    A lovely young charming chap in a hat looked after us. Afternoon cream tea was delicious. We asked for doggie bags to take home leftovers and he was very obliging. The cafe is a beautiful 18th century Venetian style with chandeliers. Highly recommend it

    Service very slow to start. Bread in sandwiches dry but cakes were lovely. Overpriced for what it was though

    We like the store and other food and drink we have had there were very good . But £65 for one cup of tea and one sandwich which was dry and curled each . The scones were so small. Very poor service kept taking things away when wasn't finished and not asked if we wanted any more tea wasn't given a choice of tea either .

    It was a birthday gift to me from last year. We had a booking we had to cancel because of Covid-19. So we booked again same restaurant when restrictions were lifted. The restaurant looked nice with the chandeliers and blossom. The staff were very friendly and respectful. The food was nice.Thank you.

    Will certainly be returning back! loved the atmosphere, the service was brilliant (Christina from the Whitehall branch served us, she was polite and accomadating to our needs), our table was clean and we were seated at the back which was nice and quiet, we went on a Saturday afternoon, so everything was just perfect! not to mention, the drinks, the cakes, yummy! Their afternoon tea is the best, and i will certainly be returning again.. this was a treat for my sisters birthday and she loved it! Grand, sophisticated and relaxing sums it up! :) you will not be dissapointed!

    Our daughters who are 12 and 14 were really looking forward to afternoon tea while we were visiting London. We choose Cafe Concrete based on the ambience, chandeliers and blue comfy chairs. The ambience and food were good but the attitude of the hostess and waitstaff was very rude. They treated us as if they preferred us not to be there. There was only one other couple in the restaurant when we walked into the door (and only the one couple the whole time we were there) I let the hostess know we had a reservation. She asked me if I was sure I booked it at the right Cafe Concerta and then asked to see my reservation online to verify that we indeed did have one. I am not sure why as we were already there and there were plenty of tables. After we were seated a gentleman took our order. The only other time we saw either of them was when they brought our food. After awhile I had to get up and find the waiter to ask for more tea and water for our table. I also asked if they would bring one more chocolate dessert as we had 3 girls and although there were other desserts on the tier, there were only 2 chocolate ones. I was told no they could not do that. Also, we did not want refills but just to let you know that unlike other restaurants that do tea, there is no refills of food or drinks covered in the cost of the afternoon tea price. When we were done and ready to leave we waited patiently for a long time but I eventually had to go find the server to ask for the bill. This was a very disappointing experience as everyone was excited to be dressed up and going out for tea before leaving town.

    Well, you get what you pay for. We made the mistake of looking for a more affordable afternoon tea, and that’s about what we got. The food, especially the bland, doughy scones, was entirely average and forgettable. The service about the same. If the cost is all that matters to you, Caffe Concertto will probably do, but if you are looking for a more complete afternoon tea experience, this will be disappointing.

    I produced a groupon voucher discounted and received what I would call an afternoon tea for one person not two, I have been previously and received much more value for money, never again.

    Unfortunately venue had not received our booking but were able to fit us in. Staff where wonderful, attentive but not over the top. Only criticism would be that the sparkling element was served to close to the tea. Lovely sandwiches, scones and desserts. Will definitely go again. V

    Staff were delightful! Food was delicious, albeit some of the cakes not what I would choose. (I’m a savoury lover) xx Ambiance was incredible considering the protests down the road. It was a lovely little break away from the hustle. Bathrooms were spotless also xx

    Service was ok - one lady was very helpful & the rest were average. Food - afternoon tea- was quite nice but you could tell it had been sitting on the plate for a while. Was good but doubt we’ll go for afternoon tea again to be honest.

    Excellent afternoon tea of sandwiches, brioche, scones, jam, cream & selection of cakes all served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Bogdan was especially helpful and charming, staff were all friendly and attentive. Well worth a visit. Stunning chandeliers too.

    We had booked in advance but this as not checked when we arrived. We were just sat at an unreserved table. Had we booked and arrived at a full restaurant we wouldn’t have been able to eat. The service was quick and the staff were friendly enough. The food was the most disappointing part. We had afternoon two but the sandwiches were verging on stales and the fillings were almost tasteless. The cakes were old with the macaroons being so soft that they crumbled when we picked them up. The scones were good though and cake with plenty of cream but only a tiny pot of jam. Wouldn’t recommend.

    We (my wife, children and myself) arrived to find the restaurant vibrant and full, I was pleased that I had booked for my wife's surprise birthday tea as we were guided to a table. Unfortunately the staff had not been informed about the special cake which I had selected and written on the booking 'comments'. But the manager quickly put my concerns at ease and said an appropriate cake would be found. Both of my sons chose hot food 'it was the best piazza I have ever had' said my 11 year old, who is very choosy. Then a cake arrived with glowing cakes (which I had not asked for) and it was just what I had hoped for. Thank you for making us all feel so special and for contributing so well to my wife's special birthday weekend. THANK YOU (we will be back).

    I treated my daughter to afternoon tea, but I was disappointed - the sandwiches were dry and nothing special at all. The scones were a bit crispy and hard in the middle perhaps where they hadn't been defrosted properly. I asked for a pot of hot water to make my small pot of tea stretch further, and it never arrived. Cakes and pastries good though, but perhaps they are made off site.
