Chestnut soup was just too good, carrot salad was excellent and the sole as the entree was a dinner to remember.
But there is nothing that surpasses the service that evening. Sommelier spent a lot of time with us to select the right wine and suggested an excellent wine with a reasonable price.

I went to the Peninsula Hotel with my Red Hat sisters. We enjoyed the Afternoon Tea and lunched on little sandwiches,like the lobster sandwich and the delightful smoked salmon ,turkey salad and truffle egg salad sandwiches,to mention a few .
I chose the African Amber tea and what a surprise! I had my own personal teapot .And, oh,the desserts! Omg...what treats awaited me!
The experience reminded of me of a scene from the Downton Abbey series! What fun for an Anglophile!
I will return!!!

In this lushly adorned room, especially during holidays the food is superb. A vast array of flavors to compliment the hungry guest. Service is outstanding, ask for Ruben, he;s the best. The views subtle, feels like a movie set, slick and contemporary yet comfortable. The lobster mash potato, incredibly tasty. Wonderful afternoon teas with live trio with cellist. Quite memorable.
