    Ezzari was our waitperson. He was lovely and made us feel welcome and very attentive. We really appreciate accommodating special dietary requests, one vegetarian and one gluten free. Beautiful place

    My daughter and I agree that this high tea experience has now set the bar for what a high tea could be. The food was excellent and we loved the idea of flights to pair the food with the liquor. A memorable day!

    Amazing! I had the tenderloin and the lemon cheesecake and both were absolutely perfect. There was not a crumb left on my plate. Our server was lovely, the wine and cocktails were excellent, and it was such a beautiful space. Highly recommended!

    Lovely outdoor setting for our party of four. The Afternoon Tea was delicious as well as beautiful. Server allowed one of our diners (vegetarian but eats fish) to mix choices to have tuna and salmon sandwiches but not the chicken or pork. Hard to decide what my favorite was, quiche or scone or chicken salad. Wait, might have been trifle. Epic tea.
