Not worth it

Good Italian food and views. Nothing else was working. Yes, Italian. It is no longer the Great Bay Lounge and does not serve sushi. The sushi bar is gone, not that this was a loss. The Sunday brunch used to be fantastic, but that is gone as well. The new Chef does Italian well, the fish was... read more

GBL is located on The Ritz Carlton property and is currently undergoing a renovation, however, we had noodle night in a makeshift location inside the Ritz Carlton lobby area. My wife and I actually liked Noodle Night (chix, beef, shrimp) stir-fry with veggies and desert (cookies and brownies). Overall, the food was very good and the waitstaff and cook were... More

We've stayed at the ritz more than 8 times, here we are in septembers off season,.. The great bay lounge has a very nice view situated centrally on the ritz campus. Nice ambiance, outdoor and indoor seating available. Service was very good, but when you realize they try to add beef to a sushi roll some thing is just off,... More

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....

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
