    We were excited to come out for a Mother's Day brunch, last time we were there we got offered the high tea despite being a bit early for it and when I asked the server was a bit rude with her answer. Then when we asked to see a drink menu (which we had last time) the server informed us that the drink menu was only for dinner time and when I ask why and explained that we had one last time we came for brunch there was no proper answer. Once everyone who was there for high tea came our server barely came to our table, we received the wrong wings but after 30min we got the right kind, one of us asked for no ginger and had ginger still (it's a food sensitivity), we also asked for a side of mayo for something and that didn't come out for the very over cooked fries. Overall the service was below sub par, and the food was also sub par. Very disappointing considering we had a wonderful experience last time.

    The Afternoon Tea was lovely! There was live music, the food was delicious and there was a variety of teas to choose from. Service was a *tiny* bit slow but there was only one staff member to tend to the multiple tables. She never stopped moving though!! I’m definitely going to bring friends by for this experience!

    The pianist was very talented and played many favorites of my aunt. The noise is a bit high for conversation if seated near a boisterous party. The food was good but some elements were too dry (cucumber sandwiches, raspberry financier), too heavy (black sesame waffles were thick, perhaps blini would be better?). Server Raquel went out of her way to make the occasion (a birthday) memorable, offering to take photos, bringing a birthday dessert plate. Overall, a nice afternoon tea, with a good amount of food. I remain a little shocked at the price.

    We went in but no one greeted us. We sat ourselves in the right corner cross the bar. The 2 girls working didn’t not come over even after seeing us sit down. We watched One of the girls working leave and maybe her shifted ended. We still waited about 20 mins hoping the other girl working could serve us but nope. We then decided to leave from the exit door. On the way out I asked the girl if we the manager was in but was told he/she is probably upstairs and I could leave my contact info. I told the girl I had reservations but she didn’t bother to ask if we would like to order anything.

    The service was sub par we were not addressed until 10-15 minutes after arrival. After we ordered the server did not come back to the table to check on us, if she had we would have ordered a cocktail, or even asked for a refill on the hot water for the tea pots. The taste of the food was good/average. The bread for the sandwiches was dry as if sitting out exposed to air for a long period of time. This did not give the food a ‘fresh’ appeal. The gentleman playing the piano was a nice touch, and set a nice ambiance for a Saturday afternoon.For 65$/person I would recommend an alternate destination for a high tea experience.

    We went to Prologue Cafe for high tea. There were a few booking mishaps on our end due to weather and they accommodated us in spite of our changing numbers. The service was smooth, polite, but inobtrusive. The tea delights were inventive, beautifully presented and very tasty. The only draw back was that we were in a corner and perhaps due to the acoustics of this position, the piano playing, which was excellent, made it difficult to hear the people across the table. And the bathrooms had no toilet paper. The High Tea itself, the ambience, the service, and the over all experience, I would recommend to everyone.

    Overall our experience was great! The food was delicious and the gentlemen playing the piano was a great touch. I was only disappointed that you were only allowed 1 tea per person and the service was just okay. I would still go back.

    Fun “Wilde about tea” experience. Piano was a bit too loud for easy conversation, but other than that, it was a great experience.
