    My first time high tea experience and would highly recommend this location. Pleased that a second visit could be a different theme since they change every three months.

    The decor, the service, the food, all outstanding. My first time experiencing high tea and what a memorable event it was. Did not feel rushed. There was a lot of food! Had to have two doggy bags. The chocolate tree!! Whoever thought that up? Brilliant. Loved every minute.

    The tea room was decorated with many artificial cherry blossoms which created an ambiance of amazing beauty. The classic scone was the best I have ever eaten. The sandwich selection was delicious: it had spices used in creative ways. One flavor of tea is included. If you want another you must pay extra.

    There’s a strict 90 min limit which is quite rush for a close to $90 (w tax and tips) high tea experience. Everything is good until they kick you out with ur takeout boxes and bill in the middle of the high tea and started cleaning tables and vacuuming around you. Can’t really enjoy a full high tea in a 90 min setting. Would go somewhere else next time for a relaxing experience . Never been rushed for a high tea like this before.

    Incredible experience with the cherry blossom decor! The only thing was the lighting wasn’t optimal for taking pictures but maybe that’s the point to just enjoy the experience? The food was delicious and Japanese themed. Loved the classic macaron and scones though. Perfectly moist, crisp on the outside and warm. This is how a scone should taste always! The cherry rose tea was perfect and they made special accommodations for a member of our party who has multiple allergies. Everyone was a happy camper. Thank you to our server Wendy who was so thoughtful and accommodating.

    90 mins for a dining experience is very tight. We were being very obviously rushed out of the room before we had finished eating and before the 90 mins even lapsed, with staff coming back over and over again offering more boxes and bags to get us to leave. This was not a cheap experience and it was rude to be pushed out so quickly. This became the overall memory of the experience. Suggest allowing enough time between seatings for people to enjoy themselves.

    Noise level was unbearable. Bread on sandwiches was very stale. Japanese cuisine was not at all tasty, so we left most of the food and gave to someone else at home. Was not a child friendly menu at all for our grandchildren. We were all very disappointed. Stick to lovely English high tea finger sandwich fillings.

    The Tea room is stunning. Sadly we were late for reservations due to BC Ferry trouble and were unable to dine in the tearoom, we did have a lovely cup of tea in the tea room while we waited for our restaurant table. Much to our surprise and delight the management set us up in a booth just outside the tea room, decorated with a cherry blossom tree and other decor from the tea room and the highlight was they allowed us to have our afternoon tea right there at the booth. The food was delicious and well presented, the service was professional and warm. The staff went above and beyond for us and we would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone looking for a fantastic meal and a warm and friendly atmosphere. Thank you so much!

    Heard a lot about the Lunar New Year theme menu over social media, but we are VERY DISAPPOINTED as we tried. The pastries are too dried, the dough is way too dense, and the food either be too sweet or tasteless. Teas are so-so. Nothing special. The only thing that actually impress us is the decoration. Foods have nothing related to Lunar New Year at all.

    Usually Fairmont always surpasses my expectations, but this afternoon tea, decor is great, hidden in a corner bookcase entry to lower level and nice decorations throughout for Lunar new year theme. But the food was subpar. Huge 3 inch size scones, english cream was just mainly whipping cream. The variety of desserts was large, but macaroons were chewy, so not made on same day. For the price of $69 it is mainly for location. food definitely needs improvement.

    The service and tea was very good. I like last year’s Chinese New Year’s tea more. But overall it’s a nice place for afternoon tea and I will certainly go back.

    Went for the Lunar New Year afternoon tea, lovely atmosphere! My friend's birthday, and they surprised her with a gold flake dusted chocolate cupcake with raspberries and blueberries! I also have a shellfish allergy so they thoughtfully gave me substitute vegetarian options in my own basket. Service was friendly. The only thing is that the lighting is a little dark but it was very festive! Love the secret door entrance as well! Food was delicious, so filling. Took home lots of leftover desserts to savour slowly that evening!

    Fantastic experience and so reasonable. We had more than enough food and the three of us got to take treats home. Was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Our server was also stellar!

    We went for the Lunar New Year High Tea option, but sadly it was a bit underwhelming. Go and order their regular high tea menu for a better food experience.

    The tea place is hidden behind a bookcase, making the overall environment relatively private and providing a mysterious feeling. For the food, let me break it into 3 parts: The scone is soft inside and crunchy outside. It is one of the best I ever found. The butter has a light, sweet, and creamy taste, which makes the swallow easy enough even without tea. The plum sauce is also great, with same level of light sweet and a fresh plum sourness. The Chinese theme savory is okay... The ingredients or each component has been cook to express the ingredient quality. Yet, when combined.. I realize this is just an average-level dim sum you can find in any Chinese restaurant. The sweet.... too much sugar.... too much sugar... just too much sugar.... I cant taste anything except sugar.... P.S. shrimp egg tart is not acceptable... or I should call it shrimp flour tart..

    The food and ambiance was great! But it took 30 minutes for our high tea to come. It was odd since tables that had come in after us had received their order first. Would keep this in mind when coming here since you’re only allowed 90 minutes for your table. But the food was enjoyable and our server was kind!

    The decorations, theme, and ambience were pretty spectacular. The visual of the food was great. We were at the one table where the scones didn't arrive until later on. Food presentation was nice. The scones sizes were too big, it could be made a bit smaller. The sweets section, other than sugar, we couldn't really taste anything else. Especially the red bean and matcha opera cake. All we could taste was sugar, and VERY sweet Matcha (which shouldn't be!). The red bean layer had no red bean taste because of all the sugar contents. otherwise, very good attempt with this year's theme! I hope the check can taste and revise his own creations first before releasing his menu. We think the sweets section was overly sweet.
