"i was not pleased with the sandwhiches and I wish there were less sweets and more savoury, I was also shocked that refills came at a charge as most high tea places in america has free refills,
the actual area is quite tiny, i would go back, but it wouldnt be my first choice. They did make me feel special on my birthday no doubt

"Experience was okay. For the price it's so tacky to have tea bags and to feel awkwardly rushed out at 2. 1.5 hours is not long enough for a leisurely tea, at least at this price. Sandwiches and cakes were great but the scones (the cornerstone of tea!) were very bland. Will be sticking with the Windsor Arms from now on."

"If you're looking for a spot downtown wherein the food and service are great - and where you can hold a reasonable conversation without struggling to hear, the Library Bar is the place. Have had the burgers, quiche and salads - all fantastic!"

"On Open table I searched for afternoon tea Toronto for Dec 30. It was a special occasion and I specifically wanted afternoon tea. Venues that were suggested were Windsor Arms and Fairmont Royal York. Booked Fairmont and headed down there with a very excited 6 yr old out for a special holiday treat. Get to the library bar only to be told 'did you book through OpenTable? We really need to get on to them as we don't do afternoon tea during the week only Saturday and Sunday' so I could basically take my 6 yr old into the library bar for a beverage.
How ridiculous. OpenTable: please rectify this on your options -
It didn't sound like we were the first to
Make this discovery. I had to leave with my sobbing 6 yr old. Not cool.

"I was looking for a late lunch or high tea to share with a friend to celebrate the Christmas season. This is a very well appointed and cozy bar/ restaurant. The service ( by Michael) was impeccable. I would recommend this spot to those who enjoy an elegant ( high brow) but old fashioned ambiance. The library is after all in one of the oldest hotels in Toronto."

"The Library Bar has been a favourite for both myself and my friends for many, many years. The food is always delicious, the service just right and it is always a comfortable place to unwind and catch up with friends. People can actually talk to each other without yelling! I will always recommend this restaurant as a great place to have a meal or have a drink and relax."

"The food was very good but the wait to receive the wine (15 minutes) and the food (40 minutes) was too long. It was annoying as there was no time for dessert and coffee as we had to get back to work as we had been there for 1 1/2 hours by then.
The server was professional and capable but was running around and not to adequately serve everyone. More servers are definitely needed! Lorna Ward"

"Tea service is simply divine at the Royal York, they keep true to the traditional tea settings unlike many other tea services around the city (I am a bit of a high tea aficionado).
Service is always above and beyond, the staff are well versed on what they serve and have gluten free options available if asked in advance.
