We arrived in the evening at the Ritz to sample the martini at the Bar Hemingway rated "best in the world" in the Michelin Guide. My experience will remain a highlight of our Paris trip. Firstly the Ritz is nothing short of spectacular in architecture and design. It is impeccable with the most professional, yet accessible staff I have ever seen. It will blow your mind. Secondly, Bar Hemingway is a small "manly", cozy bar that also oozes casual class. Roman was our bartender and is a celebrity in his own riight. He made our martinis with superior expertise, then casually "worked" the room chatting with customers. The room is small, so be warned it may be full if you go during a peak tourist times and events. Be prepared for the sticker shock - these cocktails are 30 euros each, but in my view, well with the experience. Just don't make a night of it!
Had coffee here for an hour or so with a Saudi business acquaintance. All set in fabulous surroundings outside. Inside, a very elegant lady tinkled the ivories. Euros32 for two coffees tells you what you need to know about the place, but then if you have a problem paying Euros16 for a cup of coffee, you really shouldn't bother coming here. This, after all is the Ritz, Paris! Fabulous looking people in one of the world's iconic venues. Would I come back? Mais oui!
On September 18th, my wife and I had the Sunday Buffet Brunch at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, France. We had enjoyed the Sunday Buffet Brunch at the Ritz Paris before their recent renovation and wanted to try the Buffet Brunch at the renovated RItz. So we made the reservation almost two months in advance. We were looking forward to a very enjoyable experience and ended up being extremely disappointed.In summary, the rooms where the brunch is held are beautiful, the food was excellent and beautifully presented; however, the service was so awful as to make the experience unpleasant.Let me explain some of the things that happened.When we were first seated, the waiter came over and began to explain the various options for the buffet and and their associated prices depending of whether you had champagne or special non-alcoholic cocktails. We were unable to follow all the various options. A written menu would be helpful at this point.After we ordered juice and hot beverages, it took thirty-five minutes for my tea to arrive. When my wife's coffee arrived at the table, the hot milk she had ordered was missing and she waited fifteen minutes for the hot milk while her coffee became cold.Soiled plates were not cleared in a reasonable time. At one point after waiting for 10 minutes for plates to be cleared, my wife had to take both of our plates up to the wait station and hand them to the waiter.After plates were cleared and we went back to the buffet, we did not always receive new cutlery. One one occasion my wife received new cutlery and I didn't. On another occasion, after waiting for new cutlery, we had to take it from the settings at an adjoining table before our food got cold.One thing about the presentation of the food that bothered my wife is that the caviar had a silver spoon in it - a metal spoon with caviar?The final problem was when the check came, it showed a charge of 150 Euros per person, instead of the 125 Euros we had been quoted in the email confirming our reservation. When I showed the waiter a copy of the reservation email, the waiter said the 125 Euros was the price for the brunch in L'Espadon. When I pointed out that ther email said the buffet brunch was 125 Euros, he went off and talked to several people and ultimately gave us a bill for 125 Euros per person.While we realize that this was only the second week that the buffet brunch was presented, the level of service was so bad as to make our experience most unpleasant. This was not the standard of service one expects from a hotel like the Ritz Paris.
The Ritz it's a place where you feel class and sophistication !!It's a place full of romance and style, you also can be casual dress and enjoyed the joy to be in a Luxury place, go and spend time in every room of the bar and restaurant.
We had heard that the Ritz in Paris was a must see after it has been renovated at great expense and we were not disappointed.The hotel itself is a work of art, and as such might not be to everybody's taste.But if you like over the top gold decor it is heaven. We took tea at the bar, and it was, as one would expect, executed perfectly.
