We came here before the Black and White ball and the service was amazing. The food was even better. The chef prepared a great meal for us and the wine we had was delicious. A perfect night.

Pricy but the lamb and oyster are not bad. Very romantic too. Reservation needed. Wine selection is great as well.

I came here with my husband on my 40th birthday. The food was wonderful, the service was super! It is probably the best upscale restaurant in the Bay Area. It worthes every penny. If you want to impress someone special on a special occasion, bring her to The Dining Room.

I'm sorry to see the negative reviews a few people wrote about The Dining Room. I myself (and my fiance) have nothing but fabulous things to say about this favorite restaurant of ours. The service is top notch, they really make you feel like "true royalties" for a night. The only other restaurant in this class that has provided us with equally impeccable customer service is Masa's. Many other ones we've been to have either snobby attitudes, as if it's *your* honor to dine there, or they make you wait for 30-60 minutes even though you already have a reservation. At The Dining Room, there is no such unpleasant-ness. From the very first minute they greet you to the last minute of the night, you're truly *pampered*. The food is incredible. Well-balanced flavors, freshness you can taste, the chefs at The Dining Room are truly masters of fine cuisine. The atmosphere is elegant, refined, high class WITHOUT being uptight. Every dollar spent there is 110% worth it. We would go back again and again.

If I could sum it up in one word, it would be arrogant. The chef used obscure flavors and ingredients just for the sake of being "creative," but rarely did they compliment each other. Sea urchin parfait drizzled with vanilla infused olive oil -- come on now. If you're going to flaunt your skills, at least create something that tastes the part. We all felt as if the food was there just to impress, but never actually delivered. I had the black bass with octopus raviolli, topped with squid shavings - rounding out the evening with 9 varieties of mediocre seafood. My fiance had the filet, which was itself nice, but then they had to go and top it with a dollup of bone marrow. She said it was like eating fried lard. If you're going to go somewhere this expensive, try Gary Danko, where the food fits the bill.

You will spend a lot of money, so if you can accept that, you'll be in for an evening of joyful decadence, classic service, and excellent food. The Sommelier is fantastic and I heartily recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing (do not plan to drive home). Chef Seigel is fantastic (the old chef was great, but less inventive). It was a load of fun, especially if you can take over-the-top service with graceful amusement, because there is always someone at your shoulder. Start with some champagne or a glass of scotch from their impressive single malt selection. The only thing off was our amuse bouche, but everything else was perfect. Enjoy yourself here with your sweetie, we sure did.

After reading/hearing so many rave reviews of the dining room, we were a bit disappointed with our own experience. We ordered the 6 course tasting menu, and while the food was quite good, I have paid far less for far better gourmet food. The service was unsurpassed and the Sommelier, Stephane, was very helpful. For $650, and the pedigree of the chef, I would have expected more from the food. Flavoring was very bland. Maybe we just hit an off day for the chef.

I went to The Dining on Sat. night after deciding btwn. it and Campton Place and left with mixed feelings.
The hosts were on top of their game of course and my girlfriend and I were greeted and seated as if we belonged there.
Our head server was dissappointing. When I ordered the tasting menu and asked about wine pairing he acted as if that was almost unheard of; overly stuffy and very young hmm... The back waiter however was amazing and I only wish he was our waiter.
We both had the 9 course tasting menu and while it was good nothing from the evening really sticks out to me from it. I'd say the most impressive thing was the wine that Stephan the very nice and informative Sommelior chose for our meal.
In a nutshell the food was good but my server detracted from the $540 experience

Absolutely amazing in every sense. I cannot express enough on how much we enjoyed ourselves, so much infact, my heart is pitter-pattering as I write. We ordered the Chef's tasting menu. Not only did Chef Ron Seigel give us a different item for each course, we rec'd additional courses & 3 additional amuse bouches, plus a tour of the kitchen. I also Also ordered wine pairings & rec'd an additional glass from the Sommelier. Not only was Laurent, our dining Captain a joy, so were the rest of the staff. To make it even more exciting -we had the joy of dining, not with but in the same room, as Mr. Fresh Prince of Bel Air, his wife, Mr. TopGun & his soon-to-be Mrs. We couldn't have experience a more pleasurable gastronomic delight. I feel honored to have been a patron. It was truly an amazing experience!

This is what life is all about, amazing service, ambiance and food. The service is flawless and so is the sommelier with his pairings. I was not happy when Portay, the past chef, left but have been thrilled at everything Ron Seigel places at my table. As one other city searcher put it, "Ron is the Bomb!"

I was highly impressed with my first visit. I splurged and did the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Almost all the dishes was creative and showcased the chefs mastery. Highlights were the two fish dishes, Japanese butterfish and lobster, and the two meat dishes, quail and beef. There was also a luxurious foie gras in a peach vanilla butter sauce. The portions were surprisingly large compared to other tasting menus Ive had. The wine pairings were superb. The service was flawless. The atmosphere of the hotel and its lush dining room is a bit over the top, but I found it more amusing than bothersome.

I took my fiancé here for birthday dinner since he had taken me to so many wonderful high end dining experiences. We tried the 9 course meal to experience the chef's artistry but would have been fine with a 3 course meal and happier.

The food was only good & we often felt inundated with the tastes too competitive with one another. There was no creative flow to the meal. We don't feel the need to return.

The service was EXCELLENT -absolutely attentive, perfect, & never ever overbearing. Our waiter was charming & amusing & suggested perfect wine choices suited to our taste.

The problem here is name & diamond rating forms an expectation-should be world class & sadly still felt like hotel fare.

If you have the bucks, check it out. If it's a stretch, there are better places for your special occasion dollars.

Disappointing...

Going in with high expectations, we left disappointed and confused. All was not amiss though, some dishes were executed flawlessly and the service was outstanding but when you go to the only five star restaurant in the city...YOU EXPECT PERFECTION!!! The cauliflower soup amuse~bouche was flat and flavorless & too thick undoubtedly because it was served luke warm. My lobster ravioli though was cooked perfectly & paired flawlessly with a coconut curry sauce, sauteed pearl onions & sugar snap peas. The Hot Foie Gras was good but the spiced cherries it was paired with were mediocre. What spice??? One guest ordered the ribeye, medium-rare but he was presented one that was barely medium...how can you make that mistake??? The list goes on but there was a light at the end of the tunnel...The Dessert!!! Absolutely amazing. From the Strawberries Cosmopolitan to the Lavendar Panna Cotta...yum, yum, yum.

We're definitely foodies, and this place did not disappoint! Everything, from service to presentation to taste was fabulous. Timing of courses was perfect as well. We each ordered the 9-course tasting menu, which was different for each of us (so 18 different plates in all!)... every single one was tremendous. My personal favorite was the seared fois gras with huckleberry reduction. The final courses sent us over the edge, but not enough to say no to the unbelievable desserts. Plan on a 3-hour dinner. My only complaint... wish we weren't the last patrons at 11:45 on a Sat night.

I've never eaten here so I can't comment about how it compares to when Ron Siegel wasn't here. I just went for my birthday and had a wonderful time. We had a great waiter. A nice touch was that all the staff knew my last name and greeted me with "Mr. .."The 9 course tasting meal was fantastic with good timing. My girlfirend and I each got different courses so we got to share and enjoy 18 courses. They were all wonderful. Abalone carpachio, squab/sweetbread.. My girlfriend loved her wine pairing. Overall, one of the best places we've eaten at for a special occasion.

I have been to the Dining Room in the past, and it has blown me away, to the point of making Valentine reservations 3 months in advance. I was really looking forward to it, even at a $160/plate prix fixe.

Unfortunately, the special Valentine menu was more of a novelty than a culinary achievement. The dishes were all meant to be eaten by hand, and were innovative, but the execution was lacking. For example, there was a "Fish and Chips" course where the fish was greasy and bland, and the sauce was nice but not amazing. The dessert was "Chocolate Hamburger," which looked very cool, but was virtually inedible - a chocolate paste and raspberry sauce (the "ketchup") sandwiched between two dry buns.

At $450 (without wine!) for two, it was a great disappointment.

We had our anniversary dinner (1st french restaurant since we returned to the bay area) and it was an unforgettable experience! The Bay scallops were excellent and the duck was the juiciest I've tasted. The dessert were quite good (although we had higher expectations after such wonderful entrees!) Service was impeccable and I definitely recommend anyone to celebrate their most special occasions at the Ritz.

We started off with the lobster salad which is so good. Generous amounts of lobster and perfect flavor. We also had the braised beef with melon appetizer - unreal - so good.

For the main course, she had the striped bass which was quite good, and I had the herb stuffed rabbit shoulder. The rabbit was simply amazing.

Dessert was okay. We had the chocolate hazlenut concoction, as well as the rasberry mille fuille - basically layers of pastry, fruit and cream. Very good but not quite the big bang ending we were hoping for.

Service was excellent. The formality thing is a bit much for me. My GF is not "madame," and I don't need a new napkin everytime I set mine down. Still, top notch

I recently had the pleasure of dining at the Ritz-Carlton dining room...Most people's first thought when you speak of the ritz is "stuffy with a server looking over your shoulder every two seconds." Absolutely the opposite- the room was completely relaxed, the service gracious and extremely friendly, and the food was amazing- especially the wonderful selection of cheeses...And all this before the dessert! The dessert, I have to say, was the best I have yet to have in the city...or ever, for that matter...I would recommend the ritz to anyone and everyone...

Amazing food, amazing ambiance, just overall an amazing experience. I have lived in Europe most of my life and being in France as long as I was, nothing came close to this! Wonderful!

Pros: service, ambience, lobster salaad

Cons: no separate entrance, decor needs updating, ultra traditional

Not stuffy at all, I expected attitude going in and coming out but not at all. the staff was personal chatty when we wanted to talk and the timing of the food was flawless. The sommelier guided us through so many great wines by the glass that we never even ordered a bottle of their amazing list -$$$. The food though was pretty basic, I was hoping for the food to stand out, but with the level of service we recieved it couldn't possibly. The staff is clearly Ritz Carlton, but the food is Marriott.

Cons: food dissappointing

I have dined in alot of San Francisco's finer establishments but I have to say without a doubt The Dining Room was my most memorable experience in a long time. The entire evening was truly unforgettable. The Lobster Salad was amazing and the Turbot with asparagus and morels followed by the Rack of lamb with carmelised ribs were truly unforgettable. The wines that the sommelier paired with our dishes were a match made in heaven. We shall return again and again.
