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 Friday and Saturday nights, The Ritz holds 'Live at The Ritz' - a glamorous dinner dance with a 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. Reflecting the elegant nature of the hotel's architecture The Ritz London has a dress code in different areas of the hotel as follows: Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie for afternoon tea in The Palm Court and for lunch and dinner in The Ritz Restaurant. In all other areas of the hotel (The Ritz Restaurant breakfast service, The Rivoli Bar, The Long Gallery) and The Ritz Club, smart casual attire is suitable. Please note that trainers or sportswear are not permitted in any of the hotel or Club's restaurants or bars.

“Stunning setting,stunning food,stunning service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

My wife and I had an amazing meal here as hotel guests and cannot remember having such a wonderful experience.
The service is 1st class.Its interesting that most of the serving staff are Italian and do an amazing job.Discrete and polite all without fuss.
The food was stunning.
My wife's Beef filet was cooked to perfection.
My Dover Sole....will I ever order it again because it will always be compared to the magnificent dish I had at the Ritz!
Desserts completed the perfect night.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW via mobile

The whole experience was wonderful from being greeted and taken to the table, the impeccable service, the seriously delicious food, the lavish decor, the atmosphere, to excellent wines. I keep coming back here because the food is so good so have eaten here a few times with partner or friends for dinner or lunch and it has always been excellent. The dinner dance at Christmas was also just as good as always and a lot of fun. I have tried The a la carte and the tasting menu and it has all been wonderful.

great place no kids running amok around the tables, no beer guzzling characters, a nice touch of real class, where the use of the forks and knives are de rigueur, beautiful meals in everyway

“Breathtaking, delicious food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Beautiful Decor, a real piece of history brought to life the moment you enter the building. Pure classic Luxury at its finest. We started with drinks in the Rivoli Bar, Seated on a table for two and served nuts, olives and biscuits alongside with our cocktails which got re-filled when we were running low - Very morish! not long after we made our way through to the Restaurant where we were seated to another table for two. Gorgeous table to sit by, with the sculpture made out of pure gold right behind is, couldn't of felt more luxurious in a restaurant. I enjoyed looking at the wine list the Sommiler brought over, having studied wine myself it was great to see a huge variety of fine wines. The food here was the best food i have eaten in years!, every taste down to a T. Hats off to the chef !. The only downside to the evening was towards the end. I had pre-ordered a Birthday cake for my partner with a message on the cake which never came out. I mentioned this to the waiter and he came round with a pen and pad to which i had to write down the message in front of my guest. I let this slide, i didn't wish for it to ruin the evening, but then to see it on my bill when i had paid for it was unacceptable for The Ritz This is a massive communication error which should have been communicated from Reservations, to the Hostess, to the waiter and to the kitchen. I know how hospitality works and know how important it is to make sure a special occasion is NOT MISSED.

I did love my experience here, i will be back again, but maybe not for a special occasion as it didn't seem like anybody knew about it. The service from the staff was outstanding on the evining but i'm putting poor as the special occasion was forgotten and nothing was done to compensate even after emailing my feedback.

“A must for every foodie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

During our stay at the Ritz, my Nan & I received complimentary breakfast.
I thought i'd stepped back in time, what beautiful ambience and such a wide selection of breakfast items.
Freshly brewed coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice at your finger tips.
If your lucky you may even spot a celebrity or two for a spot of sunday breakfast ;)
