Went to OMNI Victoria's Restaurant for afternoon tea and it was an awesome experience! The staff, food (sandwiches/desserts), and the tea was delicious. Attention to detail by their staff; management, service, and chefs are second to none. Definitely an experience you must try and will most likely repeat.

the waiter is nice. But there is no one care about us after the server finished his shift. We asked to add hot water for three times, finally we got someone to add water for us. Overall, there is a quite nice place to get together with friends.

It was a very disappointing experience. The sandwiches were very dry and the scones were not served warm. The clottted cream was cold.
The noise level was loud, ambience was not great.
Will not be going back

I organised this from England for my daughter and her husband to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. I arranged with the managements to pay for this on my card in advance they were made very welcome and had a most enjoyable afternoon tea.

Eventually...

We made reservations in advance and arrived on time. ( we were staying at the hotel celebrating our son and daughter in laws anniversary - they had been married at the hotel last year. We had treated our friends to breakfast after the wedding at this restaurant and remembered it to be decent if not rather aloof in its ambiance and service) We were seated promptly but then, we were ignored for at least 15 minutes. Eventually... my husband got up and spoke to the manager.
Our server - eventually - came to the table - he was polite and efficient. We ordered a la carte from the menu rather than the overpriced buffet.
Our food came - eventually...
(I ended up taking a pastry from the buffet because I was hungry and we had waited quite a long time. )
The food was good.
It was a decent experience overall, but not worth repeating.

We celebrated my birthday. I had the Chocolate Tea experience, but requested the vegetarian option for the savories. Omg! I LOVED LOVED LOVED the savories!!! If I could order seconds of that plate I would. As wonderful as the sweets were, my friends and I were REALLY enjoying the savories. We couldn’t stop talking about them whole time.

For the cost of the afternoon tea, a plate of 5 TINY sandwiches, a tiny shotglass of soup and a few sweets, not worth it the cost. The scones were cold, not even warm. I can't recommend anyone going for the afternoon tea. No value for the $49.00 per person.

Service was fantastic but the ambience is lacklustre. No music was playing. And there are no windows so they need to fill the white walls with colour, photos, paintings (there are beautiful paintings everywhere else in the hotel). This dining room felt like a "work in progress"

Some child/tween was at a table beside us unsupervised and was watching videos on her phone without ear buds. The noise was distracting and annoying. The server should have stopped her. Thankfully she left sooner than later. Still. King Eddy dining room as a baby sitter. What are people thinking.

We decided to do a family brunch at the Victoria restaurant. The food was tasty, the service was excellent (the wait staff were great p, they went the extra mile). The only thing that could of been better was to gave more dishes available (seafood maybe). The breakfast side was great.

Been coming here for years. Sadly, the shrimp seem to get smaller every time. It's a good buffet in a stunning room but a little overpriced. Nice for occasions like Mothers Day.

Second visit to Victoria's restaurant, the food is always fantastic. The service is bit slower and sometimes leave us behind. I guess this is because they are busy? Anyways, if you never been there, at least try one time. It is worth it.

I had asked a British-Canadian friend for a suggestion regarding afternoon tea. His family enjoys Victoria's at the King Eddy the most for classic afternoon tea, fair price and quiet, calm setting. The restaurant and the hotel itself is centrally located to Toronto's main business district and historic old Toronto.

There's a limited choice of tea but they're all very good. It's very good value for money, and overall I would recommend it to friends and I have! I went solo, after a friend cancelled but whether alone, a friend or a group or friends they're very accommodating. I'll return again!

Most tea places offer additional plates of sandwiches for no extra price. King Eddy doesn't do this.. Its 35 dollars per person... the tea was nice... but I left completely starving. We got per person 2 small scones, and 3 finger sandwiches.. Not a lot of food! Would NOT go back!

Everything was delicious, most notably the beef wellington, white wine steamed mussle, and tiramisu. Loved their coffee too. Our stomachs were happily full and sated.

We also enjoyed wonderful music performed by harpist Liane James.

The only down note was our server wasnt happy with his standard tip. No thank you no eye contact after....

Oh well, we had a swell time.

All food items were made in house and very fresh - standouts were the berry compote and scones (and I don't usually like scones). It's a lovely spot for tea and we had fun smelling the various teas from the 2 sample boxes.

Our server was quite knowledgeable and personable but the pacing of his service was a bit off rhythm to our party that day, to the point where 3 out of 5 party members noticed.

I find the lightening really old fashioned. And makes it feel less of an inviting place. It feels like going to a conference room in a basement

The quality of the Sunday brunch has diminished over the last few years. There used to be fresh oysters and crab claws, as well as lobster. Not any more. I guess it is just the sign of the economic times. The beef wellington is still as good as it used to be.
