Great view, good drinks, but

We love this incredible lobby bar. You have to understand you're in the Ritz Carlton and looking out at an amazing view, thus the drinks are going to be expensive. This said, the ambiance is elegant, the music usually wonderful, and it all adds up to a great feeling. Worth a visit for sure!!

The cocktails run about 2 times the price as the best places back home, but the view is phenomenal and they do *not* rush you at all, so you can linger over your drink and enjoy the views, the music (live after 8p), and just relax. The burger is good, not great, but shareable. Pleasant, unobtrusive service.

Pasta Bolognese and Lobster Bisque are good options here. Champagne, wine and Scotch on the rocks while enjoying the life band in the evening, a great relaxing moment to share with your loved one or family and friends.

Unfortunately the Ritz Carlton Tokyo known for the location and views should really be known for their 15% service charge for very poor service. Taking 15 minutes to get a drink, and then having to chase down a waitress for another round while paying 15% service charge is not the level of service vs. charge let alone it is the... More

For the "bar"part.The mediocre cocktails and $1000 flashy drinks aren't good value at all but coming here for lunch or afternoon tea is a GREAT plan - it's affordable for excellent quality fare with the best view in Tokyo. Beautiful, Seasonal cakes and the sushi, burgers and soba noodles are outstanding. Very modern Japanese decor with comfortable chairs and a... More

The Ritz Carlton Tokyo in Akasaka is my absolute favorite afternoon tea in the world. Why does this place rank number one in my book?? Usually people would except London or Hong Kong to house the best afternoon tea/high tea, however that is not true. The selection of tea really stands out at Tokyo RC. After you make your tea...

Gorgeous hotel with good staff and huge rooms! Well located although mainly we took taxis which were easy to manage as the concierge would brief the driver in Japanese if you don't speak any

Well a last minute decision to go to Tokyo meant we couldn't stay at the mandarin oriental as usual for New Years. We decided to try the Ritz as a friend had recommended it to us. It's ok, not bad, definitively not great, but ok. Bad points: Embarrassingly I had to put tape over a small tattoo on my shoulder... More
