Had breakfast here on the second day of our trip. The coffee, which is Illy, was a real nice thing. Often hotel coffee is bad. The food was well prepared and presented. We ate outside on the terrace, which was a great treat.

On the menu bBelgian waffles that were superb, but pricey. Service excellent, but a lot of training was going on that weekend and I never got the second pot of tea I requested. Still exceptional service.

This is the good restaurant at the Ritz. The food is good and dinning area is cool. The kitchen is open so you can see how food is prepared. The views are relaxing when you dine outside. The breakfast buffet is outstanding: quality food, local, and very diverse. It is better than at other properties. Sometimes the service is slow... More

We had a great dinner but felt the menu was somewhat limited for a rather large hotel's main dining venue. We enjoyed the burrata appetizer and trout tartare. For entree 2 people had the short ribs, one had the duck confit, and I had an appetizer portion of the scallops. Everything was delicious but I still felt the menu was... More

We were in the area and decided we would dine at the restaurant at the Gallery Golf Club. Got there and found they were closed for a special event. Since the Ritz is nearby, we decided to go there instead. Our first choice, Caytons was closed for a special event, so we went to the resort and dined at Core.... More

My wife and I ate at Core for 6 meals (1-dinner and 5 breakfast) and overall found the service very helpful from the seating to waiting the table. They seemed to struggle, however, with volume and uncleaned tables could sit awhile waiting for someone to bus so think they should solve this staffing issue. For dinner, we had reservations outside... More

The Ritz service standard of service is generally high and the Core did not disappoint. Not only did our waiter attend to our every need, but the young lady who helped us at the pool earlier in the day reappeared and provided more assistance. The menu was sufficient, and I chose the chicken dish. It was recommended by the server... More

We had dinner here after a wonderful day of watching a practice round at the Accenture Match Play. Our server Brandon was very attentive if a bit too soft spoken. His attention to detail was much appreciated. All of our dinner selections were prepared excellently. At our table we had butterfish, steak and shrimp and pork. The flavors of each... More
