You walk through the hotel past many gorgeous sitting rooms and the Hemingway bar to get to this wonderful restaurant. We sat in a glass enclosed garden room that was wonderfully light and beautifully appointed -- but not fussy. We had "brunch" which is very weird in Paris, but to accommodate all the members of the party, you could have... More

We had high expectations for our dinner at L'Espadon, but they were exceeded in all ways. The renovated dining room is more beautiful than ever. We enjoyed every single dish of the tasting menu. Nicolas Salle put on a true magic show. What a wonderful combination of perfectly executed dishes in very exciting presentations. Service was fantastic. Especially Estelle Touzet... More

I do love Ritz breakfast! An omelette is the best one, all over the world! The service is also very good here!

This is a very classic restaurant. The prices are very high but it is a once in a lifetime experience. On Y go there if you have lots of money.

It is hugely expensive, by far the most money we have ever spent on a meal. Worth every penny as an expensive treat. It isn't just the food and service it is a whole different dining experience. The staff all treat you like royalty, service like nothing else in the world.

One of the most memorable dinners I have ever enjoyed. The multi course degustation bathed in a constant flow of champagne, coupled with attentive, gracious, impecable service made it so. The remodeling of the Ritz called for a visit. Dinner at L'espadon made it very special for my daughter and I. Congratulations !

You will go to this restaurant for the pedigree, the service, the location and the setting. You will not be disappointed. Very classical setting and decor despite the update/renovation. Beautiful room with the mirrors and the centerpiece. The service is extremely helpful and friendly (also the table next to us who did not speak french was treated equally nicely). As... More
