    I love afternoon tea and this was a good experience. The tea and scones were great. The service was excellent. However, the tea sandwiches were only ok. It was also possible to easily hear the conversations from other tables and unfortunately our neighbors made me want to drive a for in my ear to avoid overhearing them. Still, it was a beautiful location and I love afternoon tea so I’d still recommend the visit.

    The server could have paid more attention to us by checking to see if we needed more hot water for our tea. They brought the dessert at the beginning of our tea consequently it melted before it was to be eaten (birthday chocolate). At $75.00 per person, dishes should have been cleared and clean brought out. We were never asked if we wanted anything more. The table next to us were 3 young women and one of they had a very loud annoying voice and did not stop babbling for 2 hours!!! Other than that we love the place.

    This was my third visit to the new tea room. I think I am getting used to the new space. Food is great. Service is good. But I still feel that warmth is the one trait in short supply. The rooms are too austere for my taste. And what distinguished the old tea room were the servers. They all felt like old friends. Times change, but maybe there could be a bit more chit-chat between staff and customers.

    The Tea Room could step up their game in the food department. Presentation is lovely and charming. However, the scones were very hard. I mean, hard, Sandwiches were tasty and well presented, but the bread was already too firm and crusty. The sweet selection is overly sweet and again, a bit stale. While the entire experience is lovely, food on it's own is not work the cost.

    The experience overall was lovely. The waiter was very friendly and made great connection. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was worth the price alone. My one complaint is that I booked an outdoor seat and was given an indoor seat. When I told them that I booked an outdoor seat I was told it would be an additional 20 minute wait despite there being several seats I could see that were available outside.

    Online reservations were booked for a long time, so our trip was a month past our birthdays. We had a lovely experience for the most part -- all the foods in the traditional tea menu were very good, could be a bit fresher (bread a bit dry). Our waiter was excellent, no one seemed rushed, which helps the ambience. Maybe I'm out of tune, but I'd prefer that children not be allowed in the tea rooms. We pay for a highly elegant experience and one loud, whiny kid can throw that off. The kids in our area weren't too bad but they distracted us.
