I went here with my mother and mother-in-law for lunch. what a great place to enjoy lunch, tea, service, and each other! We were very impressed with the food. And just as impressed with Toni, (the owner, and our server). What a delight. Don't expect this to be a fast food experience. Give yourself ample time to enjoy the experience...this is not a fast food joint.

Pros: Welcomed Break from my ofted TOO busy life

I have had lunch and high tea here several times, and have always enjoyed both the food and the wait staff. The food has always been fresh, well prepared and well presented. They were also very willing to accommodate special diet requests - such as making an omelet with 3 whites and 1 yolk, and replacing the hash browns with fruit. I plan to take my 4 year old for afternoon tea - I am sure she will enjoy all of the lovely treats, the tea and the ambience. As to the other reviews written, I admit I have not been during the lunch rush hour so can not comment on the time to eat when it is crowded. But at off peak it was wonderful.

Pros: Nice ambience, quiet, ofers high tea

Cons: small parking lot

I went there with a friend on Sunday 12/16/07. They had a full house. There was a table that opened but we had to wait for them to get it ready for us. Took them 25 minutes to get the table bused and ready for us. We waited another 45 minutes once we were seated to even put in our order, and 30 minutes later we still didnt have food. We finally left and told the owner how dissappointed we were. They should have offered us free pastries or something to compensate for the time while we waited for our food. This place is not equiped to handle a full house. If you go, I recommend going when no one else is there because its just the owner and a friend that are waiting on everyone (and cooking I believe), and clearly they dont have the experience or staff to handle the capacity they are supposed to be able to serve. We wont go back.

Pros: Cute place

Cons: Inexperienced staff and super slow service

I co-hosted a shower at Taste the Moment. I requested cake for dessert, and the restaurant accomodated the request by providing an ordinary party cake from an out-sourced bakery (quite a departure from the desserts typically served). However, I was charged the full menu price for each slice of party cake ($7 per slice or $140 total). I did not cause a scene at the restaurant, but rather discretely contacted the restaurant directly the next day to voice my concerns. I have posted parts of the owner's snide response following:

"Found your note today, and frankly am totally confused as to what exactly it is you want or expect of this Restaurant? Your note is indeed perplexing and disturbing. We are wondering how it was you made the decision to choose our Restaurant in the first place? Have you been here before? You would have seen all your concerns addressed on the printed menus, if you had.

You asked for a ?cake?. Toni agreed to your request, however Toni had to take time away from the Restaurant to drive to our purveyor West of Boeing Field in Seattle! I wonder how many Restaurants would do that for you with minimum notice? We normally require the menu to be ?poured in concrete? at least 48 hours before, but Toni wanted to accommodate you.

If you had a specific budget; It was your responsibility to work that out before your arrival; Not a day or so after the event! Regardless of what you ?expected?; you are the one responsible for setting any limits. You looked at the bill before the party arrived and paid for it in advance. We could have very easily ?pulled? the 2 cakes and served them at our dinner hour!

Remember; This is NOT ?Denny?s?! Your party used over 60 dishes, 40+ glasses, the Tea Pots were filled free of charge 3 or more times, and it took well over 2 hours to clean and prepare the tables for the next guests, do all the dishes and serve other people as they came in after you left. All in a day?s work."

Sincerely, The Owner

We had a large party for a ladies brunch and the staff at Taste the Moment were excellent! They were quick and friendly. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect. Thank you!
