Le Salon at the Windsor Court Hotel Ratings and Reviews

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.

This was a very classy venue for High Tea. I had a wonderful experience. The occasion should warrant a very dressed-up apparel for attendees, well behaved children (if they must come), and a certain décor. The champagne, tea sandwiches, scones, desserts, and huge variety of teas was absolutely splendid, and equaled my experience in London. The music by an accomplished harpist complimented and made The High Tea experience occasion complete.

The waitress was totally out of it. First the staff had to find her in order for us to be seated. Then she would disappear into a back room for great lengths of time (only one other table had people seated). Then we had to send someone to find her in order to get our check. She poured one cup of tea each, put the tea pot our of reach and by the time she reappeared the tea was cold. The food was ordinary for a high tea. The sitting was classic club lounge comfortable. The final straw was the mandatory 20% gratuity. No wonder the waitress didn't bother providing professional service. She go her 20% no matter what she did.

I have been to Le Salon at the Windsor Court Hotel many times, and each time I have thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, teas, and food offerings. This is the first time, however, that I felt that the service was very slow. For some reason, other tables seemed to be better served than mine.

Food for Afternoon tea are good and yummy. But there charged full price for kid. I think is too pricey !! Moreover, our cup of tea always empty and have to wait for server to pour us a cup of tea! It takes like more than 20 minutes to wait for a server to come to our table and pour us the tea. If you don't mind to wait for your tea to be pour then you can go there for afternoon tea. So this is really rude our day. We had been to so many high tea places in the hotel ( NY , Phoenix, Philadelphia) and all those places will leave your pot of tea on the table and you pour it yourself . This place ... Only has two servers are working in the whole afternoon tea room.

We did the 11 AM tea on Saturday, 5/28 for my bachelorette weekend. The service was impeccable. Our waitress was so funny when some members of our party said they would prefer coffee over tea, apparently a sin when you are going for tea, but the service was perfect! The tea was delicious, and the chocolate covered strawberries as a congratulations for getting married soon were a sweet after tea treat! I cannot wait to go back.
Afternoon Tea--a little pricy
I have been to a few afternoon teas at different hotels locally and in other states. I really enjoy the Windsor Court, the service, food, tea and ambiance are wonderful! My only complaint is that we are still charged for parking. If you go to Afternoon Tea at the Ritz (or to the restaurant or lounge any time of day) Valet parking is free. It is validated so you aren't paying as much, but still...

It was the most elegant tea setting that my daughters and I have been to. Everything about Le Salon was perfect from the tea sandwiches to the beautiful music played by the harpist on Mother's Day. Great attention was given to detail with an added touch of a charming farewell gift of their Mother's Day tea to all of the Mothers.
Lovely setting and food for afternoon tea!
The ambiance, service, food, and music are exceptional! Hostess Helen and server Lisa are professional and attentive. Harpist Rachel VanVoorhees was outstanding! Wonderful experience while visiting with a friend and celebrating Mother's Day!
I enjoyed having tea at the Windsor Court; this was my fifth time to do so. The food was wonderful and the service excellent. It is truly one of my favorite experiences.
This time, however, there was a large group that was entirely too loud for the setting. Their nosiness impeded my conversation. Also, the tea itself was warm, but not hot.
We had a wonderful tea at the Windsor Court to celebrate my sister's upcoming wedding. The staff was attentive and very knowledgeable about the different types of tea on the menu. She made great suggestions for our tea. All the food was delicious and freshly made (we ate at the 2:00 pm tea), and the cocktails were the best of the trip. The teas was wonderful as well.
This hotel used to have the best afternoon tea service in New Orleans. I am not sure if it was just an off day for the staff, but it was not how I remembered it. The room seemed very tired, and the wait staff not there normal sharp appearance. Overall the food was fine and service was good it just seemed a little expensive for what you received. When I left ,it felt like been there done that, check it off the list. Don't need to go back.
Our overview experience at Le Salon at Windsor Court was awful. It took a very long time to get our glass of champagne after we were seated. After we finally ordered, it took a very long time to get our tea. The sandwiches arrived after a very long time, but still no tea served. The sandwich bread was getting stale and hard before we finally got our tea. We had a hard time catching anyone's attention for more tea. For the price of the tea, the service should have been impeccable.
I've never had a bad experience before at le salon at Windsor Court.... But this time, all the tables were filled and there were only 2 waiters! I'm sure something must've happened to the others - spring allergie perhaps? But we had to wait much longer than usual for service.
We had a great time at the Easter tea. Everyone at the Windsor Court was friendly and professional. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The tea was perfect, the finger sandwiches, scones and dessert were delicious and the cocktails were festive. We enjoyed being able to celebrate three birthdays, and also enjoyed that our entire family was there. (Our youngest was 2.) If you would like to treat yourself to a great tea, this is the place!!!
The finger sandwiches were not good. The cucumbers should be peeled and the sandwiches were very dry. The curry sandwiches are not very popular with children. The scones were great and the desserts were great. the salmon sandwiches were great
We had four people having tea for the first time at the Windsor Court this past weekend to celebrate an upcoming wedding. We really enjoyed ourselves and thought the food and service were great. I'd agree with other reviews I saw that the food is not bountiful--you're really given exactly the same number of sandwiches--one of each kind (maybe 6?)--and they're very small. Tasty, but even with the scones and small truffles that followed, it was a pretty insubstantial amount of food compared to other teas I've been to. Still, a lovely setting and our waitress had great recommendations and knew a lot about the tea. We'll be back I'm sure, but might plan on lunch beforehand.
