Enjoy a drink with a spectacular view.

We came just to have a drink outdoors on the beautiful patio facing the ocean and green golf course. After braving the cold and bundling in their blankets (found draped over adirondack chairs surrounding fire pits on the large patio), we moved inside to the Conservatory.

Great restaurant, service and view. Each waiter/waitress will recommend the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger. Definitely try it. It is well worth it, especially the bacon marmalade. I never knew this existed and now my life will never be the same. The Pappardelle Bolognese was also recommended, but was underwhelming. The Spiced Cherry Margarita was very good.

Located inside the Ritz at Half Moon Bay it is a contemporary American. I had the roasted chicken over polenta with kale. I had a side of roasted shishito peppers that were just hot enough. It was delicious. My husband had the bolognese and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is a great view of the ocean. Service was very attentive. Expensive... More

Wonderful décor concept; tables surrounded by potted foliage. Beautiful ocean views if you are fortunate to get a table by a window. Enjoyable singer and musical accompaniment dinner time. Impeccable service by our waiter Jeffrey. Chef gets an "A" for originality and effort by not for taste. The pea ravioli was tasty but neither filling nor exceptional, especially considering the...

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.

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.

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.
