and so fancy feeling. It’s worth it to go and get a bad appetizer and drink just to sit in the room. My girls loved the enormous chandeliers and huge windows. It felt like a very grand ballroom.

Unfortunately the rest of the experience was a complete failure. The food was terrible and we give a lot of leniency to a bad meal but this was truly bad. The Olympic omelet was very dry. The Benedict was very short on hollandaise, not seasoned and really tasteless and the girls’ teddy bear pancakes were burnt. It was like they saw the burnt side and flipped that side down and served it. We ended up returning my kids’ meals and getting refunds but honestly it diminished the entire experience.

The service was ok, far from good. The waiter was just missing most of the time. We had to find someone to refill our coffee and creamer and waited a long time for our meal.

Honestly it was really disappointing and odd to have all the pieces there- an incredible location and historic hotel, eager clientele and yet the food and service were so lacking. It almost felt like they’d given up. Ug! It pains me to advise going elsewhere until they can serve a meal worth the steep price tag (you’ll pay close to double what you can find in the area). I honestly hope they work out the issues- I’d love to go back for their tea service if they do!

Tea was wonderful and Jorge is always an exceptional server. Sadly this is the last tea at the georgian since they’re demolishing and renewing it all in January. We hear they’re spending 10 million on the renovation which will include the full second (lobby) floor as well.
We’re looking forward to seeing the new space but will miss the wonderful ambience of the georgian room.

We were celebrating two birthday and decided to attend the Christmas tea. The tea choices were great, along with the scones and sandwiches. The only downside out party thought was that the desserts fell short.ast year there were small fondant red velvet cakes and others that we were really looking forward too but the stollen bread and cannoli with caviar fell a bit short in our opinion. Service was great though.
