"This was a late booking for Christmas day lunch, but a brilliant decision chosen at random. On arrival we were greeted in reception and directed to The Pembroke Room. Here, we were made very welcome and seated in a small, beautiful dining room. We had the option of an afternoon tea menu or a fixed three course menu. We opted for the latter which had a small but good choice of dishes for each course. The service was excellent, the food was lush and the atmosphere idyllic for a quiet but lovely Christmas day."

"We went for tea when it was listed by opentable as the #1 place to have afternoon tea in NYC (it is a pretty short list). Overall the tea and food were very good. Where they need work is the service. It took way too long for the waiter to show up and he kept disappearing for long stretches. The Pembroke Room is pretty small and it almost felt like the wait staff had other obligations in the hotel and would rush back to check in. If they could fix the service issue I would go back."

"My friend mentioned his tea at the Pembroke on FB and it looked so yummy in a gorgeous setting that I had to do it too. I thanked him profusely for the recommendation. It was the perfect in between Christmas and New Years place to go. It's festive but elegant. I went for the 54$ tea with a friend of mine and we swapped the sandwiches we didn't want and managed to still get quite enough food to last the whole night. The best part is that they give you gobs of jams and lemon curd and Clotted Cream so you can really pile it on and they even gave us seconds with the scones and refilled the lemon curd and Clotted cream that I had devoured.
The pot of tea is equal to 4 cups of tea and the waiter even recommended not to put in milk to get the full effect.
My nerves were all a jangle when I went there but after all the delicious bites to eat in such a comfy classy surrounding I was put in the best mood imaginable. I've already made up my mind that whenever I have company in town to take them there for a real treat.
There were very well-behaved kids there and a group of friends and even a Birthday so this is a destination setting.

"The Pembroke Room is a cozy dining salon on the second floor of a boutique hotel. The entry is through the hotel's tiny lobby. The desk staff greet you and direct you to a small elevator, which leads to a narrow hall, then to the small, ornate the dining room. We had breakfast on Xmas morning. There were just a few diners. Initially, the service was attentive, but after the meal was served, no server approached our table even once. The food was delicious and served in an elegant, traditional, tea time at Downton Abbey sort of way, but the atmosphere was relaxed. The table setting, plates, and silverware were very pretty. The quiet dining room was a refuge from the noise of Manhattan. This is a lovely, old fashioned restaurant for a special occasion. It was very expensive, at over $80 for breakfast for two. I would love to go there again someday."

"High tea is a charming way to spend an afternoon and an opportunity for an undemanding social event. The magic can easily be lost if any part of the event fails to live up to high standards. Fortunately High Tea at the Pembroke Room met all of our expectations. The décor is elegant, the service attentive and gracious, the tea choices are sophisticated, and the food, both sandwiches and pastries, were high quality. I highly recommend the experience."

"Have been here for high tea many times. Service is always exceptional. I really felt baked goods were only fair. Did not taste fresh. A little disappointing. Server Steven was exceptional as always.
I will still come back. But wanted to give balanced feedback

"We did afternoon tea for my wife's birthday and it was on very near par with some of the best afternoon teas we've done in London hotels. The food was terrific, the service attentive, impeccable and discreet. It was even a bit of a "man's tea" in that the waiter brought by extra scones for me! Well done all around!"

"The Lowell is one of New York's best kept secrets as a boutique hotel and The Pembroke Room is its grand old-world dining room. Beautifully appointed the ambiance relaxes visitors upon first entry and the menu helps focus guests on special preparations and daily specials that will delight without breaking the piggy bank. Evening three-course pre-fixe menus are at $56 with ample portions to make this a true treasure amongst New York's elite diners."

"I love the Lowell Hotel for High Tea! The room is beautiful, quiet and European elegant. Best High Tea served in NYC. Staff is wonderful, service is great. Only place to go for the real High Tea experience."

"Very pretty room in the delightful Lowell Hotel in the prestigious Upper East side. Attentive and pleasant service but for the high price tag one would expect exceptional and memorable quality. Sadly this was not the case due to the mediocre tasting scones and cakes. For half the price this may have been acceptable, but for $50+ per head, it just isn't good enough. One highlight was the delicious blackberry macaron. Unfortunately this was the only exception."

"Costs a lot but I found the food quite satisfactory, and the times I've been there it's been remarkably underpopulated and quiet (I can't attest to dinnertime). No view to speak of-- some might find the place a little gloomy but I thought the overall effect quite restful and have returned several times."

"This is afternoon tea the way it's meant to be done. A beautiful quiet and cozy room on the second floor of The Lowell is perfect for sitting down to a relaxing cup of tea.
The Pembrock Room feels like something out of a movie, wonderful early 1900's decor, comfortable chairs and the vintage mirror on all the walls is the perfect finishing touch.
The service was impressive, and everyone steps up to make sure you feel special. We never felt rushed, or hurried along. In fact we felt encouraged to take our time and enjoy.
The food! Start with the caviar if you can, it is well worth the cost and a great way balance out the sweetness that comes after.
The tea is exquisite, the sandwich and dessert tray is excellent and the scones were to die for.
This is the closest thing to afternoon tea in London I have ever had."

"Very quaint, small, elegant room on 2nd floor of Lowell. Good food and service. Just be sure you don't mind others hearing your conversations. Given size of room and low number of Patrons, the conversations freely travel. Not a big deal necessarily, just an observation."
