“Depressingly average - and clearly uninformed by knowledge of an actual afternoon tea”

High Tea at the Four Seasons
Reviewed 17 April 2016

Rather disappointing and would not go again or take guests. The actual tea is held in 'Verandah' - which sounds lovely but isn't actually terribly nice or appropriate for an attractive afternoon tea - shiny indoor heavy red seats and no table cloths- and it is right next to the bar so there is lots of noise. It has small crowded tables adorned by large clumsy water glasses and mammoth cutlery choices - you would have thought we were going to tuck into a bison or two rather than butter a scone. There was so little room on the table for four of us I thought we might have to put some things on the floor but we actually moved them onto a nearby ledge (without any help). The scones were nice but looked as though someone had sat on them (it's not a scone if it's flat and looks as if someone stood on it) and there was clearly no quality control about how they were presented at all. Some of the pasty choices seemed a little tired although the strawberry tarts were very good. Lots of tea choices but a ludicrously large teaspoons seemed a bit odd - and we wished we had not ordered champagne as that simply made the table even more crowded. The staff were fine but not particulary interested and really all in all - it was the kind of experience that was far more on a par with a Marks and Spencers Café rather than the Dorchester. Avoid.

—Very nice set up with lots of delicious items to sample as a part of the $35 per person cost.
—The service was okay.
—Unfortunately, after my first cup of tea, the tea was steeped too long and had a bad taste. Only surprised because if hosting afternoon tea is your speciality, I would think that you would figure out a way to handle that situation.

High tea at the Four Seasons compares favorably with some of the world's best high teas (well those that we've had!).

The venue is serene - no mean feat in the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas and right next door to the Mandalay Bay gaming hall.

Service superb - finger food sublime - atmosphere nicely up market - price not outrageous.

Well worth the effort of travelling down to the end of the strip for this one.

We'd just remind you that this is a "high tea" and not a simple "afternoon tea" or "Devonshire tea". This is meant to be enjoyed in muted tones. Four Seasons makes this not only possible but positively enjoyable.

I go here once a year to celebrate the birthdays of two friends. I am usually with a group of 8 to 11 ladies and the staff makes us feel like we are their most prized guests. The high tea is comparable to ones that I experienced at the Hong Kong Peninsula. If you call ahead to make reservations for high tea you can request to customize somewhat. Our group prefers more savory items than sweet ones and they always accommodate our requests. Definitely a special treat and worth the price.

We took our daughter for her 21st Birthday and had quite a lovely time. The food was delicious, although the portions were quite small so my husband left hungry (something that never happens at other tea houses). In fact, we went to Stripburger about an hour after we left because we all weren't full. Overall the experience was very nice and relaxing, they just need to increase the amount of sandwiches they give you.
