    The Langham is a beautiful place to have tea. I took my girlfriend for her birthday and she loved it. My one complaint was that the scones were not delicious. They were a little hard as if the dough had been kneaded too long and they were cold. I have been hosting teas for so many years and the scones should be the star of the meal. The sandwiches were nice, I wanted more. The desserts were good , some better than others.

    Wonderful experience. The venue is beautiful, the food and service are exceptional. We took a friend for his birthday and the harpist played happy birthday and our server brought out a special dessert with a candle. What a lovely extra touch.

    Going on a Thursday was good, the place was not crowded and very quiet. I requested a window seat and was sat at window table. Despite so few tables, the server still had difficulty getting around to pour tea or provide creamer. They obliged when we asked to have tea pots next to us so that we can pour our own tea. The 3 tiers of food and dessert was better than expected. I like that each dessert had an edible flower! The place was very pleasant with live piano music.

    The Lobby Lounge at the Langham in Pasadena is lovely, a truly wonderful setting for afternoon tea. The scones were fresh and tasty. The tea sandwiches were unique, with a variety of options, including gluten free and vegan. And the dessert pastries were delicious. The service was outstanding, and our tea cups were filled constantly. Plus, the grounds of the Langham are lovely.

    This experience used to be so special, but the last couple times I’ve gone it’s been such a disappointment. The service staff is overtaxed, so their attention to detail is poor. For example, they put your hot tea on a side table in order to save space on the main table. But they never came back to refill our cups, and after frustration set in from sipping cold tea, we got up to refill our own cups….several times! The food was also poor. The scones were not fresh, and very dry. They were also not warm. And they don’t provide clotted cream, or any cream for that matter (they only serve milk for the tea…and you have to request it; it’s not automatically on the table. And the “clotted cream” provided for the scones is just whipped cream). A few of the sandwiches were good, but the desserts were woefully subpar. In fact, my 2 guests and I shared a few of them and decided they just weren’t worth the calories, so I took most of them home for my teenage son. He also turned them down. Lastly, it was SO LOUD! Truly. We couldn’t hear one another at our table, and there were only three of us. At $79/head for “regular” tea and $99/head for the “Royal Tea” (a selection that includes a mimosa and some berries), cutting corners like this is unacceptable. I’ve been coming to this location for high tea since it was The Huntington Hotel, and my past few visits to the Langham have been woefully unacceptable. I’ll be moving my special occasion celebrations with friends to the new tea house at The Huntington Library.

    We had the royal afternoon tea. The champagne upgrade was well worth it. We enjoyed every minute of it, including the nice walk around the garden and the property. The luxurious and historic hotel setting is beautiful. The service is impeccable and friendly. Some of the items were delicious, but overall, I was overwhelmed with the tea sandwiches and assortments.

    Beautiful Hotel is a perfect setting for an afternoon tea. Not your typical afternoon tea but a modern menu and it was delicious. Professional, courteous and knowledgeable service too! Enjoyed my afternoon tea and will be back soon!
