This was my third time enjoying the fabulous High Tea at the Lowell Hotel in the Pembroke room. Each time I brought a different friend or family member & they keep mentioning how much they love it there. The hotel is a beautiful English boutique style. The personal service starts as they open the front door for you all the way until you leave. The Pembroke room is very quaint & never crowded during the week. The weekend brings in a bigger crowd although it appears that they can only accommodate 30- 40 people. They have a large selection of teas & they will double up on the scones. With no extra charge. They accommodated my guest & I as it was Friday during Lent ( meatless day) by giving us an extra mini lobster roll. They served an array of delicious goodies along with the mini sandwiches, jam, lemon curd (mmm so good) & clotted crime. Waiter also brought warm milk if you like it in your tea. Food is wonderful & they never rush you. We spent around 2hours or more. It’s a lovely place to spend an afternoon.

Beautiful place to celebrate a special occasion. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday with an Afternoon High Tea with Champagne. The food was pretty and delicious. The scones were hot, crispy on the outside deliciously moist on the inside. They came with Devonshire cream, lemon curd, strawberry jam and marmalade. The only disappointment was the lack of instagram worthy orange blossom decoration with the ordered tea as reported in an article. The teapot had a very generous amount of tea for 1 person! For her birthday, my daughter received a beautiful box of L.A.Burdick’s chocolates and we both were given another glass of champagne each. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I've tried almost all of the afternoon teas in New York. This is one of the best! Excellent service; they were able to accommodate one of party's dietary restrictions (no fish). Huge selection of teas and they were all delicious. Beautiful pastries. Tea is served in a lovely, quiet intimate room. One minor quibble - the scones were slightly more brown and dry than I like. Otherwise, perfect!

I thought I died and went to British heaven for afternoon tea. Exquisite surroundings, magnificent service and an amazing value. I never wanted to leave and will return as often as possible. After tea we had a cocktail in the intimate Lowell lobby before a roaring fire. It doesn't get better than this!

The staff were very attentive and pleasant. Having said that, the food was disappointing and wasn’t great if you are used to high end British Afternoon Tea. The bread used for the sandwiches was dry and the fillings were not tasty. You are given one scone (choice of plain, currant or blueberry) and I had the currant which wasn’t great. The cake selection sadly wasn’t much better. The hotel decor was tired and the restroom was in desperate need of renovation.

All in all, although the staff were lovely, I would not recommend.
