Good but very pricy

we went in to have a couple of appetizers and my husband ordered a bottle of wine. We shared a bowl of clam chowder and some heirloom tomatoes, they were both very good. We really enjoyed ourselves, but for what we got, it was very pricy.

We wanted a late lunch/early dinner after my husband played golf at the Ritz Carlton course, and The Conservatory was perfect. We had a wonderful view of the ocean, and the food choices filled the bill for us. I had the clam chowder (tasty, but little thin) and green salad with strawberries, goat cheese and nuts (excellent). My husband's burger... More

The food was not tasty and the service wasn't as friendly as expected. We had a mix of dinner items (Pasta, Fish, meat) and it didnt have the right taste and the preparation wasn't ideal either.

Well appointed lounge where you can relax and enjoy a drink and nice conversation. The food is wondeful and incorporates locally grown foods.

The food was prepared and presented well, as you would expect at a Ritz property. We ate at the hotel several times during our stay and were not disappointed with anything.

The restaurant is conveniently located near the lobby and is first come, first serve. No reservations. Service is prompt and the staff are helpful. The menu had seasonal and locally ingredients for both starters and entrees. Prices are on the high side, but reflects the resort setting.

Took my Mom to the RCHMB for day-before-Mother's Day; everything was booked up for Sunday. The hotel has hosted my Mom & Dad before for special occasions. - it's her favorite. We had a party of 6, and they seated us with no wait, next to the window. Coincidentally there was a Indian wedding outside that everyone got to see.... More

This place was the gathering spot for most guest throughout the day. Reading a book by the fire, having lunch or dinner and/or relaxing with a glass of wine, it was always a warm and welcome environment.

We went for an appetizer, drinks and the atmosphere and we're not disappointed. I love this place! We sat in the bar and had a view of the golf course and ocean. If it had been a little warmer we would have chosen the outdoor patio though. Our food was fantastic, a shared shrimp and calamari appetizer. The wine is... More
