    Service was mediocre. Vegetarian friend told them he was vegetarian and they forgot. No silverware. No kids option so had to pay full price for an 8 year old that had a few bites. That hurts when it’s $75 a person. For the prices I expect exceptional service and that wasn’t there. Also didn’t live the person FaceTiming half the time we were there. Ruins the mood when that overpowers the harp. Will be going to The Biltmore for tea from now on.

    I expected better from them. Seats were uncomfortable. They forgot our water and we had to make multiple requests. Servers were nice though. Food was decent. Tables were small. Had to actively make sure things don’t fall off the table.

    Thank you for bringing back the Tea Room! We have been enjoying this for years and have cherished memories. This year, we celebrated a Langham weekend with our adult daughters. We spent three hours enjoying the tea, ambience and food. Everything was as we remembered from years ago and we all hope to continue this tradition.

    Beautiful and historic venue made for the well heeled but somehow gets away with mediocrity at a premium. Also, for the Downton tea service... we wouldn't know. Our reservation was for 3. The host was even oresent till 3:10pm. By the time we left at 3:25pm having paid for valet and losing $20 to reserve, we still hadn't been seated.

    Reserved table a month ago, when you check in still need to wait almost an hour to get seated. We have a big party for 7, they put 2 tables together with different levels for us. The menu said you can have your choose of tea, but the servers said we can only have 3 pots of tea for our table for no reason. When the tier came, no one introduced the food, we need to look up the menu on the website by ourselves. However, they did introduced each food items for the other tables. The 4 set came in a tier, the sandwich was overlapping and was too hard for us to get the food. We just dropped some of it since they put it too crowded. Food is okay, but still bad experience. I would said below standards for a luxury hotel.

    his place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool but the staff is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is good, some english classics and some twists, so worth it.

    The tea was very elegant and the setting was fabulous. All staff were professional and friendly. The price was a bit high for the amount of sandwiches and tea cakes and the scones were a bit stale. They have added a 20% surcharge that did not include gratuity so that was a surprise. Over all it was a nice experience. Loved the Downton Abby theme

    First there was a charge of $5 per person which did not get applied to the balance. 2nd we were the 1st guest and asked to change our tablet of 5 to another tablet of 5 and the hostess would not do it. The food was ok, there was no Devon Cream, there were two small lemon cured and whip cream for 8 scones and 5 people!. The desert we did not touch as it did not seemed homemade. The hostess had a gold fanny bag in front of her which was not suitable for a hotel hostess and yet for a Bridgeton one! It said it was sold out yet 75% of tablets empty. With service charge and the $5 above we each paid $94 per person which I would not mind, but it did not worth it AT ALL

    I’d like to know why Open Table charged me $5.00 pp for this reservation and then did not tell the Lamgham so it could be applied to my bill? Seems sketchy Open Table??? Since when do you charge to make a reservation and then keep the money?

    Everything was very delightful and harmonious. We had various waitresses helping us during our tea time. However, there was one waitress that was only making eye contact and smiling towards my friend, and even when I said something to engage with her or said to her thank you, she didn’t even looked at me to acknowledge that, which made me feel as if I was invisible. Other than that, everybody else were very kind and friendly. I booked this reservation and paid for the service, there should at least be respect and consideration. Thank you.

    For this price, it should be the best high tea ever but it’s not even close. The ambiance is so lovely and the service is quite good. But thats where the positive ends. The sandwiches are very thin and tasteless. Very unimpressive. The scones are just ok. The sweets are fair and way too many. The tea is quite good and pretty hot. In summary, the price is extravagant and the food is nowhere near what it should be. Very disappointing. For such a lovely hotel, they need to do so much better.

    There are several very memorable things about having tea at the Langham in the Lobby Lounge. The service is impeccable. The food is outstanding. And the ambiance is wonderful. That is why we come back. Jenny was our server both times were were there and she is so attentive and accommodating. Our dietary needs are met with a smile and she exceeds our expectations. What a lovely place to spend a couple of hours enjoying tea and conversation while looking out at the beautiful serene gardens.

    The tea selection was fantastic, however it would have been nice to have a chance to switch between many different types of tea. When we selected our tea, we were given a large quantity of that one type of tea but we were expecting to be able to try different types before the end of the outing. Otherwise, the ambiance was amazing and the harpist played beautifully. We had a great time.

    Tea. The sandwiches were not that good. Too much salmon for a little sandwich, shrimp was okay. The other sandwiches didn't have much flavor. Tea and sweet stuff was good. Scones were different looking, but tasted okay. Service was just okay. Had to find the waitress to settle our bill which is unacceptable in my opinion.

    The servers added to the level of enjoyment. I’m not a big fan of gourmet fish finger sandwiches, like smoked salmon and smoked trout. I do prefer more mainstream sandwiches like chicken salad. But I do eat the trout one and find it well prepared, presented, and interesting. I gave the smoked salmon one to my husband. He enjoyed it! These sandwiches come as described. We can not customize the sandwich order at this place. So even though I’d prefer options to the fish selections, I gave the food five stars because it is truly well done, regardless of my personal tastes and preferences.

    I had a wonderful experience as always and look forward to returning. The music being played however through faulty, poor connection speakers in the lobby lounge was irritating to listen to, as the music would have been lovely had it not been coming from a broken speaker. Certainly there’s an AV person on staff to address this?
