We had a 4:00 reserv. Pianist was packing up, bread was dry, 2 teas were “sold out”, server kept saying how busy she was, etc. disappointed to say the least. I’ve been here before but not sure I’ll return.
The service is great, but the afternoon tea tastes so so.
If you have to bring someone from out of town for a really nice experience on the weekend, consider coming to the Langham for tea. The weekend high tea is an enjoyable experience. Note, it is a bit expensive but you will remember the time versus spending the same amount on an expensive steak dinner or the like.
Beautiful, relaxing tea. The English Flower blend was so soothing.
The Langham and their Lobby Lounge are lovely settings and worth a drive. The afternoon tea service was nice but not outstanding. The food, tea and champagne were delicious. However, the service was mixed. The hostess was nice but seemed like we interrupted her work when we arrived. We did not get the original food we ordered. The table setting was nice but the water in the flower vases was cloudy/dirty and the some of the "clean" dishes at the chocolate fountain had food scraps on them. Nothing major but for the price and ambiance, these service elements seemed unusual and easy to fix.
Chocolate tea on Sundays is heavenly! My whole family loved it!
It was yet again another fabulous experience at the Langham Lobby Lounge afternoon tea. The teas we order were all very enjoyable and the afternoon tea food selections were also good. I love the piano playing in the background....adds a nice touch to the ambiance. Our hostess for the day was awesome and we love the fact that when our teas have turned cold, she would always make sure to serve us a HOT cup every time....we loved that!!! Thank you for an exquisite time!
Although I had made my reservation for afternoon tea a week in advance and it had been confirmed over the phone the day before, they were not ready for us when we arrived on time. The lounge was very quiet, with only a couple of other diners, do it wasn't as if they had had to wait for someone to vacate our table before setting it up. I was annoyed that we had to wait a few minutes while they did so. I also had indicated when making the reservation that I was there to celebrate a birthday. Nothing was done to acknowledge that. I had planned to buy champagne to make a toast, but that was never offered. All in all, the service was not up to par.
Really enjoyed my bday celebration here for afternoon high tea with champagne. our server Janie was amazing so helpful and was running a lot of tables on her own. Live piano in the background made it that more enjoyable and romantic. Will go back again!
Always a great tea experience with excellent service, never rushed, and delicious mini foods. The chocolate dessert bar was absolutely delicious.
