We went to GBL because $40 cab rides were starting to take their toll. This is our first time staying at a Ritz property and we are far from impressed with the quality and selection of food offered at this resort. GBL seems to be billed as the fine dining establishment on the property. This it is not. While the... More

My opinion is the majority opinion talking to other guests over the last years of visiting and staff as well. The food outlets here at the Ritz are so below what we have to expect from the Ritz Brand. I I ate here three weeks ago to give the sushi another try; the girl behind the sushi bar didn't speak...

My wife and I spent 5 days at the Ritz Carlton resort and discovered the best dining was at the GBL. We met Chef Oscar who created a spicy noodle appetizer to accompany the dim sum - simply amazing. He is creative in presentation but focused on taste and texture - don't miss it.

While the food was excellent, it was noisy and the service very slow. I have residence at the Ritz, so have been here many times and while I expect the prices to be high. Frankly I think I would rather get on my car and go off site where there are better choices.

Attentive service but the food is poor quality especially for the price. Had to send one back for off taste. Buffet closely controlled proteins. If you are not staying at the resort, you get slower service and seated in poor location. Used to be a favorite but will no longer go. New management has certainly made us feel less welcome.... More

Yum! Food is so good here and great options - entrees, fish, sushi, apps, amazing fresh wantons instead of bread, fantastic desserts. Prices are steep, but that's what you get for eating at the Ritz. Service was fantastic (wish I remembered our server's name, was a girl probably in her 30's from the States). Portion sizes are really nice. Kitchen... More

Think of a cheapest mall. Next, think of a food court on it. Next - an oriental place there. Add waitresses, long wait for everything. Got it? Now take the price and multiply by eight or so. Great! You've got Great Bay Lounge. Horrific food, long wait even with reservation to be seated, wait staff that disappears forever. Wines that... More

Great spot for right after the sunset. I had some really good sushi there. The guy doing the rolling turned me onto sea urchin for the first time. Loved it. A great number of wines by the glass and specialty martinis. Really good desserts as well.

Ate here twice during our stay at the Ritz. The first night was amazing. My husband had made reservations for my birthday and we were pampered. I ordered the mussels and my husband had the fish special (sea bass and snapper combo). Both fairly generous portions and very tasty. 3 nights later we went back and I ordered the Greek... More

Very overpriced. Minimal selections. Out of fresh fish offerings. Noodle station night was $35 per person and buffet was ver disappointing! We will not return. This is not Ritz quality. Need new chef.
