Two E Bar and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
I️ took my aunt to afternoon tea for her birthday. We have gone to tea many times and thought the Pierre did a wonderful job. The food was excellent. The scones were beyond delicious as were the pastries. We did the unlimited champagne which was unbelievable. If you are looking for a great afternoon tea experience I️ would highly recommend trying the Pierre.
I've done Afternoon Tea several times in several different places. While the food, tea and service at The Plaza were excellent, the room was disappointing. It is a simple room but without the beautiful elegance of the Palm Court, for example. Again, the tea, sandwiches, and pastries were beautifully prepared. We had a lovely time.
We arrived early but the staff was very accommodating and seated our party of 5. Food was fresh and appealing to the eye. Wines by the glass were limited compared to the extensive cocktail menu. We didn't have high tea but the food items with tea looked amazing!
Afternoon Tea at the Pierre. I love having tea at the Pierre. I have gone there with my husband and with girlfriends. It's a relaxing and happy place to be. The service was fantastic. As soon as you are seated, the waiter comes to your table and explains everything you need to know. They were welcoming and inviting. There were many varied selections of teas such as the dependable Earl Grey to an updated blended tea with five different favors such as mango, papaya and others that I, at this time don't recall. that doesn't matter, what matters is that the blend was aromatic and very tasty. There were delicious sandwiches, mouth melting scones. The cookies and cakes were also yummy.
We have been to the Pierre Hotel's tea several times in the past. We enjoyed the ambiance and tea so decided to return for a special occasion. It turned out to be a hugh mistake. First, the tables which were originally covered with beautiful linen we're bare wood. Thinking Mc Donald's. Secondly, the savory sandwiches which were quite elegant before were below ordinary. Stale bread and old, cold, items covered them. The sweet items were obviously store purchased most likely -at a mediocre bakery. This was a discount tea service dressed up as a real English tea.
In all, a terrible disappointment that cost $200 with flat champagne.
A waste of money and time. Go somewhere else if you want elegance and a real English tea.
Service was great and the tea was nice. But the space wasn't one I'd seek out again or recommend. It has no natural light and was very brightly lit with "cold" white light. It was physically cold too - we both had to put jackets on. The opposite of cozy, unfortunately.
I came here from San Francisco for a rare opportunity to spend some time with my family members. We had a nice elegant afternoon tea here until a crowd of noisy business people came in as part of their event. They drowned out our conversation completely. The group event shouldn't have been held where other customers were there for quiet elegant get together. This was bad planning by the hotel and ruined our rare and precious family get together. If I knew about this event beforehand, I would have chosen a different venue.
My sister and I went here to have afternoon tea. I normally go to the Mandarin, but they closed down so we tried here instead. The bar is a bit hard to find, but the hotel staff are very courteous and pointed us in the right direction. The room is very nice and elegant, and the food selection is delicious and plentiful. The both of us really enjoyed their tea selection and their scones. Would recommend if you're looking for a quiet space with a nice ambiance to have tea with a friend or two.
My fiancé and I had went two the Pierre this Sunday for the tea for two I found on Groupon. It was exquisite. The waiter bright was so kind and made great recommendations for tea. My favorite was Pierre blend. It taste like chai tea. My fiancé had the tropical blend tea it tasted good too. The types of sandwiches and pastries were delicious. I loved them all. The ambiance was dim and the music was soft. I would absolutely recommend this to everyone. By the way there is plenty of food for two people. We were very full once we got through the the savory foods and took the desserts home with us. I filled up a lot on tea. Overall outstanding experience.
Everything is good. Afternoon tea is appropriate in portion, look nice and tastes good. I love the afternoon tea. It is good for friend gathering birthday and special occasions. Environment is clean, elegant and quiet. Customer service is great, they come a few times to make sure I am fine w everything, explain patiently when I questioned about tea selections.
Our expectations were high for afternoon tea at the Pierre. The hotel is beautiful, but strangely the lounge/tea room was bland, monochromatic with an odd mixture of antique wall mouldings framing pallid geonetrics. The chairs were quite worn and not very comfortable. The waiter was friendly and helpful when he was flagged down but did not revisit the table to ask what was needed. It was quite noisy and a little hard to converse. The teas were very good, but hot water was poured halfway into the emptied pot to make more tea, which was weak. The tea treats were heavy on sweets, so much so that we all got sugar headaches! The savory items were good, not great, although the mini lobster roll was tasty. The cost, with tax and tip was $84, which was overpriced for the ambiance, service and food quality.
Highly recommend the afternoon tea. Wonderful selection of teas. Perfect tea sandwiches. Accommodated vegetarian options only. The scones were perfect -buttery, light and moist. Generous amounts of lemon curd, raspberry jam and clotted cream were provided. Delicate fruit tarts, cookies, and other yummy treats capped off this lovely tea experience. We make a point of having tea at the Pierre every couple of years. Already looking forward to our next time there.
