It's been about 8 months since we were last I town. We couldn't pss up the opportunity for a great meal at the Ritz. My ahi tuna was prepared perfectly. My husband had the filet and it was also great. They had a peppermint ice cream seasonal dessert that was amazing. We will keep coming back.

If you stay at the Ritz Carlton you are a captive audience as your choices to go off property are very limited. The good news is that Core has great food and an amazing brunch that should not be missed. They have everything form eggs cooked to order and an amazing traditional lox and bagel set up. The pastries are... More

From beginning to end, the experience was excellent: omelette's, toast, potatoes, coffee, mimosas, and complimentary birthday dessert. Service was impeccable -our waiter Cade, was professional and friendly. When paying the bill we were told the mimosas were also complimentary! A... More

I am not a foodie, but I do like to try new things. We had dinner here the last night of our stay. The menu had some exotic sounding things and at first I was intimidated. Our waiter was wonderful and answered all of our questions and was super helpful so that we knew what we were getting. We really... More

Pancakes were fantastic - have them make it fresh - chef told me batter is unique and made fresh each morning. It was outstanding. Everything on buffet was great and staff, as was staff throughout resort, was extremely... More

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
