Le Salon at the Windsor Court Hotel Ratings and Reviews
I thought the atmosphere was great however the overall experience could have been better. For $37 per person plus 22% gratuity it includes a harpist, a cocktail, 4 petite finger sandwiches, bottomless teas, 2 scones and various mini desserts that are not equally distributed. There was only one macaroon that my party of 4 each wanted and other desserts that they provided however we didn't finish the tiny extra puff pastry because it was not good being it was flavorless. Overall my party of 4 was seated promptly. We still waited after being seated as there were limited staff. The server was nice but slow. I assumed the food would come out together however we had cocktails first with a delay. Then the sandwichiches arrived which are unsubstantial, the tea arrived after we were done with our sandwiches and the the scones and lastly the desserts. I would have preferred all the food being out to eat with the tea being at the table so we could quickly refill. I will likely not do this again as I can't justify spending this amount of money and still leave unfulfilled.
High tea with friends to celebrate a birthday and to wish a good friend adios. As always, the service was wonderful and the sandwiches and sweets were delicious. It was a little bit noisy this time due to a bridal shower/tea right next to us. The weather was frightful and the service delightful. We are looking forward to doing this again.
afternoon tea for my friend and myself birthdays was just great -we had such a good time the whole experience was so special each one of the staff was so helpful and friendly/welcoming the service was perfect and relaxed and the tea itself was very correctly English with the china, choice of teas, scones, finger sandwiches thank you we will be back
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.
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!
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.
