Bought a voucher from Travelzoo $25 Afternoon Tea for two. 3 course meal. The Service: Walk in the restaurant, the host stand is right next to the front door. They really maximize the store space and put as many table/chairs they can. One table is only a step away from the front door. One table is right next to the... More

We went on Valentines' day in the afternoon for the tea service and we were very happy. Service was attentive, scones were exceptional with lemon curd (not too gooey), fresh sandwiches, hot tea and fruit. Dessert didn't pop but it was nice enough. Ask to sit in the "fancier room" to get more ambiance. The other room is a bit... More

The food was delicious but too pricy and the service was lousy. I went around 2:30 afternoon and it was apparently the staff’s lunch time. We could see them standing inside the counter and eating. That's not the scene I wanted to see in a supposedly sophisticated tea room. I would rather go to the Rose Tea room in Huntington... More

Nice for the upper crust type tea. food great tea wonderful. This place and Chado Tea Rooms Pasadena are the best in town . Chado guys seems to know more about the teas they sell. But you'll be happy at either place, Scarlet better room and feels fancy. Chado more relaxed better tea choices .

We really enjoyed our High Tea experience at the Scarlet Tea Room. The restaurant is elegantly furnished and decorated with crystal chandeliers and rich drapery fabrics. The menu has a variety of lunch choices as well as a 3 or 5 course afternoon tea. We used a Living Social coupon which gave us two services for the price of one.... More

This is the first time that we went to this tea room. We saw their ad on the newspaper and we just want to have a try. We went into their restaurant and have been sitting there for 10 minute. Nobody came to serve us. We have to go to the cashier asking them for menu. A lady asked us... More

The Scarlet Tea Room is located on a tree lined street in Pasadena. It is a charming little place - nicely decorated and tables are pleasantly arranged so that you don't feel like you are on top of the adjacent tables. They offer a 3 or 5 course Afternoon Tea, mini tea and a wide variety of regular lunch offerings.... More

The ladies in my family and I love coming here for our lady days. The staff is great and there's a nice selection of teas and tea sandwiches. The only thing is that is you come on a Sunday they only serve their tea menu. So if you are hungry then you'll be a bit disappointed. But you do have... More

My daughter took me here for my birthday close to Christmas. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and was more than beautiful near the holidays. She ordered the English tea and I ordered the egg salad sandwich but we shared. The tea was lovely and the sandwich yummy. My daughter's soup was also very good. You can get other sandwiches...

The tea room is quite lovely, quaint and the food was good, to a bit pricey. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful... I work in the area, but I wont go back... we were a party of 2 and were using a groupon certificate. when we completed out lunch, the manager calculated the bill in such a convoluted way and charged...
