The iconic Palm Court at The Plaza hotel with a complete renovation helmed by Master Architect Thierry Despont. The Palm Court showcases classic American savory menus from morning to evening, while Despont has brought the grand feeling of Central Park indoors, creating an ambiance that feels warm, private and glamorous. Bespoke furnishings provide a relaxed, yet elegant setting well-suited for either a professional breakfast meeting or an evening of cocktails crafted by mixologist Brian Van Flandern. Afternoon Tea truly shines with custom tableware and china, a tea list with worldly depth, and of course, a bit of Eloise too. Pastry Chef Matthew Lambie creates unique dessert experiences that effortlessly combine both classic and modern elements, while staying true to the Palm Court grandeur. This elegant room marked with its stained glass dome and impressive height adds a touch of old New York to a very polished and modern sense of hospitality.

It was an amazing dining experience, which i will never forget! Kazi and the team were amazing, they made my birthday so special! My friend was blown away from the hospitality and the personnalité that the staff members provided to us!

The Champagne Teas was amazing, all the small bites that we had were fresh vibrant and very tasty, the scones were warm and fresh! I am not a fun of scones but these ones i could eat a dozen , so delicate ! The tea was endless !! Kazi was mixing our teas creating such a great balance between warm hearty and fruity notes!

I will come back soon ! Thank you for everything !

The setting is great however the service was a bit slow. Our server disappeared after he brought our tea and I had to ask multiple times random people for water refills and to get our check.

I was surprise in a bad way, very disappoint for a place that should be one of the most important hotel in NY, with the best service and the best food. Waiter that he was taking cutlery with the hands, without a tray, glasses and cups without trays... a disaster!!
Potatoes in my plate they were burnt, I asked for the eggs well done and one was runny and one was ok. Very disappointing!

Tea was expensive which is normal but the food was dryed out and tasteless It must have been prepared the day before. Cannot recommend the Tea at all. Although our stay at the Plaza Hotel was fabulous. Beautiful rooms. Great service. I highly recommend the hotel.

Such a wonderful experience! The food was incredible, the tea was the best I had ever had and the ambiance was just lovely. I told the server my daughter was turning 13 the following weekend and he presented her with a plate of lovely plate of macarons and sang to her. Such a kind gesture.

We took our daughter here for her first experience of afternoon tea. What a disappointment. I thought this tea would be the best in NYC but I was so wrong. The menus were dirty. My husbands menu has marks and writing inside it. The sandwiches and the pastries had very little flavor. I would not recommend tea here. Try another hotel or tea house.

The food was exceptional, the place and the ambiance perfect! But the service was so bad: the server didn't explain anything, was rushing us so badly! Something to improve, really, cause it turn a perfect experience into an ordinary experience and that is not what we were looking for!

I am in town for a hospital visit with my son staying at the Essex house and thought I would take him for a special dinner in the palm court. My husband and I usually sit at the bar to eat and enjoy wonderful cocktails and food and most especially enjoyable and pleasant bar hosts! I am so mad we didn’t do exactly that! Service to say the least was terrible.... not at all something you would find in an upscale establishment as the Plaza hotel in New York!! I was beyond disappointed! Never again!

Exceptional Service as you would expect.
Afternoon tea lived up to expectations and the team were very helpful in allowing us to move to an alternate day.
The selection was huge and we couldn’t finish the whole tea, although I did manage a second glass of champagne.

Be sure to let them know if the occasion is for a special birthday.

High tea was beautiful, you get a lot of food with it, however it wasn’t explained to me what each thing was (all other high teas I have been to they tell you what each dessert / sandwich is) Service was a little slow, took about 30-40mins once I ordered to get my tea etc. I was seated near the back where they collected plates so was a little awkward with staff looking over & then one of the staff on the phone swearing away about something, but I tried not to let this get to me but did think it was a little unprofessional. Overall it is expensive for what it is but a maybe a one time thing you do!

Came her to celebrate my birthday and it was lovely. The afternoon tea service was delicious, probably the best tea food i’ve tasted. Definitely on the pricier side for what you get. Would have like to seen at least unlimited mimosas/ or soft drinks included on menu.

Stunningly bad. We reserved brunch far in advance expecting a nice, civilized, leisurely meal. What we got was indifferent service with indifferent food in a cluttered noisy open room that once was famously beautiful. What a shame.
