The Ritz Restaurant • St James’, London

The Ritz Restaurant London is a landmark on Piccadilly. The English fine dining restaurant is one of the world’s most desirable dining experiences, and has been awarded a Michelin star and featured in The Sunday Times “Top 100 Restaurants.”

The opulent décor features sparkling chandeliers, imbuing the restaurant with an aura of timeless grandeur. An elegant terrace is perfect for summer al fresco dining. The Ritz presents classic French cuisine with the finest seasonal British produce. Executive Chef John Williams showcases his sumptuous cuisine with signature dishes like Fillet of Monkfish with lobster fricassee; or Loin of Venison with smoked parsnip and swede.

The Ritz London has a dress code for afternoon tea in The Palm Court and for lunch and dinner in The Ritz Restaurant and Terrace: shorts, sneakers and sportswear are not permitted in any of the hotel or Club’s restaurants or bars. On Friday and Saturday nights, The Ritz holds “Live at The Ritz” – a glamorous dinner dance with a 5-piece live band and a dance floor.
