    The high tea is too heavy on sweets. More small sandwiches, less sweet cakes would be preferred. Remember the scones are already sweet.

    We were there for the afternoon tea service. It was a great experience. Food is good and tea selection quite interesting. The service was good and friendly but the noise level… classic / orchestra music was way too loud. Overall awesome experience but quite pricy. I recommend it!

    Other than having wasps in the parlour area(too stressful) for me to eat there, the food and service was as expected for the establishment. I will return for more afternoon tea. ( luckily the hostess was nice enough to allow us to move to a different seating location, but maybe they should look into somehow removing them altogether).

    This will be the worst experience I’ve had for such a pricey afternoon tea I reserved as an “experience”. We were one of the first to arrive and stuck in a corner against the wall w/ the inside of the bar behind us and 3 cheap pedestal fans around us. I looked around and the entire space was empty and then saw multiple pairs and groups arrive all seated in all of the remainder beautifully set tables in the entire restaurant. Sweating the entire time, surround by cheap white pedestal fans, my friend who was visiting from out of town and I felt like we sitting in a roadside shack. Absolutely ruined my experience that I reserved ahead of time. Food was good and waitress was considerate of our dietary preferences but I will abs not forget how horrendous of a table and set up we were given for an afternoon tea that cost $75. No photos because it was embarrassing taking any because you saw the white pedestal fans from all sides.

    The food was good, location was beautiful and very convenient however the service was super slow. We were literally there for 2 hours finishing our meal. The waitress was very good and gave great recommendations and was efficient however the food just took a very long time to come out and I think they may have been understaffed. Nevertheless the steak was super tender and the dessert delicious (cream brûlée and flourless chocolate cake).

    Overall experience was beautiful and pleasant. We had 2-3 flies who were quiet interested in our food bothering us which became annoying. For the same price, my parents' experience at Windsor Arms was with more variety and items. That said, we were all full at the end. The quality of items was top notch. Delicate and thoughtful. I had a nut-allergy friendly tower and my dad had the diabetic friendly one. We had more sandwiches. I've had towers with items like smoke salmon, egg, etc. This one had a lamb paté, cucumber sandwich, smoked trout, strawberry sandwich. 2 scones, a plate of desserts. Now the desserts were stellar - beautiful and delicious. Too sweet for me even though I am not diabetic. Looked for lighter items or fruits even. The highlight was our server -- Nicole. She was the loveliest part of our experience, bringing us wonderfully prepared teas and creating a memorable birthday experience for my dad. Thank you and I would recommend to go for an experience. Not a repeat one for me though.

    The location is lovely. The decor is tasteful Takes some time to find staff but the service was quite friendly. The food is terrible. It’s substandard fare at exorbitant pricing. Chef needs to be fired honestly. I am a foodie and don’t mind splurging for good food but at $500 for a party of 4. I expect great tasting food. Everything was super bland. The only part of the meal I enjoyed was the crème brûlée. I would only come here for high tea not dinner.

    Beware - there was no air conditioning and it was extremely hot and humid in the restaurant. Everyone was sweating and extremely uncomfortable, and there were flies everywhere. For the cost, I would expect a bit more in terms of ambiance and comfort. Otherwise, the service was excellent, and the food/tea was tasty.

    The afternoon tea is such a lovely experience. The hostess was very attentive and observant. The sandwiches were very tasty. The little pastries delicious and we could get a box to take some home as they were too many to eat in one sitting. The room was quite hot by the end of the tea - I saw a couple of fans, so perhaps the air conditioning does not extend to that room - the lobby was cool. There was a two hour time limit, but that was more than enough for an enjoyable experience with good conversation.

    Quite dissapointed. It was our 40th anniversary dinner. The hostess mentioned it, not the server. What we were going to get, the filet mignon was not available. The plates were dropped by another server and had to ask who had what No pepper was offered we had to ask. The food was only okay. Not that we are looking for free handouts, but I dont think we have ever had an anniversary dinner where they don't make a little fuss. This was a big anniversary. Will not go back.
