A good place to kill time and see the goings-on in the 35th floor lobby. Oh they also serve light bites of peking duck?

Our hotel concierge booked a tea for us here for my birthday but something got lost in translation and when we arrived the hostess told us that the reservation was made for a lunch and not a tea. I was so disappointed because this was what I had chosen as my birthday 'activity' and it was our last hurrah before... More

This afternoon tea was different from what I'm used to in the UK - even the sandwiches were fancy! Very nice though, good value and filled us up well, we didn't need to eat again for the rest of the day. A great people watching place too and the views of Central Park are amazing.

I was so excited to have tea at the Mandarin Oriental but sadly it was just a disappointment. The views were amazing, it is a really great setting, the tea itself however was not good. The food was fine however it wasn't brought on one tier so we had to start with the scones which was a bit odd. Otherwise... More

The views from this lounge are probably unparalleled. The treetops of CP and the 5th Ave residential building across the way somehow created a soothing effect. I have been here a bunch of times for drinks, an app. Last week, I decided to have two business meetings there mid afternoon thinking it would be quiet. It was not at all.... More

Afternoon tea is always fun. The Mandarin does an excellent job. Great variety of food and teas. As good as the Plaza

The main attraction of the Lobby Lounge is the view over Central Park and the City. The stuff is professional but friendly and the service is impeccable. The food is as good as one can get in a Lobby Lounge, a near perfect imitation of British afternoon tea service is also on the menu. An excellent place to relax over... More

Everything about afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental was amazing. Superb service, excellent tea, scrumptious food, and a world-class view. A special occasion location or a place for intimate conversation--it will not disappoint.
