    The Ritz is always perfect
    My 4th stay with the Ritz London. The loyalty the Ritz shows repeat guests is first rate. The food is world class, the black table downstairs in the private casino is fun and the Vesper Martini at the bar is the perfect 10/10 for a martini.
    It is the perfect location for sightseeing and for meetings. Walking distance to St james palace and to Piccadilly.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our Champagne Afternoon Tea yesterday. Beautiful surroundings accompanied by lovely sandwiches/desserts and great choice of teas. All served by amazing staff which were always there making sure everything was just perfect. The atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. We wish all the staff a merry christmas and happy new year.

        Have a Blitz at The Ritz! Exquisite in Every Way
        Utterly outstanding service, ambiance, foods, and wine.
        Far better to save and spoil others and yourself by going to The Ritz at least every month (preferably weekly!) rather than eating average often.

          Amazing Class matched by Amazing Staff.
          We stayed for our 30th anniversary in November (2018) we had a great time, the food was exquisite and the service exemplary. Location is fantastic, Hyde Park and Harrods are a 10 minute walk away.
          I would go for the valet parking, it only costs about £60, saves all that hassle on central London parking.

            Afternoon Tea
            Service was superb. Excellent Sandwiches, good scones and cakes.
            They got a little confused this was bought as a gift for our 50th Wedding Anniversary with a special cake. They pianist played Happy Birthday and the waiters sang Happy Birthday. As it was my husband's birthday the day after we went he was happy.

              Service

              Looking for the best? It's The Ritz
              We arrived at 5pm for Drinks in the bar followed by dinner. My car was taken away and returned to me 5 hours later, I may be wrong but it looked cleaner that when it arrived! Our reservation whisked us to a reserved table in the bar and service was swift, exact and controlled. In the business of the Ritz, the staff created a cloud of peace around us and our pre-lunch table. After an hour my two guests and I were shown to our table in the restaurant and from that moment, we enjoyed the best service, food, drinks and ambience I have ever been privileged to witness. OK it was busy and a little noisy but it was a Saturday and I am sure a weekday would give a quieter dinner experience but as it was my birthday I was happy to celebrate with like minded patrons.

              It was a faultless evening, finished with a specially made birthday cake with my name on top and a beautiful RITZ box in which to take it away.

              Perfection.

                      What more can you say that it lives up to its name of one of the worlds most elegant restaurants. From the moment we arrived we were treated to a sublime dining experience. Beautiful food and surroundings and of course very attentive staff

                          Afternoon Tea
                          My second visit this year for Afternoon Tea for my daughters birthday this time.
                          Once again the ambience and the tea was excellent,
                          we had paid extra for the Carol Singing which was not for that long,but pleasant.
                          When we were seated we were introduced to our waiter who would be looking after us for the experience. However we were left quite awhile and had several other waiters during the one and a half hours, meaning at times we were pouring our own tea and waiting to order more unlike our first experience in April and in expected for the experience when paying £160 for 2.
                          In this case twice enough won’t be returning.

                            Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, conpliments a matinee performance in Theatre Land. We've celebrated two hen parties at The Ritz & enjoyed many a birthday dinner here also. The Ritz, is the epitome of class; the traditional stylish interior never goes out of style & the food is exceptional. All staff are incredibly accommodating & trained to the highest of standards. Such a polite, friendly & luxury atmosphere. Tea at The Ritz, is unbeatable by any other establishment.

                              Did not stay overnight at the Ritz. Visited with family as a treat for my birthday. It was so good. The small sandwiches the desserts the environment. The music was amazing. And you could have as much as you wanted!

                                Truly sumptuous surrounding for a beautiful afternoon tea. Lovely selection of sandwiches, the most beautiful scones and decadent cakes and desserts. Continuously replenished and the most amazing selection of teas served in stunning silver tea pots and the finest china crockery.
                                Lovely to also have a pianist playing in the background. Everyone celebrating a birthday was then presented with a beautiful personalised birthday cake, which was later boxed to take home.
                                The best afternoon tea i have ever had.

                                  FAB-U-LOUS!!!!
                                  We were here for my mums 80th birthday 2 weeks ago, we had a function room to ourselves with the table beautifully set for a surprise champagne afternoon tea.
                                  My mum was over the moon, it was a complete surprise and she loved every minute.
                                  The staff went the extra mile to ensure the afternoon went well, nothing was too much trouble and I could not fault a single thing. The beautifully presented cakes were minuscule mouthfuls of heaven which kept coming, and the warm scones were light as a feather.
                                  The hotel itself is breathtaking, the foyer was bustling and charming, there were singers carolling around a piano, people arriving, people leaving and people sitting having coffee, there is a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere - the Christmas decorations were beautiful and it was an afternoon we will all remember forever. This is one of the most iconic hotels in the world, the opulence is obvious for all to see, just fabulous.
                                  Well done all the staff at The Ritz, you were amazing!!

                                    Spent a night at The Ritz 1 as a wedding present which proved very romantic. We had a lovely lunch in The Rivoli Bar then went out to dinner at The Ivy. When we returned our room was filled with beautiful petals. We loved every moment. The staff were so sweet and the breakfast to die for.

                                      We were busy in the afternoon so we took the decision to go for the last sitting of the day and what a delightful time we had.The staff were so professional with a little relaxation kicking in due to the end of the day. As the end drew neigh and the tables were emptying we really enjoyed the magic of the day without the pressure of having to vacate the table, a delightful event

                                            Popped to the Ritz for a glass of champagne to celebrate our special birthdays. From the greeting by the doorman to the attentive service of the bar staff, it was a fabulous experience enjoying the champagne whilst watching the comings and goings. Plus there were carol singers too and wonderful Christmas decorations. Faultless as you would expect.

                                              Putting on The Ritz.....One Night Only
                                              Staying for one night only to celebrate a "big" birthday, we couldn't have done better.

                                              This is a spectacularly opulent hotel, has beautifully decorated public areas, lobbies, bedrooms, dining rooms, cigar lounge and an amazing ornate casino below stairs.

                                              Afternoon Tea was a highlight while a songstress sang "Putting on The Ritz" with grand piano accompaniment in the background.

                                              Breakfast was wonderful and the dining room was pickled with familiar celeb faces...

                                              Try the Beluga Caviar Breakfast if you are feeling generous though at €700 per head, we stuck to the general menu.

                                              What really blew us away about The Ritz was not all the lavish opulence that goes hand in hand with a luxury hotel but the staff that work there.

                                              No stuffiness, pomp or ceremony The staff were world class, so friendly, helpful and sincere....!

                                              Michael the porter from Cork, Ireland is a legend and he made our welcome so special. He even grabbed a friendly local celeb and piled him in for a photo when we were leaving.

                                              Some things really are worth it.

                                                The afternoon tea experience was brilliant! Really enjoyed the "British" hospitality! Ambience was par excellence! The food and tea were very "British".. ☺ I didn't quite understand the need to wear proper shoes or jackets and ties etc because London is a cosmopolitan city and tourist come here around the year. Very rarely do tourist carry jackets and ties etc as they have come for holidays! It seems embarrassing to be given old worn out jackets, ties and shoes just to please the management and perhaps to uphold tradition! This is my opinion only because the tie I got from the counter was really worn out and badly torn from the bottom and I suppose I looked badly out of place with it then I would have without it!

                                                            I came here with my colleagues for Christmas Afternoon Tea on the 5th December 2018.
                                                            Walking into the building feels like being in a fairy tale: The Christmas decorations are so beautiful, and they had a pianist, violinist, and a choir playing/singing Christmas songs.
                                                            When arriving to the Palm Court we were greeted by our host Sebastian, who took us to the table that they prepared for us.
                                                            There was 8 of us in our party with different dietary requirements: gluten intolerants, vegetarians, and pescatarians, and this wasn't a problem at all.
                                                            After our Afternoon Tea we were lucky enough to get a table at the bar, and decided to go for a cocktail. The service was excellent here as well, and we felt very looked after.
                                                            It has always been a dream of mine to come here, and I'm so happy that it exceeded my expectations.

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the service to our table felt off. We noticed other tables getting very attentive service while we sat there. Other tables were given beautiful to-go boxes with their leftover tea treats and we we're not offered anything. Felt slightly disappointing especially given how expensive this was. This would not stop us from having afternoon tea there again.

                                                                  Having read about and viewed The Ritz on numerous occasions, I finally made it through the door to this outstanding establishment as a Birthday treat with my wife for Afternoon Tea.

                                                                  Afternoon Tea is many things to many people although having witnessed my fair share, I must say that Afternoon Tea at The Ritz stands head and shoulders above the rest.

                                                                  Firstly the ambience within the building cannot be matched, then there is the fare that is served so, so well indeed.

                                                                  Our waiter, Valerio who we found to be knowledgeable, friendly and affable, gave outstanding service.
                                                                  Valerio is an absolute credit to The Ritz and projects,without effort, the air of professionalism that is required by his employer.

                                                                  Our sandwiches, cakes, scones & tea were served and topped up with aplomb and thoroughly enjoyed.

                                                                  We look forward to our next visit some time soon.

                                                                    It's always a pleasure to visit the Ritz.
                                                                    I've been there few times with some friends for a couple of drinks.
                                                                    Antonio gave us an amazing experience, very professional and very passionate about his job, he described us every single cocktail he served us and the story behind them.
                                                                    Lovely atmosphere, and lovely environment.

                                                                          Amazing atmosphere too.

                                                                              The location was central. It was close to enough to major attractions, subway stations, shopping and food restaurants.

                                                                                    ロンドンには多くの5つ星があり、どこも素晴らしいのですがこのホテルはパリのようなスノッブさはなくフレンドリーで しかもとても便利というロケーションで気に入りました。朝食も充実していて2フライドエッグのsunny side up をリクエストしてもちゃんと付け合わせも載せて出してくれるなど心に響くサービスでした。外には可愛いリスが朝の挨拶に来てくれたりします。

                                                                                        The hotel is quintessentially Old English and steeped in both quality and tradition. The service is immaculate, the staff almost know what you want before you do, but are in no way overbearing or over attentive.
                                                                                        The rooms are excellent, with shutters, nets and curtains to keep in the warmth and shut out any noise. The beds are soft and luxurious, the bathrooms are spacious and well appointed.
                                                                                        A nightcap in their own casino, proved a financial success, although not for everyone in there!
                                                                                        Breakfast was just perfect, enough said.

Had been travelling all month and booked into The Ritz for our last night in London before the long flight home. Started the Ritz Hotel Experience with afternoon tea which was a gastronomical feast - every sandwich, mince pie, scone, and sweet treat was delicious and so beautifully presented at the table. Service was simply outstanding. Complete with carolling and champagne, The Ritz Christmas High Tea was truly an English experience. Our room was not ready at check in time, so we were treated to complimentary champagne and nibbles while we waited - for just 10mins. The Ritz certainly trains all their staff so well - the service from every employee was outstanding. Every employee we met called us by our name - truly wonderful and rare. The room was king size, opulent and all you would expect at The Ritz. The staff helped us a great deal when we were departing for the airport and nothing was too much trouble. When you travel to London, make sure you get to enjoy at least one memorable night at The Ritz - you will never forget the experience.

Food was very good, not the best I've ever had, but it was up there. Stunning breakfast (have the rice pudding!!!!!!) dinner and breakfast are in the main dining room which is stunning, especially at this time of year with all the Christmas decorations. I can't recommend this hotel and restaurant (and bar) highly enough.

                                                                                                  Booked for Afternoon Tea several months prior to our visit so we would not be disappointed.
                                                                                                  We were lucky enough to get a good deal with wowcher.

Greeted as we stepped in, booked in for our reservation which we turned up early for, so we were shown to the bar by our own choice.
                                                                                                  Once our time came around we were shown to our table in the palm court.
                                                                                                  Everything on offer was delicious and plentiful. The pianist played whilst we sat and ate which was enjoyable.
                                                                                                  Staff were very polite and helpful.
                                                                                                  Everyone is treated the same regardless of how much it has cost them. Felt very special.
                                                                                                  I would definitely recommend and visit again.
