    Was not really the experience we were expecting. Having had high tea at a few different locations in Toronto, we were expecting something...MORE....The place was nice, our server was very nice, but the whole experience was actually lacking. For instance, there aren't a ton of tea options which is fine, but there is also no way to see samples of them (for instance some places have a loose tea case in which you can smell the different types of tea) Also when you get the tea, it comes in a small decanter that would typically hold enough for 2 small cups. The tea is in a bag so not loose which is fine, but say by your third cup of tea, the tea is more like a muddy water. Even though it was nowhere near full, we were seated immediately next to another couple (which turned out to be okay because they were very nice and we all compared notes). We just feel for the money it wasn't worth it as the experience was definitely lacking. We did think we would try the restaurant again for a regular meal and not high tea as there seemed to be some good options and we did like the actual ambiance over all. Are we nitpicking...YES, for the price the experience was lacking so the value wasn't there.

    Overpriced. Service was horrible, it felt like we were invisible to our server. Came for afternoon tea and found it to be very average. If you've ever been in England this won't really do it for you and what you get compared to the value is lacking. You're paying Ritz prices because of the name, not the experience. Skip and look elsewhere.

    Very disappointing We arrived and we sat adjacent to a room with a billiard table It felt uncomfortable in the setting for high tea We were seated and then another couple was seated next The tea was served and the food didn’t arrive until much later What did the waiter do? He served the other party first that arrived after us Our tea was finished by the time the food arrived They put the food on a stool at the ritz Carleton talk about tacky. What a joke! See the photo attached The waiter said there’s endless tea but then the food was finished and he was nowhere to be found You had to take the food by the hand and this proves difficult with the dessert which fell apart It was really a bad experience except for the manager who came and tried to smooth things out and he was a true gentleman and professional

    Excellent decor, good drinks. But we made a dinner reservation and this place is set up as a bar - not well suited to a comfortable dinner while seated on couches around tiny tables. Food was good but extremely expensive for what is otherwise basic food (fried chicken, burgers, etc).

    I thought my reservation was for the terrace, and it was for the indoor restaurant so check carefully when you book. When I arrive I explained this and was told there was no room on the terrace, there were no choices but to eat indoors. As I ate my amazing meal, I sat looking at the almost empty terrace for the duration. I also questioned the need for open table, when the reservation didn't get me what I wanted, and other people without reservations were seated with no problem. The food and actual service are amazing! Just make sure your reservation says terrace.

    Loved the terrace, and the service. The cocktails were excellent but expensive. The hamburger was great. The fries were not very good. The lobster sandwich and the roasted cauliflower were just ok. Overall the best part of lunch was the ambiance. A good place for lunch if price is no issue.

    Lobster roll was disappointing for $40 as it had way to much sauce/mayonnaise. Lobster meat was grainy. The rest of the food was good and quality. What made up for the terrible lobster roll was the amazing service from the servers. Cocktails are pricey but very good and unique. Will definitely come back to try other drinks.

    beautiful setting. delicous cocktails. fantastic service both from bartenders and waitstaff. however, $28 CAD for a burger that you can't choose the temp on? Oof. Visit there for a cocktail, go elsewhere for dinner.

    From start to finish it was great. This restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Ritz hotel. If you’re visiting the restaurant, the valet parking is only 30 dollars and it’s seamless. Drop off your car, walk to the back of the lobby and you’re there. The ambiance is sweet and the hosts were great. The service was very good and our experience was well worth it (for our anniversary). No far walking from a far parking… just drop your car off, it’s worth it.

    I am British and had high expectations as what was touted to be the best afternoon tea experience in Toronto. Unfortunately I would describe my experience as average at best. The scones were ok. They were tasty but had been rolled out too thin and were too flat and didn’t have the right texture. They were served with jam that was too runny and whipped cream and not clotted cream. The sandwiches were ok, the bread was good but the sandwiches themselves did not leave a lasting impression. The desserts were the best part of the meal, however the avocado mousse was too savoury tasting. They had a good selection of teas. There was nothing spectacular or special about this high tea and I wouldn’t recommend it for someone who enjoys high teas and is looking for something special.

    Underwhelmed to be fair I love the hotel love the staff they are always on point The terrace tho not what I expected hotel 1 did a much better job when it comes to a plant and greenery theme. The focaccia was not what I’m use to very flat and no big air pockets more like a ciabatta bun but a bigger version. The other focaccias sounded good but the one with meat jalapeños and mozzarella don’t get it. The cheese is not melted or cold it’s like somebody stopped the oven midway and just pulled it out too soon. The drinks were yummy and creative and as expected 20-25 a drink. Our server was great very polite and welcoming. Just not what we expected in fact we were there for dinner and after the focaccia bread we decided to leave and go somewhere else. I will add people were having afternoon tea inside and that looked really cute if u are a high tea person.

    Afternoon tea was such a great experience. Our waitress was very knowledgable and gave us great suggestions. They were really nice to substitute couple of ingredients because of dietary restrictions. The atmosphere was absolutely stunning and very great for small groups. Portion size were surprisingly perfect looking at it it looks like there’s not enough food but once you’re done 75% of it you’re already very full. Offered a variety of different sandwiches and desserts. They were also quick to clean out the table if there was any lingering plates or unused Utensils. I would take a friend out to do afternoon tea again at this location.

    Our server was excellent! But we made the reservation for patio and were told, once we got there, that it was first come first serve. Probably shouldn't let us select an option of patio if you aren't going to let us sit outside
