    Very disappointing reservation process. I made a reservation for 1030 afternoon tea on Open Table’s site. The instructions said to select EXPERIENCE which was not an option listed,therefore, I added a note in the special request/instructions box, stating the reservation was for Tea, as it was a special occasion for my husband. I only received one email confirmation. I then tried to call multiple times as the site suggested to verify our reservation, but couldn’t get through. Upon our arrival, we were told tea is not served until 1300. The pot our earl grey was brewed in had an insufficient sized spout, therefore, the loose leaf tea almost completely plugged the hole so much we didn’t even get leaves in the strainer. Whitby’s own granola mix in the açai bowl was stale. For a high end establishment, the experience was very disappointing with poorly trained staff. The waitress reached across our plates multiple times while serving. Never again.

    Poor value for price. Service person vaguely attentive and not well trained, reaching over guests rather than moving around table to serve guest more directly

    Lovely atmosphere and good service. We came for afternoon tea and the food was average. Expected a bit more for the cost but still had a lovely time.

    Lovely relaxing breakfast. Food is delicious. Crispy turkey bacon. Hash brown wedge presentation was unique and cooked to perfection. Crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. Food came out quickly yet a little bit of a wait to order. Nice ambiance. Eclectic decor. Definitely a nice start to the day.
