I thought the afternoon experience was okay with the items being good but not particularly interesting or creative. A good standard afternoon tea in general. Service was reasonable.

Our tables were more like cocktail tables and they felt a bit too small to accommodate the stands and teapots. The servers kind of had to be careful placing the stands and helped to rearrange the plates.

Overall, an OK afternoon tea to experience once in Seattle.
