Tea at the Plaza Hotel

I have never been to the Plaza Hotel. I’ve admired it and walked by it a gazillion times, I even worked across the street from it, but up until Saturday, I’ve never been into Eloise’s home.

I am so happy I finally got to experience high tea at the Plaza Hotel.

I think the last time I had tea, I was in London sitting across the table from the same person I sat across the table from on Saturday, my longtime friend, Michelle.

Overall Review: 8.5/10

I would recommend tea at the Palm Court.

Food: 9/10

We ordered one Manhattan Tea and one Plaza Signature Tea. There were so many finger sandwiches, scones and pastries, we left full! We were very surprised by how much food there was. We were also very happy there was so much food and a giant pot of tea each because the grand total of teatime was $255.

The scones and finger sandwiches were delicious and very filling. The tea was great too. I was disappointed by the dessert tray. I was hoping for mouthwatering pastries, but that wasn’t the case. I know I’m being picky, but with a high price tag, it should’ve been perfect. I loved the macaroons and cheesecake. However, there was an apricot custard and mint cake which did nothing for my taste buds.

Service: 7.5/10

Sadly, I was disappointed by the service. With a big price tag like this, you are ultimately paying for the service, and I left unimpressed. Michelle and I are always very conversational with the staff and polite, but our waiter wanted nothing to do with us. He was chatty and friendly with the tables around us but didn’t peep one word to us except to take our order and asked us how everything was while we were eating.

Ambiance: 9/10

The Palm Court at the Plaza Hotel looks just like the movies. It’s beautiful and historic. The ceiling is gorgeous, and the room is covered in greenery. I also loved the tables, chairs, cutlery and China.

Value: 8.5/10

This was a very expensive day but overall, the price tag was worth it. The food was good, there was an abundance of it and the setting was beautiful. I’m glad we finally got to go!
