It was raining so bad we could have used an ark. But we walked into The Secret Garden and forgot about the rain. We had reservations for the Royal Tea. Wow! We chose our tea (and I'm particular about my tea--I brew it using loose leaf tea) and then the magic began. A cup of the most delicious soup. Then... More

The Secret Garden was such a treat! I brought my mom and my daughter for lunch. It was our first visit. We called ahead to make sure that we did not need a reservation. We did not, however during the height of summer I would have to think that you would. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. First of all... More

Restaurant was decorated for the holidays so very pretty. For those wanting to look the part of A lady who lunches, they have many hats you can waer while eating. Nice idea especially for... More

I am a tea snob. I love my tea and brew it from loose leaf tea every day. When in Port Jefferson for a day trip with a friend, we passed The Secret Garden and we decided to stop here for dessert after walking around town a bit. I'm so glad we did. The service was excellent, the tea sublime.... More

Attended their High Tea -- everything was excellent from the soup, scones, Tea Sandwiches and desserts. Highly recommend going here -- you can even dress in High Tea fashion -- they have hats, etc. there for you.
