Went after Mass on Sunday at St. Patricks. Very elegant and beautiful with great service. Yes it is a little slow, intentionally. Not to be rushed but enjoyed. Food was awesome. Of course it's expensive but worth it for a nice meal. Below in the Shops area is a food court with other treats for later, had a snack there... More

I went in with high expectations. I had spent way too much time researching where to go with my husband for afternoon tea while visiting NYC. Though other places had higher ratings, I still chose this one, mainly because it was at the Palm Court, and I'm a sucker for old elegance. We had reservations for 2:30 pm. We were... More

I recently had Tea at the Plaza with my daughter and granddaughter. For children, the tea is the "Eloise Tea". Her little tea tray had a grilled cheese sandwich, PB&J and cucumber. The sandwiches were fine. She had 2 scones (which she didn't like - I thought they were the best thing on the tray!). The desserts included little cookies,... More

We spent our first ever Christmas in NY and chose the Palm Court to celebrate as a family of 5. We've had tea at Fortnums and the Ritz but this experience was fabulous. The quality of service and the bygone era of the Palm Court allowed us to feel like we'd entered a Gatsby movie. The delicacy of the flavours... More

Tea at the Plaza hotel was a wonderful experience. They sure know how to make a great brew of English tea. Sandwiches were all delicious and everything looked absolutely adorable. The whole event was very prim and proper - fun thing to do with a group of girls. I wouldn't recommend it for girls under the age of 4-5 -... More

The interior is attractive but to my taste more designed for pretentious elegance than charm. A group of six adults had brunch and nobody commented on their food, certainly not that it was good despite a variety of menu selections having been ordered. The restaurant was about half full when we arrived and when we left so space was not... More

My family and I tried to have a drink and a snack at the Palm Court but were told we were not welcome as we were not staying at the Plaza. Thankfully, there are many places to spend your money at in New York City and we were welcomed with open arms at the St. Regis. The St. Regis is... More
