It's so unnecessary to go for one of the expensive teas at the big hotels. This place serves a beautiful, refined tea in a more intimate setting and at a more affordable cost. The sweets and savouries were perfect, and the service was impeccable. We met the owner, who took the time to have a conversation with us over a... More

My daughter treated me to tea at King's Carriage House - what a treat! The teapots are quaint and wonderful. The ambience was lovely - an intimate manor house, as was the service. We were well taken care of. The chicken salad on cranberry bread was my favorite, followed by the smoked salmon pinwheels. The chocolate dipped strawberries (dark chocolate!)... More

New York City is full of the world's greatest restaurants, from food to ambiance to service to owners to location. I travel the world and eat out all the time. One of my all time favorites is the absolutely delightful and exquisite King's Carriage House. Be it lunch, brunch, afternoon tea, dinner or a private event like a bridal party,... More

This is a lovely spot in my neighborhood . I always wanted to go and finally did and what we found out that it was a lovely place, with okay food with pretty high prices. We only went for after dinner refreshments coffee and dessert but thought that even for the area they were high priced and somewhat inflexible with... More

The menu is prix fixe at $49.95 with a few supplements. At that price you get an app, entree and desert. That is quite a deal in NYC considering what you get and how you get it. The decor is beautiful, set in a century's old carriage house, it exudes old English nobility. Even the tea pots are modeled after... More

Had dinner here with my husband last week. We had a Groupon. I had the Filet Mignon entrée and he had the lamb. Everything was wonderful including the appetizers and the desserts. We will definitely return in the future. It is very small downstairs, where we were seated. There may be space upstairs as well.

I went for Afternoon Tea with my friend when visiting New York. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and attentive. The setting is exquisite. It is great value compared to the more expensive afternoon teas served at other central hotels. Make sure you have the champagne afternoon tea, a bargain for only an extra $10. Well... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
