    Had breakfast before 1pm show at Academy of Music. Food was good but service was terrible. Waited to be seated while restaurant was nearly empty. All service was delayed despite others around us who arrived after being served. Food was good but not of the quality I’d expect at a Ritz Carleton.

    We visited on a Saturday afternoon and was not aware of a prefix brunch menu as it does not state this on the website. The service was below average coming from a Ritz Carlton restaurant very slow waitress which lacked on our never ending mimosas. Ambiance was ok. We thought we found a good location but was disappointed as I was looking forward to their normal menu.

    Appetizers were good; especially the Prawns. However, the entrees were not worth the value. My wife's salmon called for cauliflower puree but it was barely visible. My sea bass was filled with bones which made it difficult to enjoy.

    The atmosphere was more than I’d ever imagined. The restaurant is beautiful, waitstaff is friendly and food is amazing. I’m not a big drinker so I got something basic but my date got a lemon drop and she loved it. Price is reasonable considering how amazing the food the atmosphere is🥰

    Loved being in the lobby, ambiance was lovely. We had the ceasar salad, strip and sea bass. All were excellent. Shared the chocolate cake. Order the pitas which were nice and salty. Portions are large. Wonderful dining experience.

    Great food. An aloof unexplained 'tube by waitstaff. Not welcoming. Great half rack of lamb. Stingy wine pour. Maybe it was me. Felt unwelcome.

    Our server ignored us the entire time in a half empty restaurant. Disappointing because the appetizers were delicious, but if “endless bubbles” means 1 mimosa an hour because that’s as often as your server comes by then I can’t recommend.

    We did the bottomless brunch which is a great value. The food was fantastic. We had a bit of a wait for our waiter after being sat. We were sat in the bar area instead of the main dining area which was not ideal. Overall, great experience and even better food/drinks.

    The food was amazing, and the service was on par. Yhis evening we were out celebrating my wife's birthday and were joined by her older sister and her boyfriend from New York. Thr ambiance was fitting! We ordered the lamb, the salmon, the sea bass and the chicken and I must say everything was phenomenal. We all shared morsels and we raved how great each diah tasted. The tripple chocolate cake was delectable. My only gripe (if you can call it that) is the old fashions we had were hurriedly made and weren't well mixed. We will be back!!

    Service was fantastic from the waitress. The swordfish dip, smoked oysters, corn empanadas, and ceviche were delicious. Cocktails are done right with taste and presentation. Had a delicious chocolate cake and coffee. Although we are early I was surprised that the dining room was pretty empty, especially when we thought we’d be 15 min late I tried to update the reservation and open table showed nothing else open after 5 pm. Very expensive tho.

    Service was very slow. Our appetizers were pretty good. Entrees we’re not good at all. I had the sea bass that had way too much smoke on it and wasn’t seasoned properly. My friend had the scallops with pork belly and it was too salty. The chocolate cake was sub par. This place is more of a drinks and apps place.

    A case study in how inertia and a supreme lack of effort can lead to the downfall of a brand. The service was slow and perfunctory, and the main dish was abysmal — a lengthy wait for soggy(!!??), lukewarm fish (served with perplexing fanfare, given how poor it ultimately was). The ambience of the lobby/restaurant showed a complementary inattention, and I can’t help but comment that the doormen were focused on their phones when I arrived and when I departed, rather than greeting or opening the door. I would hope that the hotel’s general manager would be embarrassed to know what is being delivered to the tables, and recognize the erosion of the Ritz-Carlton brand through such terrible under-performance. I won’t cry over the stunning fall of this once-great brand, but the owners and managers should.

    Overall, definitely recommend. BUT keep in mind the brunch special does not start until 12PM. Luckily our server let us start bottomless mimosas early, but we did have to wait to put in our main courses. The pictures make it look more fancy than it is, but it is a good vibe. It’s in the lobby of the Ritz Carlton, not a closed in space like expected. We were nervous that we were underdressed, but it all ended up working out. I would go back!

    Disappointing. Nothing in the experience was bad, just disappointing. Nothing outstanding, nothing memorable. Nothing worthy of note, and at this price point and being in a Ritz-Carlton hotel I expected more. Many aspects of the food and service left us disappointed. The food was okay. The service was average and many of the details were off. The seating was poor. The table was wobbly. The knives were dull. Again, not a bad experience, just not what I expect from a restaurant in a Ritz-Carlton hotel. The details can make or break a fine dining experience and it definitely broke this one. I would not recommend and don't expect to dine here again with so many fine options nearby

    Great service! easy clean nice location. For the bottomless, $70 PER PERSON got you assorted pastries and fruit parfait, TERRIBLE second course toasts.. the toppings were horrid and a big waste for our table. Third course (chosen main meal) was decent but not even that much food. The churros which we were most excited for did not live up to expectations. Tried the kir royal but wasn’t impressed. So switched over to classic mimosas. They were fine. Nothing super crazy. Didn’t see any outdoor area seating. Literally just in the lobby of ritz carlton. Do not think I would return.
