    Service was excellent and staff made sure we took pictures. Tea was delicious however the food was disappointing. The Ballantyne is a beautiful hotel but charging almost $50 pp plus 23% service fee is overpriced for what it was

    Wonderful Bridgerton Tea Experience! We loved the theme, decor, and attire. The waiters were dressed in Regency attire and all the guests wore Regal and Regency themed outfits. I would highly recommend going for a themed afternoon tea event.

    Overall it was an enjoyable one time experience but price was a joke. They hide a 24% service charge that made it absurdly over-priced.
