    We had a lovely breakfast in the Piccadilly branch. Staff were friendly and polite and quick to take our order and bring our food and drinks. Beautifully decorated caffe, a place for a treat. Prices are high but being in central London you would expect this. The cakes looks lovely, I’d be back to try those!

    The decor is pretty enough and afternoon tea itself was nice. The service and the wait staff were particularly poor. We asked for 2 glasses of water and were brought one, so asked for another and waited for 10minutes-no water was brought. We then asked a different member of staff for water and again waited over 10mins, still nothing. I then walked to the bar to get a glass of water myself. I enquired why despite asking 3 separate members of staff we were waiting over 20mins and I received no explanation and the woman behind the bar (who had been the 3rd member of staff we requested water from 10mins earlier) didn’t even want to make eye contact. It’s a shame that despite being in such a prime location and having pretty decor upstairs the service and also the toilets were so disappointing. We will not be returning and would discourage others from visiting.

    Very poor service . Staff didn’t know what they were doing . They didn’t take away the dirty dishes after we had finished They did not have the mulled wine which was on the menu nor the Merlot which was only one of five reds on the menu It was expensive and certainly not value for money Toilets were dirty and had not been cleaned

    This was a celebration for a 82yrs old lady. The place was almost empty, yet the waiter want to put us in a corner table, squashing us with other guests already in a squashed dark corner. When I asked to be seated elsewhere the waiter was not happy and said “ this is the reserved table” and can’t be changed. I asked to speak to a manager and see what could be done. After several minutes of waiting we got moved to a bit more space. The food was okay, however for the same money, I have eaten much better and had a courtesy top ups. Definitely not visiting this place again.

    This was a gift experience and I totally enjoyed my afternoon tea with a friend. The lovely fresh sandwiches and cakes were delicious, we had a glass of prosecco and ordered tea as well which complimented our afternoon tea very well. This was a very nice place where the service was efficient and friendly. Would recommend Caffe Concerto in Piccadilly and most probably will go and have tea again.

    Food was lovely. Bit short on the amount of savoury (2x small sandwiches and a small brioche bun) Had to ask for more clotted cream as there was only enough for one person ( 1x plain scone & 1x fruit scone) and there was 2 of us but waiter was happy to get more. Overall lovely afternoon Tea.

    Lovely staff, very helpful. Lack of chefs meant long waits for food. I had a terrible ham omelette which wasn’t whipped together properly and slices of ham were thrown all over the eggy mess. I have eaten omelettes for years and was even taught by an au pair how to cook on professionally! We love Caffe Concerto but due to awful food and lack of chefs, we won’t be going back soon sadly.

    over priced, nearly £6 for two small scones, a pot of jam that was barely enough for one scone and a tea spoon of clotted cream. They did not have full complement of ice cream flavours, did not have decaffeinated coffee. Smell of cigarette smoke from the toilets. I will not be going back.

    I went with my daughter and her friend for a pre-university treat of afternoon tea. The food was fine and a couple of the serving staff were trying their best in a busy environment. But overall the service was very poor and very slow. We had to ask more than once for things that had been ordered but had been forgotten (including the tea!). Disappointing.

    First off, we had lower expectations going into the establishment due to online reviews. We had a gift voucher for afternoon tea. On the bright side, the atmosphere and ambience was pleasant and overall the afternoon tea platter was good! Nothing fancy and no choice of teas (just English breakfast), but the platter presented was presentable and tasty. Like many reviews, I would say the service was just ok. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks. The staff seemed to be there, but not present. We didn't have main dishes so can't speak on quality of hot prepared meals. I wouldn't really recommend the chain as we are spoiled for choice here in London (and they could do better), but it was a decent experience.

    It was a great location, service was very attentive to start off but it tailed off and it was difficult to get staff’s attention to pay the bill. Think it was a shift change? But they were all friendly. Food was fine. & would definitely come another time. In fact this is my second visit

    This was such a disappointment. When I arrived the manager said he didn't have the booking and asked if I was in the right place. I found the booking in my emails and went to show him and clearly over his shoulder I could see the booking on his system. This meant he had not looked and they were not prepared for a party of this size. Although they were not busy at all - we found the whole service poor. From waiting ages for our drinks, things missing from our afternoon tea, to being automatically charged for service. When we challenged this we were told 'it's not my restaurant and I make £9 per hour.' One of our party is disabled and there is no disabled toilet - I thought everywhere had to make provision for disabled people! She had to struggle up and down stairs. We saw people get up and leave as they were waiting so long for coffee. A shame as this was a special celebration for us all.

    I went to ask the male staff a question, and was shocked to find him VERY rude. He made a dismissive wafting gesture for me to sit down and stated he would “come to the table”. To make matters worse he never even came. Though the lady did offer a free coffee/tea/cake to compensate, and was very sweet.

    The service was excellent, very polite and friendly staff, however the food was terrible. The sandwiches had obviously been pre-made earlier that morning and were very dry and stale and inedible. For £25 for an afternoon tea it wasn’t worth the money. Have had far superior afternoon teas for the same price, disappointing.
