So, I want to preface this by saying I have celiac, so I specifically went here because of their gluten-free tea. As my partner was my young daughter who had the children's tea, I cannot comment on the normal tea quality. I was so excited to come here because they have a gluten free tea and, honestly, I haven't had a tea experience since I was diagnosed. I brought along my youngest and we gave it a shot while on vacation. Her tea looked delicious and delightful -- she ate every bite. My food, however, was ok. The appetizer was nice -- bright, fresh mushrooms and pomegranate seeds were a tasty combination. The sandwiches were a mixed bag. I liked the gluten free white bread they used, it was light and went well with the egg salad and chicken salad. They had a different kind of bread that was dense and dry, however, which really did a disservice to the beef wellington and fruit/nut sandwiches that were served on it. The desserts were good, if a tad standard -- mousse, creme brulee, macaron, macaroon, and a flourless chocolate cake were served. The macaron and macaroon were very nice, but the others were nothing to really write home about. Which leaves me to the last course, the scones were downright inedible.... and that was probably the thing I was the most excited about. Dense as a neutron star, bone dry, and flavorless... they couldn't even be helped by the lemon curd and clotted cream that were served with them. I couldn't even finish one, nevermind the two given to me... and I saw no reason to take them with me either. Service: Service was... ok... Maybe it was too busy for them, but our server seemed flustered. Even though I confirmed with 3 people, he was surprised I needed GF accommodations. The meal was excrutiatingly slow and it took us 105 minutes to have our tea and be done... during which our tea pots were never refreshed with hot water. Overall, an ok if disappointing experience.
