The desserts were old, bland and completely soggy. Better dessert experience from a kiosk Starbucks. Definitely not in anyway a fine dining or luxurious tea

Didn’t feel this was clearly advertised. $35/person not including a drink for a cute dessert cart. One in our party couldn’t eat off the cart. After ordering tea and a charcuterie board the total was ~200$ with tip for 3 people. The dessert tray was cute, but was expecting a more normal tea setup, not worth the money

There was no High Tea it had been cancelled without any notice. I fear the venerable St Regis is doomed.

It is definitely not the traditional British afternoon tea. It is more like a set of decadent desserts. Everything tasted good, not too sweet and the presentation was great. The service was good but could have better. I believe they might have been understaffs or busy. But the server picked up the service after an hour after we sit

It was an pretty cool experience! The cherry blossom tree was awesome, the service was great. The only small complaint would be that the desserts could be better and fresher, the cupcakes were good but there were still cold probably from sitting in the fridge. Other then that an amazing time.

The experience was very underwhelming and no tea was served so probably will not go to St. Regis again for afternoon tea.

This experience was absolutely wonderful. Everything from the decor to the service to the food and drink was absolutely divine. Items on the menu are very reasonably priced and high quality. The Decadence Afternoon is worth every penny. I am already looking forward to booking my next tea!

We had a fantastic time! The tea and champagne were delicious, as were the pastries. Stephane was a phenomenal server and bent over backwards to make sure we enjoyed our time and had our requests fulfilled. We will be returning to try their afternoon tea service once it starts up again!

Wish it was offered as a high tea over just dessert and there were more tea options. The service was amazing, the cherry blossom presentation was breathtaking. I would do this again if tea were offered.

I wish Exec Chefs would STOP trying to improve the traditional English Afternoon Tea. I want a standard 3-tiered server, not a cheapo plastic tree with desserts hanging from it! Tacky. I want cream cheese & cucumber and egg salad sandwiches, with crust cut off! I want a scone, lemon curd and cream. I know Cherry Blossoms are out, maybe just put some fresh blossoms in a vase? This was just some tiny desserts. The tea was good! The table, far too small.
Next time I'll have tea somewhere more traditional.

Overall, the afternoon tea at the St.Regis was a let down. Our experience began with a seemingly puzzled concierge instructing us to wait for a table to become available. Despite our reservation, we waited nearly 20 minutes. My wife and I were only then seated—without an apology for the overlong delay—squarely in front of the mains doors, which were left open to let in the 37-degree breeze. The food neither disappointed nor wowed. Unfortunately, the same lackluster service that started the evening continued throughout our tea. Our waiter disappeared throughout most of our time; he did, however, return once—to ask if we wanted the check. Alas, I’ll consider the other hotels in the city before booking the St. Regis for tea again!
