We really loved visiting the Lobby Lounge & Bar at the Ritz-Carlton. There is comfortable seating with beautiful views from the tall, wide wall of windows. We didn't eat, but the food and desserts looked delicious. We sat at the bar and had cocktails several times. They had a great selection of bourbons for my husband. I ordered a different... More

The first day we visited, the drinks were delicious and the service and ambiance were great. A second time we went and their Moscow Mule was horrible! You do get amazing views, but almost every luxury hotel lobby in Tokyo has that, so I recommend going more to the Aman, the Mandarin Oriental or the Park Hyatt.

The Ritz Carlton Hotel Tokyo, Lobby lounge and bar.(45F) This is one of the most stunning hotel lounges with bar and an astonishing panoramic view in Tokyo. Very spacious and a relaxed atmosphere. Glad they offered me the seat by the window. The servers are well trained and professional, also very friendly, but not too casual. Very welcoming and attentive.... More

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.

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!!

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
