Nous y étions pour souligner le quarantième anniversaire de naissance à une copine. L'ambiance est agréable, le mobilier très confortable et le service est excellent. Les pâtisseries et les scones étaient absolument divins !! J'aurais aimé une portion un peu plus grosse et d'avoir la possibilité d'avoir plus de thé. Par contre, j'ai été un peu déçue de me faire dire que je ne pouvais pas ajouter une personne à ma réservation car il n'y avait "plus de places" alors que c'était pratiquement vide quand nous sommes arrivés (et c'est resté ainsi pour le temps de notre réservation) Pour conclure, je suis très satisfaite d'avoir foulé le plancher du Ritz, c'est absolument magnifique. Les employés sont tous très respectueux et serviable. Je recommande chaudement l'expérience !

It was a good experience, thanks to the beautiful Palm Court decor and great service, but I expected more from the chefs at the Four Seasons. The sandwiches were tiny and didn’t have much flavour. The scones were decent but also quite small. The desserts were nice, but pretty standard. So worth going for the experience, but don’t expect to be wowed by the food.

I loved the fact that the tables had space between them, we could talk without being overheard or without overhearing others conversations. Thank you for a fabulous experience!

I don't even know if that exists? We were asked if we had any allergies. I was expecting a garden within a luxurious courtyard. Instead the tea was in an open room upon entering the hotel. The waitress was friendly and helpful.

We forgot to mention it when we ordered, but they changed our sandwiches without hesitation. I will definitely recommend.

We go for afternoon tea for the scones. They were tiny, as was the amount of cream that came with them (also not the quintessential clotted cream! ). Will will keep on looking for a more authentic afternoon tea experience in Montreal!
