“Poor customer service, mediocre / overpriced food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Staff is not very friendly, not eager to please customers at all. Food is okay, but very expensive for what it is. We would never return.

“low value on high tea”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2011

Went to Lyric Cafe in 2010 for high tea and had a great tme with good food. Went again this week and we got cookies right out of the box, weak fruity tea, a few tea sandwiches;cucumber, salmon and goat cheese were ok. It cost $25 without tip and it wasn't worth it. Also I made a reservation two-three weeks in advance and they were not remotely ready for us to arrive and the service wasn't good either. Needless to say we will not be going back.
