It was truly wonderful. I can’t wait to go back.
Tea was lovely!
Brought a friend here as a surprise for their birthday, and it was perfection. Service was excellent, staff was on point, food was served in a timely manner (and very scrumptious), ambiance is perfect to unwind, and the overall afternoon tea experience made our day.
Note: If you let them know in advance of the occasion, they will add that little special touch to make it personal.
Definitely recommend, and would 100% come again, in fact- we would make it a tradition!
I would highly recommend The Courtyard Tea Room for a special occasion. It's pricey but, in my opinion well wroth it.
It was a great experience because it's so unusual for Boston - the ambience, the tea concept and the fashion show. We loved it and would do it again. I like that it's not well advertised. One slight slip up. I told the staff beforehand that it was a birthday. They promised to bring a desseet with a candle. That didn't happen, but that didn't spoil anything for us.
Cynthia was our lovely server. She made it a most relaxing and enjoyable experience! The tea room was beautiful and the food was very nice too!
And, we were lucky enough to watch a men’s fashion show by designer Daniel Hernandez!
We had such a great time!
Birthday afternoon tea. Food and atmosphere wonderful. Would definitely go again.
I love high tea and I was excited to learn of two venues at Boston's historic and majestic public library. The 2 rooms are very different from each other. We had tea in the Courtyard Tea Room which was bright and light and elegant. I want to go back and try the Map Room which is dark and cozy. We had a such a good time that we lingered for a long time and eventually the manager had to ask us to leave so they could seat the next group!
The Tea Room was a delight. Service was fantastic everyone was genuinely kind and happy to serve us. We were in no way rushed. I found our time together relaxing and enjoyable. Staff didn’t even bat an eye when I asked if they would take a picture for us. The food was such a treat from savories to sweets; an anticipated journey for the taste buds (as anyone who frequents teas knows) This was our first visit and we’ve already discussed returning. There’s an added something - enjoying tea in such a historical place in the city; the ambiance was classic which made the tea taste even better! Side note: there was a line to check in for our reservation which was a bit confusing. The door was marked Map Room not Courtyard Room but it was discovered you pass through one room to get to the other. All check in is by entrance of Map Room. Complimentary coat check was a nice touch. If you’re curious, do it, the experience alone won’t disappoint.
Everything was great at the Tea Room the staff was extremely nice, and everything from Tea to food came out at a nice pace. So you didn't feel rushed but you weren't left waiting to eat.
Great Sunday afternoon tea in a stunning room. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The tea different and wonderful. We highly recommend the Tea Room and look forward to trying the bar some evening.
Wonderful experience! We will definitely be making this an annual tradition.
Excellent!!! Nice place to be when you’re in Boston!
I have had many an afternoon tea, and this was absolutely one of the best! The ambiance was charming, the waiters lovely, and the food was incredible. The ‘sandwiches’ were a real treat (not something I usually say!). A true 5 star experience.
For the price, the food was definitely decent but I expected perfection...one of the cookies was way overbaked and they never offered to refill my tea water, so the tea became extremely strong (and I love strong tea but this was extreme). Also, should be a 2 hr seating instead of 90 minutes for the price.
Great experience. Lovely set up and good food!
So much fun with a bonus fashion show.
Lovely atmosphere. We were treated to one of their fashion shows during our seating. That was fun.
very nice tea in a beautiful setting. was enjoyed by all!
We had a terrific time. Food was great and we were v pleased that my daughter was served a vegetarian assortment of sandwiches. I love the tearoom and the spot by the window. Everything was terrific. Soft background music would have been the icing.
The Boston Publc Library Tea Room is a absolutely magical. It’s one of the only places you can go for a traditional high tea in the Boston area and it’s just a lovely experience. Definitely the perfect place to go for a special occasion or just a special treat.
Beautiful setting for an afternoon tea!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at tea! The food was delicious and so was the tea. I would recommend this for anyone looking to have a fun afternoon with a loved one.
An elegant experience!
The atmosphere was lovely and the food and tea were delicious! I do feel like it is very overpriced but perhaps you are paying for the experience, not just the food. Would recommend for a very special occasion.
My family and I have always loved afternoon tea at the BPL. The room is beautiful and the food excellent Our one complaint is that they switched from British- to American-style scones. British scones are light and fluffy. If I wanted an American scone, I’d just eat a hockey puck. They should switch back.
