Carol M.
This was my first time at TeaLula for the afternoon tea experience. It was soooo cute inside. We were lucky to get a table for two window-side in an adorable nook that made the experience inviting yet we had privacy for conversations. You each get your own individual teapot with your choice of several teas that have been paired with the menu of the day. They change their menu monthly so it will be fun to go back and enjoy new treats. Everything was prepared to perfection. The scones were particularly delicious being petite and not the usual heaviness some scones have. The owner and server provided us with fun tidbits about the venue. You can change your tea choice as the experience goes on if you want. You tilt the lid of the teapot and the server will stop by. So unique. We will definitely return. Thank you.
Business Response:

Elegant without being snooty; everyone pleasant and attentive to our wants/needs without being patronizing; tea service quietly classy; tea was delicious. Food likewise delicious, although the little scones were too hard. Value--worth the price for the experience, but need to offer a bit more food.

Truly enjoyed the experience. The teas were very good. While the menu selection were very good as well and we loved the presentation, thought $55pp was a bit pricey in my opinion. Cost was comparable to tea time at the Palm court at The Drake on one mag mile…

The high tea experience at Tealula was a delightful.

The tiered trays presented beautifully, with delicious sandwiches, two scones, and delectable pastries, each bite more delicious that the last. Highly recommend this experience.

The town of Park Ridge is blessed to have this loving and kind establishment and so am I! The food was excellent from the first bite to the last, and the welcoming service is a delight. If you have not tried the high tea you are missing out on a wonderful experience. Thanks to Sheila and Fred. Bunny Hughes

More comfortable seating . Would love to have a chai option at the tea. (Minor) loved that we could try different teas and they were bottomless. Delightful. We’ll be back!

What a lovely experience. A little gem in Park Ridge. The staff was attentive and the tea service was absolutely delicious! Loved the tiny attention to detail from the reserved sign at the table to the bday embellishment on top of our tray. Can’t wait to visit again, soon!!

Genevieve O.
Our overall experience was very nice, my only suggestion would be to greet the guests upon arrival sooner. We sat at out table for at least 8 minutes before someone greeted us or even gave us water. Everything after that was lovely. Thank you
Business Response:
Thanks for leaving a review of our tea room, Genevieve! We're happy that you had a nice visit and gave us a solid 9/10. Your wait for a greeting and water was not typical... and definitely a behavior/service touchpoint that TeaLula can improve. Your feedback is not only important but much appreciated. We hope that we can earn that extra star from you next time. Your support means the world to us, and we can't wait to have you back in our cozy tea room. We'll make sure your next experience goes above and beyond your expectations. Thanks again for choosing our tea room!

Heather M.
The food and tea were delicious! The service was just okay. It seemed a little short staffed so things like empty water glasses and having to repeatedly ask for more water kept happening. The girls were working hard but it was full and only 2 people for all those tables. I know illnesses are up after the holidays so I’ll come back but that was just one area to work on : )
Business Response:
Heather, thank you for your rating and feedback. It's important to us to know where we can improve and we strive to give the best service we can. We appreciate your kind candor and for allowing us to serve you again in the future.

Keri D.
Our server was great, but she was very busy so I had to flag her down to order more tea. The food was very good overall, however the crab and shrimp sandwich was very fishy. Also, we would have liked bigger scones and more scone toppings. A chocolate dessert would have been nice also. Otherwise we had a great experience!!
Business Response:
Keri, thank you for your kind candor! Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we appreciate your remarks about service and food. Our staff is dedicated to exceptional service and food preparation so we take your words to heart. Your support means the world to us, and we can't wait to have you back in our tea room. We'll make sure your next experience goes above and beyond your expectations.
