Went to the tea at the Pierre this afternoon and was somewhat disappointed. The room was beautiful, but both the service and food left something to be desired. Sandwiches were not fresh. Bread tasted like it had been made several hours ago and just sat in the fridge and then taken out. Even a little too cold. Scones were dry and not warm. Desserts were OK. Several times we poured our own tea. Waiter brought us the check way too early, we were clearly not even close to finishing. We had not even finished the sandwiches and the other 2 tiers were completely full. He said that he was leaving soon since his shift was over and wanted us to pay him then. Aren't there other waiters who could have given us the check at the appropriate time and given him his tip? Really not happy and won't be back.
