Reviewed 23 July 2014

Visited the bar whilst waiting for our afternoon tea slot. Lovely surroundings and good service but a little overpriced. Wait for the champagne in the Palm court with your tea its cheaper .

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We recently visited the Ritz to attend the Rivoli Bar for some afternoon drinks, the whole atmosphere was fantastic as well as the staff were extremely friendly and helpful

This place is well worth a visit if you would like to have a relaxed afternoon surrounded beautifully designed furnishings

I have recently added a blog about my trip there, so it will give you an idea of what to expect

“Fabulous Cocktails - Spoil Yourself !”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We visited the Rivoli Bar earlier in the week prior to a Film Preview event at BAFTA and it was a fabulous experience. Really atmospheric in an art-deco way it was a great way to spend an hour soaking in the ambiance.

The service was impeccable and we got carried away and enjoyed the first cocktails so much we had another ! Each drink was served with a selection of "nibbles" to enjoy - expensive as you would expect but as a one-a-year treat - just do it !!!

“squashed in a corner”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Long planned celebration of my birthday and daughter's divorce, plus meeting up with her brother and his new girlfriend, did not live up to expectations. Not one of the three doormen lounging in the entrance could be bothered to open the door to the cocktail lounge for us and when we arrived we were seated at table for two in a corner - despite saying we were expecting two others. The promised table for four did not materialise although tables did become vacant.

The cocktails were good though.
