“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

An excellent meal in the restaurant with exemplary service, cannot be faulted. Yes, it could be considered expensive, especially the chamagne by the glass, but it is The Ritz after all. The ambience is great too, naturally.

In the UK today, good service is hard to find, we expected that it would be very good at the Ritz, however we were suprised just how high the level of service is.
everyone from the Bell Boy to Security was polite and obliging. Very high profile venue, spoke to lots of very happy customers mostly from abroad, what a great advert for Britain.
having had the experiance my wife booked to take her Mother for her 80th she will love it.

Fantastic location, fabulous service with history to match. I stayed in a suite which was very spacious and well appointed. Touches like a welcome suite and complementary champagne were fabulous touches. Its hard to fault.

Loved it. Perfect atmosphere. Classy. Grown up. Beautiful food, relaxing service, just everything you would expect and more from the ritz. Can't wait to go again . So much food is offered, sandwiches, as many as you want, scones with cream and jam, hot desert, cakes, pastries, we were even given a birthday cake for my dad
