Marvelous room, service, and food just as one would expect from the Ritz. Each course was leisurely served with explanations of ingredients and cooking techniques and careful wine recommendations.

Impeccable interior design in classic chateau style. You can dine in the main room or in the atrium. The food and the service are impeccable: all dishes cooked to perfection and with a bit of creativity. Prices are nearly affordable at lunch but slightly prohibitive in the evening. Come here for a special occasion to enjoy gastronomy at its best.

I think my mistake was just having dinner the night before at L'Epicure. We started with a appetizer that ended up being served 3 different ways and dragged on. My main course was very fishy as was my wife's. I definitely would not be back here.

My family and I ate here while staying at the Ritz (for dinner and breakfast), but I am just going to review the dinner. Heads up to anyone eating here: the chef does everything in courses of 3 (hot, cold, and regular). So, instead of getting 3 courses, we all ended up getting 7. I thought it was a really... More

On a hazy Sunday morning in August, we dragged our tired tourist bodies out of bed and set-off across Paris to the Ritz, for my 40th birthday breakfast. Although we weren't staying at the Ritz, they treated us with the utmost respect and professionalism from the moment we walked in. There were seven of us, including two kids under ten,... More

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
