    the room is right behind the front desk - it is cold in the winter the wind from the front door makes it uncomfortable - there was a fireplace but it blew out. There should be a separate dedicated room. The tea was okay. The vegan options were reasonable - regular options were nice. Service was delayed - not sure if the waitress was late for her shift and other servers were not willing to assist - but we waited for 20 minutes. When she came - she was very good - accommodating. The complimentary prosecco was served in a small glass - wasn't worth it considering the cost of the high tea. I won't go back.

    One of the best afternoon teas I’ve been to! The servers were absolutely amazing and very understanding about a last minute cancellation to our party. The food was incredible and the ambience was so cozy and warm (loved sitting beside the fireplace). We will 100% be back again. We were also given a tea sample to bring home which I’ve never had anywhere else 😊.

    Service not professional at all. Food selection wasn’t good. Very poor choice. Scones were very hard. Tea selection was limited. I asked for milk and never got it. One person was allergic to shellfish. So instead of making for him another type of sandwich they just doubled down on the same one. The value for the money is not worth it. Very expensive. We will never come back.

    Me and my wife visited on Feb 18 for a Hi Tea. Ambience is normal, it doesn't appeal like sitting in a 4* hotel. Ambience is average, food was just average. It was not fresh and even scones were cold. The seating was very bad and Chairs are very poorly designed it gave me a back pain. And it is NOT value for money after spending $250. Staff was not as professional and experienced to serve Hi Tea. It was like students or new immigrants on training. I would NOT recommend to anyone going there for Hi Tea.

    Lovely seating arrangement as well as staff who were for the most part attentive and informative. Went for high tea but it fell on the Chinese lunar new year so the menu was changed thematically as the food would reflect. However it feel all the way flat and I don’t believe the menu was well thought through and executed. Mainly just for the savoury options.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary here with the afternoon High Tea. It was a very unique afternoon date experience. Good off menu vegetarian options and desserts.

    We went for the afternoon tea and the service was excellent and food was delicious. The concept of only one tea per person was new as we have had the pleasure of enjoying afternoon tea’s at many other places including the Ritz in London and it’s normal to dry different teas. On top of that, the tea bag was not changed and they kept on pouring hot water on top of the same one tea bag, so the taste after the first pour was not the same.

    Great service, but wish we had some tables. Some of the food was great, some were just ok.

    This was not my first time at the Astor Lounge for Afternoon Tea. It was disappointing compared to previous experiences. The tea and prosecco were great as usual (Sloane Teas are my favourite). However, the sandwiches (my favourite part of Afternoon Tea) were disappointing. The cold 'white toast' base of two (or three) of the bites were really uninspired. I am not a fan of foie gras so that addition to the menu did not impress me. I can't say any of the sandwiches were good. Even the mini croissant with crab didn't seem super fresh. Maybe all the sandwiches sat on a counter for a while before they were served, or maybe the chef was having an off day - I don't know what was wrong but overall the food was not up to the usual standards IMO. The sweets (my least favourite part of Afternoon Tea) were abundant as always. I only had a couple, the Canadian (maple!) Opera cake and I can't remember the other. I had my friend take the uneaten sweets home. At this price point I felt the Afternoon Tea was lacking. $95 per person, plus tax, plus tip = ~$260 and was definitely not worth it.
