Tea for Two Cedarhurst

I had dinner with the family at Tea for Two in Cedarhurst. They had a sign on the door and a note attached to every menu saying how this is a soft opening, and to please be patient with them.
Smart move putting that on the menu, but I"m still not sure i'd go back.
We were a table of 8. they brought 6 rolls to the table. Huh? We had to ask a couple of times for more rolls.

It took a LONG time for the server to come take our order and then a long time for the food to come out. The food was pretty good. Appetizer portions VERY small.. Our food was not warm enough, too salty and rather small portions for the prices. (Pescado isn't cheaper but their portions are bigger.)

The decor was beautiful.

        Does the 5T really need another dairy place?

      2. We ate there recently. High prices, terrible service and the food was not great. Save your money.
        sushi is terrible and 2-3 x higher price then other restaurants
        they forgot 2 of our items and took 45 min to bring out an orger of motzarella sticks.

        1. The food is mediocre at best. The service is HORRENDOUS! You should not have main course dishes brought to your table 50 minutes apart, and then not cooked properly or even what you ordered. If you still want to go experience this culinary disaster i suggest that you hurry because I have a feeling they will not be in business very long. And I for one will not miss them!

            tea for 2 in brooklyn has closed-perhaps they will follow

          2. Meanwhile, T Fusion (Tea for Two's meat counterpart) looks like it's getting ready to open in the old Zomick's location.

              FYI: That "Fusion"-called restaurant in Cedarhurst has nothing to do with T Fusion.
