"It's been a tradition for my friends and I to get tea every year instead of giving each other gifts. Normally we have gone to another upscale hotel, but we tried the Fairmont instead. Needless to say, we're coming back next year and not going to the other place! Food was delicious and fresh, hot water came and we didn't have to wave down a waiter every time. Service was very attentive without being overwhelming. Can't wait till next year!"

"Friends joined my spouse and me for dinner at this hotel restaurant. The setting is outstanding and historic but unfortunately for several of us the food was only mediocre. My husband and I returned the next day for afternoon tea. We had really looked forward to having a traditional afternoon tea but, again, were unhappy with the quality of the food. The experience, including the decor and history of the room was wonderful but the food and service were disappointing. I think that because my spouse and I split the food but added an extra tea that the waitstaff was unhappy and less attentive to us. Would recommend for the experience of eating in this lovely space but with reservations re the quality of the food or service."

"After taking a tour of The Fairmont, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Laurel Court. We each had a tasty and generous sandwich, and the bill was less than we expected. Great service and the room is lovely. We will be returning. The brunch looked great!"

"Such a shame. This used to be nice, if not fancy and lovely tea service. Now it's more expensive, no longer comes with a glass of bubbles, sandwiches and desserts now less abundant and not as nice food stuffs as previously offered - actually...pretty bad - and the service, or at least our waiter that day, was shoddy. I was so disappointed."

"We had stayed at the Ritz Carlton down the block recently and experienced their Sunday brunch during our stay. It was very nice. But, we decided to try the Fairmont Sunday brunch this past week during a day of shopping. It was fabulous. The food is varied and well prepared. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere is one-of-a-kind as only the Fairmont Hotel can be. We were extremely pleased and will definitely return."

"There was nothing memorable about the high tea... it was poor quality of food and slow service and no silver teapots or white linens...disappointing... next time the Palace Hotel"

"The prix fixe at the laurel Court New Year's eve early seating was very tasty. We liked the selection of foods and the sources all mentioned on the special menu.
Wine pairing was very good too and several of us had that option.
The one flaw? Our vegetarian friend did not receive her entrée until 10 minutes after others were served and when it came, though attractive on the plate, was cold.
Our server was very sweet and cheerful and helpful and we saw him at breakfast the next day (sumptuous )"

"We made reservations for Christmas eve ahead of time. No where were we notified that only the buffet would be available. The buffet was everyday run of the mill. Ham and roast. Cold dry rolls. Yams mashed but no seasonings thay we could tell. Everything was very plain. Hometown buffet style.chain restaraunt Would have been better. Charged 95.00 each. We didn't even include alcohol. Very disappointed. Never again will we go here."

"Feastive place to take family for holiday tea. All enjoyed food, tea and champagne. Gingerbread house and decorations in the lobby a big plus. It is rather pricey - but for a holiday treat, I'd do it again."

"wonderful ambiance and delicious food. A very nice place to enjoy the company you are with and to escape the every day hustle.
Waiter checked on us too soon then did not come back nor could he be flagged down for water refill and extra dressing. Besides these two details, really a very pleasant experience."

"Having Christmas Tea at Laurel Court...walking through the beautifully decorated lobby to a life sized Gingerbread House complete with toy train....what is not to LOVE! It holds promises of everything delectable. Unfortunately it was not that. Excellent decorations...excellent food preparation and presentation. The tea sandwiches and savory scone (filled with a slice of fabulous salmon)...sublime! The desserts were a sweet tooth's dream.
The entertaining balloon guy...the pianist...the Snowflake Fairy from the North Pole...all delightful...
The service....terrible. Tea, water even champagne promptly delivered.....then 40 minutes later the waiter came and asked if we wanted to order "tea" (???). Six pots sat in front of us....tea in six cups.... When I inquired about our food the waiter seemed a bit dazed...then said..."of course".
Please understand...waiters can be overwhelmed...too many tables and they only have two hands...but sadly this waiter had more than 50% vacancy of tables...
The yummy trays were delivered....and again the waiter was MIA.... Did not return until we had quite finished....
Tea in the pots was gone....NO refills of hot water....had to ask a bus boy....
So....
Six holiday tea munchers.... $750 dollars later....
Am I happy we went....yes!
The Gingerbread House....etc....so nicely done.
Will we go again or suggest this to others....sadly "No"....
My suggestion to you....
Go...
Look at the decorations....
Sneak a peek at the food (yes it is scrumptous)....
Then go to Lovejoy's, Dartealing's, Crown and Crumpets, Secret Garden (or any other SF tea shoppe) for tea and throw in tickets to the Nutcracker....you will spend the same amount and have lovely service to go with a lovely tea.

"It was very pleasant to have dinner at the Laurel Courtyard. The appetizer was good.
However, I was surprised the entree was for a Thanksgiving meal with turkey slices, stuffing
and gravy, since Thanksgiving had passed and this evening was Christmas. It certainly
could have been a different entree. Overall the 5 course dinner was enjoyable.

"I know it's busy night. We wait half hour for our food. The waiter didn't check on us after he took our order. My husband finally catching him and tell him we wait too long for our food than he goes in the kitchen to check our food. Food is OK, will not back to them."

"The room is beautiful with a luxurious old-fashioned feel. Food and service were good but not extraordinary. Dinner was a buffet, somewhat disappointing for a holiday evening. Choices were well prepared but not very extensive. Did not justify the $99/person charge."
