    Of course we were paying for the experience but the sandwiches were mediocre and tasted like they had been I. The fridge all day. The scones were also bland and not very big. They forgot to bring jam and cream until I searched out someone to get it. The desserts were very yummy. The best part of the meal. Still for $150 per person with tax and gratuity, it was not at all worth the expense.

    It is a lovely setting and memorable thing to do, but we wish we had just gone to the lobby bar. The check-in took 15-20 minutes, the service was very slow, the food and beverage were not good, and the bill was high. One highlight was the people-watching!

    Having tea at one of the best “tea spots” in nyc - Waiter too a while to understand what of the 3 different menus we wanted to go with. Being a very attentive guest, I find it weird that on my way back from the washroom my napkin wasn’t properly folded - especially after spending $350 for 2 teas and a very poor taste snacks. The hostess asked - what is the reason for your tea time today? And I mentioned it was our 1st year anniversary - didn’t expect anything but I know that every restaurant would do something for picking them as the place to go for such an important event. It’s sad seeing such a beautiful place, the charm, the history…going down for what is supposed to be the minimum requirement that it should be applied here. 1st and last time for tea

    The setting was beautiful and the service was good but the food was terrible. We ordered 4 different tea menus and had 2 decent items in total. Very disappointing.

    This is an extravagant treat, but the finest afternoon tea that I have experienced since the Plaza Hotel was just a hotel with the grand Palm Court in days past.

    Disappointing for the price. Savoury items tasty but pastry was hard. Chocolate scones are wrong, as is lemon curd. The only alternative to chocolate scone was 2 savoury scones, so missed out on the jam and cream. Would never recommend, sorry.

    I felt the service was okay. With the amount per person, I felt service would be more exceptional. No one explained the tea or the sandwiches, which is common in London. Be sure the waiters know your product and interact with guest beyond a “hello” and take your order.

    It was my fault that I thought it was a dinner menu It was really just appetizers. They were very good but just not what I expected. Always a good idea to read menu and understand what will be offered. Lovely ambience.

    Found the afternoon tea very expensive for what you receive, sandwiches could be better though the selection of cakes were excellent.
