Tea - not what we expected

The table setting was very pretty. Our server, Cindy, was perfect. Scones were delightful. We really enjoyed the asparagus sandwiches - the rest if the food items were just ok. The harpist was not in attendance when we were there. The most distracting and disappointing aspect was the bar... read more

In a real afternoon tea city, this is one of the upscale establishments that at least tries to accommodate celiacs. Bravo. However, the selection of tasty treats presented disappointed: jello, a very tiny piece of chocolate, a muffin with peace preserve, a few tiny uninspired sandwiches. It all left me feeling frustrated. Come on Fairmont. Try harder. There are more... More

My girlfriend & I spent a couple of hours of pure bliss just sipping tea and eating delicious petite sandwiches & cakes. The service was attentive and not once did I feel like I was being pushed out of the door. The atmosphere was quiet, comfortable and you felt totally at home. It was a nice way to finish up... More

It was ok. My partner wanted to do it. $35 each for tea and little sandwiches was steep. The scones and cream were quite good and eclairs were wonderful. Rest was just ok. Decaf tea options - other than herbal - would have been nice.

Scones and brie croissant - excellent! Tea - excellent. Setting and comfy couches excellent. Other savory items - neah. Other sweet items - okay. Service slow and not really good at all, we had a few servers.

If you enjoy afternoon tea, the Tea at the Castle won't disappoint. We've been here several times and their service is consistent. I'm glad they finally put the prices of the champagne on the menu. The previous visit, we were rather surprised that the 3 flutes of champagne were $28 each. This time they have a menu and you have... More

We came for a coffee and some desert and it had to be the worst experience I have ever had for the pricing they are putting forth. First of all, the server was bored out of her mind with zero personality. The food was so bad we ended up sending it back. The coffee was weak and it was just... More
