    I specifically wrote that I needed my meal to be gluten-free. I am in the process of getting diagnosed for Celiacs disease, but do not have confirmation yet. Despite writing this while reserving, confirming the day before arrival and also letting the waitress know, of course they just assumed that I ate gluten. The gluten-free food wasn't even separated from the rest. The person that brought the food was like so you don't have an intolerance so you should be fine with the regular scones right? It just felt like no one really cared. Honestly, the scones was what I was looking forward to the most and there weren't any. It would be one thing if I had made the reservations last minute, but they were done practically a month in advance. To "replace" the scones they brought me coffee macarons which is one of the few flavors that I can not stand and "gifted" me a chocolate bar. My friend that came with me only eats chicken otherwise no other meats or fish. Of course for her too we had to ask the staff to replace the salmon and turkey sandwiches. Normally, I'm not the type to be upset by things like thing, but considering how expensive the meal was I'm shocked that this is the level of service that is offered. Based on this experience, I would not come back. It's too bad since when I came the year prior and the service was amazing and the food was great. It's a shame that things have gone downhill. My waitress was great, but the kitchen messed up on MULTIPLE occasions. I didn't think it would be right to penalize or complain to her, but more should have been done to fix the situation than a mere chocolate bar and a couple of macarons. Too bad, it was the only place that I could think of going to in order to have afternoon tea that caters to gluten-free diets.

    A very opulent room to take you back in time. Service was spot-on!! Selection of ‘tea service’ was delicious and satisfying. A dress code would have been a nice addition as some like to get the full experience of an era past. But such are the times in a new Covid world. Overall, it was a beautiful & delightful experience!

    The food was excellent (and we had to take some of the desserts home, we were full after the scones despite not eating breakfast!) and the ambiance was lovely. The decor is stunning and even though you are near the entrance, you feel almost secluded and in good company. The waitresses (yes, more than one! Very attentive staff) came by multiple times and refilled our water and gave fantastic tea recommendations. I will be happy to come back!

    The overall experience at the Ritz for afternoon tea is nice, the staff are very friendly but quite slow. We waited approximately 25 minutes for our drinks to arrive and had to ask a couple of times for top ups of water. I think, for the afternoon tea service, they could have done with at least one more staff member on the floor. The food was ok, the scones were good but the sandwiches were very dry and felt like they had been sitting in the fridge for quite a few hours. The afternoon tea room is lovely, brightly lit, with a nice ambience. Overall the experience is nice, just not quite as high class as you might expect going to a branch of the Ritz Carlton.

    Overall, the food was good but we were surprised to be sitting in the bar area, not a dining room. Also, a family with a crying baby sat at the bar nearby which was distracting. The chairs were much too low so our hips and knees got sore. We would have liked to have stayed for longer but we couldn’t relax also because we couldn’t lean back in the couch-like chairs.
