Well its the Ritz and L'Espadon is the venerable dining room and the best they offer, it does not disappoint, Three menu choices for dinner, an 8 course dinner-a 5 course dinner or a la carte. I went with the ala carte menu and chose no appetizers but two entrees. This gave me a total of five courses because each... More

I dined here with friends this past Saturday. All was perfection. Service, food, atmosphere. I was with friends and we all agreed that the meal was superb. Very comfortable, never rushed and not stuffy. It was a delightful experience to always remember.

Where do you go for an extra special dinner for a special birthday celebration? Paris abounds with wonderful places to eat but if you also want a touch of magic it's very hard to beat the Ritz's fine dining restaurant. Get in the mood with champagne in the Bar Vendome. Then glide seamlessly into L'Espadon. The beauty of the room... More

Awesome experience, if you're ok with the price. The space was recently renovated. It's plush, old-school, gorgeous decor. The staff is very warm and welcoming. We had a long dinner, many courses, Champagne, wine, appetizers, entrees, cheese cart, desserts, it was all awesome. The bread was the best bread I've ever eaten. The Bresse chicken was great. The service was... More

What do I start with...too difficult, too many details and I don't want to write a book. Let's start with the history of this place that started with the grand opening of THE Ritz in 1898. Food and gourmet were almost defined here so it's only fitting that this is sort of a temple to it. The French Regency décor... More

We were disappointed the Ritz was under renovation the last few times we came to Paris. We were ecstatic it's finally open again. We skipped the other casual eatery coz it was noisy and the menu was fast food like. As expected, service at l'espadon was impeccable. Wine list was extensive. Dessert was to die for. However, we were both... More

Sumptuous and luxuriant in everyway. Walking into the one of the most beautiful places to dine is breathtaking. The service is of course at the highest level imagined and the food is out of this world - delicious, beautifully presented and in abundance.

When Chef Nicolas Sale took over after the Ritz Paris renovation, one could wonder what he would make of the legacy of his 9 predecessors, including the legendary Auguste Escoffier, and some others like Bocuse d'Or winner Michel Roth. Coming down from his mountain with two Michelin in each of his restaurants, the Chef has achieved what many would have... More
