    High tea sandwiches not as good as previous visit; bread was dry in many instances. Needed more frequent tea water refreshed and even additional tea. At price charged this should be an automatic offering by serving staff.

    The tea service was bland and the actual food and pastry options were very dry. The wait staff could not be bothered to check in. The Ritz in different locations usually does much better at their high tea offerings.

    Great overall. Great service, staff is friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable, highest quality food we’ve tasted in a long while in GTA, cocktail menue is amazing. Few minor details, just some room for improvement as this is a high end establishment: drinks like Spanish coffee coming in a regular coffee cup, there were no problem with its taste, is a faux pas for Ritz Carlton. Also, the restaurant ran out of Upside Down apple cake, the severs had no idea until the time they had to check with the kitchen when fulfilling the order.

    I had booked the Afternoon High Tea to celebrate a good friends birthday. The last few times we celebrated at the Ritz, we were delighted. There was a Great Gatsby theme and all of the wait staff wore uniforms with long pearls to keep in the spirit of the theme. The entire restaurant was filled with people enjoying their High Tea. This time, there was no theme. The Epoch was filled with random people sitting at the bar and regular participants enjoying a meal. It was not the High Tea experience we were expecting and we were disappointed. We won't be booking again.

The attendants at Epoch were very attentive and accommodating to our party with allergies. I would love to come back on an afternoon date or a girlfriend get together.

    All in all it was pleasant but the value wasn’t really there and we were on a time limit of an hour and a half which seemed rushed (and we were rushed to pay and leave). Staff were pleasant and no complaints on food though.

    The high tea was Ok. Nothing great. Had better at King Edward and Casa Loma. Was told at the beginning that we had 90 minutes and then had to leave. It felt rude. Food was good. Not enough clotted cream. Because the food was brought in there was no opportunity to get a bit more cream. It was enjoyable but that's about it.

    We visited Epoch Bar & Kitchen Terrace for afternoon tea with family for a birthday. When I arrived there was no one at the hostess desk but I saw my party across the room and made my way to them. The server had already dropped off the tea sample chest and then we waited at least 15 minutes for him to return. He was very nice but maybe they were short staffed as after the tea and food were delivered he did not return to check on us for a very long time and one of us had run out of hot water. The food was good and the tea was excellent. I don’t know why they ask if there is a special occasion, no one said a word about the birthday. The ambiance was okay, we were seated in the bar area and the bar was very busy with afternoon drinkers so it was a little loud. I thought it would be a more intimate experience as other hotel teas have been in the past. Overall we enjoyed ourselves but there is quite a bit of room for improvement on the service side and the ambiance was just okay.

    We had a truly memorable experience here. Yes it was expensive. Vietnamese fried chicken was the best ever, coconut shrimp was excellent, the cocktails were top shelf. Sea bass was tasty and fresh. Gem salad and rapini were ok but not on par with the rest of the fantastic meal. Overall the meal was creative and fun to eat and share. This is a great spot to take special people.

    WHAT A TREAT! This is the best high tea we've experienced in Toronto. The hosts were amazing and offered us coat check with a smile, the servers are well trained and knowledgeable. Service is prompt and attentive. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the background music. Very interesting tea selection and the food was delish. The stars of the show were the scones!!
