We went on a saturday night for a quiet anniversary dinner, and quiet it was it was not crowded as we expected it to be and there was a live band playing which was very entertaining. The service is spectacular (the waiters and waitresses are overly courteous) The food is great we had the pacific salmon and mahi mahi. We regret going at night because we sat in front of those awesome gigantic windows but it was dark so we could not enjoy the view... Definetely recommend this restaurant the food and service is exceptional! The only thing i didnt like was the restaurant would get crowded every now and then with guests who were waiting to take the elevator to their rooms(it kid of feels awkward) but other then that everything was perfect. they even brought us a surprise pastry for our anniversary which was pretty nice!

The Seafood Night on Fridays at the Ritz Carlton was the biggest disappontment of the year so far. I decided to go with a friend after reading that 162 won best brunch for 2 years in a row. What a mistake that was. We frequent the St. Regis brunch, which is magnificent. There was no comparison. All there was in the buffet was seafood. The desserts were disgusting, and I couldn't cut through the salmon with a fork. I've learned my lesson. When you find a winner, stick with it. This place needs to take some lessons from the new kid on the block, so to speak. Service was wonderful, I must say, as it should when you're paying $100 per person (after tax and tip). The ambience is very poor. It's like they didn't know where to put the restaurant, so they stuck it in a hallway on the way to the guest room elevators. Every guest must walk through the "restaurant" to get to the elevators. Poor design.

The Pinot Georgio is great. Lunch for three cost 126.00 dollars. The view is not of the ocean, but of the pool area if you want to sit outside. The only good thing on the menu is the fish for $30.00. I had the chicken sandwich and it was dry. The food is not good for the money during lunch. Dinner might be good. The Wine Tasting Room or the Lounge Bar for dinner is a better choice. Martini's are $10.50.
