Le Salon at the Windsor Court Hotel Ratings and Reviews

The atmosphere is somewhat formal but not at all stuffy. The staff is friendly and unpretentious.
For the price though, I do think they could do a bit better with the flavor of the finger sandwiches and the candies. One should not have to pay so much for something that could be made much tastier in ones own home. Although the scones are the best I've ever had; no room for improvement there.

Tea at Le Salon is always a delightful experience. The service, ambience and overall experience is always consistent. Going for Holiday tea with all the decorative trimmings leaves for even better enjoyment of the festivities and happening during the month December. It is always great to see people still dressing for events such as this. I would recommend this for small groups or intimate couples.

A great place for afternoon tea. The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Menu featured a large selection of teas and other selections. Price was good for everything included and service was exceptional.

Always an amazing time at high tea! Service was fantastic and we had a beautiful time. Only part we noticed different from usual is the canapés and scones and desserts all seemed a bit drab/stale. Holiday tea is so busy I'm sure they are all made early on but we noticed the difference. Otherwise, amazing!

Ambiance nice. Costly for amount of food served. Tea included alcoholic drink. Maybe have two separate menu choices with and without alcohol with two price ranges. Server seemed to be stretched thin because sandwiches were served by someone else before our tea order was even taken by her. Therefore, we had food without tea. Top piece of bread on turkey sandwich was slightly stale, like it had sat out a while. But, atmosphere was lovely, piano playing beautiful, Christmas tree very pretty.

Seated promptly; staff helpful and pleasant. Sandwiches left much to be desired as to the size amount; rather have more food than dessert for the Price. Tea not properly brewed (bottomless pot - is what I was told) which meant the hot water was continually added to the same tea leaves! By cup 3 it could not be drunk due to the fact it was terribly bitter. Shame on the Tea Room!

It is always a delight to come to Windsor Court for High Tea. We were not disappointed in the Christmas decor, tea and accompaniments. The service was slow and not as attentive. Our server seemed to have too many tables.

A very lovely place for afternoon tea. Beautiful room and china. Delicious food with all the options expected for tea, including scones, tea sandwiches and bite sized desserts. Plus a company in music. Highly recommend.

We had a great time at the Halloween Tea. Dracula was present with just the right amount of scary. This event was perfect for small children, older children, and adults. We hav e gone before and missed the insectarium.

The wife dragged me to Le Salon for the High Tea (a la Downton Abbey) at Windsor Court Hotel. There was a bit of confusion over the reservation (I made it for 1:45pm) since its only at 2pm weekdays. It turned out to be a real treat that I am happy I experienced. The high tea is held in a tastefully decorated and comfortable area of the hotel lobby which is quite nice (over sized chairs couches, soft lighting, etc.) that adjoins the bar. The wait staff were extremely pleasant, welcoming, and attentive. Guys will not find the tea sandwiches particularly filling but when you add in the tasty scones and rich desserts it is quite enough. There are also several cocktail specials to choose from and there is the tea. This is one of those things that the ladies love and I was the only fellow in the area. We really didn't need a reservation although its wise to make one. In sum, I had a high time at the high tea. Dress is casual but reserved at the Windsor Court and it's all priced accordingly.

This was my first experience with an afternoon tea service and Le Salon exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere, the food, the service was all completely delightful. I will be back to Le Salon at every future trip to NOLA.

Afternoon tea was spectacular at Le Salon. We were visiting New Orleans and my boyfriend and I just love a tea service. And we were very impressed with service, food, and ambiance. You get a lot for the price, but overall ended up being a little spendy for brunch/lunch. But such a great experience! Definitely would recommend.

I loved the piano playing in the background. The service was warm, friendly, and professional. The food was appetizing and presented well. I loved the courses and the options.
My only suggestion would be to make better use of the green back wall. Photos could easily go there or a digital board that allowed people to load their photos or selfies daily. Each day the digital board would change so that images of the current day were only displayed.
If you did not want to provide this option during the day. This would definitely be a great happy hour to late evening option for customers. Great way to get real-time reviews and stay trendy (yet classy during the day.)

I have invited some friends to tea at the Windsor Court for tea for a few special occasions. I love tea parties and there is an undoubtedly refined, polished, and just plain fun location at this hotel. The themed tea parties are always fun, with a loud and happy rendition of the unbirthday song and even dances with a handsome young mad hatter for the Alice in Wonderland tea.

Wonderful experience celebrating my daughter's 50th birthday. The tea party was perfect. Everyone serving us were so professional yet friendly and courteous. Helen took time to chat with us about New Orleans. Better than many tea rooms I have visited in England. Thank you for helping to make a special birthday truly unique.

Atmosphere was amazing. The tea selection was great. They poured for you every time you ran out-didn't have to worry about running out of tea. It was a little pricey but totally worth it for a special occasion with a loved one(s).

I had tea on my birthday with three of my closest friends. The tea and the food were delicious and the service was outstanding. I was thrilled when they brought out a tray of desserts to celebrate my birthday. It was above and beyond what I was expecting. Thank you, Windsor Court for making my day extra special.

We went for mother/daughter day to celebrate my daughter 13 th birthday. She enjoyed being treated like a "grown up" for this special occasion. It was fun to dress up and wear hats and just feel like a girl. They treated my girl to a special birthday plate with chocolate strawberries while playing happy birthday on the piano.
