“A very enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Came together with my Mom for a Groupon High-tea and Chocolate Fondue. The dining area impressed very much. Very cosy, elegant, modern. Very nice tables, ceiling, windows, flower baskets. At 2.30 pm on a Saturday there were may be only 3 or 4 tables full. There was a lady-pianist playing the most popular movie tunes - very enjoyable. Lots of parking, very conveniently located, literary behind Costco but in a secluded area of the street. Staff was very nice and friendly. there were minor things like almost lukewarm tea that was replaced by a hot steaming cup immediately on my request.Staff seemed to be shy, trying not to intrude too much i guess. Even though i wasn't asked whether i'd like my tea to be refilled or whether everything tasted well... - still nothing ruined the overall wunderfull experience. Pastry and sandwiches were fresh and tasty. I'd rather return here than ever go for an overpriced and overrated High Tea at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria. Well done! Thank you!

“Beautiful Place, but staff made it terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Came here with 4 girlfriends for a groupon high tea. Each of us came separately, none of us were greeted or seated, all had to find the table ourselves. The setting is beautiful and would be great for a party or private function. One of my girlfriends said she would like to come back with her husband for a date night. However, the service or lack or service that followed changed her mind by the end of the meal. The groupon was a deal $10.00/pp for each of us, and it was coffee or tea and finger sandwiches and sweets, and chocolate fondue at the end. The fondue was really bad and went to waste because none of us ate any of it, because the chocolate was poor quality it was marshmallows, bananas, and apples. Nothing spectacular. The servers didn't explain any assortment of pastries or sandwiches to us, and the tea was only black tea, no variety. There are so many places to have high tea in the city now, and this was a joke. If service was good, would have gone back for dinner or lunch but service was terrible, they need to train their servers, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! I would not even go there with a groupon or coupon if given one. Too many great places in Richmond, I wouldn't waste my time at this place.
