    Very disappointing! Draughty, waitress could not understand. Very sweet but language barrier a real problem. Food adequate but embarrassed to treat my friend to such a mediocre tea on her 50th. Attended many venues and by far the worst. A waste ofoney.

    The restaurant staffs are courteous and considerate in offering us to move to another venue when it was near closing time.

    However, unlike other afternoon tea services, the hotel only allowed us to take away 2 items only (scones and a dessert). Since we have not finished and would have loved to take away some of the desserts that were not served in hotelwares, we were rather disappointed.

    Furthermore, when we requested for an additional sandwich midway through the experience, we were told that it will be charged (which was not the norm in our previous afternoon tea service elsewhere). Perhaps there was a fine line somewhere?? The variety of the gluten/lactose -free option is not comparable for the price.

    Could have been a better experience.

    Afternoon tea with family. Food was lovely and just the right amount. Good selection of teas. The restaurant was stylish and our table was round with a semi circle banquette which was great for the 4 of us. Table beautifully laid out. The servere was also excellent. Will definitely come back when in London

    Disappointed with the afternoon tea experience. When asked for second round of sandwiches (they are really small ) we were told there will be a surcharge. Something that I have never heard before. The ambiance is not exactly afternoon tea friendly and service was average. Choice of desserts very dated as well.

    It was fabulous and they made the visit extra special.

    We had afternoon tea here and I I would not come back again--the sandwiches were soggy and the bread they used seemed stale. Dessert was poorly made as well. The creme brulee and the fruit tart filling had horrible texture. Three others tasted like dilluted liquid yoghurt or ice cream. The view or ambiance of the restaurant was not particularly impressive either. Even though the tea was a 2 fpr £40 deal, I still feel my money was wasted.

    This was my second afternoon tea at the Millennium Mayfair & it certainly didn't disappoint, in fact it exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating & the staff made a huge fuss of us & added extras that made the whole experience memorable, as well as excellent value.

    I haden't been to the hotel before, but I was very impressed, the staff were very attentive and very nice and also they asked if it was a special occasion, it had been my birthday, last week and the chef had made me an individual Cheesecake as a birthday gift, it was very delicious, but I would have liked a few more Sandwiches though, but I was very impressed, Very Well Done to all the Team at the Milenium.

    My afternoon tea experience started and ended beautifully. We arrived ahead of our booking but we were seen to straight away which was lovely. No one ever likes to hang about. The main room we sat in was lovely, spacious & quaint. Our host was nice enough to explain the dishes and even suggested some tea options. We had the Rose Fig & Apple with Elderflower which was simply yum. When the food arrived, I was overwhelmed as to how beautiful it looked. I struggled to finish the desserts at the end but that's a good sign. I would very much recommend this place and I would certainly go back again. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
