      Just and FYI US Grant only does tea on holidays. I have only been to tea here once before and was very disappointed. But I do plan to go back because it is a beautiful hotel and I really want to like it.

      was not satisfied with this place.the teas were in bags,there was only one container for sugar to be shared among all the tables. the waiter would disappear,so i had to go get my own sugar and other condiments as well.for the price,it was definitely not worth it.there are better tea rooms out there with a lot better choices and service.

      I have to disagree with these other reviews. The US Grant has been one of my favorite places for tea in San Diego since my first experience there 10 years ago. However, this cannot be said since the renovation. I was eagerly awaiting the re-opening of this hotel in order to have tea again. The lobby WAS absolutely stunning, but the tea, highly disappointing. There were no scones...I can't get over these places that serve tea without scones. The sandwiches were okay, the desserts were lovely. However, we did indulge in a nice martini to begin with, but then after waiting more than an hour, had to ASK for the tea. Yes, tea bags (blech) in a tiny pot. We went through it and asked for more tea...We were brought more hot water (about 20 minutes later), but no new tea bags. And we had to hunt for our server multiple times. I wouldn't mind the expense if the experience was worth it, but $120 for two people was definitely not worth it. I will not be back and I am aorely disappointed. It has been replaced at the top of my favorites list by Tea Upon Chatsworth and the Aubrey Rose.

      The ladies of my family go to 'TEA' at least once a year and we have been to just about all the tea places in San Diego. We found the US Grant to be one of the best. We loved sitting in the sofas and chairs, the tea sandwiches were some of the best we have eaten, and the piano player was a hit with all of my nieces. The only complaint we had was that they used tea bags and did not have individual tea pots. We did solve the problem by asking them to just put the tea bags into the pots of water. Although it wasn't as elegant as tea pots it served us well as we drink a lot of tea. A truly elegant place to have tea.

      Took mom and 2nd mom and friend for Mother's Day on Saturday, 12 May 2007; we had a fabulous time at Tea N Tinis. Had the Red Car Martini which was amazing and strong! The tea although in bags was organic and were specialty gourmet blends. There were no staples in the bags and the tea was loose. The food was incredible and the desserts as well. We had to practically be rolled out of the lobby to our cars in valet. Highly recommend!

      The only thing I can add to Tricia's review is that the US Grant has reopened with a spectacular $52 million renovation. They have a new 'twist' on afternoon tea, it's called Tea and 'Tini....ck out their website.
