This was our second visit. We went to this tea room shortly after it opened and did not have a very good experience. Parking can also be a real pain. However, they offered a Groupon so we thought we would try it again. The service was bumbling and unprofessional. We had a reservation but they had trouble finding it because... More

It's true - we arrived without a reservation and in shorts (it is Hawaii, and we stopped on a whim when we saw the place). However, the place still had plenty of empty tables, and it was mid-afternoon - i.e., prime afternoon tea time. We were asked what we wanted before we were seated. Actually, they looked at us funny,... More

Large group 20+: private rom. Nice Christmas ambiance and it is VERY girly so men keep out. But the food was awful. Cheddar broccoli soup was cheddar WATER with a couple teeny pieces of broccoli. UGH. The sandwiches were wonder bread--wheat and white--doghy crappola withBARELY anything IN them--all de-crusted and served on tiered trays. BUT TASTELESS. Vegi, Ham, and curried... More

We went by there after dinner at Assagio to buy some ice cream. They had a party going with tons of families and kids, seriously crazy. Nevertheless, they made the effort to serve us and got us ice cream. I was just amazed by the kindness.

If you are looking for a unique experience with the girls, there is nothing like tea at this place . They have great lunch too. The owners are wonderful and its a great experience you must try.

The Wedding Chai was very good. It was fun to dress up and have tea for a friend's birthday. Te place setting was nice.

You will pick this place because you love tea and for the ambiance first. You are buying an experience. The food is simple but good. The service was outstanding. It's an adorable place and very girly! Do not take your husband or boyfriend. This is also a great place for a baby shower.

This was only my second time attending a tea, and it was better than my first experience at another restaurant. The Victorian decor was charming, and I would go back just for the decor. I understand they change their decor for different holidays. They have a cute selection of hats that we could've worn during the tea, but we were... More

Well, besides the busboy, I was the only male in the restaurant. Wife had a Groupon and no one else to go with. I tried not feeling too out of place. Enjoyed the sandwiches and desserts. Not much of a tea-guy. Probably won't go back unless forced to by wife.
