Afternoon tea with the girls

Location: Age: 45-54 Occasion: Just because!
Lovely surroundings and fantastic food ,nicely presented and the cakes were super scrummy! However, just a couple of little disappointments on the service side of things. Our waiter couldn't have been friendlier to start with but once he realised we had booked using this deal he cooled noticeably and couldn't have whipped the champagne flutes of the table any quicker, even though we were considering paying extra for a glass of bubbly we didn't get the chance. The other little issue that we had was that at no point during the afternoon were we offered either hot water to top our teapots up or any more fresh tea, disappointing as we started on the tea before the food arrived.

Very disappointing

I took my friend to the Waldorf for afternoon tea for her birthday treat thinking it would be a memorable experience. It was certainly that. The service was poor and the food second rate. We firstly complained to our waitress about the food, scones that were so flat they looked like drop scones and not baked in the middle. Then we told her about the sandwiches which were dry and tasteless. As well as this two of the cakes weren't baked through. She said she would let her manager know and offered us another round of tea/coffee, when this came it was the wrong order and it took two attempts to get the correct order. We were so disappointed we decided to leave. When we got to the reception the same waitress asked if everything was ok. We asked her if she had relayed our complaint to her manager, which she confirmed she had, I asked what his response was and she just shrugged. By this time we were annoyed at the treatment we asked to see him. He reluctantly came out to speak to us and told us that no one else had complained!! We told him of our experience and we asked when the sandwiches were made and apparels they are made first thing in the morning as stored. Given our booking was for 2.45pm it is hardly surprising that they had began to go hard and curly. And as for him saying no other complaints had been made this is a shoddy way to deal with a customer. Eventually he told me he woul look into it and he had my email address and would be in contact with me. That was 3 days ago and I have not heard a word from him. I really do not expect this from a five star hotel, very, very disappointed, though given the attitude to our complaint I am not surprised. It felt as though because we were the last booking of the day, they were laying tables for dinner around us, they couldn't wait to get us out. Certainly not the experience I would expect from such a prestiges hotel as the Waldorf.

The service itself was very poor. Had to wait around 15minutes before anyone came over to us. Staff made eye contact with you but failed to come over. The experience itself was good and the selection of cakes and sandwiches were lovely. Service was the only thing that let it down.
