It was my daughter's 16th Birthday, and felt that by marking this occasion with lunch at The Ritz would be a special treat for her. From the moment we arrived right through to the end of our dining experience, we felt totally spoilt by the staff that attended to us. We were particularly impressed by one young female sommelier who not only was she professional and very personable, to our surprise, she had only been working there for over a week. She was very engaging with my daughter explaining how she got to where she was and was really kind of her to make the extra effort to drop by our table for the last time especially to wish my daughter good luck in her GCSE year and birthday wishes. This made my daughter's first experience at The Ritz, feel extra special as you would always had imagine it to be!

Booked for four of us for a Ruby wedding anniversary. Asked for table by window as it was a special celebration, which we got, plus a surprise cake at the end of the meal. We had the six course surprise lunch and it was faultless. Everything about the experience was fantastic.

Really great food and overall the experience was excellent. I had booked this because I really wanted a special meal while we were in London and my first thought was afternoon tea but could not get this at areasonable time. It was booked just before our departure and in the rush I didn't read the booking properly so didn't realise my husband needed a jacket and tie. No problem the lovely lady in charge of the cloakroom provided a choice of ties and a jacket in the size requested. Waiters were attentive without rushing you and the addition of canapes and petit fours to the 3 course lunch made it areally substantial lunch with great ambiance.

We loved the experience apart from not receiving the glass of champagne that was advertised as part of the offer. When we asked about this at the end of our meal we were told by the waiter that we had to book our table by an earlier date (I think the waiter said 13th July), even though on the Bookatable website it stated to book by 25th July, which we did. This was very disappointing as it was a Birthday treat and I visited a few years ago and loved the experience. Bookatable dclearly staed the offer was three courses and a glass of champagne for £49 per person.

It was our Silver Wedding Anniversary and we took our two children with us to celebrate. We had not been to the Ritz before, but our daughter had and based on her experience we booked a lunch. We arrived early and had plenty of time for cocktails from the bar first. For lunch, we selected our meal form the set menu, and washed it down with a bottle of house champagne. There was sufficient choice for all of us and the quality of the food, together with the attentive service, were both excellent. A perfect choice for a special celebration.
