      I went to Maria's for the first time today with my 2 daughters, sister, and mother in law. We had a wonderful time. The food is excellent and beautifully served, the service friendly and prompt. As a tea room, I was disappointed in the tea selection (various bags of Bigelow, Ashby's and Lipton). You make a bag selection from a sampler tray, and then a cup and little hot water carafe is brought to the table. My daughters got their chocolate milk in a tiny teapot with teacup and saucer, which they loved. So despite the non-impressive tea selection, the restaurant itself was knock-your-socks-off great, and we will return!

      I have been to Maria's a few times over the years. Their Monte Cristo is fantastic! A couple months ago I took my daughter for a 'tea party' with Mom. She LOVED it! She had the 3 tier tray of goodies and chocolate milk in her own tea pot and cup. We are going again in the next week to take her little friend along with her. Thanks for making such a great place for some mom-daugher time!

      I am a student, and I ate at the tea room a couple of times, to try a different atmosphere, then the normal college scene. The food was very good. The service was exemplary, and I thought the prices were fair considering the quality and freshness of the food. One thing that I have gone back for, are the homemade pickles. They are delicious! I also went back to the gift shop to purchase some of the unique teas, as gifts for my mother and grandmother. The experience was all about the customer, versus many food chains/establishments, where it’s all about the profit exclusively.

      This was my first visit to Maria's. My granddaughter had been there for a birthday party and kept saying I just had to go and try it. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. My daughter and I had the quiche special and it was the best I've ever had along with lobster bisque, apple almond salad and muffin. Every bite was incredible. My granddaughter had the high tea sandwiches for children and it was served with milk in a teapot and cup that changed color when the milk was poured. This was a wonderful experience and I will definitely be returning!!!

      I had the Tuna Melt Panini--it was very good--bread was a little over done. Would prefer something other than plain potato chips with the sandwich. The fruit cup was good. The desserts were very tasty--I split a Key Lime tart and the carmel apple pie with my friend.

      I love Maria's!!! I go with co-workers as often as possible - we're hooked! Was finally able to take my mom and she's a fan now too!

      We dropped into Maria's Tea Room without a reservation today, Friday, and found that all the tables were taken, but we were offered immediate seating at the little bar area.

      The food was a bit slow in reaching us, due to the full capacity of the restaurant, but it was worth the wait! Both of us were thrilled with our meals. My salad was the best one I'd had in ages, grilled chicken, red/yellow peppers, mandarin oranges, strawberries, tortilla strips, candied almond slices, and an amazing poppyseed dressing. The grilled veggie pannini my friend had she declared to be just as good. We'd definitely return!

      We didn't have tea, but the site is making me choose a rating, so I'll say excellent, but who knows!

      Isn't Robert Taylor, Maria Taylor's husband? I'm sure he's enjoyed himself time and time again, but my experience wasn't as enjoyable. He probably gets preferential treatment. The food is mediocre at best, the tea is run-of-the-mill, the service is 'worm and frendly'. Try a different 'tea room' and you'll find that they're far superior.

      I have visited Maria's Tea Room time and time again and I have enjoyed myself each and every time.

      The food is as good as it gets.And the servis was worm and frendly.
