Description: Located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the magnificent Ritz Restaurant leaves an indelible impression on all who dine there, making it one of the world's most desirable places to dine. Reflecting a new pride in classic French cuisine made with British produce, the kitchen uses only ingredients that are the finest and freshest available. As you would expect of The Ritz, the service is exemplary. On Saturday nights, The Ritz holds 'Live at The Ritz' - a glamorous dinner dance with a 4-piece live band and a dance floor. Enjoy a delicious four course meal of classic culinary delights prepared with contemporary influences, and then dance the night away. The dress code of The Ritz reflects the ambience and style of the different areas of the hotel. In The Ritz Restaurant and The Palm Court, gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie, with the exception of breakfast; jeans and sportswear are not permitted. Smart casual attire is requested for The Rivoli Bar and The Long Gallery. Please note that sports shoes are not permitted in The Ritz Restaurant, The Rivoli Bar or The Palm Court at any time.

This was the Christmas at the Ritz, dinner and dancing with a band, complete with a versatile chanteur, a pianist and a striking pair of Strictly-standard dancers. But what about the food? Although there was a lot of cross-tasting among our party as each claimed their choice was the best, the general vote went to the Lobster Bisque. A lot... More

An anniversary to cherish, we felt like royalty and had an amazing time. Everything was spectacular from the jasmine tea, to the pianist, who played Kuch Kuch Hota Hai as we left. Thank you :)

We had our breakfast here during our stay. The high ceiling is supported by columns and the whole place is richly finished in gold leaf and stunning French style architecture. In the centre was a huge table on which was set the buffet items (cereals, muffins, meats, cheeses, fruit etc). This was a work of art in itself and a... More

When we arrived the hotel looked beautiful, wonderfully decorated for Christmas! When we arrived at the restaurant reception I handed the voucher over... More

This has all the glamour and "feel good" you would need for a considerable time. The meal -Lobster Bisque, wonderful--Beef Wellington the main component was superb, however, why do they thing a thimbleful of vegetables would be enough to compliment a generous portion of meat? Xmas pud -lovely The service and everything else lived up to expectations

I went to one of their dinner and dance nights where the music was perfect and what seemed like everyone dancing and really enjoying themselves on the dance floor. The atmosphere was amazing, the food was so good, lots of flavours and decent portions,... More

With much excitement we went to London, on 30th October, for lunch at the Ritz - courtesy of a lunch for two voucher that my friends had bought me for my birthday. Walking through the hotel to the restaurant you can tell you are in a 5* hotel, as every member of staff spoke to us, as though they knew... More
