I only had a coffee in the Lobby Lounge as I was a guest in the hotel. The coffee was $15USD and I didn't go back. I felt that was too much to pay for a cup of coffee given the stale smoke smell that you have to endure.

Dear 2741Bodensee Thank you very much for taking the time to share you experience in the lobby lounge and rest assured that we are working to find solution to the smoking smell. Even though our Lobby Lounge isn't a smoking venue, the smoke coming from the bar where smoking is allowed from 11am to midnight sometimes remain the following morning.... More

Got our corp rate, decided it to check it out. With this price in Tokyo, things were ok. The food was a bit weak at the bar on top....

We really loved visiting the Lobby Lounge & Bar at the Ritz-Carlton. There is comfortable seating with beautiful views from the tall, wide wall of windows. We didn't eat, but the food and desserts looked delicious. We sat at the bar and had cocktails several times. They had a great selection of bourbons for my husband. I ordered a different... More

The first day we visited, the drinks were delicious and the service and ambiance were great. A second time we went and their Moscow Mule was horrible! You do get amazing views, but almost every luxury hotel lobby in Tokyo has that, so I recommend going more to the Aman, the Mandarin Oriental or the Park Hyatt.

The cocktails run about 2 times the price as the best places back home, but the view is phenomenal and they do *not* rush you at all, so you can linger over your drink and enjoy the views, the music (live after 8p), and just relax. The burger is good, not great, but shareable. Pleasant, unobtrusive service.

We love this incredible lobby bar. You have to understand you're in the Ritz Carlton and looking out at an amazing view, thus the drinks are going to be expensive. This said, the ambiance is elegant, the music usually wonderful, and it all adds up to a great feeling. Worth a visit for sure!!
