I don't think the food here is as good as the Ritz-Carlton leads us to believe. I was expecting a wow experience but didn't get it. Breakfast was better than dinner. At dinner I had a side of haricots verts, and they all had stems on them. Gross. I had to cut them off on my own because the kitchen... More

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton for 3 nights recently and I have to say Core was the highlight. We had dinner here twice. The first night was for our one-year anniversary and it was so good we decided to go again the night before we left. Service was impeccable: attentive and friendly. The first night I ordered something that... More

Core's Sunday brunch is heaven on the taste buds! Made to order omelets, fresh fruits, pastries, breakfast meats, and Mexican food options. Mimosa are amazing, is everything offered. A kitchen is open and the chefs are friendly to talk with about the area and food. Do yourself a favor and have brunch Ritz Carlton style at Core.

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

As a treat for my husband's birthday, we went for breakfast and sat outside. The view and surrounding area fantastic! 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

Had breakfast here a few of the days of our stay and I've done many hotel buffets and this was the best! 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.
