Reservation Policies:

  • Reservations are required for any food service.  A minimum of 24 hours notice is needed (subject to availability).  Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate walk-ins. It is a good idea to have more than one date/time in mind in case your first desired spot is not available. Please call us at (425) 686-7670 to make a reservation, or click on our "contact" link.  Bear in mind that we are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. If you call when we are closed we may not get your message until Wednesday.

  • If you are making a reservation for several guests, please have your guests read these policies since you'll be providing a credit card guarantee for their seats as well (we don't want you to be left "holding the bag" ).  Here is the link to share with them:   https://www.grahamsroyaltea.com/tea-seatings

  • A CREDIT CARD GUARANTEE IS REQUIRED WHEN PLACING A RESERVATION.  Guests may cancel or decrease the number in their party up until 72 hours prior to their reservation.  Cancellations and/or changes made within the 72 hour window prior to the reservation will be assessed a $20 per person fee.  For no-shows or last minute cancellations, the full price of the seating will be charged (regardless of reason).  Food is prepared specifically for you and will then be discarded if you have not cancelled with adequate notice. Proper notice also gives us the opportunity to call the next person on our wait list.

  • Menu choices must be pre-ordered. "Tea Sets" (the configuration of High Tea) are to be ordered for each guest at time of reservation and you may order a different set type for each person if desired . Sorry - we do not offer ala-carte or "tea only" options.   Please see our menu below for current offerings.  We do not need the soup, salad or tea blend preference at time of reservation, just the set Tea Set for each guest. 

  • Food Allergies/Dietary Restrictions: We are not a Gluten Free or Nut Free establishment. We do offer a few options for those who are sensitive to gluten and can accommodate some vegetarian substitutions. All dietary restrictions  or substitutions must be noted at time of reservation, we will not be able to accommodate changes/special requests upon arrival. We do not offer vegan options

  • Reservations are for a specific time and seatings are 90 minutes in total duration (from time of reservation regardless of late arrival).  All persons in the party must to be present to be seated. If you are running late, please let us know. Unfortunately, it will shorten your table time so please try to arrive a just prior to your designated time. We strive to have everything ready for you at the time of your reservation.  If you arrive significantly early, we may still be preparing and may not be ready to seat you until  your reserved time.

  • Split checks and/or payments may be divided up to 4 ways. Individual checks/payments not available for parties of 5 or more.

  • 18% gratuity is added to parties of 5 or more.

  • Reservations for Tea Seaatings (non-private Afternoon Tea Parties a.k.a High Tea) are accepted for a maximum of 8 people.  For parties larger than 8, a private party booking is required (please see the Parties section of our website).  

  • We accept Tea Seating bookings a maximum of 30 days in advance.  

  • Families are welcome. But, please keep these factors in mind: We ask one adult accompaniment for every two children 12 and under as constant supervision by a responsible adult in your party will be required. In an effort to create a place of respite, and because ladies of all ages come here to enjoy a bit of child-free time, for Tea Seatings, our minimum age is 3 years old. This requirement applies to infants, toddlers and newborns.  No offense is intended and we thank you for your kind understanding.   If you wish to have a Tea Party with many children or children under 3 present, we will be happy to help you plan a private event where you'll have the facility to yourselves and freedom of movement and noise levels can be to your desire.  However, because other guests are present during our Afternoon Tea Seatings, children will need to remain seated with their party for the duration of the reservation with exception of the designated Gown Room usage time. If children are to be present, please read our Gown Room Guidelines under our Policies sections.  High chairs and/or booster seats are not available.  We have coloring pages and crayons available to use at your table upon request. 

  • No Outside food is permitted unless previously arranged due to food allergies.
  • Because we are a small, intimate space with other customers present during Tea Seatings, outside decor (balloons, centerpieces, etc.) are not permitted. Please remember our tea tables are small.  Once tea and food have been brought out, there is not much room left on the table.  We ask that you keep noisy activities (i.e. gift opening, etc.) to a minimum as to not disturb other patrons.  If you'd like to have a celebration with these options, please speak with us regrading a private party booking.
