    I asked if I could get the wooden trays like in the advertisement pictures. They say yes and they bring out the regular white dish trays with the reason that they’re too busy so they run out of those, and all the wooden trays are dirty. I came here because I like the set up but it all messed up because of that. The pastries look ugly on the white dish set up. You can call me picky but I have been to all the top hotels in Toronto and this is the only time I’m being disappointed. Misleading advertisement. Won’t come back again.

    Loved it. My only small critique is that the piano, while a lovely addition to the ambiance, was quite loud. Food and service were excellent.

    We came to celebrate my daughter's 6th birthday and everyone exceeded our expectations! Everyone was so amazing and our daughter felt so special. My kids were gifted each a stuffed moose. We will definitely come back!

    Great service and ambience. Enjoyed the pianist. However the food was not that great. I would have appreciated tastier savoury options. Desserts were ok. All in all it was not worth the money. Scones were good though.

    The sweet are better than savoury. The mushroom Custard is too sour and the mushroom flavor was covered. Overall that it’s a good experience. There are pianist play piano in the lobby and the service is good. Hope to come again.

    Some confusion about whether we had booked for lunch or high tea prix fixe, but overall a very lovely. Splendid acoustics when the pianist began to play. Tea and dessert were highlights.
