We came here to introduce my niece to a high tea experience. Unfortunately, the menu was under construction and some of the food choices were unavailable. As a vegetarian, there were minimal options. However, they substituted the chicken that came with my salad with lots of fruit. The tea itself was delicious with lots of choices. The restaurant is very... More

I've tried a number of afternoon tea places in Los Angeles and always have to use High Tea Cottage as the one they have to measure up to. So far, there is no comparison, in terms of value, ambience, taste, presentation, quality and most importantly the way tea is served. Their price is reasonable during regular days, but the real...

I don't say this lightly; do NOT patronize this establishment. I've now had the opportunity to visit twice and both experiences were beyond terrible. For the sake of being fair, I will break this down into categories. Food: The value of the food you'll receive is poor. On our first visit, we had a problem with the freshness of our... More

My Mom and I love this place. We go about once a month. One of the things I love the most is the service. They are all so wonderful . The food is so good. Going back in 3 weeks

Too many choices both in menu options and teas. It is a perfect high tea. We make a point of going as often as we can.

It is a very lovely tea in a cute cottage with good service. Traditional 'tea' food fare with sweets and savory sandwiches but for the price I'd prefer to have a more grand setting such as the Four Seasons Biltmoe in Santa Barbara, CA or the Ritz Hotel. So compare and do your homework as to what you want out... More

We were there with an alumni group of about 25. Service was fantastic, food good: three types of sandwiches, two scones, mini pastries. Don't know if they would have refilled plates -- no one asked. They refilled tea cups often. Perhaps because we were a group, we had only 3 choice of teas; hard for 25 people. Very kind folks,... More

Don't let the atmosphere of this place fool you. The service was terrible. Our reservations were at 2:00 pm but we were not seated until almost 2:30. Our hostess never came to our table for at least 15 minutes. Once we ordered our tea and food, the tea never came for 25 minutes. The food came about 35 minutes after... More

Overall it is a cute place, but Watch out for dishonest owner and waitresses! My bill was $98 and because service was not that great I only gave them $10 tip which totaled $108. When I received my credit card statement I noticed that I was charged $118. I called the restaurant and asked them to explain to me why... More
