The Ritz Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The Ritz has unquestionably one of the most beautiful dining rooms in London. It’s stately home-style, awash with pinks and golds, sporting a magnificent trompe l'œil painted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the terrace where you can eat in the summer. Service is pretty stately, too, with waiters gliding around to cater to your every wish. Chef John Williams continues to champion the British way with skill, sourcing the best meat and vegetables. His cooking has become steadily more adventurous and the result is a fine rendering. It is expensive: a starter of seared scallops with smoked eel, bacon and watercress £24, and pea and ham soup with quail egg beignet and almonds at £18. But hey ho, if you’re here you can certainly afford it and given the quality of the cooking, it is worth it. Continue with the likes of Dover sole with raisins, verjus and lobster fricassée or a classic tournedos of beef with creamed mushrooms. The wine list, which is long and pricey, weighs in with the best France has to offer (starting with five pages of Champagnes). The collection of Bordeaux is among the best you can find in the U.K. Set 3-course lunch £39, dinner 3 courses £48, 4 courses £65; Fri.-Sat. dinner dance £95.
