The ambiance and service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive and continually refilled our tea pot with hot water. We were able to have a very enjoyable time there. It was not too noisy and there was more than adequate space between the tables. We had a wide variety of sandwiches to select from. I especially enjoyed the sorbet to begin the meal to clean our palettes and the strawberry dessert to end the meal.

I had several expired travelzoo deals which Scarlett Tea Room accepted all of them. I felt this was very generous of them to accept more than one travelzoo deal although they were worth face value. In fact, I was more than delighted.

The yummy scones. The staff there was so pleasant and accommodating.

Parking is limited. I was treating a friend. Since I could not find street parking I went to the public parking garage on Fair Oaks and Green Street. Being it was a Saturday, it was quite a hunt until I finally found a spot. (first 90 min free on parking there.) My friend found a spot on the street. Unfortunately she did not feed the meter enough, and she got a parking ticket ($46). So, bring change to amply feed the meter. The staff there did not rush us at all, so it was a leisurely lunch. But parking enforcement is ever vigilant. We got to her meter 6 minutes late. Huge disappointment.

The place is warm and elegant with live baby grand piano and service was par excellence'... my girlfriend has special gluten free, oil free salt free diet needs and although they had recently changed the lunch menu from what we had seen on line and expected, the waiter gracious and helpful and the Chef actually came out and talked to us and then whipped up something extraordinary (not even on the menu) for us making our experience wonderful! nd and salt free dirt d but the chef literally came

We had fresh peppermint tea and a pot of Earl Grey which had rose pedals in it and it was great! EVERYONE who enjoys exploring old Pasadena oughta check this place out! I know we'll be back for evening High Tea and all the accouterments! Sincerely, Marc A. Medina

Lovely atmosphere, especially liked the live piano player.

We enjoyed the food and our server was lovely - even accommodated my 11 month old! However, we found the sandwichs a little dry as if they'd been made ahead of time en masse for their large tea crowd.

The server! He's always so nice and funny
